We operate a camping site in the south of Turkey in a small village called Kekova. We are a married couple Louisa and Ahmet our mum Ayşe also lives and works with us. We have some animals incl.. a goat, cat, dog and some chickens. We are eco friendly. We provide traditional breakfasts and meals to people who come by or to guests camping. We also sell honey and some other local home made products. We are looking for friends who would be willing to spend some time with us helping out with the general day to day work plus help with maintenance and structure work.

UN sustainablity goals this host is trying to achieve
Projects involving children
This project could involve children. For more information see our guidelines and tips here.
we are looking for anyone to help out with the above and also interested in other thaughts and opinions of things we could do. We have a very big piece of land. Our next project is to build a greenhouse and some small cabins to use as accomadation. Because we live in a protected archeological area we have to obide with the building laws which states we cannot use cement, only natural materials so we are limited! We would be so happy to take on ideas for projects which combine with the laws but at the same time meet our needs and not strain our budget.
We have a small shared house which has a room and you can also bring your own tent to stay in. We have a bathroom and shower(outside) and a kitchen. we would provide meals which are eaten altogether. İn the main house there is also a tv and sitting area.
What else ...
We live in a small village based on the Lycian way. There are some restaurants a couple of markets a few pansiyons (b&b), a couple of small cafes and small harbour. The area where we are located is called 'Kekova', famous for its underwater city. There are lots of walking oppurtunities. There is one bus a day which leaves the village every morning for 'Antalya', it departs at 08:00 and stops off at the towns in between. The same bus returns every afternoon leaving 'Antalya' bus station at 14:20.The journey takes around three and a half hours but by car takes two-two and a half hours. The nearest town to the east is 'Demre' and the nearest town to the West is 'Kaş'. The village where we live is quaint and pretty quiet. İn the summer months it can be busy with foreign and local holiday makers who come to visit the underwater city and the other unspoilt bays which are mainly accessed by boat. We have a harbour which consists of two jettys where foreigners and locals keep there boats. We are also located in the same area where the village called 'Simena' and or 'Kaleköy' is found, this village is on the penninsula and its a beautful walk but people tend to take a boat over.
