    Description

    I am English woman living alone with my animals but have a number of good friends nearby in the village. I have a shop and a cafe in Kalkan and am also very involved with a local street animal charity .

    If you like nature and the outdoors plus peace and quiet this maybe the perfect spot for you. My house is an old stone village house that I am rennovating. It is comfortable, but there are still quite a few jobs to do around the house and garden.It is situated on the side of the Kaputaş valley in a typical rural Turkish village called Sarıbelen. Many walkers pass through Sarıbelen while hiking the Lycian Way. It has spectacular views and many beautiful places to walk.
    I would prefer couples or women ideally

    Help

    I have a large garden and a fairly large, old house. I also have 6 cats and 6 dogs and often foster for a local animal charity. I am looking for people that can help in the garden and the house and be company for my animals.

    Dog walking and enjoying caring for animals are essential. The area I live in is very beautiful and perfect for those that enjoy walking. I work very long hours throughout the summer months and don't like to leave my animals alone for too long. While my house is very comfortable there are still many jobs that need to be done around the house and garden ie painting, sanding, building and rennovating - so if you enjoy working with your hands you would never be bored.

    Accommodation

    I have a large 3 bedroom house. I can provide a comfortable double room and people would have access to kitchen, bathroom, living room etc If you have allergies to dog and cat hair though this will not be the place for you. I try to keep the place tidy but with little time and so many animals it is an uphill struggle.

  • What else ...

    What else ...

    The area I live in is very beautiful. Kalkan is the nearest town which is about 14km away. It is a picturesque tourist resort. The Lycian way passes very close to my house and is perfect for those who enjoy hiking.

    The area is full of historical sights such as Patara, Xanthos, Pınara etc. Fethiye is about 90km away and Kaş is about 30km away. For anyone who enjoys the outdoors this is a perfect spot.

    I have a business in Kalkan which takes up a lot of my time during the summer, I can drop people in Kalkan if they want to come for to do some shopping or go to the beach. There is a bus service that runs near my house but not too frequently.
