  • Description


    We are Ihsane and Necati. We are a family of five.
    We have a village house in a small garden, a detached house.

    There isn't much to do in the garden during the winter months. But we want to cut wood and make trees to be pruned and also a camellia.
    Those who understand carpentry work or just help with household chores; You can support us in cleaning the house, cooking and teaching our children English or German.
    Work is light. You will always have time for yourself. We are not very good at speaking English, but we have had guests from many different countries in our house before and we did not have any problems.
    Our house is in the village center. You can go to Dalyan by bicycle. Or you can go by the buses that pass every hour from the village. There are many places to visit and enjoy.

    We had a farmhouse before. We received help in greenhouse works by hosting volunteers there.
    And now, we cannot plant here during the winter months because we do not have a greenhouse area.
    We will start planting seedlings in the spring. Like March - April.
    During this period, things will get busy in the garden.

    A single bed with your own room.
    There are shared bathroom and WC areas.
    If you're good with kids and open to teaching painting or crafts, this is exactly what we're looking for.
    And maybe you want to give software lessons :)

    All it takes is 5 hours a day for us.
    Our children's ages are 12, 10 and 6.
    All weekdays are at school. Arrival times from school are 15.00 and 17.30. Only after these hours on weekdays is suitable for educational activities with them.

    The weekend is your own time. The food issue is in the joint business plan.
