  • Description


    We are Ihsane and Necati. We live with our three young children (ages 9, 6 and 2). We grow Dragon Fruit in the greenhouse in our garden. We also have pomegranate trees, dogs, cats, goats and chickens. In the garden and greenhouse, we are engaged in weeding, pruning trees, cleaning the garden and house, and growing Pitaya seedlings.

    We need friends to volunteer. In particular, Pitaya and we need help with the care of new crops. A lot of help is needed to clean the weeds in the greenhouse. We have carpentry work because the farm is new. We want to make a ladder in the attic. We want to organize our garden and make a good settlement.

    We're looking for friends who can take care of our kids. They can be someone who can teach them a foreign language and artistic activities.

    Or if you are painting well, you can paint our house and greenhouse.

    We're not good enough to speak English. No problem for us. We hope it is no problem for you. Perhaps we can learn a new language through our guest.

    We have a big family and we are still excited to meet new people and spend some weeks together and create something new together.

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    The house and garden are very quiet because they are outside the village. Muğla region is very hot in the summer, we do business in the morning and evening. We're working without tiring ourselves

    There are many historical and touristic areas in the vicinity. Koycegiz Lake, Dalyan Canal and Kaunos Ancient City are all within 15-20 minutes.
    Attractions such as Marmaris, Göcek, Fethiye, Köyceğiz, KayaKöy, Gökova and Akyaka are within 40 minutes and 1 hour. You can get there by bus from Ortaca bus station.

    Paragliding, diving, horse safari, fishing, mud baths are close enough to go at any time.
