  • Description


    We are a family of 6 children, living in the mountains. We have seperate accommodation in the town below. It is paradise here but lots to do. We are in Turkey. Looking for somebody who can help me . Great opportunity to learn Turkish or English. We can arrange when you want to work together. I am flexible I want you to enjoy this as much as me.

    My country house really needs a couple who can work together. They would have plenty of things to do around the garden and house that needs a lot of work and mending and also work alongside the partner or help me with many needed things to do. The location and view is stunning and is a rewarding place to be.

    I am now adding that since Corona I would like to be more at home and do more homesteading. I would like to build up a homestead and have started by clearing the land and burning. I would like to expand on edible roses (we made jam), olives ( we have lots), chickens, a cow, sugar cane, bees etc. I have been homeschooling the 6 children and would like to continue this homestead homeschool program. One problems we I can't get the animals until I can find someone who wants to live here as we go away lots too.

    I am looking for couples or a woman.

    Come and have a look. We have 2 houses we use every day. See where you like and what room you would like. I am flexible. The house in the town would mean you can be on your own a bit where as the country house has a small room at the end of the hallway.
