  • Description


    I am an interior architect who used to be traveller. My father is a plastic molder and my mother was a personal shopper, both are retired and live in a village in a big field. My mother is Lazuri, rooted from east black sea region. She used to live in a mountain village so she has a lot of ancient knowledge. My father is a genius mathematical person. His parents were immigrated from Bulgaria. He was born in Denizli in a village near by the ancient Hierapolis. We try to do natural farming or permaculture. Lots of fruits and vegetables grows in our garden and we also make wine and alchol drinks or other conservation products when it's the season. We are very open to meet new cultures and learn other experiences of life.

Like gardening (hoeing, prunning, harvesting, sowing, watering, piping), boiling molasses, making wine process, conservation of the harvest, or building some coop, oven etc. Moreover you can help on house works or you can cook your traditional dishes for us as we love trying different cultural menus.

  • Accommodation


    Workawayers can sleep either in the same house or there is a small, special wooden cabin in our garden which is called "serender". It is up to their preference to sleep in a bed or on a coach or maybe they can prefer to sleep in the garden on a hammock if they wish. We will eat together what we cook that day. It is more like communal style. everyone can get involved in every common thing.
