  • Help


    As a voulunteer you can help my mother in the kitchen when it is busy, or you can help with the horses. But there is a lot of time to go to the village, to visit other parts of Cappadocia, go for walks or horsebackriding in the valley.
    You are a guest of the house and eat together with my family.
    İt is a good oppurtunity to learn some turkish and maybe teach some english to my family.

    İn summertime you can also help with our organic garden.

    To get to my ranch you can take the bus to Göreme (3km from the ranch) or Ürgüp (5km) and İ can pick you up.

    There are a lot of things to see in Cappadocia, and in your sparetime you can go anywhere you want and we can also go some places together. İ can Show you the village and the valley.
    We live close to Göreme open air museum, the panorama view point. There are good hiking routes and of course you can go on a balloon tour.
