Hello,I am German retired physician and chose Turkey and this part of the Mediterrean sea as my home in 1992.
I roamed the world by sailing boat and RV and used my home as a base . Since 2004 I live here permanantly and created a little private farm with horses ,chicken and pets.
I am married to a Turkish horse riding instructor.
We live in a rural area 20km from Marmaris on the way to Data in a Village called Hisarönü on the end of the sama called Gulf of Hisarönü.
Our little ranch is a private riding stable on a 2500sqm plot
We still host one trecking horse,her 17 month old foal and since one month a 6 week old rescued foal which is nursed by my mare.
There are 2 cats,one dog and some chicken around.
We need help for gardening and basic maintenance (painting,varnishing etc) ,household and some cooking skills are welcome as well. Preferable October/November /December or March/April /May
2 weeks Minimum but long term volunteers are welcome as well and will give the possibile to hop off for some days.
Our area is a great place for outdoor activities, historical sight seeing and watersport - our Place is only 1,5km from the Sea,
public minibuses are available every hour and give the possibile to go the bustling SUMMER Resort City Marmaris (12 miles) or exploring one of the two half peninsulas framing the Gulf of Hisarönü and hosting small fisher villages and smaller touristic resorts as Datca/Selemiye/Bozburun.
After 22 years I still travel around here and find untouched bays,undugged historical sights.
