  • Description

    Description

    We, Tayip (Turkish), Deborah (British) live on a large piece of land in the village of Kermeç, 700 metres above sea level with an amazing sea view.
    We are a 35 minute drive from the town of Göcek famous for its sailing. We have a small holding run on holistic, permaculture and traditional methods. We have peacocks, turkeys, chickens,
    assorted cats and dogs.
    Tayip has planted the land with thousands of olive, almonds, walnuts, figs and many other trees. Deborah is using the produce to make conserves, jams and fresh delicious food.
    There is guest accomadation for volunteers and future educational projects and holidays and a recently finished a second wooden house. We had so much help from workaway volunteers on this project and couldn't have done it without them.
    This year we will continue to do some more building and so are particularly interested in people with house building skills or experience. we also need help with looking after all the animals and working on the land.
    Is anyone interested in staying for a longer period of time? Anything from one to six months would be great although we still welcome people who can only commit to a shorter stay.

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    We have found that guests really love to be in nature leading a simple and hearty life, and learning about local culture as well as getting to know our neighbours. People are generally happy to have limited wifi as it makes them more present and gives an opportunity to do more being and reading.

    Help

    We would love your help to manage the land, look after the animals, landscaping the garden, growing veggies and building new accomadation. We hope to have great fun and learn and teach from each other. We are easy going and interested in people of all walks at life and from all over the world. At the moment we are particularly interested in people with house building skills and experience.
    We are also looking for house sitters for this summer and also people who would like to make a longer term commitment of about a year. We are still interested in people who want to stay for a minimum of 2 weeks.

  • What else ...

    What else ...

    We are near to the coast so plenty of beaches nearby as well as sailing and boating opportunities. The nearest large town is Fethiye and there are many ancient ruins in the wider vicinity. Our village is very small with only a few other houses and local people scattered around ideal to see a traditional way of life but close enough to access the modern world. We have a flat in Göcek that can be used on days off.
