  • Description

    Description

    Our farm is located on a secluded beach of Cunda island in the Aegean sea. We are Recep (62) who knows every single part of the island and Ceyda (32) who is trying to understand the dynamics of current hospitality notion. We organized the beach shelter as a restaurant including the general farm, however are generally relying on our garden, goats and chickens, sea and the land. AND there are always things to do here.

    If you think you agree with taking parts in these descriptions of help below to make the life easy and fun together here, write us to come over.

    BY OCTOBER;

    WE WOULD LIKE TO HOST SOMEONE WHO WILL BE WILLING TO EXPERIENCE 'THE LIVING AT THE EDGE' STYLE OF THIS VILLAGE. WE WOULD LIKE TO SPEND MORE TIME OUTSIDE THE VILLAGE AFTER A BUSY SEASON. IF SOMEONE IS WILLING TO BE OKEY WITH BEING VISITED DAILY OR TWICE A WEEK OR SMT, WE WOULD BE HAPPY TO SHARE OUR PLACE AND MAKE THEM MEET OUR NEIGHBORS AND FRIENDS OVER HERE TO LET THEM INVOLVE IN THE ISLAND LIFE WITH US. THIS WOULD BE NICE WITH A LONG TERM STAY. IF YOU THINK SHORT, BUT STILL INTERESTED, YOU CAN STILL CONTACT US. THANK YOU.

    P.S: BY OCTOBER, THERE IS NOT MUCH TO WORK WITH APART FROM CARING FOR THE LIFE WITH SOME CHICKENS, CATS AND DOGS UNLESS YOU DO SOME ADDITIONS VOLUNTARILY.
