  • Description

    Description

    We are a family of four. Nele (Belgian), Tarık (Turkish), Eren (7 years) and Sena (5 years old). We have a house with a garden, a vegetable garden in front of the house, an olive garden next to the house, 5 chicken, a cat and a bigger olive garden in a village close by.

    İn March, we could use some help with the children, the household and weeding the garden. İn April we are looking for a house sitter. İn November-December we need a lot of help with the harvest and processing olives. The rest of the year we could use some help with feeding the animals, collecting eggs, watering the vegetables, weeding the garden and playing with the children.

    We live in Milas. Milas is an small city with a lot of historical sites close by 30 minutes from Ören, a very pitoresk coastal place with a calm sea and a pebble beach. One hour drive from Bodrum, a famous coastal place with a busy night life.

    Not just a Turkish exchange but also an exchange with Belgium is awaiting you. We like travelers being a part of the family, having dinner together, spending time together. You could learn a lot about olive trees and harvesting olives and making olive oil. But also about gardening, making cheese and children.
