    We are looking for someone who can live with us for 2 weeks to 2 months We are flexible.

    We hosted a volunteer from USA for 2 and half months, We had a nice holiday alltogether. We are ready to host any other volunteers beginning from October.

    We wish to host someone who will feel like a family member. We prefer sportive, a talkative outgoing person to laugh and chat with at the dinner table. Maybe she would love to have a creative soul to bring some artistic inspiration. Or someone who likes cooking we can learn her culture or she can learn Turkish cuisine.

    We have a cleanning lady but she can help basic, daily house works.
