  • Description


    Atilla's getaway is a backpackers resort and luxury accommodation together in a town called Selcuk, 80 km in the south of Izmir and runs by Australian Turkish family for 15 years. We‘re situated in the mountains of Ephesus which is the second largest ancient city of the world and we're just below the mountain of the Virgin Mary. We've got 20 rooms, swimming pool, bar and volleyball court. We are open all year around. We believe that people can learn much more about our customs and culture while they are volunteering at our place so we are always happy to be their host.

  • Help


    This is a half board type accommodation (Breakfast and Dinner) and we serve homemade food so we need volunteers who will pick vegetables from the backyard garden, also we need help with the internet (word,exel, net work) and with social media / booking sites / socializing with our guests.

    Every 2 weeks in the summer season we have tour buses that stop at our place for 2 nights, usually a group of 20-30.

    We would like our volunteers to be social with the guests helping to create a nice atmosphere.

    Please tell us a bit about yourself and what you can contribue, we are happy to take volunteers who can add something to our place.
