  • Description


    We are a couple who 14 years ago gave up our careers and started our craft projects in Datça, Muğla. Me 'Müberra', my husband Yaşar, and our daughter Doğa have a sweet hostel in Datça/Ovabükü in Turkey now. I am a silver jewelry designer and my husband is a silkworm grower.

    In these days, we are running a small and beautiful guesthouse for our art and craft workshops for the future. Our hostel is 400m away from the coast of Meditarean See.

    Yaşar and I like to work in different parts of the hostel to get experience with jobs. Yaşar generally organizes the rooms and swimming pool when I work kitchen. We have a staff, Funda is our right hand in the kitchen. She has organized all the elaborate works before dinner. When we are very busy in the middle of summer if we need our friends to help us with the hostel room's part. We would be very happy for a workawayer who can help with general maintenance in the hostel and garden. For this summer, we need somebody who can help us with the hostel's rooms cleaning between July and August.
    On the other hand, if we get the chance, we would be very happy to show our culture and teach our language to our workawayer guests.
    We are looking forward to new visitors.
