    Description

    Hello and greetings from Fethiye.

    I moved into my present home, in a quiet farming area, expecting to be living on a building site. However the landlord has delayed finishing the 2nd floor. So, if I'm staying on the ground floor, I need help making it more of a permanent home. As an example, my oven is currently in the shed in the garden.
    I have been waiting for the cooler, damper weather to do some serious work in the garden. Nothing complicated but I'd appreciate the help. Especially as I foster dogs who keep me busy. They can be survivors of road accidents or cruelty or may have been dumped. I take care of them them while they heal and try to find them their Forever Home.
    In return for your help, the food is home-cooked, delicious and plentiful.
    Accommodation is in private room (with shower and WC along the hall).

    A couple will be welcome, one of you needs reasonably good spoken English.
    Not all tasks need 2 pairs of hands. Some need 3 pairs and, then, I will work alongside you.

    Turkish volunteers very welcome as I need help learning your language! Please state your specific skills.
    If you are not comfortable with dogs, please do not apply.
    I am a non-smoker. There is no smoking in the house.
    I have been delayed recently by volunteers asking to come and then going silent. I can see when you have read my reply. Please be courteous.

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    I am English and retired from teaching. I can provide more formal language lessons in addition to general conversation practice.
    This is a beautiful part of Turkey. Your help commitments can be arranged around trips to explore other regions of the country.
    Our nearest town is Fethiye but popular places nearby include: Kayakoy, Gemiler Island and Çaliş Plaji. In 'normal' times, from the otogar in Fethiye it is possible to catch buses to destinations all over Turkey. It is even possible to take a ferry to Greece.

    The house is situated in a farming area so there is always dust to clean up, floors to mop, windows to polish.
    A flexible approach is necessary.

    Meals will be eaten together.
    I'm happy to offer meat-free dishes but I am omnivorous. If you have any specific requests please make them before arrival.
    We live as a family with give and take. But, I'm of an older generation and would prefer you to leave your phone behind at meal times... and other similar courtesies while you are a guest in my home.

    These days, with the internet, you can research the areas which are of most interest to you personally. Just start with the place names I have listed.
    But, nature worshipper, water enthusiast, thrill seeker, or history buff... all are well catered for here.

    Can host digital nomads

    I have hosted digital nomads. I'm seriously reconsidering this. If you want to 'work from home', please remember that this is MY home. If you decide to stay with me, we are entering into an agreement. Part of that needs to be that you provide me with a timetable of your internet requirements and your availability to me. And, when you will be getting out and enjoying the area.
