  • Description


    Hello and greetings from Fethiye
    I don't know how the current lock down is affecting you but it has caused chaos with my house move.
    I currently have 2 homes and can't, legally, move between the two!
    This is making it very difficult to simply clean and organise. Once everything is clean and organised I need to make the garden of the new house secure for Amber (my labradoodle).
    Then, the fun can begin!
    The timing is a bit late for getting summer fruit and vegetables into the ground, but it's still possible if we get on with it. The grape vines are growing strongly and will need tying in. My fabulous new neighbours have been keeping on top of the watering but I'm itching to get started. Fancy helping?

    In return, 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.

    Turkish volunteers very welcome as I need help learning your language! Please state your specific skills.

    Amber is an 9-year old labradoodle. She came to Turkey with me. She lives in the house and has access everywhere except the guests' bedroom. If you are not comfortable with dogs, please do not apply.
    I am a non-smoker. There is no smoking in the house.

    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 work 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. 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.

  • Help


    The house is situated in a farming area so there is always dust to clean up.
    I want to develop a vegetable garden in the land around my new home.
