My name is Yaşar, I run a tea farm and a tea house in Çifteköprü village, Trabzon region. It's a very rural area and we try to live as naturally as possible, in a non consumerist way. I live with my father Cemal, he's 80. I've been a host in Couchsurfing for several years. The tea house serves traditional Black Sea tea.
Creating/ Cooking family meals
Help around the house
Turkish and Black Sea local culture, Turkish language, tea farming, trekking in beautiful nature (yayla).
I'm looking for a person that could cook and take care of the house since my father is very old and I have to take care of the farm and the tea house. "He/she should also give a hand in the tea house sometimes."
My house, old big house, the helper will have own room, water coming from the mountain, hot shower available. Kitchen, living room, 5 rooms, no room problem. I will provide the food and cover other house expenses.
Visiting the region, green nature. You can easily travel around by hitchhicking or minibus. I have a car too. Really good for trekking. Besides very close Georgia and Caucasus.
