Hello I am living on the edge of Yesil Uzumlu (Green Grape) village in Fethiye with my husband and three quite large ex street dogs. We are from the UK although my husband was originally from Iran. We have only been living in our villa since April, before that we lived in Fethiye center.
We moved to this village as Fethiye center although a fantastic place to live was not suitable for our dogs. We are adjusting to living outside the town.
DIY and building projects
Creating/ Cooking family meals
Help around the house
There are many places of historic interest in the Fethiye area for you to explore from amphitheatre to old bath houses, equally the area is a must for sea and nature lovers. The Old Houses in the village here are fascinating, a 30 minute drive to Fethiye centre will enable you to see remains of the Old Castle, reputedly built by the Knights of Rhodes, The Tombs, The Harbour, The famous Tuesday market and the Fish Market where you can choose your fish from the fishmonger then have it cooked for you while listening to live music.
You will be able to learn English from me and pick up Turkish from our neighbours, if you wish to learn about the Persian influences on Turkey my husband has good knowledge on this subject. The whole area is stepped in history, if you are energetic you can walk to the Cadinada ruins from here.
This project could involve children. For more information see our guidelines and tips here.
We welcome help with home cleaning everyday, the ability to cook a basic meal would be useful but not essential, help with the garden, t redecorating and DIY. We also need help in cleaning and maintaining our house in Fethiye center. Please be aware that we have three ex fairly large street dogs, if you are uncomfortable around street dogs this is not the placement for you.
A double attic room with balcony and bathroom on the same floor.
We provide breakfast, lunch and evening meal, if you are going out hiking or sightseeing you may take a packed lunch with you.
We are about a 30 minute walk from the village where there are a few shops, bars and restaurants including a wine bar. My husband is willing to give you a lift into Fethiye once or twice a week. We can be flexible with the work enabling you to maximize your time for sightseeing, going to the beach etc. The bus is limited but does run into Fethiye via the bus station, the main shopping centre and the market.
We only want to accommodate non smokers, you must be comfortable around dogs that have experienced abuse. Please do not apply if you have no experience of living with dogs, the dogs are quite large Labrador size and are all former street dogs. Our dogs live inside the house although they are not allowed to come up to the guest attic room.
