  • Description


    We are a small family of three, mom , dad and our daughter Kayra (14). We spend our summer holidays at our lovely village house in Chania, Crete and live in İstanbul through the rest of the year.
    We would like to welcome a nature lover, preferably a native English speaker who would enjoy to spend time with our daughter Kayra who is a big fan of Harry Potter . We are looking for a girl friend to spend time together with her at the beach, swim, have fun activities together, read books and help her improve her English speaking skills.
    We want to learn more about the rich Cretan history and culture as well, so we'll take excursions, village tours , travel around for natural and historical sites on the island together. Other times we'll go for swimming at beautiful beaches around, take care of our very small garden, cook healthy meals, and enjoy days with neighbors , family, friends .
