We are a big family running a family busines of a small hotel&food in the beautiful village, Zeytinada, in Antalya along the Mediterranean coast. Our hotel is expected to be busy in the summer, but for other seasons we hardly work with it. I am a language teacher in the town of Gazipaşa and I live there. My parents and my brother live in the village and one storey if the hotel is the house of my parents. My brother has a small farm with cows, hens and hoats. He handles the works in the farm and orchards, but we also help them when needed. We don't employ people, but in the highs season sfron time to time my mom hires some ladies from the village.
We have a quite big land with a lot of olive trees, avocados, pomegranates, almonds and various tropical fruits. We grow our vegetables and fruits with zero chemical intervention, so we need expertise and help in bio farming at any period of year.
We are aiming to promote clear food and healthy lifestyle for everybody, and trying to prove that it can be sustainable.
We love to hear people's ideas and experiences from all over the world about sustainable agriculture and tourism. Our overall project aims to achieve this goal. We hope our volunteers learn a lot from us too.
Me and my wife can speak Turkish, English, Hungarian, Spanish, German and Russian, but we don't live in the village a the time. When we are not around we can help you online, if you need any help in communication, but as always say: language is a tool to communicate, not a barrier.
So it would be nice to use Google translate or something similar to communicate with my old parents and by brother's family.
As I said, we are a big family, and we do, produce, consume everything together. We would be more than happy, if you feel yourself part of this big family during and after your stay in Zeytinada.

- LATE SPRING, SUMMER AND EARLY AUTUMN
For these hot seasons your accomodation will be on the terrace under the roof where we wash and dry our linens and cloths. İt's a some 120 square metres of terrace with a storage where you can keep your belongings. There are one bunk bed and a single bed in two open air "rooms" that are separated by curtains. This area is the place where the volunteers can use all day, socialise and take rest. You will have mosquito nets around your beds. The toilets and showers are not at the same place, unfortunately, you need to use the shared ones 2 floors down.
-LATE AUTUMN, WINTER AND EARLY SPRING
for these cooler/colder seasons you'll have one of the hotel rooms with shared bathroom and air-condition. You are expected to keep the bathrooms very clean after every use, as they could be used by some customers too.
You are not expected to work with time-table at all. You can make your own, and plan your days, hours and day-offs according to your needs. The most important thing for us that you feel yourself part of this family and respect what we are doing.
When you don't help you can visit the beautiful surrounding cities of Gazipaşa Alanya and Anamur. You can trek in the mountains covered with pine trees. We love to look for mushrooms in late autumn and winter in those forests.
You can visit Cristal clear beaches, rocky or sandy. True, mostly it's difficult to get there, but this is the reason why they are so untouched.
