Turkey needs help in our village in Muğla, Ortaca- Dalyan.
Location: Mugla, Turkey
We are Ihsane and Necat. We have been living in a small village in Muğla - Ortaca Dalyan. We live with our three young children (ages 9, 6 and 2).
We grow Pitaya in our farm. In ou 5-acre garden, greenhouse, pomegranate trees, dogs and chickens. We are busy with weeding in the garden and greenhouse, pruning the trees, cleaning the garden and the house, and growing the Pitaya seedlings.
We're looking for friends who can take care of our kids. They can be someone who can teach them a foreign language and artistic activities.
Or if you are painting well, you can paint our house and greenhouse.
We're not good enough to speak English. No problem for us. We hope it is no problem for you. Perhaps we can learn a new language through our guest.
We have 1 room for our guest. We'il live together in the same house. There will be a communal kitchen and a common living space. Guest room for 1 person. But for the second person, we can put a bed on the floor (if you wish).
Families with children can arrange a different room.
You can also set up a tent in our garden. We have small tents for 2 and 4 people. You can also have your own tents.
Me and my wife are cooking. But we would like to try your meals.
We don't smoke and drink inside the house.
We need friends to volunteer. In particular, Pitaya and we need help with the care of new crops. A lot of help is needed to clean the weeds in the greenhouse. We have carpentry work because the farm is new. We want to make a ladder in the attic. We want to organize our garden and make a good settlement.
The house and garden are very quiet because they are outside the village. Muğla region is very hot in the summers, so we are usually only doing business in the mornings and evenings. So, We're working without tiring ourselves. We work 5 hours a day, 5 days a week. 2 or 3 hours in the morning and 2 or 3 hours in the evening. Working in the morning starts between 07:00 or 08:00.
There are many historical and touristic areas in the vicinity. Koycegiz Lake, Dalyan Canal and Kaunos Ancient City are all within 15-20 minutes.
Attractions such as Marmaris, Göcek, Fethiye, Köyceğiz, KayaKöy, Gökova and Akyaka are within 40 minutes and 1 hour. You can get there by bus from Ortaca bus station.
Diving, horse safari, fishing, mud baths are close enough to go at any time.
With its beaches, bays and ancient places, it is 5-10 minutes away from Ortaca-Dalyan which is very popular especially between May and September. Iztuzu beach, one of the best beaches in Europe, the royal tombs carved into the rocks of architecture in the world, one of the oldest settlements in Anatolia, Kaunos Ancient City, Kargicak Bay, Asi Bay, Ekincik Bay is one of the main places known in the region.
Muğla - Ortaca bus stop is 15 minutes away from the village we live in. 25 minutes to the airport. It is possible to reach Dalyan by bike and it is very enjoyable. There are buses to Dalyan and Ortaca from the village center. We have 1 bike for the trips.
If you are interested in this region, I hope we are in the right place for you.
