Damlica Ciftligi Catalca - Villafe

Here you can learn and practice organic farming and enjoy the beautiful landscape. After spending some time with us you will have a different perspective about the vegetables you eat. You will gain more respect for nature.

Volunteers will be treated as a member of our team, there is no hierarchy but some work to do. We are open to suggestions, and new information. We believe in sustainability. We have a boutique hotel in the same compound www.villafe.com. volunteers stay in staff rooms allocated to them. We expect our volunteers to work 5hrs a day, 08:00-10:30 tea break 11:00-13:30 , 5 days a week, friday and saturday are rest day.We prefer every body works together, indivudual holidays, breaks are making the work program hard to manage. If there is a need for individual holiday, or break we expect from that volunteer to complete minimum 25 hrs/week total time.Volunteers will be sharing the room with a another one. There is toilet and shower in every room. We provide ingridients for meals weekly, but not meat, choclate, coffe, tofu etc. We expect our volunteers cook their meals, taste our organic vegetables. There is a kitchen where team is cooking, warming their food, have their meal. Cleaning and tidyness of rooms, kitchen, shared locations is always essentail and we care a lot. The land is big there are lots of places to enjoy. We are close to Istanbul (60km), public transport is only 2 km away , which we can transport volunteers at requirement but volunteer should give us a notice before . With public transport it will take 2,5 hours to reach city center. Marmara sea shore is close, going public beach and swimming possible.

while I was here it was very enjoyable. everyone treats me well. Every time we eat we always gather with the staff and joke around like family. I miss this moment. yusuf, mama sa'adah, ahmeed, khan, tameer, mama Aisyah, chef. My volunteer friend Pablo who always listens to me talk. I'm very impressed. Thank you Mr Emin for the opportunity. nothing is missing

This is my first experience with WP . And all I can say is WONDERFUL! The place is so calm far from the noises , the room were I stayed was so clean and everything I needed was there . The food and all the essentials ingredients and materials were in our kitchen ( volunteer’s kitchen). The staff are so friendly I really enjoyed their company.The host Mr.Emin Ali is so respectful and friendly, he invited me to “DAMLICAFEST” that was here at Villafee I really had a great time.
Once again I would like to express my sincere thanks for your generous hospitality.

Importante saber que hay un hotel y que los huéspedes tienen prioridad, mientras estaba ahí no pudimos sentarnos en áreas comunes porque había un grupo grande quedándose en el momento, además que no podíamos hacer mucho ruido porque se quejaban mientras que ellos pusieron música fuerte por la noche.
Tampoco pude conocer a Emin, durante mi estancia sólo fue una vez pero no se presentó con los voluntarios, ni siquiera sabía quiénes estábamos quedándonos en el momento, el único que estuvo al pendiente de nosotros fue Ahmet pero aún así nunca fuimos su prioridad, la cocina no es la mejor.
