İzmir is a nice city with seashore and historical places. İt’s the third biggest city in Turkey. We live in city center. Our house is only 2 minutes to subway stop and 10 minutes to seaside by walking. At the seaside you can rent and ride bike.. There are many bars, clubs, site-seeing, resaurants, shopping, bazaars, etc in İzmir. The weather is usually sunny. Urla/Seferihisar are 30 minutes or çeşme/Alaçatı is 1 hour or Kuşadası 1,5 hour far to us. Also Efes and Şirince is so close to İzmir. If you like history and villiages I guess you will have fun.

I’m so grateful about this experience, about their trust in me and the amazing and beautiful time we spent together :) the kids are great, they are smart and full of fun and creativity, energetic and sweet! They were always willing to learn :) Also I was, and I learned a lot from them. The family made me feel welcomed from the first day. Ayse was a friend to me, and the main door for understanding the culture (and the delicious food).They give you a lot of free time, good for seeing the city. Izmir is clean, organized and friendly. It was a great experience. They touched my heart. ❤️
