what a great experience with Asli and her husband. They will treat you like part of their family. Asli is a very hard working and admirable woman, you will learn a lot with her and I'm sure that she will use any skill you have. Her place is very comfortable and the food she cooks delicious. I'm sure you will enjoy your time with them.

Aslı and Haluk were wonderful hosts. Because of the Virus we couldn’t do so much, so my tasks were to help Aslı with cleaning tasks in the day. It’s located next to a small village and perfect for people who loves the nature, animals & food! We had nice conversations about politics and different cultures in the world! It was an amazing experience I will definitely come back one day! 😊

Stay with Asli and her family was a great experience! I really enjoyed eating and learning a lot about Turkish culture and food.
About the activities, everyday was different some days I was helping fixing a door o in art project, other days I was washing dishes, picking grapes in the vineyard harvest 2019 or as waiter, gardener or cleaner...
Thank you for the experience!

Overall it was a nice experience. I had all meals included and a bedroom for myself. Asli was a kind and polite host who I had interesting conversation about politics :)
She even let my boyfriend staying for 2 days with us, he had only to paint her balcony in exchange.
The job is easy, although the working hours weren't predetermined. She wants someone to stay available for the whole day, so that you can't plan your day. She had a helper at the time, so I ended up having plenty of free time. I took care of the dog, did some house work and waitressing. She was very flexible with off days.

Asli and Haluk were really lovely and welcoming. My stay was very enjoyable, the work was easy and the cooking workshops were fun too! I even learnt quite a bit about food history and Turkish traditions on top of the recipes and cooking methods as both Asli and Haluk are very knowledgeable in this area.
I had plenty of time to relax.
The view from the house is breathtakig. 😍
