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.

Volunteering at Damlica Ciftligi Farm offers an average experience, despite a few shortcomings. Firstly, its remote location poses a challenge, devoid of nearby amenities like shops or cafes, leaving volunteers with limited options for leisure. Accommodation, while acceptable, doesn't match the advertised hotel-like rooms, and the state of bathrooms is subpar. Additionally, the food supply is inadequate, often failing to fulfill requested items, leading volunteers to cook for themselves with limited provisions, typically consisting of rice and vegetables.

The farm and hotel staff are very friendly and sociable. The establishment is very nice and the work is not too complicated. In addition, there are many cats and dogs that make you company anywhere. The farm workers, Tamer and Rustam are very kind and patient with inexperienced people. Ahmet the manager of the hotel is also very friendly, he is responsible for accommodation and food.
Note for future travelers: there is no market or any kind of shop near the farm. Ask and agree with staff since the first day about meals and the list of ingredients, as they sometimes take time to be delivered.

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.
