Sitter needed for small farm in Turkey

  • This house is in: Turkey, Milas
  • Dates: variable

About this assignment

We are a Turkish farmily looking for help on our small vegetable farm near Bodrum.  We will start building a new property in September 2010 and are looking for a responsible single lady to stay with us on our farm to take care of the animals and keep an eye on our current house during periods when we are away. 
Although we will continue to live with you on the farm most of the time we would like somebody to be around when we have to be away supervising the building work. 
We will provide you with your own separate accommodation next door to our house.
We would like you to stay several months during autumn/winter 2010.

What responsibilities are required of the house sitter

We need somebody to feed our animals (2 dogs/2 cats and some chickens) twice a day and also to stay on the property at times when we are away. 

What are the good features of the property and location

We live in the beautiful South Aegean region of Turkey in a rural area.  Transport is excellent as we are only 5km from Bodrum airport, local dolmuses run frequently and long distance buses run from the nearest town, Milas, which is 10km from the house.  There is plenty to explore in the local area  - we are 1 hour from Bodrum and 2.5 hours from Izmir.  There are lots of local bazaars and historical sites to visit around the house.
As we do not need you to stay on the property continuously you could also use it as a base to visit areas further afield. 
You can also enjoy relaxing here and use the pool.

What does the house sitter need to consider before applying for this assignment

We would prefer a single lady to help look after the house, somebody who enjoys and is interested in rural life. 
We will be living on the property with you most of the time so we can discuss whether you prefer to spend time with us or be more independent.
