We had a DREAM: Living indoors, luxurious but cozy and warm in the log houses. Imagine being close to beach and feeling the sunshine of the Mediterranean.
We had a MISSION: to live in a healthy, yoga, physical, emotional, intellectual, mental and spiritual levels to adapt. To enjoy high quality food with the products we cultivate in our own organic garden.
We had an ENTHUSIASM: to walk on ancient Lycia roads, to pedal in Olympos nature park and mountains, and to throw a boat trip on our tiredness. Enjoying the adventures of nature with your passion to be active.
We had a GOAL: to be happy, to listen to music sitting around the fire at night, to watch fire brushes blend into the stars.
Our dream has come true: We have brought together the best of everything that has been placed in a unique position to reach the summit in quality. Now we invite you to share this unique experience with you.
