1. What was the most memorable or exciting part of your holiday?


The whole atmosphere of the accommodation is amazing. You are up on a high plateau, away from the noise and bustle, in a wonderful microcosm. Anthea and Bob are extremely helpful - very knowledgeable about the area and they go out of their way to make your stay enjoyable. There are lots of amenities there on the site, but also wonderful possibilities all around, such as walking sections of the Lycian Way, which are right on the doorstep.

2. What tips would you give other travellers booking this holiday?


Make sure you stay for a while to enjoy all of the local sites. For walking, avoid the mid-summer (much too hot..though we managed quite a lot by dint of getting up early!)

3. Did you feel that your holiday benefited local people, and minimized impacts on the environment?


Yes. All of the staff are local and the whole complex is run in a very low-key way, using local materials.

1. What was the most memorable or exciting part of your holiday?


The farm is one of the most peaceful, beautiful and relaxing places we have ever been to. Anthea and Bob are very friendly, informative and helpful hosts.

2. What tips would you give other travellers booking this holiday?


The quietness of the farm is because it is very remote so any touring requires a longish drive on poor roads. No easy access to beaches but there is a very pleasant pool on the farm and a bar on the farm and a restaurant which cooks the local produce into delicious dishes. Take supplies with you but the shop on the farm has a good range of vegetables and some meat and other essentials. Try and arrive before dark if you are driving yourself.

3. Did you feel that your holiday benefited local people, and minimized impacts on the environment?


The farm has a very low impact on the environment, e.g all vegetable waste goes to the rabbits or other animals, water is from well or spring and waste water goes on the gardens. All produce from the farm is organic and is the basis of the restaurant menu.

4. Finally, how would you rate your holiday overall?


Very highly we were refreshed and invigorated by our stay.

1. What was the most memorable or exciting part of your holiday?


The drive up to the cottages and the atmosphere of the place, which were both fabulous.

2. What tips would you give other travellers booking this holiday?


It's high up - pack warm things in colder months.

3. Did you feel that your holiday benefited local people, and minimized impacts on the environment?


Yes, the food provided was all local and mainly organic.

4. Finally, how would you rate your holiday overall?


Absolutely lovely, would definitely go again. The owners are wonderful hosts, the cottages and surrounds are gorgeous, and it is an extremely attractive and hospitable part of the world.

1. What was the most memorable or exciting part of your holiday?


Hard to say, there were so many – probably the drive up (and down) to the accommodation - every time the landscape took our breath away. For the children the many wild tortoises and the animals on the farm, trips to the beach, and the friends they made.

2. What tips would you give other travellers booking this holiday?


It’s a great place for young kids (pre teens), very quiet and relaxed, it is possible to get to beaches and tourist areas but it does involve at least 45 minutes (Patara) to more than an hour (anywhere else) of driving some of it on rough roads – which we enjoyed but some may not. It’s a great place to walk from - although some of the best walks (down to the sea) are too much for young children the immediate surrounding area is beautiful.

3. Did you feel that your holiday benefited local people, and minimized impacts on the environment?


There are local people working at the accommodation and locally hand made goods are for sale; the villagers we met were very friendly; the impact on the environment seemed minimal.

1. What was the most memorable or exciting part of your holiday?


The most memorable part of our holiday was definitely our first drive up the mountain to the accommodation where we were staying. We had flown over night from Gatwick and after having no sleep picked up our rental car from Dalaman Airport ready to drive on the opposite side of the Turkish roads! With some sketchy directions from our car rental company representative we made it to the bottom of a mountain with literally- no road! We had to scale the mountain in our Hyundai- 1100 metres up with a sheer drop into the Med if we made any mistakes. I think we were a bit delirious by the time we arrived so it was all good fun [except for when we got to the top and thought "It can't be up here" and drove back down.... It was up there so we had to drive back up again!] The best part about it was the view as the sun rose over the mountain. I have never seen such outstanding views in my life and the next day we had to do the drive back down stopping hundreds of times on the way to take photos - amazing.

2. What tips would you give other travellers booking this holiday?


Be prepared to be in the middle of nowhere- if you do that and take Turkey for what it is - you can't go wrong. Turkey is incredible - in terms of landscapes and culture, the beaches are magnificent and the people are more than friendly. It sounds like a cliché but it is all true.

3. Did you feel that your holiday benefited local people, and minimized impacts on the environment?


Definitely. We bought local produce from the local farmers market - everything was organic and the money went straight back into the farmers hands. We bought gifts for our family handmade by the local women from Goat hair and we tried to be as culturally sensitive as is possible. The accommodation uses totally organic products and tries not to produce any rubbish - anything that can be burnt is - and it heats the water for your accommodation at the same time!

1. What was the most memorable or exciting part of your holiday?


Being on top of the world! Looking out over hill tops, cliff faces and mountain valleys down to the sea.

2. What tips would you give other travellers booking this holiday?


It's more like going to a family home than a 'resort', expect friendly people, excellent food and invaluable tips on things to do including trips to the beach with the grandchildren.

3. Did you feel that your holiday benefited local people, and minimized impacts on the environment?


Absolutely. The owners have lived and worked in Turkey for years and are integral to the life in the village.

We had a lovely time, thank you very much! The accommodation was simple but clean, comfortable and in a beautiful location. The food was local and of a very good quality. Our hosts Bob and Anthea were great – very helpful, knowledgeable and accommodating. They have been successfully introducing a breed of goat to the local area that doesn’t erode the soil, which is great, as well as employing local people and using local goods in an area that really has limited other means of making money. All food was local and organic where possible, and they take great care to encourage guests to look after the environment.

Responsible travel: Turkey self catering accommodation

The cottages are located in an area 'off the beaten track' and provide a means for the local community to obtain self sufficiency. The cottages and communal buildings blend in with the landscape, using local stone and timber.

The complex is run in a socially and environmentally sustainable manner employing only local people and operating in tandem with the physical environment. Bread is made daily, organically grown food is served to the guests, waste food is fed to the animals and their manure is used on the fields. Bottles and cans are recycled, plastics and metal are collected by the scrap merchant. All non-plastic burnables are used to produce hot water, with solar panels providing the electricity for outside lighting. On arrival all guests are informed of the necessary steps they can take to ensure they have a minimal negative impact on the surrounding environment.
