Cirali beach self catering wooden chalets, Turkey


Responsible tourism

As the pioneers of responsible tourism, we screen every trip so you can travel knowing your holiday will help support conservation and local people.

The chalets are built from sustainable wood, in some cases from recycled wood collected from discarded village barns all around Antalya. They are designed to work harmoniously with the landscape, single storey, discreet and aesthetically in keeping with the local traditions.

The swimming pool uses a salt water filtration system, eliminating the need for chlorine and acids.

All hot water is generated from solar panels, no electricity or gas is used whatsoever.

All the garden waste is composted, with over 12000 square meters of grounds, this amounts to a considerable amount of pruning and grass mowing each year, we now have a system in place to compost and reuse this green waste as natural fertiliser.

The chalets are set within a fully working orange grove which operates organically; no insecticides or chemicals are used on the grounds, natural sources of fertilisation and pest control are employed instead.

Guests are advised to minimise the use of strong chemicals. As much as possible, the chalets are cleaned with products sourced for their low impact properties.

Laundry is on request and guests are advised to minimise the use of strong chemicals, sheets are towels are washed as needed, not daily.

The Impacts of this Trip

All the chalets have been constructed by a local carpentry firm, a long running family business based in Cirali. Where possible the furnishings have been constructed also in the village by the carpenter.

The resort employs local people for its daily operations, drivers, gardeners and maintenance people are all from the community.

This is not an all inclusive type of holiday, and guests are encouraged to patron other local businesses, visit cultural sites and small family run restaurants. Entrance fees from local cultural sites is used to maintain the area, in particular the Chimaera flames, which is sustained and managed by the local community as opposed to local state government.

Cirali beach is a nestling site for the endangered Caretta Caretta - the loggerhead sea turtle. The turtles lay eggs in June which hatch in late August. The turtles conservation initiative is managed by locals and supported with donations from local tourism ventures such as this.
