Following the Ancient Carian Paths


Greetings of merhaba! (hello!) fill the air as you walk the countryside outside Bodrum. Splash in the Aegean Sea, then relax over a spread of Turkish specialties. Walk along inlets marking the shore of the neighboring Bodrum Peninsula. Veer away from the beach to enter a forest cloaking the hilly coastal range. Investigate the well-preserved CASTLE and remains of Carian settlement in Pedasa or Kirel. An easygoing walk past olive groves and vineyards takes you through forested hills down to the Aegean. Dip your toes in the sea or continue on two wheels, climbing to traditional hamlets. There will be beautiful panoramic views, goat paths, forrests, local life, untouched nature and many more. Our route can vary depending on your requests from 6 to 14 km. with ascending heights of 300 to 600 meters. After the walks there are possibilities of olive oil, wine tasting and watching the ladies weave carpets.

In 2012, Ebru & Fatih couple built the Eco Farm Boutique Hotel from scratch. Eco Farm Boutique Hotel, which is located on Turgutreis Pren Mountain is built with the least harm to the environment and carries the traces of a deep philosophy on its basis. We can call this deep philosophy a return to our essence.
The holiday at Eco Farm Boutique Hotel is actually second to none. Because today's holiday concepts (drinking plenty of food, having fun in noisy environments, spend time in artificial environments which are disconnected from nature, being alone betwwen thousands of people...) are just fort he show and no longer an economic stance and out of the purpose. That's what Eco Farm Boutique Hotel believes that this understanding should change. Humans are a part of nature and nature is not a part of humans. For a resting and quiet holiday we need to go back tour essence and avoid the gaudy . Here Eco Farm Boutique Hotel offers you the opportunity to calm down by touching these delicate subjects sweetly. Eco Farm Boutique Hotel also contributes to nature in its own way. One of the biggest reasons for environmental pollution is the need for energy in the world. In Eco Farm Boutique Hotel, unnecessary electronic gaudy (air conditioning tv automation ...) was deliberately avoided. As part of our philosophy, we produce our own energy needs from the sun through solar panels within the scope of respect for nature. We contribute by ourselves for a clean future. The Eco Farm Boutique Hotel, which is home to plenty of street animals, is trying to connect the gap created by modern animal life with a bridge. Some people see alien creatures as other creatures in nature. This is an indication of how far we are from our essence. There is so much to write! In short, being human is not that easy. The more you get away from us, the harder it gets. When you are on holiday, Eco Farm Boutique Hotel will make you feel that the luxury and glamour that modern life imposes on you is actually unnecessary. All the items you use other than our basic needs are not an extra burden for you, and you will understand that you are not doing anything else but making your life difficult. Come live and feel! Eco Farm Boutique Hotel is 3 km from Kadıkalesi Beach, 4 km from Camel Beach, 5 km from Hüseyin Burnu Lighthouse, 4 km from Bağla Bay, 14 km from Bodrum Teachers' House, 10 km from Sandima Village, Bodrum Karaada It is 16 km away from Orak Island, 17 km away from Bodrum Cennet Bay, 35 km away from Tuzla Bird Sanctuary and 34 km away from Zeytinlikuyu Beach.
