The space

Our mission is to preserve, celebrate, promote and share the unique traditions, values, experience, as well as the secrets of Turkish village and countryside living.

My home, The Secret, is your home. It is our home. Located just 20 minutes east of Bodrum in a breath-taking, peaceful, relaxing, natural forest setting on a hilltop in Kumköy and surrounded by the Yaran Mountains, The Secret is my way of sharing my passion for nature and traditional Turkish village and countryside life with the world.

You can enjoy walks and bike rides in the forest, along country lanes, and visit authentic and traditional Turkish villages. You can swim in the pool, read or paint in one of our many seating areas and do yoga under the shade of one of our many trees. If you have kids they can enjoy the play area with swings and sand pit - camping in the grounds is also an option for them whilst you enjoy the comfort of a bed in the house!

We are open to the public by reservation on Sundays for Brunch made by local village ladies from local products. It is an authentic experience you will savour with fellow travellers and visiting Nationals seeking the 'real' Turkey and it is 'on the house' for our guests!

We also harvest from the Secret's vegetable garden. We enjoy a simple, quiet life, nurturing and reaping from the land. we would like to share this retreat style living with you.

We have three rooms to rent. The Family room with large balcony (sleeps 2-4) double + day bed which converts to a double. The King room with Balcony (sleeps 2-3) king-size bed + single on request. The Casual room (suits a single traveller or couple) double with wardrobe and easy access to all exterior areas. The premises is spacious and comfortably houses up to 12 people.

We run our home, The Secret, in a socially responsible way, growing organically, sourcing, partnering, giving and employing locally, providing educational and volunteer opportunities, and following eco-friendly and sustainable living standards and work practices.
