Comfortable wooden bungalow with 2 bedrooms and a living room, fully equipped kitchen and spacious bathroom. All rooms have modern silent air conditions in a 4,500 sqm large mediterranean garden with orange, lemon and avocado trees. Incl. breakfast.
Our bungalow is located in a lovely mediterranean garden with many orange trees. There is enough space for you to relax and for your children to feel free when meanwhile they are totally safe. In the garden there are nice pavilions with cushions where you can read a book and drink a tea or a cup of coffee, which we bring you. Our garden is at the foot of the mountains in Cirali. So even in the hotter period we have a fresh breeze of clean mountain air coming down. This makes your stay even in summer much more comfortable as if you were in the plains.
My wish and "concept" is friendship. I love people, I love different cultures and languages. It is great to learn to know so many different interesting people. So with us you can feel really like at home. But in a natural paradise near to the sea.
Interaction with guests
It is all about the well being of our guests. We see them as friends. We always welcome them on our terrace or wherever they like in our garden. If you are interested we would love to give you all the information about this unique natural place in Cirali and all the possibilities you have to explore whatever you are interested in. It can be trekking on the amazing lycian way, making a boat trip to the beautiful coves around, visiting the numerous historical sites like Myra, Arycanda, Termessos, and many more. Our aim is that you don't just spend time but collect unique lifetime inspirations.
Other things to note
Beside Turkish I am nearly fluent in German and I speak a bit of English. Two friends of us, George and his wife, help us also with more German, English and Russian. We have guests from all over the world, from Germany, Italy, France, Russia, India or New Zealand for example.
Please follow the usual rules for pensions and small hotels.
I am running a small pension with a few new built bungalows in Cirali a still secluded and hidden natural place at the Turquoise Coast. Since my very young age of about 14 years I am working in tourism and I learned at different places and hotels like Robinson Club for example. In my early twenties I worked as a cook in the first restaurant in Cirali. When I got the opportunity to run my own business I had the chance to find a very beautiful place in Cirali which is quiet and has a lot of different fruit trees.
I love cooking and I love hosting people from different cultures and parts of the world. This enriches me and the more different people come to me the better, So I can learn to know the world. I cook only for my guests and there is no menu. Every morning I am thinking of the people staying with us and try to find something that could fit their taste and that they don't know from turkish cuisine. I don't prepare the usual meals you can get everywhere. It is an authentic style with local recipes I have varied a bit and all prepared with fresh ingredients like wild thymian, basil, oregano and many others.
Our place is simple and basic, there is no 5 star allure. But we want our guests to feel totally comfortable and free. We try to create an atmosphere that guests who come to us feel like friends. So from the very beginning more intuitively we called our place "Dostlar Evi" which means "House of friends".
I speak beside Turkish, also German and a bit English. And two good friends of mine George and his wife Sofya who live in Antalya help us also in communicating with our guests considering their bookings in different languages like German, English, Russian, French, Hungarian. They will also love to help you with all the needed information whatever you want to know about our place or Cirali in general.
