Yurt actually means ‘home’ in Turkish and is a traditional Turkic structure, still home to many people in Mongolia, Turkmenistan, Kirgizistan and other Turkic republics. Our yurts are comfortable and well appointed with wooden floors, doors, electricity and ‘proper’ beds. They adjust to the ambient temperature, so are cool at night so you can sleep in comfort. You can see the stars from your bed through the roof wheel known as ‘the eye of heaven’.
There are also four safari tents, with a similar level of comfort but smaller.
The studio cottage can accommodate two, as can the Summer House which has partially open sides which look out over the top of the trees and yurts.
Bathroom and shower facilities are shared, and are conveniently placed around the site. They are kept immaculately clean and hot water is supplied by solar power.
In Huzur Valley we cultivate olives, figs, almonds, apples, pears, grapes, mulberries, plums, walnuts and organic vegetables, tomatoes, aubergines, green beans, peppers, and all kinds of fresh salads and herbs.
We are surrounded by typical Mediterranean flora and fauna, and the scents of mountain herbs thyme, oregano, sage and pine resin. At night you can hear owls and nightingales. If you are lucky it is possible to hear foxes barking, wild pigs searching for roots and fallen fruit, hedgehogs snuffling in the garden. At night the valley is completely dark when there is no moon, the stars are spectacular, a rare sight in our permanently lit towns.
At full moon is almost as bright as day, shining on the shadowy forest.
The serenity of the valley creates the perfect ambience for yoga, meditation or to focus on your selected course. You can walk in the forest, spend a day on the legendary Huzur Valley boat trip around the islands of Göcek Bay or simply relax by the pool. You will leave Huzur Valley refreshed, renewed, reconnected to yourself and others.
