Our Ecological Garden

Akdeniz Bahcesi is an eco-hotel in the midst of a tranquil Mediterranean garden. Our 4.5 acres are filled with flowers and bird song. We grow a variety of vegetables and have almost 200 fruit trees, including pomegranates, apples, oranges, tangerines, grapefruits, lemons, avocados, white and black mulberries, plums, figs, olives, grapes, pomelos, walnuts, pecan nuts, and dates. Our garden is scented with Mediterranean jasmines, begonias, mimosas, magnolias, Chinese wisterias and lilies. We were awarded our organic certificate in 2005, from EKOTAR.

Our garden is a natural paradise for children, with lots of space to run, climb and play. We have shady areas for relaxing on lazy summer days, and plenty of opportunities to get to know our cat Uzum and all of our chickens. If you are lucky you may even spot a wild tortoise or chameleon!

We have a special area set aside where children can paint stones and make necklaces from natural materials such as seashells and beads. Of course, adults are welcome to play here, too!
