Pastoral Vadi Ecologic Life Farm
Ranked #83 of 137 Specialty Lodging in Fethiye
Reviewed August 22, 2009

I was there in July 09 to volunteer on the Farm w/ a friend... overall a wonderful experience and I was sad to leave. The high point was certainly meeting all the interesting people who are part of the farm, the other volunteers and the guests. The kitchen was the soul of the place.. many amazing meals and conversations there... the farm is quite fun to visit for a casual visitor but as a volunteer interested in organic farming I found some room for improvement...
If you are interested in exploring a simple Turkish country life, living in a nice valley, close to the Mediterranean, away from the tourist traps than PV is a nice place... kids can run wild and all the modern amenities are available.
I also liked that one can go on many daily excursions and come back to the calmness of the farm...
if you are in a hurry to come for a short trip then I think its best to look elsewhere... Its best to come to this farm for atleast a week as I feel it takes that long to really get into the rhythm and fully appreciate all that the place has to offer.
have fun.

What can I say - we had the most amazing time at Pastoral Vadi, where we stayed for ten days this April.
Upon arrival we felt right at home, like part of the family. There was always a wood fire, tea and a smile to be found in the kitchen. The food is best described as organic homemade farmers food - truly the real deal.
Kids will love this place as there are animals, a little river, playground etc and most likely some other kids around to play with. There are also the two farm dogs, who will take walks with you and even sleep on your balcony at times. The other guests we met were all of the very interesting, nice and international type - I brought lots of books but never really read much as there was always good conversation to be found if you looked for it.
We stayed in one of the stone houses, it was fun to learn how to keep a fire going in the stove at night, and the rooms were nice and clean with a lovely veranda.
Ahmed, the owner, speaks English and will arrange for an airport pick up if you wish. It is a good area to go hiking, and within a 10min drive you will find yourself at a nice beach. There is also plenty of historical stuff to discover if you wish, or you can drive to Fethiye for the markets. If you are looking for quiet times, they are to be found at the farm, too.
Everyone there was so truly genuinly nice and helpful. We can't thank them all enough - it was difficult to leave, really.
For those of you who want to relax and disconnect and are looking for something different this is a place to come to.

Pastoral Vadi is a delight. I've travelled a lot but have never experienced such genuine heartfelt hospitality! Their setting nestled beneath mountains, 15 mins from the Med with their own Organic orchard is exquisite. All buildings and pool is eco - no chemicals or air con just clever desgin and building. The rammed earth and stone cottages are very sweet as are the shaded spots for snoozing. And the food! Delicious, all grown organically on their property and then cooked from scratch (wood fired stove). This place is the real deal. Nicola from Australia
