“The place to be in Cirali”
Reviewed September 8, 2013

We decided pretty late for going on vacation. Due to that fact we had to switch to another hotel in Cirali which makes the review about Akdeniz Bahcesi even more comprehensive. All in all we spent 10 perfect days in that hotel. Right from the beginning we felt the famous Turkish hospitality. Everything is arranged for finding a retreat to lean back and enjoy the vacation. The garden is a green paradise with a wide range of different fruit trees. It provides a perfect playground to children, too. In comparison to the other hotel Akdeniz Bahcesi does not want to maximize the income by having as much bungalows as possible on its ground. By doing so the owners ensure the necessary level of quiteness and personal interaction with their guests which makes Akdeniz Bahcesi the place to be in Cirali for us. One important point is the quality of the food. For dinner we tried several restaurants in Cirali but none of them came even close to the taste of the food Serpil creates in her little kitchen.

This is a delightful setting for a holiday. 5 houses in a large fruit orchard, moments from the sea. The level of service provided by the family is exemplary and unintrusive. Everything is done simply and without fuss. The craft workshops for children provided us with many enjoyable hours of painting beach stones, weaving, learning to crochet in between trips to the beach - early morning to see baby turtles (like being part of a David Attenborough documentary) , cycle trips to the Chimeras or Olympos, walks along the Lycian way, snorkeling, boat trips. The fruit trees are bountiful - main harvest occurs in September but we were able to pick early figs, lemons, blood red grapefruit and oranges and suspect the avocados will be delicious. A very relaxing way to spend 10 days. The Turkish towels that Serpil sells are better quality and better value than any we saw in Cirali or Istanbul. Combining this location with 4 days in Istanbul provided us with a perfect summer holiday. (2 adults, 2 children aged 4 and 8)

Room Tip: the stone house had thick walls which was useful if you find the crowing cockerels a nuisance!

We stayed for 3 weeks and confidently conclude that there is a reason for the overwhelmingly positive remarks in the many reviews on Tripadvisor: you get what you read. There is no sugar coating in the descriptions. Only thing to add could be that Kudret and Serpil are truly very good at making you feel welcome. They do this by being very sincere in providing a service. We have already booked for next year. Enjoy!

Cirali is a paradise! Well, I guess you already know this since your searching for accommodation in Cirali. Well, then more about Akdeniz Bahcesi. We stayed with two small children, 10 months and 3 years. There couldn't be a place more perfect than this! The house, we stayed in the green house, is just lovely! The owners have great taste, it's a mix of local craft, beautiful textiles, high quality furniture and Ikea, but very well done. The house is not huge, but perfect. Looking out of the windows, you see green: the orange trees, grapes, flowers.. Even though your staying in a little house, it feels like beeing outside the whole time, but you have the comfort of the house. We didn't really cook, because there are so many places to go out for lunch and dinner (including this place!), food is great, fresh, healthy and cheap. But we did use the kitchen to eat small things, like fruits, vegetables, prepare some baby food.
During the hottest time of the day, we hanged out in the absolutely lovely garden. there's the terrace, a hammock, a small playarea for the kids, we even got a childrenspool for our 3 year old.
Well, I absolutely recommend this place to everybody who love nature, lovely designs and taste, quietness (oh yes, there were some reviews here saying that the cock and the muezzin were a problem at night; well, I packed my earplugs but honestly, I never used them and not even once heard anything disturbing. Can't really imagine this problem, unless you have an extremley!! light sleep...), the personal touch of a very small pension (only 5 houses). We will be back!

Akdeniz Bahcesi is a wonderful and very special place. 4 houses located in a huge garden with many trees that provide enough shade throughout the extremely sunny days. For the kids, they have little pools and a lot of toys and activities. The houses, which are all individualy and tastefully decorated, are spaced out well leaving enough privacy for everyone. The hosting family is extremely hospitable and treat all of the guests as friends. They immediately make you feel comfortable, serve wonderful breakfast and cook very delicious dinners upon request. The most quiet part of the beach is right in front of the door. We will be back asap!!!

We stayed for 2 weeks and had a marvelous time. The breakfast, the pool for the kids, the chickens, the Sea in 4 minutes walk are all good reasons to stay here. The owners are such amazing people, they read every wish from your lips and are the friendliest human beings one can meet. I would like to start coming here every summer for the next 20 years.

Akdeniz Bahcesi is a magical place: five comfortable and well-appointed houses situated in a large garden. Children have the run of the garden (along with an small army of cats and chickens), and there are craft activities laid on for them in a shady part.

Breakfast is included in the price, but you can choose to eat an evening meal in the family restaurant. Serpil specialises in traditional Turkish home cooking, which is a world away from the standard pide/mezze/kebab menu offered by the local restaurants. Everything was freshly prepared and utterly delicious.

There were plenty of things to do, though most of our time was spent on the beach, we managed a few bike trips to the ruined city of Olympos, and to the Chimera, and we noticed that the local travel agents also organised boat trips and excursions for what looked like fairly reasonable prices. Kudret organised the prompt and courteous airport transfer, and helped make this most relaxing holiday that we've had in years.

Room Tip: The Green House faces away from the mosque, but nothing will save you from the all-night cockerel bo...

At Akdeniz Bahcesi (the “Mediterranean Garden”) eco-resort, we offer five self-catering holiday cottages situated in an organic fruit orchard, just 100 meters from the Cirali beach. We provide a peaceful, family-friendly destination with plenty of space where children can play and adults can unwind. We also offer traditional weaving workshops and eco-friendly craft activities. We have five adult-sized bicycles (3 of which have a child seat) and two bikes for kids; you may borrow them any time for free. We are a family from Istanbul who settled in Cirali in 1996. We wanted to get away from hectic city life and create a peaceful, sustainable, family-oriented vacation haven near the lovely Cirali beach. With this in mind, we decided to convert our summer home into a family-owned bed and breakfast. Since 2005, we’ve provided a variety of self-catering accommodation options for fun family vacations and relaxing beach holidays. We’re committed to preserving the beautiful environment of Cirali and we’ve maintained organic certification for our fruit orchard since 2005. We look forward to hosting you for your next family holiday in Cirali, Turkey. ... more   less
