About Accommodation:

Walking inland from the house, you are quickly alone in a heady swirl of wild thyme and rosemary, the winding path stumbling suddenly on overgrown castle ruins, or pensive shepherds, before dropping down suddenly to the narrow bay and a welcome swim. Most of the courses take place on the roof terrace with its panoramic views, or on the new platform in the garden, and you can always find a quiet corner to meditate, read or doze in the afternoon sun. We eat around the table on the veranda. Our instructors, all professionals from a wide range of backgrounds, stay in the house as well, so with small groups you are guaranteed individual attention.

Once an olive press, the house is a calm and intimate place in Old Datça, a quiet cobbled village near the sea. With the mountains sweeping up behind, and olive groves all around, it’s the ideal place to immerse yourself in one of our courses or retreats, whether to deepen your practice or try something new. An isolated haven from which to observe the eddies and whorls of your daily life.

The village is a few Km from Datça town with its relaxed seafront, ferries to Marmaris and Rhodes, and inviting restaurants grilling fish fresh from the boats in the harbour.

The food we offer varies with the courses, but is usually a vegetarian blend of Mediterranean,Asian, and traditional Turkish home cooking. Our homemade jams are legendary, and we always use fresh local ingredients; seasonal fruits and vegetables, local fish, fresh cheese and yoghurts, and of course excellent olives.

About Location:

Datça is only tenuously attached to the Turkish mainland by a long, narrow ridge of mountains that fall into the sea. Owing to this isolation, and being almost entirely covered by National Park, the peninsular is largely undeveloped and has only one town.

There are no large resort hotels or mass tourism, and even in summer you can be almost alone on the more secluded beaches. The peninsular has six attended blue flag beaches, and the water is warm enough to swim from April to December.

Despite being a tranquil backwater now, the Datça peninsular has long been strategically important, first as an independent city state, and later as a trading post and military base on the busy sea route between Western Europe and the Middle East.

Knidos, once a thriving city on the tip of the peninsular that enjoyed various degrees of autonomy under Greek and Roman rule, was finally destroyed by an earthquake in the 8th Century.

In 480 BC Xerxes’ Persian fleet passed the city on their way to a pivotal defeat by Athens at the battle of Salamis; Praxiteles is said to have carved his famous Aphrodite here; and St. Paul stayed in 52 AD on his way to Amphipolis, in Roman Thrace, and eventual matyrdom. Datça is reknowned throughout Turkey for its excellent climate and the longevity of its’ residents.

Whilst it is wet in the early part of the year, from April until October there is virtually no rainfall. Spring and Autumn are mild, with the temperature usually in the mid /high 20s, and peak temperatures of about 35C in July and August, although these are eased by the constant sea breeze. The same breeze that is also responsible for the peninsular’s unusually low humidity.
