About our home

My home is a newly renovated traditional stone cottage that is nestled in magnificent surroundings. Although it is small with a single bed upstairs and rollaway underneath it reflects with comfort the tranquility of this place. All floors are Travatine marble and the kitchen and stairs hand made by local craftsmen. İt has the modern comforts of double glazing and solar heated water. The outside area is split into 3 levels making the most of the small area. From the patio there are mountain views and partial sea vıew which is 3 klm away. Peace seekers will love what a stay in Eski Datca is about. A tiny, inland village sitting above its modern counterpart Datca, 3 kilometers away, is a quaint little place off the beaten track. Picturesque, crooked, stone houses line the narrow, cobbled streets and the village exudes charm and tranquility and is now a protected historical village.
There are 3 small restaurants, 1 grocery shop, 3 craft shops offering handmade silver, stain glass, local traditional silk cloth weaving and made gifts and natural fiber clothing. In the heart of the village Seda runs a Yoga Centre offering various therapies. There is very little going on here, making it perfect for chilling-out and meeting the local villagers and small community of interenational residents. Mehmet Ali Aga Konagi Museum Famously restored, to traditional style, Ottoman Mansion located in Resadyie, a village 3 kilometers away, set in beautiful gardens.


More about us

  1. After spending most of my life running around the globe I eventually found the perfect life here in Turkey enjoying visits to Guatemala and to visit my sister in Spain. My background of work was the hustle and bustle of studying Hotelerie in Brussels, working at sea for 10 years, and running a Traditional Hand sugaring and Indian Head massage clinic in the UK. Now in my 50’s I have a more peaceful lifestyle finding harmony of living in a more natural environment that gives a sense of timelessness. I enjoyed very much restoring my home that was originally a stable, it was a pleasure to be able to create a space that reflects the peacefulness of the area that helps inspire the need to create whatever that may mean to the individual whether it be to paint, write, develop new ideas or to simply be with yourself to discover yourself.
    During winter I stay in Guatemala usually helping at a Meditation centre and support a local Mayan village doing voluntary work for a trash project as there is no system in place for collection. I am also a therapist practicing energy work. I usually travel to Guatemala alone but visit my sister in Spain with another sister and daughter who also live here in Turkey.

Where is it?


Datca Town, 3 klm away, is a dreamy seaside town with a sleepy laid back atmosphere. It has a picturesque harbour often filled with yachts and lined with restaurants, bars & cafes. There are three small beaches in Datca Town. At Taslik beach the unique feature is a natural hot water pool containing dissolved minerals claimed to cure many ailments. The pool feeds a small waterfall of about 1 metre high pouring 4-5 tons of water per minute into the Med. Datca has a gentleness that evades many other resorts. It has a magical quality of its own many who visit return year after year. Frequent buses leave daily to major cities. Climate 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 3540C in July and August.
What attracted me to Datca was the beauty of the peninsular which is a100 kilometer leg of land protruding off the mainland where the Agean sea lies on one side and the Mediterranean on the other giving a sense of almost being on an island surrounded by water. It is the place where the 2 seas meetwith many secluded bays to be descovered.Driving through the small villages scattered around the Peninsula you will be surprised to find how traditional life continues. Available are diving and boat trips from the harbour calling at many of the bays unreachable by road. Famous archeological site of KNÄ°DOS 330BC is 35 klms away.
