  • Description


    Hi everybody :)

    I am Serdar, 37 years old and a Food Engineer, after 5 years in the industry I decided gave up my job and move back to Marmaris, for a more relaxed pace of life. Now me and my family manage a eco campsite in the national park Akbuk Bay, Akyaka, Mugla..

    The campsite is only 2 minutes from the beach and surrounded by lots of eucalyptus trees and a huge pine forest. There is a calm and peaceful atmosphere here, where you can unplug yourself in one of our hammocks or around the campfire.

    We have been rejevenating, repairing our campsite over the last 2 years and now have 7 bungalows, a stone house and spaces for tents and caravans . We also have on site a garden restaurant and bar.

    Have you got any interests or talents which you could teach me or the guests? (painting, sports, fishing, yoga etc.)

    PS: (MIN. 30 DAYS)
