  • Description


    We are a hard working French / Turkish couple running a farm next to Dalyan, in the Aegean side of Turkey since 2012.

    We produce lemons and peaches in our garden. Also, we have cows and sheep’s, chickens and gooses, dogs and cats and one horse. We try to be as much independent as we can and we produce our own cheese, yoghurt, butter and grow vegetables in the kitchen garden.

    We love our animals..
