The inspiration for the architecture of our Retreat we took from the Village Eski Karakaya which was built by the locals in 15th century to protect themselves from piracy at those times. Its hidden on the mountains of Karakaya viewing the Greek islands Kalimnos and Leros. We used wherever possible original, local and natural materials, such as stone for the walls of the houses, lime & sand as the mortar and the roofs are constructed out of a special local earth, wood, sea weed, local herbs, local bamboo and clay tiles.

Helping with Tourists
Located in a beautiful fisherman town, but up in its rocky mountain, Karakaya is really on the other end of the sea from the beautiful Greek islands. It is very easy to travel from Bodrum to everywhere in the southern and Aegean coast of Turkey.
As well as cultural heritage of the land and the variety of people who are circulating throughout the whole season, volunteers are always welcomed to join the offered daily meditations, some offered yoga classes, sometimes dances, evening events(if there is an event happening).
If interested, they can explore a lot about the Anatolian, Mediterranean cuisine, gluten-free and vegetarian cooking. In short, they can explore a healthy living and self inquiry in the meantime.
Volunteers help us with diverse activities. Helping us recycle, keep an eye on the compost, or offer anything you are good at that you think would help us or add color to our lives! Playing and making projects with the kids. Watering, weeding and planting the gardens.
