  • Description


    Our farm is located on a secluded beach of Cunda island in the Aegean sea. We are Recep (61) who knows every single part of the island and Ceyda (30) who is trying to understand the anthropological aspects of hospitality. We organized the beach shelter as a restaurant including the general farm, however are generally relying on our garden, goats and chickens, sea and the nature. AND there are always things to do here.
