  • Description


    An ecological village in the eastern black sea! We live in our traditional house with our family of 4, and host our guests in our pension that we built with our own means. We harvest our fruits and vegetables that we grow in many of our lands in the valley where our village is located, and our products; We turn them into jams, dried fruits, pastes and jar them. We hold various workshops of these products in every period of the year and share them with people. Our aim is to stay in our own loop and adopt the idea of zero waste and continue our lives with our products. Being in touch with nature. It will be an honor for us to share these experiences with each of our guests and to announce our family all over the world.
