    Three Palms - A permaculture start up project

    We are a couple from London who 3 years ago gave up our careers in film & art to restore an old farmhouse. We’re now embarked on a permaculture start up project growing all kinds of fruit trees & organic herbs & vegetables. We are located in the beautiful Xanthos valley in the shadow of an ancient Lycian city, not far from Fethiye. We are well placed for short day trips to Patara beach (30 mins), Saklikent Gorge (10mins) & the famous blue lagoon at Oludeniz (50mins).
    The stone cottage & barn have been lovingly restored & provide excellent accommodation for our guests, with stunning mountain views. We are particularly interested in design & our vision is to create a beautifully landscaped environment that is visually stimulating, organically productive & a pleasant place to live.

    We live in an authentic Turkish rural village community. All of our neighbours are friendly farmers producing all kinds of fruit, veg & cereals; Mainly oranges, figs, pomegranates, wheat, sesame & tomatoes.
    We want you to share with us our own experience of creating
    an organic, eco project and help us on our journey towards greater self sustainability.
    We are guided by the fundamentals of Permaculture Design & application and more than happy to share our methods & vision in this regard. We’re guaranteed 300 days of sunshine a year & for anyone

    Things to see on your days off
    include a whole host of Lycian and Roman cities to visit including Tlos, Xanthos and Letoon, swimming at the 25 kilometre long sandy beach at Patara, a 12-island boat trip from Fethiye, para-gliding at the world famous Olu Deniz, and white-water rafting at the nearby Saklikent Gorge.
