Take a tour of lake Koycegiz, where you will see the ruins of ancient Caunos, Sultaniye thermal and mud baths are thermal springs, which have health benefits for different skin and muscle problems. (But beware do not stay in the thermal water longer than 15 minutes, come out for 5 minutes and then go back)
And then through the fishing weirs onto the Mediterranean Sea where you will encounter Turtle Beach.
We can also arrange on your behalf 3 or 6 day fixed tours, which would include a meal
This would be at an additional cost to yourselves min 12 people (details and prices will be published soon) booking and payment must be received 2 weeks prior to your stay
The 3 or 6 day tours can be arranged to suit your requirements e.g. on alternate days etc
Marmaris is only a 45 minute drive from Koycegiz, which is where you will be able to spend the day shopping in air conditioned shopping centres,
And find a large range of jewellery, clothes, souvenirs' and food. As well as restaurants, bars, water-sports and boat trips, which take place during the day and in the evenings,
Where you will be entertained with singers and belly dancing and during the trip you will be served a good meal.
One of the things I most look forward to upon arrival in Turkey is a visit to one of the many barbers shops in and around Koycegiz where you will get a haircut and wash plus a shave and a massage
It is absolutely unforgettable and all for around about £4 including a tip
Or for the ladies hairstyling, bleach or colour and manicure and a pedicure as well as a massage that you will never forget all for a fraction of the cost in the UK, my wife disappears for 5 hours on these occasions
You can catch a taxi or a bus (dolmus these run every half hour and are extremely cheap) to nearby Ortaca, where you can shop in their immense variety of shops or to Dalyan.
We can also arrange a mini bus to collect you from and return you to our farm
We can prearrange mountain treks / or hiring of bikes for you or you can visit a variety of fresh fish restaurants by the lakeside
There is a restaurant where seating is arranged over an ice cold fast flowing river, which is crystal clear, and you will be served a fish meal or a Tandir kebab with salad and drinks of your choice.
Monday is market day, when all the locals do their shopping and you can get all your needs from here, ranging from, fresh, locally grown fruit and vegetables, to fresh fish.

There are so many places to see and so much to do in this beautiful part of the world
Activities Around Koycegiz
Mountain treks, fishing, bird watching, mud baths, boat trips to turtle beach, Cleopatra island, jeep safaris, day trips to marmaris/dalyan, trips to eagle lake high up in the agla mountains and much more
I personally enjoy going to one of the local cafés in the centre of town for a tripe soup with a good helping of vinegar and garlic sauce. This not only warms you but it helps me to have a really good nights sleep and it’s excellent for hangovers.
Of course you can opt for one of the many other soups on the menu such as kebab soup or pacha or lentil to name but a few and all made fresh daily on the premises.
You can book château Carman for a large family holiday, or a group of friends or just a small group in one of our 2 bedroom apartments
