our best family holiday yet-the kids loved it. we stayed a day at the farm & the next day we went out; to Saklikent Gorge, to Patara beach three times and kayaked around St Nicholas island, visiting ruins on the way home.
we ate most evenings & half our lunches from the restaurant, the kids enjoyed the food & we loved it- not a duff meal. I think our bill came to 400 pounds- certainly much cheaper than we thought the 2 week total would be
Anthea looked after us with great care & interest, laying on arts & crafts for the children & even a birthday party for our oldest. Bob her husband kept us entertained too. I fell in love with 1 of the dogs (don't much like animals usually) & the other dog became our faithful companion coming on our early morning runs. The staff also were very smiley & nice
days at the farm passed tranquilly with beautiful short evening walks (scent of pine trees & vistas over craggy headlands of golden suns plopping into blinding seas), pony & donkey rides and the children able to explore freely around the farm- the kids loved the freedom. we chilled at the poolside sheltering under a roof of grape vines lounging on the Turkish divans- we all felt really relaxed by the time we left
At the beach the temperature could be a ferocious humid 40+ but at the farm it was a dry 30. evenings were warm or even cool & some nights we had to close the windows because we felt a little chilly
we can't go back because a second time won't be as wonderful as our first & we've 'done' what there is to do nearby- which is a great shame because I can't expect our next holiday to be as wonderful as this one was
