one of the things i most look forward to upon arrival in turkey is a visit to one of the many barbers shops, where you will get a haircut, massage, a shave and a wash all for a few pounds, it is absolutely unforgettable.

for the ladies you can get hairstyling, bleach, or color a 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 which are extremely cheap to nearby ortaca where you can shop in their immense variety of shops, or carry on to dalyan
we can arrange a minibus to collect you from and return you to our farm,

just a few miles down the road is a fast flowing ice cold crystal clear river set in a valley, where a restaurants dining area is a wooden bridge built over the river, where it is glorious to sit and order either fresh fish or a tandr kebab with a cold beer or a raki

monday is market day when all the locals do their shopping, here you can get all your needs from locally produced cheeses to local fruit and veg to fresh fish and meat etc as well as clothing and spices

trips can include mountain treks, fishing, bird watching, thermal and mud baths, turtle beach, cleopatra island, jeep safaris day trips to marmaris and much more.

one of the things i love to do when in town and before going back to the farm for the night is stop off at one of the specialist soup restaurants in koycegiz, for a tripe soup with a good helping of garlic and vinegar sauce
this not only warms me but helps me to have a really good nights sleep, it is also very good 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 on the premises

you can book chateau carman for a large family holiday or a group of friends or just a small group in one of our 2 bedroom apartments
chateau carman is unfortunately not suitable for the wheelchair bound or the very young
although we would do our utmost to help
