Born in Demre I am a child of the Mediterranean, I moved away to a big city life and career in engineering afterwards. Working hard for many years in the private sector was quite stressful and with my dear wife Canan, we made the decision to move to a small village to spend more time with our hobbies and interests in the marvellous nature of my hometown. I was the first one to exit Professional life in order to find our idyllic location to a new life. After a long search, travelling from Cannakkale to Antalya I came upon Hoyran 3km from Davazlar, my village of birth.
After viewing the location, Canan and I purchased the land in March 2002. We travelled the region to research the architecture of traditional village houses drawing many sketches and making notes along our way. We started construction of Hoyran Wedre in March 2003 and Canan continued her professional career until 2008. During that period, we came together for a weekend every 15 days alternating between Hoyran and Istanbul. During those trips,we travelled over 80000 km equivalent to twice around the globe and our travelling expenses eventually cost more than the land purchase.
The project was completed and we opened our doors to our first guests In 2006, We are now part of the community, bringing many benefits to the local economy and social life in Hoyran Village. We have been very careful to respect the peculiarities of the village and create a harmonious balance between tourism and local culture…
During the day, our quests can join us in the garden watering the plants, feeding the animals or picking the seasonal fruits. For the less active people, relaxing in a hammock with a good book and refreshing oneself from time to time with a dip in the pool is an exciting alternative. In the spring and autumn we lead walks along the Lycian Way path exploring many ancient sites.
Free from the stress of city life, come and join us to share the sublime nature in a tranquil village setting.
