The yurts are spread out over three hectares and have plenty of private meadow around them.
Garden list compiled by Duncan in May 2007 (spotted from his yurt):
The Herb Garden Bar, decorated with beautiful antique kilims from Turkey, is the perfect place to relax and unwind in comfort, overlooking the garden and the main pool beyond. Soak up the sunshine on the circular sundeck or cool down in the plunge pool with a drink in your hand.
The bar is a focal point for people to get together for a drink, play cards and board games, or just curl up on the sofas with one of the coffee table books. Our lively tapas nights in the bar (Tuesdays, Thursdays and Sundays) have become as popular as the dinner nights. Watch the sun go down behind the mountains with a mojito made with mint straight from the garden and then enjoy our delicious selection of tapas (see our food page), in the candlelit bar beside the glowing floodlit plunge pool surrounded by lanterns.
For those looking for peace and tranquillity throughout the day, the main pool has a deck with sunbeds and parasols, as well as the poolside pergola with its comfy Turkish style seating.
Breakfast is served daily at the long table in the pergola, as well as a three course dinner four nights a week (Mondays, Wednesdays, Fridays and Saturdays). All food is from our kitchen garden or locally produced, and flavoured with herbs from the garden. We also offer lunch every day. (See our food page.) We don't have self catering facilities.
If you feel like pampering yourself, book in for a full body aromatherapy massage, a reflexology session or a Thai yoga massage, outdoors under the shade of the cork trees. Or you might prefer some invigorating yoga. For those looking for something a little more active there is riding from the village out into the local countryside, and many scenic walks within the valley, as well as others further afield.
At the end of the day, sit out and watch the stars come out.
