At the Yediburunlar Lighthouse, almost everything is done with all the guests at the inn. There is a specific itinerary of when to arrive at the house so that guests can meet and greet at the same time. Guests eat breakfast, dinner and some lunches together, with scheduled walks and trips on the water. Yediburunlar Lighthouse gives guests a chance to experience Turkey with an expert. Semra Aydeniz, one of Turkey’s leading vegetarian chefs, both the owner, and the chef. Meals are never repeated throughout the week and include foods such as green peppers, stuffed with flavoured rice and small raisins or broccoli salad with lemon and garlic dressing for dinner, and freshly baked bread with tomatoes, cucumber, olives, feta cheese, eggs, and village butter for breakfasts. Located in view of mountains and sea on the south coast of Turkey, Yediburunlar Lighthouse is focused towards providing a structured vegetarian vacation spot.

Comments, reviews and questions by other travellers

We have stayed there twice and had a marvellous time.

The owners built and manage the property themselves and over the years have extended and developed the rooms and the site but have not spoilt the identity of a special hide-away. Nothing is too much trouble for them to make your visit ideal; the food is superb, Leon arranges walks and visits to nearby villages and also a day trip to the coast can usually be included. Semra offers yoga sessions that are truly magnificent, especially with the views of the sea and cliffs. Other guests are usually of similar dispositions so the clientele gel together very well. The remoteness of the property is an advantage but some visitors might not enjoy the long journey from the airport - especially if you arrive after dark. But don't worry; early morning brings fantastic views and the reality of getting away from the world without losing luxury and choices. Only disadvantage is that the property is small so quickly gets booked up so make your plans well ahead.

Turkey is a magical and diverse country - whether you want to get into the nightlife of Istanbul, sit around drinking tea with the locals, camp under the stars, go trekking, learn about the culture or dive into the pristine waters of the Mediteranean, there is an experience to suit you.

Yediburunlar Lighthouse Cooking School

Up until 2008, guests have visited the Yediburunlar lighthouse to relax in the spectacular surroundings, to enjoy the specially designed day trips that the hotel runs to help you experience as much of the region as possible, and finally to gorge themselves on the delectable cuisine produced by Semra, the hotel chef. As if all this isn’t motive enough to spend a week at the hotel enjoying the Turkish sun and lounging around by the pool, at the hotel you can now do a week cooking course to learn how to whip up a 6 course meze feast of dishes like smoked aubergine with cheese sauce, sautéed mushrooms, walnuts, onion, garlic and cumin or fried Haloumi cheese with red peppers. Most of the food will be vegetarian, but you’ll also be barbecuing aromatic fish in the Turkish sunshine and using the best organic produce the region has to offer. You can work off all the eating by going on organised walks to local secluded beaches and swimming in the crystal clear water to cool off during one of the hotel’s weekly gulet cruises.

Truly a High Spot !

There are unfortunately few people in this world who can take a bare cliff top and transform it into a retreat from the the world, that has a unique relaxing influence on its guests.Leon and Semra have achieved this (and more) at Yediburunlar Lighthouse.

Arriving at a remote village, miles after leaving the tarmac behind you will receive the warmest welcome and a light supper which hints at the delights of the vegetarian meals and excellent wine to come throughout your stay. The place that you come to share is truly a home and was built by them to offer an escape to 10 to 12 guests.On waking next morning you will be astounded by the views of the torquoise sea far below and the mountains inland.

Adjusting to this experience may take you a day or two, and its fair to say the feel is very en famille, but relax you will. To help you keep up your appetite for the fantastic meals Leon guides local walks, which are chosen and tailored to suit that weeks guests. Some prefer to enjoy the pool and the tranquility.

You will never leave Yediburunlar behind, a small part of it will leave with you and drive you to return. If you let it, it will raise you above the daily grind.
