Huzur Vadisi is a Yoga Retreat Centre situated on the coast of Turkey referred to as the Turquoise coast. By definition, “a yurt is a portable tent dwelling structure traditionally used by nomads in the steppes of Central Asia.”

Here at Huzur Vadisi, the yurts come equipped with either twin or double beds, electricity, wooden floors and bedside lights for reading. The roof is open to the sky and referred to as the “eye of heaven” so as you fall asleep, you are gazing at the stars.

There are 10 yurts nestled among the fig and olive groves. Bathrooms are in near proximity and are equipped with toilets, sinks and hot showers. You will find hammocks throughout the grounds where you can meditate, read, take a nap or just look out into the sky. This is all about yoga, peace and relaxation – your cell phones will not work here, so if you cannot possibly unplug, this is not for you.

Huzur Vadisi is about an hour’s flight from Istanbul – 10 minutes from the sea and about 40 minutes from the largest city, Fethiye. This is truly heaven on earth at the foot of a mountain.

If you need to cool off, there is a natural stone swimming pool or maybe you would like to have a massage – it’s all about winding down.

You might want to take a hike – that too is available here – anything from a 30 minute walking trail to one that can take all day – it’s all up to you.
