Eflatun Eco-Art Farm is situated in Çukurbağ Village, which is 500 metres high, between the ancient cities of Phellos and Antiphellos (Kaş), on the ancient Lycian road. The sea is reached by a 10 minute car ride. The most important cities of the Ancient World are reached with a short car ride and 10-15 minutes walk. In the east are Myra, Kekova, Kyneai and Hoyra. In the west, Patara, Letoon, Ksantos and Tlos. Eco Camp is in the middle of these historical area, in the valley of Düdenağzı, with a stunning backdrop and views of the Taurus Mountains (Phellos).
We welcome the day with yoga listening to the birds singing. Each day of the week will be full of different activities; you will enjoy the Mediterranean sea with boat excursions to antique Simena and Kekova, watch slide shows and discover mysterious Lycian towns during cultural trekking to these places. If you wish, you can hoe and water the vegetables, tomatoes, peppers, aubergines and etc which are just about to blossom in the garden of Eflatun. Kaş Eflatun Art Camp was served as a tribute to nature, by restoration of an old local house in the Çukurbağ village (at an altitude of 500 m.), 15-minute drive to Kaş. It will create a unique opportunity for you to have physical and mental relaxation and to turn back home with precious memories.

NOTE FOR VOLUNTEERS: We are happy to include you on our hiking, yoga, sea activities and art workshops on your time/day off (while this time you can discover Kas and the neighbouring sights). However during the times when we do not have guests we regret that these cannot always be possible. We remain at all times a working Eco Camp and therefore the general running and maintenance of the camp must always take priority. We all work as a team. Volunteers will be expected to assist us with farming, gardening, carpentry, building, painting, cleaning, helping in the house and kitchen etc. Normally we have a work schedule every day.
Please make sure your profile page is complete and has a photo of you. Don't forget to write about why you want to volunteer here.
