Turkish Hotel has its own organic farm

The five-star SENTIDO Perissia hotel, in the Turkish holiday region of Side, will be offering products from its own organic farm. Guests visiting any of the hotel's six restaurants will enjoy home-grown olives, tomatoes, grapes and figs, plus freshly-harvested pistachios and peanuts and other fresh produce.

Ahmet Turgan, General Manager of the hotel said: "On our 500 hectare farm we harvest organic apples and organic vegetables, we press our own olive oil and we produce wine from our organic grapes. All this effort is worth it because good catering is an important holiday decision-factor for many guests. 37 per cent of our guests are regular visitors.

"Fruit, vegetables, olives, olive oil, bread, jam and nuts are served with organic quality and without additives directly from the farm. Our cooks prepare many of the dishes directly in front of the guests."

The hotel's farm benefits from its location on the Turkish Mediterranean coast. The Turkish Riviera is known as the Garden of Turkey.

The slopes of the Taurus mountains ensure there is an ideal climate. Fruit, vegetables and cereals grow especially well on the fertile plains of the Mediterranean region. The farm of the hotelier's family is worked by 60 staff. Olive trees and grapevines grow on an area of 250 hectares, while the fruit trees and vegetable gardens cover the rest of thje 250 hectares. The olive oil and the wine is pressed and produced on the farm. Some 60 per cent of the wine offered in the hotel comes from its own vineyard.

The five-star SENTIDO Perissia is on a long, sandy beach and located some 3km away from the historic centre of Side.

Guests are able to choose from a buffet restaurant and five à-la-carte restaurants specialising in fish dishes, barbecue food, Turkish, Italian and Chinese dishes. Five bars, a Turkish café and three pools ensure a perfect holiday.

You'll be able to relax in the newly-renovated wellness centre, with sauna and Turkish bath. Sports enthusiasts are well-catered for, with water sports, tennis, volleyball and basketball plus aerobics and pool gymnastics.

Families with children are well-provided for as the hotel offers a children’s club with an outdoor play area, activities, cinema and a separate swimming pool for children.
