What you'll do

I will meet you at the pier when you land our island. We will walk for 10 min to our house which is at the top of the island. When we arrived the house, we will start with a nice Turkish traditional breakfast. Eggs are fresh from my nextdoor neighbours' chickens and jams are homemade. After the breakfast, we will go for a nice walk in the hidden places of the island so that you can see our lovely forests. This is the time of wild strawberries on the island, we can take our basket with us and collect some strawberries. Autumn is the best time of year on Princes Islands, because it's calm and quiet with fresh air, a nice walk away from the crowded city. The weather is still very nice around 18-19 degrees and we can still have time in the garden because we also have a winter garden. After the walk, we will come back to the house to cook the lunch, if you like you can experience to cook the things we collect from our marvellous nature. If we are lucky enough, we may find some mushrooms or wild asparagus from the woods. If there are children in the group, they can fly our kite because it's always nice windy infront of our house. Here at our little island, you will have the chance to feel the spirit of Istanbul full of nature and history.

I’m a nature lover cook living on an island of Istanbul where you can enjoy unique tastes just by the stunning view and history. If you like to know about me more, please check my instagram profile @princesislandistanbul I love to cook but my main specialty is to cook with the vegetables from our own garden and the wild herbs which I collect from our island. I studied American literature at the university and Management of Performing Arts as a second degree. I worked as a producer for ten years and take place in the team of big stage shows. By the time I got 35 years old, I had the feeling that I can 't live without nature and moved to Proti Island. I've got certificates from Edinburgh Botanic Garden and Culinary Arts Academy.

Where you'll be

Kınalıada (Proti Island) is one of the Princess Islands of Istanbul. It's very green with pine forests and has very nice beaches. It's only 1 hour from the European side and 30 min from the Asian side. Vehicles are not allowed to the islands, you should take the boat. It's just marvellous to be away from traffic and its pollution. You can hear the birds singing. Our house is at the top of the island just across the Hristos Monastry built in 831.

More tips

I have a dog named Luna. She is a 7 years old labrador. She is very friendly, I'm sure you'll like her but if you're alergic to dogs or if you're afraid, please let me know and she won't join us. If you like to change any part of the programme, feel free to ask, I can tailor the experience for you
