Welcome to the Kas-Antalya Community, Turkey
Kas is situated on the Mediteranean coast of Turkey and enjoys hot summers and mild winters. The geography ranges from tranquil stony beaches and coves around the coast to 2500m peaks and plateaus half an hour inland. The small town of Kas has retained its rustic charm whilst still catering for the demands of the adventurous European tourist. Popular sports include kayaking, sub-aqua diving and paragliding.
My wife, Juliet, and I moved here at the end of 2004 and had a house built in a valley 20 minutes away from Kas. We wanted a change of lifestyle in a warm climate with good food and friendly folk and also to indulge in a bit of off road riding. Kas ticked all the boxes.
The following pictures illustrate the variety of scenery and riding available in the Kas area;
We are not a busıness but like to meet fellow travellers on both two wheels and four. We can offer secure parking and comfortable accommodation wıth hot showers. Juliet is also an excellent cook. You will need to be dog friendly, however. We have seven of the blighters, six of which were rescued from fairly miserable circumstances. Should you require information about the area or help / a rideout when you are in the area then please contact us through the Community system.
