OBERURSEL, Germany, May 9, 2011 - The SENTIDO Perissia hotel, located in the Turkish holiday region of
Side, is to offer products from its own farm. Guests who visit any of the six
restaurants of the hotel are spoiled for choice with aromatic home-grown
olives, tomatoes, grapes and figs as well as freshly-harvested pistachios and
peanuts all on offer among other fresh produce.
Ahmet Turgan, General Manager of the five-star 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."
