In Düzce, tourism operator Davut Pirdal, who settled in his grandfather’s village to live in an isolated life during the corona virus (Covid-19) epidemic, offers accommodation for those who want to get away from crowded environments with the tree houses he established.
Tourism operator Davut Pirdal sold his house in the city center after the outbreak and decided to settle in the village of Harmankaya Esentepe, which is 33 kilometers away from Cumayeri district with an altitude of 1000 meters.
Pirdal, who started living in the “tree house” he built on the land left by his grandfather, brought his family and parents here as well.
Dealing with animal husbandry, Pirdal noticed that the interest in nature increased during the epidemic process.
Taking action by taking advantage of his professional experience, Pirdal established 10 bungalow houses in different parts of the land of approximately 15 decares, some of which are located on the edge of the Melen Stream, in order to offer its enthusiasts the opportunity to be in touch with nature.
The bungalow houses, which are of great interest to those who want to get away from crowded environments and spend time in nature, will continue to host nature lovers after the “complete closure” process.
Davut Pirdal said that after the outbreak started, he left the city life and settled in the village. Stating that he built a tree house on the land left by his grandfather in order to live an isolated life with his family in the first place, Pirdal said, “I came to the village, I started farming. I care for animals, I make a garden. I am far from the pandemic. I listen to myself here, calm and peaceful,” he said.
Stating that he was completely detached from the city life, Pirdal also expressed his satisfaction in evaluating the places left by his grandfather.
Stating that in the following period, people started to build bungalows due to the interest in nature due to the epidemic, Pirdal continued as follows: “I came in the first time, I started living by myself. Later I built a few more bungalows. I continue my profession here. People love nature. Especially in this process, the demand has increased. People want to escape from the crowd and be in a calm environment and with nature. They read books, spend time in the greenery. I know what people want because I have done this job before.
Pirdal added that they will continue to host those who want to move away from crowded environments and spend time in nature in bungalow houses after the complete closure process.
