The village welcomes us with its spectacular view. Everywhere is a lavender bush. Most of backyards and even on the doorstep of each house are full of lavender. The scent of lavender covers whole village. That, welcomes each traveller in Kuyucak village. The best season to visit this village is August, right before the harvest. Lavender gardens inspire photographers.

Not only lavender gardens, but people of this village are also welcoming here. All villagers are cheerful, kind and helpful; that values your trip to Kuyucak.

Rural developement in Kuyucak is also one of the topics that needs to be mentioned. Lavender, that grow up in arid climate, is used both in cosmetics and bee culturing. In wedding and engagement ceremonies, scent of a Kuyucak is catched by lavender all around the country. Environmental awareness has been worked up by production. It is common to use the topic "sustainable development" in daily conversations.

Kuyucak, pretty and colorful village of Isparta, is waiting for you with its wonderful scent and heavenly view of Burdur Lake.  You are invited to lose yourselves by violet like famous Turkish painter and poet Bedri Rahmi Eyüboğlu. Remember, he once wrote "all day, I worked on violet, I lost myself in violet."
