Where are you? December 2013
Get a taste for the sun-blessed flavours of Turkey on a lush estate in the hills above Kumlubük Bay on the south-west coast. As well as shady gardens, an infinity pool and a spa, The Dionysos Estate has an organic farm which supplies fresh produce, including award-winning extra-virgin olive oil, to its three restaurants. Enter this month's Where Are You? competition and you could win a holiday for two here. The prize, worth more than £2,000, includes seven nights' accommodation for two, breakfast, flights from London or Manchester to Dalaman, transfers, a day at sea on a Gentleman's Boat with lunch provided, and dinner for two at the Sea Club restaurant. The holiday must be taken in May, June or October 2014 excluding school and public holidays

To enter, identify the location on page 186 and submit below or send in your entry to arrive by 31 December. Correct answers will be placed in a random prize-draw. All correct entries will also be included in the Grand Prize draw at the end of the current competition period (1 October 2013-30 September 2014).

Clue: When it comes to apiarian accommodation, this is the bee's knees. These mobile wooden units provide well-designed social housing for their industrious occupants: cool in the summer, cosy and warm during winter, and with colour-coded front doors that make returning home easy after a hard day's graft in the fields. The beehives played an important part in local folk art: they were often painted with Biblical imagery and then, after organised religion was banned, with imaginative rural scenes such as woodland animals turning the tables on their hunters. Luckily, the native bee, a grey-haired specimen, is protected. This country has long been a nation of beekeepers. In the 18th century, two men helped pioneer the scientific study of the insects (one went on to run the Empress Maria Theresa's beekeeping school in Vienna), and many of their findings are still of use today. If you like honey on your toast in the morning, you'll be spoilt for choice, with varieties including acacia and flower, linden and spruce. Then you can toast the bees with locally brewed honey beer, and book in a bio honey massage - just the treatment to feel like a queen bee yourself. Where are you?

My answer: Slovenia

http://www.slovenia.si/visit/trails/beekeeping-in-slovenia/
Slovenia is the only European Union Member State to have protected its native bee, the Carniolan bee (Apis mellifera carnica.)

This breed of bee is regarded as the second most widespread bee breed in the world. For this reason special attention is devoted to preserving and cultivating the pure Carniolan bee, which is also regarded as part of the natural and cultural heritage of Slovenia.

The art of painting beehive panels
Another special feature of Slovenian beekeeping that has gained international recognition is in the area of folk art – this being the art of painting beehive panels, something not known anywhere else in the world. The beginnings of this folk art can be traced back to the middle of the 18th century.

Slovenia – homeland of famous beekeepers
Historically, the Slovenians have also accounted for a series of famous men who established the professional foundations of beekeeping. In the 18th century, when Austrian Empress Maria Theresa founded a beekeeping school in Vienna, the first teacher of beekeeping at this school was the Slovenian Anton Janša (1734-1773). He was famed as a great theorist and practitioner in beekeeping.

Slovenian honey – a protected trademark
Slovenian beekeepers can also boast a relatively rich selection of different honeys (flower honey, forest honey, acacia honey, linden honey, spruce honey).
