fabulous flat in charming neighbourhood!
Okay, there is a hill, but we grew quite fond of it, because every day we felt we were coming home. Peter and Ozkan's apartment in the lovely area of Fener-Balat was a real treat. It had everything to make our stay as comfy as could be, we were immersed in a totally Turkish atmosphere, but everyone smiles and nods, there are children playing in the street, ladies sewing, street sellers, we would not have traded it for anything. After a day out in the hustle and bustle of beautiful Istanbul, the apartment was a welcome haven and there was so much to see within walking distance, mosques, markets, churches,little shops etc. The buses are easy to access and frequent, we had very few problems finding our way around. Peter and Ozkan are delightful and knowledgeable, everything was just as described, clean and obviously cared for. We are Canadians, in our 60's, this was the perfect place for us, it really felt like a home away from home, and we would recommend it without hesitation to anyone wanting a unique Turkish experience in an authentic setting.
Thank you very much, Peter and Ozkan, for making us feel so welcome in your beautiful home.
Janis and Rick
