Guestbook comments from the owner
"Beautiful, cool stone house, with loads of room for 6 people. Even when it was baking hot outside it was cool inside, with the sole exception of the smallest room during the day, solved by turning the fan on! The lush green lawn and deep pool were lovely and reality added to the relaxed atmosphere. We were there to attend a wedding at the Solto hotel which is fab, but I much preferred staying in this. Large supermarket located conveniently five minutes away, as is a bus stop and taxi point. The village is a further five minutes walk, where there are loads if good restaurants and bars as well as shops which while touristy does not feel commercial and the whole place has a charming feel to it. (we went in Sept) the Saturday market was definitely worth a little exploring with its colourful veg and fruit displays. If you are lucky enough to visit, you must try the peaches and the green figs which are just lush! Another thing to try is the windsurfing, you will need to take a taxi over to the beach which is about 20tl (or you can bus it, but if there are a few if you then taxi is the same) which is awesome. Bear in mind winds seem to favour beginners in the afternoon rather than morning. I had an excellent 2hr lesson with Derya at active-surf.com but there are quite a few operators in the area. Ozlem is a star, she was super helpful arranging transport to and from the airport despite the difficult times and multiple trips, as well as being generally helpful with telling us about the area. It just made things really easy for us. Thanks so much for a great stay! I would definitely go back given the opportunity."
Met expectations: Yes – satisfied,
