  • Winter Stay

    on 28/12/2023

    We stayed in December, and luckily the weather was good, 19’c. The drive from the airport is less than an hour. The house is gated, and there’s a small drive so you park off road. Once there we sat on the terrace and were served a welcomed tea, homemade borek pastry, & freshly picked satsumas.
    The fire was lit inside which made it especially welcoming.
    The housekeeper made superb Turkish breakfasts, such a treat. We enjoyed a lovely lunch at Gümüşlük by the sea and a few of the group paddled. We ordered a kebab to be delivered one evening.
    For cooking the kitchen is well equipped and has things like spices, vinegars and oils which is a great help.
    The house and gardens are stunning, beds very comfortable and lots of books if you lack reading material. If you’re lucky you’ll catch lovely sunsets, although I believe these are more central in summertime.
