Description

Nestled in vineyards, olive groves and fig orchards, the Yedi Bilgeler Hotel lies in picturesque surrounds, ideal for a relaxing getaway yet within reach of ancient wonders such as Ephesus.

Set amongst the vineyards of the Yedi Bilgeler Winery, the hotel is designed to offer the sense of a true wine estate stay, with rustic, stone-built cottages and buildings that blend sympathetically into the beautiful countryside of the area.

The 25 rooms and two suites are spread across these traditional-style stone buildings, their terracotta roofs contrasted against the verdant tones of the vineyards and offer a charming retreat after a day of sightseeing. The light, airy rooms have a simple, understated decor with fresh, white linens and homely decorative flourishes while air-conditioning, complimentary wifi and flat-screen TVs bring the rooms into the 21st century without detracting from their quaint charm.

With a pool and restaurant, the hotel is a pleasant spot to unwind and spend time when not exploring the historic sights of Ephesus and beyond. Homemade jams, olive oil pressed from the trees of the wine estate, herbs from the garden and delicious Turkish-Mediterranean dishes can be enjoyed on the terrace or balcony, accompanied by scenic views of the vineyards and lands that supply much of the produce. The menu is carefully crafted to complement the wines from the hotel’s winery, which together offer a flavour of this beautiful countryside. 

While offering all the components for a relaxing escape, the hotel is also well located for exploring the region’s fascinating historic and cultural sights. The captivating archaeological site of Ephesus with its famed Artemis Temple and well-preserved Roman remains stands 5 miles from the hotel while the Cave of the Seven Sleepers is a similar distance.

Offering a relaxing spot in which to unwind and enjoy the Turkish countryside and a base for exploring the ancient treasures of the region, Yedi Bigeler is a comfortable and charming hotel with much to recommend it.

Accommodation

With each room boasting a balcony or patio, the accommodation of Yedi Bigeler is filled with light and offers a calming escape after a day of walking through the hills or exploring historic sites. The Deluxe Rooms, Classic Suite Rooms and Suite Rooms all share the simple, elegant decor and hardwood floors with bare stone or whitewashed walls that is at once authentic and gracefully stylish and allows the beauty of the landscape to take centre-stage.

Facilities

Sitting on the terrace, feasting on a selection of local meats, cheeses, homegrown olives and wines from the vineyard offers a pure taste of the surrounding landscape. Enjoy homemade jams, exquisite pastries and Turkish delicacies crafted from locally sourced ingredients as you soak in the views over the rolling hills dotted with vineyards and terracotta rooftops. When temperatures soar, you can also take a dip in the refreshing outdoor pool.

Activities

With the beautifully preserved remains of Ephesus and the Artemis Temple just five miles away, the hotel is an excellent base for visiting this and other sites of historic, cultural and religious significance. While on the grounds of the hotel you could explore the wine cellars and learn about the art of wine production or stroll through the vineyards and olive groves.
