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.
