The Garden House in Selçuk
We enjoyed our stay in the Garden House in early May. Alison had prepared the house for us and arranged a car from the airport, making our arrival simple and easy. We toured, read and, ate at some very pleasant restaurants.
The Garden House rates five stars for service and beauty!
Thank you so much for taking the time to write a review, was a pleasure to have you all to stay, Warm wishes to you all,
Selcuk has all the necessary shopping facilities, banks, restaurants etc, and there are some very good restaurants in town, as well as some of the surrounding villages.
Every Saturday there is a beautiful local market selling fresh produce and anything that you could need during your stay.
Guests will be met by Alison, the property manager, who is fluent in both English and Turkish, she will be available throughout your stay to help with any queries, provide information and if needed to make travel/trip arrangements.
The main attractions are the historical sites locally at Ephesus, St John's basilica, Virgin Mary's House, Seven sleepers and Selcuk museum all only a few minutes drive away.
Selcuk is also an excellent base to visit some of the other major attractions in this part of Turkey including Aphrodisias, Miletus, Metropolis, Priene and Didyma. All within 1-2 hours drive. Further afield, to Pamukkale and Heirapolis are well worth visiting.
Fantastic yacht trips from Fethiye and Marmaris can be arranged also day trips to Samos, Patmos in the Greek Islands. Please enquire for further details and if you have any travel requirements.
Both Garden House and Goldsmiths house are 5 minutes walk from the centre of town and within walking distance from most of the ancient sites, most being virtually on the door step.
Kusadasi is a rather spoilt resort town, 18 kilometres from Selcuk, good for anyone wanting some lively night life, can be reached by local mini bus.
Day trips to Pamukkale, Hierapolis, Aphrodisias, Miletos, Priene, Didyma and many other amazing ancient sites can be reached by hire car or local bus.
How to get there:
Izmir Adnan Menderes international and domestic airport is 1 hour from Selcuk, has regular direct flights from all around Europe and the world. British Airways fly direct to Izmir from London. The domestic airport has regular connections all around Turkey.
Kusadasi has daily boats to Samos, Greek Island. Good day trip.
Selcuk has many local buses and mini buses travelling all around Turkey. A hire car is not essential but very nice. Enquire when booking for prices & airport transfers.
Special interest holidays
Selcuk is a perfect place to stay for people interested in culture, religion and walking, it is also perfect for people wanting a nice place to relax and enjoy the surrounding area.
Pamucak Beach is a virtually unspoilt golden sandy beach, one end there are several 5* hotels and a huge water park, Aqua Fantasy, the other end nothing, it is an extremely quiet beach. Pamucak beach is the closest to Selcuk, 8 km from town, it can be reached with the local minibus, dolmus, 10 minute journey.
To walk to Pamucak it takes approx one hour along a totally flat road, half the way has a nice walk route. By car there are many beautiful coves close by. Day boat trips from Kusadasi.
