A stay at the Villa offers a true insight to Turkey, its culture and the local way of life. The centre of the village, with its local shops, traditional coffee houses, mosque, bakery and weekly market is the ideal place to observe the locals going about their daily routines.
Forget about the faster pace of living back home. Ciftlikkoy and the surrounding area offer a world of days gone by as the locals trot around on their donkeys, and the farmers plough their fields by horses.
Take a stroll through the heart of the village and you will be transferred back in time to narrow streets and crumbling old buildings that were originally built when the Greeks lived in Ciftlikkoy. As you walk by, you will witness traditional Turkish ladies sat chatting on their doorsteps, cleaning their carpets, hanging out the washing or maybe even milking a goat !
Local Cuisine: Ciftlikkoys village restaurants have a well deserved, good reputation, with visitors making the trip from Izmir for a meal all year round. They are a very short walk from the villa and offer a wide selection of international and local dishes at extremely low prices. For seafood lovers you can enjoy lobster, prawns, calamari, sea bream, sea bass, red mullet and various other catches for a fraction of European prices (fresh fish is usually priced by weight so you can check cost as you choose it from it's icy bed.). If fish doesn't appeal to your taste buds, low prices apply to all other dishes including Turkish and European menus. If you want to try something typically Turkish, wet your appetite by sampling the local plates of delicious meze, washed down with the national drink of Raki.
If you are only looking for a snack on the go Mehmet's kebabs are a must- opposite the harbour.
The Surrounding Area
If you require a little action, you can always take the regular minibuses into the nearby historical port of Cesme, or visit the various beaches and local attractions.
Cesme is only 6km away from the villa and is either a short car or dolmus journey, or a long walk along the coastal path from the villa. The town offers a wide selection of shops, restaurants, bars, banks, supermarkets and all that you could possibly require during your holiday.
Evening Entertainment, tends to revolve around dining out, spending several hours over a leisurely meal as done by the locals. Restaurants are family friendly as the Turkish people love children and the local children are awake until all hours, running about in the cool evening air. Should you wish to stay out late, Cesme has a small number of bars and the nightclubs are on the town outskirts.
Local minibus 'dolmus' to Cesme town passes the end of the street just 10metres away from the villa, the schedule depends on the season, but at least once an hour in winter to every 10 minutes in summer. The dolmus finishes in Cesme town bus station where buses or other dolmuses can take you all over the area, to Ilica, Alacati and beyond.
If you like to explore, and there is so much to see, car hire is recommended, we can put you in contact with a reliable local company.
The villa is in a traditional Turkish village, in a quiet street,. The area is very family oriented, people relax on their balconies and terraces, eat outside, have barbeques, so it is not a suitable place for late night parties or very noisy groups.
No smoking inside the villa and no pets.
