About Hugh Pope
British writer, author of three books on Turkey, the Turkic World and the Middle East, director of communications & outreach at International Crisis Group (based in Brussels). I lived in Istanbul for 28 years. Father of three daughters and married to Dutch writer, coach and consultant Jessica JJ Lutz. We built Olympian Heights ourselves as our dream home and after 15 years we'd like to share it with like-minded spirits.
Hugh Pope purchased this house in 2005
Why Hugh Pope chose Olympos
Silence, apart from the frogs croaking in spring or the pulse of cicadas in high summer. Swimming in our unique, soft natural pool. Seclusion, since the nearest paved road is a mile (2km) away. Delicious village food, if you engage our housekeeper to cook for you. Sparkling days out on the water, when you charter a boat or join a group leaving from a nearby beach (Adrasan or Cirali). Classical antiquity, with many ancient and beautiful Lycian cities within range (Olympos 10 minutes, Phaselis 25 minutes, Myra 1 hour, Arykanda 1-1/2 hours, Termessos/Aspendos/Perge 2 hours, not to mention the fine museums in Antalya and Demre). Dinners on the beach. But above all, two acres all to yourself to enjoy in the midst of a lovely mountain park.
What makes this house unique
The natural pool, the seclusion, and being spoiled by our housekeeper with a wide menu of daily meals.
