#17 - "Yarbasan Evleri"
A truly grand holiday house, a veritable mansion on three floors with six bedrooms, four bathrooms, two lounges, fine art on the walls, a big eat-in test-kitchen with a dining table for ten, five patios, its name-sake courtyard, a series of terraced gardens, an extended swimming-pool; all in all an airy, spacious residence with panoramic views, it can be accessed through two separate gates. The house is available for rental in its entirety by large families/groups, or as a b&b for individual holiday-makers as four separate apartments each with their own bathrooms, sharing common areas like kitchen, lounges, gardens, swimming pool. This sumptuous place, decorated luxuriously for comfort and eye-appeal with artisanal artifacts, fine-art paintings and quality furniture, offers holiday-makers a total environment both for communal activities and private pursuits. The state-of-the-art kitchen is ready to be used for self-catering, while Erenler Sofrasi, our prize-winning restaurant with its health-conscious Aegean cuisine is only one minute walk down a stone-paved road. Each of its rooms and outdoor patios/courtyards look out at timeless views of both sea and mountain, while its gardens and swimming-pool deck seem to be floating on top of the magical landscape and its eternal coastline. The accommodation is as follows: Two self-contained flats with their en-suite bathrooms are on the top floor. One of the flats has two bedrooms, the other a suite-bedroom with a sitting area and its own terrace. The two flats are separated by a large, sunny patio. The main floor has an entry foyer, a grand living room, a rec-room with flat-screen TV, the large kitchen/dining room, a courtyard for al fresco dining, and off to one side behind its own entryway, a large bedroom with en-suite bathroom. The lower level offers a garden flat, accessed by its own gate and stone pathways, with two bedrooms and a full bathroom. Between it and the main house are the various green areas, including a herb garden, and the sizeable deck with its big swimming-pool. A vacation in this house, either as part of a large group occupying it as a whole, or as guest in a section of it, is truly something to cherish and remember for years to come; and hopefully to return.
