Chris and Susan Salmon are the most charming, attentive and talented host and hostess you can ever expect to meet. We spent 1 week and 1 day at this extraordinary hideaway created and operated by Chris and Susan and could not have asked for anything better. The gourmet meals prepared by Susan, the Roman styled infinity pool and landscaped grounds... More

Twelve months ago I wrote that I couldn't imagine not returning to the escape (Efes in hand!). Well, sure enough, I recently found myself lounging away the days in this glorious retreat. It is as if time has stood still, with Chris and Susan continuing to offer their guests their (and my) vision of the perfect holiday. The property is... More

From the moment you arrive and every moment after you are treated like treasured friends. The setting is lovely. The adult only and small number of rooms create an intimate ambiance. I cannot offer enough praise for the meals. Susan is a superb creative cook. It is well located to visit Dalyan ruins and river trips to see the turtles.... More

The Escape is just that... an amazing place just far enough away from civilisation to allow the perfect relaxing break. Susan and Chris are brilliant hosts who were attentive to our every need. Susan laid out the best breakfast and cooked the very best poached eggs ;) The mezze’s with fresh bread, locally grown fruit, veg and herbs were mouthwatering,... More

We had a marvellous stay at The Escape last year and our stay this year was just as fabulous. Susan and Chris are so welcoming, nothing is too much trouble for them. We stayed in the Turquoise room once again and can't recommend it too highly. The bed is the most comfortable of anywhere we have stayed and the view... More

We have just returned from a two week stay at "The Escape " which was our second visit in less than twelve months. This alone must be indicative of our wholehearted endorsement of the venue & the Proprietors, Susan & Chris ! Set in spectacular scenery of South West Turkey, The Escape is aptly named for it is just that... More

Just returned from another wonderful stay at The Escape. It was our 3rd visit and again everything was perfect. It is a real home from home and Chris and Susan make it feel like you are staying with friends. The service is so personal and it feels more like your own private villa than a hotel. The only disappointment is... More

Chris and Sue were the perfect hosts and even though we arrived at 2am, we were offered refreshments and received a very warm welcome on arrival. We were very impressed by the standard of our room and the facilities. What a delight waking up to the view of the mountains and valleys of the beautiful countryside. The architecture of the... More
