A fairy-tale chalet surrounded by an absolutely gorgeous ring of craggy mountains and Selcuk castle; the setting is breathtaking and peaceful. The room, small kitchen and bathroom were spacious, impeccably clean, with modern furnishings. We regretted that we were only booked for two nights; we could have stayed for weeks. The newly finished infinity pool is refreshing and when you are immersed in the water you see only the mountains all around you--magical. The owners are very friendly and welcoming and they go above and beyond to make their guests feel at home. And the food! We decided to eat dinner there for both of our days there and it was fabulous! We have not eaten better quality or more delicious food anywhere in our 12 days in Turkey. The breakfast is also fresh with nice variety, in addition to the traditional olives, cucumbers, tomatoes and fruit. Not to mention that it was so plentiful we could not finish all the food. All in all, we would love to go back and experience more of the magic of this place.
There was one problem for me, not so much for the rest of my family; the owners use a synthetic air-freshener pump in the rooms; and I have serious chemical allergies so could not sleep inside during the first night at all. The lady owner, Seval, was very nice about it and turned off the pump immediately and helped me out with a mattress put on the porch of the second floor (where they live). The mountain air is wonderfully clean outside and everything would have been fine except for the 30-some dogs their neighbor keeps who barked for most of the night. I do think that cleaning a room is enough and the synthetic fragrance is unnecessary and not healthy for anyone. The second night the air was much better inside the room and I was able to tolerate sleeping inside. In spite of this, we loved Natureland Efes! If you have environmental allergies, ask the owners ahead of time to turn off the fragrance and air out the room for a few days.
