Yedi Bilgeler was a highlight of our two week trip through Turkey. The location is breathtaking, with views of the vineyard and countryside behind it.
The hotel itself is lovely...it has a very welcoming feel with its stone walls, verandas and simple, fresh decor. But the real highlight is the staff. Aybeck is a truly wonderful host. He personally welcomed us as we arrived, got us settled into our rooms, gave us a tour of the winery and spent a significant amount of time chatting with us about Turkish history, his wines and the area we were touring (he's a tour guide by training). Hussein was also charming and very helpful during our stay.
The food was upscale Turkish and the wine is award winningly delicious....definitely have a dinner on the veranda!
To get there, we flew into the airport at Izmir, rented a car (we recommend Zenith car rental) and drove to the vineyard. It was a bit difficult to find, so be sure to ask for directions in advance (off 550 when you enter Camlick, it is the right toward Kusadasi near two gas stations. Veer to left after railroad tracks and it's on the left). There is a train nearby, so you could also take that, however it seemed relatively difficult to get around the region without a car.
The visit was great for two friends traveling together, but would also be wonderful for a romantic getaway for a couple. It was truly a gem.
