“Ghost Visit is amazing!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 4, 2013

i got tearful because its hard to believe that people lived in this village and had to leave!

Look inside the old church. Its fabulous! The details are stunning!

The little village of KayaKoy is so cute! Tradition at its best! Proper sights of Turkey

“Interesting deserted Greek village”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 1, 2013

Interesting deserted Greek village, where the Greek residents needed to leave as a result of a political change within Turkey in the early 1920's. Exceptional restaurant, Levissi Garden, with exceptional wine cellar, at the base of the village.

Wow, what a site, this ghost town on the side of a mountain, old Greek Ruins to walk around, totally stunning. You could spend the day there just imagining what these buildings used to hold!
