Villa Monte is in a peaceful location just a couple of minutes' walk, through a citrus grove, to the beautiful bay of Olympos. (Cirali is a delightful village - no high-rise, no cash-points, few cars, plenty of pomegranates, lovely people - a place where crime seems an impossibility.)
We booked our two week stay at Villa Monte via email, and were surprised to find that no deposit was required - a new experience for us! Our transfer from the airport, at very reasonable cost, was arranged for us by the proprietors.
Esin & Sinan are superb hosts whose aim is to please their guests: nothing is too much trouble.
Breakfast is a feast, and the evening meal (at very reasonable cost) is always delicious. On my birthday (they'd noted the date from my passport), I was presented with a delectable cake (replete with edible flowers), and was serenaded by our hosts, their talented chef and waitress.
On the day we left, the four of them stood in line to wave us farewell - a gesture typical of the personal service given, and one that made me feel that I'd stepped back in time to a gentler age - and one that I really did not want to leave!
