Proprietor Emily Vickers, out for a walk, rescued us after the dolmus from Ayvacik dropped us at the bus shelter in Assos and the only living things around were some wild turkeys, chickens, and some very traditional-looking Turkish men having a conversation. We had no idea which direction to head and she offered to guide us to her place to get our bearings. We ended up staying there and it was the best stay of our two week European vacation -- for these reasons: centuries old but modern, squeaky clean, gorgeous setting/view, cattle and sheep grazing just outside our window, 6th century ruins a five minute walk away, excellent restaurants nearby, off the beaten path with very few tourists. Emily is a great interpreter of Turkish culture and as other reviewers have noted, serves a great breakfast and afternoon tea. Highly recommend, especially if you're looking for something "different".
