We travelled as a group of 8 friends and only had two nights here. Easily could have stayed for a few more nights simply to enjoy the accommodation and see more of the local area in a casual fashion.
The staff were a delight from the moment we arrived until we left. Always smiling and helpful, even when moving luggage around, which is saying a lot considering the geographical layout of this hotel, or preparing an early breakfast because of early departures.
The complex consists of many buildings on various levels high above the village of Sirince. There are some hotel style rooms above the main building and restaurant, and then there are many buildings which are old homes restored. We stayed in a Tower House which had five bedrooms (four of which we had booked). Most of these rooms were huge including sitting areas and some had balconies, while one room was a large size room for Turkey hotel room standards. All bathrooms were large.
The Tower House also had a large common area which had a fully equipped kitchen, large table and lounge chairs for everyone to use.
One night we had a sing a long in the common room with the aide of an ipod, and our guide with his guitar. A great night, but so relaxing as well, just like being at home!
Every room was individually decorated with its own character.
This was one of the few places where we could have laundry done and at a reasonable rate.
There is a pool, which even at the end of summer was a VERY brisk temperature, but some of our friends did manage to stay in and enjoy their swim during an afternoon of relaxtion. Personally I enjoyed sitting on a sun lounge under the trees around the pool and being amazed by the view.
There are a collection of animals - donkey, ducks, chickens, horses,throught the grounds.
Breakfast was a walk past the top of the accommodations under a timber terrace covered with vines overlooking the valley below. It was a delight to start each day with breakfast here, with all the home made produce including the fresh orange and grape juices. (The bees are also big fans of breakfast).
We did eat in the restaurant one evening for a birthday day for one of our friends, and everyone was very impressed with their meal.
From Sirince we visited Permagon and Efeseus and would have loved a few more days to visit more local sights.
We could walk down to the village in about 10 minutes via a stone path that was reasonably steep, but an enjoyable walk with the views on the way. We are all in our early 50's and I would suggest that this walk may not be ideal for older folk depending on their level of fitness.
When choosing our accomodation for this trip we made a concious effort to choose boutique options where ever possible and this was a standout, which once we arrived even surpassed our hopes.We all wished we could have stayed here longer just to chill and enjoy the ambience.
