A nice village, preserved, from greek residents before migration. No entrance fee. No vehicles in the village due to road condition but there is a parking lot before the village. Cell phones are not operating well, almıst no 4G signal or wifi, no pool, no swimming,…. Quiet, cool, old herştage but modern touch (coffee, beer, ..). Explore yourself and / or the one you love!

While touring the ancient cities of Priene, Miletus and Didyma, we also visited the vliiage of Doganbey. Not only the beautiful view to the Maeandros Delta, but also the well preserved old village with its typical houses and paved, narrow roads is enchanting. The village is just on the border to the Davutlar National Park. It's definitely worthwile to include it in your plans, if you visit the area

Well worth a visit this old Greek village tucked away in the Dileck national park ,not easy to get to without a car. Up until 1924 this village was inhabited by Greek families then the exchange after the war came, the village is now being restored , it has an old mosque which was a Greek church ,a visitor centre showing the wild life in the area, a recently opened cay house constructed in the old style of the area with views across the village. great walking area there is a walk from here to the national park but it is 15 kms and getting back to the start point could be a problem. The scenery is great photographers dream. Going towards Karen there are fish restaurants the first on you come to on the left as you drive in my opinion is the best.

This village is an ancient village known as Domatia. The history goes back to very ancient times. Greek villagers have placed in this village. But they have left in 1924 due to population excange treaty between Greece and Turkey. The newcomers Turkish people coming from Greece have ben placed in this village. But they could not used to hard geografhical atmosphere and moved down to seashore. The houses left to their destiny till 80 ies. The intelkectual people the foreign arcitects discovered this willage and restored some of these houses and started living in this peaceful and calm village . There is a river between the two sides of the village.

Hired a car and explored the area for the first time in eight years of holidaying in Turkey. There is parking at the start of the village and a rough road leads to a small, welcoming taverna where you get views across the valley. The village is a mixture of abandoned, refurbished and new dwellings and should be explored on foot.

We came to Eski Doğanbey Köyü by dolmus from Kusadasi via Soke and I was glad we made the effort as we also visited Priene. Some of the houses in this old Greek village are abandoned and derelict but many have been sympathetically restored by new owners, however, it is not deserted as in the case of the much larger "ghost village" of Kayakoy on the Mediterranean coast and does not have that same atmospheric feel.
Limited options for something to eat, the small cafe offered a welcome break after exploring for a couple of hours and waiting for the dolmus which we had arranged to pick us up in the car park.

Having been to the local fish restraunts on the beach just up the road thought that I would spend some time here and it is such a charming place with all the history that surrounds its past I was looking for the ghost village as its also called having been abandoned in the past ,now that its been done up in some areas just adds to the charm the views are stunning and you can see the greek look of the old buildings and in the area around .It has a small café there so that you can get a drink or just take in the views.
