I jet got back from my trip to Lake Bafa and what made it such a memorable experience was my stay in the Agora Pension. I was made to feel a part of the family. The cooking is superlative - and I KNOW Turkish cooking after travelling in the country for many years. The staff were welcoming and very helpful... More

We received a very warm welcome at this unusual pension. We stayed in February, and in view of possible weather conditions and previous chilly hotel accommodation in different locations,I selected this pension on the basis of its central heating. I had checked out websites but, as is my habit, called to confirm details. Everything was as promised. The small wooden... More

We stayed in Agora for the past 2 nights and had a look at the other places by the lake and decided we were in the most central and atmospheric in the village. It's an earthy place at the end of a 9km drive by the side of the lake. The village of Kapikiri is in the middle of the... More

This is a simple, family-run guesthouse/hotel in a rural village beside Lake Bafa. Open all year. Rooms are simple, en-suite, comfortable enough. Communal areas, inside and outside, are charming and the 'atmosphere' equally so. An ideal base for hiking/walking, as well as visiting the great classical sites of Miletus, Didima etc. The food is exceptionally good traditional Turkish fare. Overall,... More

We were recommended Agora by a travel writer friend. Set in a very Turkish village amidst the historic and very accessible sites and v close to the beautiful Bafa lake. Mitat and his family are wonderful and informative hosts and the food is mainly home produce and sooo good. Looking at a couple of negative reviews, I can only think... More

We stayed in this place after a long day of 9 kilometres long hiking experience and all we needed was a decent sleep. Well, hard to say that we had what we needed... But to be fair, Agora looked like the only feasible option at this part of the country. The rooms are very small, beds not confortable at all.... More

Following a stay with friends the previous year, I returned with my family this summer. This is always a concern, I had recommended it so highly, would they love it as much as I did? Well, luckily they did. Even without Mithat (still in the army), the staff were really friendly and helpful, especially once we tought Kerim to drink... More

One of the strangest places we visited but kind of interesting- We felt that we had a glimpse of village life. The room was comfortable enough, breakfast above average, hosts helpful. The lake was stagnant this time of year but we had awesome ruins on the hillside completely to ourselves (and a stray horse). Be aware- aggressive scarf selling ladies.

Lake Bafa is pretty much in the middle of nowhere so you know in advance that this little pansiyon in a small working village is not going to be glitzy 5 star with all the trappings. But if you want spectacular scenery, good walking and total peace and quiet, this is the place to be. We stayed for 3nights at... More

We enjoyed this place immensely, though I can understand that some people would not. The Pansiyon itself is very nice. the rooms are scattered around amongst lovely gardens - ours was comfortable and clean, though pretty basic. The (essential) air conditioning was adequate, and the bathroom spacious and functional. The food was excellent, and quite varied. Lots of fresh local... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Agora Pansiyon is situated in the Kapikiri Village at the north side of Bafa Lake. Here away from the daily hectic of crowded tourist flow, you can enjoy the wonderful landscapes and views of Bafa Lake. As the sound of a rooster crowing wakes up the village, you can start the eventful day wholly rested after a comfortable night. Youwill receive a feeling of stillness and a feeling of being at home flows in you immediately. What can an authentic holiday be described perfectly better than a small but fine hotel run with dedication by the owner Orhan Serçin and his sons Mithat and Oktay. Orhan like to share his tips with his guests on the secret hiking resorts around the Bafa Lake gathered after many years. ... more   less
