The pansiyon is in a good position overlooking the orchard and further on to the beautiful mountains. It has a large balcony where you can sit and eat and look at the view. The home cooked food is very good and was easily able to be adapted to our requirements. The rooms are very small and full of beds. They are carpeted. There is very little room to put luggage or to move around. The shower is over the toilet so things get wet. The shower is just a trickle most of the time and it is very hard to get a reasonable or constant temperature. The toilet was leaking but this was fixed.
We came to Camardi to do some fly fishing and stayed at Oz Safak Pension. What a lovely stay, gorgeous food cooked by Basar’s mother and comfortable and clean surroundings. Basar couldn’t have been more friendly and helpful. Great place for trekking, bird watching, fishing and skiing. A couple of interesting ruins in the area, a gorgeous 10c monastery and an underground city, no tourists, heaven!
We unfortunately stayed only one night and hiked through the canyon in Aladaglar. Basar was a very helpful host, who knew the area&hiking roads quite well and gave us very usefull tips. He even helped us via phone when we were lost in the mountains. The view from the pension is perfect, we could see the moonrise over the Aladaglar and have a beautiful evening in a friendly atmosphere. Also an interesting destination for birdwatching and deepsnow skiing in the winter. We are looking forward to come back and have a good starting point for several day tours.
Basar is a great host at this beautiful pension right under the mountains. He made a terrific solo hike possible - with equipment, a map and plenty of answers. The food is delicious. The view magnificent. Top place with great company - you couldn't ask for more!
Oz Safak is my favorite place to visit in Central Turkey. I have worked and traveled throughout the area and this place is hard to beat! With excellent views, delicious homemade food, and easy access to the mountains I highly recommend this spot. Başar is an excellent and honest owner.
