We came to Alaçatı for some relaxation after busy days of tours in other parts of the country. It is a beautiful village, mainly filled with Turkish vacationers from Istanbul and Izmir. The hotel is close to the center of the old part of town; complete with lovely old stone house and quiet garden. The owner, Zenep, oversees a staff that was truly gracious, tending to our every need with a smile. The afternoon tea and cakes are first-rate, and the staff did a wonderful job recommending restaurants, beaches, and wineries to explore during our stay. Alaçatı is not inexpensive compared to other parts of Turkey, but the Taş Otel exceeded our high expectations for service and value. I heartily recommend it!
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Tas Otel has been opened in 2001 as the first small hotel by ZeynepOzis who was one of the pioneers of "protective tourism" implemented successfully in Alacati. Ms. Ozis has questioned the 'mission, vision, strategy and action plan' steps that she has learned in professional life in line with her expectations and the answer she found was to be able to live and work away from the big cities, together with people and animals, doing physical exercise and having a balanced life and Tas Hotel, which was also her dream when she was young, came into being.Tas Otel is a century old Greek house with a swimming pool and peaceful green garden and it has been awarded as one of the best 20 small European hotels by the British Sunday Times. The hotel has an olive grove of 200 olive trees and each year olive harvesting is done together with the guests. The harvested olives are processed and served. Delicious Alacati cake with lemon is served with the five o'clock tea made with the Cesme lemons and in the winter the fireplace and the books are waiting for the guests. ... more less
