“A hidden gem”
Reviewed September 23, 2012

We stayed here for 3 nights in September and what an amazing experience. It well deserves the rating here on tripadvisor.

The site is situated on the road between Selcuk and Sirince in the middle of a valley of olive trees. The rooms are clean, spacious and equipped with all the modern amenities but still give you a feeling that you truly "away". There is also a very nice infinity pool that looks out onto the valley. We had several breakfasts and dinners on the patio there as well, which consisted of some delicious home-cooked Turkish foods. The B&B owner was very helpful and made some recommendations about the local sites.

Overall, one of my favorite places that I've stayed anywhere. Would highly recommend Natureland to anyone heading out to this region.

We didn't sleep at this hotel but were invited by the owner to spend the evening there, use the amazing infinity pool and have the best meal we ate in all of Turkey. We wished we had booked a room there!

We stayed at Natureland Efes for 2 nights and loved it! It has a lovely location, in a middle of a hill, surrounded by lovely olive tress with a beautiful view of a medivial castle. The wooden house itself had a fairy-tale feel :) the rooms were big, spacious and well decorated. It had a small kichenette and a breakfast nook. The bathroom was big and very modern. It was the best rooms we stayed in our entire turkey trip. The facility also had a nice swimming pool - if you wanted to chill! The experience was made extra special by seval - the B&B owner! She made great food and was super helpful! This made for a great base to explore Ephesus, sirince and Izmir. Overall a great experience and highly recommended if you find yourself in Selcuk.
Note - the location is a bit out of the city - so you'll need a car to get here....

Room Tip: This place just has 2 rooms currently - so book fast :)

There has been no expence spared when furnishing this excellent pension. Think of your most house proud friend, and think how they would choose to furnish their own home. then you will know what quality you will find at Natureland Efes. there are no nearby shops, but it is on a dolmus route, If you have a car at your disposal look no further than Natureland for a place to stay. it is sheer luxury. We did not have a car, but staying at their other in town pension were given a lift there for evening meal and use of swimming pool. After seeing the excelent facilities at Natureland, next time I will definately book for there.

Room Tip: All rooms are excelent.

We spent two days in this charming hotel, run by a caring family, in a gorgeus surrounding. Just few minutes drive from Selcuk, out of the crowd and mess of the city, you can find this lovely hotel, totally surrounded by olive trees, with an astonishing view on the Castle. We cooled down in the beautiful pool after a day spent in visiting Ephesus and we enjoyed a great dinner too: very good Turkish cuisine for adults and the landlady was so kind to prepare perfect spaghettis for our kids, that were missing their homeland food. To our family, the best place of the entire vacation!

A fairy-tale chalet surrounded by an absolutely gorgeous ring of craggy mountains and Selcuk castle; the setting is breathtaking and peaceful. The room, small kitchen and bathroom were spacious, impeccably clean, with modern furnishings. We regretted that we were only booked for two nights; we could have stayed for weeks. The newly finished infinity pool is refreshing and when you are immersed in the water you see only the mountains all around you--magical. The owners are very friendly and welcoming and they go above and beyond to make their guests feel at home. And the food! We decided to eat dinner there for both of our days there and it was fabulous! We have not eaten better quality or more delicious food anywhere in our 12 days in Turkey. The breakfast is also fresh with nice variety, in addition to the traditional olives, cucumbers, tomatoes and fruit. Not to mention that it was so plentiful we could not finish all the food. All in all, we would love to go back and experience more of the magic of this place.

There was one problem for me, not so much for the rest of my family; the owners use a synthetic air-freshener pump in the rooms; and I have serious chemical allergies so could not sleep inside during the first night at all. The lady owner, Seval, was very nice about it and turned off the pump immediately and helped me out with a mattress put on the porch of the second floor (where they live). The mountain air is wonderfully clean outside and everything would have been fine except for the 30-some dogs their neighbor keeps who barked for most of the night. I do think that cleaning a room is enough and the synthetic fragrance is unnecessary and not healthy for anyone. The second night the air was much better inside the room and I was able to tolerate sleeping inside. In spite of this, we loved Natureland Efes! If you have environmental allergies, ask the owners ahead of time to turn off the fragrance and air out the room for a few days.

Accommodations are amazing. The service is amazing. The views are amazing. The food is amazing. And besides all of this, Sevaal and Andre are incredibly kind, generous and helpful. It was there care that made my trip to Selcuk, you guessed it, amazing !

I stayed two nights. My purpose of my trip was to visit Efes and it was realized very easily.

Thanks Sevaal and Andre!
