We went to Assos from Istanbul taking the village roads (from Bandırma to Biga, Can, Bayramic, Ayvacik) which I strongly suggest since they have amazing landscape and the road is adorable but narrow. We stopped many times to take pics or to collect some flowers :) While you are arriving to Assos from that path, it looks as though you are in a fairytale, arriving at Dracula's castle on the big old rock (AMAZING view).
I can safely say that Nar Konak is the BEST place at Assos. Assos village and village residents are a bit strange (good strange but strange) and its almost impossible to find what you need in the village.
Everything is so much better once you enter the Nar Konak premises. Food is amazing, garden is dreamy, environment is peaceful and people are so welcoming that you feel at home. Owners Gizem and Juan are very friendly and thoughtful. They do these little things that surprises and amazes you (writing tips and trick on the chalkboard or serving mosaic cake when you have a sweet crisis at night). We like to discover and visit historical places in our vacations and Gizem gave us so many tips and her advises and directions were perfect.
I think I can safely say that we had perfect 4 days here and we'll definitely keep in touch with Gizem and Juan and we will definitely visit them again :) I dont usually "strongly" suggest any hotels but for Nar Konak I STRONGLY suggest you to stay there.
