4 of us stayed Grapevine House in June and loved it (once we had got used to the silence!). The house is traditionally furnished and decorated and the large garden (full of fig, apricot and pomegranate trees as well as the grapevines) is perfect for hiding away with a good book. As previous reviewers have said, Omar is an excellent guide to the local area and the breakfasts on the terrace are superb.
The village itself is almost invisible from the house but once you go through the garden gate and down the path you realise how pretty it is, with many locally run restaurants serving excellent food. We seemed to be the only tourists in the village in the evenings and we had plenty of opportunities to talk with the friendly local people. Ephesus is a 10min drive away and is well worth the visit- I would also recommend paying the extra charge to look around the village houses within the site, which have some incredible frescoes and mosaics. There are also plenty of other 'lesser' historical sites in the area worth exploring.More
