Quaint pension in Selcuk vicinity

by BlackSheeper about Kirkinca Pansyion

This is a beautiful pension in a small Greek village named Sirince, about 10 minutes by bus to Selcuk. It is set in the hills, and therefore is surrounded by beautiful mountains. In the winters you can snuggle in the fireplace in the upper room with other guests and eat chestnuts, in the summers you can enjoy breakfast on the open patio. The service, food, and location is unbeatable! Its the perfect place to unwind after a day of exploring.

Sirince not Selcuk

by Tdiver about Nisanyan evleri hotel

Perched above the town this is a great place to get away from the madness of Kusadasi or the quieter Selcuk.The road up is unpaved so take care and there are no lights at night also it's narrow but you get the best views of the local area.Rooms are on the small side but the food,hospitality,general ambiance and views are more than enough to compensate. The views and the town will calm you down from nearby Kusadasi.

Disappointment in Sirince

by nicolaitan about Kirkince Evleri Hotel

The Kirkinca Evleri was recommended to us by one travel agent and confirmed by a second as well as receiving some decent reviews on the internet. We were fully aware that lodgings in the Ephesus area were of limited quality, yet were still very disappointed by this facility.

The staff was largely limited to Turkish ( our problem, not theirs ) but were kind and solicitous and did their best to be helpful.
Sadly, the facility itself was the letdown. There is a difference between words like spartan and basic versus words like rundown and in poor repair. The single lightbulb in the bedroom could not disguise the aged furniture in suboptimal condition. The incongruous pink plastic bathtub had not been assembled properly and " black stuff " was present at the non-apposed margins. The bathroom also suffered from having only a single light bulb and the single electric outlet was in the bathroom with none in the bedroom. There was no shower curtain - we were not too happy about that until we saw that the room next door had no shower head (image 5 )( which may explain why the occupants left early in the morning after their arrival ). As advertised, there was indeed plenty of hot water. The electric heater took the chill out of the room, I suppose.

The copious breakfast presented us included at least 15 small dishes of condiments, vegetables, and unidentified spicy things, supplementing a basket of very decent bread. An omelet for two was too spicy to be eaten ( which may be the closest we came to non-tourist Turkish food or may just have been too over-spiced ). Service, as always here, was gracious. Breakfast was served in an elevated room which contained the only television we saw - limited reception quality, just a few stations. The dining area itself could have used a thorough cleaning.

We had the opportunity to check out a few other facilities in Sirince and found most in similar states of disrepair. We took the opportunity to discuss the hotels with our guide who stated that the Kirkinca Evleri was among the best choices in Sirince. Many people on the internet recommend Sirince as the best choice for lodging in the Ephesus area - despite the kindness of the hosts, we cannot agree. We would stay in one of the seaside resorts in Kusadasi or even in Izmir. The hotel staff garner this facility one more star than it might otherwise deserve.

Beautiful historic holiday accommodation

by Erol21 about Honeysuckle House

We arrived in the beatiful mountain village of Sirince after visiting the ancient city of Ephesus. It was getting late so we looked for somewhere to stay in the village. We followed the signs for Hanimeli Pansiyon (Honeysuckle House) up the cobbled lanes and steps of the old village. The house was set in a beautiful position near the old church in a quiet peaceful part of the village. We were met by a very friendly Turkish couple who run the b&b called Erdem and Doursan. They couldn't have been nicer - a real Turkish welcome. They showed us the house which is 200 years old and has been restored with modern kitchen and bathroom facilities. There was no one else staying there that night so we chose the front double rooom which had a lovely view over the village and surrounding hills. The house has two double and one single. The house feels like a well looked after family home. The beds were new and comfortable and the linen new and clean. Erdem and Doursan made us Turkish tea and we sat out in the garden which was full of jasmine and honeysuckle. We spent the evening walking around the village which was beautiful. This house was a listed historic building and has loads of character and atmosphere. There are exposed wooden beams and wooden ceilings and all the doors and cupboards are carved from wood. Being up in the mountains meant it was cooler than down near the coast and we slept really well . It is very peaceful and completely quiet at night and waking up to the view of the mountains was spectacular.
The breakfast was a proper Turkish breakfast with the added novelty of the bread having just been baked in the village bakery.
It's very close to the historic site of Ephesus and the coast and yet has none of the over development of a tourist area. It has nice restaurants with wonderful views and cafes and some little shops and stalls. If we were to come back through here we would book beforehand.

Sirince

"Follow the leader !"


SIRINCE
A little village in the mountains and around 400 m. height.
How to come there?
From our hotel we took a dolmus to Kusadasi centre. There you take another dolmus in the direction of Selçuk. In Selçuk you left the dolmus and you take another to Sirince.
In Sirince you have each half hour a dolmus back to Selçuk.
It is so easy and cheap but most important : you spend a wonderful day in this charming little village with nice and friendly people.
Enjoy your trip!

It is also know for its traditional 19th century village houses, some of which have been converted into guest-houses. Wine is produced in this small hillside Turkish village which itself resembles an 'open-air museum'. Not to be missed are the handcrafts for sale in this village.

Trips from Bodrum

by scanos

I am staying in a resort near Bodrum and apart from Ephysus, I am considering some trips further afield. Can anyone make recommendations. I am even considering an internal flight to Goreme and staying 2-3 days overnight. Any recommendations are welcome.

Re: Trips from Bodrum

by balhannah

I don't know if you want to stay in Turkey or not, but I did a trip to the island of Kos which I thoroughly enjoyed. I signed up with a tour at the Bodrum wharf and it was lovely, good tour in my opinion. If you want to see about it, I have details and photos on my pages.

Re: Trips from Bodrum

by mikelisaanna

Goreme and Cappadocia is a great 3-day trip. Another good trip is to Pamukkale and Aphrodisias.

Hi,

Thanks to everyone- it looks like Goreme is not easy to get to from Bodrum

Re: Trips from Bodrum

by ruffen

Make your Epesos trip as a stay over and have a night in Sirince. It is 8 km up in the mountains from Selcuk (ca 2 km from Epesos). A greek village. Heaps of fruits there, and lots of 'bodegas'.
Sirince is NOT in vt-database, have a look at Selcuk pages here.

Pamukkale, the cotton castle. Continue from Selcuk/Epesos to Pamukkale and have a night there to.

Re: Trips from Bodrum

by Jawnuta

Goreme is a must. If flights are not available I strongly recommend overnight but. We used plane on the way there and bus on the way back. Both ways of transportation are equally comfortable, believe it or not.
Pammucale is also a must. There are 2 day trips with a night in Pammucale and second day in Ephesus.
If you decide on a car rental, drive south to Kas is fabulous.

10 day Turkey tour

by princess_guls

Hi
I am planning a 10 day Turkey tour at the end of may this Year.

My tentative itinerary is Istanbul (3 days), Ephesus + Pammukale (2 days), Oludeniz (3 days) and Cappadocia ( 2 days). Has anyone ever done that route. I would like to know the fastest and most comfortable ways to travel between the regions mentioned above.

Any further suggestions on the itinerary?

RE: 10 day Turkey tour

by DSwede

There are some regional airports near all of those areas, and that would be your fastest way. Turkey does not have a developed rail system, so it relies mostly on buses. They are cheap, leave most places on 30 minute / 1 hour intervals. However, they are slow. For example, Istanbul to Cappadocia is ~12 hours on a bus. For those places on the west coast like Ephesus and Pammukale, you can take a ferry from Istanbul and cover a portion of the distance, but a bus would be needed for the rest.

A budget packpacker might take buses over night to arrive in the morning. It is the most economical, but it is not the most comfortable. Otherwise, you will have to buck up and buy a few domestic flights.

RE: 10 day Turkey tour

by billy_05

Hi,

The public bus transportation in Turkey very confortable and they have 2-3 breaks on the way for meal and your needs. Alternative domestic flight tickets are not expencive in Turkey but airport & hotel transfers takes many times and I can offer you bus trips for all your ways. Also the best option is as below:

day 1 = arrive in istanbul
day 2 = istanbul city tour
day 3 = free day or half day bosphorus boat cruise then overnight bus to Kusadasi or flight to Izmir and transfer or public bus to kusadasi.
day 4 = ephesus tour
day 5 = pamukkale tour and public bus to fethiye
day 6 = explore oludeniz
day 7 = free day an overnight bus to cappadocia
day 8 = cappadocia tour
day 9 = cappadoci tour overnight bus to istanbul
day 10 = flight back home

Enjoy your Turkey trip
Cheers

by Istanbul27

Hello, you route can be better. I made a similar trip this summer and can share my experiences with you. İf you have time we may talk on msn, eurasia79@hotmail.com

RE: 10 day Turkey tour

by cpeng

I am making a 10-day trip this June/July. A comment on the plan is that it is better to travel western Turkey clockwise, i.e. Istanbul->Cappadocia->Ephesus,Pammukale, Oludeniz->Istanbul. I noticed that you might have 3 overnight transfer within 10 days. Is it too often?

My plan is
Istanbul->(overnight)Cappadocia ->(overnight)Pammukale (have a relex spa in the hot spring after a overnight transfer)->selcuk area -> Pergamon -> Bursa ->Istanbul

RE: RE: 10 day Turkey tour

by princess_guls

Hi Billy

Thanks for the inputs. Could you let me know about bus routes (travel time and approx cost) between:

1. Istanbul and Sirince
2. Sirince and Oludeniz
3. Oludeniz and Goreme

Any recommendations for hotels/pensions uoto 40 Euros for a double in these places?

Kusadasi

by Cichlide

Hi all,

We just booked a last minute vacation to Kusadasi. We will arrive there 11th of may and stay there for 14 days.
Anybody who has some last quick tips for us please post them here

Thanks
Rudy

Re: Kusadasi

by Bregman

Don't miss a visit to Effes. You can do it by bus. Take the bus to Selcuk.

Re: Kusadasi

by Tavsan

Just watch the prices in the markets because they can be a little high. Great restaurants though. Make an afternoon trip to Efes (Ephesus) while you are there. Go hang out downtown at night, it is great. And since it is still May you might want to take a light jacket or sweatshirt for cool evenings.

Re: Re: Kusadasi

by buket

Hi,
14 days is too much time for Kusadasi. But there are a lot of historical places around. So if you like antique cities don’t just stay in Kusadasi, try to visit another places such as Ephesus, Didiyma, Miletos, Priene, Izmir etc. My family runs a pension in Selcuk. Selcuk is very close to Kusadasi. Antique city Ephesus is between Kusadasi and Selcuk(2kms. To selcuk 20kms to Kusadasi). It will take your day to visit Ephesus ruins because Ephesus is one one of the most preserved antique city. There’s Virgin Mary’s house on the hill if you are interested in. Also in another hill near Selcuk there’s a village called Sirince which is famous with it’s rustic buildings, view and wines. You can have more information about Selcuk-Ephesus and about our pension from web page www.deryapension.com it helps you about what to do. Have a nice trip, enjoy it…
