Quiet and relaxing
Only problem is a car is necessary to really get around
I will always start missing Alacati as soon as I leave it.
the activity takes place in every 2 weeks on saturdays in the place called AGRILIA. You dont have to dance Tango so as to join but I believe is a nice atmospghere to share the rythm. The place is also known for its cakes and pastries in the daytime well as good dishes at the nigt time. The place used to be a barn before its redecoration by its...more

Moved this year to the edge of town but still only a ten minute walk at most into the centre.Dolmuses also start from here but you can get them to Ilica and Cesme from outside the municipality building, up past the windmills, cross the road and slightly to the left.Cost to Cesme this year 2007 is 2.25 Ytl.more

Plenty of coaches go to Cesme from the airport.Below is the local bus company Cesme Seyahat no. although another 6 go there.Regular buses from Izmir to...more
If you somehow end up in Cesme (where there are busses from Izmir to Cesme each half an hour) you can or lets say you should rent a car or a motorbike to move around. There are also some mini busses serving between ilica cesme and alacati but these would not really help you discover the beauties around.The place I rent the motorbike called éblue...more
The locals are generally very laid back people who enjoys life better than many city people.
They don't rush things,they cook mainly vegetarian food,enjoy wine,intellectual conversations..
The bold guy and the one with glasses owns a very interesting tango bar..And they do dance well..
In alacati you will realise wind mills. These are huge mills creating electricty from the wind power. It might be interesting visit to touch the mills and to hear the wind turning the mills around. For me it was an exciting experience.
