Sadly only stayed here for one night which was not enough. Everything about this place is wonderful. The owners were lovely as were the staff. The building was designed by the owner and the room we had opened up onto the pool which has bean bags, lounger and plants around it which instantly gives a calm peaceful feeling. The room was great, excellent bed and bathroom. The breakfast was served outside and was plentiful. Alacati itself is a very charming place with many of its original buildings around. There are lots of restaurants and plenty of great unique shops. A real treat, cant wait to revisit

It was constructed by certified engineer Batacar Baysal who made a surprise and gave his wife's name to the hotel(Çiğdem) and was decorated bytheir daughter-in-law, Gunel Baysal.Crocus FlowerCrocus flower, Colchium in Latin, is originally native to Eurasia. It is plant of woodlands ; blossoming in a variety of colors, standing out to strong winds with its fragile body, reminding us to endure and the power of existence. It has 59 species, 30 of which grow in Turkey. These flowers appear in the late winter often emerging in a colony when hardly a few plants blossom in the meantime. Flower color ranges from yellow, pink and blue, to a vast array of shades.Known as one of the most expensive spices of the world, Saffron is is obtained from the stigmas of of Crocus sativus. It was used to provide with nice odour for the baths by the ancient Grek and Roman. Crocuses have the late-winter/early spring bulbs. They are the first blossoms of spring and autumn. They have a short flowering period and after a two week process they end up with their buds. They survive until the next year by their bulbs storing the nutritives. These are the bulbs sold by the florists.
