Staying at the Gollu home of Ali and Ayten was definitely one of the highlights of my recent trip to Turkey. The home stay offered a great balance of interaction and solitude; at times, visitors would keep to themselves to nap or reflect on the day, but during the evenings we (including the family) would all gather for dinner and tea. The food was excellent, and most of the ingredients came straight from the village. The hospitality and overall experience were outstanding.

See a way of life unchanged since biblical times, mix with the locals, and experience authentic Turkey with not a t-shirt nor another tourist in sight. Accommodation is basic and facilities are shared, as you join a family in their home. ... more less
