“Beautiful landscape”
Reviewed 3 June 2014

Beautiful location, only problem is that you defiantly need a car to get to this place. Once there you can enjoy the very large and very clean rooms. Also, nice large pool. Since it is a small B&B it feels almost like a private pool. Only 2 rooms at this location.
Only downfall to this B&B is the owner she is not very helpful, and her staff cannot help as they do not speak any English. The owner couldn't provide us with information about how to get to different tourist sites or good places to eat.

This lovely home (owners live upstairs, 3 large rental rooms below) is on the road between busy Selçuk (Ephesus central) and the charming mountain town of Sirince. It is easy to locate, but there is really nothing nearby - driving is a necessity.

The mountain setting is gorgeous, with views of cliffs, forest, the distant castle. There is a spacious patio outside the rooms and covered outdoor tables. Our room had one king bed, a kitchenette, big closet, a sitting area with a sofa sleeper, and a modern bathroom with shower stall.

Unfortunately, the pool was being serviced during our stay in early May so we missed experiencing it, but it looks beautiful - large and deep and has an infinity wall! (It should be open by now). Breakfast was served in the al fresco dining area adjacent to the pool, and it was delicious -traditional Turkish style with lots of home made spreads, bread, olives, tomatoes, dukes, etc.

On our first night, we experienced a home-cooked typical Turkish dinner on this terrace (extra cost but very reasonable) and enjoyed excellent personal service, the place to ourselves, WONDERFUL mezzes, entree, dessert and good wine. The family and staff were very friendly and helpful throughout.

Our only complaints were a few burnt out light bulbs which I'm certain would have been replaced instantly if we had remembered to mention them!

This place is absolutely gorgeous, with fantastic views down the valley to Selcuk Castle. The owners and staff were very friendly and welcoming. The food was fantastic, and having dinner in the outdoor area watching the sun set over Selcuk Castle was magical. The pool is amazing and was the perfect place to relax after a hectic day exploring Ephesus. The rooms are nice and very clean. I would thoroughly recommend this place!

We spent two nights at the Natureland Efes Pension. The Pension was easy to find as it's on the only road to Sirence and there were obvious signs in Selçuk to find it. There are only 2 rooms and as the other room was empty it was very quiet. But I don't think guests next door would have added much if any sound. You get a bit of traffic on the road which thins out in the evening. But we could not hear even that from within the room.

The room has plenty of open space with lots of places to spread out your things. The bathroom had a nice large walk in shower.

The hotel has a small restaurant with traditional regional food. In addition to making a great breakfast that came with the room, the dinners were fantastic. We ate here for both nights of our stay. The meal started with a meza plate with 6 different dishes including stuffed peppers, eggplant, red pepper puree, thick mint yoghurt (i don't like yoghurt but i liked this), some sort of creamy russian salad, seaweed salad and of course the soft scrumptious turkish bread. This was followed by soup then the main course of salad, okra, rice pilaf and some sort of ground lamb croquets. Dessert was fresh sweet watermelon. The next night the chef made a traditonal baked stew. The meza plate was similar but this time the yoghurt had eggplant which was exceptionally good. The soup on the 2nd night was zucchini. Dessert the 2nd night was a flavorful poppy seed cake.

We ate dinner on the terrace with great views of the valley and St John's castle in the distance.

The infinity pool was a lot of fun. You can't beat the views and the water felt great after a hot day of site seeing.

Our host was very nice with helpful suggestions. They have two dogs who while friendly were not intrusive. Although the chef had limited english it was sufficient and we looked forward to her great food and warm smiles.

We spent 2 nights at Natureland Efes and wished we had booked for longer! It was the most perfect stay. We arrived later than expected and the keeper was waiting there to greet us. She didn't speak English very well but she spoke enough for us to communicate. Plus she was incredibly nice!! We managed to explain that we were vegan and managed to request a vegan breakfast. We met the owner later that evening as well and she was just as nice and clarified our request with us again.

The room was very large, spotless clean and equipped with all moderate amenities. The bathroom was so beautiful. There is also a small kitchenette in the room.

The hotel grounds are gorgeous! Since we were the only guests staying at the time, we had the pool all to ourselves! The infinity pool is beautiful and clean and offers breathtaking views. We also saw a turtle roaming around while relaxing by the pool.

The breakfast was plentiful and delicious. We enjoyed breakfast on the terrace every morning. We also decided to enjoy dinner one of the nights. We made a request for a vegan dinner and the hotel really came through for us. The meal was extravagant and delicious. We ordered wine with dinner as well and were extremely pleased with the value. In fact, in terms of quality, quantity and price, it was the best meal we had!

Book this place, you won't be disappointed!
