While traveling with a tour group of 14 people, we stayed two nights in this lovely hotel. It was, without a doubt, the most lovely setting on our 12-day tour. We were welcomed with a delicious drink on arrival, and blessed with a traditional Turkish send-off of water splashed across our path as we departed. The owner and staff were so friendly! Each room was delightfully decorated. Meals were beautifully served in the bright happy dining room. This little hotel was a real highlight in a trip that was truly memorable. I would definitely recommend Tafoni Evleri on all counts.
