“Tranquility at The Escape's lovely location”

We had a marvellous stay at The Escape. And it was an Escape! It was so peaceful and quiet and the location is beautiful with wonderful views down the valley. It was just what was needed after a very busy period at work. We had the Turquoise Room which was perfect for us – an incredibly comfortable bed and the room is lovely and light - you can lie in bed and feast your eyes on the views over the pool and to the hills beyond. My husband is a very light sleeper and he was delighted with how soundly he slept. Susan and Chris couldn’t have been more attentive and helpful and we were thoroughly pampered! Great food too – we are vegetarians and Susan cooked us some excellent meals and the choice of food for breakfast is good and plentiful. We stayed for a few nights prior to going sailing and we were so glad we did. The luxury of The Escape really set us up for the rigours of spending time in a small yacht!

“Staying just one night worth every minute”

My wife and I stayed at the Escape after a long day in the sun visiting Ephesos. It turned out that we picked to best place for the rest we felt the need for. We did not find it in the first place because we forgot the sheet with the directions Susan and Chris had sent us at home. But after a quick call, Susan picked us up at the gas station nearby. Following her up the hill we noticed why the Escape is the right name. You can enjoy being away from all stress. Just lean back and give your eyes a relaxation from a great panoramic view.

I can highly recommend having dinner here. Susan will serve excellent dishes and you can be sure the right wine is served as well. If you are lucky, you'll get Susan's homemade cupcakes for desert.

Thanks to Susan and Chris for their hospitality

“You can check in any time you like but you will struggle to leave...!”
Reviewed 23 June 2013 for a stay in May 2013

The Escape is the imaginative vision made true of owners Chris & Susan who willingly share their dream home and offer a huge welcome to their guests. They have created a unique oasis of tranquility and serenity that rests on the edge of a traditional and rustic mountain village located within easy reach of the charming Turkish town of Gocek, which boasts casual bars, delightful shops and restaurants and an incredible marina dominated by sleek-lined sailing boats and mega-yachts.

The Escape offers unprecedented comfort and luxury for the discerning and inquisitive traveller. It is undeniably unpretentious, with quality and attention to detail at the core of its ethos. The Escape tells the story of the travels, experiences and passions of its owners through the interesting and beautiful artefacts they have collected and which they love to share.

Whilst at The Escape time has a tendancy to dissolve whilst you enjoy the warm sun, the awesome unspoilt views, the delicious food, specially selected organic wine and the convivial conversation with Chris & Susan. Their tales of fame and ambition will intrigue.........and, on a good night, Chris might even sing for you - a real treat!

The Escape is as much an experience of a calm elegant retreat as it is an invitation to stay at the mansion house of celebrity friends! Given the opportunity we would stay at The Escape until 'Hell Freezes Over'!

“The GREAT Escape”

We stayed at the escape for 10 nights in May and booked last minute by my dear husband as I'd been ill and he wanted me to get some much needed rest and sunshine. We couldn't have chosen a better place in the world. Chris and Susan (the owners) could not do enough to make sure that I was looked after they are the sweetest couple. My hubby still misses the breakfast omelet and the red wine!!! The views are wonderful all bedrooms are stunning with the softest bedding and fluffy towels heaven! We shall be back.

My wife and I enjoyed two excellent weeks at the escape, Chris and Susan are wonderful hosts who go the extra mile to ensure their guests have a holiday to remember. From the moment we arrived,very late in the evening, they surprised us with the offer of food and drink, much appreciated as it had been a long day, the whole holiday continued in the same way. The hotel was immacutely clean and the rest of the staff were friendly and efficient in their work. The gardens of the hotel have many interesting plants and shrubs and reflects the amount of thought that went into the construction of the hotel. The superb pool is always clean and immacutely kept and we enjoyed a pre breakfast swim everyday. The food was excellent, Susan is a great cook, the menu though limited in its choice, she was more than happy to accommodate individual tastes and we often prefered a hot shower, a relaxing drink and Susan's cooking to a trip to Gocek. They are a mind of information with recomendations of where we should visit and not, which on a two week holiday is essential. We arranged our hire car through them and the rates and level of service from their company was much better than other holidays.
We can only say if you want to visit Turkey and the Gocek area the THE ESCAPE is a must

“Fantastic”
Reviewed 3 June 2013 for a stay in May 2013

Arrived late at night,Chris and Susan the owners gave us a lovely welcome.
Then made us a drink and a bite to eat before bed.
This was the beginning of the most fantastic and relaxing holiday we have ever experienced.
We stayed for 14 nights but only ate out once, rest of time Susan made such lovely meals that
we did not need to move from The Escape.
We could not find fault with anything.
Chris and Susan are a lovely couple and now our friends.

“My mind keeps wondering............”
Reviewed 1 June 2013 for a stay in May 2013

We have been back home for a couple of weeks now....and my mind keeps wondering back to our wonderful stay the The Escape. We arrived late evening to a warm welcome from Chris and Susan, shown to our rooms and then met up with dear friends who had arrived earlier. A late supper, drinks and a catch up and off to our lovely poolside room and very comfy bed. Breakfast every morning was a treat, healthy and indulgent! Fresh breads and fruits, meats and cheeses, freshly squeezed orange juice, poached eggs (my favourite) and proper coffee. The infinity pool is wonderful, my husband spent a large part of every day floating around in it and i dipped in and out in between sunbathing and reading. Susan can cook thats for sure and Chris makes a very generous G&T, as well as a fantastic sort of Turkish Harvey Wallbanger. We went on a boat trip around the islands one day, it was beautiful, everyone enjoyed it On a trip to Fethiye market.we went from shy and nervous to bold haggling and got some great bargains, think ahead for upcoming birthdays as an excuse to buy more things! It takes vision,talent, hard work and determination to create a place like The Escape. Chris and Susan should be very proud of their creation. I could go on and on but you get the picture dont you?
