“Loved this place - owner Frank gives great recommendations too”

The good
The owner, Frank, was amazingly helpful. He has very informative information packs in each of the suites which direct you to good places to go and good places to go and eat. It helped make our trip. Life is too short to eat at bad restaurants and he sent us to great places well tailored to what would suit us. He and his (former chef) wife cooked us a lovely meal the first night we arrived (extra but totally worth it) which also gave us an insight into what living in Turkey was like.
The pool. It's salt water and looks like the pictures.
The location, near enough to the village and everything the region has to offer but up and away from it all too where it's slightly cooler and much more tranquil. A retreat.
The rooms. We booked out all the suites which suited us nicely. They each have mini kitchens for self catering if you want. Each was lovely in its own way so check out the pictures and see which one would suit you best. Frank used to be an antiques dealer so there are touches of his previous life in the buildings and the furniture. It was booked for the last few nights we wanted to stay in the area so we moved to us neighbor's house. In some ways this suited us even better as a family group and is just lovely but we wouldn't have missed staying at the suites either and meeting Frank and finding out where to go.

One consideration. Presumably you're not looking at this place if you want to be in the thick of it, but being up and away means you can't just wall to shops or the beach and I think would need a car. We had one.
