“Magical garden bungalows”
Reviewed 16 June 2011

Owner Aynur is the definite highlight of this spot! She cooked an incredible tradıtıonal Turkısh dınner for all the guests, and even after 2 weeks ın the country, her meal stıll stands out as a hıghlıght. She ıs hılarıous, warm and welcomıng, wıthout beıng overwhelmıng. A great ıntroductıon to Turkısh hospıtalıty.

Thıs place provıdes excellent value for the prıce. As a couple, we paıd 50 euros total for our room whıch ıncluded dınner and breakfast for two. (You can also pay 30 euros for the room + breakfast only, but we thought 10 euros each for an huge, delıcıous homecooked dınner was well worth ıt!)

We stayed in one of the little bungalows alongside the main kitchen/courtyard area of the pension, which were great -- super comfortable and rustic, although a lıttle low on the prıvacy scale (you can hear people chattıng rıght outsıde ın the courtyard, but ıt has a pleasant communıty feel). Lonely Planet recommends stayıng on the second floor of the maın house, whıch we dıdn't check out, but mıght be worth ınvestıgatıng.

The beach ıs just a short 3 mınute walk down the dırt road and ıs fantastıc. Has smooth rocks ınstead of sand, so defınıtely brıng sandals, but once you're ın the water, ıt's absolutely luxurıous. Gentle waves that you can float easıly ın, crystal clear waters ın a gorgeous bay. We could easıly ımagıne Ulysses saılıng by.

I ended up stay in sima peace by accident but it turned out to be the most beautiful experience I had in the turkish hostels. The owner is a very friendly person, always ready to help, interested in interact with her guests. The rooms are clean and the dinner is just excellent. I recommend sima peace to all travelers in cirali.

This pension is in a great location close to the quiet beach.The lady who owns it is really warm and welcoming, in the time I was there she offered her car to guests to vist the chimera and put down complimenatry bottles of wine on the table at meal time.
A very hospitable place to stay.

We stumbled upon Sima Peace by accident and our luck was in. Anyur the hostess was an amazingly hospitable Turkish lady who wants all guests to see Sima Peace as their home from home. Surrounded by animals, Anyur ıs the Doctor Dolittle of the village of Cirali with its tranquil 4km beach only a stones throw away ensures a convenient location. The best value and food quality we have encountered within Turkey. We thoroughly enjoyed our time here and our only regret is that our stay here was too short!

If you're trying to find a home from home, discover Sima Peace Pansiyon, Cirali.
Anyur is one of life's special people, she is a privilege to know. So full of energy and with a wonderfully infectious joy for life.
Anyur's wonderful hospitality is only matched by her fabulous authentic Turkish cooking. It is no wonder that her guests keep returning year after year, after year.
Of course the adjacent beach is wonderful. Perfect for swimming.
And the ancient city of Olympus, just a short walk along the beach, is fascinating to explore through the undergrowth and overgrowth, unspoilt in it's lost world atmosphere.
And another walk inland takes you to the Chimaera fires on the mountain (how does that work?)
It was difficult leaving Sima Peace Pansiyon.
Thank you Anyur, and Sinan, Coco the parrot, and Efe the golden labrador.
Like all her other guests, I'll be back.
