We started our Turkish journey in Istanbul and did 5 days of culture (loads more still to do!) Then we flew south and had 3 days in Kas - good fun. Finally we ended up via Journey Anatolia at Bellerofon where we chilled for a week. Orange Grove suited up really well - tranquil. Breakfasts were splendid as were the evening meals. We did try a couple of restaurants in the village but ate 5 dinners (out of 7) at the hotel as the cooking and ambiance were the best. Truly relaxed in very mellow atmosphere - Afik very laid back about everything! The resident chickens, ducks, tortoises, kittens were most entertaining. We walked a lot (sometimes 3 - 4 hours) in evenings or early mornings, then swam, snorkeled and read loads of books - thank goodness for the on-site library. The bentwood rockers on the deck became our favourite place to hang out! The bonus was seeing the baby Loggerhead turtles make their way to the sea- special. The ruins at Olympus are a must. Chimera, we felt, was rather over rated - partly because having reached the flames there was a loud communal sing song going on (!) not sensitive to others and couldn't be silenced...
We rarely say this (being travelers that try different places) but we know we will be back.
Thanks to Akif and all the team that made it such a special time.
