About this listing
Fully built from its original 1880's stone, this 3-bedroom stone house is located in the well-preserved, charismatic little town of Alacati. Home to cobbled streets covered in Bougainville, gourmet restaurants and bars, azure sea and white sands, Alacati is the perfect mix of Aegean summer lifestyle with upscale living. The house's location is unbeatable, the beach is 2 km away and the town's main square a 5 minute walk. It is located in a charming, quiet corner of the Haci Memis neighbourhood, well known for its antique shops, boutique hotels and cafes.
The house is built on 2 floors, and is surrounded by a lovely garden that contains a 11sqm pool with jacuzzi. The garden is planted with original pomegranate trees, jasmines, lavender, bougainvillea and an orange tree. There is also a teak deck under the shadow, with an outdoor seating set that fits 4. The garden has been designed to feel as an extension of the house, and its a dream spot for lounging in the sun, and to enjoy the breeze and peaceful ambiance of this town.
Ground floor is an integrated 90m2 space, which includes kitchen, dining area, guest restroom, fireplace and TV corner. Every detail has been carefully selected to offer a luxurious yet simple experience: solid hand-scraped hardwood floors, rustic lightning, linen curtains, provence-style furniture, SMEG country kitchen appliances, colorful terra-cotta tiles and the original stone who keeps the true spirit of this villa alive.
Top floor sits on another 90m2 and has:
- 1 guest bathroom with rain shower
- 1 bedroom with twin beds (each with a pull out bed) and wardrobe
- 1 bedroom with queen size bed
- 1 master room with poster-bed, fireplace, en suite bathroom with rain shower and balcony.
The house has been built with very high ceilings, and has lots of windows that allow excellent air flow and natural lightning. Alacati is well known for its wind, so you might even need to close a few windows at night!
The house is prepared to receive 6 guests, and will include towels and sheets. Additional cleaning services apply for more than 2 weeks stay.
The town not only offers a great range of activities (windsurf, kite surf, sailing), but its also close enough to historical sites like Ildir, Teos, Klazomenai or even Ephesus can be done on a day trip. Or if you fancy, there are daily ferryboats to the greek island of Chios.
There is a special vibe in this town, a different kind of air. It relaxes you while charging you up with pure energy. A place to see before you die!
From Jun 1 - Aug 31, 2015 the minimum stay is 6 nights.
We had two wonderful weeks in Agostinas and Turguts house. Everything in this house is furnished with love and an eye for details. Nothing was missing. We felt like home. The pool was for my kids (11 and 6 years) a cool thing and they enjoyed it very much. Also sitting outside at the terrace in the mornings and evenings and having a coffee/drink brought us memorable moments.
The house is in a small road of Alacati and very close to the Haci Memis Camii area, where you can find great restaurants and cafes. I recommend everybody, who wants to spend their holidays in Alacati to rent this house. We stayed previously in 2 other houses in Alacati and this one was by far the best one. Thank you Agostina and Turgut for your hospitality.
The house is perfect , better than what the photos show .
It is comfortable , beautifully furnished and well equipped.
even though it is close to the very lively centre of alaçati , it is a very quite place with friendly neighbors.
Each new visitor should carefully read the instructions given...everything is perfectly described by Agostina .You will find tips , places to go , practical info , etc etc .....
we highly recommend this place and its owners .
What a trip! We could not have had a more fabulous time and it was a pure pleasure to wander the beautiful streets of Alacati, eat way too much of its unbelievable cuisine and then dreamily pass through the amazing gates to this simply outstanding home. We felt totally at home. Agostina and Turgut have a better house manual than many hotels and they went to great lengths to ensure we got there easily and then basically provided a personal concierge service for the duration of our stay!
The house is stunningly appointed and the attention to detail made it feel like a welcoming, spacious, light and cosy home. The fire was GREAT! Well worth the money. We loved it - and we will definitely be back!
Do not miss the famers market on Saturday morning.
Everything was perfect!!! Agostina is a really nice person and her house in Alaçatı is absolutely gorgeous, clean and tasteful. It was very near to the center of the village but at the same time in a secluded quiet street, so we didn't have the noise and the movement that other streets in the village have. For us it was a great experience and we would go back with no hesitation.
