Cesmealti has a mild spring. March-April average 20-24 degrees. From May the temperature rises about 2 degrees per week.
June-August is always above 30 degrees. September 27-32 degrees. October mild.
Cesmealti is centrally located between Izmir and Cesme (cheshme). From our house it is a 30 min drive to both Izmir and Cesme.
By motorway (toll) goes even faster.
Izmir has about 4 million inhabitants and is easily reached by bus or minibus (dolmus), or car.
In Izmir allows unlimited shopping in the numerous shops but you can also take a look at a number of historic buildings.
The same applies to Çeşme, a car has advantages because there is much to see in the area covered. Cesme has a bay with beautiful white beaches.
It is one of the more luxurious places in Turkey where many celebrities stay. Alacati is located 6 km from Cesme, a historic village (Greek influence) with cozy streets and on Saturday the big market with many stalls (both food and clothing). Alacati is also one of the most popular surf spots in the world.
You can make a day trip to one of the oldest historical sites in Turkey (About 3000 years ago) Ephesus. Nearby the home of the Virgin Mary after Christ. Also not far away are the beautiful vineyards of Sirince. This ancient village is beautifully situated in the hills and is definitely worth a visit.
These are just some of the attractions and we can also help you as a guide and chauffeur if you need it, reasonable in price.
OUR EASY REACH
The easiest way is by plane if you come from abroad. At the airport you can rent a car or we can pick you up if you find yourself more comfortable.
From the airport is about 45 minutes drive to our house. Be careful where you should turn, therefore we recommend to you to be picked up by us and if necessary later rent a car
In our house we use slippers in order to keep it clean. As in all rental occasions, we must take into account noise. So for example after midnight a little careful with music/voice. You can feel free to use our garden which is surrounded by a hedge, so you can enjoy a drink or perhaps a dinner undisturbed.
Very clean & comfortable house. We had our own room with our own bathroom and balcony with a great view.
Erik and Serpil were very helpful and we really enjoyed staying at their house.
You can reach the supermarket, bazar and the beach in a few minutes.
Although we lived together in the house, we still had our privacy.
When I first saw the picture of serpil and eric, I thought "oooh such a cute couple, seem like nice people". After doing some research, I realized that the town was a quiet Aegean vacation spot blessed with decent wind. So I chose to stay with them. This was a surprise stay for my husband's birthday. I can say with all my honesty that this was one of our most enjoyable and relaxing stays ever. We enjoyed Serpil and Eric's hospitality and company very much. Such lovely people with big hearts and high standard of serving the guests. They even prepared a birthday cake for Dirk! The area, çeşmealtı, is a nice quiet town with laid back locals. You do not need a beach to go swimming, you can hop in from the pier:) There is also a really good windsurfing camp/school 10 mins walking distance away. Really helpful professional people with smiley faces:) The rates for the rental and the classes are way lower compared to alaçatı or surrounding areas. The wind was pretty good throughout our stay. Overall, both serpil& eric and the town get 10 out of 10 from us:) we are looking forward to our next visit! Sizi çooook seviyoruz Serpil&Eric! Herşey için çok teşekkürler! Thank you guys for all the love and hospitality, we love you!!:):)
We had a wonderful time staying with Serpil and Eric (and friendly dog Mini), who are extremely welcoming and kind hosts. Cesmealti is a lovely village with a great local market and beautiful sea to swim in. The apartment is very comfortable, quiet and has everything you would need. Serpil is an amazing cook, and we were lucky enough to taste a few of her dishes, as well as the great breakfast every morning, including fruits from the garden! Serpil and Eric were really helpful and gave us tips for the area and advice for travelling. We really loved our stay and were sad for it to end; especially with such good hosts and friends!! Thank you!!
Sehr nette Aufnahme dieser sehr liebenswürdigen Gastgeber in einem freundlichen ruhigen Umfeld fussläufig zum Meer.
El estudio que construyeron Eric y Serpil en el piso superior de su casa es perfecto. Tiene todas las comodidades q se requieren para unas vacaciones, mas una muy linda terracita para tomar algo cuando cae la noche o cenar. Ellos son verdaderamente muy atentos, excelentes anfitriones siempre dispuestos a dar una mano. La cena (paga) que prepara Serpil es una maravilla super recomendable. El pueblo es lindo y muy tranquilo.
Serpil and Eric are the warmest and most friendly hosts we could have ever hoped for. They went out of their way to help us many times, gave us invaluable tips and really spent quality time with us over dinner! Their house is really beautiful and convenient and the breakfasts are so heavy that they kept us going almost till the evenings. They are also extremely interesting people, great fun to talk to.
Cesmealti is a village from a dream. It is far from the beaten tourist track - apparently we were the first Indians to have ever come there. Still, it is not far from cesme, alacati, sirince or ephesus, all of which can be done with a rented car. They also helped us get one at a discount! The garden, the house, the food... everything there is lovely and thoughtfully done up. They were always looking at ways to help us make the most of our trip.
We had a great time living with serpil and eric and they have become our friends for life and were very sad to leave! We recommend this place a 100% to anyone looking to get far away from the madding crowds.
Eric&Serpil 是一对super nice的夫妻。 去他们家之前，他们就发来短信表示关心和欢迎。到的那一天Eric还特地来车站接我们。当我们到他们家的时候，觉得像是回到了家里。房间非常棒，有个小厨房，有个很棒的露台，还有很新很干净的卫生间，甚至有自己的洗衣机。真的太棒了。更重要的是，他们真的太好，随时都在关心我们，给我们泡茶，泡咖啡，还玩了咖啡占卜。早餐也非常棒，Serpil还做了一顿特别好吃的晚餐。原本我和我丈夫打算只两晚的，但是因为太喜欢这个小镇，太喜欢Eric&Serpil和他们的房子，我们改签了机票，多住了一天。如果想要彻底的放松休息，那么他们的家会是一个最好的选择。强烈推荐！
