An authentic stone house with a breath taking view, a unique experience of historical revival in a calm. Original and romantic environnement surrounded by lemon, citrus, pomegrenate and palm trees facing the Aegean Sea.
Our small village house is located on the shores of the beautiful Aegean sea facing the island of Chios in the village of Ildir (Ancient Erythrai). It is made out of the old stones which built the wall of city of Erythrai 3000 BC, and which is now an open air natural museum full of history. The house is situated over a lemon, olive and pomegrenate garden and all its rooms have a full view of the sea. The patio overlooking the garden and the bay is fantastic at nights under the moon light. The house has 3 rooms fully furnished and 2 bathrooms equipped with a shower and also hosts one very small kitchenette area - appliances can be supplied if needed. The house is 50 m2 and the terrace is also 50 m2 .
We can host to 4 guests and 1 or 2 babies.
Guests can use the number of rooms they have reserved as well as the bathroom and the small kitchenette area. They can use the terrace and the citrus garden, and could have access to the swimming pool with in the rules and timing set.
Interaction with Guests
The small village house is at the same estate as the house we are living in. There is nearly 150 metres between 2 of them.
If there is any need, we are happy to help the guests.
Great view, nice terrace, beautiful garden. Funny cats and dogs.
Not very clean and rather dingy and shabby. Pool belongs to Dilek's house and was not in front of our place (no privacy). We expected much more.
amazing place. we had a great time! the view was terrific and this place is a wonderful treasure of antiquity! a working roman excavation across the street and amphitheater up the hill- you cant ask for anything more. the hosts are just lovely and so knowledgeable- they are full of history and suggestions. we were never bored. we would recommend this highly and we had just a remarkable stay!
If a quiet getaway with the perfect paradise view is what you're after then search no more as this amazing place is exactly what you looking for! Its perfect location makes it private and peaceful yet totally accessible as the bus stop is right outside the main gate and all the big seaside towns and long beach with crystal clear waters are only a ride away. Local shops and lovely places to eat are only a short walking distance. So if you want to relax, soak up some sun, eat local specialities and see new places or just laze around and do nothing all day, then I would recommend you book it now:) I felt very welcomed by both hosts right from the start. The communication before my arrival was great and the amount of information I've received was more then enough to get me excited about my holiday. The hosts are both lovely and warm people who made me feel comfortable and been very helpful in terms of knowledge about the place, directions, helping me to get around and recommending things. I had a great time and will certainly be returning for more:)
If you are looking for a peaceful hideaway, this is the place to be. Our little family loved the cosy cottage and its surroundings, to relax on the veranda with the sea view and to stroll around the fishing village. Geza's and Dilek's hospitality was the cherry on top. Geza was very helpful during our entire stay. We found lots of breakfast items in the fridge, and enjoyed Dilek's cooking on our last evening. Our 15 months old son was happy playing in the baby swimming pool that Geza gave to us, and he enjoyed the company of the friendly cats and dogs. If we only stayed a bit longer - still we are completely destressed.
The area of the coast around Çeşme is one of the country's best-kept secrets, and Geza and Dilek's house is the perfect base from which to explore it. The view of the bay from the house's terrace is beautiful, and you will be surrounded by a real Turkish garden full of almond, lemon, and pomegranate trees. Each morning Geza brought us a delicious breakfast often containing fruit from the garden and bread from the local bakery. Ildırı itself is a charming historical village; it is definitely worth exploring the ancient Greek ruins as well as taking a boat trip of the local islands. The beautiful beaches of Çeşme, Alaçatı and Ilica are a short drive away. Communication with Dilek before our trip was excellent; she gave us a long list of places to visit and things to do. Highly recommended!
I have to start with a warning; if you go and stay in Ildir with Dilek and Geza, you will never want to leave!
Every single part was simply perfect. The house was charming, had everything you could possibly want with a large terrace overlooking the gorgeous sea.
The lovely hosts are very passionate about their home and area and were always ready to share their tips for places to visit (and their vast knowledge of great restaurants was just incredible!).
Ildir and surrounding areas is filled with great beaches, treks for walking and restaurants serving delicious food. It really has something for everyone.
We did not have our own car but used the public transport which worked perfectly fine. Sometimes you had to wait for a bit but who could complain sitting in the warmth with an ice cream in your hand.
If you want to go to Ildir, this is the place to stay.
Ein wundervolles, kleines romatisches Landhaus, sehr idyllisch mit einer wundervollen Aussicht von der Terrasse auf das Meer.
Dilek und Geza sind bezaubernde Gastgeber - wir haben uns sehr wohl gefühlt!
For the last 40 years I have lived nearly all my life in between Paris-Brussels, and since few years we have decided with my husband to settle back to Turkey again. He is Belgian, and he loves the quality of life we live in Ildır as well as the calm and the possibilities of getting nearly the best of what nature offers..We were both in advertising business for years, and we love open minded, creative and interesting people..We love any kind of arts, history, and architecture as well as all kinds of music. I adore literature and philosophy. Movies and theatres for me is a must:-)
We traveled a lot in our life time, my best destinations were certainly Venice-Costa Rica-Anguilla for not counting the rest.
Personally I believe that each place has a soul and we like it or not, we have to respect it.
