There are direct flights from many European cities to Izmir as well as very affordable local charter flights from Istanbul or Antalya. Pegasus Airlines, Atlas Jet or Onur Air has great deals. When you land in Izmir Adnan Menderes Airport, you rent a car from the airport and in around 20 minutes you will be in Urla. If you want, we can pick you up from the airport and rent our car to you as well. I will give all the guidance you need, local stores, groceries, BBQ, where to find delicios meat and great wine. If wanted, I can arrange boutique wine tours and sailing classes.
Urla is a coastal town near İzmir Province, in Turkey. İzmir center (Konak) is at a distance of only 35 km (22 mi). An important part of Urla's population is composed of residents, who commute to the big city every day, access to and from İzmir and Çeşme, an international center of tourism at a distance of 45 km (28 mi) from Urla, having been greatly facilitated by the building of a six-lane highway. To the south, Urla district neighbors that of Seferihisar and the settlement pattern is thinner in that section, with even some empty land, although housing projects targeting İzmir's professional classes start to show a rising interest for that section as well. The name "Urla" is derived from the Greek Βουρλά ("Vourla") meaning marshlands and the town was cited as such in western sources until the 20th century. Urla is where the ancient city of Klazomenai is located and its highly interesting remains are much visited, while the name lives on in the unofficial appellation used in the region for part of the coastline of the district, "Kilizman" (Former name of Güzelbahçe).
With its 2 new ports that host private yachts, beaches with white sand and crystal clear water, Cesme Castle, great fish restaurants, Alacati bazaar, traditional "kumru sandwiches" and night life 'Cesme' is one of the most popular beach towns of Turkey. It's 20 minutes drive away from our house on a 6 lane highway.
Alacati is on of the best spots for windsurfing in the world. The old town of Alacati is one of the pretties Mediterranean villages. Dining at some of the most spectacular restaurants, handcrafts bazaar, Turkish coffee in the village center are only few things to do after a day at the beach, or surfing. There are bunch of beach clubs, where you can lounge and have a cocktail and just enjoy watching surfers, or take private classes.
You can do day trips to one of the largest ancient city Ephesus, visit beautiful wineries of Sirince.
Daily ferries to the Greek island of Chios from Cesme port, 0nly 30 Euros for round trip.
Enjoy your stay!
We rented the house for our family for 11 days during our wedding party in Urla.
Everything was prepared perfect and our family enjoyed the brandnew and super clean house.
Gülsah and her parents are very warm, polite and friendly hosts. You could feel that they were interested to give their guests a wonderful time.
If you look for a holiday destination in Urla we can recommend the hosts and the house a hundred percent.
Thanks a lot to Gülsah and her parents,
Selma and Stephan
