Don't know whether it was the vicinity to the sea, the fresh air, the relaxed atmosphere, the abundant and good food or the comfy bed, but I hadn't slept this well for years. However, it is also a great location if you want to do more than just sleeping: it's on the Lycian Way (great for hiking), a short, easy bike ride to the base of Mount Chimaera/Yanartaş, and the archaeological site of Olympos is just a stroll down the beach. And, of course, there's the beach. The bungalows are simple, but comfy, and very clean; the breakfast fantastic. Durmus is lovely, and so is the rest of the family I met. I was hoping his mother would adopt me and I could stay with the chicken forever, but somehow that didn't work out and I returned home with a jar of homemade jam instead. And happy.
I have nothing but amazing things to say about Durmus and his family. A gracious and friendly host, Durmus provided the perfect place to explore Cirali and the surrounding areas. The bungalows were clean, new and cozy; the breakfasts were beyond delicious and plentiful; and the home-cooked dinners were well-priced, fresh and local. Traveling in a group of seven we loved the free bikes, the closeness to the beach and the self-service coffee, tea and drinks. Our bungalows were also surrounded by pomegranate and orange trees providing us with fresh fruit galore. We even came to love the chickens (who acted as our early morning wake-up calls)! Thanks again to Durmus and his family, it was an absolutely wonderful few days in Turkey!
Everybody was friendly - Durmus and his family as well as the cocks and hens.
We enjoyed our stay very much!
Very rarely do my girlfriend and I go to places where we think 'we must return here', but this is definitely the case not just with Cirali, but with Durmus and his family's place specifically. From the large delicious breakfasts in the morning, to the bikes that you can freely use, to the welcoming common sitting area, to the beautiful flowers everywhere, this place is spectacular. He was very helpful in booking us a boat tour and giving us suggestions of places to explore. We would highly recommend the dinners - the home cooked food (especially the manti-so good!) is fantastic. The rooms had air conditioning, nice showers and hammocks you could relax on out front. All in all, we were sad to leave and would return in a heartbeat. Great value for a place where you meet nice people, relax in beautiful surroundings and eat delicious food!
Everything about this stay was wonderful. The kindness of the family, the ease of making our way during the day, the quality of the food, and the responsiveness to requests and questions. We extended our stay as we were so happy here. We also appreciated the access to bicycles and the sea. We would love to return and have already recommended it to others. Thank you for your warm hospitality.
Wow, this place was amazing and Durmus was great. Breakfast was included and it was almost too much food. The beds we comfortable and the showers were hot. Bikes can free with this place and we rode down to the beach and the the ruins every day. We are defiantly coming back someday.
