About this listing
Tucked away amongst the narrow streets of a typical Turkish village a few miles from Ephesus and the Aegean coast this refurbished 5 bedroomed boutique hotel was formerly an antique Greek villa. A quiet oasis in a perfect location for touring.
We have 5 charming rooms (single/double/twin) with en-suite facilities, located in our luxurious, award winning and highly regarded, Muses House Boutique Hotel. We are part of Turkey's premier listed boutique and historic hotels of character.
You can book for 1 person, 2, or up to 10 in a small private group!
We also let the WHOLE hotel as a self catering villa through AirBnB - see our other listing on AirBnB
All the facilities of the Hotel are there for you to enjoy - Note: Breakfast is INCLUDED in the rate.
This room is a standard room, which can be made as single, twin or double. The other 4 rooms, also available on AirBnB comprise a standard room, 2 Luxury rooms and our super Deluxe Room -(large double beds only, (e.g.: 4 poster bed, large tub bath AND separate shower)
So why not stay in absolute luxury near the great wonders of Ephesus amongst many other places of interest.
The hotel is located in the small traditional village of Kirazli and yet is only 11kms from the Aegean coast and the resort of Kusadasi - with all its facilities - where you can even take a 1 day trip to the Greek Island of Samos - there is so much to do!
Use our large guest living room with a huge and professional library of Turkey and chat with us on any aspect, including (during the MAIN season) detailed historical knowledge of the area by Maggie who is a fully qualified Ancient Historian and who has published and lectured internationally. She is always ready to help with any questions and to organise excellent official guides for any trips to the many archaeological sites.
Relax in the secluded flower filled garden or under the shade of the large old walnut tree and hear the gentle sounds of the village beyond the high walls.
Use the pool and recline in this sunny courtyard. At sunset, watch the swallows darting over the pool. Enjoy breakfast and our optional dinners outside under the olive trees. Alternatively there are several local restaurants in the village.
Local Dolmus buses ply the route to the coastal resort of Kusadasi and elsewhere - and a train station, only 9 kms away, provides links to Izmir airport and the city. We can provide transfers upon request.
We welcome everyone: old, young, singles, couples, straight or gay. We are perfect for those travellers who want not only comfort, but charm and character too.
This is a unique oasis in a traditional village - come and share it with us - you will be surprised!
Full access to all the Hotel facilities.
Interaction with Guests
We are on site to help you and make suggestions on any aspect of your visit to this area. Maggie is an expert on the history and Archaeology of the region - and we have many books on the subject for you to enjoy.
This is a very typical working Turkish village so you will see farmers at work and everyday life in all aspects - in contrast to the tourist resorts of the coast.
Public buses ( dolmus) travel to and from the coast to Aydin and Selcuk ( Ephesus) via our village at regular 10-15 minute intervals throughout the day.
Other Things to Note
This is a rural location in a village of about 1,000 people but there are restaurants, tea houses, a baker, a small supermarket, a weekly village market, locals selling their own produce, and a lot more....
As this is a boutique hotel - we abide by normal hotel practices and our hosting may seem slightly more formal to that which is common in private AirBnb lettings as we may have other hotel guests at the same time.
A full alcohol and restaurant license allows us to provide most things you wish to have. Smoking is NOT allowed in the bedroom or other main hotel rooms, but OK in Garden and by the Pool.
