HOLIDAY HOME YASEMIN

Mugla area House Rental Photos and Description

House Yasemin is in the middle of the village near the mosque. Nearby is the home of the Duran family which can provide first-class Turkish cuisine, house-cleaning, transfers to and from the airport, and guides for car, boat and walking trips. Your contact is the landlord, Adil Duran, who also rents out 2 simply furnished rooms in his house. Groups up to 11 people are therefore welcome. In the house library you will find both literary books as well as traditional Turkish novels, such as those by Yasar Kamal ; a choice of travel literature, archaeological reports on finds in the Latmos mountains, children’s literature, and reference books on plants and birds. Not to be underestimated are the possibilities of seeing traditional life in Turkey. You can see bread being baked in the wood oven in the courtyard and then enjoy the warm fresh bread. You can see things not normally open to the normal package tourist, such as the Garden Bar “Ilyas Papa” where you can eat goats meat fresh.

Description of the accomodation: Kapikiri is located by the nature reserve of Lake Bafa inland from the Turkish Agais coast between Kusadasi and Bodrum. In former times the Lake Bafa was still an inlet of the sea and where famous cities such as Milet were built. The ancient harbour town of Herakleia, within whose walls the village of Kapikiri is built, lost its importance around 200 AD when the sediments of the River Menderes/Meander blocked the channel to the sea. Today the village is surrounded by a 6km long wall in which towers have been built every hundred metres. Within this wall there is visible evidence of an Athenean Temple, an Agora, a Bouletarian, a Roman Bath and an Amphitheatre. The inhabitants live, as they have done for the last hundred years, among the ancient ruins, self-sufficient with their cows and donkeys. In the distance are the extraordinary Latmos mountains with Byzantine monasteries, frescoes and 7000 year-old rock drawings. Lake Bafa is an invitation for swimming and boat trips.

Walks:

Kapikiri lies at the base of the Latmos mountains which are ideal for hill trips. Experienced climbers can enjoy themselves as well as moderate walkers. In less than 10 minutes you can be alone with the ancient city wall and remains of the city towers. There is also the opportunity of overnight stays in the mountains, where a good sleeping bag is necessary, or even taking a trip of several days through the mountains. For longer tours to specific places, such as the peak of Tekerleg Dag or the Stylos Cloisters a guide is essential. Paths are not as well way marked as in the Alps but with guides such as Adil all will be well. Throughout there is a feeling of exploration since on such trips you will meet only the semi-nomads and their herds, living in summer in their mountain caves.

Lake Bafa through the seasons: Lake Bafa is worth visiting at every season. In winter the meadows in the hills and by the Lake are full of anemones and small narcissi, the Lake is populated with migrant birds of all types, the air is wonderfully clear and yet during the day there is the warmth of spring. The rooms have heating and in the billiards room there is a strange wood stove which you can learn to use yourself or leave it to run itself. Spring brings summer like temperatures, ideal for mountaineering. For ornithologists this is a must time! In summer you can hang out on the covered terrace and watch people in the village streets. When it gets too hot you can rest in the air conditioned room. In autumn, with temperatures as high as 30C, it is again suitable for trips into the mountains and you can watch the pelicans and herons.

KAPIKIRI

  • 5 of 5
Wir waren als Familie mit zwei kleineren Kindern und einer 14jährigen Tochter für zwei Wochen in der heißesten Jahreszeit (August) und noch dazu während des Ramazan in Kapikiri - und würden es jederzeit wieder tun! Allen Befürchtungen zum Trotz (keine Disko, kein "Mädelscafé", kein Shoppen...) empfindet auch unsere Pubertierende die Zeit dort als eine der schönsten bisher erlebten Ferienzeiten. Die beiden Kleinen (6 und 3 Jahre alt) waren sofort in die Dorfgemeinschaft integriert und stromerten von Haus zu Haus, immer mal getragen von vorbeikommenden Eseln...
Adil und seine Familie sind die herzlichsten Gastgeber, die man sich wünschen kann - seine Frau kocht das mit Abstand beste Essen, das wir - als langjährige Türkeireisende - je genossen haben. Wunderbare Ausflüge - oft mit gemeinsamem Picknick - in die geschichts- und geschichtenträchtige Umgebung rundeten die Tage ab. Entschleunigt, ganz entspannt und voll von all der Herzlichkeit, die wir erleben durften, kehrten wir zurück nach Deutschland. Danke, Adil!

WUNDERBARER URLAUB ABSEITS JEDER TOURISTIK

  • 4 of 5
Wir hatten im Hause Duran eine wunderbare Zeit, wurden durch Besiere kulinarisch verwöhnt. Das Ferienzimmer war einfach, zweckmäßig und sehr sauber. Man findet alles so wieder, wie im Inserat beschrieben, selbst die Schwalben über dem Kamin. Wer sich für die Geschichte interessiert oder auch einfach nur für schöne Natur, der ist hier genau richtig. Das Latmosgebirge ist auch für ungeübte Wanderer, so wie wir, ideal. Adil ist ein ausgezeichneter Wanderführer... Ganz besonders beeindruckt hat uns die scheinbare Gelassenheit der Menschen und das für unsere Verhältnisse doch sehr einfache, aber auch zufriedene Leben.
Ein kleiner Nachteil ist die Entfernung ( 10km) zur Haupstraße, von der aus die Busse in verschiedene Richtungen fahren. Da wäre dann doch ein Leihwagen ganz angebracht.
Fazit: Ein alles in allem rundum gelungener Urlaub- wir würden jederzeit wieder hinfahren ( und werden es auch tun)

IDEAL FÜR NATUR- UND ARCHÄOLOGIELIEBHABER

  • 5 of 5
In diesem Ferienhaus haben wir uns rundherum wohl gefühlt! Von der großen, immer ein bisschen luftigen Terrasse aus hatten wir einen schönen Blick auf das Dorf bis hin zum See. Im Hof unter dem ausladenden, Schatten spendenden Baum durften wir Bessires gesunde abwechselungsreiche Küche genießen und ein Stück weit in türkisches Familienleben eintauchen. Auf herrlichen Wanderungen mit dem freundlich zugewandten, aber niemals aufdringlichen Adil haben wir viele Informationen über Tier- und Pflanzenwelt und über die Geschichte der Region (auf Deutsch) erhalten. Wer seine Kenntnisse über die Antike vertiefen möchte, kann in der bereit liegenden Lektüre stöbern.
Eine unglaublich schöne und geschichtsträchtige Gegend, die uns in ihren Bann gezogen hat!
Ein herzliches Dankeschön an unsere Vermieter für diesen schönen Aufenthalt!

IDEALER AUSGANG FÜR TREKKING UND SPÄTER ABHÄNGEN

  • 5 of 5
Es war ein wunderbarer Urlaub. Erst die dreitägige Wanderung Adil und Yussuf, dem Esel. Dann das "Entspannen" im Haus Yasemin mit familiärer Begleitung von Adil und seiner Familie und dem ausgezeichneten Essen von Bessere. Fernab von allem Tourismus und doch nahe genug, die sehenswerten Highlights zu erleben. Die besten Teppiche verkauft der Imam im Dorf. Der weltbeste Bergführer ist Adil. Das Gebirge hat paradiesähnliche Zustände. Und das wunderschöne, einfache Haus Yasemin im bezaubernden Dorf Kapikiri. Eine Zeit, die wir immer gerne erinnern. Wir kommen wieder, vielen Dank!

FAULENZEN UND KULTUR

  • 5 of 5
Der Aufenthalt am Bafa See war sehr erholsam. Die Wohnung war gut ausgestattet, mit viel Platz. Alles genau wie beschrieben. Nur eine eigene Küche war nicht vorhanden, denn in der wurde von der Frau des Verwalters für alle Gäste gekocht, auch für ihre eigenen. Aber die angebotene Halbpension war ausgezeichnet.
Wir sind viel mit dem Mietwagen herumgefahren, dabei interessierten uns die antiken Stätten drum herum besonders, und das Fahren hat sich wirklich gelohnt ! Ephesus, Milet, Priene usw. waren fantastisch.
Dazwischen haben wir Strände am Meer besucht, oft verbunden mit der
Besichtigung und Einkäufen in sehr lebendigen Städten. Ohne Auto wäre
alles schwieriger gewesen.
Aber auch der Ort Kapikiri war sehr interessant, es gab viel zu entdecken.
Auch das antike Herakleia war allgegenwärtig.
Wir hatten einen rundum schönen Urlaub, und wir wurden bestens betreut.

House Yasemin is in the village of Kapikiri which itself is built in the classical harbour town of Herakleia. Every morning the country women place their milk pails on the ancient columns of the Temple of Athene still found in their land. On the one hand there are 7.000 yeas-old rock drawings in mountain caves, Greek town sites Byzantine monasteries with frescoes, and the genuine village life of country people with their donkeys and cows: on the other impressive mountains with exceptional rock formations, eagle and vulture nests on the rock walls, inviting Lake Bafa with its beaches great for swimming, and a unique area for birdlife. At breakfast on the terrace overlooking the village and lake you can see with the naked eye pink clouds of flamingos and pelicans sitting every day on the rocks. It is an ideal area for bird lovers and climbers, who can reach the pathless summits with their guides and even be invited to tea by the semi-nomads in their cave homes.
