Renovated Ottoman villa with terraced garden and a magnificent view of the Bosphorous. Within a 2-minute walking ditance to Büyükdere (a small Bosphorous village and shopping center) on the bus route connecting to the subway, which provides quick and easy access to Taksim - Kabatas and the historical Peninsula.
Stopping at interesting museums while taking a leisurely walk along the Bosphorous or going for a cup of Turkish coffee in the gardens of an Ottoman Sultan's hunting lodge or taking a ferry to Anadolu Kavagi (a picturesque fishing village) to climb up to its Ottoman Castle and have a look at the Black Sea... are some of the attractions we can promise you. There are quite a few other surprises if you're really up to it... Or you can just relax and read (or write) your book in a serene atmosphere just listening to nature...
2-minute walk to the bus stop which takes you to the subway line (Haci Osman stop) in less than 5 minutes. You can also take a cab for 4 EUROs to get to the subway stop. With the subway, you can easily reach Taksim. From Taksim, with two connected trams, you can initially go to "Kabatas" and then to "Sultanahmet", which is the historical Peninsula.
From the airport, you can take Havas shuttle busses to Taksim, take the subway and then take a cab for 4 EUROs to the villa.
I am a retired lawyer from Turkey and I live on the ground floor of the villa.
There are plenty of nice local restaurants nearby but you should also try my very tasty homemade traditional Turkish cuisine!
