Guestbook comments from the manager

Wonderful cottage in the peaceful village of

Selcuk, set in a strategic location with most of the touristic attractions close by including the city of Epshesus, The Church of Virgin Mary, The Seven Sleeper’s Cave, the sky-diving base as well as beautiful neighboring villages. The cottage is

very cozy and felt just like home. It’s colorful garden was perfect for breakfast in the morning and the neighborhood was peaceful. The cottage is within walking distance to restaurants and convenience stores which was helpful. The people of Selcuk are very welcoming, warm and hospitable. Highly recommend to try Ustam’s Baklava next to the

village’s mosque. Overall, we spent an amazing time there and we just loved the cottage, would go back again!! Ben, the owner, was very welcoming and was always there whenever we needed anything or wanted recommendations on activities or places to visit.

Peaceful haven near great sites

  • 5 of 5
We found the cottage just perfect - well-equipped, nicely decorated and spacious. We were surprised by how many lovely outdoor spaces we had to choose from. The cottage is perfectly placed for exploring the many sites of this area, but is also a peaceful haven in which to enjoy a holiday. We liked the sense of being in an ordinary town with its own everyday life and were lucky enough to be here for the Saturday market, and would suggest to others that it should not be missed. Menekse gave us a warm welcome and provided us with very helpful suggestions of things we might be able to fit into our relatively short visit.

Superb EVERYTHING!

  • 5 of 5
Serenity cottage is the perfect get away. Our week that we spent here was simply not long enough. We actually stopped going to antique cities in order to spend more time in the comfortable and quiet home. The photos are good but do not do the home justice, you simply cannot express this in two dimentions well. The restoration and very respectful modernization of the historically listed home were done with respect and class. The view of the Selçuki Fortress and Saint Jean's Basillica from the terrace are indeed breath taking day and night. We were three adults and a 3 year old and were completely comfortable. Ben and Menek?e were very accomodating and professional. To say "very well done" is to understate it completely!

Great Location

  • 4 of 5
We stayed at the Serenity Cottage from March 6-9, 2013. Ben the owner was very easy to work with and arranged for his dad to meet us at the house very late at night when we arrived. The location is perfect, close to restaurants, bars, shops all within a few minutes walk, St. John's Basilica is literally down the street and the Artemis Temple is across the street.

Unfortunately when we visited, the weather was very cold and rainy. It took a while to get the house warmed up but once we turned on all the heaters, it stayed warm. The house had all the amenities expected: internet, dish TV, dishwasher, washer and two large bedrooms and baths. The shower was not closed off in its own space, so that was messy, because it never dried. Also, there was a big construction project in the front of the house, so the front was all boarded up which distorted the view of the garden. Since the weather was bad, we weren't able to use the garden so no harm done. The owners apologized and actually gave us an all expensed paid dinner at a local restaurant to compensate for the construction project.

All in all, we enjoyed our stay at Serenity Cottage and would suggest it for a group up to 4. Thanks Ben and John for the lovely meal at Tats!

Serenity Cottage a little oasis in busy Selcuk

  • 5 of 5
My husband and I found this property to be as nice as the photos indicate, clean and well-maintained. The property manager is nearby and was very helpful with information on the local sites. We were only 4 blocks from the bus station and managed quite well without a car. There are plenty of good restaurants in town that one can walk to. We also took the bus to Kusadasi for the day, Sirence in the mountains, and of course, Ephesus. You can reach the beach at Pamucak by bus in 20 min or so. I would recommend this cottage to anyone who wants to explore this part of Turkey.

Selçuk is located in the Aegean Region of Turkey and is approximately 70 kilometers south of the cosmopolitan city of Izmir.

Its name comes from the Seljuk Turks who settled in the region during the 12th century. Touched by a mix of historical periods the region boasts numerous ancient and biblical sites, Ephesus and The Virgin Mary House are amongst favorites for visitors and make Selçuk one of the most visited touristic destinations within Turkey.

Besides the historical richness of the area, there are many places of natural beauty surrounding the town; mountains lined with olive and fruit groves circle inhabitants. The cultivation of cotton, olives, grapes, and citrus fruits is the driving force in the economy in addition to the tourism industry. Despite being known technically as a ‘town’ Selçuk has a distinct ‘village’ feel about it; the quiet winding streets, parked tractors and slow pace of life reinforce this image.

The people of Selçuk are from all regions of Turkey and there is a small dispersed ex pat community. The people who visit Selçuk often speak of a ‘special indescribable something’ that attracts people here; some of these people visit time and time again others chose to settle here.

You can get to Selçuk by land and sea but most people choose the quicker option of flying which means nowadays there are flights readily available at competitive prices from all major UK and Irish airports to Izmir, Bodrum and of course Istanbul.

However, if you are not keen on flying do not rule out other methods of transport such as a cruise via the port of Kusadasi as this is only 20km away from Selçuk. Alternatively, for the more adventurous there is a train from London to Istanbul, then from Istanbul to Selçuk via Izmir.

Note. The key is to make your way to one of the bigger cities i.e. Izmir or Istanbul because from here there are lots of ways of getting to Selçuk most of which are direct.

Other Activities: Isabey Mosque, Sirince Village, Kusadasi
