Our eco-friendly place is a charming little hideaway, with a peaceful and secluded location and a wonderful sea view. It is located on a hillside 1,5 km from the picturesque and peaceful little village & harbor of Bozburun.
The nearest neighbour's house is 50 meters away and below (no buildings higher up or at the same level).
The house (built in 2008) has an open layout with integrated lounge/kitchen and sliding doors and windows facing the large terrace towards the sea. The larger bedroom with door/window towards the terrace has one queen-size bed. The smaller bedroom has a bunk bed, the lower bed being slightly larger.
The kitchen has a fridge with a small freezer and a combined gas/electric stove. There is an oven, a microwave oven and all other utensils you might need. The bathroom has a toilet, shower and a washing machine.
Our place aims to be eco-friendly and using sustainable energy solutions. Therefore, we have solar heated water and a solar-electric system powering the garden lights and the pool system, as well as powering the house during a power outage.
Bozburun is one of those rare coastal villages not yet "discovered" by the tour operators and mass tourism. The Adatepe surroundings are un-spoilt and peaceful; the driving road ends 400 meters away and below our house at the seaside hotel "Mete". From there a dirt road and (for the last 50 meters) a steep dirt track leads up to our house. The sea shore is 200 meters downhill from our house.
At the cozy water-front hotel Veranda (200 meters downhill), you can have a nice dinner, a beer or a soft drink, rent a kayak or just swim unless they are fully booked.
Fresh mountain water can be fetched at the nearby water post (very good and for free) by the small public beach close to hotel Mete. Bottled water can of course be purchased in any shop.
The wooden terrace with a bamboo roof covers the full length of the house (11 meters) facing the sea, the bay and the sun-set.
At the south side garden there is a pergola with a shading roof, a dinner table, a BBQ in the stone wall and a shower.
At the north side of the house is our small pool (3 m diameter) with a large wooden sun-deck area with sunbeds, sun-shade and a shower.
The house has no air conditioning system but the Meltemi wind coming directly from the open sea, passes through the windows during the day. In the evening the mountain wind makes a cool breeze in the opposite direction. There are ceiling fans and some floor-standing fans that can be used during the night hours, if needed.
There is a very good sound system to which you can connect your lap top, smart phone or mp3 player and play your own music. The house has its own wi-fi system with internet for free. At most restaurants in the village, as well as at the hotels near to the house, you can connect to internet via wi-fi for free.
It may be challenging to walk the last part of the dirt track up to the house especially if it is hot, which is why we do not recommend our place to people with physical restraints. For this reason, it is NOT recommended to bring large suitcases! (It is not possible to wheel them). We strongly recommend only back-packs or similar and proper trekking/walking shoes. We do not allow children under 7 years of age due to the high elevation to the land below the terrace and garden walls.
We will be happy to send more information about the house and surroundings, what to do and see etc, once the booking is confirmed.Get the full listing »
