Bakkhos Guesthouse - 2007

- Kusadasi

Bakkhos Guesthouse, situated in the hills about 4 kilometres outside Kusadasi, is an idyllic place in which to stay. It is set in a large garden, which is both luxuriantly overgrown and immaculately maintained, with an attractive swimming pool as its focal point and plenty of pleasant areas in which to relax. We stayed there for eleven nights, and were extremely well looked after by our hosts, Manuela (who is Dutch, as are many of the guests) and Orhan, and their staff. Amongst other things, they arranged transport to and from Izmir airport and a hire car for a few days, and they were always sources of useful information about the area.

Breakfast was usually served on an attractive terrace outside the main building, and, throughout the day, one of the 2 waitresses, one Turkish and one Dutch, would be wandering around the garden, ready to take orders for drinks or snacks. The delicious Turkish-style evening meals provided good opportunities to get to know our fellow guests and to swap stories with them, as we ate round a large table together, and Manuela and Orhan often joined us.

Although Bakkhos Guesthouse is well away from the hustle and bustle of Kusadasi, it is readily accessible by the very frequent dolmus minibuses which run along the road at the bottom of the track leading up to the guest house. Bakkhos is an excellent base for exploring the numerous historic sites and other places of interest in the area.
