You’ll love my place because of the green and natural surroundings, its ambience, the outdoors spaces and gardens, and the views of the forest. My place is good for couples and solo adventurers. It's very quiet and peaceful. We are surrounded by native deciduous forest. It's a fantastic place to escape from the city for calm rest and relaxation
We live in a wooden house and we are a working organic smallholding, growing our own fruit and eggs. Milk is from our neighbours' cows. There's a spacious garden (5,000m2) and we have a Spring which supplies fresh drinking water. The bedroom is a generous double room, with a double bed, ensuite shower room and wardrobe/chest of drawers, as well as a desk. The view from the window is across a hazelnut plantation with a stream running by. It's very quiet.
There is a large comfortable sitting room, as well as plenty of outdoor spaces to hang out and relax in. We have a big kitchen, various bathrooms, and a comprehensive library of books. There are also cards and board-games available. The village shop is a short (5 minutes) walk down the hill. There's a village minibus to and from Yalova, which runs about every 2 hours.
We live here full time and can provide you with plenty of information about the area. We're close to the geothermal hot springs at Termal, and you can also base yourself here to explore the local area Istanbul & Bursa are each 1 hour from here by car, bus or ferryboat.
We have cats, dogs, and chickens and over 200 fruit trees. You can also buy any of our home made (organic) preserves, eggs, fruit (in season), and the village shop sells pure honey.
You are welcome to join us for dinner in the evenings. Alternatively there are three restaurants in the village, (trout/meat/home-cooking) and many other restaurants in the nearby villages or in Yalova town.
