Activities

Our pension is located in the Lake Bafa Nature Park and lies within the borders of the ancient city of Latmos Herakleia. Starting from the pension it is possible to take daily trekking tours to the historical sites of Mount Latmos, sites from the Neolithic, Prehistoric, Carian, Ionian, Roman and Byzantine periods. There are 7 different trekking routes in our area; each route forms a day trip of between 3 and 8 hours walking.

Mount Latmos is also a vast GEOPARK and is an area of unrivalled natural beauty. While trekking, you will see the huge botanical areas that are home to endemic plant species, hundreds of birds of various species, and traces of history from the Neolithic, Prehistoric, Carian, Hellenistic, Roman, Ionian and Byzantine periods. Combine this with the wonderful view of Lake Bafa, once the Bay of Latmos, and the pure, restful air, and the result is a relaxing,

alternative holiday. ​

The two brothers Kubilay and Tamer were very friendly and entertaining and most keen to please. Their families were charming particularly the children. The fresh food from their farm was outstandingly well presented and delicious. The countryside and lake were beautiful. We really enjoyed the boat trip.”

Deborah, Bakersfield (US

Friendly, beatiful view, good service and eating. Very quiet. Bafa lake is very nice and we liked swimming around the isle.”

Gerard, LELYSTAD (NL)

This place is well off the beaten track and very suitable for anyone wanting to get away from it all and relax. The proprietors are an excellent couple of chaps (and their families) who can arrange just about anything for you - plus they have a great sense of humour and are very sociable. There's tonnes to explore in the local area, though just chillin in the heat under the trees is amazing.”

John Miles, Leeds (GB)

“Excellent food (breakfast & dinner included), gorgeous location near the lake and ruins, unfortunately, I can't comment on the guide service due to inclement weather during our stay.”
