Culture in Latmos

CULTURE AT THE BEŞPARMAK (LATMOS) MOUNTAINS;

The Beşparmak Mountains and the ancient city of Herakleia have been hosting plenty of cultures starting from the neolitic and prehistoric times to the Carian, Ionian, Roman and Byzantinian periods.

Guests staying in our Pension have the possibility to make short trips to visit the ancient sites around. As the archeological sites (like Ephesus, Priene, Milet, Didyma, Iasos, Labranda, Milas and Bodrum) are close tou our region, they have the chance to visit these sites on daily tours.


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.”

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.”
