“Turkey's best kept secret and the wamest of welcomes.”

The owners, Omer and Sukran are two wonderful warm and friendly people. It would not have been possible to have been made more welcome. Sitting on board Omer’s friend’s boat out in the bay late into the late evening, eating food prepared for us by Sukran, washed down with red wine; breakfasting with them at a tiny restaurant away out in the countryside – eating fabulous freshly cooked pide; sitting in a restaurant with them on the quayside while Omer selected the finest fresh caught seafood, washed down with far too much Raki! These are just a few of the memories we brought home with us.

The stone house was unlike anything we had ever stayed in before. A traditional Turkish house, beautifully restored by Omer and Sukran but equipped with everything we could need. It is located within a secluded and peaceful garden yet only a two minute stroll from the harbour, shops and restaurants.

Foca must be Turkey’s best kept secret. I had never even heard of it until I discovered it one night on Google Earth. It is a traditional old Turkish fishing town with two harbours and protected by ancient stone walls. There is not a high rise block to be seen and one can wander in peace through it’s narrow streets.

A six lira dolmus ride takes you in minutes to one of several beach clubs set in calm sandy bays along the coast. Fifty lira buys you a day’s boat trip including food and drink on board and many stops along the way for swimming and sightseeing.

At night the town comes alive with it’s many restaurants, bars and coffee shops. It’s lights reflect in the bay.

If you want to escape for a week or maybe two and enjoy true Turkish hospitality then this is the place for you but don’t expect to meet many British people.

To get there, fly to Izmir. From there Omer will arrange a taxi to carry you the seventy kilometeres (about an hour) to paradise (sorry I meant Foca).

We spent 6 nights in that old stone house and there we had a perfect stay. The location is very clean, is fully equipped with everything you need for a stay with children and has a wonderful garden with exotic fruits. We got home made jam which was fantastic. In four minutes by foot you are at the harbour where you will find lots of restaurants. The owner are very lovely and tells you about some special places you should/can go. Finally, it was a perfect location with lovely owner.
