Additional amenities & feature info
The apartment is fully equipped for self catering but if you prefer eating out the island boasts numerous high quality restaurants and cafes to suit all tastes. Islanders and shopkeepers are very friendly and willing to help out. Try out your Turkish as this is always appreciated and a great ice breaker. Don't worry if you make a mistake, that's all part of the fun and experience. If you have a problem with anything our local agent lives on the mainland near the Bostanci ferry terminal and is available by phone.

Serenity is about 5 minutes gentle walk from the ferry terminal, shops and restaurants. The apartment block and pool is set in a large garden . It is quiet and very sunny due to its South facing location. You can view it on Google Earth 40° 52.45.30N - 29° 04.02.76E . Th...

About the neighbourhood
We are all so conditioned to accepting our lives full of traffic and the noise that goes with it, whether or not we live next to a busy road that when you come to Burgazada it is a strange experience to not have any motorized traffic. In 1926 the Islands banned all motor vehicles, apart from a few service vehicles. This single act has made them almost unique in the world and set the islands apart from all other holiday destinations.

His Burgazada home was converted to a museum in 1964, 10 years after he died of cirrhosis. It is rumored that Faik was either gay or bisexual, and that the attitude of the island granted him more freedom. In keeping with...
