Condo/Apartment -
1 Bedroom, 2 Bathrooms, Sleeps 4
A cozy and silent two-storey apartment in a 140 years old building located in the heart of the old city, Galata. A flat with a beautiful private garden where you can have your meals and drinks. Galata Tower is 2 minutes and Metro and Tram Stations are 5 minutes away on foot. The famous Hagia Sophia and Topkapi Palace are just 15 mins away with a tram ride.

• The private garden - which is very rare in the area.

• Duplex apartment in a historical building, with authentic touches from the past: the cistern used for collecting rain water, old fireplace used for cooking, well in the garden for getting domestic water.

• The silent neighborhood - if you need a good night sleep and awaken with the sounds of the birds.

• In the hearth of the city - very close to historical places, restaurants, trendy cafes and bars.

About the neighbourhood
My neighborhood, Galata, is located in the old city center where mostly inhabited by expats and artists. This area was the hearth of the social life and was the melting pot for Armenians, Greek and Turks. Genovese enhanced Galata in the 14th century and made it their trade post. That's why it's still a cosmopolitan and a rich area.

Galata is neighbor with Taksim, Beyoglu, Karakoy and Cihangir where the heart of the city beats with its trendy restaurant, cafes, shops, markets and music places.
