Beautiful, authentic house with plenty of amenities, historical significance, and all managed by a nice, knowledgeable owner. Morning breakfast was custom-made-to-order and better than anticipated. Great hilltop location that overlooks the entire village. Will be planning to stay there again with my family in the near future.
Such a wonderful property with one of the best views in Sirince. The entire house is full of antiques and nazar boncuk's and their cafe is cool too. Moreover, the owner is such a warm-hearted guy greeting my family with elder flower cold drinks that he made his own. Highly, highly recommended whoever wants to stay in Sirince.
