ACCOMMODATION & DINING DESKTOP

All the accommodations on this walk are good quality small family-run pensions, guesthouses or hotels. They are typical of the region and well off the tourist routes.

Some of the lodgings have swimming pools, and all have in-house dining/restaurants. What’s most important is that you will receive a warm welcome and get to enjoy the Turkish hospitality that out-of-the-city regions are famous for.  The accommodation locations are beautiful and are also in more remote areas and less frequented.

A set menu is provided when dinner is offered in-house at your accommodation.
