Nisanyan Houses Hotel is considered one of Turkey's finest hotels, yet it is a simple and friendly sort of place. Set in a remote rural village, it is only ten minutes from Ephesus, one of Turkey's top tourist destinations. It probably serves the best food within 100 miles, you'd think it is mom and pop cooking. It offers you beauty and peace, even a certain degree of ... elegance. The grounds are extensive, but they make you feel you own the place by yourself. It has the most intricately detailed decor of any hotel in the country, yet it all feels perfectly spontaneous and casual.
