This a two-story townhome located in a private development complex surrounded by olive groves and wilderness where it is not unusual to awaken to the sound of goat bells ringing in the distance as the goat herds graze in the early morning sunshine. Surrounded by dramatic rock cliffs, the private beach is less than a five minute walk from the condo. The beach offers free lounge chairs and umbrellas, a dock, a roped-off swimming area in which swimming and snorkeling can be enjoyed, and a small concession stand from which food and drinks can be purchased.

The property is close to many archaeological, historical, and natural sites. It is about a 20-minute drive from Assos, one hour from Troy, and two hours from the historic World War I battle site of Gallipoli. Assos is an ancient Aeolian city built on the rocky hillside above the charming fishing village of Behramkale. The acropolis dates to the Bronze Age, with the city dating as far back as the 7th century B.C. Plato's most famous student, Aristotle, spent over three years living and teaching in Assos. The Temple of Athena was constructed on the site sometime during the 6th century B.C., and the ruins are currently being restored to their former glory. Another archaeological site, located just ten kilometers west of the property in the village of Gulpinar, is the ancient city of Chryse, where the 2nd-century B.C. Temple of Apollon Smintheus is located. From the property, you can also visit the popular North Aegean seaside resort of Akcay, with its natural hot springs and its assortment of shops from which local olive oil, honey, and traditional Turkish goods are sold. Another nearby resort is Ayvalik, which offers ferries to and from the Greek Isle of Lesvos.
For those who prefer nature, hiking is available in the Kaz Dagi National Park, which is an approximately 1 to 1 1/2-hour drive. Kaz Dagi is reportedly one of the most beautiful national parks in Turkey and boasts Karatas Tepesi (Goose Mountain), a peak reaching 1774 meters (5820 feet) high.
