Olive House is a restored 19th Century cottage and shares its terrace with the Terrace Cafe. The house comfortably sleeps 4 in 2 double bedrooms, the master bedroom has a lovely four poster bed and air conditioning. As with all our houses, we have aimed to keep as many of the original features as possible, from the thick stone walls to the beamed rooms and the large fireplace.
THE HOUSE AND TERRACE
Olive House is a self-contained house overlooking the village and the valley beyond. There is a large sun terrace with tables and chairs. In the summer months, the terrace is shared with the Terrace Cafe. In the winter months, the fully equiped kitchen will amply cater for all your needs.
As you enter the house you will find a living room / dining room with traditional sedir seating facing the fireplace. The bathroom is also downstairs, and you can soak away the Ephesus dust in the unusual corner bath or choose the powerful shower before an early morning stroll through the hills.
An open staircase leads to the two bedrooms. Both bedrooms have far reaching views over the village and the valley. Turkish bespoke cotton bedlinen is provided in all the houses from Sally Lovalvo
A complimentary breakfast of fresh local produce is served daily at the Terrace Cafe, right outside your door. If you do not wish to cook during your stay, there are a number of tasty restaurants within a 2 minute walk, or you can join us on the Terrace for drinks, a 3 course evening meal or a lunchtime snack.
RESTORING OLIVE HOUSE
The house was fully restored between 2004 and 2005, and retains many of its original features. The downstairs of the house has been left in the natural stone which remained from the original construction, while the top floor is traditional wood and lath, plastered and painted white, as it is in all Sirince houses.
The 2 cupboards found intact within the original walls have been preserved and replaced in the stairwell of the house. While the windows were too damaged to preserve, they have been replaced, using what remained of the originals as a blue print to preserve the character and style of the house.

We are very happy to welcome children to our houses, but please be aware that the houses are not toddler proof. Sirince is a safe village with few cars. There is also a wonderful beach with great facilities and excellent swimming at Pamucak (12km) which children of all ages will enjoy.
