The flat is located on the first floor and is situated in an estate approx. 1.5 km south of the town centre. It comprises lounge, kitchen bedroom and bathroom.
There is a balcony facing the sea, and also a small terrace by the entrance on the opposite side of the house where you can enjoy the morning sun. Beside the building is a path down to the shared garden and swimming pool.
The flat is equipped with radio, colour television with local and satellite reception (eg BBC World, Euronews etc), ceiling fans, air conditioning, washing machines, microwave, hot plates and shower. You'll also find a small selection of books, a water kettle, and in the bathroom an iron with an ironing table.
Towels and bedding are provided, and we can arrange for these to be replaced weekly at a small charge if you wish to have this done for you.
The nearest shop is about 100 metres away, and the nearest restaurant is at the beach, about 150 metres away. There are also a couple of hotels in the area where they serve hot meals.
The town centre is reached by a 20 minutes' easy walk along the sea promenade.
Eski, or 'old' Foça, is no exaggeration for a town that dates from the 11th century B.C. It is situated on the Aegean, 670 km southwest of Istanbul, 65 km north of Izmir. Homer's Siren Rocks, made famous from the Odyssey, can be seen only 3 sea miles away across the bay. Foça has 12,000 inhabitants, and a lively fishing fleet and market is based at its harbour.
Unfortunately many of the original Greek buildings have disappeared, but enough remain, helped by small narrow streets, to preserve the authentic character of this ancient settlement. Visitors with an interest in archaeology will find that the world's second oldest amphitheatre, which has only recently been discovered, is within the town boundary.
The town is a very safe family resort, and whilst there are some discotheques, they do not intrude in the way they can in a more 'developed' resort. Most of the tourists are holidaymakers from Izmir, which helps the town's attractions stay Turkish, and visitors from abroad are mostly British with a number of Norwegian, French and Dutch accounting for the rest.
