Standing at the ferry I saw the island from the distance and slowly it came into sight. I saw the castle, the harbour and I smelled the sea and my dream came true. I had found my island and I wanted to spend as much time here as possible. I would like to share this beautiful place with you.
Our house is situated near one of the famous beaches at Bozcaada, but in a quite and peaceful environment and you can see the sea in the distance. It is very secluded and you have a lot of privacy. You can walk to the beach by a trail through the fields or walk to the main road and follow this to the beach or take a dolmus.
There are a lot of small beaches, untouched and you can spent your time here all by yourself. Near the more famous beaches are a lot of restaurants and is `heaven` for children and adults too of course.
In the village is everything you need, shops, little streets where time seems to have stopped, excellent wines you can taste and a lot of restaurants. A hospital and physicians are there, but we do not hope you need them.
Entertainment is organised like theater, musical sessions and also cultural meetings. Art galleries and workshops, well never a dull moment. Swimming pools are free at the hotels and very nice with the beaches nearby.
Our house is situatued in a quite environment with a view everywhere. It has
A big living room, with a huge fire place and kitchen with everything you need.
A guest bedroom for two persons with theis own bathroom.
The ‘master’ bedroom with a indoor bathroom in Roman style and a door to the terrace.
The kitchen is equipped with a cooking area, big frigde and a smaller freezer, pots and pans, french coffeemakers, watercooker, and of course plates, glasses etc.
A basement, where you can keep the delicious wines of the island.
Two terraces and the big garden around the house with palm trees, loads of rosemary, wild honeysuckle, olive trees and many `hidden`places with chaise longues where you can relax and enjoy the sun
A huge outdoor kitchen with a stone island oven, BBQ, a sink and sockets when you want to your computer, benches made in the island style and an outdoor shower.
Behind the outdoor kitchen there’s a big vineyard where you can pick your own grapes (middle to the end of august).
There’s central heating in every room, so you’ll be able to enjoy your holiday at any time of the year! There’s a washing machine available.
You can hear the birds singing and the little rabbits are running through the fields surrounding our house. We also have a small hedgehock, called `Doppie`, who wants to climb at the terrace, which he cannot manage. Our turtle who walks sometimes in the fields is called Jacob, but we have not seen him for a while.
To give you the feeling that you are most welcome at our house beds will be made, no need to bring towels or bedsheets.
Since our house is located in the country, near the beach but not near the village, you need some kind of transport. You can rent bikes, scooters or take the dolmus/taxi.
From the mainroad you have to follow a trail, passing two vineyards. This road van be a bit bumpy. After you have settled in, you can start relaxing and enjoy the sun, sea and the beauty of Bozcaada and the friendly islanders!!
