About Kucuk Ev...
When this cottage was bought, it was home to three generations of villagers and their animals, living in two rooms ! The flat roof of the cottage was originally constructed of traditional rolled clay, which unfortunately had to be removed during the renovations. The flat roof has been retained and can be accessed by stone steps from the garden. Many guests take their sundowners and sit on the flat roof in the evenings catching the cool summer breezes. The cottage roof gives uninterrupted views eastwards across the Kaya Valley, towards the Ghost Town and the spectacular Baba Dag mountain, rising to over three thousand metres.
The cottage walls are made of stone and are four feet thick ! These walls, coupled with very small cottage windows, keep the interior cool in summer and warm in winter. The main sitting room has two wood burning stoves and leads onto a fully fitted kitchen and, through a hallway, to the en-suite, air-conditioned master bedroom. Also leading off the salon is a separate shower and bathroom.
Double doors lead off the hallway and kitchen into the secluded walled garden. The patio has a dining area which is next to the traditionally built Turkish fireplace with cushioned benches, where you can comfortably relax. The fireplace can be used to burn logs for warmth in the winter months and we provide a barbeque grid in the summer to cook on during those long, lazy evenings.
