This was a very nice place to stay and one of our better choices when travelling along the coast of this beautiful part of Turkey. The accommodation is tastefully decorated and the courtyard within which you can park your car adds another dimension to the already beautiful surroundings.
The beds are comfortable and the rooms are very clean. Hot water and clean showers the attention to detail in the well designed rooms just adds to the experience. The air conditioning is particularly quiet and our hosts provided a very friendly and welcoming service.
The breakfast was organised in the courtyard of the adjoining Ottoman house. No effort was spared in provided a feast fit for a king. With homemade jams, bread and cheeses and a selection of fruits and cakes this really was one of the best breakfast experiences we had on this trip.
The couple running this are nice people. They work hard to please their guests and they do a great job. We would have no hesitation in recommending this place. It ticks all the right boxes!
The Sato Pension is perched on a hill just off the main waterfront. The narrow cobbled roads are difficult to negotiate with a car but there is parking once you manage to find the pension. Personally I would recommend parking in the car park below on the main street and paying the 5 lira fee and then walking up to the pension although the elderly might find this a little difficult due to the steep inclines.
The house is a lovely renovated property with its own courtyard. The rooms are very traditionally Turkish as is the decor but you still benefit from air conditioning if needed. Try and get a room with its own balcony if you can. It is nice to be able to walk out of your room and have breakfast on the balcony in the mornings looking out over the Aegean sea.
The breakfasts here are excellent and Fatma the owner is an outstanding example of what Turkish hospitality is all about. You really are made to feel welcome here. The rooms are spotlessly clean and the toilet / bathroom is shared as you would expect in most pensions.
It is worth taking the time to wander around all the little cobbled streets near the pension and to see some of the old buildings and traditional lifestyles of local folk.
Please remember what you paid for this accommodation. You are not staying in a 5 star hotel and you did not pay 5 star prices. You are staying in someones home and you will share their home with them during your stay. That is what makes a pension so special.
