I needed help managing the stairs and hills in addition to the walking sticks I use– and there were some challenges. One without the benefit of friends to help figure out the least number of hills or...

I only stayed at this lovely house for a few days but it was absolutely charming. The kitchen was well equipped as were the bathrooms and sleeping accommodation.

About the neighbourhood
We hope you will fall in love with our wonderful vibrant corner of Istanbul, as so many do when they come! Walk the historical streets. All unique, with so much character, some old, some in need of love and attention and many gloriously restored. On these cobbled streets, once the home of Istanbul's minorities, you'll see ancient Greek, Jewish, and Armenian homes and places of worship. This beautiful area, declared a world heritage sight by UNESCO, wonderful mixture of both traditional residents and newcomers living in their restored houses. The area, though in the heart of the city, has a vibrent “village feel' with its eclectic mixture of cultures, older residents, newcomers and visitors.
