Stay in an authentic neighbourhood of Istanbul, Turkey and immerse yourself in the local life! Turquoise House is on the outskirts of the tourist area, with easy access to Aya Sofia, The Blue Mosque, Topkapi palace, the Grand Bazaar, Beyoglu and Taksim.
On hilly cobbled streets, the twin neighbourhoods of Balat Fener were once the home of Istanbul’s minorities. Here you’ll see Greek, Jewish, and Armenian homes, and some of the cities oldest Synagogues and Churches.
The area was recently declared a world heritage site by UNESCO and has a mixture of older more conservative residents and more modern newcomers living in their restored houses. The area is a photographer’s dream!
The apartment has 2 double rooms, one of which can be converted to a twin. With a sofa bed in the living room, the apartment can sleep 6. This is first choice of small group holiday travellers.
Your host’s are local British/Turkish residents who are on hand to give any information or help if required.
Ask about the gorgeous studio apartment on the ground floor, which can be booked in conjunction with the Turquoise House to sleep a total of 8 people, or can be booked as a stand-alone cozy studio!
