The contrast between the mountains and the beach are dramatic. Our hotel was set in a lovely orange grove, and the aroma of the orange blossoms was indescribable. The entire village feels as if it is set in a nature preserve. After a relaxing afternoon on the beach, the highlight of our stay was the nature walk to the chimaera, where we had a picnic by firelight. We truly felt as if we were in the middle of nowhere, and that this place had not changed for hundreds of years. But here is the odd part: I was able to place a crystal clear phone call to my family in St Louis to wish them happy Easter. I can´t even make a call this clear from my suburb in Cincinnati!
This village really needed more than a night´s stay, but we had used up an extra day in Antalya. No regrets.
