People who are longing a holiday away from the hustle and hassles of Bodrum and Çeşme should go to the North Aegean. Here’s the most beautiful discovery of this summer: CALİDUS
What weird people ! They complain again and again about the crowds, chaos and the cost of Bodrum and Çeşme but at the first opportunity they throw themselves into the July madness of Bodrum and Çeşme.
However, there are many other possible holidays. Calmer, more simple, more compassionate. Holidays which value people, which are pampering, comforting, which make feel at the outside of the city are quite possible.
Firstly, relaxing summer holday means to us a good marine. Clean, clear, deep and makes you feel fresh. Then , summer holiday means to us good food. It doesn’t need to be complicated, just delicious food. And lstly, it means to us silent around. Without kids. More precisely, it means following: Away from the mothers calling: ‘ Mummy! Baby! My little princess! ‘
And of course to g oto such a place, I mean you don’t have to sell your house or you don’t have to receive a bank loan.
One of the stimuli for years was Atami in Paradise Bay. But this year there were some cases that we couldn’t deal with in Paradise Bay, so we stayed in the middle. The Little Hotels book of Mutlu Tönbekici and booking.com worked again as usual: A new place in Assos: Calidus
We hava tried a lot of places in the northern part of Aegean. More spidery under the label of some natural, some reference is given by renowned academics and more like campus. Some are more mainstream, some are more personal, some have low energy, some are extremely enthusiastic.
I tell you very clearly, in fact, and I probably shouldn’t tell and should keep it for myself: There is no better place than Calidus.That never came to the North Aegean.
Once a beautiful invigorating sea. Calidus has a pier for anyone who wants to jump into the sea. Then, there is around 20 acres of land for thirty rooms, so anyone doesen’t touch anyone else. The buildins are made of Stones, there are hundred years old olive trees in the garden, amphoras on the grass, ancient objects, semi-antiques, swings and hammocks in the garden. And how hard they worked to build Calidus. They picked up the Stones in the sea and used them fort he garden ornements. They aspired even the porcelain door handles. Nothing is makeshift, nothing is too much, simple and tasteful touch is felt on every corner.
Meals are seriously delicious. They make great pizza at noons and dinners are really spectacular. Pretty good restaurant food, elegant presentation. In Calidus we ate special goat cheese, smoked trout, delicious meatballs. They can be still eaten all over again.
And here’s the most crucial point: There are no children. Chidren under the age of 12 are not allowed. So sometimes the boundries, no exposure to nerve-racking terror of child-parent relationships, there is guaranteed tranquility. The only question is: Are the cricketsthat are squeaking the kids or the adults? 12+ or 12- ?
