Brand new to our Cirali portfolio is the new project by Ahmet Dogan of the highly acclaimed Arcadia resort – a collection of self catering family chalets we have named The Blossom Collection.

Set in a lush orange grove, the buildings, made up of 4 wooden chalets and a traditional family house, are the perfect answer to more independent families looking for larger, self catering accommodation with access to a swimming pool.

Beach Side Chalets (Green)

Set in a lush orange grove, the buildings, made up of 4 wooden chalets and a traditional family house, are the perfect answer to more independent families looking for larger, self catering accommodation with access to a swimming pool.

The complex is just 750 meters from Cirali village center with its shops, groceries stores, cafes and restaurants, and 850 meters from the amazing Cirali beach itself.

Bicycles can be rented from the village and car hire is also available on a day to day basis.

The area of Cirali is full of opportunities for family activities; cycling, walking, boat excursions, fascinating ancient sites and the flames of chimera are all within short access, and the beautiful Cirali beach is walking distance, with its crystal clear waters and expansive beach area.

CIRALI BEACH

The most striking element in Cirali is Cirali Beach itself. Surrounded by glorious mountains, blessed with crystal clear waters and so large it never feels crowded even in peak season. The beach is under protection as it is a nesting ground for sea turtles. As such, you will not find any banana boats or para gliders anywhere in sight. Heaven!

 

The Ruins of Olympos

As the resort is situated on Cirali Beach, you will no doubt spend many wonderful hours of relaxation there. However, be sure to take the time to stroll to the other end of the beach and turn right into the valley of Olympos in order to explore the discreet ruins of this former Lycian port city. The ruins are hidden in a sub tropical jungle amongst over grown vines and trees and are simply a joy to explore. As you enter the valley from the beach, there is a small admission charge. You will also see that many of the buildings are sign posted.

 

Chimaera

High above Cirali along the slopes of Mt. Olympos is the Chimaera, known in Turkish as Yanartas or Burning Stone. It is the stuff of legend! Natural gas seeps out of the earth and inflames on contact with air. Ancient people attributed the flames to a fire breathing monster. This is a must see! Better to go after dark and bring a torch! The stepped climb to the flames is tough but with regular breathers along the way it should not be a major problem. Take a taxi from Bellerofon to the bottom of the hill, about 7 minutes drive or you could walk it in 30 minutes or so. During the climb up mind your step and watch out for slippery stones. With Turks, is has become somewhat of a tradition to cook Turkish spicy sausage or “sucuk” on the flames. Coupled with a bottle of red wine it makes for a great night-time picnic.

 

Phaselis

Another set of ruins, including an impressive theatre, await you at Phaselis, a short drive along the main road heading north towards Antalya. These ruins are better kept than those at Olympos and are set in a wonderful natural harbour. If you hire a car, this will be a pleasant half day outing. The ruins are sign posted from the main road.

 

Kekova Boat Tour / Myra & Demre

Along the beach you may see advertisements for boat excursions. Though the local boat tours are great the more impressive tour is that of Kekova Island. This involves a 2 hour drive along the coast. The boat excursion takes in the Sunken City, Byzantine ruins partly submerged under the sea, and Simena Village with its wonderful cliff top castle and amazing collection of Lycian tombs. On the way back to Cirali you should stop in Demre and Myra. The ruins at Demre are most impressive, the theatre is in fine condition and the rock tombs set into the mountains are a sight to behold. In Myra, just down the road, you have the opportunity to explore the church of St. Nicolas, the original Santa Claus. Whilst we would recommend a locally arranged tour for this day out, you can of course rent a car and do it all yourself. Take the main highway South towards Kas. Boats can be boarded in Ucagiz or Kale.

 

Car Rental & Driving

Hotel reception will be able to assist you with car hire if you wish. There is a local firm in Cirali that has a reasonable range of vehicles and competitive prices. Alternatively we can arrange it for you before you go to ensure you get a vehicle. We strongly recommend that you drive only during daylight hours. The roads in Turkey may be unfamiliar to you and this is a precaution worth taking, visibility at night is not great.

What Guests Say…

 

We have just returned from a week in Cirali and we had probably the best holiday ever. The location, obviously, is amazing (and so was the weather!) but the hotel is also fantastic. The staff there could not have been more welcoming and helpful. Delightful in every way. Do, please, pass on our thanks to everyone involved. We will certainly be booking again! Paul and Rosie Dowbekin, UK

 

As a family with 9 & 8 yrs old our highlights vary – top of the list is watching the baby turtles hatch on the beach – but we are divided about the sunrise wake up call to get there! The pool was an absolute godsend – on hot days we were able to just relax and read while the children kept busy. Toasting marshmallows at the top of Chimaera – fire mountain – was another highlight – and great fun. We could create a long list…. it was an amazing two weeks for us all. Staff couldn’t do enough for us at Arcadia’s Blossom Villas – and it very quickly felt like home from home – if not an even quieter, happier home! Felicity Mallam, 2015

 

The owners and staff are all local. All food waste is recycled and the beautiful wooden villas keep cool reducing the need for air conditioning. Once there everything is within walking distance. Charlie Leech, 2015
