  • After 1 km you will pass a construction/stones depot on your left, called "Selimiye Insaat".
  • Follow the main road for another 400 metres, just before the main road goes into a sweeping left hand corner you will notice a small road straight ahead. If you miss this turn you will see a small hotel on your right called, "Swan Lake". Turnaround.
  • Take this road slowly as it is quite narrow at the top. After 30 metres drive, the start of the road for Villa Gelincik is a loose gravel area on your left. The concrete road is small and goes up the left hand side of the first “house” you see, beside a blue water depot.
  • Although the road is completely concreted, it's steep so not everyone will be comfortable driving up. Please make contact with US (0530 6624589) before attempting the climb! Villa Gelincik is right at the top, on the right. There is enough space for 1 car at the villa, but it is perfectly OK to park down at the bottom.
