For those of you wishing to escape the daily grind and hectic pace of modern life and looking for something that will give you a unique experience, coupled with relaxation and special interest, then Dirim guest house is for you.
Located in the countryside, just 10km from the ancient site of Ephesus in western Turkey and surrounded by nature and forest trails, the area is host to a wonderful variety of bird life and flora and fauna, which is constantly changing with the seasons.
Joining in the local life is the highlight for most guests who have stayed at Dirim, whether that be eating at the home of a Turkish family in the nearby village and having your fortune read in a Turkish coffee cup, helping to collect olives early winter and seeing how olive oil is produced, or celebrating a cherry blossom festival in April/May. The possibilities are endless, as the area is also littered with the remains of Roman and Greek civilisations, so if you are into history, you won’t be disappointed. Mix all of this with walks along the forest trails and through olive groves, reading a book under a pear tree in the garden or sipping a glass of wine on the terrace as the sun sets and Dirim is the ideal retreat.
