Çiğdem'inn Sığacık No.6 - One week
What a breath of fresh air. The most refreshing accommodation located in the heart of Sığacık, Seferihisar, an idyllic seaside neighbourhood on the west coast of Turkey.
You will be blown away by the quality of these apartments. They are luxurious! The complex is new, and the quality of furnishings were exceptional; no IKEA in sight!
When searching for the perfect place to stay during our visit to Sığacık, I was looking for something modern, spacious, comfortable, but still cozy enough to feel homey. This was just that and so much more!
Upon booking via Airbnb, you are warmly welcomed by the lovely hosts, and on arrival, Mr Hamdi, the most delightful and kind man, along with his wife, is onsite to greet you and present the apartment. The team are always floating around in the background but never intrusive of your privacy. Cigdem & Ozgur are divine hosts, full of local sightseeing tips, their favourite restaurants and always available to help make your stay as seamless as possible.
We were also delightfully surprised and overwhelmed by a surprise gift of beautiful fresh flowers on our last night, which genuinely melted our hearts. A special thank you to the Çiğdem'inn team for their generosity and kindness.
Each morning you are greeted by the sun shining through the whole apartment. It was decked out in welcoming pastel tones, with a touch of modern art throughout. This awesome nook in the lounge was like a bay window set up to enjoy your morning coffee and bask in the sunlight. We couldn't get enough of this area. It truly felt like home. You were also very spoilt with space.
Each evening, you sleep soundly and warmly in the large double-bed, excellent firm mattress with an abundance of pillows and blankets. You will love the peacefulness of the quiet village too. The bathroom featured a large shower, ample storage, and excellent water pressure and temperature.
The kitchen was a pleasure to cook in, fully equipped and of the highest quality equipment. We took advantage and made sure we cooked a few meals at home during the week.
In terms of location, we couldn't have been more fortunate. Everything you needed, from everyday essentials to restaurants and bars, was on your doorstep, along with the beautiful port and harbour. You also have a 16th-century Sığacık Castle full of fantastic dining establishments nestled inside the castle walls, all within a few minutes' walk.
We left a piece of us in Sığacık. The people are beautiful, genuine, kind, and full of a unique and lovable energy. We cannot recommend this destination and accommodation highly enough. Be sure to add Sherlock Steakhouse & Pub to your list for a drink and more beautiful people.
