On the Loryma peninsula in beautiful South Western Turkey our Artichoke girl, Jenny Orhan runs a boutique hotel with her brother- in- law, Salih.
The village of Selimiye, is situated on a stunning bay encircled by dramatic granite cliffs. The sea is crystal clear and perfect for swimming, and the village is a popular destination for domestic and international tourists looking for an authentic taste of village Turkey away from the busy and brash resorts.
There is a good range of restaurants offering a variety of cuisines including Turkish mezze and freshly caught fish and several enticing shops if you are looking for a new sundress or pair of beach shoes.
Jenny’s son Bora runs daily boat trips which offer the chance to explore surrounding beauty spots and hidden coves and Jenny can also arrange private tours for guests of the surrounding villages. The Carian trail, Turkey’s longest coastal hiking trail, begins on this peninsula for any keen and intrepid walkers and the ancient sites of Loryma, Knidos and Amos are a must visit for those interested in the history of this stunning area.
Jenny’s House has 14 rooms, all twin/double and en-suite, some with an extra bed for family use. The air- conditioned rooms are set around the pool where Jenny’s famous breakfast is served each morning. Tea and freshly baked cakes at Jenny’s ‘Mad Hatters Tea Party’ are a highlight of each afternoon.
