Life in an Ottoman Mansion

Last week Hubby's twin brother and his family came to Datca. During their stay, their choice of hotel was a 200 year old Ottoman Mansion. Their stay gave me the opportunity to take some photos of this beautiful place.

The mansion is one of the oldest examples of civil architecture still surviving in Anatolia. It is named after Mehmet Ali Aga who was the governor of Rhodes in 1890s...

As I was not able to take photo of the suites of the mansion here are some for you from the web site of the hotel..

and of course the integral part of an Ottoman House :The Hamam

For more info and photos please visit their web site :  and if you ever decide to come don't forget to stop and say 'hi' to me..
