Re: Greek village

the fab wine being only 10 tl a bottle is what i think pretty good ,if you try to get the same wine anywhere else you can pay up to 25tl a bottle ......we buy loads when we go !(after we have spent plenty of time tasting it)

The wine is not cheap, but you can taste before buying and there are lots of very tasty fruit wines. Have a drink at the old Greek church and look down over the beautifully restored old houses.

It's well worth a visit (but not in the rain in winter - the steep cobbled lanes are lethal).

Go soon because a battle has been going on for years about the restored houses. The authorities want them demolished because, they claim, the restorations were illegal.

Kirpi,

It's not actually true that the authorities want to demolish the old Greek houses. There are approximately 21 constructions, ranging from patios, stone pathways and restorations (including houses) which were done illegally. This is because the village has no guidelines r.e permission for rebuilds or restorations, so it basically means the locals cannot do any work in the village, as the permission to build cannot be granted. The locals wanted to build a permanent roof over the market area (the pedestrian street where most of the shops and stalls are) but were refused permission. This is all linked to the fact that it's an area of historical significance.

I know that the legal battle by one of the hoteliers has lead to a 3 year prison sentence - he's also an Armenian journalist. The other Turkish property owners have yet to go to trial.
