Re: greak village

The Greak (Greek) village you mean, could be Şirince near Selcuk. Its a delightfully beautiful village high up in the mountains where all varities of wine are sold. Lace goods are made by charming old ladies sat outside on the roadside. It really is worth visiting.

Re: greak village

It's a lovely little village about 6-8 km outside of Selcuk. It's very well signposted and there are also Dolmus that go there from Selcuk. Go early or late as it it billed on the cruise ships that berth at Kusadasi as a visit to a typical "Turkish" village! 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.

Re: greak village

Apologies for the back to back posting.

Jock, If we have go the right village you may be interested in another little known place to visit in the area.

If you are travelling from Selcuk to Aydin, take the old, minor road rather than the motorway. After some miles, I cannot remember how many, on your right you will see signs for a railway museum. Do stop. It claims to be the largest railway museum in Europe. I really don't know if that is true but it is a fascinating place to visit. There are old locomotives and carriages that were used on the Turkish railway system, many of which were made in the UK back in the 19thC. It also includes Ataturk's railway carriage. I was entranced - but I am a railway romantic.

Re: greak village

Hello Jock,
You can take a dolmuş from Selçuk town up to Şirinçe village. It's a fabulous place like you say and a lot of the local made fruit wines are sold from the wine houses from about 10lira.
There's a great variety to choose from but you can work your way around the village, sampling at each private wine house before you decide what you want to buy.

The local crafts are still displayed and sold up there by the village ladies. They used to put them outside their own front doors and offer them for sale but during the last 15yrs or so they've had permanent sales pitches on one of the roads.

Enjoy your day, not forgetting to enjoy a real village breakfast or home-made Mantı at lunchtime. Delicious!!


The railway museum mentioned is at Çamlık, about 16kms out of Kuşadası.
Very easy to get to by dolmuş from Kuşadası as all the Aydın buses go right past the museum door.
Well worth a visit, loads of steam engines, lots of them British, nice little cafe on site as well.

Re: Greek village

Hi kevin n hazel and little colvin

Looks like we overlap by 2 days so might be a bit pushed to take you but will give you directions and a few places to eat and drink. What time you out on the 27th and do you need us to pick up some bits for you if so let us know.
