YEŞİLYURT (KÜÇÜKKUYU)

"Green Nest"

Yyurt1

On the slopes of Kazdağ (Mt İda) above Küçükkuyu on the Gulf of Edremit, Yeşilyurt is surely one of Turkey’s prettiest villages, clustering around a picturesque main square, then tumbling down tree-lined cobbled streets to the river and uphill to the views.

There’s nothing much to do here except chill out and go for walks in the lovely surrounding countryside, although the Erguvanlı Ev hotel does offer yoga courses for those in need of something more.

Sleeping

Yeşilyurt's many boutique hotels make hugely popular weekend escapes for moneyed İstanbulites, a fact reflected in their prices.Yyurt2

Transport info

In summer there are flights from İstanbul to Edremit airport. Otherwise the best way to reach the area from İstanbul is by taking the İDO fast ferry (www.ido.com.tr/en) from Yenikapı to Bandırma and then driving south through Balıkesir.

There’s no public transport to get from Küçükkuyu but taxi drivers will run you to the village.
