At 60ft high this is one of the tallest buildings on the island and from the living room balcony the panoramic sea views and a view to the 18th Century Greek Orthodox Monastery on the hilltop opposite is stunning. There is also an outside, private terrace (30m2) at ground level behind the property, which is a perfect suntrap – surrounded by trees & mansions this it is both secluded and intimate – lounge furniture, dinning furniture and BBQ is all provided.

If you are looking for an Istanbul city break with a difference, or a Turkish island beach holiday with some added excitement then look no further than the Princes' Islands. Turkey may be one of the UK's top holiday destinations, but Istanbul's Princes' Islands are still well off the beaten track for foreign visitors. Mostly visited only by day-trippers from Istanbul, the Princes' Islands are a world apart from the hustle and bustle of the city. Despite this, they are only 45 minutes by ferry from the historic sites of Istanbul. The Princes' Islands offer a choice of relaxing Turkish beach clubs so you really can have it all - a holiday combining history and culture with sea, sun sand and relaxation. The sea is clean and rich with sea life. You can often see pods of dolphins from the ferry as you travel across between the Islands and the Mainland. Connecting the Middle East with Europe, Istanbul's important sites include Hagia Sophia, the Blue Mosque, Topkapi Palace, and the Grand Bazar.

The Karamanyan is a 140-year-old Historical Timber Mansion, which was once used as a dormitory for the monks from the 18th Century Greek Orthodox Monastery set upon the hilltop opposite. The mansion was painstakingly restored and renovated in 2008 and was divided into four '2&3 Bedroom Boutique Apartments' over 4 levels with bespoke furniture and all its original detail and charm.

This Mansion is next to a small Island Museum (once the house of Inönü, second president of the Republic) and is a 10 minute walk to: The Beach Clubs (With swimming pools and restaurants), Monastery, Village, Port & Promenade (lined with cafes and fresh fish restaurants). HEYBELIADA has all the attractions of it's bigger sister BUYUKADA but has far less tourists in the busy summer months. Just 45 minutes by fast boat to Kabatas near Taksim on the European side and 30 minutes to Bostanci on the Asian side. Combine a wonderfully relaxed experience staying in this stunning apartment on the beautiful CAR FREE Island of Heybeliada with sightseeing in Amazing Istanbul! You can enjoy the 3 beach clubs, take a private boat around the archipelago of 12 small islands and of course visit the stunning and chaotic city of Istanbul and its world famous Blue Mosque, Hagia Sophia, Grand Bazar and many, many more tourist attractions. Istanbul is a city built upon 7 mountains, across two continents with a sea running through the middle of it!!! It is a truly unique city and a top sight seeing destination. However, there is one little know tourist attraction which the Turks like to keep secret and that is the "PRINCES' ISLANDS".

Location description from owner

The Princes' Islands region

The Island is only 45 minutes by ferry from the historic sites of Istanbul. The Princes' Islands offer a choice of relaxing Turkish beach clubs so you really can have it all - a holiday combining history and culture with sea, sun sand and relaxation.The sea is clean and rich with sea life. You can often see pods of dolphins from the ferry as you travel across between the Islands and the Mainland.It's much quieter and relaxed around the Islands, only the ferries dock and the port is on the other side from the Beach Clubs and Beaches (on Heybeliada). There is a small marina for the yachts in the Beach Club area but its never busy and only adds to the beautiful setting.

Heybeliada

Connecting the Middle East with Europe, Istanbul's important sites include Hagia Sophia, the Blue Mosque, the Topkapi Palace, and the Grand Bazaar.However, 'The Princes Islands' are a little know tourist attraction even to the Turks living in Istanbul. The main reason for this being that the islands were initialy inhabited by a wave of Greek and Armenian Bankers who built Holiday mansions there at around the turn of the 19th Century. This made for a truly odd paradox, these tiny little Islands have almost no Islamic influence and so its quite out of place in Turkey and so close to Istanbul. It also means that to this day Many Turks still won't embrace these Islands because of their History and this is what makes them such a remarkeable secret and unspoilt gem in the crown of Istanbul's tourist destinations! I have been lucky enough to travel the world, but when i got here, by chance i might add, i stopped and said, 'I wana buy a Mansion'! In fact now that i remember, It wasn't the Turks that i was working with at the time that told me about 'The Princes Islands', It was an Arab that i had met out there from Dubai, he said you have a weekend here, go to the Islands, 'It's another world'.Tips:Visit the Monastery on the hilltop opposite the mansion. Visit Buyukada (the biggest island which has even more beautiful mansions, but many tourists and day trippers). Istanbul itself is built across 7 mountains on two continents and is the only city in the world which has a sea running through the middle of it! It's an enormous sprawling city with attractions such as the giant mosques in Sultanhamet creating a stunning and unmistakable skyline and rooftop bars and restaurants of Taksim, Beyoglu and Tunel which are packed with good natured drinkers and dinners every night! This is a fantastic city with a dramatic clash of cultures and history prevelant at every corner. Take a boat trip up the Bosphorus, or a day trip to Ortakoy which is a lovely neighbourhood by the huge suspension bridge. The Princess Islands are a complete contrast to the hustle and bustle of Istanbul, so enjoy a unique experience of culture and relaxation.FOR MORE INFO AND LOADS OF PICS: Right click the link below (for Mac, ctrl click) and choose Download File.www.pimpfilm.tv/TheKaramanyanHotel.pdf
