Once a sleepy backwater, Alaçatı, on Turkey’s Cesme Peninsula, emerged in the 1990s as a windsurfing hot spot and now brims with art galleries, antiques shops and top-notch restaurants. In the center of town, the Bey Evi Hotel is a chic retreat fashioned from an old Greek stone house, with a secluded garden and outdoor pool. Inside, the magic lies in the details: Provencal-style upholstery, carefully selected artifacts and antiques. Furnishings evoke Belle Epoque France, in keeping with the ice-blue shutters on the windows. A pizza restaurant adds a dollop of Italy to the mix.
Bed and Bath
Despite grand beds and wardrobes, the whitewashed wooden floorboards and raftered ceilings give the bedrooms a suitably homey feel, with the TV and air-con blending in discreetly. Bathrooms are smallish but play to the French theme with plentiful L’Occitane toiletries and sprigs of artificial lavender. Recline on the sofa, work at the desk — all the amenities of home in one spacious room.
Food is a big deal in Alaçatı, and the on-site Fuoco restaurant delivers a menu of such fine Turkish staples as kofte (grilled meatballs) beautifully presented on wooden platters and served with delectable Aegean salads. Freshly baked pizzas feature toppings ranging from traditional margherita to the hotel’s own ham and pear combo. Eat in the quiet courtyard beneath a shady grapevine or at a sidewalk table perfectly poised for people watching, which is very much a part of the Alaçatı scene.
In the Area
Really, there are two separate Alaçatıs: the lovely old village, a rare example of an unspoiled Turkish town, in the shadow of four traditional windmills; and the sandy beach area, with its famous windsurfing schools. Both are extremely enticing, although the messy area between them is still under development. You come to Alaçatı to shop in the many designer boutiques and dine in the numerous gourmet restaurants. Tuval, Sudan and Agrilia are established favorites; Roka Bahcesi a highly rated newcomer. A market spreads out around the huge central mosque, once a 19th-century Greek church. Cesme’s enormous castle is a short bus ride away.

Beyevi was a completely faultless stay, we loved this gem of a hotel so much and 100% plan to return. Ertan has gone to the utmost effort to ensure every detail is covered: the decor and pool are beautiful, the rooms are incredible comfortable, the breakfast is super, as is the restaurant and service (from all the team). Ertan very kindly helped us with lots of excellent restaurant recommendations and bookings. The location of the hotel couldn’t be better either and if you haven’t been to Alacati before you are in for a real treat- a really special place made all the more so by a stay at Beyevi.
very clean boutique hotel with welcoming staff.. breakfast is good as being many hotels in Alacati.. It offers tranquality in crowd of Alacati...Lobby looks very attractive and welcoming with modern touch of traditional Alacati approach
