The village of Alacati is located on Turkey’s Cesme peninsula and is less than an hour’s drive from Izmir airport. The region has been for years the holiday and weekend getaway destination for wealthy and cosmopolitan Turks from Izmir and Istanbul and is starting to be discovered by international tourists.
Over 80 small and chic boutique hotels providing hospitality, narrow streets paved with old stones, unique smells, white old stone houses with blue shutters, authentic cafes and restaurants are the identity of Alacati. The main streets of the village have unique fashion and design boutiques, galleries and antiques.
The village is a couple of kilometres from Ilica and Alacati beaches. The first one, on the Cesme district, is long and with golden sand and warm water. The second one is a famous destination for surfers and kite surfers, who come for the year-round breezes. Minibuses circulate all day between Çeşme, Ilıca and Alaçatı, linking these locations and making it easy to move around.
Alacati is a hidden destination for an amazing and stylish holiday experience!
