We have had, as always, a wonderful time here in Ilgaz. Our thanks to Carola and Oz who make one so welcome and deal with any issues with much aplomb! Our issues have only ever involved our travels, never the great hospitality and environment here! We are sad to be leaving but feel so glad that our next year''s R and R here is booked.
We first stayed at Top House in 2019 - our last holiday abroad before Covid - and now back from a second stay which proved just as wonderful if not more so. As before, with all transfers and car hire pre-arranged via Carola and Oz (who are simply the best of hosts), there was the welcome pack of wine and food awaiting us, the well-appointed villa as ever homely and comfortable with all mod cons including AC and excellent Wi-Fi, not to mention a meticulously maintained 8 metre pool awaiting our first magical dip! If you want to drop out and be lulled by the sound of cicadas and the scent of pine while enjoying the simple secluded pleasures of swimming and sunshine, reading and relaxing, of dining in the villa''''s secluded colonnade while gazing down over the tiled roofs of Ilgaz to the sea below, this is the place for you. The topmost part of Ilgaz, where Top House is situated, retains much of its original character and charm, with a busy Turkish cafe offering stunning views and breakfasts of enormous proportion and variety, while, set in what was the village bakery, Hoots restaurant proved a delightful place to dine, and both are highly recommended. Along the busy coastal road, supermarkets and restaurants abound while safe swimming is to be had at various municipality beaches (crowded but friendly and fun). In short: utter, utter bliss! Highly recommended. 5 stars and more!
We have had just the best and most relaxing time in Ilgaz again, who could not? It will make our 25th wedding anniversary even more memorable, even after the covid delays! Top House is a gorgeous villa with all its space, the pool, the stunning scenery and of course the cats and dogs. We Have enjoyed the tapas at the wine bar, the spa at the hotel, Hoots Bistro, breakfasts at the cafe and even manage the walk to Karmi. Carola and Oz are incredible hosts, their kindness, friendship and exceedingly high standards of accommodation are second to none! Thank you so, so much. Ilgaz is our "happy place" and we will be back for sure.
