Daphne House is a vacation home open to the forest, with its tranquility in spite of the dizzying rhythm of the world. A modest, understated, warm world welcomes you behind the high stone walls.Trees giving a different color to every corner, fragrant flowers, and vines and cacti planted by Refiye and Bülent almost compete with the majestic pines in the forest. The wonderful dishes from Refi’s kitchen bring the guests together at the huge table in the garden for joyous, long, pleasant conversations.
Guests starting the day with a grand breakfast with organic products from marmalades to olives can go search for the thousand-year-old city of Lykia with Bülent or recline on hammocks at the edge of the forest. If you’d like to retreat to your room, Refi’s clean, crisp sheets welcome you with the same simplicity and sincerity asin the silence of the forest.For this reason, Daphne has “regulars” of all nations.

Olympos / Antalya / Turkey
Direction Transportation has significantly improved as Olympos got more crowded. Two separate shuttle companies provide transportation from Olympos to the main road and back every half an hour
Any company’s minibus from Antalya to Kumluca and Kaş will bring you to the Olympos junction on the main road.
Easiest way of transportation is taking a taxi from the airport to Olympos –costs 130 New Liras and takes 1.5 hours. However, if you don’t feel like it, you can take the minibuses from Antalya City.
If you are driving down to Olympos, please keep in mind that the first Olympos sign you see on the mainroad at the Çıralı junction will not take you to Olympos but to the beach, so drive past it and take the next turn 500 m further by the sign that says Olympos 11 km and Çavuşköy 15 km. After an 8 km ride, you will see a sign that says 3 km to Olympos. Do not take that either, drive for another 100 m and finally on the right hand side, you will see our Daphne House located amongst the tall pine trees of the forest.
