The pretty Hotel Canada in Çıralı,
next to Olimpos on
coast southwest of Antalya,
is a great place to unwind for a few
Set slightly back from the beach and
the village, it's quiet and private,
yet a few minutes' walk gets you to
Carrie and Şaban,
the genial owners (she's Canadian,
he's Turkish), welcome you and make
sure that your stay will be comfortable.
You'll notice the beautiful swimming
pools (adults' and children's),
surrounded by flowers, first thing
when you arrive:
The simple guest
rooms are tidy and comfortable,
with private baths, TVs, phones,
air conditioners and small balconies
overlooking the shady gardens dotted
with citrus trees.
The dining room serves
all meals, and the game room is
a good place to explore in the rare
event that the weather is not perfect
for being outdoors.
