WELCOME TO THE MİDASHAN

 

Midas Han is closed during the months:
December, January and February


The Midas Han is a multifunctional complex; it has guestrooms to stay in and a large camping site for tents. There is a restaurant with full meals for the hotel and campsite residents. The Midas Han can be used as a base to start daytrips in the surrounding and return to comfort in the evening. It can also be the starting point for a week long hike through the ‘mysterious landscape of the Phrygian Highlands’ or to walk sections of the Phrygia Way. These long trips take place under the guidance of a Midas Han staff member to ensure not to be lost in space and give if needed touristic or if needed; basic medical assistance.

The Midas Han facility consists of

The guestrooms 1-3, these are located in a local old farmhouse type of buildings that have been altered to make life of the guests more pleasant and comfortable. The old houses have rooms that were not interconnected and to move from one room to the other one had to go out on the narrow veranda. There was no running water and the toilet was in an ‘outhouse’ in the garden. The houses have been restored and altered: each room has now a spacious bathroom with a European ‘sitting’ toilet and a shower with hot and cold water. The original soil floors have been changed to tasteful tiles. The old atmosphere is preserved in the plastered walls and the wooden beds. In winter the rooms have an old style stove that burns on wood. The veranda was widened to a now two meter wide ‘ place of relaxation’ with plastered benches with pillows and a great view towards the rock tomb group of Gerdek and the high mountains behind them.

The guestrooms 4-8, these rooms are located above the restaurant/salon and kitchen of the large new building. There are rooms for 3 or 4 persons. Some rooms have single beds, others a double bed and one or two singles. Those rooms are Ideal for a family with children. All rooms have their own bath and toilet. In front of the rooms is a balcony where one can sit and have a great view of the landscape and in the evening a nice sunset.

The camping, this is a large grassfield surrounded by a high stone wall with open views towards the fields and mountains. It has a horizontal flat ‘grass on soil’ surface to ensure comfortable camping in small hiking tents and in large family tents. There is on this field no place for campers or caravans. However next to the property is a large open space where they can stay the night while using Midashan’s facilities. These are the toilet and shower block with hot and cold water, the restaurant and terrace. The camping is open from April till November.

The restaurant, from the menu small dishes can be ordered. We have also in the weekends a Brunch service between 09.00 and 14.00 (reservations are required). The residents of the hotel or camping have the option to have dinner in the restaurant (if announced ahead of arrival). Hotel prices include breakfast. It is not allowed to bring own food and beverages into the restaurant and garden of the hotel section.

The dining and sitting room, is furnished in a way to give an impression of the old traditional way the Turks lived and worked. Old tools and objects are on display, two old fireplaces will attribute to the warm atmosphere during cool or cold nights.

The hostel, this is a room with two bunk beds and an extra folding bed. Maximum 5 people can stay here. As in all hostels it can be that you have to share the space with totally strangers. The hostel is a good option during bad weather, when you don’t want to set up a tent.

Activities can take place; such as bread baking in a traditional stone and clay made oven, weaving, pottery making, yoga, painting and photography.
