Safranbolu Holidays

The immaculately preserved Ottoman town of Safranbolu is home to a glorious collection of around eight-hundred half-timbered Ottoman merchant houses dating from the 19th century. A UNESCO World Heritage Site, Safranbolu was once located on the major trade routes that criss-crossed the Anatolian plateau – the riches of which can still be seen in the stunning mansions funded by the wealth that was created. Explore the town’s cobbled streets – Market Street, with its old houses, Shoemakers Street and the 350 year old Cinci Han, a resting house for travelling merchants, are particular highlights or travel north to visit Amasra on the Black Sea coast. Here, see the ruins of the citadel, wander through the ancient streets and enjoy the relaxed atmosphere of this coastal town. Every holiday and tour to Turkey that we design is one-off, memorable and special.
