Ephesus Terrace Houses, Selcuk

Discover how affluent Roman citizens lived 2,000 years ago at Ephesus Terrace Houses. These luxurious houses have been restored to such a degree that it seems as if someone is still living there. The upscale residences were mostly two storeys and featured interior central courtyards with ceiling openings. Their interiors showcase detailed floor mosaics, frescoes, carvings, and stonework of fine craftsmanship. You may be able to observe archaeologists working on site while you climb the stairs of the scaffolding to view the homes of all six units from above. The houses that are fully restored to their original appearance can be explored from inside by paying an extra fee.

  • Beautiful, authentic house with plenty of amenities, historical significance, and all managed by a nice, knowledgeable owner. Morning breakfast was custom-made-to-order and better than anticipated. Great hilltop location that overlooks the entire village. Will be planning to stay there again with my family in the near future.
  • Such a wonderful property with one of the best views in Sirince. The entire house is full of antiques and nazar boncuk's and their cafe is cool too. Moreover, the owner is such a warm-hearted guy greeting my family with elder flower cold drinks that he made his own. Highly, highly recommended whoever wants to stay in Sirince.
