The castle

The Castle has brought life to old stone Greek houses located in the most beautiful point of Yukarı Kaleköy, a historic Greek village which can be considered the heart of Gökçeada.

The old buildings that make up our facility have been meticulously restored with greatest care and in accordance with the original traces to result in 10 beautifully designed concept rooms. These concept rooms provide you with the rightful rest you are looking for and the harmony you desire for an unforgettable holiday.

The hillside village in which our place is located introduces you to unforgettable views, while the ancient ruins of the Genoese Castle offer you the right scene for the perfect sunset over the Aegean Sea.

Being our guests, you can start the day with serpme kahvaltı, a traditional Turkish breakfast, served on your balcony. While sipping your morning coffee, enjoy the insatiable views and relax under the shade of the fruit trees before exploring the unique Gökçeada.

In the evening, let yourselves enter the magical sights of the sunset over the sea and the Samothrace island. Accessible through our backyard, the ruins of the historic Genoese Castle welcome you to experience what has become tradition in the island.

Enjoying this precious location, our facility gives you quick access to Turkey’s first underwater marine park. You can go for a fresh swim in crystalline waters at Yıldızkoy beach or enjoy immaculate nature on the several walking trails. After sunset, turn to the port of Kaleköy where you can find various restaurants and cafes with regional cuisine and live music. All of this within one kilometre from us.

The centre of Gökçeada and the airport are also just 4km away while the Kuzulimanı port with connection to the mainland is reachable in 9km.

Farther away at 16km yet providing breath-taking views on your way you can find the Aydıncık beach and the Salt Lake, certifying Gökçeada as a destination with plenty to offer.

In the meantime, here at The Castle, we aim at providing you with the best rest and a unique experience. With its unique views, friendly service, local stone architectural concept rooms and home-warm environment, our place is looking forward to welcoming you as our dear guests.
