Ionia Guest House

Luxury accommodation in the Aegean countryside

We’re here!

We landed safely in Izmir and reached our new house just before dawn on Saturday 19th July. That was a week ago now. Sorry for the silence: it’s taken us this long to sort out an internet connection.

It’s been a hot and hectic week and we have lots to talk about. But for now just a few quick shots of how things looked the morning we got here.

      Thanks, Nicole. To borrow from the immortal words of Bill Paxton in Aliens, at least ours is a dry heat.

  4. Looks fantastic !!! I shall await bunches of grapes in the post xx
    Love and hugs

  5. Great to hear you arrived safely. The place looks fantastic even before you have started any work. Can’t wait to see how it’ll evolve over the next months and years, and hopefully to lend a hand myself in the process. Best wishes to you from England’s South coast where we’re currently experiencing the British weather’s idea of a dry heat!
