FOR RENTSide Cottage House is a private villa with swimming pool for rent located in Side / Antalya - Turkey. It has 3 bedrooms
I was born and lived in stone houses in Side / Manavgat. All the houses in our village were made of stone, brick and wood. As for tourism, many houses were destroyed. I feel sorry for the destroyed houses. We were losing our historical memory and local architecture. I collected stone, wood, brick, tile and some belongings of the destroyed houses. They also dumped the stones of the destroyed houses in the dump, and I collected them. Because it made me very uncomfortable. Thousands of years ago, craftsmen worked and used these stones. There were so many memories and stories, there was life. They witnessed history. It was very difficult. In the past we had a tractor when we were dealing with agriculture and it still stands. With this tractor I have collected these stones for years. Restoration is finished in 3 years in cooperation with local government and museum. We used real stone, wood and iron. We worked with local stonemason and carpenters. Windows, doors, kitchens, floors and ceilings are made of cedar wood. Cedar columns were used. We completed the restoration in the Mediterranean style in accordance with modern life with modern techniques. We did the pool and garden. There's a centuries-old almond tree from our grandfather in our garden. We equipped our garden with bougainvillea. This type of house is cool in summer, warm in winter and has very soft, beautiful, pleasant, refreshing interior air.
