Gourmet Tour - Sirince & The Rose Mansion

    hrs Estimate Duration
  • Meal


Walk through the atmospheric streets of the hillside village Sirince as a prelude to lunch at a historical mansion known for its rose gardens. As you approach the city, you will pass orchards of fruit such as peaches and kiwi that are often used to make highly prized sweet wines. Most of the stone-and-stucco residences in Sirince are painted white with red-tiled roofs, giving the village a wonderfully uniform and traditional appearance. It offers a magnificent setting for lunch at the beautifully restored Güllü Konak, which is Turkish for “rose mansion.” It is only fitting that each room is named for a variety of rose. Fruits from Sirince’s orchards are typically featured on the lunch menu. You will likely be served a salad of wild purslane and juicy peaches and a main dish of slow-braised beef ribs with dried fruits. The accompanying wines will also be infused with fruits such as apples or perhaps berries.
