Welcome to Şirince
Nine kilometres southeast of the springboard town of Selçuk, and at the end of a long narrow road that wends its way up into the hills passing grapevines and peach and apple orchards, sits Şirince, a perfect collection of stone-and-stucco houses with red-tiled roofs. Şirince's bucolic wooded setting and long winemaking tradition have made it popular with Turkish and foreign tourists alike and it gets very busy at weekends. While this deluge has affected the village's original charms, it remains a beautiful place. It's much more tranquil by night, and a handful of tasteful boutique hotels offer overnight accommodation.
