I came to Olympus because after Cappadocia we wanted to visit the Turkish coast, mostly the Lycian coast. My friend recommended Ahmet Olympus: He said it had an amazing beach, ruins of an ancient Lycian city and a young and relaxed atmoshpere. He told me something that left me surprised: According to him, Olympus people lived in huts on the trees. I took a 12 hour bus to Antalya and from there a combination to Olympus. The place was idyllic, rustic, lost in a valley between mountains. I took the time and dreamed of Olympus and its beach where a few decades ago backpackers and hippies made it home. They slept where they could, until things started to organize and wooden cabanas were constructed against and over the trees... In one of those huts I stayed. I chose the Pension Saban, I found it to be the best. My bungalow had everything I needed and was spotless. Saban is the quietest pension in Olympus as it occupies a large woodland garden with hammocks and sun loungers, and a bit removed from 'Centrito mini' Olympus, where reggae sounds blaring day and night. Another advantage of Saban is good food, breakfast, and your hostess Meral, a girl who was born in Olympus and has much to tell.
