Authentic self-catering accommodation, a stone's throw away from the Gallipoli Battlefields

The Gallipoli Houses offers self-catering accommodation in recently re-decorated apartments, studios and rooms. To preserve the harmony with this small farming community much attention was given to the overall design of the buildings to blend in with the surroundings.

 In total there are seven units for rent; all designed with modesty yet fitted-out with everything necessary for a comfortable stay, including air-conditioning, en-suite bedrooms and terraces (each with its own BBQ (gas)) with views of the 800m2 gardens and countryside beyond.

To maintain a tranquil environment, there are no TV sets or phones but free of charge Wi-Fi covers all areas.

Smoking is not allowed in any of the indoor areas.

Tucked away in the village of Kocadere, in the Gallipoli Historical Park, the Gallipoli Houses are perfectly located to visit all sectors of the Gallipoli battlefields. (Anzac, Helles and Suvla)

Nearby Eceabat offers plenty of opportunities to stock up on supplies and to enjoy the local cuisine; alternatively guests can take a ferry ride to Canakkale for more options.

... and a very special thank you to you and Ozlem for opening up your wonderful place for us. We really appreciate it. I truly wish I could have stayed another few days, but I'm determined to become a "regular" from this point on ... Thanks again.

Sir Peter Jackson, Producer and Director NZ

... Thank you for your warm hospitality during my visit to Canakkale. After our early morning stint, Tim and I very much enjoyed spending some time with you … Should I have the opportunity to visit Canakkale in future I would be delighted to visit the Gallipoli Houses again. ...

Julia Gillard, ex-Prime Minister of Australia

Super nice apartment. Well equipped with everything you need to cook. If you would like a few days of quiet countryside life, this would be a perfect spot. Our room is spacious with comfortable bed and powerful shower. Nice terrace to dine out as well. WiFi works fine most of the time. Even though we didn't have our own vehicle, Eric arranged all the pick-up and drop-off from the ferry for us. He also planned and organized brilliant private taxi tours to the gallipoli battlefields with very reasonable prices. Much cheaper than joining a big tour and much better experiences as well. We can pay the bills by credit card as well....

… We are also very appreciative of your warm hospitality to members of the team managing the commemorations. I look forward to visiting the Gallipoli Houses again, in a less rushed context, I hope...

Ian Biggs, Ambassador of Australia in Turkey

The landscape, being in harmony with the surrounding nature, and the cleanliness of the premises and the care of staff are what we really liked. They allow dogs, which was a must for us. The room was quite big, beds were comfortable and air-conditioning was perfectly and silently working. We loved our 3 days there.

... Cherie and I would like to thank you very sincerely for the most wonderful stay at your home, and a most rewarding time at Gallipoli. We appreciate all your assistance, information, transport…

An excellent place to stay as long as you realize you are out in the sticks! We wanted to explore the Gallipoli battle sites so it was far nearer/better than Eceabat town. Eric was a very pleasant host and his English was good. Eric kindly loaned us maps and books. There was no problem parking the hire car. The internet signal was good - so we could listen to Radio Caroline's internet broadcasts! We had a lovely room with a private balcony and good kitchen facilities. The latter are needed as Eric is not doing breakfasts or dinners at the moment (July 2022) and the nearest restaurants are a drive away. The air con worked well. The room was nice and quiet. The private balcony was a fine place to sit with a lovely view. Very good value too.

David Hoggett - UK

... a belated note to thank you very much for looking after me so well when I stayed with you in early July. I thoroughly enjoyed everything about visiting Gallipoli, but the Gallipoli Houses were a particular highlight. Your location is out-standing, by far the most convenient to the battlefields, and your hospitality was first class: the room was great and the warmth of your welcome second to none. I especially enjoyed our chat long into the evening. I'm afraid to say that your status as a secret hideaway is under real threat -I have been telling everybody how wonderful you were!! Please pass by thanks to Ozlem and everybody at the Gallipoli Houses...
