Your Host

I, Başar Şafak (1983), inherited Özşafak Pension and the surrounding orchard from my dad Ali. I was born and raised in Gaziantep (southern Turkey) and studied Economy at Uludağ Üniversitesi in Bursa. But in summer time I could always be found in the stunning Aladağlar (Taurus Mountains - Toros in Turkish) with my dad who was a well-known guide from the sixties on.People describe me as cheerful and animated. And I guess that is true, because I do like to help my guests.I like to make you feel welcome and at ease in my pension overviewing those amazing Aladağlar. Any question you have will be answered to my knowledge, experience and possibilities.
