WE NOW HAVE BOOKING OFFERS AVAILABLE and other properties available for renting. Visitors to Burgazada come here for the peace, tranquility and clean air, yet it's only 20 minutes by fast ferry to the heart of Istanbul. The apartment is modern, south facing, on the first floor with a balcony overlooking the pool ( End of June - End Sept) and lush semi tropical gardens with lovely trees including, palm, pomegranate, plum, ash and many more, shared with another block of four apartments. During the week people commute to the mainland. Homes on Burgazada are typically owned by wealthy families from Istanbul and used in the summer months. Burgazada winter population approximately 4,000, summer approximately 20,000, but the Island never see...WE NOW HAVE BOOKING OFFERS AVAILABLE and other properties available for renting.

Burgazada winter population approximately 4,000, summer approximately 20,000, but the Island never seems crowded. You'll be stepping back in time 50 years to when the pace of life was slower.There are ample grocery shops for all your self catering provisions, including butchers, bakers and candle stick makers (just kidding). Seriously, you need never set foot of the Island if you just want to slow to a snails pace and chill out. More

We wanted to visit Istanbul but in August felt it would be good to have a quieter, cooler place to stay and 'Serenity' on Burgazada proved an ideal choice. Our teenagers loved the good-sized pool, the aircon, TV and wi-fi. We loved pottering round the...More
