Built in 1934, by a Turkish-Greek architect, our mansion is a historical accomodation. It is on a quite and peaceful corner of the island. It is also walking distance away from beach and town center. The mansion is near to the transportation facilities: cityline ferry port and horse carriage terminal station. You should keep in mind that cars are not allowed on the Island. There are horse carriages for transportation or possibility of renting bike. There are many historical places to see. You can visit Trotsky's house in the Island. Leon Trotsky (Russian Marxist revolutionary and theorist, Soviet politician, and the founder and first leader of the Red Army) was deported from the Soviet Union in February 1929. His first station in exile was at Büyükada off the coast of Istanbul, Turkey, where he stayed for the next four years.(Black and white photo in the album, Leon Trotsky on the boat with his wife and security guard) Visitors can take a fayton ride to get acquainted with the island, and to see the konaks (villas) and kosks (mansions) nestled amid the piney, palm-fringed hills.For the first half of the 20th century, the island was popular among prosperous Greeks, Jews, Armenians and Turks. Buyukada has 3 Ortodox, 2 Catholic churches, 1 Synagogue and 3 mosques. Tourist License / Licencia de turismo N °: 22559406508More
