Alaçatı is a precious old town on the coast near Izmir Turkey.  Like Santa Barbara, there are strict architectural codes in place to maintain the traditional character of the Turkish/Grecian designs. Buildings are stone or white stucco with colored shutters topped with clay tiles.  Exquisite!


I loved the Manastir Alaçatı Hotel pictured here.
