The historical mansion, reflecting all the tranquility of Büyükada, is the ideal escape from the daily routine and perfect for relaxation on Istanbuls largest Princess Island. At Büyükada you can enjoy a book, while sipping on coffee in the terrace. The pool scene is also very private offering you that refreshing daily dip. The island is very nice for walking with pleasant forest roads. Motorized vehicles are forbidden bringing you back into a time before cars. There are several historical buildings on Büyükada, such as the Ayia Yorgi Church and Monastery dating back to the 6th century, the Ayios Dimitrios Church, and the Hamidiye Mosque built by Abdul Hamid II.
