The Karamanyan Penthouse apartment is set apart from our other Princes’ Islands Holiday apartments. Whilst this is predominantly due to its enormous 60ft stature, it does guarantee greater privacy in the already peaceful surroundings of Heybeliada. Whilst all of our apartments have been renovated and restored from Karamanyan’s days as a dormitory for the Turkish monks who attended the nearby monastery some 900 years ago, few retain quite as many impressive original features as our Penthouse.
Of particular note is the incredible spiral staircase, which leads the way up to a spacious, stylishly decorated, open plan apartment. From there, the front balcony offers amazing panoramic sea views of the other islands and the 11th Century Greek Orthodox Monastery which sits on top of the hilltop opposite.
You’ll find separate balconies in each of the two large double bedrooms also offering panoramic views across the mountains scattered with other wooden mansions and beautifully kept gardens. With the windows and balcony doors open the evening breeze moves through the apartment offering a gentle break from the heat of the day. Sit back on the balcony with a glass of wine, the call of the mosques in the distance and the Istanbul skyline glistening as day turns into night for a magical sun down.
