Assos Alarga, is an alluring work of architecture that has accomplished its mission of serving as a house for our family for many years and finally, in respect to its history, instead of selling it, we decided to welcome guests and share our home.
The grounds of AssosAlarga is presumed to have been operated as a stone quarry in antiquity. It has met its last owner and newest architect Turgut Alton and its inspiring muse Prof. Tuvana Alton during the early 90's, after many months of excavation, lead by the deceased, famous archeologist Prof. Umit Serdaroglu, it has taken its final, signature apparition.
