The Ottoman-style homes in Antalya’s Akseki neighbourhood have been preserved in line with the original plans, and tourists continue to be attracted to them. 80,000 local and foreign visitors are said to have visited the mediaeval village last year. The Sarhaclar village of Akseki, which was abandoned by its inhabitants after the caravan trade lost its relevance and is located on the Historical Silk Road in Antalya, is being revived by repairing the mediaeval button cottages amidst the ruins.
The odd 350-year-old structures are referred to as “button dwellings” because the scaffolding made of wood that was left outside when construction was finished resembles buttons. Murat Katrc, one of the visitors, disclosed that he was from Zonguldak and currently resided in Germany. According to Katrc, he took a trip to Antalya with his wife.
My wife and I took a weeklong holiday in Antalya. As part of alternative tourism, we began by visiting the Altnbeşik Cave and the button houses in the Ormana Neighborhood. Then we went to Sarhaclar village to see the buttoned cottages. It’s interesting to visit this place because of its fascinating history. It makes you remember things. There is an excellent museum in this region. We had never been to this village before. This location lacks any real substance.

It has managed to keep its identity as a destination in Turkey because to its natural beauty and distinctive houses. Everyone should go and take a look, in my opinion. I’m ecstatic to be here. According to Ursula Lorns, who came to visit on vacation, I went to Turkey from Germany for a three-week holiday. It has been commonly noted that this place has button dwellings and travels. There is a big area where Sarhaclar’s button homes are located. It hasn’t lost any of its history.
Mustafa Kavasoglu, an alternative tourism operator, said:
“When I came, there were 4 families living in this village. I was very impressed by the texture of this place. I found it very interesting and very beautiful. It smelled of history all over this place. The button houses have been preserved in a very original way. I saw that the mosque was a place with extraordinary embroideries. The street was a village that remained original because the people who stone the mountain did not live. At that time, there was no study here on alternative tourism.”
