If you want a few charmed days on the Side seafront, the Beach House is great place to book. Rooms are modest and not all have a/c, but the ceiling fans create a breeze. In its glory days, this is where Rudolph Nureyev and Simone de Beauvoir bedded down. The hotel is built on the grounds of a Byzantine villa, whose ruins are used for a garden with lawns and the tiniest of pools. Across the quiet street there are deck chairs and umbrellas for guests on the sand. The restaurant overlooks the sea on the east side of the peninsula, southeast of theater.
