Our second visit to Galler Villa and it did not disappoint. Property is walking distance to all amenities so no need for a car unless you want to explore outside the area. Accommodation is spacious and of good quality, however we spent most of our time outside on the various terrace areas around the pool. The pool was very well maintained, the pool-man came daily to make sure it was clean.
If you like to walk, get up early and take a stroll along the sea front around 7.30-8.30 in the morning. You will be amazed how many people are out jogging, swimming in the sea, making use of the 'gym' equipment situated along the way. On the way back pick up some freshly baked bread from the bakery across the road.
The local buses are cheap and frequent. We went across to a beach on the other side of the bay (near the Holiday Resort Hotel) and the bus driver will drop you at the end of the road. Also took trip on one of the local boats - it visits 5 bays where you can swim in the clear waters from the boat. Lunch is included and the drinks priced similar to the local bars.
Our biggest find this time was the fish seller on the main street behind Pizza Hait/Garden Restaurant. He has a small outlet on the Friday market as well. For only 1 lira, he will not only clean the fish you select but cook it on the bbq and package it to take away. The sea bass are huge and taste better than any we have had at home. At approx 30 lira (£11-£12) for 4 large fish ready cooked, we went back several times.
We came away thinking that as much as we would like to return we should really look at trying somewhere else next year. However, after only two weeks back in the UK, starting to consider booking again for a third time!
Thanks very much for a wonderful review, much appreciated again and you are always welcome at our villa.

This was our first time in Turkey and definately wont be the last. The villa and pool were superb. Everything we needed to enjoy a really comfortable stay was found at Galla villa. The location to bars,restaurants and the beach was terrific. We would thoroughly recommend a stay in the villa and would love to return.
Thanks very much for a lovely review and please come back !

Excellent, top quality villa situated within walking distance of all amenities. Eating out iso cheap and with so many restaurants to choose from, we ate out most nights but the Friday market is a must for stocking up with fresh fish and local grown produce. The huge prawns we barbequed cost pennies and were delicious.
Already booked for 2012 and cant wait to get there. As tempting as it is to simply relax by the pool, it is worth hiring a car for a few days to see some of the countryside and places of interest.
Donna and Sirdar at Pasa Bar will make you very welcome and they have entertainment on a Friday (best to book as it gets busy!). Ask them about the floating fish restaurant for a real treat.
Thanks for your reply, much appreciated .
