We had a great week at this villa. It is maintained superbly by the villa owner's neigbours who keep it really immaculate. It is well equipped and the welcome pack provided was very good. We... more

The Villa was comfortable and had everything in it that was needed for a relaxing and carefree holiday. It was clean, comfortable and the continued maintenance of the pool, supply of drinking water, linen change and other services provided were excellent.
The restaurants in Akbuk offered good food at very reasonable prices. The locals made us feel very welcome and were extremely friendly, the only downside was the lack of variety of the food.
A trip to Ephesus is a must, it takes half a day to walk around and was a wonder to behold. This should be followed by a visit to the small village of Sirince. We had lunch in the Sirincem restaurant, this was one of the best meal we had on our holiday.
Driving along the costs roads we found some great beaches and local bars. The beautiful views and friendly locals created a clam atmosphere that allowed us to take time to eat drink and relax.
Our 3 Children (13, 12 & 11) enjoyed the whole holiday, there was plenty to keep everyone happy. We all agreed that we would return Turkey.

A very comfortable attractive villa with everything we needed provided. Everything very well looked after and very helpful neighbours who maintain the pool. Swimming pool was beautiful and very necessary for cooling off as it was very hot. Lovely balcony for the evening - (it was too hot and windy to sit on the roof) A good base for visiting some of the many historical sites around such as Ephesus, Temple of Apollo, Priene etc.
