The Vali family would like to offer you the warmest Turkish welcome to Villa Vali: a select, family run hotel consisting of studios, apartments and villas situated in the heart of Akyaka which caters for the needs of singles,couples and families. Akyaka is an unspoiled and largely undiscovered village on the edge of the Gulf of Gokova nestled between pine forests and eucalyptus woods. Imagine all the benefits of tranquility, serenity, luxury and splendor just moments away from long sandy beaches with shallow waters, waterfront restaurants offering international cuisine and a beautiful spring fed river abundant with wildlife whilst being overlooked by pine clad forests that follow a spectacular mountain backdrop which brushes the edges of a turquoise Aegean sea. Villa Vali's traditionally built holiday homes offer the best placed accommodation in Akyaka and provide today's guests with all the comforts of modern living in an authentic Turkish atmosphere. Villa Vali is a private oasis of quietude on the very doorstep of a resort which offers something for everyone: extreme sport activities, bike hire adventures, historic and ancient sites, sandy beaches and more. Situated between woodland and the Kadin Azmak, Villa Vali is within easy walking distance of a stunning beach, shaded forest walks, charming architecture, a plethora of wildlife and excellent fish restaurants set on the river. The Bozkurt family offer you the comfort and luxury of an established and acclaimed holiday home complete with free wifi, air-conditioning, television, full amenities and niceties including the option of delivering heavenly homemade Turkish food to your door.
The Villa Vali grounds combine traditional Muğla architecture with modern detail in an idyllic setting. The walled gardens of Villa Vali offer a clandestine retreat that is equipped to meet everyone's needs. Envisage bright pink bougainvillea tumbling from pine balconies and manicured gardens filled with the scent of semi-tropical flowers whilst unwinding and moving from sunbed to swimming pool in no more than a splash. Visualize summer trickling through a sun parasol whilst you decide which cool drink to take from the honesty bar. Imagine a place that offers quiet shady alcoves whilst losing yourself in your favourite music or book. Visualize a classic wooden farmhouse table where you can enjoy a freshly prepared picnic or barbecue al-fresco style. Golden sunsets and sandy dreams are whispering in the onshore breeze and saying believe. Akyaka has the extraordinary and wonderful ability to leave you speechless and turn you into a story teller. Dream this image and open your eyes to a reality that continues to captivate so many of our guests.
Villa Cevahir is a two bedroomed ground floor apartment and is designed for up to four guests. The open plan lounge and kitchen area is pleasing to the eye combining traditional pine fittings with modern fixtures and furnishing. The kitchenette is fully functional and is equipped with a large fridge-freezer, gas hob and sink. The master bedroom leads from the lounge and is spacious, luxurious, romantic and elegant: the focal point being a beautifully fashioned stone fireplace perfect for cooler evenings. This bedroom opens onto a private terrace for two and overlooks the beautifully maintained gardens of the estate. The twin bedroom, also leading from the living area, is equally desirable and continues the traditional pine theme that runs throughout: it also offers a private terrace. This apartment has a shared bathroom which is modern and fashionably furnished in marble and ceramic tiles and has a large glass panelled shower cubicle.
This apartment is ideal for couples or a family with two children.
Akyaka is a region of outstanding natural beauty. The Azmak River flows on the lower boundary of this unspoiled village: the crystal clear waters are a natural aquariuım and flow quickly from its spring source through trees and reed beds towards the Gulf of Gökova. The beauty of the river can be enjoyed by a walk against its banks or by boat. Take pleasure in the beauty of the river's colourful pebble basin and the wildlife that is abundant: fish, tortoises, ducks, kingfishers and the protected fish otters that bring this idyllic ecosystem to life. Fish restaurants line the banks of the River Azmak. In the morning choose a traditional Turkish breakfast and watch dragonflies dance across the water or in the evening sample locally produced organic vegetable “meze” starters and delicious fish courses. These well known restaurants offer a truly cosmopolitan cuisine to the most discerning of travellers.
Even though Akyaka is a wonderful place to just sit and do nothing, on occasions the urge may hit you to go explore further afield. The Villa Vali family will help you discover the hidden Akyaka and the magic of the region. Check out Mugla market for local wares and produce where you can pick up a range of souvenirs at reasonable prices. In Turkey particularly good value items to take home are lokum (Turkish Delight), honey, pistachio nuts, sunflower seeds, peppercorns, pepper grinders, dried herbs, apple tea, stalks of sage and camomile tea, tea glasses. Also leather wallets, handbags, belts, woven tablecloths, ceramic ware, gold and silver and traditionally woven carpets and kilims (in specialist shops). Don't forget to barter prices for the best bargains! Take time to visit Zahire Pazaar which is overlooked by an old-town mosque and features lazy cafes spilling across a leafy cloistered courtyard dotted with traditional craft shops: the city subsidizes their rent to maintain traditions such as marbled paper and art, hand-woven items and intricate painted boxes. Even if you're not shopping for crafts make an opportunity to sample an atmospheric drink of cooling home-made lemonade, traditional Turkish tea, refreshing ayran or creamy salep. As the sun sets choose from a selection of tobacco flavours and smoke from a nargile pipe: a great way to slow life down and relax.

The Turkish Aegean Coast region
The holiday town of Akyaka is set in southwest Turkey at the end of the Gulf of Gökova. This little known holiday destination sits at the base of the Sakar Mountain and stretches to the Gökova Plain.
The holiday season spans April through October and the region averages 200 - 250 days of sunshine per year. This area of Turkey has the perfect climate for holiday makers: water temperatures range from 15 - 26 degrees and in the height of summer an onshore breeze makes the hottest of days very comfortable.
This region of Turkey is an area of outstanding natural beauty. Ecologically the local area offers a diverse range of flora and fauna. Architecturally the town is unique and all houses are crafted from local resources in the style of the architect Nail Çakırhan. Culturally the sleepy characteristics of this village are preserved: there are no nightclubs and loud music late at night is forbidden. Historically Akyaka has areas of interest, boasting antique remains, roman tombs and a medieval castle. Nearby Gökova has ancient Lycian rock tombs.carved by hand into the mountain.
Akyaka is served by Dalaman Airport, 67km away. To see traditional Turkey the region's capital of Mugla is a 25km drive. Marmaris, 30 km away, sits on a marvelous bay at the edge of a hilly peninsula and offers a harbourside promenade and a raging nightlife. All are accessible by public transport and car.
The province of Mugla has lots to offer. The ancient city of Ephesus, the best preserved city in the Mediterranean, can be visited within the day. Also a day trip away are the travertine pools of Pamukkale and Hieropolis ruins and the ruined city of Aphrodisias. Köyceğiz is a peaceful lakeside village set within a nature reserve and boat trips can be taken from here to Dalyan, to Sultaniye hot springs and mudbaths and to the ruined city of Kaunos. The journey to Dalyan takes about an hour: the town is set on the banks of a river and is backed by a cliff face with Lycian tombs. Iztuzu beach, famed for its sandy beaches and loggerhead turtles is easily accessed from Dalyan.
Akyaka is an unspoiled village sitting on the edge of the River Azmak and Gokova Plain is best described by its view from the Sakar Pass descending from Mugla. The view is breathtaking and embraces untouched pine forests, secret coves and bays along the turquoise coastline and the government protected Eucalyptus Alley running from the Gökova crossroads to the neighbouring village of Akçapinar. Akyaka rests sleepily between turquoise waters and a stunning mountain backdrop and is a tranquil location far from the crowds of nearby resorts.

Akyaka has a unique architectural style influenced by Nail Çakırhan. Since 1968 the houses of Akyaka have made the most of natural resources and hand crafted timber and have combined traditional features of Ula houses with modern architecture. Intricate woodwork design and balconies over-flowing with bougainvillea are characteristic of this village and enhance its charm and beauty.
Akyaka is a village unspoilt by development and is a holiday destination secret. Akyaka has a variety of restaurants, bars and cafés. Whilst good food and live music is abundant the calm of Akyaka is protected by its local population: there are no nightclubs and loud music late at night is forbidden.
