This villa was built in 2006 by Curbanoglu, a local company whose philosophy was "to create holiday homes for peace, good health and happiness". The stunning location consists of a complex of 36 villas sharing two outdoor swimming pools (unheated, therefore pools not in use Nov-March) with sun beds and tended gardens. With outdoor lighting after sunset and with doorstep access to the beautiful surrounding wooded walks and hills, there is no need to leave the complex throughout the whole holiday if rest and relaxation in a fabulous climate is what is needed. Suitable for families, couples or groups. If you prefer a more active holiday it will be necessary to hire a car.

The Turquoise Coast/Lycia region
The Turquoise Coast, situated in South West Turkey is named after the beautiful colouring in the lakes, rivers and sea due to the limestone rock and also the abundant plantation which grows right down into the water. This fascinating area is attractive to tourists because of the fabulous climate, spectacular scenery and rich ancient history.
The warm welcoming Turkish people enjoy having visitors from abroad and are friendly and courteous with tourists. It is normal to be offered tea when browsing in the shops and markets and to be treated like an honoured guest when invited into local homes.
If you are feeling energetic it is easy to fill your holiday itinerary with something different every day. Locally it is fascinating to see the ancient Lycian tombs at nearby Dalyan, go on a river cruise to see the protected giant turtles, and stop off at the thermal mud baths for some beauty treatment. Gocek is a delightful local marina town frequented by the rich and famous, where you can book daily 12-Island yacht trips at very reasonable prices.
Ancient archaeological sites of Roman ruins, deserted ghost villages and huge Greek amphitheatre are a must for the cultured tourist. For bird watching go to Koycegiz Lake and for Thermal Spas, to Sultaniye. An organized 3 hour day trip to Bodrum is worth the effort with many other spectacular day trips including Pummakkale for the healing waters and Olympos for the atmospheric perpetual mountain fires. Available locally are hiking, swimming, snorkelling, horse riding, sailing, canoeing, fishing, diving, river rafting and paragliding!
