Email we got from Julia, who stayed in June 2010 in the villa, one of our first guests:
“We have just returned from a fantastic holiday with our two kids at the authentic VillaOlivio in Mesudiye Datca. It was a perfect base for discovering this so far unspoilt part of Turkey, as well as being really attractive, clean and comfortable - and providing everything we needed, including an amazing swimming pool and marvelous views! Our kids enjoyed the pool all day, and also the nice beach nearby was a great place to stay. We were worried about the villa didn’t have an airco, but this was not needed (as Jeroen told us before). The thick stone walls keep its pleasantly cool in the house. The first days we eat around 19.00 on the big veranda and we found out the wasps are active at that time. We solved this by eating an hour later, this solved this little “problem”. The Datca Peninsula lived up to all our expectations it was fun driving through spectacular scenery to find quiet little bays and get really off the beaten track. Datca town was lovely and didn't feel too touristy - the large market on Saturday was a particularly friendly and colourful experience. The little authentic villages are really worthwhile to visit (eski-datca, hizersah etc), and the village people are very friendly and helpful! Thanks again Jeroen and Ebru for answering all our questions upfront, and Zafer, the local responsible guy for villaolivio, for helping us with every question we had! We come back for sure”.

We were looking for a holiday place next to the Mediterranean sea, for our family of five. We don't like very much crowded places, and hotels with 400 rooms, but rather places where we can live amongst local people, and try to get a feel of their life.
We found Villa Olivio via the Home Exchange website. I immediatelly felt that the villa could meet our expectations, even if it was not yet finished to renovate. Thanks to the detailed explanations and the great website of Jeroen, we were able to get a real feeling of the place and we felt confident we would spend a great holiday in Villa Olivio.
And it has been at the level of our expectations. The house has been renovated with a lot of taste, keeping the atmosphere of the ancient olive oil mill, while offering all modern commodities. The outside patio is the place where we stayed most of the day when we were at the house, playing games with the kids or reading books. The pool is just perfect, always available for a swin, day or night. We enjoyed also very much laying on the sun beds at night, watching the stars in the sky...
The nature in Mesudye is unspoilt, the water in the various beaches is crystal clear, and I hope it will stay like this for many years to come.
Last but not least, the people we met in Mesudye were all friendly and always welcoming. We will always remember this moment, when we were walking in the village, and we were invited by a group of old men to have a "tchai" whith them at the local "cafe". We spent a good half hour talking to each other, with the five words of turkish we knew ! I will also never forget Zafer, the "house keeper", who has solution for every problem or wish we could think of.
We spent a great time in Villa Olivio, and I have already shared my experience with many friends. I would not be surprized that some of them decide for a vacation in Villa Olivio in the near future.

The Datca Peninsula:
The untouched coast, off the main tourist routes, Datca appears to be more like an oasis; a beautiful, quiet haven to peace and tranquillity. One of Turkey’s most unspoilt spots, boasting lovely vistas, rich flora, fresh air and crystal clean waters. Those who enjoy exploring and hiking will be surprised by the variety of nature and richness of the beautiful undiscovered place of the Datca Peninsula. This virtual island remains a wild and heavily wooded frontier region, famous for its three Turkish B's: Balik, Bal and Badem; fish, honey and almonds. Datca is a small town of around five thousand there is a lively harbor set in stunning scenery whose relaxed happy atmosphere will captivate you immediately. The entire region is a combination of traditional Turkish friendliness and hospitality, tranquility, sophistication and good fun. You can choose to seek any or all of these qualities as the mood takes. Discover the real Turkey, unspoilt and away from the crowds.
There are numerous bays, some sandy, some pebbly but all with crystal clear water and many ideal for snorkelling. Karaincir is a bay - just 12km from Datca town it has a splendid golden sandy beach and calm, shallow waters.
Driving through the small villages scattered around the peninsula you will be surprised to find how traditional life continues. If you prefer to explore by boat there are boat trips available from the harbor calling at many of the bays unreachable by road, you can even take a day trip to the Greek island of Simi. The nearest major town is Marmaris, a one hour drive through the mountains, the scenery is spectacular and at points you can see the sea on both sides of the peninsula. Bodrum is a ferry ride away and there is a daily ferry boat taking two hours.
On Saturday the villagers assemble in Datca for market day affording the opportunity to buy some of the best local produce. Datca is famed for its almonds, honey and thyme and something you cannot buy in the market - the air! In ancient times it was known as "magic air", due to the north wind that blows in the summer there is very little humidity and this is considered to be of great benefit for some medical complaints!
