The villa is ideal for families and couples alike. No expense has been spared in furnishing it from the comfortable sofas to the king-size bed in the master bedroom. Sliding doors lead onto the large terrace where you can relax in the evening on the swinging chairs sipping a chilled wine and look over the illuminated swimming pool to the lights of the town beyond.
We have a large selection of DVDs including kids viewing. If you would rather not watch TV there is a selection of board games and books. Wireless internet has recently been installed and we've also recently installed an iPod docking station so bring yours along and listen to your favourite tunes whilst relaxing (this will also charge your iPod, so no need for heavy chargers in your luggage!!) Upstairs in the master bedroom we have a set of binoculars which will enhance the already fantastic views. Great for budding astonomers as well!!
I have recently purchased a baby cot which is ideal for babies up to 2 years, it will also double as a play pen as it is soft and comfortable.

Just a stones throw from some small local shops or 15 minutes walk from the large supermarket (Migros)
There is a large pool and a children's splash pool surrounded by a sunbathing area (sunbeds included). I have recently bought 3 extra sunbeds just in case all the poolside ones are taken. I will also be supplying 2 high quality Italian made mountain bikes for you explore the area.
There is a local representative living nearby who is easily contactable and always ready to help with any queries or maintenance issues. He speaks perfect English and is a personal friend of mine.
Upon request I will arrange a welcome pack for your arrival (milk, fruit, cheese, bread, water, wine, beers..anything you like really!)
The Turquoise Coast/Lycia region
The Datça – or to give it its Ottoman name, Resadiye – peninsula is renowned throughout Turkey for its natural beauty and climate. Strabon of Cappadocia (56BC – 21AD), one of the first philosophers to relate climate to health, said, “God sends his subjects to whom he wants to give long and healthy lives to Datça…” We can’t promise you that but we can certainly guarantee an unforgettable experience!
The road from Marmaris follows the spine of the peninsula with dramatic and panoramic views of the Aegean on one side and the Mediterranean on the other. The beach at Ovabuku just 20 minutes drive away is the best beach in Turkey according to the Guardian.... http://www.guardian.co.uk/travel/2010/jun/22/turkey-top-10-beaches
Picturesque coves with crystal clear waters are spread along the route leading to the harbour town of Datça.
Datça has a very Turkish feel with relatively few foreign visitors. A wide choice of restaurants is spread between the two natural harbours and the overall environment allows you to get a real feel for traditional Turkish life.
Pine forests are intermingled with oak, myrtle, gum and carob trees. Almond trees, olive and citrus groves, grapevines and all manner of herbaceous plants are there to be discovered as you explore the mountains, valleys and plains of the peninsula.
The region is particularly historically rich as it was one of the most important commercial and cultural centres throughout the Aegean and eastern Mediterranean from the times of Ancient Greece through to the Byzantium Period.
The ancient site of Knidos was the centre of all this activity.
The villages of the Datça Peninsula provide the ideal location for those looking to escape completely from modern-day tourism as we know it. There’s plenty for the active to experience, but it’s also a great place to just relax.
Datca is less than an hours drive from the bustling resort of Marmaris but the pace of life here is slower and more relaxing. The locals are really friendly and welcoming. The town has plenty of great shops and restaurants (especially if you're keen on trying the local cuisine). Our personal favourite is the new restaurant at the historic renovated windmill just outside the town. They make all their own food and I can assure you that you won't be dissapointed.
There is a great beach beside the harbour in the town area and plenty more coves and beaches just a few minutes drive or a bus ride away. Boat trips are available to the nearby Greek Isles, the large resort of Bodrum or to the ancient ruins of Knidos at the end of the peninsula. There are sailing schools and diving clubs available along with a great new waterpark/restaurant just 10 minutes drive away. Hiking is a popular pastime in the mountainous terrain.
Every Saturday there is a large market in the town which is a must for bargain hunters.
