The Olive Grove Apartment is part of a quiet, private complex where the discerning holidaymaker can enjoy a relaxing time with like-minded fellow holidaymakers and owners. It is in possibly the most desirable location in the bay of Turunç and at nearly an acre in area, the site has a spacious feel with meandering paths, stone wall terracing, and well laid out gardens. There are sixteen apartments carefully arranged around what is easily the largest swimming pool in Turunç. The village center and beach are only an easy few minutes' walk away along virtually traffic free roads.
The Apartment is privately owned and located in a quiet elevated position. There are beautiful panoramic views from the windows and balconies sweeping over Turunç and the bay to one side and to Olive Groves and Pine tree clad mountains to the other. It is located to the side of the pool with clear views of the pool area from the lounge balcony, while privacy is maintained on its ground floor balcony by its slightly elevated position and the banana trees which surround the pool. It is ideal for families and friends to share, while the lounge balcony provides wonderful views over Turunç and is an ideal place for a couple to enjoy a glass of wine at sundown.

|Further details outdoors|
The crystal clear water in the large swimming pool is level with the surrounding tiled area which provides ample space for the sun loungers and wicker parasol shades. It is in a central location within the garden area which is terraced by natural stone built walls. The garden and pools are raised relative to the adjacent road and therefore enjoys a feeling of privacy. Tiled and stone paved pathways lead through the gardens each having benefit of the surrounding views. The adjacent road has very little traffic and provides plenty of space for car parking.
Bed linen, bath and hand towels are provided, together with ironing facilities and a hairdryer. A full-time caretaker, Ali, looks after the site and will be happy to help in the unlikely event of any problems. The apartment will, of course, be spotlessly clean upon arrival with all the beds made up and ready for use etc. but should it be required, reasonably priced additional services are available such as mid-holiday cleaning, the changing of bed linen, and welcome packs etc.
The apartment is non-smoking and there are a number of sensible standard conditions which are applied to the booking. Details will be provided prior to booking confirmation.
Turkey is an amazing place with something for everyone. The nearby resorts of Içmeler and Marmaris are easily reached by car, bus, or water taxi, while a short drive or boat ride away also leads to beautiful quiet bays in idyllic locations for lazy days away from it all.
The area around Turunç is pine clad and the mountain road leading down into the village gives magnificent views over the Bay. Such good use in fact that layby's have been provided for visitors to stop and take photographs.
A day's outing takes you to the magnificent world-famous Roman ruins of Ephesus, while another takes you to the Pamukkale (meaning "cotton castle" in Turkish) with its amazing terraces of white carbonate minerals left by the flowing water key. Trips can easily be arranged from agents within Turunç, or if boat trips are more to your liking, day boats are available for hire in the marina.
Located in a beautiful bay close to Içmeler and Marmaris, Turunç is a picture perfect holiday location well on its way to becoming the place to holiday in the Sun on Turkey's Mediterranean coast. Ride down the winding pine clad mountain road into the bay and you will, like many others who have travelled that road, feel compelled to stop to take pictures from the lay-by's provided for that purpose. When you arrive in the village, you won't fail to be struck by the tranquil atmosphere and easy going feel to the Restaurants and Shops which remain free from the hassle of some of the other resorts.
Once a small fishing village, Turunç has grown as tourism has developed but, due to the vision of the local town planners, it is destined to become a resort for the discerning holiday maker. It is a small resort and is one of the most beautiful along the Aegean coast. Crystal, calm, blue water caress a sandy beach while to the side of the bay there is a small harbour which provides moorings for private yachts, day boats and water taxis to Içmeler and Marmaris. The Blue Flag awarded sandy beach is fronted by restaurants and, rather than an adjacent road with the noise of passing traffic etc. there is a path which runs the length of the bay.
There is a traditional local market held every Monday in Turunç which is a smaller more relaxed version of those held on different days in Içmeler and Marmaris. You can pick up some great bargains in a relaxed atmosphere and barter with stall holders who conduct their business in a manner more suited to the village.
On the high streets there is a selection of relaxed shops, restaurants, and bars. Relax in the Tea Garden under the shelter of fig trees or take a trip to the local resorts by taxi via the taxi rank, water taxi or by one of the half hourly buses. In the evening, the high street is closed to general traffic so the roadside restaurants can be enjoyed in full in a family safe environment. With little traffic, and real village atmosphere, it makes for a wonderfully secluded destination.
