Selimiye is a lovely, quiet & picturesque seaside village that remains the epitome of an authentic Turkish summer holiday. Village life meanders along at wonderfully slow pace, with the locals out on their fishing boats or escaping the summer heat in one of the tea houses dotted along the main road. The village follows a natural curve around Selimiye Bay, with a selection of wonderful seafood restaurants and shops along the waterfront. Set on the hill overlooking the village, Villa Gelincik makes use of its natural terraces to provide a wonderful outdoor sunbathing area, covered terrace with dining table and couches, bbq, a sun-drenched infinity swimming pool, shaded gazebo areas and century old olive trees to snooze your days away under. The private pool is 40 m2 (5mt x 8mt) in size, with a consistent depth of 1.60 mts. There are over 200 books available for reading, so you'll never be short of a good read! Fatma gives the villa a daily light clean, so you can enjoy the villa in style!

Enjoy your Selimiye adventure in this unspoilt Turkish fishing village where small, fisherman’s cottages can still be found on the harbour with their white-washed walls and lots of potted plants in discarded, olive oil containers, typically Mediterranean. The village is cradled by two small bays that lead into a larger bay and peninsular with majestic mountains dropping into the sea.
Walking along the harbour you will encounter small restaurants and bars and the occasional shop selling curiosities and the village offers a good selection of restaurants. The delightful, slow pace of life and relaxed atmosphere is ideal for those looking to get away from it all and is perfect for couples and families wishing to experience an authentic taste of Turkish life. You can still see half a dozen or so cottage industry Gulet shipyards building craft as they did hundreds of years ago. Enjoy a day cruise on holidays to Selimiye, sailing along the coast and swim or dive in the clear turquoise waters, or, if you prefer, the surrounding countryside is ideal for walkers and hikers especially in the cooler months.
