Banana Valley Villa
Villa | 1 bedrooms | sleeps 3
Banana Valley Villa is a custom built and luxurious architect-designed cottage situated in the rolling hills just outside the picturesque resort town of Marmaris, a historic and undiscovered jewel located in the corner of Turkey where the Mediterranean and Aegean Seas meet. The Villas offer the discerning holidaymaker the perfect place to relax and unwind in a tranquil and beautiful location where privacy and serenity is assured.
Banana Valley Villa has its own large and totally private swimming pools ( 8x5, 1.4m deep) with a wide pool side area with teak furniture and large umbrellas, perfect for sun-lounging in peace or enjoying a drink after dinner. Additionally, the villa has unheated an outdoor jacuzzi. Situated on a side of a valley, the villa offers magnificent views across the pine-clad forest.
Throughout the Villa all furnishings is of the highest quality and where appropriate are made of teak or wrought iron and are handmade by skilled local craftsmen. For example, Hüseyin Usta, the blacksmith we used to make the iron furnishings, is a famous ferre forge artist and craftsman from Mugla, the capital of the province and has received many awards and much praise for his art and craftsmanship. All materials used in the Villa are locally sourced, whether they are hand woven Turkish cotton materials or traditional hand woven kilim carpets made from locally spun wool. The Villa is fully air-conditioned with cold and warm air available to ensure your total comfort.

The Turquoise Coast/Lycia region
Turkeys long peninsula coast lines both the Aegean and the Mediterranean Sea.
The answer to the question “where do the Mediterranean Sea and the Aegean Sea meet” is Marmaris. It is not just the sea and the nature that attract people to Marmaris from all over the world, nor even the rich history reaching from past civilizations to today. There must be something more. Historian and expert Fernand Braudel in his book named “Mediterranean” says: “What is this Mediterranean? All of a thousand things. Not one landscape, countless landscapes. Not one sea, many seas following each other. Not one civilization, many civilizations piled on each other.”
Marmaris is a place sheltering many of these landscapes, seas and civilizations. The old trade ships are replaced by yachts with colourful sails decorating the modern marinas and by comfortable passenger ships. Airport traffic is heavy. Tens of thousands of people from numerous countries, different nations come for their vacations.
The most important building in the centre of Marmaris is the castle. The castle was first constructed by Ionians. The preserved form today was built by Ottomans in 1522. During the First World War, it was damaged by cannonball fire opened from a French war ship. A museum in the castle was restored between 1980 and1990.
Another Ottoman building in the city is Hafza Sultan Caravanserai built in 1545. Seven small rooms and one big room of the Caravanserai are allocated to gift shops. The historical shops in the market place which used to sell second hand goods are still in the shopping centre of the city.
Marmaris is a large tourism resort with a selection of accommodation starting from small, quaint pensions to big holiday villages and 5-star hotels. Restaurants offer all kinds of cuisine from Chinese, French, Indian and Italian to traditional Turkish cuisine, with many using the blended delicacy of natural herbs grown in the fast changing climate from the Mediterranean shores to the mountains.
The local environment is suitable for any kind of leisure activity, from walks through quiet, secluded forests while the close proximity to the sea means that you can swim, scuba dive, jet-ski, fish, paraglide, yacht and mess about on the water to your heart's content, while for the more energetic we can arrange mountain bike hire; tell us what you want to do and we'll arrange it. The warm sunny climate guarantees sun nearly all the year round and in the summer months any depth of sun tan you require is assured!

Quelle surprise après avoir ouvert le portail "Banana Valley"!!!! Encore mieux que sur les photos...le lieu est magnifique, calme et en pleine nature.La villa est belle et avec tout le confort. La piscine est nettoyée tous les jours et elle est bien équipée en transat et en parasol. Aucun vis a vis avec les 2 autres Villas. Eeva qui nous a accueillie est très conviviale et de très bons conseils pour passer un excellent séjour sur Marmaris et ses alentours.Un véhicule est fortement conseillé.

"Olive Grove Villa"
My wife and two adult daughters stayed at the Olive Grove Villa for 2 weeks in July and absolutely loved it! The villa has an elevated position with great views over the forest, a gorgeous place to relax. There are three villas on the site, but unless you crane your neck you can't see them or the other guests. The pool and Jacuzzi are great; and at a temperature that you could loll in for hours; yet big enough such that you could have a proper swim. The villa itself felt quite new and was spotless, well air conditioned, light and airy. Marmaris is about 10-15 mins by car; the old town has all the restaurants, bars and clubs you will ever need, at a quality that was much higher than I was expecting. There is a large TESCO and bakery (well worth a visit) about 7 minutes away, with some small bars and simple restaurants. So, if you are looking for the best of both worlds; total peace and quiet at the villa, with all the excitement of Marmaris, then this is the place for you! Special thank you to Eeva, who was on hand during our visit, who made us feel so welcome and immediately addressed any minor issues we had.
