Olive Grove Apartments are made up of three blocks but are arranged so that no apartment is overlooked. The site is over one acre in size and with its stone wall terraces and well laid out gardens , it has a spacious feel.
Its special feature is the pool and sun terrace which is the centrepiece to the apartments. The pool , which is large (over 16 metres long and 10 metres wide ) has a lovely paved area around the pool which acts as a sun deck. As well as parasols over the sunbeds, there is a wealth of dappled shade to be had from the many verdant banana and oleander trees that surround the pool.
A short walk down the hill and you'll find yourselves in the main street of the village and the seafront. The beach is sand and pebble and there is a pretty beachwalk , lined with rustic cafes and restaurants.
The Turquoise Coast/Lycia region
This part of south west Turkey is famous for its "green mountains" unlike other areas of Turkey and the Greek islands where the mountains become stark and bare in the summer months. In this area there are lush pine forests all over the peaks of the Taurus mountains.
There are many wonderful tours in the nearby area.
The Gokova gulf , (about 45 kilomtetres away ) a 60 kilometre National Park. There are many beautiful bays, islands and mountains that reach 3000 metres. There are various boat tours in this area, one to Cleopatra's island, a tiny island with white sand , with many Roman ruins and an ancient legend about it being a present to her from Marc Anthony.
There are agents in Turunc who will arrange tours to Dalyan,(approx. 90 kilometres away) boat trips that weave their way lazily through the reed beds, down to the sea , with ancient burial tombs carved in the rocks above and arriving at the famous Giant Turtle beach.
Further afield there are tours to Ephesus, one of the greatest archaeological sites in the world, a once massive city and port built by Alexander the Great.
Pammukale (Cotton Castle) is truly a sight to behold. Huge white terraces of calcium pools cling to the hillside - the result of the hot springs' constant flow. Visit the local hotel for lunch then dive into their hot pool and find part of an ancient city beneath your feet!
If you don't want to go on long trips try Datca a picturesque town and little harbour , with an quaint old town - Eski Datca, fabulous little Turkish food cafes at wonderfully cheap prices . It is about 60 kilometres from Marmaris with a breathtaking road up and over the mountains and when you get to the highest peak you can see the Aegean sea on one side and the Mediterranean sea on the other. Regular bus service to and from Marmaris. Ask in the village whether they do day trips.
Locally there are boat trips everyday to other lovely bays, where beach BBQs are included in the price. Kumlubuk, Ciftlik all offer lovely beaches and unspoilt charm.
Some of the restaurants and hotels have a Turkish night with orchestras, belly dancers and folklore dancers.
There are hourly taxi boats and mini buses to the main town of Marmaris. Our guests love to go shopping there in the Grand Bazaar where fine carpets, gold and silver , leather goods and a million souvenirs are on sale!
While you are there take a stroll around the picturesque old town and the little castle, the Harbour and the Marina. If you want to let your hair down go to Bar Street, where the established Turkish bars with live music still thrive alongside the clamour and boom of the many bars and discos there. Some though just prefer to get dressed "to kill" and dine in the fine Harbour restaurants and watch the world go round.
Nearer to Turunc you can visit Icmeler (pronounced Ichmeylair) a small but busy resort 2 bays away where there is every type of water sport available including para-sailing, a pleasant if somewhat crowded beach but with beautiful views across the Marmaris Bay and a number of large hotels who have lovely bars and restaurants in luxurious gardens.
