For those wanting to get out and about, the town of Çeşme (10 kms) with its castle, harbour and shops is a good place to visit for shopping and strolling by the boats anchored in the harbour.

The Aegean area is also rich in archaeological sites. The magnificent site of Ephesus is two hours drive and definitely recommended for a day-trip while the nearby site of Erithrea lies just half an hour away near the seaside village of Ildir.

This location has something for everyone, offering peaceful days by the sea or pool, water sports, thermal hot springs, visits to bustling Turkish seaside towns, pretty villages for shopping, strolling, dining and night-life and a wealth of historic sites to see.

Location description from owner

The Turkish Aegean Coast region

The Çeşme area is located on a peninsula on Turkey's Western coast on the Aegean sea. It has a typical Mediterranean climate. The summer season begins in April and continues until the end of October. Winters are mild and it's possible to swim in the hot thermal spring water all year round.

Cesme is an hour's drive from Izmir, Turkey's second-largest city, with its museums, shops and seaside promenades and restaurants. If you plan to use local transport, frequent buses and local shared taxis (Dolmuş) go to Izmir

Ephesus, Turkey's most famous archaeological site, is about two hours drive and a must for a day trip. Extensive remains of the amphitheatre, temples, library, streets and houses have been uncovered. In Selcuk - the City of St John - the citadel and Basilica of St John and an archaeological museum are to be found and after visiting the historical sites visitors can wander along the picturesque winding streets of the town and browse in the bazaars. Other important historical sites in the region are the house of the Virgin Mary and further afield, Pergamon and Aphrodisias.

Cesme

The Çeşme area has something of everything for all ages.

For those who enjoy the water, Venus bay, just a few minutes walk from the villa is a safe and sheltered sandy-bottomed bay with both shallow and deep entry points. Ilica beach 2 kms from the villa, is the best soft white-sand beach in the area and stretches for 1.5 kms along Ilica bay.

The waters are shallow and at points warmed by hot springs. Just past the beach there is a sailing school at Yildiz Burun (Star point) where you can also soak in the hot thermal waters of natural pools by the sea. Scuba diving is possible and there is a scuba diving school located at Altin Yunus hotel (the Golden Dolphin Hotel) between Ilica and Çeşme.

Many restaurants and bars are to be found including Altin Kapi (The Golden Door), Doner and Grill restaurant, at Şantiye, on the edge of Ilica, 2 kms from the villa, and in Ilica itself, Dost Pide, Çeşme's most famous Pide restaurant. There are numerous local fish restaurants to be found in nearby Şifne.

For a touch of sophistication, cocktail hour on the Sheraton hotel's pier on Ilica beach is an unforgettable experience. If you're not watching your weight the delicious cakes served on the terrace at the Golden Dolphin are not to be missed.

There are more hot thermal springs at Şifne 1.5 kms from the villa. There are two large thermal outdoor swimming pools and an indoor thermal pool at Şifne thermal hotel and you can also enter the sea here. This facility is open all year round.

Alaçati, a charming inland village with windmills, old stone houses, typical of the area, art galleries and boutiques has become a favourite spot for al-fresco dining in the many cafes, bars and restaurants. It's 5 kms from the villa. It's very lively, especially on Friday and Saturday evenings when locals drive out from Izmir to enjoy the atmosphere. It has a market on Saturdays where you can buy fresh local produce as well as antiques and local crafts. Alaçati is a famous surfing centre and has several windsurfing schools clustered around Yumru Bay near the Yacht marina.

Ayayorgi ,a beautiful bay not far from Cesme boasts several popular beachclubs, some laid back for chilling out, some more geared to the young crowd. These beachclubs become real hot spots at night and you can dance till dawn beneath the stars and listen to concerts staged regularly through the summer.

Dalyan Koy, a fishing village near Cesme with a peaceful yacht marina is the place to go for it's famous fish and meze restaurants. Try Korfez, our favourite or Emin's Place.

The town of Cesme, 10 kms from Venus Villa has many restaurants where you can enjoy fish and raki or wine and delicious meze dishes as well as pide and hot toasted sandwiches called Kumru. Along the sea front you can join the boats offering tours of the coast and local islands.

The boats stop along the way for swimming in local bays and provide tasty lunches. Cesme's castle dates back to the defeat of the Genoese by the Ottomans in 1566 and there is also a Caravanserai. There are plenty of shops selling carpets, leather and silver and gold jewellery and shops offering Turkish delight and dried fruit and nuts to take home.

Ildir, once the ancient city of Erytrai is about 20 kms from the villa. Today it is a quiet fishing village with some local fish restaurants and if you are fit enough to climb up to the ruins, you will be rewarded with stunning views of the sea and islands.

You could also take a longer day-trip to Chios, a Greek island just offshore. Boats leave every day from Cesme harbour.

“perfect vaccation”

Reviewed 21 Sep 2015

Venus bay villa were even better than the pictures. We had a wonderful stay, the children loved it. We didnt even want to leave. Felt like home. We will definetly stay at Venus bay villa again.

“Lovely villa with stunning sunset views”

Reviewed 21 Aug 2015

The villa lived up to expectations - very large inside and worked well for us as a family (3 children in late teens/early twenties). Everything was clean, modern and in working order. The views from the terrace and balcony were wonderful, and we hold many memories of the stunning sunsets. The local area was great with a choice of beaches (one within walking distance) and there was plenty to visit and do - the castle in Cesme, boat trips, and Ephesus was a 2 hour drive away. The villa was private, peaceful and was in a quiet residential area.

“An amazing villa - probably the best you can find in Cesme”

Reviewed 8 Oct 2013

This was our second summer in Cesme at a villa. After a long search, we booked Venus Bay Villa and arrived there after a three-week holiday in Bodrum. None of us had expected such a beautiful and elegant property, we loved every single detail - everything was spot on. The property owner, Mrs. Barbara, has done everything for her guests to experience a fantastic holiday. The pool area and the green garden surrounding the villa were all perfect. The beach club at five minutes distance called Leika Beach Club offered us the best sea we have ever seen, including Bodrum. Besides, the villa was a good value for what we have paid. If you are seeking for a place tranquil and relaxing and at the same time so close to the city center of Cesme and Alacati, don't miss the chance to stay at Venus Bay Villa. I do recommend it for families and large groups. Thank you Barbara, we hope we will be there next summer once again.

“Home from home in Cesme”

Reviewed 3 Oct 2013

My husband and I and two adult children stayed in this villa for just under two weeks with other guests coming to stay from time to time. The house is spotlessly clean, well designed and well furnished with several excellent sized bedrooms, a large and open ground floor which was spacious but allowed good interaction between everyone throughout the house wherever they were. The garden was well kept and had a reasonably sized and sole use swimming pool which again was extremely clean. The property was located away from any significant noise but - with a car which is essential - was within easy (5-15 minutes) reach of all the key places whether for eating, swimming, surfing, serious shopping etc. A local shop one minute away more than provided for daily food and household needs. While there the small access road in front of the house was being relaid which was a nuisance but beyond the owner's knowledge or control and having been done shouldn't be a problem again. All in all an excellent family house but extremely comfortable too for a couple. It felt like home!

“Excellent stay”

Reviewed 2 Oct 2013

Great vacations in a high class villa. Very good equiped villa, 5 sleeping rooms, big kitchen, nice garden, nice pool, 100 meters to a quiet restaurant,

“Perfect villa with a stunning seaview at a quiet location”

Reviewed 20 Jun 2012

We stayed with our family and friends several times at the Venus Bay Villa. The villa is spacious, very well taken care of, clean and fully equiped. There are several good Turkish restaurants in Ilica, Cesme, e.g. Altin Kapi and Dost Pide. A car is recommended, although in the shop nearby you can buy bread, icecreams and groceries and you can order some nice fresh food. Our children loved the garden and the pool. Please note that the pool is free accessible from the garden and therefore not childproof in case you travel with small children.
