Description

Almond Tree House is an imposing stone built private villa on the Bodrum Peninsula, located in the village of Gökcebel. The country farmhouse style, spaciousness and comfort coupled with a large swimming pool make it an excellent holiday choice.

Featured as a Top 10 Villa Holiday in Turkey by the Telegraph Newspaper

Almond Tree House has been built with thick stone walls, stone tiled floors and has been traditionally finished with dark wood doors and windows yet this is an immensely light and airy house. Every room in the house has French doors, each opening onto a different area with its' own characteristics. The entrance terrace is cool and shady and with comfortable rattan seating is an ideal place to take a little respite from the sun. The covered dining terrace overlooks the pool and garden and the upper bedroom terrace provides lovely views over the village towards the sea, both terraces benefit from glorious evening sun. However, it's the roof terrace

The covered dining terrace overlooks the pool and garden and the upper bedroom terrace provides lovely views over the village towards the sea, both terraces benefit from glorious evening sun. However, it's the roof terrace with fantastic cushioned seating areas that provides the perfect place for early evening drinks with a magnificent sunset and sea views.

The villa has been immaculately finished and furnished and with great attention to detail. The kitchen area with brightly painted cupboards and dresser is cheerful and inviting, the sitting room with big squashy sofas is comfortable and appealing, all the bedrooms are spacious and cool and the bathrooms with their mosaic travertine tiles are both practical and pretty!

Outside, the fabulous mosaic tiled pool is surrounded by sunbathing terraces and there is a lawned area. At night the pool and the garden can be floodlit whilst on the roof terrace the lanterns are lit and with the star filled sky it creates a truly magical setting

This is a perfect family villa but also recommended for 2 couples holidaying together due to the bedroom/bathroom configuration.

The Turkish Aegean Coast region

Bodrum Peninsula's northern coast
Upper Gkebel village is delightful, hidden from all but the most curious, this is a charming, traditional village looking towards the sea. Small flower covered whitewashed houses line the crooked little streets and there is a backdrop of green hills dotted with a number of very stylish villas and houses.Many of the villagers seem to own a donkey or a cow and it's no surprise to see them out walking their animals! The single village shop sells day to day requirements and there's a small weekly market in the village centre, additionally there are a number of large supermarkets on the road to Yalikavak. Gkebel main claim to fame has to be the unique garden restaurant in the village centre Havva Hanim - a gem of a place serving a traditional Turkish breakfast with ingredients provided by Havva's chickens and cows and flourishing garden!

It's just 3 kilometres drive to the nearby town of Yalikavak a favourite destination of the city Turks and in the months of July and August visiting minor celebrities cause a certain sophistication to descend on the town. The town has a small harbour with a handsome 300 year old windmill to one side. Restaurants line the sea front and in the streets running back from the sea, grocery shops and fresh fruit and vegetable shops nestle alongside an art gallery housed in an old water cistern and a kilim showroom in a former olive oil press. The striking Mosque with its two minarets stands on the hillside and watches over the village. Thursday is market day and locals from nearby villages throng to town to stock up with fresh fruit and vegetables. Enjoy hand-picked citrus from local orchards and pass the time of day over a few cups of strong Turkish coffee sitting under the shady plane trees after which the area is named.

There is a beach in town but there is a plentiful selection of public beaches and beach clubs in the area. On the coast road towards Gm?lk is the smart new yacht marina, Palmarina with elegant shops, restaurants, bars, cafes and yachts to match! A little further on there is a great selection of seaside fish restaurants. There are numerous walks in the area; one of the best with spectacular views must be from the small settlement of Geris perched at the top of a mountain and only a few kilometres from Yalikavak centre. A local hike may find you stumbling across derelict windmills, the deserted Greek village of Sandima, Lycian rock tombs and even a temple dedicated to Zeus, a perfect picnic spot.

Yalikavak

Bodrum was once Halicarnassus, famed for its colossal mausoleum begun by the egocentric ruler Mausolus, an earthquake toppled this wonder of the ancient world and the Crusaders used much of the masonry to build their castle, situated between two horseshoe bays. A visit to the magnificent 15th century castle with ramparts, leafy courtyards and imaginative archaeological exhibitions featuring many finds from shipwrecks dating back to the 11th century BC is highly recommended.

In the atmospheric shopping streets you'll find local handicrafts such as copper goods, intricately painted ceramics, carpets and kilims competing with street stalls selling “genuine fake watches”, designer name clothing, fabulous leather clothing and bags, natural sponges, jewellery shops abound offering a huge array of beautiful designs, fabrics, famed Turkish towelling, boxes of sweet pistachio filled Turkish delight, pastry shops with a tempting selection of sweet and savoury, just be sure to take enough bags to carry back your purchases!
If you have ever considered Scuba Diving then Bodrum is most certainly the place to take the plunge, deep blue water with high visibility crowded with huge living sponges, octopus, scarlet star fish and even tropical coloured fish attracts beginners and experienced divers who rate it very highly.

Vacationing in a private villa on the Bodrum Peninsula allows the opportunity to sample some great dining out. In Bodrum town you can choose one of the elegant and sophisticated restaurants overlooking the marina or for an experience try the hectic and bustling Fish Market, buy your fish direct from the fish stalls and have it cooked in the nearby restaurants. It's great fun with authentic live music and impromptu displays of Turkish dancing; a real slice of Turkish life! The choice of bars is extensive, some loud and blaring, others refined and chic, there is something to suit all age groups. Jade Jagger has opened a restaurant inside the world famous Halikarnas Discotheque; set right on the sea's edge and landscaped like a Greek amphitheatre. For the real thing the recently restored 4th century BC amphitheatre overlooking the sea and the castle hosts some spectacular concerts throughout the summer.

Basing your villa holiday on the peninsula allows great access to numerous nearby historical sites, Euromos with it's temple of Zeus, said to have been built in honour of a visit by Hadrian, Iassus, perfectly positioned on the water's edge in the Bay of Güllük and inhabited since the Bronze Age, Heracleia by Lake Bafa where Selene the moon goddess fell in love with Endymion the shepherd on Mount Latmos, Didyma with its marvellous Temple of Apollo, Miletus, Priene, Stratoniceia, Pecin Kale and a little further away the exceptional site of Ephesus, the list is endless, every day of your holiday can be a journey into the spectacular past of Asia Minor.

“Still Number One in Yalikavak”

Reviewed 10 Nov 2016

We were back in Gokcebel, Yalikavak after a long winter. It was our second summer in Almond Tree House and we started enjoying the magical environment immediately after entering the main gate.There is nothing to add to my last review, it was all perfect. And a few words for Jane, the manager: Thank you very much for your attentive and sincere assistance. It was a pleasure for my family and I to chat with you in the patio. Please say hello to your kind and always smiling husband for us. We hope to see you again.

“A Matchless Experience”

Reviewed 30 Aug 2016

We were back in Almond Tree House last July and again enjoyed every single minute we had there. The Gokcebel village is a real gem very tranquil yet very close to Yalikavak which makes the villa a perfect place to relax while knowing that you're so close to the vibrant nightlife in Palmarina in Yalikavak. We would like to thank Jane, the manager, and his polite husband for their being very responsive to all our needs. Definitely recommended.

It was very nice to have you stay with us once again. Thank you for your review.
