About the property

picturesqe Ottoman villa with unique architecture, close to the beach

Our Manor is a declaration of love to the bay of Gökova. Resting between lemon and pomegranate trees, it is just a few minutes´ walk away from Akyaka´s marvellous sand beach. In 1982 the little masterpiece by the well-known architect Nail Cakirhan won the Aga Khan- Award for extraordinary architecture. The mansion’s heart is an impressive two-floors -tall wood panelled living hall with a traditional Persian octagonal floor plan. We invite you to spend your precious spare time in your exclusive “own” mansion with oriental atmosphere. Enjoy your breakfast in the morning sun on the wonderful terrace or relax in front of the fireside, comfortably lying on pillows and having a glass of tea or mocca.

Experience the ambience of 'Arabian Nights' and enjoy your holidays in the way of the ottoman pashas.

Gökova - heaven´s valley: In the bay of Gökova, the “heaven´s valley”, the sun kisses the sea. Surrounded by green hills, the turquoise coloured Aegean Sea enters deep into the heartland. Sea and land meet in in an abundance of smaller and bigger bays in front of vast towering mountains in the north and gentle hills in the south. At its head, the bay of Gökova unfolds into a wide marshland plain. At the base of the mountains, slightly above this plain, which is covered with little meandering rivers, the picturesque village of Akyaka is located.

There the gentle waves break against a small beach with fine golden sand. Fresh spring water runs from the mountains into the sea, reducing the sea´s salinity and providing pleasant refreshment during the hot summer.

Akyaka - our small resort: Akyaka is an insider tip for seekers of recreation. The village (approx. 5000 inhabitants) with its many wooden houses built in the Ottoman style is not like most of the other Turkish holiday villages cast in concrete and bursting at the seams. Situated in a picturesque landscape it has kept its very intimate and natural character. But Akyaka provides all amenities necessary for an easygoing holiday stay, from medical care, shopping facilities and excellent restaurants to nightlife. Even the Turkish prime minister and other celebreties sometimes come here to relax in the quiet bay of Gökova. In spite of this prominent recommendation, most of the tourists seem to prefer the all-inclusive- holiday camps. Fortunately! The small community of Akyaka fans really appreciates this. For those who feel a desire for a busy city with buzzing nightlife, the city of Marmaris is just a 20 minute drive away.

How to get there & organisational issues: Please do not hesitate to contact us in case you have any questions or needs.

For getting to Akyaka there are 3 airports:

Dalaman, distance appr. 70 km;

Bodrum, distance appr. 130 km;

Izmir, distance appr. 250 km;

Onward journey to Akyaka by rental car (recommended, as it provides comfortable mobility for your holidays), airport transfer organized by us (on request) or, cheapest, by bus.

Great Villa,

  • 5 of 5

This is our second stay in Akyaka, last time we had hotel rooms. A villa was much more pleasant.

Only a 5 minute walk from the Centre of Akyaka, where there are loads of restaurants and bars. The town is great value to stay in.

You can walk to the kitesurfing beach in Gokova in 30-40 minutes.

The owner Filiz is excellent at communicating with you, making sure everything is OK. We were a party of 10 and she organised all our airport transfers etc.

Had a great holiday.

Dream House

  • 5 of 5

This large dreamy open house is better in person that in the pictures. Romantic, artful, and lovely. My family and I felt very welcome. Everything we could have needed was there. The surrounding areas are beautiful. The beaches are soft sand, there is good food around every corner. The hospitality of the local people is extremely warm and friendly. I was so deeply impressed by this beautiful area and it's friendly people. The house was the cherry on a wonderful vacation. I will be back. Thank you again for sharing this jewel!

With much Thanks, Heather Scharvogel

Wunderschöner Urlaub

  • 5 of 5

Das Haus ist optimal eingerichtet, das Amiente hervorragend, die Lage des Hauses sehr zentral und ruhig. Mein Sohn, meine Schwiegertochter, meine Frau und ich haben die Zeit dört genossen und wir können das kleine Paradies nur empfehlen und kommen sicherlich gerne wieder. Vielleicht waere eine einfache Kaffeemaschine angebracht.

Liebe Grüsse an die Besitzer

Discover the marvellous play of sky and sea at one of the private, hidden-away beaches in the bay of Gökova. Splash about in the turquoise Aegean sea on the beach of Akyaka and enjoy the evenings with the fresh and delicious fish dishes of the local restaurants! You are already relaxed and you feel active ? Take your kitesurfing or windsurf equipment (of course also available here), Akyaka is the perfect place for that. Take a trip with one of the sightseeing boats in the harbour and visit beautiful and romantic places like “Cleopatra Island”, a beach of fine white sand where Cesar and Cleopatra are said to have spent their summer nights. You love culture? Fortunately you are spending your holidays in a discoverer’s paradise. Historical landmarks like Ephesus, Milas, Bodrum or Datca as well as unique natural phenomena, for example in Dalyan, make excellent day trips .

Your holidays in Akyaka can be many things but not boring or stressful!

Other Activities: kite surfing
