Inside, you have a modern living area with two armchairs and a sofa bed, as well as a kitchen with a coffee machine, fridge, dishwasher, washing machine and oven.

The coastal town of Akyaka is a southern Turkey gem, situated on a hillside overlooking a charming bay. The town is known for its slow pace of life and a distinctive architectural style which sets it apart from the more built-up resorts. The beach is around 1.5km from your villa, while it’s about 4km to shops and restaurants.
Be sure to enjoy some walks along the river, boat cruises to nearby islands, or a visit to the Akyaka Olive Farm. If you travel an hour or two, you can also check out Dalaman’s mud baths, the incredible Saklikent Gorge or Fethiye’s beautiful Butterfly Valley.
A pretty hillside town overlooking Gökova Bay, Akyaka is a hidden gem. A mountainous backdrop adds a ruggedness to the charming beach area, where you are sure to spend plenty of time. Ideal for water sports and general chilling out, the beach also has some nice places to eat. Seafood and fresh fish is recommended, but there’s lots of choice both by the beach and in the upper village.
The town itself retains charm and distinctive character. Akyaka owes its architectural style to poet, journalist and architect, Nail Çakırhan, who built a house there in the 1980s. This style of this much-admired wooden house was copied many times and won a prestigious architecture award. The original house is now an attraction in itself.
A short, deep river passes its way through Akyaka – the River Azmak. It’s very pleasant to go walking along the banks, perhaps stopping at a restaurant along the way, and spotting the local wildlife. Boat trips are also popular – you can cruise along the river and look right down to the bottom as you go. While you may be tempted to jump off for a swim, be aware – the water is very cold.
Other possible activities include trips out to Cleopatra Island, where the ancient remains of the city of Kedrai are a big draw. You may also like to try kite-surfing on the beach at nearby Akçapınar. The Gulf of Gökova has developed a reputation as the place to be for this exhilarating sport, and you will see plenty of people doing it as the winds pick up.
History enthusiasts might like to take a look at the rock tombs which are found on the road from Akyaka to Gökova – remains of the ancient city of Idyma. There is also an acropolis at what is now Kozlukuyu, north of Akyaka.
Turkey is a big producer of honey and olive oil, and you will find the Akyaka Olive Farm not far from the town. Here. you can buy food and beauty products made using the farm’s olive oil and dine in a lovely riverside restaurant. In Marmaris, the Marmaris Honey House tells you all you need to know about honey and bees – this lively resort is only around 30 minutes away from Akyaka.
