Fully furnished and equipped 3 bedroom villa located in charming fishing village just outside of Cesme. TV / DVD and all mod cons.
Traditional Turkish Charm, Long Sandy Beaches, Turquoise Blue Seas, Wonderful Restaurants, Fabulous Water sports, Turkeys finest archaeological sites, museums and so much more......!
A stay at the Villa offers a true insight to Turkey, its culture and the local way of life. The centre of the village, with its local shops, traditional coffee houses, mosque, bakery and weekly market is the ideal place to observe the locals going about their daily routines.
Forget about the faster pace of living back home. Ciftlik koy and the surrounding area offer a world of days gone by as the locals trot around on their donkeys, and the farmers plough their fields by horses.
Take a stroll through the heart of the village and you will be transferred back in time to narrow streets and crumbling old buildings that were originally built when the Greeks lived in Ciftlikkoy. As you walk by, you will witness traditional Turkish ladies sat chatting on their doorsteps, cleaning their carpets, hanging out the washing or maybe even milking a goat !
Local Cuisine: Ciftlikkoys village restaurants are a short walk from the villa and offer a wide selection of international and local dishes at extremely low prices. For seafood lovers you can enjoy lobster, prawns, calamari, sea bream, sea bass, red mullet and various other catches for a fraction of European prices. But if fish doesnt appeal to your taste buds, low prices apply to all other dishes including Turkish and European menus. If you want to try something typically Turkish, wet your appetite by sampling the local plates of meze, washed down with the national drink of Raki.
If you require a little action, you can always take the regular minibuses into the nearby historical port of Cesme, or visit the various beaches and local attractions.
Cesme is only 6km away from the villa and is either a short car or dolmus journey, or a long walk along the coastal path from the villa. The town offers a wide selection of shops, restaurants, bars, banks, supermarkets and all that you could possibly require during your holiday.
Evening Entertainment, tends to revolve around dining out, spending several hours over a leisurely meal as done by the locals. Restaurants are family friendly as the Turkish people love children and the local children are awake until all hours, running about in the cool evening air. Should you wish to stay out late, Cesme has a small number of bars and the nightclubs are on the town outskirts.
Kitchen: The kitchen is well equipped with oven, hob, fridge, dishwasher, electric kettle, toaster, 12 place dinner setting and most of the things youd expect to find in your own home!
Lounge and Dining Room: The open plan lounge and dining room is comfortably furnished for your relaxation. To entertain you, there is a television, DVD, Satellite TV, a selection of books, games and movies to suit all ages and a stereo with CD / radio so that you can play your favourite tunes to get you in the holiday mood!
Three Bedrooms: Comfortable clean beds with quality mattresses and crisp white cotton sheets to ensure a good nights rest. And for when the temperature rises, all the bedrooms are cooled by a 3 speed fan, and have heavy net curtain and shutters, should you wish to block out the sun.
Outside: Doors from the lounge lead out to the covered terrace where garden furniture is placed for your enjoyment of the Turkish climate. There is a large roof terrace with wonderful sea views to enjoy whilst sunbathing. The balcony off the main bedroom is perfect for breakfasting or a quiet evening drink.
The Villa was very nice. The only things that could be better were the location. The area where it is are perct with nice villas around and a perfect wiev, but you have to take a bus everytime you wish to go to the beach or to eat dinner. But with two buses - a half hour - you get to one of the best beaches in the world - Ilica beach. Another thing that could be better where the contactman on the place Ismet Uzumcu. He was to much a turkish businessman - We found the price for one week high and expected some service, we only saw him when we got the keys and there we had to meet him 3 km from the villa, where half of us could drive by him. After that he tould us that we should pay 27 euro for driving the 3 km and for showing us the villa. But the owner Ian and his sister Kim gave us and excellent service from the day we ordered the villa - much more that we had expected. So all in all value for our money.

At the time of booking the client was advised that a hire car would be needed to fully explore the area, but they declined this. There appears to have been a mis-understanding with Ismet and the clients with regards to check in. The clients were happy to pick up the keys from Ismets office as they did not have transport. Ismet arranged a taxi to take the client to the property.
I believe, that later during the week, the clients did in fact hire a car form Ismet and we have offered to refund the money wrongly charged by Ismet. The clients said they were more than happy and did not want any refunds.
