But with added modern features providing comfortable accommodation with a new kitchen and bathroom, two bedrooms, one a double and the other has two single beds located in the converted barn with an en-suite.

Designed for outdoor living, the terrace is a great place to enjoy a meal or sit back and watch the sun set over the distant mountains, chill out throughout the day on the patio or relax in the hammock and of course to keep you cool in the garden is a fresh water plunge pool no chemicals are used and the water is changed every 3 days.

You can enjoy a range of organic produce from the village farmers including bread, milk, yoghurt, eggs, figs, grapes, butter, olives, olive oil delivered each morning.

Welcome to the start of your holiday.



GOCEK
Gocek the St Tropez of Turkey as many have described it attracts the rich and famous from across the world, their yachts adorn the harbour and this has created a quite unique environment. Gocek has maintained its qualities as a charming and rustic traditional fishing village. However, you will find that Gocek has all the facilities you would expect from a larger resort.

Gocek is a place of two halves, on the one hand its a traditional Turkish village with friendly people selling local crafts, rugs and fake designer goods like any large Turkish village but the other face of Gocek is a place with boutique hotels, designer shops, laid back bars and stylish waterfront restaurants, where you will find a fantastic choice of fresh fish, meat and organic vegetables. The Sunday market is an essential visit and dont for get to haggle!

From the marina you can hire a private boat for the day or go on one of the many boat excursions around the 12 Islands. A fantastic day out for all the family.

Gocek gives you the best of both worlds, this is not your typical tourist town, Gocek is very clean, relaxed and friendly with spectacular mountain and sea views - the ideal spot for a relaxing holiday or a holiday adventure.



BEACHES, RELAXATION, ADVENTURE AND HISTORY
INLICE BEACH: is approximately 800 metres in length with a deep stretch of dark coloured sand. The sea is safe for bathing in calm conditions and during windy periods the sea can be quite wavy. Along the beach you will find a cafe there is a car park, shower and WC facilities, changing cubicles and lounging chairs and umbrellas for hire. Inlice offers a refreshing coolness and in the evenings there is the heady scent of thyme and pine forest.

GOCEK BEACH: 20 minutes by water taxi. Enjoy a swim in crystal blue waters or rest under the pine trees and enjoy the peace and quiet. There is a simple restaurant and restroom facility available on the island.

SARIGERME BEACH: with miles of golden sand, shallow sea and the island of Babada not too far in the distance, is a great day out for all the family. A short walk along the wooded footpath with its turkeys, chickens and peacocks running free, brings you out onto the exceptionally clean beach. Facilities include food and drink outlets, water sports, showers, toilets, beach chairs, umbrellas and dressing cabins are all available.

IZTUZU BEACH: one of the most beautiful beaches on the Mediterranean coastline. This sand bar that separates the sea from the mouth of the Dalyan Creek is an excellent swimming beach. Iztuzu Beach has also been preserved, as it is one of the last nesting grounds for the endangered Loggerhead Turtles.

WHITE-WATER RAFTING: in Dalaman is one of the most exciting holiday experiences and is perfect for active thrill seekers. The Dalaman River is rated as one of the top rafting destinations in the world. Professionals will guide you every step of the way for an unforgettable adventure on the Dalaman waters.

DALYAN: a small but exquisite fishing town, which lies next to a meandering river, teaming with wild life. After spending your time browsing the typically diverse Turkish market stalls, why not relax and take a look at the Lycian tombs, carved into the rock face, from the comfort of one of the many romantically set restaurants lining the Dalyan riverside. It only takes you a few minutes from the centre of town to stroll through to the Old Dalyan of gardens and willow trees, to flavour days gone by.

SULTANIYE HOT SPRINGS & MUD BATHS: Situated just before Dalyan Creek joins the lake, you can give yourself a body pack of mud and then wash it all off again in a sulphur pool with temperatures as hot as in the Sultaniye Baths.

KAYA KOY: Once a thriving Greek village, this town of over one thousand houses, two churches, fourteen chapels, and two schools, was completely deserted in 1923 when the 25,000 Greek inhabitants were repatriated to Greece. Since then, the village of Kayakoy which had been continually inhabited since 13th century, has stood empty and crumbling, with only the breeze from the mountains and mist from the sea blowing through its empty houses and streets. A wonderful place steeped in history that touches you to the very soul.

KAUNOS: amongst the ruins of the city, you will find an old theatre, a large rectangular building that was probably a temple, others of uncertain description, a Byzantine church, and very curious rock-hewn tombs.

SAKLIKENT GORGE the ideal place to visit if you are feeling especially hot. The gorge is 18km long and so steep and narrow that the sun does not penetrate, so the water is icy cold. The gorge is approached along a wooden boardwalk above the river and opens out to a series of wooden platforms suspended above the water, where you can buy and eat trout at one of the specialist restaurants.

PATARA BEACH with miles of golden sand features regularly in brochures as one of the Mediterraneans most beautiful beaches and was recently voted the 2nd best beach in Europe by The Telegraph. Entrance to the beach is through the ruins of the ancient city of Patara, with a triumphal gate, baths, a theatre and a few temples.

XANTHOS a UNESCO World Heritage Site and one of the six principal cities of Lycia. Xanthos was the capital city of the Lycian Federation and its greatest city for most of Lycian history.

LETOON was the sacred cult centre of Lycia its most important sanctuary and was dedicated to the three national deities of Lycia - Leto and her twin children Apollo and Artemis.

TLOS best-known for its fortress-topped acropolis, with its rock-cut tomb-covered sides and its 360 degree panoramic views. As one of the six principal cities of Lycia and one of the most powerful.

We spent our last day doing a local walk, reading, enjoying the plunge pool and the hammock. A perfect end to a wonderfully relaxing stay at The Old Farm House. Thank you Mehmet for all you have done to make this the quirky, quite, relaxing place that it is. Thank you and your father too for making us so welcome. The organic grapes and figs are delicious.
Stayed 31 Aug 2012
We found the property delightful. It was well furnished and well equipped. The plunge pool was more than sufficient for our needs and the water was changed as promised without having to request this. Mehmet the owner was extremely pleasant, spoke very good English and was happy to help in any way he could. We are certainly planning to return next year. If all you want is a quiet and relaxing holiday - this is the place. There are no amenities within walking distance, so a car is required, but Gocek is a pleasant and easy short drive away and has everything you could require.

Great house, great place, great people. The 12 Island Boat Trip was fabulous and a good opportunity to cool down with a swim in the sea. Myra is a long drive away, but worth it. Saklikent Gorge is wonderful but buy some sensible waterproof shoes. We are all clean and relaxed after our Turkish Bath and Mud Bath, enjoy yourselves. The Greenhalf Family

Thank you Mehmet for a great holiday. The Old Farm House has been exactly what we wanted a quite and relaxing place to chill out and enjoy the surroundings. The location is really great for day trips. We would definately recommend Saklikent Gorge and scuba diving in Fethiye. For the best kebap try Pasa Kebap in Fethiye and so cheap. All in all we cant fault the holiday at all. Thank you Lizze & Pete

we absolutely loved the Old farm House, it was our first holiday as a couple, leaving our grown up children at home and it perfect for peace and relaxation. You really feel so chilled and happy when there. Mehmet was charming and so helpful, he arranged the car hire, someone to take us to and from the airport, an amazing boat trip and a recommendation of the local turkish bath, a complete must on the first day of the holiday. we will return to The Old farm house, it was delightful

July 2013, Rich & family from Brighton - For the past 2 weeks this has been a lovely tranquil home to us with everything that we could want and providing a relaxing experience in a wonderful rural setting in an unfamiliar country. Great things about the house include the plunge pool, clear night sky with the milky way splashed across it and streaks of shooting stars. The walks in the forest above are grand too and I have left some maps. in the house with details of the walks. Mehmet has been helpful from the moment of our arrival and generally responded to text requests on the same day. Our days have been spent mainly trying out different beaches with much pleasure once we accepted that all bar the local one (Inlice Beach) charge for access and facilities. Great family holiday thanks.
August 2013, Giles and family from London - The Old Farmhouse is the perfect destination to stay to enjoy a peaceful, entirely remote holiday. The scenery as Im sure you have already admired yourself is absolutely amazing. My father said that having travelled to many places the scenery here is one of the best hes ever seen. Overal we have all had a lovely six days at the Old Farmhouse. Cheers Mehmet
May 2013, Rebecca & Harry from Bath - We have only been here for 3 days but it has been lovely, Tender Sweet House, gorgeous cool pool. The company of the cicadas and the dear little gray cat. She is very old (17) and loves being here getting attention! There is also a rather dear one eyed dog who belongs to the lovely German lady next door he is called Popeye. We have loved the kind attention from your family Mehmet and lovely Gocek with gorgeous shops and restaurants. Thank you
May 2013 from Natalie & Darren from West Sussex - The Old Farm House is a really beautiful place to stay. Mehmet and his family are wonderful people who bend over backwards to make your stay in their beautiful country memorable. We will recommend this place to all our friends and hope to return.
Thanks Mehmet for a great holiday and we will be back next year. The Old Farm House is a great escape and the ideal place to relax and un-wind away from the world.
“Romantic old house, lovely small village, quiet green valley, Mountains!” 5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 1, 2013 by Rune from Denmark I just returned from a month vacation (paternity leave) in the Old Farm House in Gokceovacik with my wife and 9 month old son. We had the best and most wonderful time, and I strongly recommend the place for both shorter and longer stays. The property is charming beyond comparison! Really an old farmhouse but recently and nicely restored with taste and quality. But its the setting that really defines this place. Nesting on a hillside there is a stunning view over the valley and the small village Gokceovacik. The village itself is really charming, narrow and winding roads for the car, no shops and the locals nodding friendly when you pass. So its just a really beautiful and quiet place to stay for relaxation or as a base for trips to the surrounding areas. There are spectacular walks in the mountains starting just out of the property, tracks in the forest for running or walking, and with a car you can reach a beach in 20 min, shopping and eating the yachting town of Gocek, boat trips, historical sites, local markets, the list goes on. Besides, the best part of the place might be Mehmet, the owner of the House, who lives in Dalaman. A friendly and really helpful guy who took care of us from first day, answering any questions, advicing on the area, provided a high chair for the baby, lended me a guitar, the list goes on. We didnt really have any problems during our stay. The first part of april was a bit cold in evenings and mornings, especially the stone floors for a baby who is not walking yet, but Mehmet provided carpets and an electric heater as soon as we asked for it. And then you definitely need a car, with 10 km to the nearest shop. We rented one from Mehmet with no problems at all. Go and experience this place for yourself, its a pearl.
Ken and Irina - September 2010 We had a wonderful time leading the simple life at the Old Farm House. It is a most relaxing place to "get away from it all" and Mehmet is a great friend who ensures that everything goes smoothly.
Chris and Frances - May 2010 We have had a fantastic holiday. The house is lovely and peaceful and surrounded by the most beautiful countryside. We had some great walks in the pine forest and found at least six different orchids. Mehmet took us for a hike high up to the top of the mountain and down again, back in time for sunset. Our favourite outing was to Pinara a fantastic site where you can roam for hours among the cliffs and rocks discovering ruins. The setting is exceptional but quite steep and windy road to get to it. Thank you
Milk from the cow, home-made bread and yogurt and local olives from Mehmets parents who work the nearby fields. Splendid barbecued aubergines and kofte, yoga on the platform, endless novels in the hammock - this is a rustic little place, not luxurious but has what you need if you are here to get away from it all - a mass of greenery cooling the heat of the day, a lovely verandah to sip raki and gaze at the pink of sunset, sunbeds and a small dipping pool and amazing walks.
Rocsan and Family – August 2008We had a great time here and loved every minute of our holiday. This house was perfect for our family and this location is amazing. Sitting on the terrace and looking at the mountains is the perfect thing. We went to Inlice Beach nearly every day and made lots of local friends. The 12 island boat tour was really good and the sea was amazing. Thank you.Leith Family – July 2007We have had a lovely relaxing 2 weeks here is the Old Farm House. This is our 3rd visit to Gokceovacik, so I’m sure we’ll be back. Thank you for all your help and for your warm welcome. Thank you also to your father for his fresh eggs, veg and home made bread.Hester – October 2006Lost my heart to Gokceovacik completely – life will never be quite the same. But we have already booked to come back next April when we can get to know this extraordinary place better.Peter – September 2006The Old Farm House is a great place to stay. This is a great place to relax and forget about the hustle and bustle of home. Great views, lazy comforts, plunge pool to cool off, a perfect mountain retreat. Gocek is a great place, try the Nur restaurant, very friendly and reasonably priced, good food. Loved every minute.Kelvin – August 2006Thank you for an excellent stay in the Old Farm House, so relaxing. The 12 Island boat trip is a must, inexpensive and lots of swimming. A trip to Saklikent Gorge is cool and refreshing and the Tlos ruins nearby. Fethiye worth a visit of course, especially on Tuesday market day. Kayakoy ruins outside Fethite were interesting. In Gocek we ate several times in the Limon restaurant. Thank you.Megan and Tony – July 2006What a wonderful, peaceful experience of “Rustic Turkish Life” Especially enjoyed an evening of entertainment here with all the family and friends of our host – thank you. The plunge pool with fresh water was fantastic. Thank you for the fresh produce supplied daily – delicious. We’ll certainly recommend this paradise to our friends back home. Good bye and thank you.Vanessa – October 2005We had a wonderful holiday, it was good to be back in Gokceovacik after 5 years. Good restaurants we found were Limon (on the main square), West Café and Blue. The boat / gullet trips are a great way to spend a day. Hope to be back soon.Carole and Steve – August 2005Had a great time, met some lovely people and saw some great sights. The Old Farm House is lovely, it was great to get up to such a lovely view everyday. By far the best holiday in 3 years.Maurice – May 2005Thank you for this wonderful opportunity to experience true Turkish hospitality. The Old Farm House is the perfect location for a perfect holiday. We are very grateful for all gifts from your parents garden. Fethiye, Dalyan and Olu Deniz are all worth a visit. A days sailing is a must and the Limon restaurant offers great Turkish food. We hope to return and we will tell our friends about this special place.Dulcie – August 2004I have had a great week here, we have done so much, its great when you come home from a busy day to be able to jump in the refreshing plunge pool. The views are beautiful and lying in a hammock a reading a book is the perfect way to relax. Thank you.Millie – August 2004This is a perfect holiday destination. Sat on the terrace looking out over the valley is just a fantastic way to relax and forget about all the responsibilities and pressure back in England. A beautiful place and lovely, friendly, hospitable people. Thank you for a wonderful holiday.Maddie – August 2004The old farm house is beautiful and I loved being able to jump into the plunge pool when it got too hot. Thank you so much for making us feel so welcome and looking after us so well. Thank you also to your parents for being so sweet and kind. Gocek is a really lovely place and everyone is friendly. Thank you.Dave – August 2004What a lovely holiday – we were so lucky to have found this “Old Farm House”. The long drive up from Gocek makes you feel as if you are getting to the middle of nowhere, as you top the rise and see the valley before you its as if you have found a secret. Away from the hustle and bustle of the coast this was a perfect little peace of heaven.Ben and Nicky OsborneA wonderful house to stay in, you feel a thousand miles away from all the hustle and bustle. Gocek is a lovely town and we ate at the Limon Tree restaurant – good food. We hired a boat to go around the bay and islands, a great day our, as was the river rafting. A lovely holiday, thank you.Nell and DaisyLovely views across the mountains. The plunge pool is a lot of fun. The hammocks are good for relaxing. Thank you to your parents for giving us their delicious produce. Walking up Saklikent Gorge is a fun experience, well wroth the visit. We had a really good time. Thanks
