Villa overview - owner's description
Yuksel Ev is a family-friendly two-bedroom villa in Akyaka, a bohemian town in southwest Turkey. The villa itself is in a tranquil spot, in the forest outskirts, and is surrounded by olive groves and natural pine forests. With magnificent views of the naturally beautiful Gokova Gulf from your private outdoor pool, balcony and sun terrace, you'll be forgiven for never wanting to leave.
The spacious interior is the perfect blend of modern and traditional; the double and twin bedrooms are adorned with traditional wooden floors and carved ceilings, while cream-coloured walls and soft furnishings are prevalent throughout the villa. There's an open-plan kitchen and living room with cushioned sofas and a classic working fireplace for relaxing after a day of exploring the charming local area.
As well as the spaciousness of the inviting interior, and the stunning nature views from the glass windows, there's a balcony which is reached from the double bedroom, alongside an outdoor terrace and swimming pool. On the balcony, you'll find an al fresco dining table under shade, so you can soak up the Instagram-worthy sunsets over a refreshing glass of your favourite tipple.
Making the most of the serene outdoor setting, the pool area is lined with several sun loungers, along with a chic swinging chair and another dining table.
You can effortlessly find your perfect reading spot under one of the umbrellas or bask in the sun. We especially love the local plants, trees and shrubs that dot the grounds – an extra nod to the lush, rural surrounds and secluded ambience.
With local fish and meze restaurants, along the Azmak River and sandy Akyaka Beach within a short drive, Yuksel Ev is an excellent choice not only for couples and small families but also for those who want to explore the rich cultural heritage and natural beauty of this idyllic part of Turkey.

Located in the Mugla Province of Turkey, a 1-hour drive from Dalaman, Akyaka is a charming coastal town known for its striking natural scenery, large sandy beach and accredited by Cittaslow for its keeping with local culture. With plenty to offer foodies, nature lovers and architecture buffs alike, it's an ideal holiday location for families with children, friends and couples.
The main attraction is Akyaka's beautiful rural surrounds where a multitude of wildlife, including fish otter, herons and flamingos inhabit the wetland conservation area. There are walking routes in the pine forest and along the Kadin Azmak River, where fresh fish are caught, there are plenty of fish restaurants. You'll also find more restaurants, shops and markets between 2-6km from the villa.
Walking along the banks of the river, from the harbour you'll find several restaurants serving a hearty Turkish Breakfast. Protected forests lie to the north and west, with mountains beyond. Upper Akyaka is the working part of town, with a small market, fishmonger, butcher and baker and coffee houses full of men playing traditional tavla (backgammon). You can also explore the traditional Turkish Ottoman Ula Houses in the town, characterised by double staircases, ornate wooden balconies and their white or cream-painted walls.
For outdoor adventuring, Cinar Beach is a short drive away. It's a secluded cove surrounded by forested mountains, with a small creek and a beach bar. You could also take a boat trip from Akyaka to Cleopatra's Beach on nearby Sedir island, where it's said that Mark Antony brought the golden sand from Egypt. Sedir island also has Hellenic and Roman ruins for you to see, including a beautiful amphitheatre, where olive trees have grown through the stones.
From Akyaka you can take the dolmus (public bus) to Mugla, which has the largest market in the region (every Thursday), drive to the ruined city of Ephesus or the quaint village of Sirince. The ruins from a sculpture school at Aphrodisias are less known but no less impressive. The travertine pools of Pamukkale are also within a day's drive.
