Outside

The grounds in which the development sits are beautiful landscaped gardens designed by a highly acclaimed British landscape designer. The development was designed to be a delight to walk around, little niches and fountains being discovered en route. Instead of one large pool isolated from the accommodation, the site was designed to incorporate 9 pools so that each area of accommodation has a pool that feels quite private. Sofas and table are provided as well as sunbeds/shades for the pool. These pools are round and 10m diameter with jacuzzi jets. There is also one large pool in the central area of the site next to the cafe and restaurant. The cafe/restaurant and terraces are the social hub of the site and barbecues and various activities are regularly organized. Social interaction was a key priority in the design of the whole development and, whilst you can feel quietly secluded if you choose to, there is strong sense of 'family' on the site both with site staff and visitors.

Coast/Beach

The Mediterranean coast of turkey has wonderful sandy beaches all along its coast. There are many beaches to choose from close to the villa although, due to the peaceful location of this site these are not walkable. By car the closest sandy beach is no more than 10 minutes away. If you drive a little further (say 20 minutes) you have all the beaches up to side in one direction and belek in the other. You can also explore the stunning coast line all along to Kas to the west.

Golf

This area is a mecca for golfers providing some of the best courses available in the world. There are a number of courses around but most are in the Belek area which is about a 10 minute drive away.

Nearest airport is Antalya, about a 40 minute drive from the villa. Transfers are easily arranged to the villa if desired. Reliable transport is available on request on the site but if you would prefer more independence car hire is recommended. There is a very helpful and personal service available for car hire. The site staff frequently offer small group trips and activities to local areas of interest for anyone who would like to explore with the company of a few others.

Guest comments

We were very impressed with the size of the villa - huge double bedrooms with very comfortable beds. The sitting room manages to be light and airy yet cosy, with full size furniture so you can be comfortable in the evenings. The kitchen and bathrooms are modern and spotless, with everything you would expect from this standard of villa - we especially liked the fact there is a downstairs loo as well as the two upstairs. The clever design of the building means that you can open terrace doors and windows to create a breeze to flow through the rooms (there is air con too for the very hottest days). The outside space is beautiful and peaceful - stunning views and a choice of pools and there is a great atmosphere at the main pool bar. We will definitely visit again - partly because there is so much to do in the surrounding area that we didn't manage to fit it all in!
