Apartments and Villas in Akyaka, Aegean Region, Turkey - Peaceful Central Location, Close to Beach and Restaurants
The Villas Vali are ideally located near the beautiful Azmak River just a 5 minute walk to Akyaka Village in one direction, or 5 minutes to the famous riverside restaurants in the other. Villas Vali are a group of only 5, two, three and four bedroom villas that share two swimming pools, set in beautiful, relaxing gardens and with views of the sea, Sakar Mountain, citrus and olive groves. The traditional 'Mugla' style architecture combined with true Turkish hospitality makes this the perfect home away from home.

About the Owner
My name is Caglar (in English pronounced Charler) Bozkurt, and I live in Akyaka close to the Villas Vali, which my family built in 1994. I love nothing more than seeing my guests enjoying a happy and relaxing holiday, and am delighted to see them return year after year.
From the Owner
“Akyaka is a beautiful small Turkish village. Whilst it caters for tourists, it is still very Turkish. You can eat at idyllic fresh fish restaurants by the river, surrounded by nature. As well as grilled and fish selections, Turkish cuisine caters very well for vegetarians. The owner's family still run their own farm in the mountains above Akyaka, and will happily teach you about traditional Turkish life, from picking the produce through to cooking over an open fire - and of course eating it afterwards washed down by local beer or wine!”

There are many beach activities available, including kayaking, windsurfing, kitesurfing, canoeing, sailing. Many boat trips are also available, both around the Bay of Gokova (including to the famous Cleopatra's Island), and along the 2 rivers that flow into the bay.
