About the property

In A Sought After Area of Old Gocek Within In A Private Walled Garden. Large Pool,Terraces And Fragrant Shrubs.

The house is one of a pair - the other is kept primarily for the owner's use - and can be rented as a whole or due to its construction, as one / two self contained apartments providing flexible accommodation. Both options are popular with adult couples and friends holidaying together. Guests return year after year to this idyllic part of Turkey. Set in a private walled garden, the villas share the large pool and are close to the sea. A car is not necessary as all amenities are within a 15min walk. However guests often choose to rent one for a few days to explore the inland villages, mountains and coastal areas. Unspoilt by mass tourism, this stunning region has been declared a special environmental protection area. Sit and enjoy a quiet drink, watching the yachts moor up for the night as the sun goes down over the mountains, before dining in one of the many restaurants. It is an excellent place for sailing, with a spectacular coastline, small islands and bays. Our 40' sailing yacht 'Sevinc' is occasionally available to guests on a skippered basis.

About Hilary Cook

We are based in rural Shropshire, UK, and now divide our time between here and our home in Gocek.

We first discovered Gocek in 2001, purely by chance when we stopped off for a couple of hours during a one week yachting holiday. The following week whilst staying in a cottage in Kayakoy, we could not resist visiting Gocek again. We had no idea that this would become our home three years later!

The following two years were spent enjoying the wonderful sailing in Croatia and it was here that we bought our locally crafted yacht. After exploring many possibilities, taking us to two or three countries, we decided to bring the yacht to Gocek, at the same time buying our property and starting a new life, post children. We have never looked back!

Hilary Cook purchased this apartment in 2004

Why Hilary Cook chose Lycian & Turquoise Coast

The accommodation is in a perfect, peaceful location and although not in a flight path, is only 25 mins from Dalaman airport.

The close proximity to the mountains, marinas, sea and village centre, together with the flexibility of the property accommodation, made it an ideal choice.

We are usually on hand to welcome our guests and to provide those extra special snippets of information! At the very least, we can offer a glass of chilled freshly made lemonade or a slice of lemon curd cake, made with lemons from our own trees - very popular with our local Turkish friends! A popular and idyllic place for sailing, Gocek does not cater for the package market. Although many locals gain most of their income from tourism, life in the surrounding villages and mountains continues much as it has done for centuries.

What makes this apartment unique

This is a very special part of Turkey, as many visitors have come to discover, several of them returning each year. With so much to see and do, spectacular scenery and historical sites, a temperate climate, the warm, genuine hospitality of the locals, and fresh locally produced food, Gocek provides the perfect place for a holiday.

Sailing for which the area is best known provides exhilaration, real relaxation, and the opportunity to visit beautiful places inaccessible by any other means. Mooring up overnight in a tiny bay gives us opportunities for quiet reading, fishing, swimming in the clear turquoise sea, snorkeling, enjoying good food, wine and spectacular sunsets.
