Villa in Gocek, Gulf of Fethiye, Turkey - Peaceful location, in mountain foothills, 1 mile from sea front
Gocek is less well known to the British than some other places but don't let this put you off - it is a lovely place. It is where the smart Turkish set go on holiday and, even though most of the locals speak good English, it still feels wonderfully undiscovered. Gocek Royal is an exclusive development of 11 luxury villas just outside Gocek with its stunning coastline, marinas and restaurants. No7 Gocek Royal was completed in late 2013 to an extremely high specification. This is a truly stunning and very stylish villa with exceptional build quality and classy materials used throughout. The villa is all of the building that you see in the photos with 220 sq. metres of accommodation on 3 floors, with the open plan living area in the middle, making it ideal for two families. The villa has been interior designed throughout and is fitted out to the highest standard. It is fully air-conditioned. The traditional Mediterranean garden (which has matured nicely since the photos were taken) includes a jacuzzi and good sized swimming pool. These are private, belonging to the villa, and are surrounded by hardwood decking. There are gates on the veranda so small children can play without parents worrying about them falling in the pool. This need not be a self catering holiday. Gocek has lots of restaurants, there are delis in the village which deliver and there is nice take away food.
There is an English speaking concierge service included in the price so your holiday will be very easy

This luxury villa was spotlessly clean and very well maintained. The description was accurate and I would certainly recommend to anyone wanting a relaxing stay in this gorgeous part of Turkey. The property is ideal for extended families or adult groups. The views are lovely, although only the upstairs bedrooms have a view of the sea. There is an excellent new hamman (Turkish bath) at the bottom of the road, which offers all sorts of pampering treats as well as a superb classic hamman experience at a very reasonable 50TL. The petrol station at the end of the road is also a mini market, sells gorgeous fresh bread and fresh fruit and vegetables. It is also the drop off/pick up point for Dolmush to Fethiye and beyond. The Dolmush to Dalaman, Dalyan etc can be caught on the opposite side of the road. There are numerous excellent restaurants in the centre of Gocek, at all price levels. I would particularly recommend the Kebab Hospital, which offers excellent local dishes at low prices and has been in existence for years. A boat trip is a must and there are numerous gulets offering day trips to a number of bays, usually serving delicious freshly cooked meals and a chance to swim. Be prepared to use local taxis (which are very good and reliable), unless you hire a car, as the villa is some distance from the centre of Gocek.
This villa is totally luxurious and an amazing place to holiday. The setting is quiet, tropical and has a beautiful back drop. Hours of fun in the pool which is perfect depth & temperature. The house is cool, enormous, clean, bright, beautiful & designed to perfection. Bedrooms are large, stylish & well served with a bathroom each! The Jacuzzi bath is ultimate luxury. The town is great with an amazing choice of restaurants serving great fresh food and the most friendly service we have ever come across. An easy journey from the airport too. What is not to love? We loved staying here so much we promised to return next year! And the year after! 100% recommended
Stayed in a stunning new build villa. Extremely spacious with the two sleeping areas divided by the living area at ground floor. Very good specification and the veranda overlooking the private pool and garden is the ideal spot for outside eating/relaxing gin & tonic. Easily contactable and friendly taxi company meant getting into Gocek (5 mins max) was easy so car not necessary unless exploring further. Great and cheap local restaurants in town and well worth taking a boat tour around the bay. Will definitely return.

“Rob's parents lived in Gocek for 12 years and loved it. We have had many holidays there. Rob decided to buy 7 Gocek Royal for the family to use for holidays - we hope that one day we will be able to spend a lot more time there. When we first saw the villa being built we fell in love with it. It is brand new and a wonderful place to spend a holiday. The first time you see the views at Gocek it literally takes your breath away. Geographically I have not seen anywhere more beautiful. The people are lovely - totally genuine and extremely friendly. It is hard to describe how lovely the villa is. Total luxury inside, a wonderful private pool and garden and a lovely peaceful location with 24 hour security from really friendly guys. It is so very hard to leave at the end of a holiday there!”

Gocek is famous for its restaurants, most of which are on the sea front. There is also a wonderful selection of shops of both a practical and indulgent nature. These include a number of supermarkets including Kipa (Tesco Turkey). Many shops will deliver to the villa.
Being a sailing centre, Gocek caters for anything boaty. There are a number of Gulets and day boats based in Gocek. Exploring the archipelago of islands is a must and is an inexpensive day out.

The view from the sea front takes your breath away - many people describe this place as the most beautiful place in the world. However, the most special thing about Gocek is the people. They are friendly, genuine and totally trustworthy. They are particularly wonderful with children.

From the Owner
“Gocek Royal really is very exclusive. There is nothing else like it in the area. The developers that built it live there. They are lovely people. This is not a cheap villa to rent or own but it is a very special place to stay and well worth the money. The villa is set back from the town in the foothills to the mountains. It is very peaceful with a wonderful smell of pine trees. The sea front is only about a mile away. We prefer to rent a car because it is so hot. Gocek is an easy place to stay. Everything you need and the people are wonderful. The bottom line is that you just feel special when at Gocek Royal. It is gorgeous.”
