Words cannot do justice to the superb position of this villa, which is located in the very secluded and private Akkaya valley overlooking a beautiful lake, with pine forested mountains rising steeply around it. Access is easy to restaurants in the Dalaman area (only 15 mins drive), or in the international yachting centre of Gocek (only 20 mins drive through a new tunnel). Good beaches are only 20 -30 mins drive away. Main attractions at the villa are the complete peace and quiet in this beautiful Akkaya valley, where there are opportunities for many activities, including sailing on the nearby lake, or on the sea from Gocek, which has become a fashionable and very popular yachting centre. Other activities may include fishing, horse riding, rafting, walking, bird watching, or simply relaxing and listening to the croaking of frogs in the adjacent stream. The private 40 sq metre swimming pool in front of the villa is an unusual shape as it has been moulded around two huge rocks in front.
Dalaman is a small, mainly agricultural town, unspoiled by mass tourism, though it now has a modern international airport. Whilst there may be limited touristic attractions in the town itself, it is a very natural Turkish farming community, and does have good shops, cafes and restaurants, which are improving all the time as the area has been designated for touristic development by the government. Nearby Gocek is a very fashionable yachting centre.
Akkaya Valley has been developed as a hydro-electric project, with several dams along the river, forming several turquoise lakes which are attractively fringed with pink oleander bushes. The valley is being developed in a very sympathetic manner by local contractor Curbanoglu, constructing properties of a high standard. There are several housing developments being constructed in the valley which overlook the turquoise lakes.

Located in an area of outstanding natural beauty, opportunities for bird watching amongst the reed beds of Koycegiz Lake, visiting wonderful open air markets in Dalaman, Fethiye, Koycegiz and Dalyan. Swimming at Saragerme and Iztuzu beaches - the latter is famous as a breeding ground for the Caretta-Caretta turtles, and is off limits to people at night. Archaeology at historical sites of Kaunos (30 mins drive) and Ephesus (3 hours drive away) is fascinating. Dining along the riverside at Dalyan facing the floodlit Lycian tombs of ancient Kaunos is a magical experience. The famous Oludeniz Lagoon about an hour's drive away. A golf course is being constructed at Saragerme (completion expected sometime in 2012). The spectacular Sarsala Cove is only about 30 mins away.
