Holiday Rental House
This luxurious villa is in an idyllic location and has great facilities. Take in the stunning views as you drive up the winding road to the gate and park your car in the grounds. Then you notice the fountain on your left and all around you the mature garden with its fruit trees, flowers and herbs. You go up the steps to the front verandah and enter the house. You are now in the hall and are struck by its marble floors and high ceilings and overall spaciousness. You can see the main sitting area on your left, the stairs ahead (leading to three bedooms, two bathrooms and three balconies), the downstairs bathroom and the kitchen/garden room area on your right. The main living area is large and gives on to the front downstairs balcony with its views of the sea. You have both a sitting area...This luxurious villa is in an idyllic location and has great facilities.

You have both a sitting area and a dining area for 8 people and there is an open fireplace, a television and luxurious furniture. Leaving this room you walk across to the fully-equipped kitchen and also the garden room with its casual dining table and 6 chairs which opens on to the spacious 10x5 swimming pool with a shallow end and the BBQ area with more stunning views. You also have the secluded covered pergola area which dines six at the back nestling under the pine trees. All close to our quaint local village of Esentepe and fine restaurants! More

About the neighbourhood
superior international food and friendly Turkish service just a short walk away and it has its own beach. The villa is also only a short walk to the popular restaurant (for mainly British food) and the supermarket (with Esentepe beach behind it). If you're feeling energetic, the village shops and restaurants are a short uphill walk of 15 minutes. Or take the car and be in a fine local restaurant in a flash where you will be ready to spend the night eating delicious local fare and making new friends. But which restaurant will you prefer? Remzi's for its family atmosphere, Tumba's for its large terrace or Agurus Evi for its Turkish food? And there others to try such as Esentepe restaurant for its incredibly low-priced Turkish pizzas or Zirdelli for its night life. Let us know which yo...
