Located in the Mugla region of the Turkish Aegean Coast, the region surrounding the towns of Marmaris and Datca, Turkey, is a beautiful area of rural coastline. Known as the ‘Turkish Riviera’, this area is the most beautiful, sophisticated and cosmopolitan of any in Turkey. If you are looking for a luxurious beach holiday in Europe, surrounded by stunning scenery and a tranquil yet hugely friendly atmosphere, you can’t beat taking a holiday rental villa in Datca or a self catering Marmaris apartment.

Things to do on holiday in Marmaris – Datca, Turkey

The area is best known for its coastline. Although the city beaches of Marmaris are not the best city beaches in the world, consisting of a fairly thin strip of black sand and pebbles, there are some fantastic beaches along this stretch of coast, especially on the Datca Peninsula. Scuba diving is particularly popular from a Marmaris apartment, and there are some excellent coastal rides to do.

Sailing is a hugely popular pastime in the Marmaris – Datca region, and once you arrive at a Datca villa or apartment in Marmaris, it is clear why. There are many sheltered coves to anchor, as well as large yacht harbours in both Marmaris and Datca. Exploring the islands, inlets and secret beaches of the Turkish Aegean Coast is a fantastic way to spend a few days, something which you can only do with the freedom permitted with a private holiday home.

The rugged peaks and deep gullies of the Datca Peninsula make the Datca region an ideal place to walk and mountain bike. The whole region is sparsely populated and untouched by the crowds of mass tourism, and there are more places to stop, have a picnic or swim in the sea than you could possibly find during a Datca holiday.

From our arrival in Dalaman we were very well looked after. The owners organised a 12 seater VIP mini bus to collect us and on arrival we were greater by Oz the housekeeper who welcomed us to the villa and explained all the necessaries. The villa was large and spacious with fantastic amenities and very clean. The outside grounds and pool amazing (the kids were in it all day). The large veranda was spacious enough for all to sit round and relax and take in the ambience of the villa. The owners were extremely helpful during the booking process and during our stay. They advised on local facilities such as supermarkets and the Sunday market, helped with the booking of trips and advised us of the best restaurants (giving us tips and useful phrases!!). The housekeeper Oz was a god send!! He helped us order takeaways, booked taxis (there was a taxi driver that lived across the road which was very handy!), brought us bread in the mornings and was a general translator when we needed assistance. He was a really nice guy and generally helped make our stay hassle free. We have stayed in villas in different countries (3 Portuguese, Florida, Tuscany) and I can say that this was of the highest standard. I would definitely recommend this villa and will hopefully return again sometime.
