What Oliver loves…
- Fantastic location right on Zuzu Beach in Marmaris. You’re steps from the pebble and sandy shore.
- The villa is waterfront facing with unrivalled views of the bay and the tree-lined mountain backdrop.
- If a morning swim in the sea is your 'thing', this is the place for you as the sea is in front of the house.
For seafront serenity, one-bedroomed Orhaniye Plaj in this pretty seaside village just half an hour from the resort of Marmaris is an ideal choice. Set in a peaceful spot in beautiful Orhaniye village on the Turkish Riviera, the villa boasts uninterrupted coastal views and is just steps from the beach and the turquoise Mediterranean Sea. Relax under shade in the garden while listening to the soft sound of the water lapping the shore, go for a cooling dip or find your prime sunbathing spot on the sand.
Outside, the villa is classically Mediterranean in style with whitewashed walls and a red-terracotta tiled roof. Inside, the space is modern and bright with minimalist and comfortable décor, natural-coloured furnishings and floor-to-ceiling windows creating an extra feeling of light and space. Sleeping up to five, there’s a comfortable sofa bed and an inviting sea-facing bedroom with two single beds and floor-to-ceiling windows, allowing you to make the most of the tranquil vistas.
The open-plan living, dining and kitchen area is flooded with natural light and has direct access to the garden. There’s also a large corner sofa, a flat-screen TV and air conditioning throughout for a relaxing home-from-home experience. In-between the living area and fully-equipped kitchen (including a washing machine and fridge), there’s a dining space with a wooden table that can seat up to four. It sits next to the floor-to-ceiling windows so you can enjoy sea views with every meal.
In the garden, there’s also an al fresco seating area under shade and a BBQ. If you can bring yourself to leave this serene space, there are a couple of delightful cafes and restaurants within walking distance of the villa where you can try fresh and local Turkish cuisine. With the vibrant Marmaris Yacht Marina with waterfront restaurants and Bar Street Marmaris with clubs and bars both a short 17km drive, Orhaniye Plaj is well placed to explore more of this charming part of Turkey.
What you should know…
- Beaches in Turkey are never completely private, so whilst the garden has a small barrier you may find people entering the sea in front of the villa

- Open plan sitting room, kitchen & dining
- Shower room
- Bedroom with twin beds (can be made as double)
- Garden area
- Picnic bench
- Washing machine

Orhaniye Plaj is in a sought-after location, steps from the pebble and sandy-lined Zuzu Beach in Orhaniye village, on the southwest coast of Turkey. It’s in a natural area with a pine tree-lined mountain backdrop. Local restaurants and cafes are within a short walk, while the more vibrant port city of Marmaris is 17km away, with restaurants, cultural sites and sports activities.
Beaches are scattered along the Bozburun Peninsula. You can also jump on a boat trip to explore the scenic side bays, caves and islands the best place to pick up these is Selimiye. Selimiye is a pretty small resort with fish restaurants and small boutiques, and a prom to wander along. The fish restaurants in Sogut are worth a visit, with a view across towards the Greek island of Symi. Bozburun is where many of the wooden gulets are build and there are a few good eateries there. The usual tourist trail takes people to Orhaniye for it's legendary sand spit, Turgutkoy for the Carpet shop and waterfall, Bayir for it's plan tree, said to bring good luck and then to Osmaniye for the Beekeeping museum.
If you chose not to hire a car there is a local dolmus that runs to Marmaris, here the 16th-century castle is worth a visit. It’s perched on a hilltop and is draped in beautiful bougainvillaea flowers. Wander around the marina and harbour dotted with colourful yachts, alongside waterfront restaurants, cafes and bars serving everything from fresh seafood to meaty kebabs and savoury crepes.
You can stroll along Marmaris’s streets taking in the beautiful Mediterranean architecture or head to the boutique shops and bazaar to pick up everything from local honey to designer copies. Finish off your day at a Hamman (traditional Turkish bath) where you can relax with a full body scrub or massage. For a sophisticated evening dine at one of the restaurants overlooking the marina.
On a Saturday the market in Datca is worth a visit. Drop off at the Olive Farm shop en route and take a stroll around the ancient ruins at Knidos to make a day of it. If that's too far Orhaniye has a smaller weekly market on a Saturday.

The South West coast of Turkey offers the perfect climate for your holiday, boasting over 280 dry days a year and an average June temperature of 28 degrees Celsius in this area, with sea temperatures of 23 deegress celsius. For keen walkers the paths of the Carian way will take you around the area.
Sat on the site of the Carian city of Physkos, Marmaris started welcoming European tourists in the 1980’s. At the time big hotels were what the travel agents were selling. The surrounding areas remained unspoilt and in recent years villas have popped up in less touristic areas. Marmaris still has a picturesque vista and the areas around the harbour, Netsel Marina and the castle are worth a visit. The castle was reconstructed by Suleyman the Magnificent during his expedition against Rhodes and houses a small museum. You couldn’t find better places to try an authentic Doner Kebab than some of the restaurants behind the bazaar, or for a more sophisticated version go to the Baris Ustu Kebabci in the Netsel Marina.
The Bozburun Peninsula represents the real hidden Turkey. In recent years wealthier Turks have headed to these parts to enjoy the thyme-scented air that is said to be ultra-healthy due to being high in oxygen as a result of the trees and proximity to the sea Throughout the peninsula villagers live as their ancestors did a century ago, tilling the land of a small holding, keeping bees or working in ancient trades handed down through generations. The women work hard to keep house and land. Every village has a teahouse where you’ll see the men making business over a game of Tavla (backgammon), slowly drinking endless cups of crystal clear black Cay (tea), drunk out of tulip-shaped glasses. The peninsula has loads of lovely restaurants, simple but delicious food. Enjoy fish in Selimiye; choose mezes from the kitchen and wash it all down with a glass of Lion’s Milk, the slang for Turkish Raki, an aniseed spirit that becomes white when water is added.
Travelling around the peninsula, there’s Orhaniye where you can walk the sand spit, Turgut where you can see the ancient trade of carpet weaving and visit the waterfall to cool off, especially if you purchased a carpet. Sogut is a hidden gem, and where a long seafood lunch is the way to go. There is a bee ‘museum’ in Osmaniye which pays homage to the local production of pine honey. Turunc, Amos and Kumlubuk sit on the southeastern coast of the peninsula. Kumlubuk has a sweeping beach, and a sandy shingle, water-sports and a few restaurants. Amos has a smaller pebble beach and a popular restaurant selling a range of Turkish favourites. Turunc is more of a resort, with a few streets behind the beach, plenty of eateries, shops and bars. Give it a little time as it is somewhere people fall in love with. Further around is Icmeler, which merges into the bigger Marmaris.
With a fantastic beachfront location and a small garden with shaded and grassy spots, this is the perfect villa for families with children. There are family-friendly cafes, restaurants and food shops within walking distance and the villa has a fully-equipped kitchen for home cooking.
Orhaniye Plaj is about 16km from the centre of Marmaris, where you’ll find more restaurants and serving local and international cuisine to suit all tastes. Children can play on the beach just outside the villa and swim in the calm, clear waters.
For exploring, you can head to the Bozburun Peninsula – a coastline indented with beautiful bays and islets, and there are ruins of ancient settlements such as Bybassos and Kastabos to discover.
For cultural day trips, Marmaris has a historic 16th-century castle and an archaeology museum with excavated treasures. You can also visit a water park, or children can take part in water sports such as scuba diving, jet-skiing and paragliding. Boat tours leave Marmaris to explore the sandy coastline, and you can go eastward of Marmaris to the cities of Fethiye and beyond.
