What Oliver loves…
- Quiet and peaceful location nestled into the mountains, yet it’s only a short walk to the centre of Turunc with a good choice local restaurants, shops and amenities
- We loved the taking the regular water taxi across to Marmaris, to enjoy a meal and meander around the castle, marina and bazaar. Then another water crossing back to the tranquility of Turunc.
- Turunc is a lovely small resort and has a certain charm, we are sure you'll soon fall in love with it like we did.
- Villa Bitki is in an envious position, towards the back of Turunc but a short walk to the beach, restaurants etc
- Turunc is quieter than the more commercial Marmaris, worth the extra drive. You can get a water taxi to Marmaris if you want to visit the bazaar, restaurants or upmarket Netsel Marina

Five-bedroomed Villa Bitki boasts an unrivalled location in Turunc on the sheltered and sandy shore of the scenic Turkish Riviera. Set in a peaceful spot with a majestic backdrop of the tree-lined Taurus Mountains and the sparkling Mediterranean Sea within a short walk, it’s the perfect place to escape the stresses of everyday life. All you need to do is sit back with a cold drink and relax amongst it.
Travelling in a group, large family or looking for a little privacy? We know that not everyone wants to dine at a restaurant every night, so this villa is equipped with a modern kitchen for cooking up a storm in the comfort of a home-from-home setting. There’s an outdoor table and chairs too so you can dine al fresco while soaking up the stunning views of the Turquoise coast. For when you want to eat out, it’s only a short walk to the centre with top-notch local restaurants, bars and cafes.
The villa is set across four spacious floors, all with bath or shower rooms alongside comfortable beds to sleep up to eleven – there are no sofa pull-outs here. Rooms are complete with air conditioning, are elegantly furnished and have windows or balconies letting in the beautiful natural light and showcasing spectacular views. Shout out to the master bedroom with Jacuzzi tub for a spa-like feel.
There’s also a games room with table tennis and DVD player – ideal for children or young-at-heart adults. Downstairs, the large open-plan ground floor is beautifully laid out with direct access to your private swimming pool and terrace area. Laze on the deck soaking up the sunshine, or if you prefer the shade, there’s a comfy spot on brightly-coloured cushions under the grape-vine-draped gazebo.
With crystal-clear waters of the sheltered bay beyond and breath-taking tree-lined mountains behind you, Villa Bitki puts you at the alluring heart of Turkey’s scenic southwest coast. The charming fishing village of Turunc has plenty to keep you entertained, and if you want to explore further Marmaris is only 20km to the north with ancient sites and a popular seafront promenade.
Please note that Villa Bitki's Swimming Pool is covered between November through to April, but is still available for guests use if required. Please enquire for further details during these months, please.
What you should know…
- The villa is on an incline so it’s easier getting to the bay and the centre than it is getting back
- Although not completely private Villa Bitki is surrounded by a wall and therefore benefits an element of privacy, and of course your own private swimming pool.

Villa Bitki is in Turunc, 20km south of Marmaris on the Turkish Mediterranean coast and boasts a stunning backdrop of the majestic pine-scented Taurus Mountains. Occupying a sheltered horseshoe-shaped bay on the sublime Turkish Riviera, the waters are calm and crystal clear – perfect for swimming – and there are plenty of places to relax on the shore’s soft sands. Turunc was once a sleepy fishing village and has since turned into a popular, yet still laid-back, holiday destination and is ideal for families, friends and couples who want to enjoy some quality downtime together.
Despite its peaceful reputation, you’ll still find plenty to see and do on your holiday. There are fabulous fishing opportunities and water sports like sea kayaking and scuba diving for an adrenaline rush. For outdoor lovers, you can join a hike or horseback trek to explore the natural scenery. There’s a charming waterfront with restaurants and cafes and vibrant markets selling everything from fresh local produce to handmade clothes, rugs and souvenirs – perfect for picking up gifts.
For exploring more of the beautiful part of Turkey, Marmaris is a short drive or bus ride away where there are more scenic swimming beaches and a charming restaurant-lined seafront promenade. Marmaris is livelier than Turunc and is also known for its vibrant nightlife.
For fun family-friendly days out, you can jump on a boat from Turunc or Marmaris to Dalyan, stopping off to swim through coves and the clear waters of Adaköy peninsula before cruising east to the coastal village of Dalyan. You can turtle spot at İztuzu Beach, cruise along the Dalyan River to visit the local mud baths and thermal pools; and then explore the ancient King’s Tombs at Kaunos.

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 private enclosed swimming pool, a games room with a table tennis table, and an excellent location – only a short walk from the nearest sandy swimming beach and centre of Turunc with shops and restaurants – Villa Bitki is an ideal choice for families with children.
In and around Turunc, there are plenty of opportunities for kids young and old to take part in water sports like sea kayaking and snorkelling, and the area is renowned for its fantastic scuba diving spots. You can also jump on a boat from Turunc or Marmaris to explore the coastline and stop off at popular sites like İztuzu Beach where the Loggerhead Turtle famously nests and the Dalyan River. A 12-island boat trip may also include note-worthy sites like Tersane Adasi with its ancient ruins, Akvaryum Koyu for snorkelling, and Kizilada with its sandy beach and mud baths.
For more outdoor adventuring, the villa is set against a backdrop of the impressive Taurus mountains, and there are plenty of hiking and walking routes in the area. You can explore the pine tree-lined hills and wander through small villages to get a taste of authentic local Turkish life.
