Villa Sevdam Turkey, Bozburun Peninsula

To find a two-bedroom villa two metres from the sea with its own private swimming pool and located in a particularly charming Turkish fishing village, is exceptional.

We are therefore delighted to offer our guests the wonderfully situated Villa Sevdam in the sleepy, relaxed village of Söğüt. From Villa Sevdam guests can watch the sun set at dusk from the terrace while looking out over the sea towards the Greek island of Symi, or contemplate life from the private pool just metres from the sea: the views here are breathtaking but perhaps especially so from the master bedroom terrace.

It is just a short stroll to the local shop and waterside village restaurants, which offer a range of good food whilst the local coffee house introduces you to Turkey’s traditions and hospitality. The joy of stepping out of your villa straight onto the waterfront with its translucent blue sea might leave you reluctant to venture further. However, the rugged beauty and charms of the Bozburun Peninsula and Söğüt await exploration where you can discover bays, mountain villages and a traditional Turkish lifestyle unchanged by western influences.

  • Our holiday with Simpsons was one of the best we have had. All the travel arrangements went smoothly, the BA flight was much better than the usual charters, no queues for car hire and the villa was excellent in a lovely location by the beach. Absolute bliss. Mrs Crosbie - July 2015
  • Our first time to this part of Turkey and we definitely want to return. The villa and its location are perfect - so relaxing. Light dancing off the water, reflections and beautiful sunsets. Watching the local fishermen coming and going and enjoying their catch each evening. Food, wine, local people, especially Meltem and Ayten are all fabulous. Mrs Tilstone - September 2014
  • We have had a wonderful week in Sogut. Everyone has been so friendly and welcoming. Thank you especially to Meltem and Ayten for helping make our stay so special. A perfect holiday, thank you to Turkish hospitality. Mr Shires - September 2014
  • We had a fantastic holiday, thank you to all those at Simpson Travel. Our second week to the Bozburun Peninsula exceeded our expectations. What a beautiful part of Turkey. Villa Sevdam was perfectly situated and we could well have stayed put in Sogut for the week. But thanks to Aydem she shared some gems with us and we were able to discover some of the area. Aydem not only was the perfect rep but she was a true representation of everyone who we met in the area, charming, friendly, kind, calm and extremely welcoming. She even went the extra mile and accompanied us to the Doctors. Meltem, the house cleaner, was also a treasure, nothing was ever too much trouble and always smiling. She brought us homemade gozleme and fresh flowers from her garden. The location is perfect, the local restaurants fantastic, even the mini market owner became a friend. Villa Sevdam offers lots of sunny and shady reading spots and was perfect for the 4 of us. Thank you again, it was idyllic I just wish we could do it all over again. Brooke-Taylor - August 2014
  • Had a perfect week. This is the true magic of Turkey. Mr Ryder Richardson - July 2014
  • What a fantastic place, as everyone else has said, the villa is pretty perfect. Location is just brilliant. We have swam everyday, often 3 to 4 times. We will miss just getting up and jumping into the sea more than anything. Mr McLellan - June 2014
  • We love the villa, the garden, the variety of outdoor seating areas and the pool. It is a beautiful, unspoiled part of the country and very quiet at this time of year. Ayten the Simpson rep was very helpful and provided us with an excellent starter pack. Mrs Spiegelhalter - June 2014
  • We chose this place to celebrate both our birthdays this year and have had an amazing holiday. The villa is superb and the views are stunning! Our stay here has been very relaxing and we very much hope to return to this beautiful place one day! Mrs Curtis - May 2014
  • Excellent holiday in a beautiful location. Mr Miller - October 2013
  • If you are considering Sogut and are worried that you may not like, don't! You are just about to book the holiday of a lifetime. This place really is Heaven on Earth. As our 13 year old daughter put it "it is ridiculously beautiful" Ms Bush - August 2013
  • Very good holiday. Plan to book same villa next year Mr Bowman - July 2013
  • Sogut - food, relaxation, sunsets and full moon. Can't imagine a better spot to ponder the bigger issues of life..........no conclusion reached - return visit required to consider further? Ms Mcdiarmid - May 2013
  • I have heard nothing but good reports about your company and it is justified. We thought our villa was the best in the village (for us). We were so pleased and if possible we would like to book it again next year. Mrs Adams - September 2012
  • I don't really want to tell anyone about this holiday as it was so special and does not need lots of people taking it up!! Fine for you perhaps and the lovely people of the village but it does not need to change in any way at all! Mrs Bagot - September 2012
  • very enjoyable holiday. Thank you Mrs Moir - July 2012
  • They should change the name Sogut to "So Good" Mr Sketchley - June 2012

CAR HIRE INFORMATION
Most of our holidays include an air-conditioned hire car, to be collected from and returned to the airport (or port where applicable). The category of car included in the basic holiday price will vary according to the number of people in your party. We do not consider infants as part of the total party size. The cars we have included offer comfortable seating for the size of party travelling, however, we do ask you to take into account the size of the boot space for your luggage if any infants are in your party, and the number of child and baby seats required. You may wish to upgrade your car to give you extra comfort and space. Availability and supplements for upgrading will be advised at the time of booking.

INCLUDED IN YOUR CAR HIRE

  • Unlimited mileage
  • Local taxes and compulsory insurance
  • Two main drivers. Please note that there is a minimum age for drivers (minimum ages vary from 21 to 25 and can be advised at the time of booking) although there is no maximum age limit. Drivers must hold a British/EU Driver’s Licence or International Driver’s Licence, held for at least 2 years. You will not be able to hire a car without your original, valid Driver’s Licence which you must carry at all times when you are driving. Please also take the counterpart of your licence if you hold a photo licence.

Unlike many other countries, our car hire in Turkey also includes:

  • Tyres (excluding punctures)
  • Windscreen, wing mirrors and undercarriage (you should not drive off-road)

CAR INSURANCE
Please note that in most cases you will need to pay an excess in the event of theft or damage to your hire car, regardless of blame. As amounts and conditions vary, please ensure you ask for full details at collection, before you sign your car hire contract.

The insurance with or without the excess will not cover:

  • Personal Accident Insurance (this should be covered by your personal travel insurance)
  • Any damage, loss, accident, theft, attempted theft, etc caused by your own negligence, for example, driving under the influence of alcohol, unlawful driving, driving off-road, using wrong type of fuel, unlocked doors, apparent personal effects, etc.
  • Loss of or damage to car keys (and costs incurred due to this, for example towing and replacement keys, etc.)

CAR HIRE DEPOSIT
The car hire agents will require you to lodge a credit card deposit when you collect your car. No money will be taken if you return the undamaged car at the correct time with the correct amount of fuel and not requiring cleaning.

CHILD SEATS
Child and baby seats (forward facing seats only are available) can be provided if booked at least 2 weeks prior to your departure and are charged at £2 per day. Please remember to specify the age of the child. Local car hire and Simpson Travel staff are not authorised to install the child seats and as style and installation may differ to those in the UK, you may prefer to bring your own child seat for your own peace of mind.

TRANSFER INFORMATION
Please refer to the information at the top of the page for details of the transfers included in the cost of your holiday. Taxis are licensed and insured to carry up to 4 passengers. Therefore, if there are 4 passengers and an infant then 2 taxis are needed and we will provide you with a separate quotation. If you are travelling with young children or babies, child seats are not provided for any vehicles used for transfers. For your own peace of mind, we recommend that you bring your own although there is no guarantee that local taxi companies will allow the use of child seats. Please note that the transfer times included in our accommodation details are approximate estimates only and do not include any waiting time.

 

ACCOMMODATION AND USEFUL INFORMATION
 

Air-conditioning and heating 
We have indicated in the property descriptions which accommodation has air-conditioning included in the holiday price. Heating is available in some of our properties during the low season weeks, which is normally included in the holiday price.

Animals and wildlife
As in all rural communities, indigenous animals are an essential part of the way of life. The braying of a donkey, crow of a cockerel or the barking of a dog is not a complaint that receives much sympathy from the locals! Care should be taken to minimise the presence of insects and animals in your accommodation. Keep surfaces clean, dispose of refuse regularly and ensure that food is not left uncovered. Cats and dogs are often resident where an owner or manager lives on the property. If you are allergic to cats and/or dogs please ensure that you check the suitability of your chosen accommodation with us prior to confirming your booking.

Barbecues
We have specified if a barbecue is available at your accommodation. Please note that often in summer, due to the hot weather, use of your barbecue may not be allowed and/or strict rules for its use may apply. The local or national government reserves the right to introduce new rulings at any time, often with little prior notice, prohibiting the use of barbecues to reduce the risk of fires. Where a barbecue is not provided, it is usually because the surroundings are considered a fire risk or inappropriate for the use of barbecues.

Beach/pool towels
We provide Simpson Travel beach/pool towels in all our self-catering properties and Simpson Hotels, and these are normally laundered weekly. 

Beds
Please note that a double bed could be two single beds placed together. Double beds usually measure 140cm x 190cm and single beds 80/90cm x 190cm. If you are booking a hotel room, please let us know your room preference (double or twin). Although we will make every effort to convey your request to the hotel, we cannot guarantee your preference will be available.

Check-in and check-out
You will usually be able to occupy your villa, apartment or hotel room after 4pm and you must vacate it on the day of departure by 11am. Most of our hotels follow common practice with regard to check-in and check-out times (around midday); however some have later check-in times between 3pm and 5pm.

Cleaning
Self-catering accommodation is cleaned a minimum of twice a week (including arrival day) and some accommodation may be cleaned more often. Cleaning usually consists of a sweep, mop, bathroom and kitchen tidy up. 

Distances and timings
Please note that all walking and driving times stated are approximate estimates only. Transfer times are also approximate estimates only and do not include any waiting time.

Health and safety
Simpson Travel is committed to raising the standards of health and safety throughout all our destinations. Our guests’ safety and wellbeing is of the highest importance to us. However, please note that since many of our properties are private homes, it is not always possible to meet the same exacting standards as in the UK. In your accommodation we will provide any necessary health and safety information. We ask you to familiarise yourself with this information and the property on arrival, particularly when travelling with children, and to raise any concerns with your local representative.

Internet access and wifi
Internet access and wifi is available when stated in the relevant accommodation description details. Please note there may be restrictions with the availability and speed of the service transmitted by the local provider and technical issues may cause temporary withdrawal of internet facilities. We are unable to accept responsibility for any down time or consequences of using this service and refund/compensation cannot be offered due to circumstances beyond our control such as adverse weather conditions.

Linen and laundry
Bed and bathroom linen is provided and usually laundered twice weekly. For your convenience some of our properties have a washing machine.

Noise and building works
Traffic, farm work, roadwork, animals and other sounds form part of everyday life, however, what constitutes ‘noise’ to one person may not be a problem for another. Please let us know if you have any special needs regarding this. Occasionally, building work is unavoidable as we do not control such work and may not know about it in advance. Whenever possible, we will notify you of any work that we believe may affect your holiday.

Occupancy
Only guests named on your invoice are entitled to occupy the accommodation.

Plumbing and power
In some properties, the plumbing system is not designed to have items flushed down the lavatory. Where necessary, bins are provided in all bathrooms. Throughout Turkey power cuts can arise from time to time, due to electrical storms, for example. Power is normally restored quickly.

Satellite television
We cannot guarantee that a full selection of satellite channels will be available. Channels in English may be very limited and these are often only CNN or BBC World.

Seasonal facilities
Some facilities are subject to weather conditions and the general season, for example swimming pools, restaurant terraces, pool bars, local restaurants, and they may be limited or unavailable at the beginning or end of the season. Please do not hesitate to check with us, should a particular facility be a necessity to you.

Security and cleaning deposits
For self-catering properties, we require you to lodge a security deposit against any breakages, damage, losses, extra cleaning or outstanding accounts, which you may have incurred during your stay and/or due to your negligence. This should be provided by credit or debit card at the time of booking by providing authorisation for us to deduct (within 14 days of your return home) any advised charges from your card. Most of our properties are the owners’ personal homes and repairs, replacements and extra cleaning can be very expensive, so we do ask you to take care in order to avoid incurring extra costs.

Swimming pools
Swimming pool details are given on our website. Pool dimensions are approximate only and, unless specified otherwise, pools are freshwater and unheated. Dates when pools are operational are subject to the prevailing weather conditions at the time of opening and closing and we cannot be held responsible if poor weather means the pool is opened later, or is closed earlier in the season. Upon arrival at your accommodation, we kindly ask you to acquaint yourselves with the pool’s safety and hygiene rules.

Very few pools have covers, fencing or life rings, so children must be supervised at all times. Some pools are ‘infinity pools,’ which have an exposed pool edge with an unprotected drop. This maximises views and is an attractive feature of the pool. We recommend that children are supervised and that you do not sit, lean or walk on the unprotected edge.

Pool heating is a service that can be provided on a weekly basis in select properties. The cost varies according to size of pool from £100 to £200 per week. As a general rule pool heating will only bring the pool temperature up by approximately 10 degrees higher than the night time temperature. As such in early or late season you may still consider the pool temperature to be too cold despite heating. We regret that should this be the case Simpson Travel, our local agents and owners cannot refund monies paid for this facility.

Villa owners
Whilst the owners or staff of some properties may live on site and tend to the grounds, they are aware that you value your privacy, and will do their best not to intrude. We do ask you, however, to allow them reasonable access to the property so that they can maintain the grounds and keep them in good order.

Welcome Pack
We offer a welcome pack in all our self-catering accommodation.  This usually includes the following complimentary items: coffee, tea bags, milk, bottled water, fruit juice, bread, wine, local beer, pasta, pasta sauce, regional biscuits, savoury snacks, cheese, washing powder, washing-up liquid, dishwasher tablets, washing-up sponge, salt and pepper, sugar, vegetable or olive oil, vinegar, mixed herbs and toilet paper.

Guests at the Korsan Suites and Dalyan River Suites receive a small selection of staple items.

Our choice of Turkey properties is diverse, ranging from simple charm to genuine luxury and style. Much of our portfolio is privately owned, and price alone is therefore not a universal guide.

We contract all our accommodation in person, and each property has its individual appeal. To help you make the right choice based on your own priorities, we have devised a simple grading guide to be considered in conjunction with each individual property description, awarding up to a maximum of five stars for the below categories.
