Tinuka Cottage

Bozburun Peninsula, Turkey

  • Authentic, characterful cottage
  • Set in the heart of Söğüt
  • Metres from the sea
  • Private jetty

It’s not often that we find a property like this – and even rarer that it’s in a destination like unspoilt Söğüt. Here, the sound of the sea lulls you to sleep each night and seafood suppers on the waterfront are preceded by sunsets you’ll never tire of admiring.

Simply charming and just metres from the waves, 100-year-old Tinuka Cottage was named after a lost love – the feeling that perhaps you’ll have when it comes to tearing yourself away.

The beach begins just beyond your patio, with its little wooden dining table. It’s an undeniably romantic place to share a meal, but one that’s likely to be surpassed by an evening spent watching the stars come out from your own private jetty – and you’re welcome to move the table there so you can enjoy the experience to the full.

With uninterrupted views across the calm, crystal clear waters and a glass of something chilled, there are few better ways to end a lazy day. And thanks to the balcony upstairs, you can also step outside and enjoy that sparkling seascape from a more private vantage point too.

For those who like to feel the pulse of a destination, Tinuka Cottage is a perfect choice and, during July and August in particular, you can make this vibrant village community your own. There’s an excellent restaurant right next door if you don’t feel like cooking, and the daily comings and goings make you feel a part of something real.

Equally, on those days when losing yourself in a book on your jetty sunbed isn’t quite enough, Söğüt is just a boat trip away from undiscovered bays or you can follow the road looping around the Bozburun Peninsula for a laid-back day of exploring.

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.

Reaching out from a forested coastline towards the nearby Aegean islands of Symi, Tilos and Rhodes, the Bozburun Peninsula is one of the most peaceful and picturesque corners of southwest Turkey.

Azure bays and sheltered coves, woodland, olive groves and mountains set the scene for a holiday fragranced with fields of lavender and wild thyme. Centred around the seaside town of Bozburun itself, famous for boat building, this discretely luxurious destination is a protected conservation area, made for leisurely boat trips, sea-view restaurants and walks along the cliff tops.

To complete the scene, choose from our handpicked collection of Bozburun Peninsula villas and boutique hotels.
