Villa Askim

Bozburun Peninsula, Turkey

  • Stunning waterfront villa
  • Metres from sea
  • Private jetty
  • Short walk to village restaurants

Villa Askim’s position is simply breathtaking, located at the far end of the picturesque fishing village of Söğüt right on a little beach.  A private jetty leads invitingly into the intense blue of the bay, and a view so ridiculously perfect that it almost seems unreal. The house is attractively decorated, though in this position the emphasis is very much on outdoor living, with ample space and comfortable furniture for lounging and dining by the sea.

It is incredibly rare these days to find places you can stay this close to the water without actually being on a boat. Part of the reason that Söğüt can still provide this magical waterfront experience is due to its geographical position, which has kept it safe from the excesses of tourist development while still providing the little fresh fish restaurants and kind hospitable people that make a Turkish holiday such a pleasure. The whole unspoilt Bozburun Peninsula can also be explored at leisure from Söğüt.

The very last part of your journey is on foot, as you are led by Villa Askim’s owner five minutes along the seafront with your luggage: a small price to pay for this truly exceptional location.

Customer feedback

Had a great time in both Sogut and Akyaka. Glorious part of Turkey. Lovely people. Lovely food, fantastic scenery and of course exemplary care from Simpsons reps. What's not to love.
Mrs Adams – October 2017

Coming back again to this lovely place and its friendly people was a total delight. We spent a deeply relaxing time here and enjoyed the weather and the peace and quiet. Savas and his family are the kindest of hosts and his new restaurant is very good and even better will deliver to you!
Mrs Akin – September 2017

We had a wonderful week in Villa Askim. The location, right on the seafront, couldn't be bettered. The restaurants along the beach in Sogut were great - we didn't have a bad meal. We enjoyed visiting Selimiye and Bozburun and had a lovely boat trip round the local coves with breakfast provided - organised by Jessica, our excellent Simpson's rep. Savas, the owner of the villa was really helpful and the chef from his pansiyon, behind Askim, cooked a delicious dinner - served on our terrace right by the sea. One of our most relaxing holidays ever - we hope to return.
Miss Milton – September 2017

Everything about our holiday and Simpson Travel exceeded our expectations. We will certainly be repeat customers!
Mr Thorne – August 2017

We found Jessica to be a very friendly and knowledgeable manager. The amount of information she gave us was terrific. We stayed at Villa Askim for 1 week then moved to simpsons secret at Akyaka. Both villas were presented superbly well. The driving instructions for the transfers were very clear and accurate with the mileages between points spot on.We had a terrific 2 weeks . Thank you to everybody at Simpsons for everything. We will be booking again for next year very soon.

Mrs Bond – October 2016

Our rep Bilgen was lovely and very helpful and knowledgeable. She gave me a lovely owl macrame necklace which she had made which I had expressed an interest in. We had such a lovely time at Villa Askim that we have booked to go again next year!
Mrs Robinson – October 2016

Turkey has had such a bad press lately, it was so great to go back and enjoy the warmth and friendliness of the Aegean coast. We did not want to come home. 
Mrs Adams – September 2016

Lovely village, very friendly and hospitable people, the real Turkey.
Mrs Akin – August 2016

Villa Askim was wonderful. You could not be any closer to the sea! Amazing views and sunsets which we watched from the jetty. Lovely restaurants in the village, very friendly locals. A really special and unique find... Another lovely holiday with Simpson!
Mrs Nashnush – July 2016

Simpson are excellent – their attention to detail and service ensured that our holiday went without a hitch and was very relaxing. All their staff are helpful and friendly; the locations are well-chosen and all the mechnaics of the holiday are faultless.
Dr Hodgson – August 2015

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.
