Nestled above Söğüt, two-bedroom Villa Manzana is stylish, romantic and seductively private, with arguably the best views anywhere on the entire Bozburun peninsula. The house looks directly out over the cobalt blue of the Aegean, dotted with fishing craft, ferries to Symi and the occasional sleek yacht making its way to Söğüt harbour for a meal in one of the renowned waterfront restaurants there.
The comfortable interiors are understated and elegant, decorated in soothing earthy shades against a background of brilliant, sun-lit white that feels both uplifting and relaxing. Outside, the pool takes centre stage, perfectly placed to take in the sheltered curve of Söğüt bay and the islands that define its distinctive skyline. The bay twinkles into life at dusk as restaurants light their tables for the evening’s visitors and the sun sinks slowly down in a blaze of pink and gold. It’s just a five-minute drive to Söğüt’s atmospheric seafood restaurants, but if you prefer to walk you’ll find delicious home cooking and a table with a view at two family-run restaurants just a short distance from the villa. Secluded but not isolated, this is a magical spot for a honeymoon, anniversary or just the simple pleasure of quality time in a beautiful place.

We feel lucky to be able to stay at Villa Manzana again five years later and particularly to be able to escape at this globally difficult time. It is such a stylish and beautifully planned space! The highlights are the views in every direction and from the pool in particular. One can easily get here and just enjoy this great space. Merdane brought lovely and plentiful meze on arrival and have been friendly and helpful as ever. Jesisca also offered efficient and useful assistance. As previous visitors have mentioned, we also recommend Saranda next door, Mehmet’s and the Monday market in Söğüt. Ciftlik beach for swimming – still and quiet in the mornigns on the far side. Our only upset was not being able to stay longer.
Tijana & Mike Green – September 2020
We have enjoyed two weeks’ relaxation – pretty villa with exceptional views and lovely outdoor space and a veranda area to watch the boats go by. We visited Marmaris after a gap of many years, as well as Söğüt, Bozburun and the charming boutique fishing village of Selimye, as well as nearby villages and Bayir (noted for its ancient plane tree in the square). We have sampled many of the local restaurants in Söğüt and Selimye. Weather has been fantastic throughout – not a cloud in the sky and over 30 degrees daily. It has been a respite from Covid-19 life at home.
Jaqueline & John – September 2020
For the 4th year running, Simpson Travel has delivered again! You found us a great villa, in a private location, amongst the trees and bougainvillea, overlooking the beautiful panorama of Söğüt. Jessica is a credit to your organisation, you must be proud! She ensures you receive a personal touch and is always looking to improve and take the holiday experience to the next level.
Sarah B – October 2019
Reluctantly just about to depart this wonderful villa and village. The views have mesmerised us for the last seven days and the memories will help to sustain us through a dreary English winter. For a close shave try the barbers in the top village on the right on the road to Marmaris. Happy to recommend all the restaurants we ate at – Manzara, Mehmets, Thyssanos, Octopus in the next bay, Deniz Kizi, and Insinti. The drive to Serce Limoni is well worth it.
Sarah & Anthony – October 2019
We feel that we have just got into the swing and now have to fly. Relaxed a lot! We will be back. We seem only to have scratched the surface of this fantastic region.
Carolyn & Andy – October 2019
Jess was amazing, we travel a lot but she has been the best rep we have ever experienced. Her information, assistance and general obvious enthusiasm for Turkey was exemplary. We really enjoyed the holiday returning refreshed and energised.
RB – September 2019
Our sixth Simpson Travel holidayand Villa Manzana was our favourite to date. The combination of comfort, stylishness, privacy and a view to die for made for a memorable week. What we liked best was sitting by the pool watching stunning sunsets, whilst sipping Turkish wine…
Christine & Duncan – September 2019
Simpson Travel pays great attention to detail to ensure that guests have a wonderful time and go well beyond what you would normally expect from a tour operator. A very impressive start to our holiday was that the car we hired was ready and waiting with the air conditioning running so we could just hop in and go without having to wait in the usual queue in a hot sweaty office. Service was equally efficient when we had to return the car. The rep's knowledge and recommendations on places to visit and where to eat was invaluable and greatly added to our enjoyment. The villa itself was superb and our only regret is that we had not booked it for longer!
Susan Coleman – July 2019
Views spectacular. Villa fantastic. Jessica (Simpson Travel rep) very helpful.
Jessica – June 2019
Villa is perfect with fantastic views. We have been to Turkey every year for 20 years and the first time visiting Bozburun and for us it is ideal – not touristy at all. Quiet and the people are so friendly. All in all a perfect holiday with wonderful food and surroundings.
Gill & Nick – June 2019
Lovely to come back to Villa Manzana after four years. The villa is as gorgeous as we remembered. Sublime views, wonderful sunsets, comfortable and well equipped.
Hazel, Simon & Hilary – May 2019
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.
* For further clarification on Facilities and Amenities, please view the 'Details' tab for each property or speak to one of our experienced sales consultants.
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.
