  • Pretty waterfront villa
  • Delightful garden
  • Sunset views across to Symi
  • Gentle stroll to village restaurants

Sögüt is one of the most charming seafront villages that we know and Villa Ruyam lies at its authentic heart. Just metres from the water’s edge, a wide veranda spans the length of the villa; a blissful spot to sit and idle away the hours, soaking up the mesmerising views and observing the gentle comings and goings of village life. Fishing boats drift in and out of the harbour and the Greek island of Symi shimmers in the distance, a picture-perfect landmark against the spectacle of the daily sunset. 

The house itself is simply furnished, with two bedrooms (an en-suite double and a twin) and comfortable, contemporary décor that gives a lovely sense of space and light throughout. To the rear, a covered terrace leads onto the well-kept garden, a delightfully private enclave for alfresco lounging and dining by the attractive pool.

For a day out, the picturesque Bozburun Peninsula is a magical land of cliff-top walks, tiny hillside hamlets and forgotten ruins. Fig and olive groves line the hillsides, where fragrant lavender and wild thyme tumble down towards turquoise waters and idyllic hidden coves. On your return, you’ll find Sögüt is home to an excellent selection of restaurants, with tables set right on the water, serving some of the best food on the whole of this pretty peninsula.

This really is Turkey at its best - blissfully untouched, with just the right amount of discrete luxury to ensure a holiday here is a joyous escape.

It is very difficult to put into words how much we have enjoyed Villa Ruyam. We have had an amazing holiday, very relaxing and we really do not want to leave. The little shop has everything you need and they are very friendly. You are totally spoilt for choice about where to eat – all our meals have been so fresh and delicious. Meltem and Nihat are superstars. Meltem keeps the villa looking so clean and pretty. Nihat is so helpful with bookings and recommendations. Everyone is so helpful and genuinely very friendly.

Fiona and Marn, August 2023

Our second time in Villa Ruyam, our happy place! Thanks to Nihat for being the best rep ever, super helpful, efficient and friendly, always responding to our many messages straightaway. We hope to return again next year.

The Williams Family, July 2023

Loved Villa Ruyam, beautiful and tranquil location with stunning views right on the waterfront. A very high standard of accommodation, lovely finishing touches and excellent cleanliness. Our Simpson concierge, Nihat was super helpful and knowledgeable so we really got the best out of our one week stay. Highly recommend.

Geraldine Osman, June 2023

What's to say, we love it here, and Villa Ruyam didn't disappoint.

Ann and Linda, June 2023

Second time here and it was as good as last time. We came for relaxation so didn't do much. Thank you to Meltem for servicing the villa. Hope to make it back here soon!

Caroline and Andy, May 2023

Absolute bliss. Thank you very much.

Sally and Stuart James, May 2023

Great stay, lovely place in a wonderful location. Nihat and Meltem have been very helpful and the place is kept so nicely.

Moyra and Ian, May 2023

Jess the local area rep is brill. No question is too much trouble and she is so knowledgeable and helpful. It has been another relaxing week watching the world pass us by. We will be back in October 2023, can't wait!

Amanda and Ian, October 2022

Our second time in Sogut and we enjoyed it just as much. It's so lovely to find a little haven where time appears to stand still.

Valerie and Roger, September 2022

An excellent holiday with Simpson Travel - Sogut is my new happy place.

Caroline Lyall, September 2022

A welcome return to Sogut after an absence of four years. So pleased to see that little has changed (although the new shop is a major improvement!). The villa is lovely and the verandah is the perfect spot for people watching in the morning and with a sundowner.

Richard and Liz, September 2022

Our first time in Sogut and we hope to return. It may sound cliched but it's a truly wonderful place.

Andy and Caroline, September 2022

Our second visit to Sogut but first time in the lovely Villa Ruyam in the heart of the village. No need to travel anywhere else there is everything we wanted here.

Carolyn Williams, July 2022

Absolutely beautiful villa with everything you could want. Lovely balcony overlooking the sea to watch the sunset. Pool area surrounded by lots of trees and flowers, always somewhere to sit in the shade or the sun. Very peaceful area with a few restaurants on the waters edge along with the boats.

Elaine Denman, June 2022

Once again Simpson show themselves to be an excellent travel company. We've visited Sogut several times but this was our first stay at Villa Ruyam and we felt immediately at home. It's a lovely villa, very well looked after by Meltem. Its position within easy walking distance of several great restaurants is perfect and the grounds are beautiful and well designed. As ever, Jessica looked after us perfectly and it was lovely to see her again. We had a fantastic holiday and are already wondering when we can return.

Leah Milton, May 2022

This villa is really lovely. We have been to Sogut twice before and this villa is the best. Sitting out in the evening by the pool is an experience I want again. Well done Simpsons.

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.

Centred around the seaside town of Bozburun itself, famous for boat building, this discreetly luxurious destination is a protected conservation area, made for leisurely boat trips, sea-view restaurants and walks along the cliff tops.
