NEW FOR 2021

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. A private jetty and bathing platform afford another wonderful vantage point and a cooling dip in the sea is an appealing proposition at any time; there are sunbeds here too for a little snooze above the water or relaxing with a book.

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. Villa Sevdam is just along the waterfront; booked together the villas afford larger groups or two families travelling together a wonderful opportunity to enjoy this special spot.
