It’s tempting to say that this little hideaway is all about the views, and they are indeed breathtaking. You can’t help but feel deeply privileged looking out over the endless blue of the bay, the rugged hills of the peninsula and the Greek island of Symi in the far distance, but there’s more to this very charming villa than just a spectacular panorama.
Nestled into the hillside and surrounded by ancient olive trees, the villa sits unobtrusively in its own natural gardens. There are hints of the sort of dwelling that might have originally stood here, in the form of exposed stone walls and chunky wooden beams and doors, but Zeytin Evi is every inch the modern couple’s retreat: light-filled, contemporary and romantically private. You can see the sea from virtually every corner of the house and grounds, whether you’re reading in the seating area beyond the glorious pool or stretched out in the sunshine on a sunbed. And because we know that modern honeymoons sometimes mean that the children come too, there are two lovely bedrooms to accommodate the whole family if required.
Dusk at Zeytin Evi is a particularly magical time of day, as the setting sun burnishes everything with nature’s own rosy glow and the first stars begin to sparkle in the sky above Söğüt. If you feel like dinner out in this very pretty village, it’s just a five minute drive down to the beach and waterfront restaurants which are such a feature here. The entire Bozburun Peninsula is a protected natural environment, criss-crossed by walking paths and littered with ancient remains. The coast offers equally wonderful opportunities to explore, whether you want to charter your own craft or enjoy a relaxed gulet cruise around one of the most beautiful bays in Turkey.

Zeytin Evi is a beautiful villa and one of the best we have stayed in. Lots of room with good quality furnishings, in particular the outside furniture and sunbeds. The grounds are very well maintained and spacious. The views are outstanding and the Söğüt area is lovely part of the Bozburun peninsula. Quiet village life, but with more than enough restaurant options that you don’t need to venture far. The taxi to the seafront is only a short 5-minute drive, so we never had the need to use our car during the evening. We really enjoyed our two weeks there and getting to know the village, as well as being part of this friendly community during our stay. Thank you Simpson Travel and your local representative, Jessica, for helping make this a great family holiday.

Thank you for another memorable holiday. Zeytin Evi – we’ve tried the rest, but we’ve settled on the best! We will definitely be back.
Mrs Redmond – July 2018
A great holiday in super villa.
Val & Alan Savery – June 2018
We have enjoyed a wonderful fortnight in this beautiful villa – the views are amazing, forever changing with the different light during the day and the sunsets are amazing! Enjoyed walking the many tracks and footpaths in and around the village – lovely to see the local villagers and their small holdings – just hope this peaceful part of Turkey doesn't get spoilt by too many tourists!! Well done Simpson Travel for yet another amazing location – definitely off the beaten track!!!
Sue & Andy – October 2017
Our tenth visit to Söğüt and all as lovely as ever. The villa is splendid (overall the best we have had), Vilda has kept all looking good and terrific to have a garden with well cared for lawn (unusual for Turkey). Jessica is very much more than the usual 'rep' and her expertise, efficiency and smile have been invaluable. As usual the glory of Söğüt is in the wonderful friendly people, inspiring views and all the fabulous walks )Taslica to Serce is a trip through the old and traditional Turkey – two hours each way). Just the most relaxing and enjoyable holiday where my stress quickly vanished. Next year already booked!
Michael and Alison – September 2017
First time to Zeytin Evi and it will not be our last! Amazing holiday, even the teenagers enjoyed the quiet and peaceful Söğüt. Jess was super helpful and Vildan did a great job of keeping the house and gardens looking spectacular. Can recommend the waterfalls (we got there before 10am and had the pools to ourselves). Markets are well worth a visit – in Söğüt, its on Monday. Fish and meat from the local shops are also good.
Jo, Steve, Phil and Fiona – July 2017
One of the best holidays to Turkey we have experienced. Absolutely everything perfect from start to finish. Simpson Travel will find 'the right property for the right person'. Thank you Simpson Travel.
Mrs Hazley – May 2017
Zeytin Evi is a perfect villa. Everything and anything we needed. The views are wonderful and it's such a peaceful place. The local people are very welcoming and couldn't do enough for us. Fantastic fresh food made for a wonderful holiday. Nothing was too much trouble for Jessica and her local knowledge was excellent. We could go on but it was just a fabulous place, making for a fabulous holiday. Thank you.
Chris and Ellen Billington Hughes – May 2017
We love Söğüt and Zeytin Evi. It will be very difficult to keep us away from this truly spectacular location, friendly people and a taste of real Turkey; we are missing it already!
Mr Back – September 2016
Zeytin Evi was wonderful. Amazing views and very well equipped. The location was very quiet and very special and unspoiled.

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.
