Fantastic luxury Villa Lale is built in solid stone and sleeps 5/6. Private Eco-friendly Pool.
The Datça Peninsula is one of the most beautiful parts of Turkey with unspoilt bays and spectacular scenery.
Welcome to the Datca Peninsula in South West Turkey. It is an area of outstanding natural beauty with stunning scenery and often deserted bays. In this site we want to showcase some of the villages along the peninsula as well as the famous town of Datca. Over the last few years the Government has improved the main road making the whole of the Peninsula now much more accessible from Dalaman (DLM) the nearest airport for visitors.
In Datca you will find a vibrant harbour with easy access to the Greek islands, with Symi being the closest to Datca.
Our luxurious villas in Turkey include free 4G WiFi Internet.
Please book our exclusive villas with eco-friendly private pools directly with us. We are not on any mass market villa or travel agent sites.
The ancient city of Knidos at the tip of the Datca Peninsula is within easy reach from Datca and is an astonishingly large city and is well worth a trip. You can book a yacht charter or local gulet to sail the seas around the Datca Peninsula.
On the road to Datca you will pass lovely villages and see many old windmills as well as a group of modern wind powered electric generating turbines. In Datca there are a number of olive presses and ‘old Datca’ is very pretty and good to wander around.
This is a new site so please contact us with any suggestions for improvement. We have also included information on the Bozburun Peninsula which is opposite the Datca Peninsula, so within easy reach for visitors.

Well what can we say … beautiful villa, wonderful location, great support team – what else would you want?
I just wanted to let you know that we had a fantastic time last week in Turkey. The villa was excellent and we were well looked after by all your friends and colleagues. As we have enjoyed ourselves so much we would like to book the same week next year.
What a stunning place! A wonderful villa set in the heart of breathtakingly beautiful scenery.
Thank you so much for such a fantastic holiday. You villa is absolutely stunning as is the surrounding village. I can honestly say that I don’t think I’ve ever been as relaxed in my life! Our whole ‘Turkey Experience’ has been one which will live long in the memory.
Thank you so much for the opportunity to stay in this beautiful place and for the special touches you provided in the villa. We look forward to staying again soon!
The website doesn’t do justice to the villa. It was everything we were hoping it would be and more. Only 25 minutes from Marmaris, but might as well have been 1,000 miles. The countryside is so peaceful and the local villages so picturesque, just what is needed to unwind and recharge the batteries.
Thank you very much for renting us your wonderful villa. We had a fabulous time, the weather was lovely, and the villa very comfortable. We really liked the pool and spent a lot of time in there. We thought that the team were lovely very helpful. Meliha the housekeeper was really sweet, she even folded our clothes up!
Thank you for a wonderful week in Orhaniye. You seem to have thought of everything. Local knowledge of how to enjoy yourself, a really comfortable villa, all mod cons and a lovely pool.We would recommend it to anyone. hope to return in the future to sample more of your excellent hospitality.
This was a wonderful holiday , ‘Just brilliant ‘ said our son. The villa,coast and landscape were lovely but what made it particularly special for us were the close and friendly links with local people and the community that are part of what John has built.
We are having a GREAT time – FANTASTIC. Although this is our second visit we still marvel at how everything works, having stayed in a few villas around the world, as I am sure you have, you know what I mean. The kitchen for example is superb. ….Oh yes, and I suppose it is only a formality, we are having a FANTASTIC time – don’t plan on going anywhere else ever!
Very nice villa, just as described on the website. Quite rural, although that’s just what we were looking for. Very peaceful and relaxing, nothing to disturb you, no english pubs/bars, no nightclubs, just an oasis of peace and tranquility. Bliss.
A marvellous holiday – flew by too quickly!Superb villa extremely comfortable with everything you could wish for. We spent a very relaxing time by the pool or on the verandah, enjoying glorious weather. We really felt like part of the village community – very friendly people.
The Villa was excellent and in a really beautiful location, we can certainly see the attraction of Turkey and especially this particular location. You have certainly thought of everything when it comes to the ‘home from home’ features and the appliances, as the cook I couldn’t see anything that was missing from the kitchen.
What an amazing place and what a wonderful week! The villa was just awesome and was a great base to explore an unspoilt, quiet part of Turkey. We were able to walk straight from the villa into stunning hills with their green forests and the Mediterranean is only ten minutes away in the other direction.
A Spotlessly clean villa in a fantastic garden setting. It had every amenity we could wish for, and lots of ones that we didn’t expect. The pool was a great temperature and very refreshing, being free from chlorine, and the barbecue area was excellent. I will definitely recommend your villas to others.
This is our first visit to Turkey and our stay at Villa Anni has been perfect. The villa is fantastic and very much a credit to John and Ann for making it such a wonderful holiday retreat. All in all, this has been one of our most enjoyable holidays and we will definitely return to do the other things time did not allow us on this occasion.
This is our second visit to Turkey – but – this one gave us a real sense and taste of the Turkish Delights!
I have been to lots of villas in lots of countries and Villa Lale ranks number one – it is a seriously beautiful villa in a stunning location and absolutely everything is provided for the perfect holiday. Oh and the weather is pretty damn good too!
We had a great time at Orhaniye and Villa Lale. The villa had everything we needed (even the toaster) and the skype phone was a particularly thoughtful and very useful accessory. The peace and tranquility that the villa provides is priceless.
What an awesome place!I felt like a king being able to return to Villa Nurtan after being out for the day. The quality of the whole place is incredible!In between relaxing I was busy taking photos to send back home (to gloat about where I was!). An amazing place that I cannot wait to return to. I’d recommend it to anyone! It truly is a luxury villa!
We had a wonderful week at Villa Nurtan: you have created a very beautiful place. We were very happy with our stay, and would happily recommend Villa Nurtan to our friends.
Beautiful villa,beautiful location. Would definitely recommend this villa to anyone who enjoys the good things in life.
The villa was immaculate with stunning surroundings. Orhaniye is a perfect place to relax and unwind. It’s peaceful and beautiful to explore. The smells of the flowers will bring me and my partner back alone. Can’t wait to come back.
We have to say it was wonderful to stop in your villa. It is quite superb in terms of quality and location. the pool was just the place to dive into after a strenuous morning reading and tasting the local “EFES”.
Villa Nurtan far exceeded our expectations…To enjoy such a beautiful house, Orhaniye and the warmth of the local people was a wonderful experience. The gardens are beautiful. We particularly enjoyed the chlorine free waters of the pool. We’ve had a lovely, lovely holiday…
What a fabulous place you have made! We can see why you love the area so much. We spent a very relaxing time at Orhaniye and will recommend your villa to everyone!
This has been one of the best holidays that we have ever had. The villa is superb and it has been lovely having the occasional Turkish tea with your team, who kept the pool immaculate.
We have had the most glorious 2 weeks here and saddened by our departure tomorrow. We honestly do not want to leave!! We thank you profusely for opening your home to us and for all the kind, generous and thoughtful touches and comforts of your “home away from home”. We have loved every minute, and have such fond memories that will last a lifetime.
We’ve had a great time, your house is superb. We have been coming to Orhaniye for over 10 years and we have enjoyed this stay in Villa Nurtan better than any other. The Villa Nurtan is truly wonderful and a testimony to the effort you, and your team must have put in to create it.
What a wonderful place! We have enjoyed every moment we have spent in this beautiful villa, so carefully tendered by your team.
When we saw the villa being built last year we thought that it would be something special – and it is! What a team you have assembled! The guided tour was so helpful. Then we explored the ‘welcome pack’ and the furnishings and were almost awestruck by the thought put into them.
We had a wonderful time and as you predicted we didn’t really want to leave. Everyone was very helpful and welcoming and I know we will be back again in the future. You have a beautiful villa and it was the best holiday we’ve had in years.
A perfect villa in a beautiful, unspoilt part of rural Turkey. Everything was so perfect. Very easy to book and then sit back and do no more except get to the airport. Highly recommended.
The villa and surrounding valley are absolutely beautiful. …the valley is stunning and the villa a fantastic design providing plenty of space, sun and shelter.
I’m pleased to say that the villa is every bit as good as you described it if not better. We all had a fabulous time and everyone really enjoyed it. I will send you a few of the hundreds of photos we took – they might be good for you to use to show how family oriented the villa can be. Can you pass our thanks on to the team for looking after us and we look forward to returning in the near future.
We had a fantastic visit!Must dos:Turn of all the lights in the villa and watch the shooting stars. Leave the pool lights on and watch the bats. Do a local boat trip. Support team were an absolute delight and made us feel really welcome.
If ever there was an advert for the pleasure of a more rural and relaxed way of life this is it. Thanks for discovering this idyllic spot and then sharing it with others! Can’t wait to recharge our batteries again next year.
A magical villa in an exceptional village with the most glorious people, I would recommend this beautiful villa to anyone looking for that special holiday experience.
Villa Anni was perfect and we really enjoyed it. I thought the amount of care you have put into furnishing it shone through and makes the holiday even more enjoyable. Thanks and well done on achieving such beautiful villas in keeping with the surroundings. Loved the village and the people are so friendly and kind.
Perfect villa, perfect location, perfect holiday…
The perfect mix of a luxury chill out retreat, rural setting and accessibility to explore the Bozburun Peninsula, This was the best possible start to our married life! An amazing experience! Fantastic. Best two weeks we have ever had.
We really had an enchanting holiday in the Villa, really special. Loved the people, the culture, and all the lovely people who looked after us. The aspect was well and truly awesome, can’t wait to return.
We had a fantastic holiday in Orhaniye and your beautiful villa, you have certainly thought of every thing that we would need to make a very comfortable stay in villa Lale. The Turkish people, especially the neighbours are really friendly. We will be thinking of returning again, hopefully next year.
This is a beautiful villa and everything is perfect. The pool is amazing, the locals are welcoming, the food’s delicious and the scenery is unbelievable.
There aren’t enough superlatives to describe Villa Nurtan. If you haven’t stayed at John’s house before, I am sure you will now have discovered just how wonderful it is! ….sitting on the veranda of Villa Nurtan hearing the Iman’s ‘call to prayers’ is, for us, part of the wondrousness of Turkey and this Turkey/Orhaniye/Villa Nurtan experience.
A stunning villa that lived up to the photographs and the excellent information provided on the website. To have knowledgeable and friendly locals on hand to provide advice when required enabled us to make even better use of Villa Nurtan and the stunning locality.
