Selimiye is a lovely, quiet & picturesque seaside village that remains the epitome of an authentic Turkish summer holiday. Village life meanders along at wonderfully slow pace, with the locals out on their fishing boats or escaping the summer heat in one of the tea houses dotted along the main road. The village follows a natural curve around Selimiye Bay, with a selection of wonderful seafood restaurants and shops along the waterfront. Set on the hill overlooking the village, Villa Gelincik makes use of its natural terraces to provide a wonderful outdoor sunbathing area, covered terrace with dining table and couches, bbq, a sun-drenched infinity swimming pool, shaded gazebo areas and century old olive trees to snooze your days away under. The private pool is 40 m2 (5mt x 8mt) in size, with a consistent depth of 1.60 mts. There are ove... Read more

We voted this the best vacation ever for us! The villa was even better than the pics. Very private, quiet and secluded, and yet close to everything. There were 6 of us, 5 adults and our toddler granddaughter. There was lots of room for down time. The villa well stocked with basics like salt, pepper, sugar, splices and cling wrap...

A lovely, comfortable villa in an idyllic location, equipped with everything that we could want including all the little extras such as milk and beers already cooling in the fridge on arrival. The reality was even better than the images of the villa online suggest. Gary went out of his way to provide an impeccable service, from ensuring that we...

We are a family with young children, and we stayed a week here with our friends who also have little kids. We had a great time, the house was perfect, as was the garden and the pool. The house is an enjoyable 10 minute walk down to the town via a path. The walk back up might be a bit...

Hi CJ/AD, many many thanks for your lovely review. Really descriptive!...I felt like I was there walking up the path with you haha :) I know AD in particular enjoyed Selimiye as a village.

About the neighbourhood
Enjoy your Selimiye adventure in this unspoilt Turkish fishing village where small, fisherman’s cottages can still be found on the harbour with their white-washed walls and lots of potted plants in discarded, olive oil containers, typically Mediterranean. The village is cradled by two small bays that lead into a larger bay and peninsular with majestic mountains dropping into the sea.

Walking along the harbour you will encounter small restaurants and bars and the occasional shop selling curiosities and the village offers a good selection of restaurants. The delightful, slow pace of life and relaxed atmosphere is ideal for those looking to get away from it all and is perfect for couples and families wishing to experience an authentic taste of Turkish life. You can still see half a dozen or...
Car advised
How to get there
Airport: Dalaman Airport: 145.0 km
Ferry: Marmaris: 45.0 km
The nearest airport is Dalaman, which is 2 hours and 15 minutes away from Villa Gelincik. Dalaman is serviced by all of the UK Tour Operators (Thomas Cook, Thomson, Jewel in the Crown, First Choice, Holidays4U etc)

We recommend car hire during your stay, as the Villa is a little off the beaten track. There is also lots of coastal villages and historical sites to visit. We recommend Koral Turizm and can assist you with your car hire and/or airport transfers.
