Alp Suites Safran - Two nights
Beautiful, modern and stylish accommodation in Akyaya, Mulga, a beautiful coastal town bordered by mountains, the sea and a creek, and Byzantine homes!
Akyaka was another new part of Turkey for us, two hours south of Bodrum. Alp Suites delivered and more. This two-bedroom apartment is perched on the side of a hill, and you are surrounded by mountains, with beautiful views across the valley of Gökova Bay and the castle currently being restored.
The design is Byzantine, yet the interior is that of a very stylish beach house; think whitewash floors, extensive artwork, and classic interior styling. Very well equipped for cooking at home, as a spacious kitchen with floor to ceiling windows to enjoy the view.
We loved the views and the two full showers with plenty of hot water; the only thing was some minor cleaning of the sunbed by the simply stunning large shared pool (10m in length). Sally enjoyed doing some laps while I soaked up the sun.
A short stroll away, approximately 15 minutes from the Çay Creek, some beautiful waterside restaurants, and a few supermarkets (however, these markets lack fresh produce and meat, so you need to visit the centre of town, about 25 min walk, or 5 min drive).
We walked into the centre of Akyaka. It truly is beautiful, a quaint town full of Byzantine architecture, crystal clear waters and birdlife, engulfed in a forest of pine trees, mountains, and a lovely beach, something for everyone.
This apartment is better suited to those with a car; however, we handled it, as we dined out twice at the most magical Halil's Place, approximately 15 minutes walk.
The apartment is also more suited for holidaymakers as it lacked a work area for us digital nomads to work comfortably.
