Vacation Rental Description
Charming Göcek – a place of tranquil beauty on Turkey’s Aegean coast, an area steeped in ancient myth and history. Sheltered by the Taurus Mountains, Göcek village and the bay beyond opens out to the Mediterranean Sea - the setting is simply breathtaking.
Chic,sophisticated but never stuffy, Göcek is a wonderful base for those who seek total relaxation. Its many cafes and restaurants offer traditional Turkish and modern European cuisine, all prepared from local organic produce, its natural food just like it used to be. Göcek is not a large resort; the tree lined harbour and sea front areas can be walked end to end in just 15 minutes, but its difficult to pass so many interesting cafes and resturants without stopping for a refreshing drink or glass of wine. Göcek's compact size means one is quickly accepted by local people as an honoured guest to be welcomed with the very best they have to offer.
