"Villa Nurtan really is a little oasis – we loved the villa, so many thoughtful extras made our stay extra special. It was beautifully clean and well maintained. The garden and pool are beautiful, so very lovely just spending time relaxing outdoors. We felt we experienced a real sense of rural Turkey – grew to love the call of the Imam from the minaret and the local people we met were very welcoming and friendly. A great holiday and lovely place to stay, all round!"
Lyndsey and family

"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. We didn't leave the villa, apart from exploring the village and going to stock up on food, and on the final day we spent our time at the Dogan hotel, who were very accommodating. You have a beautiful villa and it was the best holiday we've had in years."
"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."

"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 wife, must have put in to create it."
"Villa was absolutely beautiful, very well appointed and extremely comfortable. wifi was great as were all the facilities, particularly liked the well stocked garden - we made a very tasty saksuka from the lovely vegetable garden."
Fiona and Family
"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."
"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."
"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. Our teenage daughter thoroughly enjoyed the pool as well as the opportunity to paraglide, catamaran and horse ride. In addition we thoroughly enjoyed a four-day cruise aboard a gulet. So well looked after and so well fed! A great holiday."
John, Sue and Emma Chapman
"Beautiful villa,beautiful location. Would definitely recommend this villa to anyone who enjoys the good things in life."
"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. We were also taken to the local school by the team. They were an absolute delight and made us feel really welcome. Their generosity was humbling."
"There aren't enough superlatives to describe Villa Nurtan. If you haven't stayed at John & Ann'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."
We have had a wonderful lazy two weeks here in this beautiful place…The place is beautiful and well equipped and everyone has been incredibly friendly and helpful.
Nicky and family
"Thank you for the most relaxing holiday we have had in years. We did nothing at all except relish the peace of the villa, with an occasional foray into the village to stock up on supplies. The whole team looked after us expertly and caringly from the moment we first made contact until the moment we left. Thank you for a perfect holiday"

"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."
David Trickett and family
"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!"
"What a stunning place! A wonderful villa set in the heart of breathtakingly beautiful scenery."
"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."
"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."
Charlotte and Ridda
"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!"
Jacquie and Mike
"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."
Marion and Allan
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!
Beverley and Martin

"What a wonderful place! We have enjoyed every moment we have spent in this beautiful villa, so carefully tendered by the local team."
Emma and Peter
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.
