- and even more Location ...
(for escapees to Turkey)
GÖCEK - close to the site of the Ikarus escape legend from the nearby Greek island of Crete off the south-west Turquoise Coast - has long been a desirable destination for both Turkish and foreign yachtsmen, as well as a favorite stopover for jet-setters and celebrities alike seeking a land-based hotel in Turkey. This paradise of just four-thousand inhabitants is only 20 minutes by car from Dalaman International Airport, which can be reached in 1 hour from Istanbul or just 2 to 4 hours from most European departures. (Regular flights)
It is not just world-class yachting that makes Göcek a special place; it is the way the culture and natural surroundings blend in such a serene way. Intelligent, environmental development and forestry laws in Turkey ensure that this unique setting is protected, and, since there is no oversupply of hotels, it is never crowded - the majority of visitors are usually sophisticated travellers.
the escape is situated in the peaceful mountain village of Belenpinar - just 5 minutes drive down to Gocek Marina.
With no roadside signposts to the escape, even the paparazzi would have a hard time finding you!
Field Of Dreams...
"Build it and they will come" - so goes the strapline of the hit Kevin Costner movie Field Of Dreams.
We had our first 'coming' in 1995 when we escaped and hired a motorcycle, touring the Turquoise Coast as well as the inner villages of the region.
So, we found the village, bought a field, added our dream, and share with you our vision of a legendary site and legendary service.
Watch our Dragon-flies sunbathe ... our Housemartins skim the pool...our Eagles soar ...or let our Tortoises slow your pace.
The inner courtyard of the escape offers a shaded haven for quiet reflection or a game of chess - Roman style.
