Discover the secrets of Akkaya Valley near Dalaman

Discover the secrets of Akkaya Valley near Dalaman
Written on: 13 July 2018

If the idea of owning a Turkish property in a popular tourist resort isn't your style, Turkey Homes may have discovered the ideal place for you - but shush - it's a secret!

Akkaya Valley is often referred to as the 'hidden' or 'secret valley'. It is a captivating location and remarkably untouched given its close proximity to the popular resort of Dalyan (25 km) and Dalaman International Airport (15 km). It's hard not to fall for the beauty of the area. Framed by the Taurus mountains and lying on the banks of Lake Koycegiz, you can sit and unwind to the gentle sounds of nature, look up to see a white tailed eagle soaring high above, or simply enjoy a drink or traditional Turkish meal in one of a handful of local restaurants tucked amongst the rare liquid amber trees surrounding the lake and river.

About Akkaya Valley

Akkaya Valley is easy to miss. Tucked away along a long winding road, signs are not prominent, almost as if the area wants to retain its air of mystery. Over the past 10 years, those seeking a less touristy location have started to discover Akkaya. A well established developer, and thankfully one that respects nature and the environment, signed an agreement with local authorities for water and development rights to part of the valley. They have now built a number of exquisite private properties in Akkaya. This has given a new life to the sleepy village. There are now a few little mini-markets and some local restaurants including the 'Birds Nest' where diners can enjoy traditional breakfasts or dishes either in the restaurant itself or on platforms built high into the trees, the 'birds nests' overlooking the lake - quite charming and unique! Turkey Homes are proud to be working alongside the developer representing their properties for sale in Akkaya as well as organising custom designs for our clients looking to build their dream homes in the area.  

Why a property in Akkaya Valley?

Far more than your 'normal' tourist resort. Akkaya Valley will suit those looking to stay clear of your 'normal' resort locations. The area is ideally suited to those looking for privacy or who wish to stay away from the dull beats of nightclubs or touts beckoning you in for an English breakfast. In Akkaya you can relax knowing you are more likely to spot a wild tortoise or lazy lizard wandering past your window than a tourist!

More property and land for your money. The area is developing. Chances are the value of property and land in Akkaya will rise significantly as the valley develops. Akkaya is an area of natural beauty therefore falls under strict building regulations. If you are looking for more land and property for your money, Akkaya is a great option to consider.

Flexible payment terms

Although you do find ready built and resale properties in Akkaya that normally require full payment on sale, many of the new luxury villas are on a custom build or off-plan basis. This means payments can be spread throughout the build process and amendments made to the designs and interiors where the architect allows. Building a property from scratch, with the full support of your experienced Turkey Homes consultant and the developer, ensures that you get the home and location you desire on payment terms suited to you. Please contact us for details.

Easy Access. The valley of Akkaya is just 15km drive away from Dalaman International Airport flying regular direct flights to most UK airports and many international destinations throughout the summer and via Istanbul year around - getting to and from property in Akkaya couldn't be easier!
