Living in a tiny piece of paradise

You wont find many lovely views that compare with the islands and small bays around Gocek. Gocek features crystal azure blue water and tiny coves - that makes for perfect swimming off the islands and beautiful sailing waters offshore. You will never tire of the pine forested mountain backdrop and you can walk in the countryside and enjoy the nice pine aromas around you, so good for clearing the nose and giving you a sense of peace! The local Turks you should find quiet and good mannered and just get on with their village life, where the family is still important and they still have much respect for their elders. Eating at home and hospitality offered to guests are still very much their natural ways which they like to indulge in. The local restauranteurs will relish to welcome you into their restaurants with a bit of charm and pizazz! But you will surely enjoy the tasty treat of simple and organic grown foods as are gathered in this Mediterreanean region. The yachting scene is very special and you will feel that cosmopolitan buzz from the visiting foreigners when the spring warms up into summer. Even there are some surprises - the loud sound of drums and melody echoing from the central open theatre on a weekend evening signals a local wedding - it will never cease to amaze you on a warm, balmy night! If you want, you can feel like Shirley Valentine for an evening - some shore-lined restaurants will practically put your table on the shingle beach, right next to the waters edge, where you can enjoy a local glass of wine and some freshly caught fish! Come and marvel at this small piece of paradise.
