We had a wonderful stay at the Almond Cottage. The location is perfect - close to several great beaches - and even during the high season feels isolated and relaxing. Deniz provided a comprehensive listing of recommended restaurants, beaches, and sightseeing opportunities around Datça. We had some of our favorite meals during our entire Turkey vacation in Datça thanks to Deniz's recommendations. The cottage is well appointed and we received a warm welcome from our hosts upon arrival. The grounds of the cottage are beautiful and we took the opportunity to do some stargazing since we were fortunate to stay during the Perseid meteor shower. We had an excellent time thanks to Deniz's warm hospitality. Our five day visit was not nearly long enough!

Hi Ken, thank you so much. It was also a pleasure for us to have you at Almond Cottage. It was great that your visit coincided with the meteor shower. It's one of the amazing things to witness in Datca's unpolluted skies. Thank you again for taking care of our place. You're always welcome back!

We had an amazing week at Almond Cottage. It was by far the best airbnb experience so far. The location is perfect with amazing views and beautiful, pristine beaches only a short drive away. We also swam in the sea at night to experience the "yakamoz." Restaurants in the area are fantastic as well as the scenic drives to Datca or Knidos (see it at sunset). Each morning I took a good hike up into the hills which was a great way to start the day. Each night we gazed up at the starry night sky from the beautiful veranda. We were there in the highest part of the season, but because of the location, it didn't feel too crowded. The cottage itself was fantastic--well equipped, clean, well-designed, and tastefully decorated. The outdoor shower was a bonus for post-beach clean up. Deniz was a great host and we would love to go back. It was simply amazing.

Staying at The Almond Cottage was the absolutely perfect base for a wonderful beach holiday on the Datca peninsula. Deniz and Karl are excellent hosts making us immediately feel welcome and at home. The cottage is well equipped with all the essentials and outdoor shower is a luxury. The linens are nice and everything very comfortable. We enjoyed all the surrounding beaches with great recommendations by Deniz and Karl. The wifi was good and Deniz was quick to respond to emails and helped us to set up a boat tour to Knidos. We hope to return for another visit and wouldn't think about staying anywhere else.

Wonderful, wonderful place to stay! Despite arriving past midnight, Karl and Deniz were there to welcome us after a long journey with welcoming faces and a chilled beer (very nice). They were excellent hosts and the welcome pack of food was really appreciated. Almond Cottage was perfect, especially if you are looking for a bit of peace and quiet, very few tourists and the best nights sleep. The cottage was spotlessly clean, really well resourced and has the most amazing sea views in the day and star views at night. There are lots of nice little beaches and restaurants between 5-20 minute drive away but you must be aware that you need a car, you cannot walk to anything, which was fine for us. Would definitely go back again. Thank you for your hospitality.

One of our best holidays ever! We can highly recommend staying at this adorable cottage. Everything was just perfect: The rooms look exactly as shown in the pictures and the view from the veranda is really stunning. There's really nothing you will miss during your stay, the cottage is perfectly equipped, may it be air conditioning, hair-dryer, towels or all kinds of kitchen utensils - everything is there. The beaches in this area are beautiful and can be easily reached by car (only 3 min.). Mesudiye is the perfect place if you want to relax and escape from the crowded city life; nevertheless there's still a lot to explore if you want to (we visited the ancient Greek city Knidos by car and Bodrum by ferryboat for example; both trips were great!). Deniz and Karl are the most helpful and welcoming hosts; as locals they can give you lots of useful tips (regarding restaurants, etc.). They made us feel at home from day 1, and it was a real pleasure meeting them! Thanks a lot Deniz and Karl for a wonderful week!

Nous avons passé une semaine fantastique à Almond Cottage; Nous avions reçu par mail auparavant, toutes les indications pour trouver le logement ( pas de difficultés) et des informations sur la presqu’île de Datça. A notre arrivée, Deniz nous a indiqué les plages les plus proches, leurs caractéristiques et les endroits touristiques à visiter. Le logement correspondait en tous points à celui décrit sur le site, très confortable et très joliment décoré. L'endroit est très reposant , la nature est préservée, pas de plages bondées , petits restaurants en bordure de mer, paysages de collines abritant oliviers et amandiers. La maison dispose d'une vue magnifique sur les îles grecques et la piscine est bien agréable. Il est nécessaire d'avoir un véhicule. C'est avec plaisir que j'y retournerai.

Hallo, wir waren 19 Nächte in Almond Cottage :) ich muss sagen das war einer meiner schönsten und erholsamsten Urlaubstage die ich hatte. Die Umgebung faszinierende Natur und schöne Landschaften. Die Unterkunft sauber und schön eingerichtet. W-lan empfang ist auch super gut. Was mir am meisten gefallen hat war unser Pool. Nicht wie man es üblich mit chlor Wasser kennt, sondern mit Salz. Das gibt der Sache einen natürlichen touch. Deniz und Karl waren super freundlich. Sie gaben uns tipps wo man schön Essen gehen kann einkaufen usw. Das war definitiv nicht das letzte mal das wir dort waren. Wir freuen uns schon auf den nächsten Urlaub dort. Also wer im Urlaub viel wert auf ruhe und relaxen legt, ist hier genau richtig ;)

Hello! We are Deniz & Karl, a Turkish and an English couple. We rent out properties both in Datça, Turkey & Skopelos, Greece.

We fell in love with Datca in 2005, and after discovering this heavenly spot in the village of Mesudiye, we built the ALMOND COTTAGE and its neighboring villa ALMOND LOFT & ALMOND HOUSE in 2009, where we spend most of our time. All the properties are located in the 5000sqm land with olive & almond groves and a small private vineyard. We are two professionals who got away from the madding crowd of the city life and found peace in this unspoiled, authentic and tranquil village in Datca. We still work as consultants but now have new hobbies such as farming, viticulture, winemaking, hiking, cycling and having the most wonderful beach picnics with our friends during off-season. We are happy to share our experience and give you tips to discover your paradise in this unspoiled part of the countryside and experience a unique Mediterranean holiday.

Villa Pinot has been our family get-away since 2009. We're happy to share it with other nature lovers as of 2017 season.

Skopelos is the greenest island in Greece, and Pefkias (where Villa Pinot is located) is its most peaceful and tranquil spot. The dark green pine-tree forest mixes with the deep blue sea and sky, offering an unrivalled natural Mediterranean beauty. You will find yourself in an idyllic land, in a small paradise at the very heart of Greece.
