Welcome to our selection of holiday homes to rent in Gocek, Turkey.

Göcek (or Kalimche as it was known in ancient times) is just a simple town in the district of Fethiye in the Mugla Province of Turkey.

According to the legends, Icarus landed in the sea around the Göcek area straight after his infamous flight to escape the tower where he was imprisoned.

Göcek was used by ships as a harbour for loading and unloading any and all chrome ore that has been collected from mines under the local mountains during what was known as the Ottoman period.

Today however, Göcek hosts the biggest yacht tourism in the region, with Six Marina's to it.

A prominent and very distinctive charatceristic of the town however, is the fact that it harbours many islands and coves which are located in a large and very secluded bay. In 1988, Göcek was registered as an Area of Special Protection, and is therefore unable to accommodate multi-story buildings, the most floors that will be allowed for tourist accommodation are two floors for anything. Göcek has become renowned for being a peaceful and a quiet settlement area and perfect to visit time and time again.

There is heavy yacht traffic in the Göcek town harbour since Göcek is the main loading and unloading location for Blue Cruises, the harbour is quiet and safe for and travellers from international locations, as the bay is very secluded.
