The Houses of Gökçe Gemile
A dream realised.
Now in 2018, after a long and successful career and years of work for permissions, his dream is being realised. A unique destination above a private bay, created in complete harmony with nature.
At the tip of the beautiful Gemile Peninsula, the houses of Gökçe Gemile effortlessly blend into the natural landscape.
Passionate, creative architecture and natural materials combine in the three houses of Gökçe Gemile.
Through the forest to the bay, where the crystal clear waters and private coves await. Seclusion, tranquility and calm.
Waterside breakfasts, a private motorboat and a jeep to explore the peninsula - all part of the unique service.
Thirty years in the making - the Houses of Gökçe Gemile
The crystal clear waters had a unique, almost Caribbean like quality and he dreamed of one day building a house on the headland. But a dream like that is hard to realise - the whole area is heavily protected and there was no construction allowed. Thirty years later, after a long and successful career, an unexpected opportunity presented itself.
He worked tirelessly with innovative architects and the local authorities for permission to create a unique eco-friendly project that would work entirely in harmony with the surrounding nature.
After nearly four years, he secured the chance to build his vision - the place where he wanted to live, and share his love of this extraordinary coast.
The only buildings on the entire peninsula, the Houses of Gökçe Gemile are truly unique and work in perfect harmony with the environment.
No trees were cut or moved during the entire construction - indeed, one of the houses (Gökce) has been built around a Carob tree which stands in the heart of the building.
Each house is built using hand picked (not mined) stone from a different village in Turkey with two of the houses named after the village that has provided its stone: Elmali and Eşen - created from a single ruined dry-stone wall collected there. The third, Gökçe, is named after the bay with stone from Alaçati.
The water is astonishingly blue and perfectly clear. At the base of the trail there is sand, gazebos, a fridge to keep your drinks cool and facilities. Turn left and explore along the bay and numerous coves and places to relax become apparent complete with decking, shade and complete privacy. Turn right and there are more - the whole sweep of the bay is yours. The headland lies beyond the range of day boats - you may see the odd private yacht or fishing boat, but that's it.
We have an absolute passion for service, and helping create those 'perfect moments' that can turn a holiday into a unique experience. With the Houses of Gökçe Gemile, we have worked with Malik (the owner) to include a range of services that will enhance your enjoyment of this extraordinary place.
