“High quality beach bungalows in a quiet and stunning location”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 18, 2012

Selimiye is a small seaside resort which these days caters mainly for Turkey's elite, coming for summer breaks from Istanbul, Izmir and Ankara. To spot 100+ Audis, Mercedes, BMWs etc in a single day is not uncommon. Add to that a small armada of expensive yachts and motor cruisers, both domestic and international and you know the place must be doing something right. There are no big hotels here, just a selection of small boutique hotels and numerous pensions, B&Bs etc. Most establishments are of high quality and equally high priced due to the genre of tourist that now frequent Selimiye.

However, saying all that, the place does not have an air of false pretence or exclusiveness about it, and we found it still felt laid back and, apart from the actual marina front, quite genuine and inviting. There are numerous beach restaurants offering high quality dining, but equally, there are still 'normal' places to frequent if that better suits your budget or style.

This summer, by accident, we came upon Müne Motel & Beach Bungalows. It is a small, family run establishment away from the main centre and marina area. It is set right on the beach and offers peace and quiet in a more genuine setting, but with all the stunning views the 'in town' establishments can offer.

They have 6 new large wooden bungalows, and 3-4 studio apartments. Each has a large double (or twin) with either a 3rd single bed, or space to place one upon request. The bungalows are large, some 20+m2, with a private shower room and w/c, plenty of hot water, air conditioning (free of charge), very clean towels and bed linen, wardrobe, large comfortable beds and a small veranda with table and chairs. A good standard of Turkish breakfast is included, prepared fresh and served in an open, but covered, dining area right by the beach. Payment is accepted by either cash or credit card and prices are per room. Like all small places, parking in Selimiye is problematic, however this place has plenty of off road private parking, although you have to drive through the boat yard to get there (but then you park within 5 metres of your accommodation!)

Fatma, who owns and runs the motel, is very attentive and runs around continuously serving her guests, with her lovely old eccentric aunt adding that genuine village feel to the place. She lives on site and is always on hand, and has sufficient waiting and housekeeping staff to keep everything clean and tidy.

The beach is not actually private, but apart from maybe 2-3 others, you only share with other guests. Mostly there was 3-10 people there, as others went out on boat trips to the islands. The beach is small stones and some sand, with good quality sun-loungers and cushions provided, plus a few pear/bean bag seats. No sun shades, but there are trees right there on the beach that provide all day shade if you want. The water is crystal clear, warm, with quite a large shallow area and access to immediate deep water for swimming from a small jetty, again right on the beach. The views are as stunning as anywhere on that coast. We might live here (some 90 mins away), but we never tire of this area. From your beach bed, you look out across the calm bay to the small island fort (see foto), and can see the yachts come and go.

Fatma's husband operates a boat business, chartering yachts, hence the motel and surrounding places are much like a boat-building yard... but that all adds to the flavour and makes it a much more genuine setting than the 'polished' places in town. He offers or can arrange yacht and boat trips which many guests enjoyed.

The motel is cheaper than most places in Selimiye, but of no less quality, in fact, we couldn't fault the place, having stayed there 5 times this summer (July-September). It was nearly always fully booked all through the season, which tells something about the place.

Room Tip: Bungalow 1 is the closest to the beach. Or the upstairs studio has great views, set back from the be...
