Right on the peninsula of Kaş, Villa Yakomoz is located close to the seafront guaranteeing breathtaking views across the sea and towards the Greek Island Kastellorizo (Meis), which seems to be within reach.
Villa Yakomoz is situated in a small compound called Oğlakçık, one of two semi-detached houses. The property is very well tended and the houses, built of natural stone, fit into the landscape of the rocky coast very well. The pool is within a colorful garden with palm trees, bougainvillea and oleander. This exclusive holiday house is ideal for a relaxed holiday and a perfect starting point for exciting trips to the ancient sights at the Lycian Coast of Turkey.
Modern civilization began right here in the Tigris-Euphrates river valley. Also known as the Fertile Crescent or Mesopotamia, this is the place where, six thousand years ago, agriculture, writing and mathematics were brought into widespread use.The term "Middle East" comes from the British navy, which used it to describe the countries on the trade route from Europe to India and China. Everything from Afghanistan to Morocco may possibly be classified as "middle eastern", depending on whom you ask -- and when.Only a partial list of past Empires in the middle eastern territory includes Sumeria, Babylonia, Persia, the Ottoman Empire and the Roman Empire!When northern Europe was still lurking about in slimy cold stone castles playing chess, the Middle East was enjoying the flowers of poetry, luxurious craftsmanship, music and literature. In fact, the Renaissance in Europe was partly inspired by stories brought back from the middle east by travelers along the trade route.Strategic location, religious history and the world's largest supply of crude oil have kept the Middle East at the center of world activity for centuries. The saga continues.Text by Steve Smith.
