The nearest shops are in the village, a mile away. Here you will find the basics (in terms of small mini-marts), which sell all the essentials, and a small market on a Tuesday. For more significant food shopping, it is around 10 minutes to Yerkesik, with a supermarket, a butcher, petrol, etc (and also the nearest ATM), or 20 minutes to a large Migros.
Muğla, as a major town, also has all the other shops you would expect – and a large market every Thursday.
If you are staying in one of the self-catering properties, we are happy to do a preliminary shop for you to ensure that you have the essentials when you arrive - and we will happily deliver your delicious Turkish bread for breakfast.
Places to Eat
The easiest choice is of course our own restaurant. This serves a traditional village breakfast, light options for lunch, and a limited but delicious evening meal, using locally sourced seasonal products.
Should you wish to eat out for a change, Yenice is a local farming village, with all the facilities local farmers need, such as a couple of tea shops, a school, 3 mosques, and even a blacksmith.
It also has a couple of cafés, in particular an excellent pide salon (also does takeaway).
There is a very good local restaurant in the neighbouring village of Yerkesik - about 5km. A three course meal with a beer will be less than £10 a head. Their speciality is the lamb tandır. Little English is spoken, but they will be delighted to see you, and will take you round the kitchen so that you can choose what you want.
Slightly further afield, and more up-market is Damla Deresi. Proper menus, and (some) English spoken. Set in a beautiful canyon, eat on a table above a stream with fish and turtles swimming underneath.
There are further restaurants on the ‘main road’ near the supermarkets, but for a full range of traditional restaurants / bars, your best option is to travel into Akyaka, mainly Turkish, and with the choice of eating along the edge of the beach, or dining at the beautiful and famous river restaurants, which specialise in fish, and are set beside the crystal clear waters of the Azmak river.
Muğla also has many restaurants, geared more towards locals than holiday makers, and just outside, the traditional 'coffee houses' (which are actually full-blown restaurants).
