The villa is located about 45km from Bodrum airport. Transfers available on request. The drive takes approx 50 minutes and is very scenic, it includes a long stretch along the coast, stunning views of Bodrum and the St Peters castle and finally glimpses of a bygone Turkey as you climb the hills that form the spine of the peninsula and make your way towards Gumusluk. Car hire is recommended to explore the area, however taxis and Dolmus are available.
The villa is located 3km from Gumusuk, 7km from Yalakavak. Turgutreis is about a 20 minute drive around the coast, and here you will find plentiful bars, restaurants and shops. There are 3 large supermarkets, banks, chemists and post office. On Saturdays there is a huge market that winds around the streets. Bodrum is 25km away. Nearest mini-market is 800m away. Cafe Bar 5 mins walk.
Gumusluk (on the site of the ancient city of Myndos) is the prettiest and most unspoilt village on the Bodrum Peninsula, famous for its fish and seafood restaurants and glorious sunsets. There are a plethora of fine fish and seafood restaurants which must be sampled and you can sit and enjoy your meal by the waters edge. The whitewashed houses are bedecked with flowers - some were originally storehouses for the mandarins and lemons produced locally. 'Rabbit Island' is situated in the middle of the bay and is accessible by a partially sunken causeway offering amazing panoramic views and a cooling paddle across. The Island is home to thousands of rabbits that can be appreciated in their natural surroundings. Walks around Gumusluk are invigorating and rewarding, especially in Spring and early Summer when displays of wild flowers cast their shadows and mingle their fragrance with the smell of the sea. Gumusluk is ideal for diving and snorkelling in the clear calm waters of the bay. It is possible to see the remains of the sunken ruins. The local regular bus service (dolmus) stops 5 minutes walk away from the villas. This gives easy access to Bodrum and the rest of the peninsula. The villa has private car parking space. We would recommend that you hire a car in order to experience all that the area has to offer. However, if you simply want to relax around the villa and pool, with occasional trips to Gumusluk, Bodrum and elsewhere, then the dolmus (and perhaps a taxi from time to time) will be all that you need. The villa is situated about 25km from Bodrum and about 3km from the restaurants and beach at Gumusluk.
