The Bodrum / Gumusluk Village area
The Bodrum peninsula has 5000 years of history, and the ancient historic sites and monuments are well worth a visit .

The apartment is less than a 5 minute drive away, where Roman remains can be found beneath the sea.

We love this area of the peninsular with its selection of restaurants, beaches and friendly locals. There's plenty to do if you are active with a wide range of water sports available at far cheaper prices than else where in Europe. Or if you like you can simply stay at the beautifully equipped apartment and watch the ships sail by from your sunbed and enjoy the privacy of your own pool.

We stayed on this apartment for a week with my husband and my parents in August 2011. The property has breathtaking views, especially at sunset. We found the flat very clean, cosy, brand new, nice decoration with all the things you would need to spend a great week with a family. It is not the largest flat you can have but a family with 2 small kids should be fine.
There is a good sized shared swimming point right in front of the garden. We had the swimming pool to ourselves as the flat upstairs was empty. I don't know how it would be if the above flat had 4 kids using the pool while we were there. We were very lucky, I guess
As the property is high on the hills, it never gets hot so no need to worry about the 40C you normally get in Bodrum. We hardly used the AC. It was quite windy (one night we had to have dinner inside because of the wind), but I definitely prefer that to the hot temperature down in central Bodrum
You definitely need a car to stay at this property, however this is not unusual in Bodrum, apart from the Gumbet area which you should definitely avoid anyway. The road to the property was pretty bad but I am sure it will be improved
Booking was very easy and effective and we didn't have any issues throughout the holiday.
We just bought our own flat in an other part of Bodrum (Gundogan) but otherwise I would definitely consider staying here.

Not the easiest place to find in the dark. Royal Valley is not that well known by airport transfer drivers or locals in Gumusluk. That said once you wake up the following morning you are treated to magnificent views to sea.
The apartment is a good size and well equipped. The outside patio area and comfortable sofas ensured a lot of time was spent outside enjoying the views.
The supermarket is in easy walking distance if you are reasonably fit, as the area is quite hilly. The construction of the new road ( which is estimated to be completed in six months) will bring the dolmus service to the back of the property and will make the trip to and from the village/ harbour a cheap alternative to taxis for the less active.
Good restaurants, friendly people, quiet location and spectacular views ensured an excellent holiday.
