The Turquoise Coast/Lycia region
The villa is located just 300 meters from the beach of Kucukbuk (which means small bay in Turkish) and a small walk from the city center in the beautiful bay of Gundogan.
Gundogan is a cozy and relaxing town that maintains a fantastic vibe. The town has avoided the detriments of mass tourism and is situated in a beautiful bay between impressive rock formations and pine trees. Gundogan has a wonderful sandy beach about 750 meters and a small attractive port. The beach is the perfect sport to freely enjoy the sun and the murmuring sea.
Gundogan was a former fishing village and maintains much of its old charm. You are still able to walk on roads where ancient Greeks also trod centuries earlier. The whole region is sensationally quiet and is the ideal place for nature lovers.
In the centre of the town there is a superb well equipped shopping mall with two supermarkets.
Restaurants and bars are located near to the beach where you can enjoy a light snack or intimate evening drink.
In summer, the area benefits from a refreshing constant breeze. This wonderful breeze has made the area very popular with windsurfers.
The weekly market of Gundogan is definitely worth a visit. Carpets, mats and Turkish vases are all made locally making them the best place to pick up a genuine and well-priced souvenir.
The town and its immediate area boasts a wealth of culture and history and in the volcanic rocks above Gundogan, you can see the tombs that are carved out of the rock faces.
The local buses, called dolmus, run regularly to the cosmopolitan city of Bodrum which is only 25 km away.
Yal?kavak is the nearest town and also worth a visit with its impressive marina and loads of (fish) restaurants. Yalikavak is a 15 minute drive away and offers a good shopping street, a marina, beach, bars and restaurants. On the road between Gundogan and Yalikavak are two major supermarkets, Tansas and Migros, where you can stock up on provisions.
At Ortakent (half-way between Yalikavak and Bodrum) is a large water park. It is opposite the KIPA hypermarket which is part of the Tesco chain and sells many well known Tesco products as well as local and international brands. Gumbet and Bodrum are only 30 minutes away for those want the busy night life and bustling resorts. Turkbuku is the spot where the (inter)national jet set visits on their private yachts and worth to see.
Also look out for the markets, typically the Turgutreis one on Saturdays. Yalikavak is usually on Thurdays and Gundogan on Wednesdays. There are no fixed prices so don't forget to haggle.
Hiring a car is the easiest way to get around, but you can manage without one. If you're staying for a few weeks you may like to save some money and shed the car for some of the time and use the local dolmus, or mini-bus service, which operates cheaply and efficiently throughout the peninsula. Many people hitch around the area and it is not uncommon for lifts to be offered by drivers who are going the same way as you. But if you really want to see the peninsula, we advise to hire a car, which is relatively cheap here. Just to go around and see the peninsula. Contact us for price details as we may offer guests good rates.
