This is a villa with the "Wow!" factor. An easy drive from the airport, it is very spacious both inside and out and enjoys one of the very best locations in Torba. It has numerous large terraces, perfect for al fresco dining by the pool or for relaxing in the shade. There is a built in barbecue and a large (6m by 8m) private swimming pool.

We use the villa on a regular basis, so it is furnished to the highest possible standard with all the mod cons we expect at home. There is D-Smart satellite television in the lounge and also D-Smart satellite TV in one bedroom, both with English and foreign stations. There is also WiFi internet access in the villa for those all-important emails!.

With 2 double bedrooms, one twin bedroom and double study/bedroom, the villa is ideal for families/friends who want to enjoy the sporting, cultural or hedonistic pleasures of Bodrum or Turkbuku. The setting is idyllic, and the terraces spacious, so you may not want to leave the villa at all!

The Turquoise Coast/Lycia region

There is more to Bodrum than just the town of Bodrum. The Bodrum peninsula is a landscape of wooded hillsides, rocky outcrops, craggy coves and wind-cooled beaches. It is the most established and cosmopolitan of all the Turkish resort regions, offering excellent all year round facilities and producing or seducing celebrities since antiquity.

It has one of the best climates in Europe with low humidity levels in summer being the result of the gentle sea breezes that cool the shorelines.

Torba is ideally situated to enjoy the very best of what the Bodrum peninsula has to offer, being an equal distance from the hedonism of Bodrum itself and the sophistication of Turkbuku.

Fifteen minutes in one direction Bodrum is a unique resort which combines the diverse elements of ancient and modern life with ease. For the more culturally inclined, with 5000 years of history (Bodrum was the birthplace of Herodotus in 484 B.C. and thrived under Mausolus), a visit to the Castle of St Peter and the Museum of Underwater Archaeology is a must. Ferries travel daily in the summer months from Bodrum to Kos and Rhodes.

In addition, Bodrum has plentiful bars, restaurants and nightlife for the pleasure seeker. Bodrum is the premier spot for night life on the peninsula and is the home of Halikarnas - an open-air club and the hottest night spot on Europe’s most easterly fringes. The Catamaran Club, a floating disco with a glass dance floor, sails every night around 1 a.m. For the less frenetic but still musically inclined, the Bodrum Marina Yacht Club offers excellent food accompanied by jazz and first class live 'cool' music in an elegant setting. There are many other diverse venues offering a variety of entertaining and culinary experiences

15 minutes in the other direction from Torba is Turkbuku, nominated by the New York Times as the St.Tropez of the future where night life is stylish, see-and-be-seen, and refined. Turkbuku offers five-star amenities, such as the Suite Beach Club and Ev Turkbuku and Mavi Suite hotels and a plethora of up-market clubs, each with its own distinct crowd - the "epicentres of Turkbuku’s gilded youthquake" (NY Times)

For the more culturally inclined, the Roman ruins at Ephesus are about 3 hours drive away and many visitors will choose to visit Pamukkale (cotton castle), a thermal water mineral-bath spa famous world-wide for its white travertines. The nearby ruins of Hierapolis, dating back to the third century BC are well worth a visit.

Bodrum

Torba itself is a pretty seaside village and is a favourite destination for Turkish holidaymakers. There are many delightful summer houses surrounded by flower filled gardens lining the small streets. Much of the year the village is relatively unhurried but in summer it is swelled by families from Istanbul coming to their summer residences. The atmosphere is lively and Mediterranean. 'Boutique' hotels are now beginning to spring up in Torba, reflecting its up-market status.

Less than 10 minutes drive from the villa you will find beaches, sailing, water skiing, scuba diving, boat hire, wind surfing, fishing, climbing, mountain biking, tennis, historic sites. Ferries travel regularly from Torba to Didyma, the site of the Temple of Apollo.

Driving alittle further, you will find horse riding, a water theme park and golf.

Whether you would like to spend your days swimming, learning how to sail and windsurf, scuba diving , or prefer to barter for a bargain at the pazar then relax on the beach, Torba offers an excellent combination of village life with the allure of a nearby busy resort town.
