The Turquoise Coast/Lycia region
The Bodrum Peninsula (part of the Turquoise Coast/ Lyica region) is a beautiful part of Turkey and is the perfect destination for visiting lots of different beaches as well as sightseeing and exploring the local area or getting involved into energetic activities. The sea waters are crystal clear, sparkling and look an amazing turquoise blue (hence the name of this area). There are many little beaches and coves to explore so you can find your own, quiet beach on the Peninsula set against the beautiful, mountainous backdrop. Dramatic red sunsets are stunning to watch whilst sipping a cool, refreshing drink in the evening (please view our photo gallery for an example of one of the amazing sunsets!)
The climate is generally hot and dry between May-October with long sunny days and hardly a drop of rain! The months of April, May, September and October are usually very pleasant (low-mid 20 degrees) - perfect for families with younger children or for people wanting to take part in activities such as walking/ exploring historical sites. During the summer months of June, July and August it can reach the mid 30+ degrees. The winter months tend to be mild with some sun, occasional showers, however it is not unusual to be able to sunbathe on Christmas day!
This is a beautiful part of Turkey and you get the best of everything with at stay at Little Valley. This 3 bedroom house is set in a pretty, peaceful spot so is the perfect place to relax by the pool or on the beach as well as going exploring & sightseeing.
There is a local dolmus bus stop, ATM cash machines, & several local restaurants and small shops just a few minutes walk the property. The nearby, well stocked Migros supermarket has everything you'll need for self catering during your stay. You can walk down to the local beach in just 10 minutes down the track at the side of the complex. Another beach called Bolme beach, which has a small play park and Espavo restaurant, is about 15 minutes walk from the house (just down below the Migros supermarket, near Gumsan complex). Victoria's Beach Club which has a beachfront location, bar, restaurant, swimming and splash pool and also horse riding is about 20/25 minutes walk or a few minutes away on the dolmus bus.
The unspoilt and picturesque bay of Gumusluk is only a 5 minutes drive away. You can get the bus from near our villa to Gumusluk very easily from early in the morning until late a night. Here you can relax on the beach during the day and wade across the shallow casuseway to Rabbit Island for stunning views over the bay. This is a protected area and is great for snokelling and spotting the sunken underwater remains of Myndos. You can dine out at the fabulous water-side restaurants and enjoy tasty fresh fish dishes or chill-out in one of the local, laid-back cafe bars.
The resort of Yalikavak (10 minutes drive away) offers many facilities and amenities with over 60 restaurants, bars, shops and supermarkets. It still retains its lovely Turkish charm and culture with it pretty bazaar area, traditional Turkish coffee shops, little fishing boats and a colourful weekly Thursday market. Yalikavak is a proud and well maintained town combining the historical remains of ancient windmills with the modern exclusive marina. Plus all buildings are low rise so there are no horrendous high rised hotels here and the centre is traffic free!!
Turgutreis (approx 15 mins drive away) is the 2nd largest town on the Peninsula and has a nice sandy beach, large bazaar, lots of bars and restaurants and also hosts a huge market each Saturday. Alternatively chill-out on the beach in the laid back bays of Bitez, Ortakent or Golturkbuku – known as the St Tropez of the Bodrum Peninsula.
For a family fun day out, visit the Dedeman waterpark in Bodrum. There's also a bowling alley, amusement arcade and cinema showing some English films at the Oasis Shopping Centre in Bodrum.
If you want to go shopping during your stay, then visit the local bazaars and market days in each town and barter hard for a bargain. Bodrum now has 2 large shopping centres - the Oasis Centre and the new Midtown shopping mall. Both these shopping centres have plenty of clothes shops and food courts. The Kipa hypermarket which is located on the way into Bodrum (owned by Tesco) also stocks lots of clothes and shoes, including the F&F range.
Bodrum centre is only 30 minutes drive from the villa. You can get the Dolmus bus to Gumusluk and change onto the Bodrum bus very easily (just takes a bit longer). It is great for souvenir shopping as it has a very large bazaar area making it a good place to visit on hot days as there is plenty of shade and air-conditioned shops!! There is also a large harbour, marina and lots of choices of restaurants and bars.
History lovers should take a visit to St Peter's Castle in Bodrum to view the underwater archaeology museum or arrange a trip to Ephesus, which is the largest & best preserved ancient city in Turkey. Alternatively an excursion can be booked to Pammukale where you can combine the hot thermal springs of this white, calcium terraced mountain with the adjacent ancient site of Hierpolis. Another great day out is a visit the mud baths & stunning beaches at Dalyan combined with seeing the Lycian rock tombs & the remains of Caunos, dating back to 400 century B.C.
The fast ferry from Bodrum to Kos, Greece means that you can experience 2 countries during one day of your holiday. Alternatively there are lots of local boat trips which can be booked from Yalikavak or Turgutreis which are a perfect way to cool down with the lovely sea breezes. These take you to different beaches and coves, offer amazing coastal views and usually include a fantastic lunch.
