The Turquoise Coast/Lycia region
The Aegean town and yachting port of Bodrum is one of Turkey's longest established resorts. It boasts world-class facilities including its own airport, and a wealth of history, most notably the Mausoleum of Halicarnassos, one of the seven wonders of the ancient world. The main resort itself has long been a favourite holiday destination of the Turkish elite and as such, there is a vibrant nightlife scene. Halikarnas is the largest open air nightclub in Europe
The close-by resort of Gümbet is also famed for its discos and bars. In contrast, the Bodrum peninsula offers a calmer alternative: a shore line characterised by charming fishing villages with whitewashed houses, crystal clear water and a welcoming breeze.
**Climate and Weather in the Bodrum peninsula**
The holiday season lasts from early spring until late autumn when the temperature range is from 20 to mid 30 degrees, summer being the most popular time. The mild winter make it an ideal place for hikers and those wishing to visit the ancient sites away from the heat of the summer.
**Tuzla Lake / Flamingo Country Club**
Flamingo Country Club is a stunning new development situated on Tuzla Lake, just 15 minutes from Milas-Bodrum Airport with links to all major European Airports, 20 minutes from Bodrum Town and close to historical Bogazici village.
This is a privileged location in many ways. Set on green slopes that rise to a crest of land with Tuzla Lake on one side and the sea on the other, the site looks out over the lake and beyond, a picturesque mountain panorama rolls into the misty distance. Two championship standard golf courses, one of which can be seen from the apartment, are within easy reach.
Flamingo is the number 1 holiday destination on the Bodrum peninsula thanks to its 5* facilities, fabulous location, close proximity to golf, easy transportation links (Milas-Bodrum Airport is just 15 mins by car) and the abundance of wildlife on its doorstep. No other resort on the Bodrum peninsula offers anything similar. The location of Flamingo Country Club is no accident. Located on the waters edge of Lake Tuzla, the largest salt-water lake in the Bodrum Peninsula and close to Bogazici village, Flamingo Country Club looks across the lake to the rolling greens of the Vita Park Golf Resort.
In October, the lake is awash with colour as flamingoes and pelicans as well as many other rare birds flock here to rest and enjoy the late summer weather. On the north side of the peninsula, you can enjoy fabulous vistas of sea and land and to the west, stunning sunsets.
** Play Golf **
Golf is a big feature of your stay at Flamingo Country Club. Just 5 minutes drive away is the impressive new Vita Park Golf Resort, comprising of two world class golf courses, the Milas, a par 71 golf course with a Scottish Links feel and the Arizona styled Halikarnas, a par 71 course which takes in the contours of the hills around the lakeside. Both courses are designed to test golfers making every game a challenge. Vita Park also has its own driving range, pro-shop, clubhouse and restaurant. The Milas-71 is a pay & play course open to non-members so make sure that you bring your golf clubs on your next visit!
** Bodrum town **
Easily accessible from the resort is Bodrum, one of Turkey's most popular and cosmopolitan resorts. Renowned for its vibrant night-life, Bodrum is home to Europe’s largest outdoor nightclub ‘Halikarnas’. Bodrum also boasts excellent restaurants serving fresh seafood and other Aegean specialities, a great museum and various local markets selling food and clothing, which run throughout the week.
The heart of the town is around the harbour and marina, where shops, bars and restaurants jostle together in the narrow streets under the shadow of the St. Peter Castle. Leather goods of all kinds, natural sponges and the local blue glass beads (the Boncuk) are among the bargains to be found in the friendly little shops along the narrow, white-walled streets. Charming boutiques offer kilims, carpets, sandals and embroidery as well as original fashions.
Bodrum, known in ancient times as Halicarnassus, was the birthplace of Heredotus and the site of King Mausolus' Tomb, the Mausoleum (4th century B.C.), one of the Seven Wonders of the Ancient World. In the harbour, Bodrum Castle, or the medieval castle of St. Peter, is a fine example of 15th-century crusader architecture, and has been converted into the Museum of Underwater Archaeology, with remains dating as far back as the Bronze Age.
There are daily ferries to the Greek island of Kos in summer, and a weekly hydrofoil to Rhodes between May and September. Bodrum also is South Aegean's prettiest resort for scuba diving, with a yacht harbour and a port for ferries. Bodrum has several dive centres that rent out equipment, arrange excursions and even provide diving lessons for the inexperienced individual, eager to try out this underwater sport.
