The Turkish Aegean Coast region
Güllük, is a small harbor town with own municipality within the district of Milas, situated north of Bodrum in Mu?la Province of Turkey. It is a small Turkish town and growing holiday destination, with the town being pleasantly developed with a range of tourist amenities. The Town centre is typically Turkish, with a wide range of restaurants being dotted along the waterfront. A yachting marina is being developed, as are a number of beaches. For some time Gulluk has been a popular stopover for tourists sailing the Blue Cruise tour and also has an important port for lighter freight ships. Güllük is also an important center of construction for gulet boats, coming second only to Bodrum. Güllük is only 9 km. far away from Milas-Bodrum Airport, which makes the town easily accessible. Bodrum is approximately 42 km. from Güllük. There are buses connect Güllük to Milas and Bodrum.
Gulluk Fishing Village:
Located in Mandalya Bay on the Aegean Sea, the Turquoise Coast, Gulluk is a peaceful, quiet fishing village with a number of restaurants and cafes serving locally caught fish, primarily sea bass and bream.
Fuegos is a highly recommended restaurant, with an ideal location right by the sea at Gulluk, a perfect place to soak up the afternoon rays and enjoy a cold sundowner and evening meal.
Gulluk has several supermarkets and local shops selling fresh local produce for those wishing to indulge and enjoy home cooked meals in the privacy of their own penthouse.
The free Horizon Sky private water taxi is based in the harbour and provides regular trips across the bay to the resort for all visitors.
The Castle of St Peter
After the castle in Izmir was destroyed in 1402, the Ottoman Empire granted the Knights of Hospitaller an opportunity to build another elsewhere. Construction started shortly after under the guidance of German knight-architect Heinrecht Schlegelholt. The construction workers used squared green volcanic stone as well as marble columns and fallen remains from the Mausoleum of Maussolos to fortify the castle.
Taking almost a century to complete, the castle remains one of the most intact relics of the era despite been used for various purposes throughout history, including military bases by both Turkish troops (1824) and an Italian garrison (1921), as well as a prison and a mosque in the 19th century.
Most recently, it has been reconstructed to its original shape in 1997 and is still the centre piece and most recognised historical feature as one looks out towards the Mediterranean from Bodrum. Today, it is also home to the Museum of Underwater Archaeology.
The Underwater Archaeology Museum
In 1964 the Underwater Archaeology Museum was established in the Bodrum Castle. There were a number of successful archaeological digs, both on land and sea by Turkish and foreign scholars, and it is their findings which have propelled the Castle into one of the most important Underwater Archaeology museums in the world. There are 14 exhibitions halls with specimens dating back to the 14 century BC in the Glass Exhibition room to specimens found in the excavations of Uluburun shipwreck between 1984-1995. The old Spanish Chapel now houses the famous Yassiada Wreck which was excavated between 1967-1969.
Both the Castle of St Peter and the Underwater Archaeology are a “must” visit whilst in the Bodrum area- it fascinates and offers an insight and understanding of historical turmoil, rise and fall throughout the ages easily seen by the number of historical artefacts on display.
The Myndos Gate
This entrance gate to Halikarnassus is thought to have been constructed in 360 BC. When Alexander the Great came to claim the city, he was unable to pass the deep, broad trench in front of the gate. When the gate was restored a couple of years ago, archaeologists found the remainders of the trench. Next to the gate there is a Turkish cemetery and some vaulted tombs from Hellenistic and Roman periods.
Golf near Bodrum
Vita Park Golf Resort which is about 20 minutes drive from Gulluk, in the village of Bogazici. The golf resort offers second to none facilities and is located close to Tuzla wetland area, a renowned bird sanctuary and paradise where some 260 species of migrant birds have made their home.
The ancient city of Bodrum is said to be founded by Dorian settlers in Greece from around 1000BC. Since then the area has had a tempestuous period of change and different rulers. The city was captured by the Lydians in the first half of the 6th century BC and in 546 BC the Persians took control for 140 years. Satrapy of Saird then ruled before the Persians retook control of the Carian region. In 377 BC Mausolos, the most famous of the Carian satrapie, seized control of the region. He was influential in the construction and development of many cities and moved his capital from Milas to Halikarnassos. Mausolos enlarged his new capital by bringing in people from other cities in the region and constructing new walls, palaces, theatres and temples.
Halikarnassos was then conquered by Alexander the Great in 334BC and in 192BC it became a Roman colony. Halicarnassos then fell to the Seljuk Turks in 1071 AD, and with the permission of Sultan Celebi Mehmet the Knights of Rhodes were able to construct Bodrum Castle – the Castle of St. Peter. The castle, with its English, French and German towers is today the symbol of the town.
The city came under Ottoman rule in 1522 AD Suleyman the Magnificent captured Rhodes and forced the knights to move to Malta. in 1522 AD, Ottoman rule took over. This was known as 'Petrion' after the Castle of St. Peter, and this became in Turkish 'Bodrum', the name by which the town is known today.
With its colourful history and monuments attesting to such, Bodrum exerts a lasting fascination on its multitude of visitors year on year, irrespective of age or nationality. There is so much that this region offers and is more than suitable for an interesting getaway, whether you are after culturally rich tours, busy nights out in Bodrum, a romantic evening in a cosy tavern over looking the bays from the small villages, or just a relaxing break away by the pool whilst soaking up the sunny weather. Bodrum and the surrounding areas offer it all.

"A relaxing week of sunshine"
We stayed at the apartment with family for a week in June. It's been furnished and finished absolutely beautifully - very clean and modern with a touch of luxury (especially the hot tub on the balcony!). Comfortable, excellent air conditioning and equipped with everything you could need.
The complex itself is also of a high standard; although not completely finished, we found at least 2 pools (one of which was empty apart from us so lovely and quiet) and the bar/snack bar/restaurant is great - we ate there several times for lunch and dinner and the food was really nice, plus the staff are friendly and helpful. As per the review below, the beach bar and beach itself had also just been finished and opened as we were leaving so even more to enjoy.
Essentials (water, milk, bread) are available from the bar area on the complex and there's another small supermarket just outside, however I'd definitely recommend going to the market in Gulluk if you can - the fruit and veg is beautiful and so cheap, and there are a few other supermarkets in the village for other supplies. The free boat across to Gulluk was brilliant - quite regular, very easy to get to (the resort staff will drive you down to the jetty) and it's a really enjoyable trip - much preferred to a normal taxi! Quite a lot of restaurants in Gulluk itself too - we particularly loved Berkhan (right in front of you as you get off the boat - owners lovely, food gorgeous) and the Broken Barrel is great for a drink (really nice cocktails!).
Overall a great holiday in lovely surroundings :)

We have just returned from a weeks holiday at this fabulous appartment.It is as stunning as the photos show.It is luxurious and has everything that you need.As we had an afternoon flight we chose to travel from the airport totally by road,especially as I am not a brilliant sailor.This took about an hour as it was on country roads.We returned by the boat and road route which was much better.When we arrived at the complex we were taken straight to the appartment.The next day I braved the boat to Gulluck!! It was fabulous.Gulluck is a lovely Turkish village with quite a few bars and restaurants.There are supermarkets and on certain days a market.You can get basic foods from the complex,and there is a small supermarket just outside.There are several pools at the complex.The main one has a bar and you can get food which is very good.We used the pool which is on the same level as the appartment most days as it was higher and had a breeze.The complex is quite steep but it has vans and buggies which drive you around.There is building work going on but it didnt disturb us at all.Whilst we were there they opened the beach and beach bar.The people are all very friendly and cant do enough for you.
I cannot recommend this place highly enough especially if you want a chilled holiday which is a bit different.I have already told loads of friends about it.We will certainly be returning.
We are glad you had a good time in Turkey, thank you for writing a review and your wonderful comments.

"Best Holiday Ever. Views Spectacular."
We stayed at the penthouse for a week, it was pure relaxation with friends, it was so peaceful and tranquil. The Penthouse was so spacious with all the amenities you would ever need, all being of the highest quality. The views were breath taking, you almost felt as if you didn't need to leave the penthouse at all.
There was a friendly and welcoming feeling from staff and other guests and the courtesy boat was a lovely way to visit the local fishing village of Gulluck.
We will most defiantly be booking again next year, I think we will do 2 weeks next time!
