When the villa was booked by family friends we really did not know what to expect, although the pictures looked great there is always the possibility it would not live up to expectations, the truth be told the villa and surounding area surpassed our expectations.
The villa its self had everything you could possibly need and more, it truly is a home from home .
The location of the villa is ideal if you want to stroll down to the local resturants the nearest no more than 5 minutes away, and beach is no more than 10 minutes walk from the villa. If you wish to head in to the nearest big town which is Bodrum then you can get on one of the local buses at the top or bottom road just outside the gated entrance it takes about 10 - 15 mins on the bus and it drops you right in the middle of the town, the buses run about every 15 mins and only cost just over £1.We had several bbq's during our stay (the bbq is in part of your own garden)i would suggest buying grocerys in Bodrum if you are eating in as the local shops are a little bit mor expensive
We as a group (there were 8 of us) enjoyed the whole exerperiance so much that we booked to return the following year as soon as we returned, but due to unexpected circumstances we had to cancel.
We did however return this year July 2011 with a differant set of friends and found that we enjoyed it this time more than the first, due to knowing the area and how to get about , we are hoping to go back next year 2012 as it really is a fantastic relaxing holiday.
The pool area is kept spotless by the full time on site handy man Memmet, the garden and bbq area have had work done to them as well as security doors fitted on the ground floor of the property.
John and Claire also arranged the transfers from and back to the airport which is only about a 30 minute drive on the mini bus, there is also a safe in the villa which is great for leaving passports,money ect
In summary we could not have wished for a better villa or area to stay in our first visit to Turkey …
Villa Hazal in Torba Bodrum
once in a life time experience
I stayed at the villa with a group of friends in July this year, and had a fantastic time. The villa is located in a very tranquil area in Torba, and not too far from the nighlife in Bodreum. The villa was very spacious and clean. It had all the facilities i needed, from the jacuzzi to all the utensils i needed in the kitchen area.It also had a shaded dining area outside over looking the pool. The bedding was spotless, and the rooms were a good size. The swimming pool was lovely and clean and well maintained. Torba beach and the local shops are a minutes walk away.If the opportunity arises again, I would definately go back to the same villa again!!!!! …
