BUTTERFLY VILLA - YOUR PLACE IN THE TURKISH SUN

About the owner:
Formerly garage owners, we retired in England 5 years ago and came to live in Yalikavak. We actually live in the villa, but in the summer months we like to spend as much time as possible on our sailing yacht. This gives us the opportunity to share our home and the whole Turkish experience with you.

Year purchased: 2008

Why the owner chose a home in this location:
Welcome to my world, a world of splendour and intrigue, steeped in history. Welcome to Turkey with its spectacular view and stunning scenery, from the sandy beaches on the south coast past the sunken city of Mydos on the west, and to the rugged cliffs of Yalikavak on the north west, and the pine-clad bays on the north, surrounded by the crystal clear waters of the Aegean Sea. This is truly a special place, the Bodrum Peninsula, the place we call home. We invite you to come and stay in our beautiful villa built into a hillside overlooking the quiet old village of Gokcebel with its far-reaching seaviews across the bay of Gulluk to Didim and on a clear day to the Greek island of Samos some 40 miles away.

Unique benefits of the property:
The property is ideally situated, being 2 minutes by car from several supermarkets, banks, hairdressers, petrol stations and small restaurants. 5 minutes away is the village of Yalikavak, the main road is well serviced by buses and taxis if you don't want to take the car.
We share our home with our 2 adorable cats, Sophie & Willow, who have been with us from their birth 5 years ago. They are quite happy to spend all their time outside and will be fed and watered by our friends who will be looking after the garden and pool during your stay.

Children are more than welcome, but please note that they must be supervised at all times because the pool is open. We take no responsibility for accident or injury during your stay.

Accessibility
The villa is on two levels, with one flight of stairs. Although it is suitable for the active elderly, there is a flight of 18 steps from the car park up to the house. The garden is on a level with the pool and house.

Outside
Our garden is well established with grass, various fruit trees, roses and bougainvillea. The pool is a good size and has a shallow end of 1 metre. There is an outside shower and built-in barbecue. There is plenty of outdoor furniture and sunloungers and a gazebo to provide shade.

Coast/Beach
5 minutes by car to Yalikavak beach, from where boat trips can be taken. 30 minutes by car to sandy beaches with all watersports and boat trips catered for.

Golf
There is a choice of 2 golf courses, an18-hole course near the airport 40 minutes away, and a 9-hole course on the way to Bodrum, 20 minutes away.

Special interest holidays
Water ski-ing and water sports all available locally

Travel
Bodrum Airport is a 40 minute drive away. Airport transfers and car hire is available from a local company at competitive rates. Car hire is strongly recommended, in order to fully explore all the available sights.

Distances:
A 10 minute drive takes you to the seaside of Gundogan which has a large beach and is a must see in the evening, with its sparkling lights shining over the water.

The Bodrum - Turquoise Coast & Lycia region

Yalikavak is a small village community some 17 kilometres from the resort of Bodrum, it is well removed from the busier holiday resorts, but portrays a welcoming and friendly atmosphere for those discerning travellers looking for the real Turkey. Its boundaries stretch in the north from the old boatyard and marina right around the bay to the brand new modern marina to the south. Between the two marinas are a wide variety of restaurants and cafes, many small sandy beaches, the main village, and a little harbour. The main street in Yalikavak is well served with a variety of fresh food shops and places bursting with tasteful (ok - and some not quite so tasteful!) trinkets and souvenirs. Behind the main village is the bus/dolmus station, the Municipal offices and the specially prepared area on which the Yalikavak market is held every Thursday. If you are energetic and are keen on walking, a couple of kilometres out of the village towards Bodrum will offer you magnificent views of the bay and the village. One of the 'must see' features of this area is an art gallery and cafe some 30 minutes walk up into the hills, run by a Turkish couple, both of whom are very talented artists. They welcome visitors and go out of their way to ensure your stay is both memorable and enlightening, not to mention enjoying a glorious view whilst sipping a cold beer.
Yalikavak Shopping: The local shops have everything you need if you don't want to leave the village during your stay, some bartering can be done in the local shops, but for the adventurous bargain hunter Thursday will be your day, when you can expect to barter with real professionals at the market.
