Turkey Homes are very pleased to offer this wonderful traditional villa in Bodrum for sale, located rather peacefully in the unspoilt fishing village of Gumusluk on the Bodrum peninsula in the Aegean region of south-west Turkey.
Gumusluk sits on the western side of the peninsula just 8km from the famous Yalikavak marina on the northwestern tip. The pretty village has much of its tradition still in place, due to much of the area being protected green-belt land. Quaint and unspoilt by mass tourism unlike many of the other resorts around the peninsula.
Built around a natural harbour that is divided from the beach by an underwater pathway that leads to the nearby Rabbit Island. The shoreline has an array of pansions and waterfront restaurants and tea gardens where the local fishermen head at the end of their working days to enjoy a game of Tavla (Backgammon) or cards with a few glasses of Cay (Turkish Tea).
By day the beach is filled with sun loungers and sunbathing tourists, all replaced at night by dining tables set with candles by the local restaurants offering lovely romantic waterfront meals whilst watching the stunning sunsets.

Sitting on the site of the ancient city of Myndos, with some of the foundations still visible today below the crystal clear shallow waters that fill the bay.
