Konacik Area Guide


Out of all the towns and villages on the Bodrum peninsula of Turkey, Konacik is expressly unique for two reasons. First, it sits away from the coastline, but anyone who has bought property in Konacik is still likely to receive a fantastic sea view because of the elevated status of the landscape.

Secondly, when you buy Konacik property, you are tapping into a life of convenience by having easy access to many famous and off the beaten track locations of the Bodrum peninsula. Its prime location can be utilised by either using local transport or hiring a car.

Konacik appears to have blended with Bodrum town centre but sitting on the outskirts, it is just 3 kilometres away from Bitez, 5 kilometres away from Ortakent and 9 kilometres from Torba.

All are accessible coastal resorts offering the time-honoured Turkish vibes of seaside life, so Konacik residents do have the best of the Bodrum peninsula on their doorstep.

Cutting across the peninsula, within 20 minutes, you will arrive at the upmarket resort of Yalikavak, home to the mega yachts of the world. The Palmarina is where esteemed boutique shops sell their luxury goods while internationally famous chefs serve up their unique twist in esteemed restaurants.

Otherwise, the old part of Yalikavak offers the same but just on a lower scale, therefore, accommodating the budget holidaymakers and buyers. Anyone hampering after beachside ambience will also find what they want in Yalikavak, with its long stretch of sand and nearby bars and restaurants.

Alternatively, get beach time relaxation or an adrenaline fix from water sports on Gumbet beach that is just 3 kilometres away. Gumbet is also renowned for its nightlife, family-friendly atmosphere and is a ten-minute drive away for anyone using taxis.

Konacik Real Estate Market

Apartments and villas for sale in Konacik are still reasonably priced given its prime location. The recent interest in new housing has also seen many projects incorporating modern architectural trends or renovation homes that include the age-old stone architecture of the Bodrum peninsula.

Apartments on large complexes are popular because residents are compensated for the lack of coastal beaches with large, community swimming pools.

Famous architects and local developers are also building millionaire villas making the most of the landscape with spacious open-air rooms, stunning sea views and modern trends for a convenient lifestyle.

While Konacik real estate is not the cheapest on the peninsula, its ideal position on the Bodrum peninsula is proving to be especially popular with retiring Turks from the major cities.

Getting to Konacik is easy because the central bus station, ten minutes’ drive away connects the area with the rest of Turkey and Bodrum airport with its full summer flight schedule is 40 minutes’ drive away.
