Gumusluk and the Bodrum Peninsular
Gumusluk is a favourite peninsula village, 30 minutes drive from Bodrum. Its situation, on the site of the ancient city of Myndos has ensured that no large scale development has been allowed. Like many of the coastal villages it is divided in two, with one part inland and one part at the sea side. Divers will tell you that Gumusluk is the best place for snorkelling, in the calm waters of the sheltered bay all sorts of sunken ruins can be found and there is a causeway, sometimes above water, sometimes below, to Rabbit Island where almost tame rabbits run around. To one side of the headland is a sandy beach with beach side restaurants and sunbeds and a short walk through the little lanes with craft stalls and grocery shops will bring you to the other side where the famous fish restaurants, with their tempting displays of locally caught fish, are perched right on the shoreline. A small Byzantine church above the beach is now a cultural centre with a regular programme of concerts and exhibitions.
Gumusluk is famous for its fish restaurants. People from all over Bodrum Peninsula visit the place for having a great fish lunch or dinner. You choose it from the display do the bargaining and they bring it to you the way you love it, broiled, grilled or fried. Gumusluk has a small authentic place where art workshops are organized.
No other area on the Turkish Aegean coast provides the visitor with the opportunity to experience traditional Turkish life only a few minutes away from the hustle and bustle of a modern tourist center.
One of the unique features of Bodrum as a holiday resort is that in addition to the active recreational opportunities available by day and the unequaled Bodrum nightlife, so many more tranquil bays, beaches and villages are available to enjoy.
You will find the little town of Turgetreis at the western tip of the Peninsula. Named after the famous admiral, Turgut Reis, this is a 'stroll' town in its own right and combines a compact town center with several long sandy beaches. This part of the coast is favored by professional wind surfers as the winds are generally stronger here.

Alternatively, you can shop for bargains under the stars! Yalikivak, Turgetreis and Bodrum enjoy a setting amidst
breathtaking scenery.


Further Information:
Ephesus is the best-preserved classical city on the Mediterranean,and perhaps the best place in the world to get the feeling for what life was like in Roman times. As a strategic coastal gateway to the Eastern World, this Ionian refuge grew to be the second largest city in the Roman Empire. Legend has it that the Virgin Mary,accompanied by St. Paul, came to Ephesus at the end of her life,circa 37-45 AD. In 1967 Pope Paul VI visited the site, where a chapel now stands, and confirmed the authenticity of the legend. Also the Basilica of St. John is located near Ephesus. St. John is said to have lived the last years of his life here and after his death, a shrine was located over his grave .

Olu Deniz is one of Turkey's most scenic coastal resorts. It is probably Turkey's most photographed beach. The main beach is a wide stretch of white sand and shingle down to the crystal, turquoise waters. From the beach you can arrange your choice of activity which includes paragliding
and many watersports.

Villa Emma is indeed a very nice and spacious house with a gorgious view from its terraces on the Aegean sea. The house is reletively well equiped (2 drawbacks are lack of a microwave oven and blinds in one of the bedrooms) allowing an excellent stay-over for a large family. The proximity to the shared swimmingpool is an absolute plus. The swimmingpool is well kept and not crowded. The area of Gumusluk is not so touristic and not crowded (at least not in period we were there - second half of August) although there has been too much construction in the area in recent years. We hoped for better nearby beaches for young children and missed sand and shallow water. Otherwise the Bodrum peninsula is beautiful and we enjoyed very much a trip to Efeso. The house owners are very pleasant and helpful.

A great property for a family holiday, very spacious rooms, air conditioning, two bathrooms, chill out areas for reading and relaxing with breathtaking views of the area. The property is in a 'Garden of Eden' situated in a mature residential area close by to the pool and small pool bar. A walk down to the beach/bathing area will also bring you past two shops that are sufficient for everything you would need for this type of holiday, plus three restaurants (one on the beach) serving very good food. Also on the local beach is kayaking and wind surfing. Gumusluk - can be reached on foot in approx 25-30 mins by walking along the beach and taking the back road into the village - bars, beach side restaurants, shops, markets, small art gallery, classical music concerts in August, and short 'wade' across to rabbit Island or further round the bay - in summary Gumusluk is a beautiful place make sure you explore it properly - recommendations for restuarants.. The Beach Restaurant, The Bati, The 'pie' shop next to the 'supermarket' - The Mimiza whilst good is overpriced. Turgetries - can be reached in 20 mins on a Dolmus and has excellent beaches, bars, restaurants and an amazing market on a Saturday, also useful for those football fans as sone bars cater for live football matches. Bodrum - 45 mins in Dolmus - great place for shopping and markets - clothes market on Tuesday with fruit/veg/spices market on Thursday. Again some great eating places and more night life. We managed to go to the aqua park which is about half way to Bodrum, scuba diving in Gumbet and even ventured as far as Istanbul via Bodrum airport. In summary its a great villa with everything you coudl possibly need, great place to use as a base, beautiful area, you dont really need a hire car as local transport is very good and runs until the very early hours of the morning (05:00!)
