Watching the stars and twinkling lights of Yalikavak from here is a delight itself. 
 
Gardens – are truly amazing. We have to say these gardens are some of the best kept we have seen. In summer, they are a riot of colour with the lawns and shrubs clipped and proudly shaped.

On the Bodrum Peninsula buildings are not permitted to be built more than 2 stories high, and there are no buildings higher than 3 stories in the whole Peninsula. This tends to make the area look particularly attractive. Most of the buildings are white washed cubes, similar to those in the Greek Islands. This is because this part of Turkey used to belong to Greece and some of the Greek Islands used to belong to Turkey. As you can imagine, there is a lot of history around the area. 
 
History 
Archaeological excavations have established that human habitation in the Yalikavak area began in around 2000BC, and there are ruins and artefacts from the Carian, Hellenistic, Roman, Byzantine and Ottoman eras. The historic sites such as Sandima, Pasanda (Geris), Kandiba and Termil (Dirmil/Gökçebel) attract visitors from all over the world. Yalikavak is famous for the numerous windmills found in the vicinity. The winds, that until recently turned the vanes of these working windmills, now fill the sails of boats and windsurfs. Another “typical” feature found in abundance here are domed water cisterns which, in the past, were used in times of drought and are now being adapted for artistic and cultural uses. 
 
A 20 minute road journey will take you to Bodrum Centre with its historic castle which was built from 1402 onwards, by the Knights of St John as the Castle of St. Peter or Petronium. The Mausoleum at Halicarnassus is also located in Bodrum town. 
 
Ferry trips to the Greek island of Kos can be made from Turgutreis and Bodrum 
Further afield you can visit Ephesus, the largest archaeological site in the world, the stunning pools at Pamukkale, the royal rock tombs at Dalyan, and the temple of Apollo at Didim. 
 
Yalikavak 
Yalikavak's town centre has retained its traditional Turkish charm. With its simple but stylish laid back atmosphere and friendly welcoming locals, this is its main attraction and the reason why holidaymakers return to the area year after year. Along the coast road en-route from the villa to Yalikavak you will pass some of the best fish restaurants on the Bodrum Peninsula huddled together in their own 'fish restaurant village' area. A couple of minutes further on takes you to Yalikavak's fashionable new Marina (Palmarina) with super yachts, gullets and sail boats visiting from all around the world. The Marina is home to smart shops, bars, restaurants and a beach club which hosts open air concerts during high summer.  
 
The centre of Bodrum is approx 15 minutes from here with its own smart Marina, town centre shops and, of course, the famous Bodrum Castle. Bodrum town has fabulous shops in the Marina area and also along the narrow streets of the old town near the Castle. At night, the Marina has open air live music starting at 10pm until the early hours nightly during high summer. 
 
Yalikavak has supermarkets, banks, ATMs, Taxi ranks, bus station, petrol stations etc. 
 
A car is not essential for this location. The dolmus (public transport minibus) runs along the road at the top of the entrance steps  
 
Distances: Yalikavak is less than a 5 minute drive, Gumusluk fishing village and harbour restaurants are 15/20 mins drive. Turgutreis is 25 mins drive  
Nearest supermarket, Migros, 1 km - 15 minute walk, 3/4 min drive

Guest Feedback for holidays at The Retreat Villa 

A Fantastic Holiday | August 2014 
I just wanted to let you know that we had a fantastic holiday at The Retreat - the accommodation was great and the owners of the other villas were very hospitable and friendly, whilst the caretakers provided excellent service. I really couldn't fault the villa and the gardens were outstanding. The location was really good and meant that we could easily visit the whole peninsula. Thank you for your help with the booking.

Everything you said it would be| July 2014 
The villa was everything you said it would be Annie, spacious clean ,well proportioned, with great views of the harbour. The gardens were superb and the pool we had to ourselves for most of the week. Sonad, Arzu & Ahmet and his wife were friendly and always available to offer advice and we have sent a thankyou card and a present for Ahmet’s new baby just this week.
