Property description

Situated in the peaceful countryside just outside Bodrum, Villa Tortuga makes an ideal choice for families and sports enthusiasts. (private villa, privately gated, NOT in a complex, all facilites for exclusive use) The location is perfect for those wishing a central position to the many charms of the Bodrum Peninsula, with the setting framed by farmland and a quiet, natural view out on a small olive grove and hills beyond. You will be spoiled for choice when it comes to activities, starting with the private pool which has in-pool seating and poolside pergola to escape the mid day sun. A few steps from the pool is a Beach Volleyball court (aka Kids' Beach) and a large grass lawn that lends itself to a family game of football.

Villa Tortuga is a perfect rental for the whole family.

Great area for long walks, quiet area with very few neighbours or noise...

Located in the village of Ortakent, Villa Tortuga is centrally located on the Bodrum peninsula in the southwest corner of Turkey, making it a perfect base from which to explore the region. The peninsula is made up of many small villages, beaches, yacht harbours and historical sites which means there is no end of places to explore within a short drive. Ancient Halicarnassus, renamed Bodrum, is a vibrant, cosmopolitan town and has a wide selection of things to see and do. There are many sites of archaeological interest right in town from the Roman amphitheatre to the ancient wonder of the Mausoleum of Mausellos. The seafront area is split into two bays by the Castle of St Peter. An hour ferry ride and you can be in the Greek islands, exploring Kos and beyond. There are many day trips from Bodrum, the most famous being in Ephesus.

Within walking distance from Villa Tortuga is the Bodrum Golf and Tennis Club - an 'Academy Course' - a driving range, 9 holes at par 3, 5 new clay tennis courts in 2012, and nice clubhouse with spa, bar & restaurant good for dinner or a sunset drink.

The local beach of Ortakent is a short drive away, approx 7 minutes.

Ortakent is also home to the biggest shopping and grocery stores on the Peninsula, with Tesco Kipa and Metro Makro being a few minute drive away.
