"We just loved this beautiful place. It was just perfect. Frank and his wife Berna have built a lovely haven high in the hills overlooking the greek islands. Your units are built around the main house so there is plenty of privacy but the hospitality of this wonderful couple is subtly present just when you need something. You have a little kitchen so can cook a simple meal and if you're lucky enough to be there if Berna decides to cook dinner, take up the offer and enjoy the other guests. Francis used to be a baker and we had the most delicious cake on the terrace one afternoon. This place feels like you're staying with lovely friends and the tips on what to do and see that take you on the road less travelled is full with lovely surprises like the couple down in the village who serve the most exquisite brunch in their home.
Francis had a passion for antiques in a former life so the place is decorated with gorgeous pieces mostly from Asia. The units are great with lots of room and there plenty of nooks and crannies to relax in around the gardens and pool.
We sat every evening on the terrace and had a sundowner and just chatted with our neighbours or had Francis stop by for a catch up on our day.
The big bonus of this place is that the temperatures are about 5% less than the villages and you are in fact far away from the hustle and bustle of the tourist areas although only a short drive to anywhere on the peninsular. We found the whole place so much more developed than 7 years ago so in our opinion a place like Frank and Berna's is where you want to be. It's quite and peaceful.
It is just a perfect place to enjoy and see the Bodrum Peninsula from."
