Tuzla holiday accommodation is located next to a lake and nature reserve not far north of the city of Bodrum, in Turkey’s Aegean Region. The area has only recently been developed for tourism, and has been managed with as little impact on the landscape as possible, with protected nature reserves and unspoiled beaches found locally.
Tuzla self-catering holiday apartments are set next to the lake of the same name, which is an important spot for birdlife, especially in winter when flamingos come to roost here. Moments away is the Aegean Sea coast, which is craggy and features numerous coves and small beaches tucked away and waiting to be discovered. The sea here is sheltered by the islands off the coast, making it exceptionally calm and clear, and ideal for swimming. An easy drive to the southwest of Tuzla self-catering villas is the city of Bodrum, which is known for its historical importance. Among the numerous eye-catching landmarks here is Bodrum Castle, which dates to the early-15th Century and has survived mostly intact to this day. It now houses a museum devoted to the archaeological findings in the local waters. There are also ancient structures to visit in Bodrum, including the Bodrum Roman Amphitheatre and the Mausoleum of Halicarnassus, which is from the 4th Century BC, and has lain in a state of ruin for centuries but is well worth seeing,
During your holiday at a self-catering villa in Tuzla you’ll be able to head down to Bodrum and catch a ferry to a number of the islands that sit just off the coast here. You’ll be able to reach Kos, Simi, Rhodes or Kalymnos. You could head for Rhodes City to see the former site of the Colossus, which was one of the Seven Wonders of the Ancient World. The old town here is beautiful, listed as a UNESCO World Heritage Site.
During your holiday at a Tuzla apartment you’ll be able to expect typical Mediterranean weather. This entails long, warm summers with little rainfall and daily temperatures that hit the low-30s in July and August. The rest of the year brings both mild and moderately warm weather, with maximum temperatures reaching the teens in December and January.
Tuzla holiday accommodation is a short drive from Milas-Bodrum Airport (BJV), which can be reached by flying with Monarch, Thomas Cook, Thomson or British Airways from a range of UK airports, including London Gatwick (LGW), Manchester (MAN), Newcastle (NCL), Luton (LUT), East Midlands (EMI), Glasgow (GLA) and London Stansted (STD).
