This resort town is about 25km away from Bodrum and its picturesque beauty and tranquillity make it highly popular with visitors to the south-western region of the Aegean coastline. Apart from spectacular views and quick access to luscious, sandy beaches, holidaymakers in Gundogan holiday rentals will enjoy such features as private pools, satellite TV and Internet access.
Things to do
-Monuments: Every history buff worth their salt will want to set foot in the Bodrum Castle, also known as the Castle of St. Peter. This stony edifice rises out of the Aegean coastline with an air of ancient majesty, its four towers standing like resolute sentinels. It was constructed hundreds of years ago under the auspices of the famous King Mausolus before the arrival of the Romans. The views from this castle are simply to die for while its interior serves as the home of the Museum of Underwater Archaeology.
-Mausoleum: This is the place where King Mausolus was laid to rest after he died. It was the brainchild of his sister and widow Artemisia II of Caria. Though most of the elaborate structure styled by Greek architects was laid waste by an earthquake, one can get an idea of how grand the monument come tomb was from the remains on the site. These ruins have been listed as one of the Seven Wonders of the Ancient World.
-Beaches: Gundogan holiday rental residents will have the beaches of Bodrum at their disposal. Though not sandy, they provide a perfect location on which holidaymakers can pull up a lounger and enjoy the wonderful weather. Restaurants by the beach usually allow tourists to use their sunbeds for free even if they don’t eat there. The waters off Bodrum’s beach are excellent for windsurfing and there are numerous places where they can hire a board.
-Food and drink: While in their holiday villas in Gundogan visitors will rarely find the need to cook as there are many great eateries in Bodrum where they can gorge themselves on Turkish specialities and fresh seafood. For scrumptious meatballs at unbelievable prices hungry holidaymakers who find themselves on Bodrum’s marina can pass by the Marina Koftecisi. When a craving for Italian strikes they can head to the Ortakent Yahsi Beach where Vira’s Restaurant is located. Arguably the best fish in town is served in Terzi Mustafa.
