Old, beautiful, carefully renovated, village cottage, located in a private, boutique vineyard. Constructed of stone, 50 cm (20 inch) thick walls and originally built early-20th century. Located in BODRUM hills above the town of Yalikavak. Twenty minutes to Bodrum city.
This cottage is an unusual situation as it is currently landlocked and a road to the property is not expected until 2016 season. Guests drive to their covered parking space above and then walk down the path to the cottage. We have our man, who will always help with baggage and groceries. The 35 sq.meter cottage and 20 sq. mt deck is on a 3000 sq.meter plot of vineyard (Cabernet-Sauvignon/Shiraz/Barbera/ etc. (Note Harvest is generally the last week of Aug) and surrounded by nature, birds, eagles, cows, fields and some newly built stone houses.
Beautiful view of the Aegean Sea and the antique hills nearby,where a Castle stood 3000 years ago. Nice walks to this castle and other beautiful spots nearby.
