Rosea is an impressive private villa with pool in Turgutreis town that stands in a walled estate of 30,000 sq metres, situated on the road running to the beaches on the south of the peninsula.
It is just a short walk to the town centre (1.5 km), town beach and the marina. The villa is set in lawned flower filled gardens fringed by tall Cypress trees. In the midst lies the large pool (10 x 15 metres with a depth ranging from 1.45 to 1.80 metres), sun loungers and a day bed are inviting and the very comfortable and well furnished shaded terrace provides a refuge from the sun.
The villa benefits from very large living areas, the sitting room converted from a barn has dry stone walling and a beamed ceiling. A huge fireplace with a Balinese carved lintel provides a focal point for the room which is immensely spacious. Sumptuous settees create a warm and inviting feel and throughout the house country antiques and classic furnishings mix naturally with modern comfort.
This is a villa ideally suited to a group of friends or an extended family holidaying together as all of the bedrooms provide the same high standard and all offer en suite facilities. Larger groups will appreciate and enjoy the space provided by Rosea. There is the possibility of daily maid service, laundry and cooking services available at an extra cost payable locally. The house is within walking distance of a large supermarket. The centre of Turgutreis is just 1.5 km. from this delightful property, therefore car hire is not essential. It’s just a 10 minute walk to the Turgutreis Marina.
This villa is also available to smaller groups who enjoy having a spacious property with a large pool.
A little information about Turgutreis and nearby Gumusluk
Located 18 km to the west of Bodrum and with views to the Dodecanese islands, Turgutreis is a popular resort with a fabulous array of shops, bars and restaurants. The marina located close to the town centre provides an even more extensive range of shops, waterside cafes, restaurant, and open air cinema and tennis courts. There are plentiful activities in the area for guests staying at our favourite luxury villa in Turgutreis , Rosea. Nearby Akyarlar is ideal for water sports enthusiasts and there is a choice of sandy beaches in the area. We love Domalan just outside of town and Kadikalesi a little further along the coast towards Gümüşlük. Each Saturday the streets of Turgutreis are filled with a colourful and bustling market with all manner of fabric, clothing, jewellery and treasures enjoyed by locals and visitors alike.
Gümüşlük is a favourite Peninsula destination and just a 15 minute drive from Turgutreis. Situated on the west side of the Bodrum Peninsula the settlement was originally the Carian City of Myndos in the time of Halicarnassus – 4th C BC. Remains of the city are visible around Gümüşlük but most excitingly those city walls that fronted the coast ended up under water after an earthquake and can still be seen today.
There are two distinct sides to Gümüşlük beach – on the open side sun beds line the narrow beach and restaurants offer a delicious choice of Turkish foods, but a walk along the beach through the narrow lanes lined with craft stalls and a fabulous junk jewellery shop and then passing the famous waterfront fish restaurants will bring you to the lagoon side. Here as you walk along the path in front of the sea it runs out and you are literally paddling in the water.
The sunken city walls can be seen if you don a mask and snorkel but if that’s not your thing then take a walk across the causeway – be prepared to get your knees wet – and you will be on Rabbit Island; if you climb to the top there are excellent views down into the water where you can see some of the ruins. It’s perfect to arrive at the beach late afternoon, have a swim, a cool drink and wait until sun set, then, relaxing in the big cushioned areas that most sea side restaurants offer, glass of wine in hand simply enjoy what people here have been enjoying for over 2000 years.
