Turkey is becoming increasingly popular as a destination for all nationalities. And it is not hard to see why.
Many visitors to Turkey stay in rented accommodation and a great and economic way to experience the area is to rent an apartment in Turkey.
Turkey is where East meets West – indeed a small part of Turkey is technically in Europe but the larger part of the country is in Asia.
It is a land of ancient history, fantastic cuisine, beautiful scenery, and of course (at least in Summer) wonderful weather.
And one of the most beautiful areas of Turkey is the Bodrum Peninsula on the Aegean coast. Bodrum (formerly known as Halicarnassus), is today an international center of tourism and yachting. It is also the site of one of the Seven Wonders of the Ancient World – namely the Mausoleum of Mausolus, the site of which is still there and can be visited, although not much of the mausoleum remains.
Bodrum is also home to a great family-friendly waterpark, an ancient Roman Theatre which holds modern concerts, a bustling market and much more. You can even get a boat trip to the nearby Greek island of Kos from Bodrum harbour.
Further round the Bodrum peninsula you have what was once the quiet fishing village of Gumusluk. Here is the site of the ancient city of Myndos – the remains of which are still visible beneath the waterline in Gumusluk Bay. Although it is still very quiet and is a protected area in terms of building restrictions, Gumusluk is waking up to the possibilities of tourism and there are some fantastic fish restaurants right on the water’s edge in the bay area.
One of the best ways to explore this historic and beautiful area is to rent an apartment and some luxury apartments are available for rent in the Gumusluk area. Check out www.Apartment-Turkey.co.uk
