With their sea views, private pools, gardens and real mix of rustic and modern exteriors and interiors, these villas portray country ‘mansion’ living in this beautiful area of the Bodrum Peninsula, Turkey.
Located in a green and natural unspoilt area just outside of Gumusluk village, this villa project is less than 5 minutes away from the popular fishing bay of Gumusluk itself, where traditional restaurants line the sea front and bay. A good Migros supermarket is a further 5 minutes away and the larger Marina resort of Turgutreis, a 10 minute drive.
The unusual architecture and cleverly designed grand villas are unique due to their internal and external living areas.

Kitchens are beautifully equipped with luxury country style units and breakfast bar. The ‘outside’ lounges are within the main building but accessed off the internal lounge/kitchen. This consists of a balcony with wooden high apex ceilings, fireplace, dining and seating area at first floor, with open sea-facing non glazed ‘windows’ and, at ground floor another covered ‘lounge’ in the entrance hallway, also with fireplace for winter living. 4 spacious double size en-suite bedrooms complete the living accommodation together with a separate cloakroom/WC. En-suite’s are a mix of modern contemporary and rustic chic design with the use of natural stone.
Outside, these 8 houses blend into the natural landscape of stone and green surroundings. The use of natural local stone and wood is evident, plus trees and shrubs have been retained around the project. Private pools, with steps leading into them sit in lawned private gardens against the natural backdrop.
Spectacular sunsets at this historic location. Grand country ‘mansion’ type homes for year round living or exquisite holiday homes. Hi-tech intercom video entrance system, 24 hour caretaker and fire/smoke detectors.
The peaceful village of Gumusluk is one of the oldest settlements on the Bodrum peninsula standing on the site of the ancient Carian city of Myndus. Because of this, Gumusluk is protected against developments, which means it has not been over developed.
Today Gumusluk retains a small-scale, relaxed and magical atmosphere thanks to strictly enforced building prohibitions, designed to protect the ancient site. Gumusluk is the perfect antidote for modern-day living, it’s a great place to unwind in an idyllic setting. Bars & Restaurants are also forbidden from playing music too loud!
The wonderful shelter of the bay provides a natural harbour for yachts and local fishing boats, and the waterfront restaurants enjoy a reputation for excellent fresh fish amongst the Turks as far away as Istanbul. Gumusluk is famed amongst many famous Turkish actors, artists and musicians who frequent the bay during the summer months.
Rabbit Island, famous for its rabbits scurrying around, offers a magnificent panorama of the bay, and separates the two well-sheltered bays of Gumusluk. It is easily accessible by a partially sunken causeway.
