Though far from the “madding crowd”, Bozurun is only 45km from the bustling metropolis of Marmaris. It takes about one hour by taxi or bus; the local dolmus goes at least 6 times a day.
Dalaman Airport is just 135km away. Bodrum/Milas Airport, 200 km away
Bozburun is a picturesque fishing village, set within a secluded bay, with tranquil waters, surrounded by panoramic views and pure romance. Mountains in every direction and as you gaze out onto the horizon, you can see the Greek Islands of Symi and Rhodes. The famous Turkish Gulet boats are made locally and you can see the builders at work.
Built by Ramazan Olgun & his family in ’91, this place has a million dollar location - immediately on the waterfront ! Yet it still remains quiet and tranquil; and most of all, with a family ambiance that makes you feel instantly at home.
You can choose to chill out totally in one of their hammocks strung amongst the herb gardens; soak up the sun on their beach patio or sip on a beer or raki and admire the sunset colours. There are kayaks to explore the extensive, sheltered bay, and breath-taking views from hikes along the hillsides. The little village of Bozburun is just 15mins walk away, or a few minute ride in their little transfer boat. This is one of the last villages to still have a thriving traditional wooden boat building community; it’s fascinating to watch the local craftsmen still at work here.
All relaxed and looking for a little more activity after a while ?? – Ramazan can organise all sorts of other local adventures; a fishing expedition with the locals perhaps – sailing, horse-riding, hiking to a local waterfall, other historic areas nearby.
For a taste of modern day Turkey, Marmaris is only an hour’s ride away; nothing like coming home to total tranquillity after a frenetic day’s fun around the bazaars
With just 18 rooms in total, Aphrodite will never lose it’s home-like touch. Singles, twins and doubles are available, all recently furnished in a typical, traditional Turkish style.
All have private wc/bath and a/c ; every room has a stunning view over the garden out to sea, each with own little patio or balcony. The garden, restaurant and rooms are all shaded with vines and fig trees; a soothing back-to-nature ambiance hard to find in these busy times.
