Gökçebel Our Village

Is a charming little traditional style Turkish Village only 10 minutes from Yalikavak.

There is only one shop (sells bread water and eggs etc) and a tea garden mostly inhabited by the men of the village playing backgammon.

There is a small market every Tuesday selling locally grown fresh produce at good prices. You can find this one minute up the road from the house and cottage, set amongst a grove of pine trees.

Two breakfast restaurants/serving village breakfasts, more of a brunch than a breakfast, which are a must, are within five minutes of the house.

You will find, rugged rocks and lovely countryside and woodland around with a sprinkling of old ruins. Including ancient Roman Cisterns and a castle, found on Castle Street.

The people of the village are very friendly and helpful.

There is a bus stop outside shop, the bus into Yalikavak and Bodrum goes and comes every hour. This stops at all the beaches on the way to Yalikavak.
