Large, spacious house on hilltop village w local charm and views over the Eastern Aegean- favourite w. fellow international writers, artists, scholars

Our ' mountain house' is located in Geris (gerish) Village, well known locally for its diverse mix of residents- amongst the traditional locals are many national and international artists, scholars, writers, musicians etc..Sometimes referred to as the little Tibet of Bodrum, it overlooks from above (and is part of) the beautiful cosmopolitan, fishing town of Yalikavak (10 mins by local transport/ car).
Yalikavak. This region has a contemporary and cultural edge probably mainly due to its many artists, writers, and urbane intellectuals who have long term summer homes and some permanent residences here.

The house is in a great location, just near the main village square, with its two shops and tea house, as well as the main bus stop, (3 mins walk). The local bus service runs regularly from the village square to Yalikavak. The village boasts of the famous Panorama Pasanda Restaurant (10mins walk) with delicious menu and views over Yalikavak bay- see link below.

This summer rental is ideal for those who want a quiet, rural feel , yet with a short hop to restaurants, cafes, swimming , weekly markets of a lively, cosmopolitan town - even with its one corner transformed as a 'Miami'esque internationally known megamarina (Palmarina)!

The house is also available throughout the year, and becomes a wonderful, space to work, write, rest with wood stove and fireplace warmth, and plenty of space to hang out during the cooler months, also.

This large spacious, 3 storey house (lower ground flat not available) on three floors is well situated on its own cul de sac in the village centre. It has stunning views to the mountain range and the Eastern Agean sea from all windows, balconies and large vine covered terrace.

There is a simple uncluttered lay out throughout, with a fire place and mostly wood floor, staircase on the upper floors.
There is a stone barbecue oven in the garden with walnut, plum, pine nut, olive, almond, apple and several other non fruit trees.

The large living area is open plan and the front is open aspect with views over the valley to the sea. 3bedrooms, 2 bathrooms. The large lounge also has an adjacent area that can be used as a study space.

Anyone interested to rent for longer periods months can contact us directly for a negotiated rental price.
