Welcome to Bozburun on the Bozburun Peninsula, Turkey. This community guide helps holiday guests find suitable accommodation or a Blue Cruise when exploring Bozburun and the fabulous Bozburun Peninsula.
Around Bozburun you can find a wealth of holiday accommodation to meet all requirements, from simple Pansiyons (bed and breakfast houses) to apartments, hotels, to luxury villas in Turkey with ecological chlorine-free private pools. Its your decision.
Bozburun now has its own Harbour Customs Post to provide Customs clearance for Gulet Cruises that sail to Simi, Rhodes and the other Greek islands close by. This makes Bozburun the gateway to Greece as gulet cruises save at least one day sailing from Bozburun, compared to Marmaris, Datca or Bodrum.
This is a big boost to Bozburun tourism as Gulet Cruises or Blue Cruises will now enter and leave Turkey via Bozburun. Gulet cruises starting in Selimiye and Orhaniye heading to the Greek islands can now directly clear Customs at Bozburun, avoiding the long detour to Datca Customs down the Datca peninsula.
The nearest airport to our luxurious villas near Bozburun is Dalaman (DLM), which is about 2.5 hours transfer away by car. Next nearest is Bodrum, which is about a further 30 minutes away by car. The nearest large city to Bozburun is bustling Marmaris.
Bozburun, by contrast is a lovely relaxed town that makes its living mostly from the sea in terms of fishing and yacht/gulet charters. Most people arrive in Bozburun by yacht or gulet. This should not be surprising as Bozburun is also world-famous for the construction of wooden Turkish gulets, built entirely using centuries-old traditions.
Bozburun is an excellent place to retreat from the pressures of modern life. We hope to see you soon in beautiful Bozburun, staying in our luxury stone villas.
Welcome to Bozburun, a corner of paradise with its matchless natural beauty, situated where the Aegean and the Mediterranean seas meet. With a population of just 2400, our quiet town is blessed with beautiful bays and coves, with the heritage of ancient civilizations. Bozburun is world famous for the construction of traditional wooden two masted, light rigged schooners – called Gulets. During the summer season Bozburun attracts many guests so you will find plenty of yachts and Gulets in our harbour. Many of our guests become captivated by Bozburun’s beauty and return year after year, staying in luxury villas for rent.
Bozburun has a mild climate, so is warm all year around, producing a clean environment with abundant oxygen. Our peaceful environment means our guests leave us renewed, refreshed and happy after a stay in Bozburun. When staying in Bozburun, there are clean and comfortable pensions with reasonable prices, hotels, motels and boutique hotels that meet different holiday accommodation requirements. For eating, we have a number of restaurants that serve delicious and healthy sea food along with the favourite dishes from Turkish cuisine, with markets and weekly open market for self catering guests.
Around the town and harbour’s edge you will find our coffee and tea houses offering a chance to refresh yourself and admire Bozburun, with souvenir shops for memories of your stay in Turkey.
For the best experience of Bozburun, I recommend swimming in our pristine waters around the bays and taking beautiful photos home of our breathtaking views. Bozburun literally means “bare point” in Turkish but if you take the effort to come and visit us, there’s no chance that you will find it bare or regret it.

What a stunning place! A wonderful villa set in the heart of breathtakingly beautiful scenery.
A perfect villa in a beautiful, unspoilt part of rural Turkey. Everything was so perfect. Very easy to book and then sit back and do no more except get to the airport. Highly recommended.
The website doesn’t do justice to the villa. It was everything we were hoping it would be and more. Only 25 minutes from Marmaris, but might as well have been 1,000 miles. The countryside is so peaceful and the local villages so picturesque, just what is needed to unwind and recharge the batteries.
A stunning villa that lived up to the photographs and the excellent information provided on the website. To have knowledgeable and friendly locals on hand to provide advice when required enabled us to make even better use of Villa Nurtan and the stunning locality.
This has been one of the best holidays that we have ever had. The villa is superb and it has been lovely having the occasional Turkish tea with your team, who kept the pool immaculate.
Thank you for a wonderful week in Orhaniye. You seem to have thought of everything. Local knowledge of how to enjoy yourself, a really comfortable villa, all mod cons and a lovely pool.We would recommend it to anyone. hope to return in the future to sample more of your excellent hospitality.
What an awesome place!I felt like a king being able to return to Villa Nurtan after being out for the day. The quality of the whole place is incredible!In between relaxing I was busy taking photos to send back home (to gloat about where I was!). An amazing place that I cannot wait to return to. I’d recommend it to anyone! It truly is a luxury villa!
We have to say it was wonderful to stop in your villa. It is quite superb in terms of quality and location. the pool was just the place to dive into after a strenuous morning reading and tasting the local “EFES”.
Well what can we say … beautiful villa, wonderful location, great support team – what else would you want?
A Spotlessly clean villa in a fantastic garden setting. It had every amenity we could wish for, and lots of ones that we didn’t expect. The pool was a great temperature and very refreshing, being free from chlorine, and the barbecue area was excellent. I will definitely recommend your villas to others.
Perfect villa, perfect location, perfect holiday…
I have been to lots of villas in lots of countries and Villa Lale ranks number one – it is a seriously beautiful villa in a stunning location and absolutely everything is provided for the perfect holiday. Oh and the weather is pretty damn good too!
Thank you so much for the opportunity to stay in this beautiful place and for the special touches you provided in the villa. We look forward to staying again soon!
The villa and surrounding valley are absolutely beautiful. …the valley is stunning and the villa a fantastic design providing plenty of space, sun and shelter.
We had a fantastic visit!Must dos:Turn of all the lights in the villa and watch the shooting stars. Leave the pool lights on and watch the bats. Do a local boat trip. Support team were an absolute delight and made us feel really welcome.
This is our first visit to Turkey and our stay at Villa Anni has been perfect. The villa is fantastic and very much a credit to John and Ann for making it such a wonderful holiday retreat. All in all, this has been one of our most enjoyable holidays and we will definitely return to do the other things time did not allow us on this occasion.
Thank you very much for renting us your wonderful villa. We had a fabulous time, the weather was lovely, and the villa very comfortable. We really liked the pool and spent a lot of time in there. We thought that the team were lovely very helpful. Meliha the housekeeper was really sweet, she even folded our clothes up!
We had a wonderful time and as you predicted we didn’t really want to leave. Everyone was very helpful and welcoming and I know we will be back again in the future. You have a beautiful villa and it was the best holiday we’ve had in years.
If ever there was an advert for the pleasure of a more rural and relaxed way of life this is it. Thanks for discovering this idyllic spot and then sharing it with others! Can’t wait to recharge our batteries again next year.
There aren’t enough superlatives to describe Villa Nurtan. If you haven’t stayed at John’s house before, I am sure you will now have discovered just how wonderful it is! ….sitting on the veranda of Villa Nurtan hearing the Iman’s ‘call to prayers’ is, for us, part of the wondrousness of Turkey and this Turkey/Orhaniye/Villa Nurtan experience.
Villa Anni was perfect and we really enjoyed it. I thought the amount of care you have put into furnishing it shone through and makes the holiday even more enjoyable. Thanks and well done on achieving such beautiful villas in keeping with the surroundings. Loved the village and the people are so friendly and kind.
I just wanted to let you know that we had a fantastic time last week in Turkey. The villa was excellent and we were well looked after by all your friends and colleagues. As we have enjoyed ourselves so much we would like to book the same week next year.
We had a wonderful week at Villa Nurtan: you have created a very beautiful place. We were very happy with our stay, and would happily recommend Villa Nurtan to our friends.
I’m pleased to say that the villa is every bit as good as you described it if not better. We all had a fabulous time and everyone really enjoyed it. I will send you a few of the hundreds of photos we took – they might be good for you to use to show how family oriented the villa can be. Can you pass our thanks on to the team for looking after us and we look forward to returning in the near future.
This was a wonderful holiday , ‘Just brilliant ‘ said our son. The villa,coast and landscape were lovely but what made it particularly special for us were the close and friendly links with local people and the community that are part of what John has built.
Villa Nurtan far exceeded our expectations…To enjoy such a beautiful house, Orhaniye and the warmth of the local people was a wonderful experience. The gardens are beautiful. We particularly enjoyed the chlorine free waters of the pool. We’ve had a lovely, lovely holiday…
This is a beautiful villa and everything is perfect. The pool is amazing, the locals are welcoming, the food’s delicious and the scenery is unbelievable.
The Villa was excellent and in a really beautiful location, we can certainly see the attraction of Turkey and especially this particular location. You have certainly thought of everything when it comes to the ‘home from home’ features and the appliances, as the cook I couldn’t see anything that was missing from the kitchen.
We had a fantastic holiday in Orhaniye and your beautiful villa, you have certainly thought of every thing that we would need to make a very comfortable stay in villa Lale. The Turkish people, especially the neighbours are really friendly. We will be thinking of returning again, hopefully next year.
The villa was immaculate with stunning surroundings. Orhaniye is a perfect place to relax and unwind. It’s peaceful and beautiful to explore. The smells of the flowers will bring me and my partner back alone. Can’t wait to come back.
What an amazing place and what a wonderful week! The villa was just awesome and was a great base to explore an unspoilt, quiet part of Turkey. We were able to walk straight from the villa into stunning hills with their green forests and the Mediterranean is only ten minutes away in the other direction.
What a fabulous place you have made! We can see why you love the area so much. We spent a very relaxing time at Orhaniye and will recommend your villa to everyone!
We had a great time at Orhaniye and Villa Lale. The villa had everything we needed (even the toaster) and the skype phone was a particularly thoughtful and very useful accessory. The peace and tranquility that the villa provides is priceless.
What a wonderful place! We have enjoyed every moment we have spent in this beautiful villa, so carefully tendered by your team.
We really had an enchanting holiday in the Villa, really special. Loved the people, the culture, and all the lovely people who looked after us. The aspect was well and truly awesome, can’t wait to return.
Beautiful villa,beautiful location. Would definitely recommend this villa to anyone who enjoys the good things in life.
Very nice villa, just as described on the website. Quite rural, although that’s just what we were looking for. Very peaceful and relaxing, nothing to disturb you, no english pubs/bars, no nightclubs, just an oasis of peace and tranquility. Bliss.
A magical villa in an exceptional village with the most glorious people, I would recommend this beautiful villa to anyone looking for that special holiday experience.
We have had the most glorious 2 weeks here and saddened by our departure tomorrow. We honestly do not want to leave!! We thank you profusely for opening your home to us and for all the kind, generous and thoughtful touches and comforts of your “home away from home”. We have loved every minute, and have such fond memories that will last a lifetime.
Thank you so much for such a fantastic holiday. You villa is absolutely stunning as is the surrounding village. I can honestly say that I don’t think I’ve ever been as relaxed in my life! Our whole ‘Turkey Experience’ has been one which will live long in the memory.
We’ve had a great time, your house is superb. We have been coming to Orhaniye for over 10 years and we have enjoyed this stay in Villa Nurtan better than any other. The Villa Nurtan is truly wonderful and a testimony to the effort you, and your team must have put in to create it.
When we saw the villa being built last year we thought that it would be something special – and it is! What a team you have assembled! The guided tour was so helpful. Then we explored the ‘welcome pack’ and the furnishings and were almost awestruck by the thought put into them.
The perfect mix of a luxury chill out retreat, rural setting and accessibility to explore the Bozburun Peninsula, This was the best possible start to our married life! An amazing experience! Fantastic. Best two weeks we have ever had.
This is our second visit to Turkey – but – this one gave us a real sense and taste of the Turkish Delights!
A marvellous holiday – flew by too quickly!Superb villa extremely comfortable with everything you could wish for. We spent a very relaxing time by the pool or on the verandah, enjoying glorious weather. We really felt like part of the village community – very friendly people.
We are having a GREAT time – FANTASTIC. Although this is our second visit we still marvel at how everything works, having stayed in a few villas around the world, as I am sure you have, you know what I mean. The kitchen for example is superb. ….Oh yes, and I suppose it is only a formality, we are having a FANTASTIC time – don’t plan on going anywhere else ever!
