The small, inland village of Ortakent lies in the centre of the Bodrum Peninsula

Ortakent holidays will take you to a quiet, relaxing town in the southern area of the Bodrum Peninsular in Turkey.

One of the oldest settlements in Bodrum, the town is still watched over by the Mustafa Pasa, one of thirteen tower houses built to help defend this area in the 17th century.

The main town is set slightly inland with a lush green valley of citrus and fig groves alongside orchards of sweet smelling mandarins, separating it from the beach. The vast sands are lined with traditional Turkish bars and cafes in an area known as Yahsi, meaning “pretty” in Turkish and that it exactly what you’ll find on Ortakent holidays.
