"Thanks to you Ferhan: A wonderful place to be on top of it all"
I chose Villa Ferhan through the internet, and it was the first time for me to do anything like this. A bit apprehensive as the airplane landed at Milas airport, two ladies, winie and I took our luggage outside. A big sigh of relief when, as agreed, Ali was there holding a card with my name on it. He drove us to the villa right on top of the hill where Mrs Fetrhan greeted us at the gate and showed us around. The surrounding garden was pleasure to the eyes, and the swimming pool and the terrace and patio furniture were as described, except when you are there it feels much more wonderful with the breeze and a unique 340 degrees panoramic view over Bitez Bay and the green peaceful valley and the surrounding hills nestling hundreds of whitewashed condominiums like an artist drawing. The interior was immaculate and tastefully decorated. The kitchen had all what we need, bathrooms towels were fresh and the bedding was excellent. The air-condition units worked perfectly. Although the villa is minutes away from local shops, Bitez bay and Bodrum town, I think a car is essential, be it a Taxi or a rented car. I also bought a Turkish telephone chip from saw airport to make communication easier when needed. Mrs. Ferhan was half the story and source of delight and comfort in my 9 days wonderful vacation. She is a true lady, generous and graceful and always there, through sms or emails, and in person if need be. She went out of her way to make me feel in real vacation at my second home and never for one second felt like a tourist or an insecure foreigner in a strange surrounding. Fresh flowers were picked and placed on the breakfast table in the patio, light were turned on outside at sunset, first day groceries was made with her help and car, my renting a car, my first trip to Bodrum, and direction through the narrow allies to the right parking lot or the best ice-cream parlor were all made with her help and local knowledge and much more. The location and the villa layout and class allowed us both to easily reach and enjoy other towns and villages with the crowd, and at the same time to enjoy a private and relaxed dip in the pool and a homemade meal or grill from local produce in a five star atmosphere. Billion thanks to you Ferhan dearest.
