Overview

About the property

Villa in Bitez, Bodrum Peninsula, Turkey - Close To Beach, Easy Access To Restaurants And Public Transport

Villa Lou is a lovely, newly renovated, fully air-conditioned three bedroom villa with beautiful views overlooking the Bitez Marina and Bay, and caters for every whim of the discerning holidaymaker. ( To see a video of Villa Lou and the pool please press the video icon near the photos)

Plug your I-pod into the speaker dock and chill out watching the yachts and listening to your favourite tunes on the BBQ terrace with a cold beer or glass of wine.

Take a swim in the beautiful clear water of the swimming pool with its sun-loungers and shaded areas, or stroll into Bitez, which retains its village feel, but has something to offer everyone, young or old.

The Bitez marina is only 5 minutes walk down the hill from Villa Lou, and the main beach area, with its free sun beds and wide choice of bars and restaurants, is only a further 5 minutes stroll.

The choice is yours - relax on the beach and top up your tan or keep yourself cool under the large sun umbrellas or if you are feeling energetic try your hand at one of the wide range of water-sports activities such as windsurfing, water-skiing, scuba diving, sailing, yachting, paragliding, or having fun on the ringos/banana. Biking, horse riding and tennis are also available. Bitez is a tranquil alternative to nearby Bodrum and Gumbet, and Villa Lou provides the perfect base. The swimming pool is generally open in June, July and August and September although the opening and closing dates are at the discretion of the site management and beyond our control.

Guestbook comments from the owner

After 3 weeks in Villa Lou we did not want to come home the villa has everything you need to make it feel like home. I stayed with my husband, teenage son, and family friends also with a teenage son. The villa had enough indoor/outdoor space for everyone. The views are to die for we never closed the blinds for 3 weeks it was amazing. The villa in greatly situated for Bitez and Gumbet our teenagers could walk into and home from Gumbet in the small hours safely. Only downfall was that is was only for 3 weeks but we will definitely be back next year. July 2013



I would recommend Villa Lou highly and we will consider it again for 2014, excellent facilities, great location, handy for everything Bitez has to offer (and close to Gumbet and Bodrum). July 2013



My four friends and I stayed at Villa Lou for a week in early July. The house was just lovely. Lots of room and comfort. I would recommend the house to any young couples visiting the area. July 2013

Fautless

  • 5 of 5

we were a group of five adults staying for two weeks, how I wish it could have been for longer! The photos of the villa do not do it justice, it is stunning and has every amenity you could possibly want during your stay.

The villa is very spacious with three large terraces all with fantastic views. Having three bathrooms was great, it meant nobody was hanging around for long waiting to shower. Great communal areas in the villa but also loads of room for everybody to have their own space.

Very close to all the restaurants, the harbour and the beach, the village is just a short Dolmus ride away with a great butcher and fishmonger if you want to make use, as we did, of the BBQ.

Peter and Lou were excellent hosts, very warm and friendly and always available if you needed anything but not at all intrusive.

Would go back in a heartbeat, thank you Peter and Lou for a wonderful stay.

We aim to give our guests information about restaurants (and trips) which are great "local" finds so they really make the most out of their holiday. We look forward to welcoming you back to our villa sometime in the future. Best wishes Lou & Peter

Great place and location. Nice design and layout.

  • 5 of 5

Very well equipped and comfortable villa on 3 levels. Glorious views from the dining balcony over the bay. Easy walking to the marina (you must try a boat trip to swim with the fish in the various "blue lagoons"). Local prices very reasonable, including dining out and the town of Bitez is also nearby. The owners are on site and extremely helpful and friendly. We all had a fantastic time. Thanks again to Peter and Lou.

Villa Lou Bitez

  • 5 of 5

This is a very well presented and equipped property, right down to the sharp knives, barbeque charcoal and fire lighter. The owners were on site and able to provide friendly, first hand help and advice. Views from the main balcony, where there is a built in barby and great views over the bay. Try one of the boat trips; it's a must and the owners can help with this. It's a short walk down to the marina and cost is reasonable. The shared swimming pool is 23m long and not at all busy. We often had it to ourselves. The location is also handy for the local beaches and restaurants. The villa is well laid out and the ground floor kitchen/dining/lounge are is very spacious. There were six of us and we all agreed that the holiday was superb, not least because of the villa and the help and attention given by Pete and Lou.

Excellent villa

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in villa lou for 11 days in June, a family of two adults and two teenagers.

The villa is excellent, the photos do not do it justice. The facilities and views are both top class.

With Bitez beach just a walk away for both day and night entertainment and the dolmus for bodrum just 200 yards walk this is a super location to spend a few weeks enjoying all that Turkey has to offer.

Car: not necessary

The villa is an ideal base for those who want to take part in water sport activities and lessons/ courses are available in Bitez for Sub-Aqua, Sailing and Windsurfing. There are numerous dive sites in the Bodrum Peninsula and dives can be arranged from the Dive boat in the Bitez Marina. We would be please to supply details upon request.

Bitez is an ideal base for touring or day trips.

Bodrum - St Peter's Castle - dating back to the 15th Century - approx 15 minutes by dolmus from Bitez.

Turgutreis and Yalikavak - fabulous marinas and weekly markets (Saturday and thursday) -1 hour by dolmus.

Gumusluk - site and ruins of ancient city of Myndos -1 hour by dolmus.

Ephesus - Temple of Artemis - 1 day and 2 days tours are available

Pammukale - UNESCO site- Calcium Pools - 1 day and 2 days tours are available

There is an excellent choice of bars and restaurants within walking distance offering both international and traditional Ottoman cuisine with good friendly service at reasonable prices.

Shopping lovers are spoilt for choice - there are weekly markets in several resorts within the Bodrum Peninsula - ideal for bargain hunters and three up-market shopping centres ( Oasis, Avenue and Mid-Town) with designer shops and restaurants.

There are daily boat trips from both Bitez and Bodrum marinas which stop off at secluded coves for sunbathing, swimming and snorkelling. Private gulet hire can also be chartered from the Marina.

The Greek islands of Kos and Kalymnos are within easy reach of Bodrum by boat and are popular day trips.

There are beautiful walking trails around Bitez, both coastal and inland, where the stunning coastal scenery, woodlands and historic ruins can be enjoyed.

Not to be missed is a visit to the Hamam – the Turkish bath for a scrub and soap massage – then why not follow that with an oil massage and feel more relaxed than you ever thought possible.

In addition to local activities there are jeep safaris, horse-back riding, river-rafting and Aquaparks visits are available should you require. To really get a flavour of the various resorts on the Bodrum peninsula we would recommend car hire to explore even further.

Bitez literally has something for everyone which perhaps explains why so many people return year after year.
