  1. Hi Joe, I have been to " The Village" in Bodrum for five weeks and came back last week. My Villa is kind of finished with minor issues that need to be resolved. However all this will be done in due course. Phase 2 work is due to start in September/11 as they have just leveled off the site and will be laying down foundations in September.

    Phase 1 work is almost complete with all the swimming pools functioning and I have not had any problems whilst staying there. I do believe that the phase 2 is expected to be completed in 2013.

    All I can say is that the progress of work is bit slow but they are genuine people and have been looking after us. If there is any help that I can give please feel free to send me an e=mail [email protected]



  2. It appears to me that there are not many people from Europe settled around Bodrum and Tuzla lake. There are many new developments going on but like Steve I have not come across many people on TC forum sharing their experiences. I have just come back from Turkey myself after spending 4 weeks near Tuzla lake. I have spotted lots of flamingos in the Tuzla lake on my daily walks but found Turkey to be little bit cold in February/March.

    I am thinking of going back again sometimes in May, hopefully it should be little bit warmer. I have already written about the villa that I have acquired in "The village* where there are 23 units mostly owned by foreigners.

    I am quite happy about the place but they are little bit slow in their finishing off the work. It would be nice to come across few more like minded people to have a sense of community - perhaps I should pay more attention to learning Turkish.

  3. Your place looks beautiful. I have just come back from Bodrum and can't honestly say if there were any flamingos but when I was there in September this year I did see lot of sea gulls in the Vita Golf park lake but no flamingos. It would be sad to see if these lovely birds disappearing from the lake.

    I am new Villa owner in the area but already I am finding that to live there having a car is a must because all the shops and stores are at a distance. Eating from nearby restaurants is very expensive even more expensive than London.

  4. Thanks Abi and Nitrox but there was a lot of anguish whilst waiting for its completion as there was lack of information coming forth. At present only two families have moved in and soon all the other units will be occupied. My Children came out see the villa whilst we were still out there and it felt like heaven as the say away from the maddening crowd.

    I am making effort to learn Turkish as I have found that English is hardly spoken although eyes, smiles and hand gestures can speak volumes.

  5. I am now a proud owner of a new villa in a new development called "The Village". I must admit that I had some serious concerns to begin with as I was not getting enough information being sent but now the villa has been completed it looks stunning with mountains as a backdrop.

    This development is on the road D330 and 10 minutes drive from Bodrum airport. The development is coming in three phases with phase one almost completed and all the properties have been purchased in phase 1.

    There are 3 villas and 23 one bedroom and two bedroom apartments with communal swimming pools as well as the the villas having a small private pools.

    Second phase will have 75 units including 7 villas and after the second phase there will be a third phase coming in.

    Close by two big supermarkets are being developed which would be very handy for all the shopping needs.

    I think for anybody interested in investing in a Turkish property it will prove to be a solid investment which is just opposite Vita Park Golf Club.

  6. Hi I am new to this forum so do bear with me if I am making any mistakes. I would be interested in finding out if anybody has bought new property being in The village close to Bodrum Airport near Vita Golf club. The developers are SCV Koraglu and the completion date was to be Feb/2010 but this date keeps on shifting. New completion date is end of July/2010. The developers are probably very nice people but are not very good at communicating as to what is going on.

    It would be nice to hear from anyone who has bought a property in phase one and their experiance.

    RegardsKamal Bhardwaj
