Yalikavak home to the rich and famous in South West Turkey

The Bodrum Peninsular in south west Turkey and in particular the small village of Yalikavak has become a thriving centre for upmarket investment. The rich and famous are building homes on the waters edge and more usually high in the hills above the village, sometimes for security reasons and to take advantage of the wonderful views of the Aegean, while enjoying a gentle breeze in the summer months.
