Ortakent guide for lifestyle, entertainment and attractions
Ortakent is one of the oldest towns on the Bodrum Peninsula, and has some of the oldest property. Ortakent translates to "middle town", an apt name for a town often used as a central base from which to explore the peninsula.
Ortakent is a great place for a permanent home as it offers a year-round lifestyle. Winters are mild and peaceful, and summers are busy and bustling. The peninsula's sole international school is in Ortakent - a huge bonus for young families, as a number of expats living in the area will agree.
Ortakent is famed for its citrus fruits, long coastlines and historical ruins. Those looking for authenticity often purchase traditional village houses in Ortakent. However, most areas are restricted for foreigners.
