I live in the U.K but also have a home near Bodrum in Turkey.
If you love history,exploring archaeological sites,stunning coastlines and friendly people then I'd recommend this area for a trip.
Best time of year is May or September when it's not too hot or too overcrowded.
Here is an image from my latest trip taken on a peninsula between Gumbet & Bodrum Bay.
I also have added a link to the making of trailer.
