Bodrum Sofabed HotelAbout Us
As its name simplies, Ortakent (middle town) is centrally located on the Bodrum peninsula, making it most suitable as a base from which to explore the region. Yahsi, on the other hand, means pretty, so it’s the proper name for Ortakent’s lovely seaside area.
The beach is long and wide, with cooling breezes coming off the sea to provide relief from the summer heat and aid in getting a suntan. Waiters from the cafes and restaurants along the shore will willingly serve you on the beach if you don’t feel like moving from your favoured spot. It’s a peaceful, quite place, ideal to laze the hours away.
Inhabited in the Mycenaean Era more than 3500 years ago, Ortakent retains its attachment to the soil. The green fertile valley between the town and the shore abounds in fig, olive and mandarin trees and neat market gardens.
