Mumcular Overseas

On this Mumcular Overseas page we will show you pictures of the Mumcular area along with descriptions. Hopefully this page will give you get a feel for the area & show you some of the natural beauty. Most of these pictures were taken by Lorraine & I in April 2006 when we went to Mumcular to take pictures for the brochure for our property development. On the way we stopped at the Eden Hotel in Bodrum to say hello to a friend Mehmet. It was his day off so we asked if he'd like to come along. He said he'd be pleased to do so as he lived in the area & knew it very well.

Leaving Bodrum, we took the very scenic road which meanders along the southern coast of Mumcular. We then turn up over the hills & back down onto the flat plain through farmland & many pretty villages. Coming off the main highway just out of Bodrum, we turned onto the Mumcular back road & stopped to take a photo. You can see the main Bodrum-Milas road in the picture on the right.

On the road to Kizilagac, Mehmet tried to describe the fruit which was being grown in an Orchard we passed. He described them as small & green & called them Erik's. We couldn't guess what he was trying to describe so we stopped at the fruit stall in Kizilagac but they did not have any. We later found out that an Erik is a plum which the Turkish eat whilst it is green & crunchy. We are not likely to forget the Turkish word for a plum now! Living in a country certainly makes learning the language easier.

We tried to get a close up picture of the traditionally dressed Turkish lady leading the donkey, but she declined telling Mehmet she was shy.

Yaliciftlik is the first coastal village you encounter on the road to Mumcular. This beautiful place is currently a conservation area which protects it from over-development. We hope the local Belediyesi will ensure it remains this way & not give in to land hungry developers.

Continuing along the coast, we passed a fish restaurant which Mehmet told us is run by the local government & is very good & cheap. We intend to try it soon.

Continuing up the hills towards Mumcular we passed this pretty Mosque & a sea of red poppies.

When we reached the top we were greeted with these lovely views of lots of villages scattered across the plain. Mehmet pointed out several of them to us including his own village & that of his parents.

Driving down into the valley & along the winding pot-holed roads, we passed through the tiny villages some of which had a cafe or a shop. We waved to the locals & occasionally stopped for Mehmet to chat to his friends whilst we took photos.

With Mumcular & Turkey being famous for its carpets, we asked Mehmet if he could take us to see some carpets being made. He was kind enough to take us to his sisters home where we had a coffee before going to a neighbours house to see her weaving a carpet. Unfortunately some of the pictures I took are a little blurred but I think they are still worth showing you.

The room had the loom at one end & cushions round the side for all the family to sit & talk or watch television. We were made to feel very welcome & shared some chay (Turkish tea) & a joke or two. We were even invited to a wedding in the village & so are now looking forward to our next visit.

Continuing on our journey to Mumcular Town, we stopped to take a picture of one of the many small white dome shaped buildings (shown below) which you can see scattered around the countryside. You may well wonder what they are for as we did. Our friendly guide Mehmet informed us that they are water stores used to collect the water as it comes off the hills. Inside is a large hole in the ground which collects the water through small holes at the base of the building. In the days before cars were common, travellers would stop at these "watering houses" to quench their own & their animals thirst.

We finally arrived in Mumcular & encountered the school on the left as we entered the town.
