Orhaniye like all the other villages on the Bozburun can sometimes suffer from an erratic water supply in the summer when peak demand for water often exceeds that available from the village supply. Some villages like Selimiye actually cut off the water supply during the day in summer so it can be a real challenge for visitors to the Peninsula.
To provide the best possible infrastructure to Luxury Villas Turkey guests we have been building a private water supply system for our villas over the last 12 months and it is due to be completed in time for our 2012 season guests. It has been a big project linking up three villas by laying over 700 metres of private water mains. Now two private wells pump water into our new water system with nearly 15,000 litres of backup tanks. This system is used to provide independence from the local village water supply and is a second level of redundancy against village water failures.
Certainly when you live in rural Turkey you never take for granted your water supply like we do in the UK!
