Hi Everyone,

Just wondering if anybody knows where I can get a really good manufactured steel roller shutter for my villa - we were recently burgled and think this may be one of the best deterrents to fit to the french doors.

We only want proper manufactured shutters - not home made preferbly buying them in the Bodrum area.

Sorry about the break-in - join the club! There are several places to buy shutters and some have handy vents to allow a little air in while shut. Having said that, we prefer the ornate grilles because you can close and lock them while still allowing light and air in. We contacted Gale and Martyn at Bodrum Garden Homes in the Oasis centre who organized our grilles and am sure they would know of a place for the roller shutters. If you can't find them, ,mail again, though I think I would have to PM the reply - how technical!
Also - if you haven't already done so, we strongly recommend you install a well hidden safe for cash/jewelry/mobile etc.

have sent pm. regarding a safe .if you can ,and i know it will be messy but concrete it in the floor, say under a wardrobe,as they have been known to do un told damage trying to smash them out of walls. if its concreted in the floor its much harder for them.

Hi Guys,

Following on from the post above, if you haven't got someone to check on your property or manage it in your absence I can happily recommend Martyn and Gale who provide this service in the Bodrum Area. You need to be informed about any problems swiftly, and have someone to make repairs on your behalf.

As an alternative to installing a safe, Garanti bank allow a deposit box for very modest annual charges. I realise its not as convenient, but it sure is secure ! I'm sure other banks provide the same facility. If you need to keep cash, this would be a better bet than a "shopping chain" standard safe.

If your valuables are considerable, like all things, consider what you are paying for and the quality of the goods you are buying, where you would install it and how long it might withstand attack. Sometimes a discreet small stash can well placed can be better than a "cheap" safe.

We actually have a moderatly hidden safe where we leave only about 50YTL, a cheap mobile (broken) and a 'diamond' ring from Debenhams in a flashy box. The husband wanted to include an angry poisonous spider, but I said that would not be kind - to the spider. Our other safe is very well hidden, but now we don't take jewelry or expensive mobiles on holiday and spare cash is banked ASAP.
We absoloutly agree that Martyn and Gale are wonderful (just today they are trying to discover why we suddenly have no electricity) and have had to go all the way to Yalikavak to do so - nothing is ever too much trouble for them. I do worry that Martyn will one day fall over our trip wires and a blank cartridge will go off in his ear! I bribe him with Colemans mustard and Garniers pickled onions!
