Peksimet, an inland village in Turkey, located on the Bodrum Peninsula. It is part of the Turgutreis municipality and is 7 km from central Turgutreis. Its neighbour is the village of Dereköy [tr].

It is easy to drive through Peksimet without realizing it, but you can recognize the location of this village, because of a group of windmills on the hill.

HistoryEdit

Peksimet is also the Turkish word for twice-baked bread (similar to a hard rusk), and Peksimet got its name because the villagers supplied this bread to Turkish soldiers during the Turkish War of Independence (1919–1923), and the locals became known for its baking.[1]
