World-famous soccer player for Real Madrid & the Portuguese national team Cristiano Ronaldo holidays in Bodrum following his debut foray in property in Turkey.
Real Madrid’s famous forward Cristiano Ronaldo arrived in Turkey aboard Beşiktaş Club President, Yıldırım Demirören’s private aircraft accompanied by his girlfriend the famous Russian model Irina Shayk.
The private aircraft carrying the couple landed at Istanbul Ataturk Airport early on Saturday. They were then transferred to their accommodation at the Çırağan Kempisnki Hotel by helicopter.
According to sources, while Ronaldo flew on to the Çırağan he was mesmerised by the Bosporus Strait & commented, "It is as beautiful as they say it is!"
Ronaldo travelled to Istanbul in order to sign a contract for his partnership with Demirören in investment property. Demirören will be going into the tourism construction business with the world famous footballer although the exact nature of the business remains guarded.
Cristiano & Irina will go on to enjoy the Turkish holiday resort of Bodrum & the couple will explore the famous Bodrum nightlife & clubs this weekend.
As guests of the Beşiktaş Club Chairman, Ronaldo was in Istanbul on Saturday where he attended the opening ceremony of a shopping mall owned by Demirören drawing a huge crowd to the famous İstikal Caddesi in Taksim.
After a day visiting Istanbul, Cristiano & Irina continued their trip to enjoy the beautiful Bodrum coastline of southwest Turkey. The couple flew in Demirören’s private aircraft to Bodrum International Airport & received first class treatment.
On the way to Bodrum photographers managed to capture their picture wearing similar rings on their left hand. This has led to engagement rumours about the couple.
The famous soccer player received a lot of attention from fans in Bodrum & Gumbet, Turkey.
Having experiencing both pleasure & fear at the immense crowds that gathered to welcome the Portuguese player in Istanbul, Ronaldo asked, “Is Bodrum going to be anything like this?” Ronaldo was especially shocked to see the throngs of fans waiting to see him on İstiklal Caddesi & commented, “It's both amazing & terrifying." Demirören reassured the star player, “Don't worry, a very peaceful & beautiful vacation awaits you in Bodrum."
Ronaldo landed at Bodrum airport flown in on Demirören's private aircraft. Where he was also received with much interest & later travelled in a black minibus accompanied by a five-car convoy for the couple’s short stay at the Kempinski Barbaros Bay Hotel in Yali, one of many luxury coastal villages along the Bodrum coastline.
Cristiano & Irina then boarded Demirören's Ziya-1 yacht docked at Kempinski Barbaros Bay Hotel. Shortly afterwards the couple sailed off in the azure waters of the Aegean for a dreamy blue cruise vacation.
"Where did you say Cumberland Properties were?
Can we see them from here?"
"They're over there somewhere...
They build select holiday & investment homes & are the premier high-end property developer on the Bodrum peninsula."
"Their Turkish villas & apartments look really smart - can't we take a closer look? They have an office in Bodrum."
"You know we're only over here for a few days...
Next time - for sure."
Ronaldo & Shayk will spend four days vacationing on Demirören’s yacht before returning to Portugal.
