No, itīs not Greece. Even though it looks like Greece.
No wonder. The area was inhabited by Greeks until the beginning of the Turkish republic.
The Greek island of Kos is just a few kilometers away from the Bodrum peninsula.
The climate is the same, too.
In the photo you can see part of a house with a Bougainvillea bush. You can see Bougainvilleas in almost every garden in the Bodrum area.

Very pretty shot, with the bougainvillea against the white house; nicely framed. I might have tried fiddling with the white balance and/or shading to lighten the shadowed portion of the house, but still a lovely photo.

magnificent shot!I like how you combined different elements of these composition in one piece to achieve such beautiful and expressive result.Indeed,the white facade of the house makes we associate it immediately with Greece.Your close-up vision of this scene appeals to me much.Fabulous combination of different vivid and contrasting colors.
Have a nice evening

Very beautiful combination of colours, the pink against the white and blue is particuarly lovely. Love the point of view too, and that you have included the windows.
All the best

Beautiful capture of those flowers against Greek architecture! I like your pov and it has wonderful colors. The focus especially of the flowers is little off, you might want to use a higher f stop like f9 for better dof. Otherwise well done, tfs.

Very creative approach to edit this type of photo in cinemascope! That's why the flowers look a bit out of focus - cinemascope filter does have that effect of blurring sometimes. But it doesn't take away from the romantic warm mood of the shot. I like it!

nice palette of colours here. Pleasant view for eyes. Pity that image is a bit unsharp.
Have a nice evening.
