Guide to Turkey Self Catering Holidays
With its miles of beautiful coastline and fascinating mix of cultures, Turkey is a fabulous year round destination for those seeking a relaxing holiday in the sun. Golden beaches nestle at the foot of rugged cliffs overlooking the sparkling turquoise waters of the Mediterranean and Aegean Seas, whilst modern holiday villages sit harmoniously alongside the fishing harbours, olive groves and ancient towns that characterise traditional Turkey.
The coastal peninsulas have spectacular scenery with rolling hills and scented pine forests offering glimpses of the sea far below, whilst culture vultures can explore quaint inland villages, admire fascinating historical ruins or pick up a bargain at a bustling bazaar. Villas to Go has a selection of superb villas in popular destinations along Turkey’s Aegean and Turquoise Coast
Enjoy idyllic, sun-soaked days on the beach where you can relax under a parasol whilst children enjoy the simple pleasures of splashing in the sea and building sandcastles. All the usual watersports are on offer along the coast, with plenty of marine life to see if you feel like donning a snorkel in the clear, blue waters.
The miles of magnificent coastline offer a choice of beaches from sweeping, sandy bays to secluded rocky coves with a backdrop of pine forests. There are many Blue Flag beaches to be found here, providing the ideal setting for a relaxing family holiday in the sun.
Towns such as Bodrum have an array of fashionable boutiques selling up to the minute clothing, with leather goods, fabric and jewellery being popular choices for bargain hunters. Try one of the weekly markets for local delicacies such as nuts, colourful spices, olive oil and of course, Turkish Delight.
A traditional local bazaar (or marketplace) is a shopper’s paradise. Explore the maze of stalls to find everything from magnificent woven carpets to handmade jewellery and local handicrafts for souvenirs.
Turkey is a fascinating mix of old and new, its diverse architecture and numerous ruins displaying the historical influence of powerful civilisations such as the Ancient Greeks and Romans.
At Gumusluk, you can snorkel around the barely submerged remains of the ancient Carian city of Myndous which slid into the sea in some long-forgotten earthquake. The Bodrum Peninsula has a superb 15th Century castle set on a rocky outcrop sheltering Bodrum’s bustling harbour, whilst Ephesus, once the capital of Roman Asia, has some wonderfully preserved ruins including temples, public baths and libraries.
Travel a little inland to visit quaint Turkish villages seemingly untouched by time and the modern world, surrounded by rolling hillsides covered in citrus orchards and olive groves. Hiking, horse-riding and jeep safaris are popular activities or for the lionhearted, even paragliding from a mountain top onto the beach! Olu Deniz in the Dalaman region is a stunning blue lagoon or ‘dead sea’ surrounded by a beach.
