Introduction to Turkey

A meeting of East and West, Turkey's ancient ruins are some of the most impressive in the Mediterranean, offset just as spectacularly by densely forested mountains, peaceful rivers and the bluest of seas. Explore inland and you’ll discover the countryside of a bygone era, where women in headscarves tend goats, men play backgammon in the shade of trees and everyone listens for the Muezzins's call to prayer. Family comes first here and the locals welcome visitors as one of their own, with children warmly included everywhere.

From cosmopolitan Kalkan to Akyaka and sleepy Bozburun, our well-appointed hotels, and villas include Turkey’s most beautiful holiday destinations.

Akyaka

At the heart of Gökova Bay sits this charming coastal town. A favourite destination of discerning Turks, it offers a slower paced kind of holiday in a timeless atmosphere. Part of the Cittaslow movement, it’s known for its whitewashed houses, typical, with their ornate pine-timbered eaves and balconies, of the local Ula-Muğla architecture.

Enjoy leisurely country walks, passing through fig and olive groves or drift into one of the local restaurants with their captivating views. A stay here is perfect for those who seek natural beauty yet enjoy a touch of discrete luxury.

Islamlar & Üzümlü

Nestled high in the foothills of the Taurus Mountains with impressive views towards Kalkan Bay, the timeless village of Islamlar offers the rural tranquillity of years gone by. Visitors can experience a way of life unchanged for centuries, where shepherds still herd their sheep and goats through the olive groves.

Kalkan

This picturesque harbour town is a cosmopolitan gem on the stunning Turquoise Coast. Rooftop restaurants and laid-back waterfront bars create the holiday ambience, without losing any of the Turkish character of traditional tea houses and weekly markets. For a perfect day’s excursion, visit the impressive ruins and rolling dunes of Patara.

Kaş

Bohemian Kaş has attracted travellers since the 1920s. A quintessentially romantic destination, visitors can explore the beauty of the dramatic coastline, with its watersports and diving; go climbing in the nearby mountains or explore the winding streets of this traditional market town, home to painters and performers, as well as fishermen.
