A Turkey villa in Alanya has been the base for beach holidays for over 800 years. Located on the Mediterranean Coast of Turkey, Alanya sits on a beach which stretches for miles around the warm, still waters of the Gulf of Antalya, and boats an enormous wealth of historical attractions, cultural sites and a bustling commercial centre. The welcome you shall receive from the locals, the fine cuisine and huge number of attraction make an Alanya property ideal for family holidays, and the atmosphere and scenery mean Alanya honeymoons are simply unforgettable.
Alanya holiday rentals are in such high demand primarily due to the landscape. Alanya Beach is a glorious stretch of golden sand, where you can happily relax for a whole day, soaking up the sun and taking in the magnificent views of the pine tree covered Taurus Mountains which surrounds the Gulf on all sides. The Gulf of Alanya is a fantastic place to swim, sail or go scuba diving, and there are plenty of diving and water sports centres around the seafront.
There are some wonderful sites of interest in and around Alanya. The 13th century walls of the Seljuk Castle of Alanya are the most obvious attraction on the town’s skyline, but the imposing octagonal Red Tower (Kizik Kule), the mystical ruins of Seljuk village and the local Damlatas Caves are certainly worth a few hours of your time when staying in self catering accommodation in Alanya. The Damlatas Caves, just a little way from an Alanya apartment, are an eerie place to explore, and there are some brilliant boat trips out to three sea caves which used to be the haunts of Mediterranean pirates.
If you are looking for entertainment and excitement during the evenings from an Alanya villa, you are in luck. If you leave your Alanya property rental and head for the harbour, you will quickly find the finest restaurants, most lively bars and best clubs nestling in amongst the side streets of the area.
The provincial capital of the region, Antalya is another city well worth exploring from a Turkey villa in Alanya. Beautifully laid out with tree lined boulevards home to ancient villas and defensive fortresses, Antalya holidays has an unrivalled atmosphere of charm and serenity. This is both a historical treasure chest and a cosmopolitan commercial centre, all rolled into one.
The climate in the area is remarkably steady, meaning if you take accommodation for an Alanya honeymoon or family holiday, one thing you won’t have to think about is the weather. During July and August, temperatures average around 33?C, with midday temperatures sometimes reaching the 40?C mark. Winters conditions are still pretty mild, averaging around 9?C for the month of January, the coldest month.
You can reach accommodation in Alanya within a couple of hours of leaving Antalya Airport (AYT). British Airways and Turkish Airlines both provide frequent flights to Antalya from London, which only take a couple of hours.
