The Aegean Region in western Turkey is one of the most visited in the whole of the country and as a result there are plenty of small, beautiful resorts popping up. To enjoy some rest and relaxation away from the crowds an Altinkum holiday is the perfect choice. The town is small and away from the masses but is still close enough to enjoy all of the sights and sounds of traditional Turkey. Far from being old and shabby, an Altinkum holiday rental villa is modern and stylish with all of the comforts of home.
The translation of Altinkum means “Golden sands” so you can be sure that there are several great beaches in the town where visitors can enjoy water-based activities such as swimming, diving, windsurfing, water skiing, sailing and snorkelling. Other activities available on an Altinkum holiday include cycling, fishing, paragliding and walking. Visitors can also take in a slice of ancient history in the town as Altinkum is home to the ruins of the Apollo Temple which is thought to date back to around 600 B.C., if not earlier.
If you can tear yourself away from the beach and your comfortable Altinkum holiday rental villa then it is recommended that you head for the city of Aydin which is just under two hours away from the town. Amongst the attractions worth seeing in Aydin are the Roman ruins of Tralles which includes a theatre and gymnasium, as well as the Aydin Museum, filled with great exhibits of coins, archaeological finds and detailed ethnographic information on the older civilisations which inhabited the area.
We all like to have wonderful weather on our holidays and so you will be pleased to hear that if you book an Altinkum holiday rental villa you can expect to enjoy very hot summers and mild winters. July and August are usually the warmest months of the year, which sees visitors relaxing in temperatures of a maximum of 33°C. The winter months of January and February see the daytime temperature drop to anywhere between 17°C and 23°C. The annual rainfall amount for the resort is 14 inches.
Travellers on an Altinkum holiday can start their wonderful trip by arriving at Bodrum Airport (BJV) which is approximately 54 miles away from the resort. Amongst the air operators offering regular, affordable fights to the area are easyJet, Thomson Flights, Jet2 and Monarch Airlines.
