Things to do from your villa in Turkey

-Beaches. Turkey boasts more than 350 beaches that meet international Blue Flag standards for environmental and tourism factors, almost all of which are spread along the Aegean and Mediterranean coasts. Especially worth seeking out is the craggy coastline southeast of Bodrum, at locations like Hisaronu and Bozborum with their unfrequented sandy coves.

-Ancient history. Thanks to its location, at the confluence of civilisations, Turkey is blessed with a wealth of ancient remnants. In the Aegean and Mediterranean regions there are numerous Ancient Greek and Roman sites, like Pamukkale, or the city of Ephesus in the Izmir Province, which boasts elements from both cultures and was once among the largest cities in the Mediterranean. .

-Watersports. The warm, sheltered waters around large portions of the Aegean and Mediterranean coasts make Turkey a fantastic option for water sports. Sea kayaking is an unforgettable way to experience the coastline, while at major destinations such as Bodrum you’ll find centers offering activities like motor-boating, jet-skiing, windsurfing and water-skiing.

-Istanbul. An energetic and attractive link between Europe and Asia, Istanbul offers historical sites and landmarks from a range of cultures, as well as fabulous museums and markets. Essential attractions in the UNESCO protected historic areas, are the Hagia Sofia, which is a basilica turned mosque turned museum, dating to the 4th Century and the spectacular Sultanahmet Mosque.

-Natural scenery. In Turkey’s inland Cappadocia region you could visit the otherworldly Göreme National Park, which is famed for its strange, chimney-like natural rock formations. In southern Marmara there’s the Uludag National Park, a large expanse of breathtaking pine forest-covered mountains, drawing winter sports enthusiasts in the colder months.

Weather in Turkey

Covering a vast area, and with varied topography, the country has a number of very different climates; however, around beach apartments in Turkey, in Izmir and Antalya, on the Aegean and Mediterranean respectively, you can expect typical Mediterranean weather, with warm summers and mild winters. Here daily highs reach above 20 degrees by April, with the warm weather lasting through to as late as October. July and August bring maximum temperatures that get well into the 30s. Winters are cooler and damper, with highs in the early-teens in January. In Istanbul, in the Marmara region, temperatures are marginally cooler than in Antalya and Izmir.

Travelling to your villa or apartment in Turkey

International airports serving Turkey’s main tourist regions include Sabiha Gökçen (SAW) and Atatürk (IST) in Istanbul, and from west to east on the Aegean and Mediterranean there’s Adnan Menderes (ADB) in Izmir, Milas-Bodrum (BJV) and Dalaman (DLM) in Mugla, while the city of Antalya (AYT) also has an international airport. Most visitors to Turkey tend to hire a car or catch dolmus taxis. Still, private bus companies provide links between large towns and cities, and there’s also a sophisticated rail system. There are also light railways and underground networks in the cities of Izmir and Istanbul.
