Wide open spaces and cultural appeal in Turkey

It’s hard to beat the diversity of Turkey, a land of vast landscapes, rugged coastlines and vibrant cities. Whether you’re looking for a quiet seaside retreat, a holiday of outdoor excursions or a trip through time, Turkey has plenty of holiday lettings to satisfy your needs.

History

Discover history and culture in Turkey

With a variety of cultural influence and a long history, Turkey has plenty of heritage sites to excite the history buff. Holiday cottages and homes can be found near the Great Mosque and Hospital of Divriği, a structure renowned for its monumental architecture and Anatolian stone carvings, or the Archaeological Site of Troy, the site of the Trojan War with a 4000-year history. Go back even further at the Neolithic Site of Çatalhöyük, one of the earliest known settlement sites of the Neolithic age with ruins of early man. You could also explore the former Silk Road at the Archaeological Site of Ani, a triangular plateau filled with stunning ancient ruins and engravings.

Things to do

Nature, culture and history in Turkey

Turkey offers a wealth of fantastic activities near holiday lettings, no matter what your inclination. The Blue Mosque is an iconic building from the early 17th century, which is great for history buffs, and those looking for rest and relaxation will find it in Pamukkale, a town known for its mineral-rich thermal waters near the ancient Roman spa of Hierapolis. The Topkapi Palace Museum, housed within an opulent 15th-century palace, is filled with Ottomon treasures and artefacts to explore. Hagia Sophia is a must-see as well, due to its immaculate Byzantine mosaics and Ottomon calligraphy found within the church.

Beaches

Sun and surf in Turkey’s beautiful beaches

With many holiday homes available near popular beaches and hidden gems, your perfect seaside holiday awaits. Nature lovers will enjoy İztuzu, a national conservation area with nesting places for turtles and relaxing swims in the warm, shallow waters, or Ölüdeniz, a popular beach for scuba diving and oceanside cocktails in trendy bars. Patara in an interesting beach to visit, due to its seemingly endless coastline and backdrop of ancient ruins, as well as Alaçatı, a fine-sand beach with mineral springs and ideal wind conditions for kite-surfing and sailing.

Family friendly

Family bonding in Turkey

Holiday homes are available throughout the Turkish landscape, ensuring that you and your family have plenty of options for fun, learning and adventure. The kids will love visiting Faruk Yalçın Zoo and Botanic Park, a natural habitat filled with exotic species and colourful plant life, or İzmir Wildlife Park, a naturalistic environment that’s home to over 12,000 animals from different parts of the world. If theme parks are more your style, Jurassic Land is a dinosaur-themed entertainment and education park with life-size dinosaur exhibits, and Space Camp Turkey takes kids on a journey through space technology to educate them about astronomy.

Good for couples

Rekindle your love with a romantic Turkey holiday

With electrifying nightlife, fine dining and a variety of outdoor adventures, Turkey is the perfect spot for a romantic holiday. Holiday cottages in Istanbul put you right in the centre of chic restaurants, outstanding nightclubs and authentic entertainment, such as belly dance or Turkish meyhanes. You can also enjoy alfresco dining overlooking the beautiful Bosphorus, a natural strait lined with trendy restaurants and cafes. If you prefer an active adventure, the mountainous landscape of the Alpine Meadows is ideal for challenging heights, beautiful views and native wildlife viewing.
