Sorry if this repeats much of what has been said before but if like me you do your homework on villa holidays you will know that you cannot hear the important stuff too often...and the more recent the better.
If you haven't tried this type of holiday before I can imagine it could seem scary, there isn't someone to collect you and chauffeur you around and you don't have that holiday rep looking after your every move, but do not fret.
The directions provided by Martin & Jennie really are perfect, they even provide pictures of the junctions and turns you make from the airport to the villa turning it into a very straight-forward journey (about 40 minutes from Antalya). Hire care is extremely good value and is an absolute must-have for this property.
When you arrive at the villa you really won't believe just how good you've done, your research will have paid off and you will realise you've got a bargain (I really hope that doesn't encourage the owners to put the price up for future visits I intend to make!)
Local shops do stock the essentials and a very short drive will get you to either Belek or Sirik where you will find the larger markets and supermarkets, to be honest the best thing is getting the fruit and veg from the locals though.
The villa has everything you could need and the pool area will make you want to spend your days and evenings there rather than actually venturing far but if you have come to sight-see then the welcome pack explains all the must-sees in the area.
My top tip is to learn or at least attempt 2 or 3 Turkish words, it really will get you a long way if you try to say hello, please and thank you.
Terrific holiday and can't wait to return.
My family and I spend 2 weeks there in April 2009. we had awesome time. Very comfortable accomodation, pleasant mild weather
20 minutes walk to a publick beach, 20 minutes walk to center of Belek, pleanty opportunities to travel around to see historical locations.
