Make a holiday rental home or apartment in Marmara, Turkey your home away from home

The Marmara region is the smallest of the seven geographical regions of Turkey, but the most densely populated, largely due to the presence of Istanbul, the country’s most populated city. Istanbul offers a huge amount for any visitor, with monumental architecture and fantastic shopping just some of the many draws. The remainder of the region is an eclectic mix of industrial towns, historical cities, unspoilt countryside and picturesque coastal villages, an immense amount of diversity in such a small region.

Things to do in Marmara, Turkey

Whatever the purpose of your holiday, you are sure to be able to find something in the Marmara region of Turkey. Many people choose to start their holiday with a stay in city centre apartment in Istanbul, and discover the delights of the big city before heading outside of its borders.

Much of the surrounding region could not be any more different from the hustle and bustle of Istanbul, with peaceful holiday rental found in the most relaxing of countryside resorts, with swimming, hiking and climbing all to be enjoyed, - with the opportunity of a traditional Turkish bath as your reward at end of the day.

Places to visit on holiday in Marmara, Turkey

Istanbul is the most obvious place in which to start a holiday in the region and few visitors leave here disappointed. The city has two sides to it, a bustling modern European tourist area, with many shopping malls, cafes and bars, and a historic and more traditional Asian area. There are a number of architectural centres to visit, including the Sultanahmet Camii (Blue Mosque) and the Aya Sofya church, as well as the bazaars which the city is famous for.

There are so many other attractions in Istanbul that it is hard to do it justice in such a short space. Needless to say, whether you visit for one week or one month, you will have been unlikely to even scratch the surface during your stay.

Do not make the mistake of only visiting Istanbul during your stay in the Marmara region. The Balikesir Province borders both the Marmara Sea and the Aegean Sea, and is home to a number of holiday towns and beaches, including Akcay, Altinoluk and Ayvalik.

Much of the Marmara region is heavily steeped in industry and agriculture, and heading off the beaten tourist track will allow you to discover an area that is vastly different, with the natural beauty and the National Parks of Edremit Bay, and the important ottoman province of Bilecik just waiting to be discovered.

Weather in Marmara, Turkey

The Marmara region has a temperate climate, with the busiest tourist season (June to September) hot and humid, with average temperatures around 28°C. Winter temperatures drop to around 10°C and snowfall is quite common during this period.

The best method of getting to your accommodation around the Marmara region is to hire a car from your destination airport.

Cevdet, he responded quickly to my request and gave me all the information I need (address, contacts, etc.) I should point out that the pictures of the listing is quite accurate, dare I say even better in real life. The flat is so much spacious than it looks, the private terrace has wonderful sea views probably unbeatable in the city.. lived there for 6 days but I'm sure it would be enough for a longer trip either. The neighborhood is so elite and so glamorous, it was wonderful. The location is tremendous 5 minute to subway station (assuming that you can go everywhere by subway and other linked transportation). I would definitely return, so you should get this; I suggest you should stay here for your visit. Last, we had to arrive at an odd hour, 01:35am!, but host arranged private irport pickup at a very fair rate and driver knew exactly how and where to go and delivered us in a heart beat..Overall great experience.

Our host was most hospitable and met us at a slightly later than expected arrival after 11pm. Much thought and detail has gone into making this home cosy, well furnished and retaining the many original features. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay. A metro station is a 15 min walk away but we also walked into the centre of Istanbul to savour the sights enroute. I highly recommend this for those wishing to see how the local community live in Istanbul. The locals were most welcoming and walking back at night was safe and secure. Try it for yourself if you want to savour the real Istanbul.

The appartment is just perfect : right next to the Blue mosque, you can hear the fine voice of its muezzin 5 times a day. The terraces are very wide but we were not able to use them because of the weather ! The flat is very nicely decorated, well furnished and the bed just perfect. Halide was very nice and helpful. The transfer to the airport was very well organised. It is very quiet at night. Istanbul is so interestingand the population very helpful. Such a friendly country !
