Standing at the cross-roads of Europe and Asia. Turkey is a country of stark contrasts, a country that encompasses the new, without casting off the old.
It has everything from big bustling Cities to vast open countryside. From warm sandy beaches to snow capped mountains. Here are some facts you may wish to know about Turkey.
Many of the best resorts can be found stretching along the Aegean Coastline from Izmir and spreading South along the Turquoise coast as far as Olu Deniz. Along the way you will pass through towns like Kusadasi, Bodrum and Marmaris – once small fishing villages, now sophisticated resorts, to the small less commercial resorts of Altinkum, Bitez and Olu Deniz.
Turkey and its resorts have a mix of everything, from water sports to a variety of boat trips, where serving up a superb BBQ is common place. Lie in the sun and top up your tan, visit one of the many ancient sites or stroll around the shops and bazaars. Eat and drink from a wide variety of european or local dishes, using many of the fresh fruit and vegetables grown within in this vast country, then finish off with the local tipple Raki.
With its warm sunny climate, good food, plenty to occupy your time and the friendliness of the people – what else do you need for that perfect holiday or home in the sun?
