Holidays in Turkey

A vision of Turkey conjurs up ideas of a fusion of east meets west, old and new. Ancient buildings stand alongside modern architechture, swanky shopping malls perch next to traditional bazaars. This country has a rich and fascinating culture and some wonderful natural wonders, plus beautiful landscapes and breathtaking coastline to explore.

Soak up the Mediterranean climate

Turkey’s Mediterranean climate makes it’s the perfect destination for a summer beach, activity and watersports holiday. Late spring and early autumn are a wonderful time of year to visit, soak up warm, dry days and pleasant evenings and with the added advantage of the resorts being a little quieter too. July and August brings long hours of sunshine, it is hotter and more humid so you’ll appreciate the beautiful sea breezes and love the balmy evenings.

Step back in time at Foça

North of Izmir, Foça is formed of two villages, Eski Foça (Old Foça) and Yeni Foça (new Foça). Eski Foça is the larger of the two and is found next to two small bays and a lovely small harbour. Step back in time, soak up the authentic vibe of this small fishing town with some great harbour-side restaurants. Browse around the local shops, selling textiles, leather goods, silver and an abundance of Turkish delicacies, the perfect opportunity to practice your bartering skills. If you fancy seeing Foça from the water, take a boat trip from the harbor and enjoy the stunning coastline.

Ancient wonders of the world

Ephesus, a UNESCO World Heritage Centre is just 83 miles away (1 hour 45 minutes by car) and should not be missed. In the ancient world Ephesus was the centre for travel and commerce, it was a major  Roman port city, positioned on the estuary of the River Kaystros. Excavations have revealed grand monuments of the Roman Imperial period including the Library of Celsus ad the Great Theatre. Many know Ephesus for its famous Temple of Artemis, one of the Seven Wonders of the World, although little remains of the site today.
