Kalkan village accommodation, Turkey
Deborah is a fine host with a wonderful cottage set in a beautiful location abounding with lovely, friendly animals. A perfect getaway and base to explore this stunning part of Lycia. (more)JOHN COLGAN
The most memorable part of the holiday was seeing the cottage for the first time as it was so much nicer than we had even hoped for! (more)Portia Dunmore
The most memorable part was the accommodation's location. It was great to be up in a little village, very peaceful, away from the pre-season warm up mode of Kalkan and surrounded by locals. (more)Amy Hill
From £350 - £450 per week (sleeps 2-4)
Self guided walking holiday in Turkey
Memorable parts? Lurkey Turkey! The stand out stay of the menagerie of dogs, cats, ducks, chickens, etc. lurkey was also the not so proud father of approx 9 hatchlings just before we left. The views, the ambience and the rushing streams of water, the locals, the fish restaurants, etc. and the library of books....... Tips? The Lycian way is a couple of very steep Kms away so not really an option unless you have a car. Deborah did offer to drive us and pick us up as she did for our... (more)Trish Wyeth

Lycian way walking holiday
Just amazing and everyone should do this trip!! We arrived home early hours this morning, tired and in love with Turkey. (more)Chris Smith
Superb....The finale - arriving at the ruins of SIDYMA was the most memorable part (more)Geoffrey Crill
From £450 excluding flights
Gulet cruises in Turkey
A very enjoyable holiday - great to be outdoors all the time in the warmth and in the breeze when motoring. Really relaxing as no bother about what to wear - it's your swimmers, or where or what to eat as the choices are all made for you. (more)Jacqueline Hollister
This was a holiday which was active and relaxing all at once. Perfect for teenagers who get bored sitting round a pool, and parents who like to explore but with minimum stress. We loved it. (more)Cherry Noble
It was nice to spend time on the boat with nice people, beautiful bays to swim, good food and some interesting archaeological sites. (more)Arianna Rebeschini
From £885 including UK flights
Family holiday for teenagers to Turkey
Nice and laid back as everything was organised for us, great selection of activities and a superb guide with excellent local knowledge. (more)Helen Williams
The trip was well organised. Staff were helpful at booking stage. We enjoyed all activities (scuba diving, jeep drive to gorge and sea kayaking) and loved our time on the gullet. (more)Elke Hein
5 star - fantastic! (more)Lisa Rawlings
From £860 - £1170 including UK flights
Faralya boutique hotel, near Oludeniz
Memorable parts? A small boat trip on the turquoise coast and watching the sun set every night from our balcony. Small compact and bijou with some much fruit and veg locally produced and good (if repetitive) food. Also very much enjoyed exploring some of the many ancient ruined cities. Tips? There are more bees than you can imagine so those with a sting allergy be aware, there must be 40,000 hives in this area of Turkey which is the major honey producing area! We had no problems...

Lycian activity holiday
Fantastic! The down hill cycling was a lot of fun and they allowed you to go as fast as you liked and I like to go fast! They created a nice atmosphere within the group and we soon all gelled and had a lot of fun! (more)Saul Greenland
Every thing was amazing. I had one of the best holidays ever. The different activities showed different sides of Turkey you wouldn't normally see on a 'normal' holiday! (more)Ash Smith
We had a day of canyoning in the mountains of Kas and it was amazing - huge adrenaline rushes and great bonding with the rest of the group. (more)Tess Stackley
From £899 including UK flights
Villa holiday in Kas, Turkey
Very good and hugely relaxing...the most memorable part was diving off the rocks into the sea first thing each morning and the views from the bedroom windows across the sea. (more)anna bradley
A Fabulous rest in a beautiful setting, but still always something to do if you wanted. (more)jane edwards
We rented a house so the most memorable part was arriving and finding a lovely place that was ours for a week. The house is very well equipped, comfortable, with a beautiful garden, access to the sea and a nice (shared) swimming pool. (more)Elizabeth Caird
From £500 - £1250 per villa per week
Lycian Way walking tour in Turkey
Memorable parts? The campsite the night before climbing Mt Olympus, with its beautiful location. Tips? Be prepared for some undulating and fairly sweaty walking. The terrain is fairly consistently pine forestry; it isn’t all coastal views as you might expect. All around a nice slice of Turkey, with the rest day in an idyllic location at the beach on Cirali. Local benefits? I really enjoyed getting to know the guides. However there was not too much interaction with other local... (more)Holly Hutton
From £799 including UK flights
Family sailing holiday in Turkey
We all enjoyed traveling on the gullet and being with the other families. We had great fun snorkeling each day. (more)Sarah Nicholas
Skocjan caves was amazing, but we also really enjoyed the experience of kayaking and rafting down the river, the scenery was so beautiful and we had never done that before. (more)Suzanne Rogers
From £999 including UK flights
Turkey self catering accommodation
The whole atmosphere of the accommodation is amazing. You are up on a high plateau, away from the noise and bustle, in a wonderful microcosm. Anthea and Bob are extremely helpful - very knowledgeable about the area and they go out of their way to make your stay enjoyable. (more)Sophie Witter
The farm is one of the most peaceful, beautiful and relaxing places we have ever been to. Anthea and Bob are very friendly, informative and helpful hosts. (more)Mike Cushman
The owners are wonderful hosts, the cottages and surrounds are gorgeous, and it is an extremely attractive and hospitable part of the world. (more)Zoe Bell
From £250 - £380 per week
Antalya family friendly hotel in Turkey
fantastic, one of the best we've had in a long time. 4.5 out of 5 (more)Spike McCullagh
The most memorable part was seeing the interesting sites around Olympus and bathing in sheltered inlets when on a boat trip. (more)Georgina Houston
From €180 - €190 per person per week
Kalkan accommodation, Turkey
Very good - lots of great memories to keep us going until our next adventure. Pauline is a mine of useful information which allowed us to see things the Turkish way. (more)Pete Weisner
This is a wonderful place, very tranquil and relaxing, unless you dislike country sounds (cockerels crowing, goats bleating and of course the hooting of owls at night!). We absolutely loved it and think anyone with a soul would do so too! (more)Lynne Evans
The friendly people that we met were the highlight. We felt that we had made new friends by the time that we left. We learnt a lot more about the country than we would have done staying in more touristy hotels. (more)Melinda Cresser
From TRY95 per person per night incl breakfast
