Cottages in Turkey: for a varied holiday
Turkey has beautiful beaches, azure blue seas, ancient ruins, good cuisine, and very hospitable people. Turkey offers a wide range of scenery, people, cultural historical ruins and natural beauty. Thanks to its historic past, which goes back to one of the worlds earliest civilisations, Turkey boasts a wealth of historic sights, ruins, ancient cities, and museums full of art treasures.
Discover Turkey's history
Not far from Izmir, Turkeys third largest city, you can admire the classical city of Ephesus. This city dates back to the 14th century and here you can visit old bath houses (Hammans), arenas, and its famous library. There are innumerable beautiful day trips to make from your holiday cottage. You can visit historic mausoleums in various places around Turkey. North of Ephesus, you will find the temple ruins in Pergamon. Other well-known historic remains include those in Perge and the theatre of Aspendos. When you take a boat tour across the magnificent swamps of Dalyan, you will see the historic mythical royal rock tombs, high above the water. And be amazed by the mysterious moonscape of Cappadoccia.
However, Turkey also has many places where time has not stood still. Here, you will also find one of the worlds busiest cities, Istanbul. A city with views across two different continents and the Bosphorus - one of the worlds busiest waterways and of course the proud owner of the most beautiful mosques and palaces, including the world famous Agia Sofia.
Discover the diversity of the country from your cottage in Turkey
Turkey has 8,000 km of coastline. Many holiday homes are situated in direct proximity of gorgeous beaches. Bodrum has the Gümbet and Bitez beaches, Marmaris has the beach of Datca, and the bays of Öldeniz (also known as the Blue Lagoon) and Belcegiz are attractive destinations from Fethiye.
Experience the hospitality of the Turkish people and be surprised by their culture, the wonderful climate, and the countrys diversity! Tip: Visit one of the local traditional markets. You are never far from a traditional market selling herbs, spices, goats, and multi-coloured peppers. It feels as if time has stood still for centuries, here. Bring a Turkish cook book from home, buy the ingredients locally and rustle up a great meal in your holiday cottage.
