Apartment | 2 bedrooms | sleeps 6
Beach front apartment; lazy by day, lively by night; particularly in the peak season.
One of a select few private properties in the area that have uninterrupted panoramic view of the main bay with its backdrop of mountains, islands, boats going in and out of the harbours and marina and the sound of the ripple of the sea splashing along the beach.
Managed by a local English couple who are available during your stay should you need them.
More details on the apartment: The apartment sleeps up to 6 people. There are two bedrooms one with king size bed and one with twin beds and two small bed settees in the lounge. It has marble floors with a bright open plan lounge/diner and kitchen. The kitchen is fully fitted with cooker, large fridge/freezer and water cooler.
The main balcony inevitably becomes the focal point of everybody's stay in the apartment; it is an excellent vantage point to watch the world go by. The property is not overlooked, and gives a combination of sun and shade throughout the day.
The beach immediately to the front of the apartment has Blue Flag status, it is cleaned every day in the summer and has lifeguards. The sea is clear, has no tides and it is perfect for swimming. As guests you may also use the swimming pools and facilities of the neighbouring hotels.
There is good choice of bars and restaurants and shops along the front, side and back of the apartment. There is also a good selection of large supermarkets about 15 minutes walk away or a 2-minute bus ride. The local mini buses (dolmus), which will take you around the area stop close to rear of the apartment block.

The Aegean Coast region
Altinkum is a fun-loving beach resort on Turkey's southwest coast. Altinkum means golden sands and the apartment is adjacent to the magnificent shallow waters of the Aegean Sea. Altinkum by night retains its relaxed informal atmosphere and offers a good choice of restaurants and bars, which makes it an ideal choice for a family holiday.
The Apollo Temple where you can explore the ancient ruins is a short Dolmus ride away. The Apollo Temple is located on the outskirts of Didim. The main temple was built in the 8th century B.C. and was surrounded by columns at the beginning of the 6th century B.C. This temple was finally completed around 550 B.C
There is a Farmers' Market on a Saturday morning – the sights and smells of the wonderful array of fruit, vegetables and spices are amazing. There are also many stalls selling clothing, jewellery and towels, etc., you could spend all day browsing before bartering for the best price.
There is also a Night Market in Mavisehir – a small fishing village about 5 miles from Altinkum – walk around this very busy undercover market and barter for some bargains. Here you can also see the wonderful Turkish sunset whilst having a meal in one of the waterside restaurants.
