The Aegean Coast region
There are excellent beach facilities at Altinkum on any of the resorts 3 great beaches. The name Altinkum itself means golden sands. We are nearest the second beach (15 minute walk) which has watersports and pedaloes. Sunbeds and umbrellas are available for hire and there is large choice of bars and restaurants nearby.
Altinkum is close to many fascinating historic sights. In the nearby resort of Didum is the temple of Apollo where the famous snake-adorned head of Medusa stands. A longer daytrip can take you to Ephesis, the best reserved classical Roman City.
Also Visit Dalyman and Turtle Bay. Watch the baby turtles scurry to the sea. The National Park is 20 minutes drive away with spectacular scenary.Near Altinkum's 3rd beach there is a ranch where horse safari trips can be offered. There is also scuba diving and boat trips galore.

This was our second holiday to these villas and, as before, we had a great time. The first time we went it was just ourselves and the kids but when the opportunity came up to have a holiday with our extended family we took the whole complex.
The villas are just on the edge of the town. On two sides they overlook an olive grove with the mountains in the distance and the others look towards the town itself. A well stocked small shop is about 10 minutes walk away and my parents in law, who are in their 70s, walked down every morning for fresh bread. When we stocked up at the beginning, or bought more than we could carry, the shopkeeper delivered it for us.
The main town with its nightlife, bars, restaurants and beaches is about another 10 minutes walk on from the local shop, as is the bus stop. Buses are frequent and very cheap. They go along the coast road which is good for exploring other beaches and you can't get lost as the bus just goes along the coast one way and back the other.
We were surprised at the review saying a car is necessary here as this isn't our experience. A useful tip, something the woman who owns the villas told us, is that most of the restaurants in town will take you home at the end of the evening if you ask them. We felt a bit cheeky asking at first but apparently it's quite common and they're happy to do it to get the custom.
The owner leaves some useful info in the villas to read when you get there but we got more just by talking to her and emailing her before we went. She seems to have spent quite a bit of time there herself and she gave us ideas of where to go and what to do. When we got home she contacted us to ask how we got on and our deposit was refunded within a week.

A rental car (possibly with sat-nav or a map of Didim) is recommended for the location of this property. Corner shops are about a mile away but since this is a self-catering holiday larger food shopping is probably best done in supermarkets (Carrefour or Tansas) downtown on Ataturk Boulevard or area, which is several miles away.
A hospital and pharmacy were also driving distance away on the way, which was good to know.
A car can also prove useful as there are many (more than 8?) blueflag beaches/ bays surrounding Didim/ Altinkum. Go to a different sandy beach every day! The seawater is very clean in this area and not deep, which was encouraging since we had two children with us (aged 6 and 9).
We alternated beach visits with stays at the property with its compact pool, which was sufficient for us as we don't swim laps anyway. Two of the 4 properties were vacant on our arrival which allowed us to spread out around the pool more comfortably.
In the evenings we've driven downtown were the usual loud cocktail bars can be found, few classier clubs are also available but we have not been in any. We have though enjoyed visits to the small fair ground with it's dodgem cars & co.... Generally Didim seemed a little low key and lots of people say it's yet not as developed as maybe Bodrum or Marmaris.
We experienced 5-star-hotel holidays in Turkey in previous years, hardly left the resort and enjoyed it..... But this holiday, staying in a large house, slightly rural was enjoyable in a different way. It was more about bringing few generations of the family together (like Christmas). I'd recommend to bring along electronic equipment for games or karaoke, or board games. At the property there is a large screen TV with satelite. The aerial guys can be called in to set it to your language/ channel preference.
Good to know: The person who looks after the pool every day and Mr Burak who does the key-handover speak English.
