The Turquoise Coast/Lycia region
The region is next to the Agean Sea and temperatures are consistently high from May until October. There is plenty to do in the area. For those who enjoy historical places of interest and local culture you can visit the ancient city of Ephesus, the royal rock tombs at Dalyan, the temple of Apollo at Didim or the spa pools at Pamukkale or even take a short 40 minute boat trip to the Greek island of Kos.
For those who would rather relax by the pool or sea you are pretty much guaranteed good weather during the long summer season. For those looking for an activity holiday why not try mountain biking, water sports, diving or sailing?
For the children there is an excellent Water Park just 15 minutes drive away and lots of excellent beaches nearby!
The smart Marina town of Yalikavak is about 5km from the apartment which you can either drive to, take a taxi or use the local dolmus (bus). The town offers an excellent range of restaurants, bars and lots of traditional shops. If you like fresh seafood the local restaurants are a must.
The area has many beaches and beach clubs to choose from. Once a week on a Thursday there is a famous market in Yalikavak which is well worth a visit and you can pick up some great bargains,especially clothes, and locally produced fruit and veg. An even larger market is held in nearby Turgutreis on Saturdays.
The new Yalikavak marina also provides an ideal location for an evening meal by the sea in the most relaxing of settings. A highlight for most people who visit Turkey is an all day boat trip which takes you round the various bays so you can jump in the sea or you can relax on the boat with a drink and enjoy the lunch provided.
Only 20 minutes away you will find yourself in the livelier town of Bodrum with a large choice of bars, clubs and restaurants. There is also a wide range of shops with great bargains.

"A fabulous apartment, which is well equiped and has stunning views."
This apartment probably has one of the best views on the complex. Only a couple of the penthouses have a more 'all around' view. I spent 3 weeks here, my mum who is 72 came for one week befo… More

Clean, well appointed apartment but the weather was so great that we spent at least 12 hours a day outdoors - either on the balcony, by the pool or out and about. Tony's information pack was invaluable, particularly the restaurant section and he couldn't have been more helpful with the tips and advice he gave before the holiday. Although the photographs on the website show the views, they do not prepare you for how stunning they are when you are actually there. I shall definitely be booking again.

"Delightful appartment with stunning views"
The appartment is clean and well-furnished in a beautiful location and offers stunning views on all sides. The facilities are great - everything you could need for a relaxing holiday. The tips about the local buses and places to eat were very useful, particularly for a short stay when time to explore is limited. We will definitely holiday there again.
