The pool is a minimum depth of 1.8 metres throughout and is therefore unsuitable for unsupervised non swimmers. To facilitate an uninterrupted view of the bay there is no railing surrounding it and there is a 2 metre drop on the outside. It is therefore advisable for young children to be supervised at all times.
Most amenities, including supermarkets, are only a few minutes walk away. On the ground floor there is a shared swimming pool and elevated terrace with sun loungers. There is also a shared garage. This is the ideal spot for either a comfortable, relaxing break or an active adventure holiday.

The Turquoise Coast/Lycia region
This is a majestic rugged coastline offering numerous secluded bays and sheltered coves, many of which are only accessible by boat. The area is backed by the towering Taurus Mountains some of which run straight down to the clear blue waters edge.This has created a double benefit for the area.
The coastline is protected from the prevailing northerly winds making the climate extremely benign and past difficulties in building modern highways has precluded the development of mass tourism. This does not mean there is little to do,adventure pursuits abound. For the more leisurely inclined, apart from the local beaches, there is Patara, voted one of the top ten in the world by the Sunday Times and the Lycian Way, one of the top ten walks, passes right through Kas.
Those interested in archaeology will find numerous sites. Patara, Demre, Myra, the Xantos Valley are all within easy reach. The sunken city at Kekova is probably best visited by boat. The region enjoys an average of 300 days sunshine per year.
Day-time winter temperatures range from 15-20'C whereas in July and August it can reach the high 30's. In summer and autumn the water is a balmy 25'C.
Kas is an attractive traditional Turkish town curled around its ancient harbour. It has developed from the remains of Antiphellos and there are still numerous Lycian and Helenistic artefacts in the area. The mountains behind the harbour are peppered with rock tombs and there is a largely complete amphitheatre on the outskirts of the town.
Kas (which means eyebrow in Turkish) looks out over a large bay which curves around the Greek island of Meis, the whole area is a natural haven for the numerous passing yachts and gillets. Narrow limestone paved streets lined with quaint little houses and colourful shops radiate out from the harbour, positively enticing the visitor to go exploring.Bougainvillea and aromatic fruit trees are everywhere.
There are numerous vendors, from little bazaars selling local produce to trendy boutiques selling more luxurious items in fact something for everyone. The town has a sophisticated slightly bohemian air which makes it very attractive to the cosmopolitan tourists.In the evenings the cafes and restaurants come to life offering a huge range of traditional food and Turkish specialities, the sea-food is of course outstanding. There are numerous bars and a sprinkling of nightclubs for the more lively guests.
Several organisations run adventure activities, canyoning, canoeing, fishing, mountain biking, mountain trekking, paragliding, scuba diving, water ski-ing and white water rafting. The area is world renowned for scuba-diving in particular and novices are made very welcome.The harbour abounds with commercial boats offering ferry or private hire to the numerous local attractions.
