This apartment has a host of extra features to make sure that your stay is stress-free and enables you to relax. There are air conditioning units in both bedrooms and the lounge. All windows and doors have insect screens so that you can take advantage of the cooling breeze, whilst avoiding the local insect life!
Each bedroom has its own bathroom - on the lower floor there is a shower cabinet, whilst the master bedroom on the upper floor has a bath with a shower over.
The main balcony (off the lounge) has seating for up to six people and overlooks the shared swimming pool. Sit here with a cold drink and enjoy the wonderful views of the green mountains that surround the village.
On this level is the smaller bedroom with twin beds and plenty of storage and hanging space.
The huge master bedroom (on the upper floor) has a double bed, a big wardrobe, a dressing table and its own small private balcony with sea views.
The upstairs landing has a sofa where you can relax and browse through the selection of books provided for you to enjoy - from local guide books to the usual holiday reading.
The fifth bed can be found in the lounge on the larger of the two sofas, which is a sofabed.
The lounge has plenty of comfortable seating and we have provided a TV and a DVD player, along with a library of classic films and UK TV programmes. There is also a CD player with a selection of music to set the mood!
We have a washing machine for you to rinse through your swimwear and beach towels (laundry materials are provided). There is an airer and an iron/ironing board to keep your holiday wardrobe wrinkle-free.
In the kitchen there is a good sized fridge with a separate freezer compartment, an oven with a four ring gas hob and the usual kettle, toaster etc. You can either enjoy your meals at the table in here or else move outside to the balcony for some al-fresco dining.

The shared pool is a good size and we have four sunbeds for you to use around it. It is usually open from the start of May to the end of October.
A large free standing barbecue stands to the side of the pool and is available for all guests to use during their stay.
There is plenty of parking space available on the road outside the main gates. A paved road takes you to the village centre and the beach, although there is a quicker and more direct route along a partially unpaved road. The area is residential and free from late night noise and disturbance - ideal for families, in other words!

The Turquoise Coast/Lycia region
Turunç village is one of the best kept secrets along the Aegean coast. It is in a stunningly beautiful bay - surrounded on one side by pine forested mountains - and on the other side by the clear blue waters of the Aegean Sea.
The village has been welcoming visitors for the last 15 years and there are many people who return year after year to experience the warmth and hospitality of the Turkish people.
The weather in Turunç is warm and sunny from the end of March until the end of November. In the high summer the temperatures are hot and perfect for sun worshippers. The beach is a mixture of sand and shingle and has a gentle rake, making it ideal for children. The sea is amazingly clear and Turunç is the proud holder of the Blue Flag Award for maintaining and promoting beach and sea cleanliness.
If you wish to be more active than just sunbathing on your holiday, then there are many watersports available along the beach. From water skiing to the banana boat! Lunch can be taken at one of the many beachside restaurants and bars.
Eating out in Turunç is a pleasure when there are so many restaurants to choose from. Many offer traditional Turkish food such as mezes and kebabs, with perhaps some baklava and Turkish coffee to finish! The prices vary with the style of restaurant - from the cheap and cheerful to the more up market and formal. Locally caught fish is aways available on the menu.
The nightlife is based around the bars. Some of these have dancing until the small hours for those with energy after a hard day on the beach.
There are plenty of day trips to visit the surrounding area and boat trips can be taken to explore along the beautiful coast. These can be booked from several of the tour operators on the main street, but our favourite is Green Idyma Travel Agency.
If you feel like some raunchier nightlife then Marmaris and Içmeler are just a 40 minute bus ride away. These bigger towns also have more choice for shopping and bargain hunting amongst the markets.
The wealth of archaeology in Turkey is almost embarrassing with its abundance of Greek, Roman, Lycian, Carian and Ottoman sites. The best known of these is Ephesus (called Efes in Turkey). Day trips to Efes can be booked from Turunç and the trip is usually combined with a visit to the final home of The Virgin Mary.
The small settlement of Amos is near to Turunç and it has a small amphitheatre and a temple to explore (but you'll need good sturdy shoes as it is overgrown). The reward for your perseverance is the wonderful view over the bay out towards Marmaris and Dalyan and of the wide sweeping bay of Kumlubuk to the south.
If ancient history isn't your thing, then there is a small water park in Marmaris which offers a fun family day out. Although to be fair, when we visited last year, the "grown-ups" probably enjoyed it more than the children........! Trips around the Bozburun Peninsula can be taken in a jeep, which gives you the chance to have fun as you watch the scenery go by.
The Holy Muslim month of Ramazan (known as Ramadan in the UK) will be from 21st August to 20th September in 2009. From the 21st September there is a three day period of celebration and feasting, known as Seker Bayram (or Sugar/Sweet Holiday). It is a great time to be in Turkey to experience the renowned Turkish hospitality at its best.
