Villa Taurus has a spectacular setting, nestling on the side of a mountain with views across the valley to Alanya- particularly beautiful at night with the castle lit brightly and the many coloured lights along the habour reflecting along the shoreline.
The villa itself is luxuriously furnished with high quality fittings and fixtures and was immaculately clean as was the pool area due to Glenn and Heather who not only maintained the villa to a very high standard but were so friendly and helpful and always a mine of information about places to eat and visit.
One of our favourites was the Oba Bistro - a great range of food, beautifully presented
by very friendly staff and immaculately clean.
There are many wonderful places to see and the castle is well worth a visit - but be warned if you intend to go on foot it is a long and rather steep climb ( local taxis
will take you for a few lira ) and again the views are stunning.
A stroll along the harbour will take you past the many sailing boats for hire and the numerous restaurants that line the harbourside. We opted for a meal on a floating restaurant and enjoyed a taste of the local cuisine including a wonderful spiced fish creation that apparently had no name but was served regularly.
Shopping in Alanya is a great experience and varies from the very cosmopolitan main street that runs parallel to the beach road to the huge market held every Monday in Oba and a pure joy to wander around with a vast array of produce.
Villa Taurus is about only 20 minutes by car to Alanya/Oba but the perfect place to chill out if you like a secluded holiday. The pool area is particularly inviting with a superb covered dining area, traditional b.b.q., and extremely comfortable poolside furniture and that stunning view.
Having visited many countries always staying villas, I can honestly say that this was by far the best and we look forward to our return trip with great anticipation. …
Duggan Serviced Apartments for families
My stay at the Aliye residence was very enjoyable. It is conveniently located in a quiet surburb of Oba, yet close to the beautiful beach (5 min walk), and to a wide choice of local restaurants, bars and entertainment spots and local bus service into Alanya (10 minute journey). The standard of cleanliness was excellent, the service courteous and friendly and so helpful. I was made to feel very welcome and looked after by the host. As a solo traveller I felt very comfortable making my way around thanks to the wonderful hospitality and warmth of the local folks. I wholeheartedly recommend this place to anyone looking for a great self-catering holiday experience. …
Good quality for less money
I stayed with my husband,son and cousin in Lisa Beal's Gür Sitesi. We're from Holland and the owner of the property did everything to make the booking easy for me.
It's a beautiful, modern and clean apartment on the ground floor. The apartment has two bedrooms, a bathroom, a balcony and a kitchen. Big enough for 4 persons. The apartment is nice situated, nearby the swimmingpool, which one is reasonable big.
The beach is nearby and the busstop to the center is not far from the apartment.
Because we enjoyed our stay so much and we're very pleased with the apartment, we've decided to rent the apartment this year again for two weeks.
Highly recommended! …
