Turkey is defiantly not just for Christmas. However, you may be surprised to know how much biblical stuff went down, in this country of ancient and rugged beauty.
Turkey is often regarded as just another Greece. However, not only does it have its own distinct character, it can also be more cost effective. Our villas are top-notch as always, but the prices can be considerably kinder on your budget. Being outside of the Eurozone, prices for food, wine and clothing are also generally lower.
Price, of course, is no indication of quality. Turkey has a number of stunning ancient sights that make the Greeks very jealous indeed. Ankara, the capital, is covered with Roman ruins and Anatolian mosques. And this is nothing on the mighty Ephesus, which is the grandest and best preserved of the numerous ruins to be found in Turkey. Here you will find one of the Seven Wonders of the World, Ionia's Temple of Diana, jutting out of an enchanting and unspoilt classic Mediterranean city. After recovering from a near fatal bout of awe and breathlessness, head down to Istanbul. This romantic city is dotted with domes and minarets, and its passionate vibes spread throughout the scorching landscape.
There so many other places of interest in Turkey it is impossible to do it justice. The Valley of the Fairy Chimneys in Cappadocia is an 'out-of-this-world' collection of pink volcanic cones; speckled with tunnels and windows that are well worth a look into. On top of Mt Ararat, the one from the 'big book', one can gaze over the clouds into Iran and Turkey. The Lycian Way is perfect for swimming and snorkelling; its impeccable beaches and all year sun make it an obvious choice for a relaxing family break.
