Turkey

More than just sun drenched beaches

For many years Turkey has been a prime destination for beaches and summer sun.  And in this it excels.  Luxurious resorts, stunning villas and white sand beaches with aquamarine sea.  But venture inland and you will find incredible landscapes, some of the best preserved historical  ruins in the Mediterranean and fabulous Turkish hospitality and cuisine.  Holidays to Turkey vary from flop and drop beach holidays to grand tours of all the sights.  Perhaps our favourite is a week seeing some of the historical sights followed by a week’s relaxation on the beautiful coast.

7 nights in family friendly resort
