Luxury Holidays in Turkey
Located where Europe and Asia meet and hovering over the tip of Africa, Turkey has a uniquely varying landscape, from plains and mountains to beaches, bays and caves. Saturated with history and sun-soaked daily, Turkey is the ideal destination for culture and sun-seekers alike.
Sat where three continents meet, Turkey is well known for Turkish baths, bazaars and belly dancing, but there is more to Turkey than you might think. From the welcoming hospitality and local cuisine to sandy beaches and clear waters as well as a nightlife worth mentioning, Turkey has everything you could want from a foreign holiday.
For those looking for a laid-back beach holiday, Turkey boasts an impressive 383 Blue Flag beaches, from the Turquoise Coast in the southwest where the Mediterranean climate combines with natural and archaeological wonders along a thousand kilometres of Aegean and Mediterranean sea to the chic Bodrum peninsula with its European feel, fishing villages and fashionable nightclubs.
Split into 7 regions, Marmara, Black Sea Coast, Eastern Anatolian, Central Anatolian, Mediterranean and Aegean. The climate of each region varies due to the location, with some areas mountainous and others coastal. With a Mediterranean climate along the Mediterranean, Aegean and Marmara coasts, Turkey is blessed with long hot summers, ranging from 21oC in the spring to 33 oC throughout July and August. Those preferring a milder temperature and quieter beaches can still enjoy temperatures of 26-31 oC throughout September and October. The east of Turkey is a mountainous area and has a climate similar to Europe with warm summers and cooler winters.
For the traveller who likes to delve into local history, Turkey has lots to offer – from two of the Seven Wonders of the World to a sunken Roman city! Visit the Byzantine battlegrounds, the ancient city of Perge, the Lycian tombs of Myra and the ruined city of Ephesus or experience Turkish culture the relaxing way by booking yourself a session at a traditional Turkish bath.
