About our home

This is not the the usual kind of Turkish holiday apartment !

It is very spacious ,characterful and luxurious,its marble floors being covered with Persian and Turkish rugs (even on the main dining and sitting balcony)There are original artworks in the walls ,and a wide selection of books and maps about Turkey (as well as novels) and lots of CDs and DVDs ;and audio equipment for playing your Ipod

.There is good internet coverage with an internet radio to stay in touch with your home radio stations ;and English language TV via satellite

The flat is both centrally heated (though winters are very mild)and air conditioned for the heat of summer, when much of your time will be spent on the large flower-filled terrace.
The Mediterranean is 300m in one direction and the lovely Taurus Mountains. about 3 km in the other.

There is a large communal pool with a big flume and plenty of sunbeds and parasols;as well as a gym,a sauna,a childrens play area and a library and games room indoors

There is secure free parking on site and many good shops and supermarkets within easy walking distance, selling excellent meat and fish to barbecue on the terrace or by the pool..and excellent Turkish wines, all at prices which seem very cheap to Western Europeans.

If you like to travel light , there is certainly no need to bring cosmetics and toiletries : they are all here at low prices.!There is a good pharmacy within a 7 minute walk.

The apartment is well-equipped for very young children ,with both a highchair and a collapsible cot;and the pool and secure indoor and outdoor play areas are endlessly popular with older children ..to give you some time to yourselves !
And above all it is safe and secure:a calm and peaceful place for a worry free vacation!
