Islamlar is a beautiful, quiet village hidden in the foothills of the Toros mountain range on Turkey’s ultra-desirable Lycian Coast. Unspoilt by mass tourism, this pretty little village provides a snapshot of authentic Turkish life.
2020 is here and it’s time to start thinking about all those wonderful places you want to visit in the new decade. If you’re looking for top-quality, self-catering accommodation in some stunning, off-the-beaten-track location in Europe, take a look at the following three fabulous Vintage Travel villas that are new to our 2020 programme.
Vintage Travel has added a fabulous villa to our Turkish programme. ‘Loft’ is located a two-bedroom, two-bathroom villa with an indoor pool that’s located in the village of Islamar, approximately 15 minutes from the chic coastal town of Kalkan.
Vintage Travel is thrilled to have added White Moon to our program of villas in Turkey. This four-bedroom villa can sleep eight and is a mere 500 metre-walk from a beautiful beach and just 15-minutes from the chic yet traditional seaside village of Kalkan.
A truly spectacular coastline in Turkey, the Lycian Coast is not your average stretch of sand and water. While certainly a refuge for travellers looking for simple and tranquil sand and surf, the Lycian Coast is loaded with so much more to see and marvel at.
Scattered in picturesque harbour towns like Kas and Kalkan, woven between idyllic coves backed with breathtakingly beautiful gorges, plunging green valleys and dominant mountains, Turkey’s Lycian Coast is a truly beautiful part of the world and the perfect place for a ‘get away from it all’ holiday.
Kekova is a tiny island that that lies near the Lycian town of Demre in the beautiful Antalya province of Turkey. Deriving from the word for thyme in Turkish, Kekova is a distinctly fragrant island, the perfect place to relax, unwind and take in the natural beauty this part of Turkey is blessed with.
With its fine beaches lapped with cobalt waves, backed by a mountainous landscape and upmarket fishing villages, it’s not difficult to understand why Turkey’s southwestern shoreline is labelled the ‘Turquoise Coast.’
Small, charismatic, quiet, authentic and friendly, it is easy to fall in love with Kalkan on the stunning Turquoise Coast in Turkey.
If you think of a bazaar as small, think again, as the Grand Bazaar in Istanbul has over 4000 stalls, and sometimes over a quarter of a million visitors daily! Shopping here is an incredible experience, this place is nuts! It’s not just buying, but bargaining and chatting with sellers that make the experience so special
