Experience Turkish Delight in tailor made style!
Jules recently visited Istanbul and the Bodrum peninsula courtesy of Visions Holidays Group and Turkish Airlines and experienced some fabulous food, had a day on a luxury yacht and sat in a flight simulator during a behind the scenes visit to the airlines HQ - all in a days work!
I had long wanted to go to Istanbul
and as I thought, loved the cafe culture and history of this vibrant city (see below), but when I heard 'Bodrum' I had visions of stag and hen parties, British pubs and burger bars (my worst nightmare!)..... But I was pleasantly surprised as Bodrum
was actually quite enjoyable (!) and the surrounding peninsula completely beautiful. There are some really swanky yacht harbours such as Palmarina
, home to many lavish restaurants, clubs and hotels, but the town itself has a fabulous traditional market, harbour side tavernas and a range of gorgeous owner run villas just a stone's throw away. In fact throughout Turkey, we have a range of really affordable villas and cottages
, ranging from those that sleep up to 20 people and provide a chef service to tiny cosy villas for couples.
Along the coast to Gumusluk Beach
and is a hidden gem of a small harbour - similar in feel to those Greek islands where the locals meet for long lunches and time seems to stand still as you while away too many hours with a glass of local wine in hand! Above is a photo of the tavernas lit by night with thousands of carved gourds - I've never seen anything like it anywhere in the world it was simply stunning!
