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 at Yalikavak, 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!
