Turkish Delights

Turkey is a fascinating country straddling both Asia and Europe offering a fantastic mix of east and west. It is a spectacular, vast country and a popular choice for British travellers looking for a wonderful climate and glorious beaches not too far from home.

It is not surprising that Turkey has become a holiday hot spot again this summer as this intriguing country, where archaeological sites merge with the natural beauty of the scenery, is no more spectacular than around the Bodrum area on the Aegean Coast and it is here that our Travel Partner, Travelpack, feature some beautiful 4 & 5* hotels for you to relax and enjoy all this area has to offer.

The Bodrum peninsula has nearly 200km of coastline, more than 30 delightful islands and a plethora of ancient archaeological sites.There are quiet bays, secluded coves, glorious golden sand and pebble beaches with beach resorts ranging from the trendy and bustling to the tranquil and traditional.

Located about 6km from Bodrum you will find Torba a welcome escape from the summer madness of Bodrum town centre.  Off-season it is a sleepy hamlet but transforms in the summer to a more bustling destination and is an interesting destination with a  long history, going back to the Leleg era and you can still see the remains of an old Lelegian tomb on a hill overlooking the village, as well as the ruins of an old monastery to the eastern end of the bay.  Located in a secluded bay with a small pebble beach you will find traditional restaurants serving delicious seafood and authentic mezze.

The 4* Zeytinada Hotel is a five minutes walk from the beach, set on the hillside overlooking Torba Bay in a flowered garden full of olive tress.  It features modern accommodation with good facilities including an extensive spa and two outdoor pools.
