Travelling to Turkey

Flights can be arranged for you, if you wish, or you may prefer to make your own arrangements. Dalaman airport is within 30 minutes and the new international terminal is now open. This is the largest airport in the region and is accessible from most regional UK airports - including Bristol, Birmingham, Manchester, Glasgow, Cardiff and Exeter. The Internet now makes it easy to find and compare good flight times and competitive prices. I would recommend typing in cheap flights to Dalaman, followed by your local airport name. Also try www.thomsonfly.com, www.flythomascook.com www.xl.com or www.travelrepublic.co.uk among others.

Transfers can be arranged for our guests at a very reasonable cost. Taxis are available from the airport, or transfers can be organised in advance, at a cost of approximately £30 to £35 each way.

Car hire can also be arranged at reasonable rates for guests who wish to tour Turkey and explore the beautiful interior with its historic and archaeological sites. This is not essential as there are good local tour companies offering many excursions. Public transport is in the form of local minibuses, the Dolmus, which runs frequently and can be hailed down anywhere along their fixed routes. These are incredibly cheap. Taxis are readily available. We supply two bikes for you to use and extra bikes can be hired locally. This area is flat and cycling is a pleasant way to get around. The coast road to Fethiye is traffic free so this is an especially nice ride.




The Turks are deservedly famous for their warmth, hospitality and the generosity of their welcome.

The cost of living is low, the quality of fresh, local food is very high and the Turkish wine and beer excellent. When eating out, there is a huge variety of reasonably priced food on offer to satisfy either the most simple or sophisticated palate.

 

 

Climate

Calis has a very mild, sunny climate. The rains that come in January and February provide a welcome change from cloudless skies. Even at night, temperatures in winter rarely drop below 10 degrees centigrade.

Away from the coast and up into the mountains, temperatures are lower and for a large part of the year snow capped mountains provide a beautiful backdrop.

Average daytime temperatures and typical weather conditions are given in this table.

Reviews

'Our week at Villa Diana was great. We arrived at the Villa at night and we thought the gardens around the pool looked especially pretty as they were all lit up. We found the villa to be immaculate and had everything we needed. Best of all we loved the big pool. It was just right for swimming lengths and the water was always clear and inviting.'


'It is so gorgeous at your villa, the location is beautiful and central for everything, and the villa is very tastefully decorated. Most days we have stayed by the pool in the morning and then we go to the beach in the afternoon. We went on a lovely boat trip around the islands and swam in the turquoise sea into a cave. (See photo.) It is so relaxing, we wish we could stay forever!'
