Special Turkey and More !
And more Special Turkish Holidays ideas can be found in this article in the Observer from June 2006 - on unknown Turkey, focusing on four regions that deserve a closer look away from the tourist centers: The Lycian Hinterland, the Bozburun Peninsula, the Datca Peninsula and the sailing resort of Gocek and the nearby Taurus Mountains
And talking of Dacta in Turkey, if you have a family and are looking for something different but relaxing have a look at Club Perili - its on the very unspoilt edge of Datça’s shimmering bay and offers the ultimate escape with the perfect balance between all out action and complete relaxation.
Meanwhile - in Greece: Hotel Keti is located in a dramatic privileged position, high on the edge of the largest volcanic caldera in the world. From your balcony you can gaze in awe at the fabulous sweeping views and watch the activity around the beautiful cruise ships at anchor below. Sip wine or ouzo while enjoying unforgettable sunsets.
And then there is always Italy:
If you are looking for a holiday immersed in the sounds, the colours, the perfume of an uncontaminated countryside…..If you like going for long walks, looking for mushrooms, horseback trekking, birdwatchingAnd just listening to the sounds of nature or simply eating good, genuine and tasty traditional farm food prepared in our distinctive way from our own produce…….Then what are you waiting for ….. come to see us at “Li Licci”
When in Rome ... take in a blast of culture. Why now? For a blast of culture. The Museo di Villa Torlonia with a collection of modern Roman art and the Museo Barracco, showcasing Egyptian, Greek and Roman sculpture, are the latest additions to a mind-boggling array. Pick up a Roma Pass for €20 (romanturismo.com) for free entry and travel.
Getting there The usual low-cost suspects.
Where to stay Buonanotte Garibaldi (buonanottegaribaldi.com) is a new artist-owned B&B in Trastevere, from €220 a night. A more economical option is to book an apartment (romesweetrome.com).
Where to eat Enoteca Antica (Via delle Croce). There's a restaurant at the back but the best spot is at the bar with a glass of prosecco and a plate of antipasti.
