About the property

On the ground floor there is an open plan lounge/kitchen/dining area, twin bedroom & downstairs bathroom with shower. The kitchen is furnished to a high standard with granite work surfaces, dish washer, washing machine, oven/hob & fridge freezer. The dining table sits 6 people. The lounge is furnished with a comfortable sofa/chairs & a TV/video. There are large sliding patio doors from the bedroom & lounge onto the ground floor terrace with table/chairs. There is also a jacuzzi, private pool & garden. A staircase leads from the lounge onto the first floor. Here there are two double bedrooms. Both have fitted wardrobes & en suite facilities including WC/shower. Both bedroom have large sliding patio doors onto the upper terrace which has a stunning sea view to the local beach which is a few minutes walk away. Air conditioning throughout. Completed in 2011

Places to visit: The apartment is situated on the Mediterranean coast approx 2km from Side. The Mediterranean coast of Turkey enjoys hot weather throughout the spring, summer and early autumn months. The apartment is situated nearby to the Taurus mountains which means there is often a lovely, refreshing breeze during the hotter weather. Side enjoys approx 300 days of sunshine per year which makes it an ideal destination for those seeking a warm climate. In April it is possible to ski in the Taurus mountains in the morning and swim in the Mediterranean in the afternoon!! . It is approx 650m from the beautiful sandy beaches of the Turkish Riviera. The beach has a newly developed pedestrian promenade which leads into the heart of Side and is perfect for strolling along the sea front. There is plenty of shops and restaurants nearby. The beach also has many and varied water sports including jet bikes and para-sailing.

Once the secret hideaway of Anthony and Cleopatra, Side is one of the best known classical sites in Turkey and is a unique and charming resort. It has retained many of its architecture and archaeological features including the amphitheatre and the Temple of Apollo. The old town of Side is a joy, with the ancient Roman ruins mixed in between bars, restaurants and shops. The main area of the town is pedestrianised and it's a wonderful place to visit in the early evening to window shop, buy some bargains, have a drink or grab a bite to eat. It has a great atmosphere but in the height of the season be prepared to haggle for the bargains! The harbour area has some great restaurants serving freshly caught fish and other Turkish dishes. There is also the option to rent a boat, join an organised boat trip or go scuba diving. The view in the evening is spectacular and you can watch the sun setting whilst enjoying a drink. Next to the harbour is the roman ruins of the Temple of Apollo.

The town of Manavgat is also nearby. The waterfalls on the jade green Manavgat River are another popular local attraction. But don't stop there, continue on up the mountain to the Green Lake & see the dam. All of this is spectacular. There are also a few wonderful restaurants hidden away. These can be accessed by car or by locally organised Jeep tours. Further into the pine-forested mountains, a Roman bridge spans a rushing river in the Koprulu Canyon National Park, which is one of Turkey's premier white water rafting venues. The ancient city of Aspendos is approx 20 Min drive away. This is most famous for its amphitheatre, probably the best preserved in Asia Minor. It is still in use today, and stages the annual Aspendos Opera and Ballet Festival every summer. In addition to the theatre, there is an acropolis on a hilltop. Alanya is approx 1 hours drive away. Here there is a castle/harbour, large water park and the opportunity to swim with dolphins.

An excellent apartment within a fabulous complex!

  • 5 of 5

The apartment was genuinely excellent. It felt more spacious than the photos had suggested & with 3 shower rooms, it never felt crowded. The private pool was brilliant, giving us the flexibility of spending most mornings at the communal pool of the complex and the afternoons on our private patio, in and out of the great pool, which was big enough for the 6 of us to relax in and enjoy!

The Babylon complex is really modern and impressive with terrific facilities, a good value restaurant & only a 5 minute walk to the "Dolmus bus stop", and 2 minutes walk to a good value local shop & 2 of the best restaurants we visited.

I would highly recommend the apartment to any family of up to 6.

Had a fantastic, relaxing holiday

  • 5 of 5

We had a very relaxing holiday. The apartment is so lovely. Especially the private pool was very popular among all of us. Also the staff were very helpful and friendly.

We have two children. We can recommend accommodation for families with children. Of course, due to stairs and pool you have to be very careful.

Thank you Bridget for everyhing! We hope to return some day.

Lovely villa, great amenities

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in Babylon apartments in July and had a fantastic holiday. The apartment is beautifully furnished and well equipped with everything you could need. The private pool proved very popular with everybody: either for an early morning dip or a late night cool off. The complex facilities such as the pool table, table tennis and table football were all much appreciated. We also enjoyed the large complex pool which was never crowded and usually befitted from a pleasant breeze. We would recommend the pool bar for drinks and meals, which were very tasty and offered more than just burger and chips!

Babylon is a short walk to the beach, with several shops nearby. We also found that several reasonably priced restaurants that were either within walking distance or had a free pick up/drop off service. Owner Bridget was very helpful and friendly prior to and throughout our stay .

We hope to return!

The apartment is situated within the Luxury Babylon Complex in 'Kumkoy'. This is within walking distance to the beach and approx 2km to the centre of Side. Both Kumkoy and Side have beautiful sandy beaches. There are many restaurants and shops in the area including small supermarkets. It is easy to catch the local minibus called a 'Dolmus' to get you around easily. These stop near to the apartment and can be easily flagged down or alternatively you can wait at a designated stop. These are very frequent and very inexpensive.

Other Activities: Scuba diving, Para-sailing

Golf: The local resort of Belek is approx 15 minutes drive away. One of the main attractions of Belek is its superb range of PGA/Championship courses with a couple of courses having been designed by Nick Faldo and Colin Montgomerie. Belek has been particularly developed as an attractive golfing holiday destination. It is one of Turkey`s premier golf centres with world-class golf courses where both the novice and the expert can hone their skills.

Ski: Skiing is available in the Taurus mountains which is approx 1.5 hours drive from the apartment. The main resort is called Davras and has skiing up to 2,250m. There are black, red and blue runs so there is something for every level of skier. Access to the slopes is via drag or chair lifts.
