Turkey’s delights

Since its time as the center of the Ottoman Empire, Turkey has been a crossroads where cultures collide. Straddling the boundaries of Europe and Asia, and boasting a wide-ranging collection of influences—Hellenistic, Roman, Byzantine, and more—the country has rightfully earned its reputation as one of the world’s most diverse destinations. For visitors to Turkey, vacation rentals promise an ideal base for exploring its finest wonders; the golden sands of Antalya’s beaches, bustling fairs and festivals of the Izmir art scene, and archaeological sites and heritages landmarks of Ankara and Istanbul are all enticing options for exotic getaways.

Things to do

Ancient wonders of Turkey

Built at present-day Bodrum between 353 and 350 BCE, the Mausoleum at Halicarnassus was considered one of the Seven Wonders of the Ancient World—one of 2 such structures to be found in Turkey. The construction of this tomb attracted many of the period’s most notable artists, who ornamented its 4 sides with sculptural reliefs. Today, only the foundations remain, after a series of earthquakes laid waste to the original edifice between the 12th and 15th centuries, but an on-site museum displays fascinating artifacts and models that showcase the original splendor of this architectural marvel.

Activities

Turkey's water sports

The Aegean and Mediterranean Seas wrap around Turkey’s scenic coastline, providing ample opportunity for an aquatic adventure. Whether it’s white-water rafting on Antalya’s Köprülü River, catching a gnarly wave off the shores of Turgutreis, or kiteboarding in picturesque Canakkale, there’s no shortage of pulse-pounding entertainment to be had. The turquoise waters of Bodrum, meanwhile, promise ideal conditions for spotting vibrant coral, an enviable variety of plants, and even fascinating sunken-city remains. Due to the recent influx of divers to the coastal resorts of Turkey, vacation rentals are in high demand, so be sure to book early.

Weather

Seasonal shifts in Turkey

The most popular vacation rentals in Turkey are found along the western and southern coasts, where a temperate Mediterranean climate keeps things mild in winter. The region also promises warm, sun-soaked summer days, so beach trips and outdoor excursions are a breeze. Areas near the Black Sea tend to experience cooler winters and wetter summers, though the showers don’t last long. You might not expect to find world-class ski resorts in Turkey, but Ilgaz and Kartalkaya are just 2 of the towns that have turned their snow-filled off-season periods into a prize attraction.

Natural features

Turkey's natural side

To discover a more natural side of Turkey, vacation rentals near Belgrad Forest, a beloved oasis for Istanbul city slickers in search of serenity, are just the ticket. This mixed deciduous woodland is decorated with a variety of hiking, jogging, and walking trails, as well as 9 nature parks and the Atatürk Arboretum. The latter is a must-visit for outdoor enthusiasts, who can stroll around the 3 central lakes and admire indigenous and exotic flora, including the likes of wetland bald cypresses, colorful bird of paradise flowers, and the endangered dawn redwood.
