Luxury Turkey Holidays

Beaches and bazaars

Turkey transports you to a world where east meets west, effortlessly combining the old and the new. Explore a world of modern shopping malls and boutique accommodation, next to ancient ruins, Roman forts, Ottoman mosques and traditional bazaars. There is something for all types of holidaymaker, with families enjoying precious time together on glorious golden beaches, couples discovering romantic hillside hamlets and strolls through the shady pine forests. Adventurers can choose from diving along the Aegean Coast or uncovering the mystery of the cave towns of Cappadocia. 

Head to Belek on the Turkish Riviera, and the crème de la crème on Turkey’s Mediterranean Coast, thanks to its magnificent hotels and bars along the 16 kilometre sand and shingle beach. Fairway fans will be spoilt for choice with eight championship golf courses to choose from.

When to go

There are no two ways about it – Turkey is hot. Summers top 30°C, with an average of 12 hours of sunshine a day and virtually no rain. The coast is cooled by sea breezes, which are particularly welcome in the mid-summer months. Spring and autumn are good times to go, averaging a thoroughly beach-ready mid-20s with plenty of sunshine and blue skies.

Visa Information

A visa is required to enter Turkey and must be purchased prior to travel through The E-visa can be applied for up to 3 months in advance of your travel date. Please ensure this is applied for prior to travel, as it is no longer possible to apply for a visa on arrival at any Turkish Airport. For more information please visit 


In restaurants in Turkey it’s common to leave 10-15% as a tip, unless service charge is included – make sure you check your bill carefully. Round up the fare when paying your taxi driver, although it’s not necessary to tip a dolmus driver. In the very popular Turkish baths, you should tip the masseuse between 10-20%.

Introduction to languages

The official language of Turkey is Turkish. English is widely spoken too, so getting by is easy.
