Antalya is beautiful

Situated on a stunning stretch of coastline better known as the Turkish Riviera, Antalya isn’t all about all-inclusive resorts and championship golf courses. Fringed by fabulous sandy beaches and backed by the Taurus mountain range, the region is surprisingly varied, with tumbling waterfalls, hidden caves and picture postcard landscapes making for an unforgettable backdrop to your stay.

The Mediterranean climate

With roughly 300 days’ sunshine per year and mild winters, the Turkish Riviera serves up a dreamy Mediterranean climate. Notwithstanding the rainy season in February, there’s never a bad time to visit the region, and while the summer months can get intense they are offset by glorious breezy summer evenings.

The region is littered with ancient sites

Tear yourself away from the turquoise waters of the Mediterranean and you will find an abundance of historical sites. Some of the most notorious empires and civilisations in history have made Antalya their home over the centuries leaving behind a plethora of monuments and landmarks to explore. Meanwhile, in the eponymous regional capital, the cobbled streets of the wonderfully preserved old-city folds around a bustling Roman-era harbour. The perfect place to toast your stay.
