About the property

2 bedroom apartment - Quiet Location, 10 Mins Walk To The Beach

Apartment Antares is set in a peaceful location on a small, quiet development known locally as Fidan 4. A breathtaking background view of green pine forest mountains, colourful bougainvillea, olive trees and palms provide a tranquil setting in which to relax. Antares is tastefully furnished, and is equipped with all the facilities that make it a real home from home. Ideal for families and couples, it is the perfect place to unwind. There are two large balconies overlooking the pool and garden areas, with generous surroundings for soaking up the sun. A 10 minute walk will find the beach, minimarkets, great bars and restaurants, and the local weekly market.

Note: Family or friends wanting to spend their holiday together?

The two ground floor apartments either side of the pool are ideal for family or friends wanting to spend their holiday together but in separate accommodation. We can put you in touch with the owners opposite for this opportunity. The apartments are the same size, each sleeping 4.

About Mr and Mrs D Smith

We are Chris and Dave, a young-at-heart, still-hard-working couple who value our time on holiday. We have three wonderful sons, and three beautiful little grandsons.

Mr and Mrs D Smith purchased this apartment in 2006

Why Mr and Mrs D Smith chose Lycian & Turquoise Coast

We first came to Turunc with our family in 2003. Besides the unmistakably fabulous scenery, pretty little bay, and clear blue waters, we appreciated the warm and friendly approach of the Turkish people and the feeling of security for our children.

We left Turunc feeling it was “the best holiday ever,” and it wasn’t long before we decided to take the opportunity to buy our home for the family to enjoy whenever they wish. We’ve all been coming back ever since!

We enjoy chatting with the charming and welcoming locals in the village, and the hospitality provided by restaurant owners and their staff, and other traditional outlets. We’ve made some great friends with other holidaymakers, with whom we socialise back at home.

What makes this apartment unique

The beauty of a holiday in Turunc, is they can be as active or relaxed as you care to make them; for us, we enjoy our relaxation!

We love the peaceful location of both the apartment and Turunc itself, which is a far cry from the more lively towns that typically attract package holidays.

Whilst the younger generation are perhaps more adventurous and like to explore, our preferences now are to simply soak up the sunshine around the pool, or explore the pretty little villages and secluded bays nearby, and enjoy a meal out, with a glass of wine or two in the evening!

Turunc and Apartment Antares offer everything for a perfectly peaceful holiday, with plenty of opportunity for activities and adventure if desired.

Activity and Interests

Special interest holidays:

Walking and cycling are of special interest to many visitors to Turunc, and bicycles are available for hire.

Water sports including scuba diving, water skiing, windsurfing, and parasailing are also popular.

Tour operators offer many excursions, some for the day, and some with an overnight stay or two. There is a world of history to be explored in Turunc and the surrounding areas.

Your holiday can be as busy or relaxed as you wish; whether your preference is sunbathing by the pool or beach, or exploring and taking part in the activities and wide variety of excursions on offer, the opportunities are there!

Coast/Beach:

Along the coastline, the beaches are a mixture of fine sand and pebbles. The clear blue waters and interesting coves, can be explored via one of the many boat trips leaving from Turunc harbour. The quaint, serene villages of Amos and Kumlubuk are stunning, and for those seeking a busier area, the larger resorts of Icmelar and Marmaris can be reached by bus or water taxi.

Travel:

Dalaman is the nearest airport, and is approximately one and three quarter hours drive from Turunc. Car hire is available from the airport, but we recommend taking advantage of the transfer facilities we can help with, and perhaps hiring a car later during your holiday.

We are happy to make arrangements for transfers for you at the time of booking, and fees for this are payable directly to our representative in Turunc who set the price.

Distances:

The local "convenience" store is less than 5 minutes walk from the apartment, but supermarkets in the main street have a more extensive range of products.

Turunc village centre and beach are around 10 minutes walk away, and Amos and Kumlubuk a few minutes’ drive. They can also be reached by water taxi, or a walk along the coastal road, which takes between 30 minutes and an hour respectively.

The busier town of Marmaris is approximately 20km along the coastline, and Icmeler just 10km.

Further Details:

Turunc is a smaller more peaceful resort than most, still retaining its local charm. The people are welcoming and their stress-free way of life appeals.

It is ideal for holidaymakers who want to enjoy a relaxed atmosphere in a timelessly beautiful setting. The sun shines for most of the year, but temperatures are at their highest from mid June through July, August and September.

Daily boat trips visit local sites of interest including nearby towns and secluded bays. The Five Bays tour with barbecue on board is great fun. The World Heritage site of Ephesus and the archaelogical remains are spectacular.

There are many bars and restaurants in the village, with fresh seafood, mezes, kebabs and other traditional Turkish cuisine. Welcoming staff guarantee something to suit all tastes. The main street is closed to traffic in the evening, ensuring a safe environment for children. Some “watering holes” provide live music and stay open a little later, but for real nightlife, Marmaris is the place to go!

Turunc has an intriguing variety of shops, selling goods such as: jewellry, clothes, shoes, beachwear and water-sports equipment. Minimarkets sell traditional Turkish souvenirs including local crafts, teas, spices and Turkish Delights, and on Mondays the market comes to town – be prepared to haggle!!

There are several ways to travel around for a reasonable cost. The bus (dolmus) leaves from the town regularly, and taxis and water taxis are also available. Bicycles, motorcycles, quad bikes and jeeps are available for hire in the town. The organised “jeep safari” is an enjoyable day out, and a great way to discover!

The marina at Marmaris is beautiful, and the shops vast. For a special day out with the family, enjoy a visit to the water park.

Turkish Lira is the currency; some locals are happy to take Sterling. The rate of exchange is better in Turkey than in the UK and some outlets will exchange your currency. There are ATMs within the town.
