This famous historical holiday resort is just 5 km from our hotel and cannot fail to impress you with its picturesque Old Town and small fishing harbour. The fabled ruins of the Apollo Temple and the remains of the old city wall are not only world-famous, but take you back in time to the days of the Ancient Greeks. Next, you could amble through the narrow streets and haggle for typical Turkish souvenirs, or relax on the heavenly, white sandy beach.
Capital of the Turkish Riviera, the coastal city is situated on travertine cliffs 30 metres above the Mediterranean. The view is fabulous, the circular harbour captivating and the garden houses with their hipped roofing simply enchanting.
In this lively little town, a market is held every Friday, where you can soak up a true Turkish way of life far from the crowds of tourists.
Aspendos was built in the heyday of the Roman Empire and was an important trading centre in that era. The well preserved and very well-known theatre of Aspendos is still in use today for operas and ballets and was the venue for an open-air episode of the German TV entertainment show "Wetten, dass..." in 2005.
Waterfalls in the region
In the area around our hotel, you can find numerous waterfalls surrounded by glorious countryside. One of the most romantic of these spots is the Manavgat Waterfall. From a small terrace, you can enjoy a wonderful view of this spectacle of nature.
The Kursunlu Waterfalls are a little further inland, but certainly worth a trip. Even on the journey there through green pine forests and during the short walk to your destination, you will experience Nature in all her splendour.
