Because of official travel advice, we don’t have holidays to Turkey at the moment, but there are plenty of other places to visit instead. SEARCH

Tucked away in a peaceful bay on the glorious Aegean coast in southwest Turkey, you’ll come across the charming village of Özdere. For many, holidays to Özdere are all about miles and miles of golden sandy beaches; the perfect spot for relaxing in the sunshine. And if you do want to pick up the pace, you could always give watersports a go or head into the lush green hills that surround the town. You’ll also find yourself within easy reach of the ancient city of Ephesus, which is an absolute must-see while you’re in the region.

Things to do

The beach may be your first port of call on holidays to Özdere (after all, it’s hard the resist the temptation of those gloriously white sandy shores), but if you do fancy a change of scenery, you won’t be disappointed. The village itself is a hive of activity, with its lively markets and bustling restaurants. And if you fancy taking a trip beyond the village, you’ll find a wealth of fascinating historic sights to see. You could also take a short boat trip over to a different country altogether, and hop over to the Greek islands for a great excursion.
