2 nightsIstanbul

Your Turkey honeymoon will begin in Istanbul, where you’ll be whisked off to the Sofa Hotel in the trendy Nisantasi district, awash with stylish boutiques and shops. Istanbul pulsates with buzzing nightlife, fascinating history and delicious cuisine, so you’ll find there’s no shortage of exciting things to do here. Drink in the awe-inspiring sights in Sultanahmet, glide down the glittering Bosphorus on a moonlit river cruise, or shoot up to the rooftop bar at your hotel to sip champagne as you gaze out at the dazzling cityscape.

1 nightAlaçati

We’ll zip you over on a plane to Izmir, where you’ll pick up the car and drive towards Alaçati – just an hour from the airport. As soon as you catch sight of the striking cobalt sea ahead, you’ll know that you’re approaching Alaçati town. Here, you’ll wander down cobbled, pedestrian lanes and pick up Turkish antiques or vibrant textiles from Alaçati’s boutiques, stopping at one of the outdoor cafes to savour Turkish coffee and sweet baklava. For something active, make for the bay to have a go at windsurfing or kitesurfing – this is one of the best places in Europe for water-sports. Your abode for the night is Alavya, centrally located and oozing Turkish charm.

1 nightSirince

Once you’ve had your fill of Alavya’s homemade breakfast and had a final stroll around town, you’ll set off towards Sirince, less than two hours from here. Passing rolling hills carpeted with olive trees, you’ll be enchanted by the countryside surrounding Sirince. You’ll stay at the Terrace Houses, delightfully rustic and providing plenty of privacy with separate cottages set in lush gardens. Once you’ve settled in, drive over to the majestic ancient ruins at Ephesus, steeped in history and glorious to meander through, before returning for a romantic candlelit dinner on the terrace.
