Turkey is the ideal October destination with almost guaranteed sun and one of the longest summer seasons in the Mediterranean. Turkey offers a variety of activities to suit all ages and interests, from ancient ruins, stunning beaches and Hammam spas to local markets and charming villages.
Simpson Travel has hand-picked three properties ideal for families with different interests:
Aydos Club, Dalyan – For families who love to get out and about
This charming riverside hotel consisting of 20 split-level rooms is set on the banks of the Dalyan River, one of the most stunning conservation areas in south western Turkey. A family favourite is the hotel’s stylish Ottoman river boat, the 'Aydos', which transports guests down the river each morning to Iztuzu Beach - a haven for the loggerhead turtle. In the evening guests can take the trip down the river again and dine beneath the illuminated Lycian rock tombs. If youngsters want to get messy, the local mud baths are always a favourite.
