I just couldn’t believe how close this property is to the beach – a 30 second walk (if that!). If you’re looking for an authentic, and traditional Turkish experience amongst the locals, in a really chilled out resort, you won’t be disappointed. Everything you could need is nearby – a supermarket for water (and the odd bottle of wine for that pre-dinner drink on the balcony!), plenty of ATMs, pharmacy, a coffee shop that does some of the best coffee and cakes I’ve ever had, and a bus stop which can take you straight to Bodrum!
This really is an experience – the perfect holiday destination if you’re seeking solitude and sunshine – I saw and experience things that I probably wouldn’t have done if I hadn’t stayed here. Learning about history, understanding how the locals live and eating traditional Turkish food, all whilst getting a bit of sun in a stunning location. Such a beautiful spot after sundown too – I saw the most spectacular sunset whilst enjoying a couple of drinks on the decked beach bar with my fellow guests.
Plus, the choice of excursions was phenomenal – there was something for everyone! I experienced culture at the amphitheatre, ate my body weight in Turkish delight, held a baby turtle, bought a hand-made carpet and so much more! A must-do however is to spend a day in Bodrum – it’s a short taxi drive away (or you can get a bus there if you fancy). During the day, there are lots of shops and a market every Friday (you have to do some shopping for the ‘real fakes’!). The evenings are lively with some great restaurants and bars – we sat and listen to live music one night, whilst sipping rose, which was a highlight.
Most unique experience – The Jeep Safari
Journey up into the mountains with your fellow Solos guests, with spectacular views at the top. It’s like no other tour I’ve ever been on and is perfect for those wanting to see how the locals live and explore more of the countryside. The carpet factory, turtles and mud bath all in one day!
Best value for money – The Bodrum City Tour
I would encourage everyone to go on this excursion as it’s a great way to get into Bodrum, and get the most famous sites ticked off your list. It allows you the freedom to explore after your tour, with free time to venture further at your leisure.
A full day on the water – The Boat trip
Guests can enjoy a smooth sail, and four optional swim stops. There are enough sunbeds on-board for everyone too. Lunch is a really good selection of Turkish food – probably one of my favourite lunches of the week.
“Debs, the Tour leader, was fabulous. So sociable and organising our days, so I didn’t have to think, which was great. She is a wonderful leader!”
Joanne, Solos Customer“Debs was wonderful at making you feel at ease.” Stephanie, Solos Customer “Our tour leader Debs was lovely and got just the right balance of organising us but allowing people freedom to do their own thing. She was very much was one of the group and one of the new set of friends I now have.” Sue, Solos Customer
“I’m sure you will enjoy it, I have been on three solos holidays to date and the people I’ve met have been great.”
“I’ve been travelling with Solos for nearly 20 years, on and off. The reason is for exactly what you want – you meet like minded people… and have loads of fun!”
“I’ve been on loads of trips with Solos over the years and can honestly say you will not regret booking your 1st one!”
“The feeling you have once you go away on your own is worth all the nerves before! I was so very anxious the first time but now having done it 4 times, I love it!”
