If you’re looking for great value as you pick your Turkish holiday spot this year, then take a look at the Tosunoglu Apartments in Gumbet. This popular, family-run set up, with a great online reputation, is friendly and easy going, with good facilities for the price.
Clean simple rooms are built in a small, low-rise development around a big pool and a smaller kids’ pool. The palm trees in the gardens leave you in no doubt that you’re in a warm climate – even in the depths of winter, the Bodrum area boasts temperatures in the teens, with summer averages well into the 30s. The white-washed walls and tiled floors of the Tosunoglu fit in nicely with traditional Turkish styles. A pool table gives you something to get out of your sun bed for; or you could just lie back, grab a drink from the pool bar and check your social media profiles on the free WiFi.
Somewhere between a completely self-catering apartment set-up and a hotel, there’s a reception desk and some catering available at the Tosunoglu. But head out of the complex – which is a little way back from the sea front – and you’ll find the busy resort centre of Gumbet not far away. There are nearly 100 Trip Advisor-reviewed restaurants in the town, with a good selection of Turkish restaurants and a sprinkling of international establishments.
A little further afield is Bodrum, the premier resort of the Adriatic Coast, and a major regional centre. Its beaches are the main attraction for many visitors. But the town has some depth, too, with ancient sites, a medieval castle, and a museum of underwater archaeology that reflects the area’s strong attraction to divers.
Gumbet is a great area of Bodrum, already an established favourite with British visitors, and the Tosunoglu Apartments offer a great-value way – especially with Loveholidays.com – to discover not just this fun resort but also this beautiful coast.
There have been terrorist attacks in Turkey in recent years. While the UK Foreign and Commonwealth Office recommends some precautions for visitors, especially in some parts of the country, it emphasises that most of the millions of British visitors to Turkey enjoy a safe holiday.
