Thanks God for TripAdvisor! How did people plan vacations before without the help of all the forum enthusiasts?!
Forums have helped me immensely to discover private, secluded, picturesque places in Turkey.
Now I'm looking for more...
We're flying in to Antalya. We know all about Cirali and Adrasan. But they're a little expensive for us. We need places that feel as small, rural and beautiful as they do, but maybe less expensive. Something as cheap and beautiful as Patara - but closer to the Antalya airport.
This is what I posted a year ago when I was initially looking for unspoilt Turkey:
"I'm planning a vacation in Turkey for 5 adults and 2 kids (3 and 2 years old). I can't stand the idea of a 800-room megaresort with crowds of screaming tourists. I dream of privacy and seclusion, something small and personal. What a dreamer, ha?
And all of this is further complicated by the fact that I dare to want:
- a beach within walking distance from hotel
- certain interaction with locals
- unspoiled nature with hiking trails, lagoons, bays, rivers
- places of cultural/historic interest to drive to in the vicinity"
Thank you for all your help! I really appreciate it!
