The Anatolian peninsula comprising most of modern Turkey is one of the oldest continually inhabited regions in the world due to its location at the intersection of Asia and Europe, bordering the Black Sea, Aegean Sea and Mediterranean Sea. The Mediterranean coastline is dotted with well-preserved Greco-Roman cities such as Pergamom and Ephesus, while the austere and rugged Anatolian plateau has cave churches hidden away in the improbable fairytale landscape of Cappadocia. Istanbul, quintessentially Eastern is at the heart of the nation, with historic Roman aqueducts, Byzantine churches, glittering Ottoman mosques and palaces on offer, contrasting with the modern glamorous bars, restaurants and the new Istanbul Modern Gallery.

The accomodation was excellent, as was the service provided by virtually every member of staff. The fast-track in-villa check in, along with the small cake, bottle of champagne and card to congratulate us on our wedding was a really lovely touch and much appreciated.
