Rich in history with landscapes and activities ready to blow your mind, Turkey is a superb destination. A country proud of its heritage, you are treated to delightful cuisine, beautiful beaches and vibrant towns. The medieval location of Alanya is perfect for a family holiday as you enjoy long swathes of golden sand and an authentic Turkish experience.
A four-hour flight from the United Kingdom and boasting temperatures touching 30ºC during the summer months, this spot behind the Tauraus Mountains makes for an unforgettable break. The Avena Resort and Spa Hotel is a popular choice in Alanya and offers great value for money.
The Avena is a spacious, all-inclusive resort with large rooms and a private sandy beach that is merely 150 metres, a five minute walk, away – and comes with sunbeds and a beach bar! During the day you can surf the internet in the lobby, have a drink at the pool bar, swim in the warm swimming pool and take advantage of a plethora of activities during the day with the energetic entertainment staff before enjoying the shows in the evenings.
From table tennis and cycling to the spa and sauna, there is something for everyone to enjoy. The helpful crew are there to take care of your every need and the buffet food is good with local Turkish pizzas and pastries available. There are plenty of shops and bars around the hotel and, being just a short taxi ride into the centre, you have the chance to explore the area.
This hotel offers great service for a lovely holiday but the location adds an extra string to its bow. The city of Alanya has grown rapidly since tourists found the wonderful stretches of beach – many now classed as Blue Flag – it has to offer and outside of the all-inclusive resorts there is a wonderful waterfront to explore and boat cruises to enjoy.
There are a lot of modern additions to the area with nightclubs that go on until the early hours, but away from the modern centre you get traditional red-roofed houses that run up the hillside and places steeped in history. Take a look at these six places to visit in Alanya:
Glorious weather in a four-star setting, the Avena Resort and Spa Hotel is a wonderful Mediterranean getaway for all the family. Steps away from the ocean, with the city a short distance away, find your family the perfect summer deal with Holiday Gems today.
