People looking forward to a Turkey villa holiday this year have been offered some advice on how to make the most of their break.
The Guardian gathered the views of a number of travel experts regarding activities and experiences on offer in the country.
Holiday makers planning to visit the Aegean coast during their Turkey villa breaks were encouraged to see the Cesme peninsula.
John Scott, editor of Cornucopia magazine, said that the destination is a good alternative to the tourist hotspot of Bodrum.
In Alacati, visitors can relax on a sandy beach that is popular among windsurfers or see olive groves, lavender plantations and other scenic locations.
People who will be visiting Turkey this year were also encouraged to consider holidays in Yalikavak, a small town on the north-west of the Bodrum peninsula.
Centred around a small harbour, the village is home to sights including a 300-year-old windmill.
Visitors can also explore the streets that stretch inland from the coast and sample some local food at one of the restaurants along the seafront.
