Selimiye Holidays - Travelling back in time
Selimiye is a charming, typical Turkish village tucked away in the mountainous countryside of the Marmaris Peninsula. It is one of those places where it feels like you have gone back in time - you will be welcome by a sleepy laid-back village life with a few local women weaving carpets and skeins of wool on the road side and some fishermen sorting their daily catch on the pebble beach. You will not be able to find any international restaurants or bars on your cheap holidays in Selimiye, nor will you be part of a crowd on a packed beach. Instead, take a walk to the countryside, preferably with a picnic, and breathe in the fresh air filled with fragrance of fresh thyme and sage and the almond trees. The only noise disturbing you on your Selimiye holidays, will be a regular daily call to prayer from the local mosque.
Last Minute Holidays in Selimiye - Relaxing in a peaceful and picturesque rural setting
The beach on your Selimiye holidays is mostly pebbles and shingle and the choice of accommodation is limited to a handful of local family-run guest houses. You will also be able to find some good seafood restaurants serving their freshly prepared daily catch. Last minute holidays in Selimiye are all about relaxing and taking in all that beauty! Visit the ruins of the old castle dating back 2000 years or take a boat trip to one of the surrounding bays, alternatively visit the local olive oil producing farms or just admire the dramatic coastline. In the evening return to your guest house where your host would have prepared a delicious meal for you, most probably consisting of succulent lamb kebab, stuffed peppers or vine leaves or a delicious Mediterranean salad.
