Breathtaking beauty

Greece and Turkey are destinations which are sure to delight. Greece means crystal-blue water, spectacular natural beauty and archaeological sites, while Turkey straddles two continents—Asia and Europe.

Set against a backdrop of pine clad hills, Marmaris is a resort which combines natural beauty with an astounding zest for life. Famed for its nightlife, the most extravagant on the entire south coast, this developed resort offers the best of both worlds. The surrounding countryside offers the best in culture, due to the succession of scenic roads and picturesque villages, which lead to ancient ruins and unspoilt beaches.

Gumbet is a lively beach resort and a popular tourist destination on the Aegean coast of Turkey and has become a major tourist destination, especially for UK holidaymakers. As the resort is fairly small, travelling around on your Gumbet holiday will be as leisurely as possible, since everywhere is easily within reach by foot. The Gumbet beach is a kilometre of golden sand which curves around the bay. There are excellent restaurants, nightclubs, water sports opportunities and safe swimming.

Corfu is a Greek island and the second largest of the Ionian Islands. It is closely linked with the history of this ancient country and the beginning of Greek mythology.

No less historic is Crete, the fifth-largest island in the Mediterranean Sea. It was once the centre of the Minoan civilisation (2700-1420BC), which is regarded as the earliest recorded in Europe.
