                                                the real hidden Turkey. Almost a living museum,
                                                it provides an insight into life in rural Turkey
                                                much as it was 50 to 100 years ago. Even in the
                                                peak of summer, the peninsula remains peaceful
                                                and uncrowded.

                                                east meets west. An exceptional mix of the
                                                ancient and contemporary – an experience not
                                                to be missed.




                                                The National Park of Cappadocia, Turkey
                                                Subterranean cities, cave houses, tunnels,

                                                enchanting landscape – Cappadocia is quite
                                                simply one of the most extraordinary places on
                                                the planet.



                                                Fiscardo, Cephalonia
                                                With fishing boats around the bay, bougainvillea
                                                hanging from the Venetian-style houses
                                                and waterfront tavernas, Fiscardo is a truly
                                                picturesque harbour village – one to rival any in
                                                the Mediterranean.



                                                Assos, Cephalonia
                                                A glorious harbour village with a more rustic
                                                and rural feel than Fiscardo. The charm of
                                                sleepy Assos lies very much in its simplicity and
                                                stunning setting.
