Local area

Avsallar is a pleasant bustling town with a few small supermarkets, many shops and a variety of excellent restaurants, and is just 1.5 miles below the villa. Avsallarís main pedestrian street is bustling with life and animation in the evening.

Every Wednesday a large local market takes place in the centre of Avsallar, which is excellent for local food produce, Turkish handicrafts and 'designer' goods.

Tennis courts, fitness and spa facilities (including a traditional Turkish Hamam) are available at a local hotel and it is usually possible for non-residents to negotiate an all-day all-inclusive rate.

A beautiful sandy beach is only a 5 minute drive away at Incekum Beach.

Alanya A further 15 minutes along the coast is the larger picturesque town of Alanya, with its medieval old castle and harbour area, yacht marina, quaint alleyways in the old town, two beautiful sandy beaches (one a Blue Flag beach) and lovely promenade walks. In addition there are two hypermarkets and a wealth of elegant shops and restaurants, both on the seafront and in the town itself.
