Self-catered apartments on Turkey’s Turquoise Coast. If you’re looking for somewhere that combines the benefits of staying in self-catered accommodation while also having access to a whole host of facilities designed for both leisure and relaxation, these apartments tick all the boxes. Each one is equipped with a kitchenette (including a hob, a fridge and a microwave), a furnished balcony, air conditioning and a 32-inch TV, giving you that extra bit of comfort, convenience and personal space to enjoy throughout your holiday. The apartment complex is part of the adjacent Grand Cettia Hotel, which sits on a hillside in Marmaris – a bustling resort town on Turkey’s Turquoise Coast, where pine-forested mountains slope down towards the meeting point of the Aegean and Mediterranean seas. It’s an excellent choice for families, friends and couples alike, featuring a couple of outdoor pools, along with a wellness area with an indoor pool, a sauna, a Jacuzzi and a Turkish bath (some spa amenities and treatments require an additional fee).
If you’re up for something more energetic, be sure to make the most of the on-site gym and floodlit tennis courts, or hop in the pool and join in with a game of volleyball or water polo. Keen to hit the beach? The nearest one is around a 15-20 minute stroll away (or you can take a taxi if you’d rather go a little further along the coast). Younger ones will be in their element here, too, with a kids’ club, a playground, splash pools and a couple of water slides offering endless entertainment throughout the day. Later on, open-air theatre productions, live music performances and magic shows keep the good times rolling long into the night. When you’re not making the most of the catering facilities in your apartment, why not stop by one of the hotel’s bars for a drink or a bite to eat? Please note that some of the images show shared facilities within the main Grand Cettia Hotel.

Marmaris is a time-honoured holiday destination for sandy toes and ice cream, but there is more to the Mediterranean resort than meets the eye. Its beaches, harbourside restaurants and drinking palaces on Bar Street are well worth your time but don’t overlook the charming Old Town, with its hilly lanes of whitewashed houses and crumbling stone walls climbing above the yacht-lined marina. Cats doze in shady doorways and little restaurants serve traditional Turkish dishes. Marmaris holidays should also take in the 16th-century hilltop castle. Ottoman sultan Suleyman the Magnificent built the fort as a base for his five-month siege of the Knights Hospitaller on nearby Rhodes. Holidays to Marmaris also offer a schedule of strolling the ‘kordon’ promenade, swimming, diving and boat trips, perhaps in a traditional wooden ‘gulet’. Marmaris is a deservedly popular resort, with the odd corner to escape the crowds and to glimpse authentic Turkish life.
