We fell in love with the Turkey many years ago and continue to believe it is a destination without parallel.  Our hand-picked regions lie away from the main tourist trail and allow you to encounter genuine people and unique cultural experiences that form life-long memories. In essence, our aim being to create holidays which allow you to enjoy the very best that this beautiful country has to offer in a manner available to only the few.... 

  • Kalkan

    Small, stylish and sophisticated, Kalkan is an archetypal Mediterranean harbour town with cobbled alleyways rising up from a picture-postcard seafront.

  • Kaş Peninsula 

    Cobbled alleys, a bustling café culture, a picturesque harbour and a verdant peninsula which is home to some of the best addresses on the coast.

  • Gemile Peninsula 

    Undeveloped and unspoiled, the Gemile Peninsula is a protected region of natural beauty, one of mountains, coves, crystal clear waters and lush greenery meeting turquoise water.

  • Bozburun Peninsula

    The craggy mountainous Bozburun Peninsula is the real Hidden Turkey. 

    Even in the peak of summer, the peninsula remains gloriously peaceful and uncrowded.

  • Exclusive Gulet Cruising

    The perfect way to explore the stunning coastline in a manner available to only the few, all in complete luxury aboard our exclusive gulet, Seyhan Hanna.

The Lycian Coast

Turkey combines dramatic scenery with wonderful hospitality, sublime food and an eclectic, still-visible ancient history.  Warm and hospitable by nature, broad smiles and open arms welcome you throughout city and coast. 
Fairlight Jones has unrivalled knowledge of this stunning country and welcoming people and in particular the special region known as The Lycian Coast.

    Nestled between the harbour towns of Datça to the west and Kaş to the east, the Lycian Coast is a dazzling stretch of deep blue Mediterranean offset by dense pine forests dipping down to fjord-style inlets, wide open bays and unspoilt villages along its winding shores. 

    Strict conservation orders have preserved the lush vegetation, wildlife, ancient settlements and prevented high rise development along the sea front. With the exception of the urban sprawl of Marmaris, pretty, coastal villages with Hellenistic origins retain a low-key atmosphere and day-to-day rural lives remain intact.

  • The perceived inaccessibility of the vast Bay of Kalkan and the Kaş Peninsula has allowed tourism to develop slowly and modestly and the area deserves its reputation as home to Turkey’s most stylish coastal retreats. Characterful pensions, family-run boutique hotels and luxurious private villas coexist harmoniously with the traditionally sea-faring community. Stylish beach clubs and decked bathing platforms are the perfect eyrie to watch the myriad of boats meandering in and out of the harbour.

    The area has long been renowned for its wonderful sailing and small lokantas (cafés) established to serve the yachting community have evolved into high quality, seafood restaurants. Turkish-Mediterranean cuisine is now matched by exceedingly fine Turkish wine and can be taken on candle-lit roof-terraces and floating pontoons. In the back streets, small eateries still thrive with inventive and mouth-watering cuisine from octopus meatballs to cuttlefish stew.

The region overflows with the opportunity to immerse yourself in Turkey’s culture and is littered with ancient sites you are likely to have all to yourselves: basilica arches, floor mosaics and ancient amphitheatre lie as they fell and are all the better for it.
