With glorious beaches, wonderful resorts and sightseeing too, what could be better than a holiday by the Med?

For a relaxing holiday, not too far from the UK, try the Mediterranean coast or one of the many, very special islands. 

You can just ‘flop and drop’, recharge your batteries by the sea or maybe you’d like to discover a little more. Elegant towns and pretty villages, along with history and culture, are on offer too.

Simpson Turkey

Turkey is a beguiling mix of East and West, indeed it epitomises ‘the road less travelled’.

Simpson Travel has found some of the most special, charming villas and boutique hotels in Turkey, where hospitality is unstinting. 

The gracious welcome from Turkish hosts is second to none: your holiday happiness is really important.

From the beautiful, fresh food, the artistic and interesting design along with the outstanding views, Turkey is a joy. 

From towns such as Kalkan, which has a lovely evening buzz, where waterside and rooftop restaurants serve delicious meals, with stunning sunsets as a backdrop, through to the busy market in Fethiye and the bustling marinas at Gocek, or the Dalyan delta with rock tombs, waterways and many boats, Turkey is enjoyed by everyone.

The coastal area is beautiful, often with dramatic landscapes behind it, full of great walks. Further inland you can enjoy historical treasures, Roman, Greek and Lycian remains with fascinating history. 

Turkish or apple tea is a must, as is a taste of ayran, sitting in one of the many shady squares that each town and village still have in their centre.

Simpson Corsica

Corsica is rugged, handsome and rather sophisticated too, rightly known as the isle of beauty.

The scenery is stunning, as it is the most mountainous island in the Mediterranean. Its proximity to Italy adds an extra dimension to its French character, creating a pleasing blend of the two cultures, which is uniquely Cosican.

There are the charming villages and hamlets of The Balagne, as well as the sandy beach resorts, offering a wide range of water sports, of the West Coast and glamorous marinas at Porto Vecchio and Bonifacio. Calvi, with its castle, is filled with summer festivals and walkers will delight in escaping to peaceful countryside or taking in the stunning coast.

Whether you are looking for a stylish modern villa with all amenities, a comfortable apartment in one of the towns or a rural retreat, Simpson Travel is the place to find your ideal Corsican holiday.
