"Apollon Paradise" is built just outside the centre of Side, which is one of the oldest antique cities in Turkey.
The community is within 600 metres of the east beach and about half a mile from the heart of the town but a car is definitely un necessary. Old Roman ruins within Side run down to the warm Mediterranean waters, which create the perfect ambiance needed for a holiday in the sun.
Due to its perfect location in the area, it provides a very easy accessibility to the amenities near by, such as, restaurants, bars, shops and supermarkets are only a few minutes walking distance from the complex. It is also very easy to walk to the beach from the site as well as to the old town of Side.
Everything was super! The location is perfect - very quite and peaceful. The town and beach is only 5 minutes drive by car, so is the large supermarket Migros. Cafe and restaurant on site is very modestly priced and food is great, so there is no need to travel anywhere if you fancy some turkish cuisine. The apartment is very large and bright. Great kitchen facilities let you cook yourself and save money. The are a lot of stunning sceneries you can visit within 30-40 minutes drive - Green Canyon, Manavgat waterfall, Duden and Kursunlu Waterfall. Antalya or Alanya is only an hour drive. In overall the best place for the money you can find in the region. Special thanks to Chris for his hospitality and being very helpful!
Our trip to Turkey was great, thanks to our host Christopher (and Sue). Christopher was really friendly, helped us a lot for example by the airport transfer and in many other things too, like changing our money in the local Bank, buying fruit and vegetables in the best local market, and found a great travel agency where we could book our excursions. He could answer all of our questions.
The apartment was better than in the pictures, big, very clean, comfortable, well-equipped with 2 ACs, flat screen tv with lot of english channels (movies too), and a great pool outside. We can absolutely recommend it, we would like to go back again any time!
The sandy beach is superb, they are some free (!) mini buses to get there from the apartment if you don't like to walk.
This is the final rate, including any fees from the host and Airbnb.
