Travel

Planning

You will need to check availability of our apartments, by sending us an enquiry form, and at the same time check the flight prices.

You can see from our prices there are two seasons; low season from mid-October to the end of April; high season is from May through to early October with fine weather and full use of the pool.

Airlines

Antalya is the closest regional airport, 60 km and one hour easy car journey on the easy D400.  Most national airlines will fly in to Istanbul, which is 800kms from Side, Manavgat/Antalya, Turkey.

Thomas Cook Airlines – fly during the season directly to Antalya.

Skyscanner – a great resource which compares flights from all the airlines so Antalya.

Airport Transfers

We can arrange a car transfer with a tried and trusted local company, costing about £20 each way, depending on size of car and time of arrival.  There is a taxi rank at the airport but be prepared to negotiate a fair price.  There is no reliable convenient bus.

Getting Around Side

Once you are at the apartment complex, it is a short walk to some local shops and restaurants.  You can reach the beach and main strip of restaurants in 15 minutes.  There is a tourist bus ‘Dolphin’ which runs to the beach area during high season.

Car Hire

You don’t really need to hire a car for the whole week, but it is relatively cheap and will give you the flexibility to make impromptu day trips to the host of archaeological and natural sites around the Antalya Manavgat region.

Antalya

Antalya is worth a few hours, perhaps combined with your onward travel plans.    Kaleici (old town) is nice to wander around and the archaeological museum is highly recommended. As well as the tram rides.

Get a dolmus (Turkish shared taxi) from Side to Manavgat (just up the road) from where there are buses running from Manavgat into Antalya all the time (1hr30 £10). From the Antalya Otogar bus terminal you can take the tram into town.
