I just read through the Travel section of the NY Times, read this article
, and fell in love with this property, the Dionysos Hotel Kumlubuk
in Turkey. It's in Marmaris, which is right across from the Dodecanese Islands in Greece, where I lived on an island for a year when I was in my late teens. It's a flight and a drive, but according to the article, it's an easy drive. What I like about the property is that it's on an organic farm, they make their own olive oil, it's 5 minutes to the sea, there's a pool, several restaurants...they can take you out on a boat...basically, it has all the elements of a 5 star resort...but with a very authentic, quality vibe. And it's not in the middle of nowhere--you can have all the pluses of a resort, but you can also drive around and experience Turkey. It reminds me of one of my favorite places, the Masseria Torre Coccaro
, which is in Puglia.
