A little trumpet blowing!

We are usually quite humble when it comes to the service we provide to our guests and although this is of utmost importance to us, we try not to brag!  However, occasionally we like to share feedback received from our loyal clients, below is a letter received from some of our lovely guests who have just returned from beautiful Kalkan in Turkey:

To Whom it May Concern

Re: Kalkan – Turkey’s Best kept Secret

Firstly, if you’re being put off Turkey by the current political issues, please don’t be! We have just returned from our second holiday in the picturesque village of Kalkan.

Far from being a place to worry about, the locals to a man (and woman) welcomed us as friends and treated us in a manner I have never seen despite travelling extensively throughout Europe, whether we became customers or not.

From the beautiful surroundings of the harbour and beaches to wonderful restaurants serving the most exquisite of reasonably priced food and wine, but our overall memory is one of such friendly welcoming business owners and staff who made our stay even more enjoyable.

It really is a hidden gem, favoured by many Brits who go there several times a year and we would urge you to go and submerse yourselves in the exceptional warmth of the place. We will for definite be booking again for later this year / early next so please don’t be suspicious or afraid – it is a genuinely wonderful (and safe) place to visit.

Finally I cannot congratulate Discerning Collection enough either who’s service from taking over our booking at the last minute (from another company who went bust) through to calling us today to check we had enjoyed it have been utterly first class. Their friendly staff dealt with all our questions in a genuinely supportive manner even through to sending our documentation in a personal travel pack – brilliant !

Many thanks again
