Take Turkey at a gentler pace

As the very first Turkish town to sign up officially to an international slow-living movement called Cittaslow, Seferihisar holidays are all about taking things easy. It’s a trend that encourages visitors to avoid packed itineraries and do things at a more considered pace, taking your time to soak up the atmosphere and drink in your surroundings – quite literally, in fact.

This busy agricultural area is renowned for its tangerines, olive oil and wine, as you’ll discover at its restaurants, which are focused on local sourcing. Sustainability is key to Seferihisar’s slow-living status – you’ll notice that all the streetlights are solar-powered and the shopping bags at the busy markets are biodegradable.

Seferihisar’s idyllic location on the Aegean Coast means that there’s also plenty of dramatic ancient history to learn about and miles of rugged countryside to hike, or even see on two wheels on a cycling tour. Thanks to its easy-going tempo and connection with the deep past, holidays to Seferihisar in Turkey are really rather timeless.

Best things to do in Seferihisar

Hit the harbour

Sigacik port is dominated by an Ottoman-era castle built with stones thought to have been brought from the ruins at the nearby ancient Greek city of Teos. Every Sunday, the mighty fortification hosts a local crafts and produce market.

Meet the ancients

Teos is a highly photogenic set of ruins of stone artefacts – all that remains of a proud city established by the impressive-sounding Achaean General Athamas around 1080 BC.

Get on your bike

Cycle up the region’s rugged mountain paths, down its forest roads and along its sleepy seafront. For a truly lovely sight, aim for May and June when the aromatic tangerine orchards on Sigacik Plain flower.
