Self-catering Turkey - the people and culture

The people of Turkey are made up of two main ethnic groups; the Turks and the Kurdish people. The country is also predominantly Muslim although the government is secular. As you will soon discover during your stay in our self-catering holiday villas in Turkey, the people are generally warm, open and friendly. Many of them are tremendously proud of their country and will happily discuss it with you - so why not ask a local for a recommendation of a restaurant in one of the Turkish holiday resorts. For sports enthusiasts, have a chat about football, which is a very popular sport in the country.

Customs and culture - Turkey villas

In the Turkish culture, elders are greatly respected. If you are meeting with Turkish people during your stay in one of our holiday lettings in Turkey it would be customary for you to greet the eldest person there. It is typical that upon greeting then one would kiss their hand before touching your forehead to their hand out of respect. You will also find during your stay in your chosen self-catering holiday homes of the popular holiday resorts in Turkey, that the people enjoy their food and take time over their meals and that this is an important part of the Turkish culture and a time for socialising.

Traditions and Customs in Turkey

Evening meals often last for several hours and involve lots of courses - with the occasional break for some Raki - a strong local spirit. Why not take a leaf out of the locals' book during your self-catering holidays in Turkey and make the most of meal times with your travel companions. Often, at the end of a meal either in a home or in a restaurant you will be served some Turkish coffee, an important part of the Turkish cuisine. Turkish coffee is more intense than what we would be used to at home in the UK but it is the national drink and so should be sampled at least once during your stay in your chosen villas to rent in Turkey from our range of holiday homes.
