Lovers of outdoors living risk a soaking in the UK, yet trading a holiday under canvas for a villa in the Mediterranean doesn’t necessarily mean giving up the great outdoors altogether. Turkey and Cephalonia holiday specialist Exclusive Escapes is offering a number of new quirky places to stay designed to maximise outdoors living - from an outside kitchen, to an inside-outside pool and a Jacuzzi bath that looks out across the Gulf of Fethiye, contemporary holidays that maximise outdoors life have never looked this good.

A kitchen under the stars

See :

Go one step further than a BBQ at A View with a Room villa, in the mountain village of Islamlar, near Kalkan. The brand new romantic hideaway has an open air kitchen and dining area which allows meals to be prepared under the stars while enjoying far-reaching views across the mountains to Patara beach in the distance. With a floor-to-ceiling glass frontage to maximize the idyllic position, guests can lie in their king-size bed or relax in the Jacuzzi bathroom next door still enjoying the endless views.
Price: Seven nights from £800 pp, including return flights (ex Heathrow, Gatwick and Manchester), transfers and 7 days’ car hire.

A river runs through it

See :

For those who enjoy burbling brooks and the feeling of being surrounded by water, the brand new ZouZouni villa in Halikeri, a quiet hamlet near Fiscardo, on Cephalonia, is ideal. The villa has a fabulous inside-outside swimming pool which enables guests to step straight from their bedroom into the water, while enjoying uninterrupted views out across the sea. The brand new secluded bolthole for two uses natural local materials and is painted in a traditional burned orange colour, combined with strikingly modern floor-to-ceiling glass doors, slate tiles and chrome finishes across open plan living areas.
Price: Seven nights from £900 pp, including return flights (ex Heathrow, Gatwick and Manchester), transfers and 7 days’ car hire.

Afloat on dry land


Surrounded by sea on three sides, and located on the tiny pedestrianised island of Solvalye, guests can even sit in their Jacuzzi bathroom – in probably the largest bathroom in Turkey – with direct views out to sea across the Gulf of Fethiye. With a ‘seascape’ from virtually every window, water babies of all ages will love the private beach from where they can swim out to ruins of settlements dating from Roman times. Or use the sea kayaks to paddle literally around the island, or use the dinghy that is moored in the private jetty to explore further afield.
Price: Seven nights from £583 pp based on six sharing, including return flights (ex Heathrow, Gatwick and Manchester), transfers and 2 days’ car hire.
