‘There’s nothing like discovering southwest Turkey by gulet. Rather than the usual hotels, and the coach journeys they tend to entail, these traditional timber schooners combine all the comforts with winningly romantic lines. You can watch the coast slip by from the spacious pillow-strewn stern deck, as the vessel delivers you within easy striking distance of ruin-scattered shores; in the case of places like Knidos, so that you can step straight into the standing remains. Then it’s back to the gulet for lunch and a swim in magical Mediterranean waters, perhaps followed by a doze, as we motor on to our next overnight stop – doubtless in another idyllic deserted cove. Truly, there is no better way of getting around Turkey’s world-beating archaeological sites.’
