Stanley Baines review 1 Nov 2009
1. What was the most memorable or exciting part of your vacation?
A really functional villa and in a perfect setting for families.
2. What tips would you give other travelers booking this vacation?
Try to buy produce at the local farmers markets and eat as much as possible at home. The restaurants are extremely expensive and the quality of food and choice very poor.
3. Did you feel that your vacation benefited local people, and minimized impacts on the environment?
Very much, they take every opportunity to ®"fleece" the vacationmaker.
4. Finally, how would you rate your vacation overall?
Very good, the owners of the villa and the service was as good as one could ever expect.

Many thanks for these comments. I feel that perhaps they are a little harsh on Kas which in relation to other vacation destinations around Turkey actually has relatively reasonable prices in the main. One can still sit down for a soup and basic meal for around £5 per person for example; namely at Seckin Restaurant.
Some restaurants indeed are expensive, some bars too are very expensive, but these are not necessarily run by what we would term 'local people', those are more the simpler, no frills establishments which are still cheap and community based. The local fresh produce market too, as mentioned in the review, offers great quality produce at low prices.
