Following a breathtaking and at times stomach-jolting journey along the Lycean coastline, Deniz Feneri Lighthouse is worth every hairpin bend.

This place oozes tranquillity, even though the vibrant town of Kas, with its market, tea shops and bustling harbour, is just a 10-minute drive away.

The 27 natural-stone apartments have sublime views of the sea and Taurus mountains. For the ultimate in seclusion, opt for the Pool House, which, yes, has its own pool.

Wander through olive trees to the waterfront where you can snorkel or grab a kayak, or simply sip fresh apricot juice on your sun lounger. End the day with a hammam massage or relax while you watch the sun sink over the infinity pool.

WOW FACTOR: At night, the waterfront rock terrace transforms into an intimate candlelit setting where you can tuck into meze under the stars.
