The hustle and bustle of Istanbul is just an hour's boat ride from the Princes' Islands, an archipelago situated in the Sea of Marmara. The largest island, Büyük Ada, is tiny. With a glass of raki in your hand and a plate of grilled squid and sea bass in front of you, it's not difficult to appreciate the slightly old-fashioned charm of this paradise. Admire the old wooden houses and the luxuriant gardens, enjoy the welcome shade of the pine trees and take a gentle stroll to the island's monasteries and convents. The perfect place for a relaxing and memorable stay.
