4 week trip Turkey

Jump to last reply

I am planning a 4 week trip in May 2016 and am trying to workout the best way to do this.
I want to do the following
- 6 days Istanbul
- 7 day self guided hiking trip Fethiye to Patara ( Current idea but open to suggestions)
- 3 day gulet trip - looking at from Kas
- beach stay possible around Cirili
- 7-10 days driving around the country side near Antayla

I am trying to figure out the logistics of it all. I am considering hiring a car for a week after the gulet trip and driving down the coast to Antayla but where would I pick up the car? All the large hire car companies seem to have cars in Fethiye or Antalya.
Our main interests are culture, food, people,nature and beach but not being amongst the crowds of tourists.
We have been to Turkey before but only to Istanbul , ephesus .
I have thought about including Cappadocia but not sure if I will - besides the landscape and a balloon ride why else would you go there?
I always like the idea of the freedom of driving around through local villages and finding good places to eat. Is the Antayla area a good place to do this?
We will be flying in and out of Istanbul and will use internal flights to Dalman and return from Antayla but want to avoid having to backtrack.

Any suggestions would be appreciated.

Thanks
