We are escaping for the weekend to the small village of Hoşköy. With a pool in front of the house and the Marmara Sea beckoning below, this is a wonderful weekend escape. It is also in the heart of one of Turkey’s blossoming wine regions. The town is near Tekirdag, which is roughly 4 hours from Istanbul. The last hour of the drive consists of rolling hills covered by grape vines or olive trees. Roadside stands sell local honey, produce and herbs. Dirt roads pass through small villages tucked into the hillside. There are numerous wineries to visit and sandy beaches to explore. It is the perfect getaway!
