With its cobbled winding streets and pretty harbour, the Old Town of Side is delightful. The ancient site is perfect for leisurely exploration with its Temples of Apollo and Athena, and the remains of the Roman Baths that house an impressive collection of artefacts.

From the Old Town of Side, it is a short walk along the seafront promenade to the 5-star Raga Side Hotel, which, with just under 200 deluxe bedrooms, lends to a lovely group ambience for our bridge guests to meet up. You can relax on the private beach or on the terraces around the outdoor pool. Swim in the indoor pool, take a Turkish Hamam or steam bath, or treat yourself to a massage or treatment in the Spa (charge).

The hotel prides itself on its exceptional cuisine. Dinner and lunch are served in the elegant La Minute restaurant. There is an excellent choice from the buffet, or you can select from the menu and enjoy freshly cooked food direct to your table. During the day snacks or light lunches are available from the poolside bar or beach café and you can enjoy delicacies from the Patisserie. All this is included in your 24-hour ultra-all-inclusive package along with cocktails and drinks, served on the terraces and in the hotel’s bars.

You can expect the weather to be generally very good in November on the south coast of Turkey, our previous group enjoyed endless sunny days and temperatures mainly over 30 degrees!


Included in our package are two fabulous half day excursions:

  • We visit Antalya, the eastern gateway to the Turquoise Coast and enjoy a guided walking tour of this beautiful old town, as well as visiting the Duden Waterfall and enjoying a boat trip around the harbour and visit to the leather centre.
  • Our second excursion takes us to Alanya where we go up to the castle for a panoramic view across the red tiled ottoman villas and wide beaches. We enjoy a boat trip around the bay and 2 hours free time in this popular resort.


Refreshers Bridge is aimed at social bridge players, those who wish to improve their bidding and play, or those who simply want a friendly holiday with a smaller size group. We do not award EBU master points with these holidays, so the more hardened duplicate bridge players do not attend, therefore leading to a more social and easy-going atmosphere.

  • Qualified director & friendly host
  • Prizes awarded
  • Novice players catered for & encouraged
  • Electronic scoring and hand records provided
  • Interactive bridge seminars
  • Relaxed evening duplicate bridge sessions
  • Social après bridge


Double/twin share: £699
Single occupancy supplement: £10 per night
Deposit: £150

You can also extend your time in Turkey by adding on an extra one or two weeks stay. Jane and James Tullett will be staying on at the Raga Side Hotel for a further two weeks after the Refreshers holiday, and you are welcome to join them for an additional 7 or 14 nights. If you wish, and feel you have reached the required standard of play, you can take the opportunity to try out some sessions on our standard club bridge holiday. Please call to enquire.
Additional 7 nights: £400 per person
Additional 14 nights: £775 per person
