Bodrum Peninsula, Turkey

It has yachts, models, and Russian billionaires just like St. Tropez, but Bodrum also has jaw-dropping ancient Greek and Roman ruins.

Authentic digs: Check in to one of Amanruya's 36 minimalist cottages (all with private pools). They resemble ancient village dwellings but are way more comfy.

History lesson: Tap into the region's past at the ancient Greek city of Ephesus, a three-hour drive away; the ruins are some of the most well-preserved in Asia Minor.

Fruit of the sea: Head to the picturesque village of Gümüşlük, where excellent eateries including Yakamoz dish out freshly prepared fish right at the water's edge.
