Photos and Description of this Kayaköy holiday villa

2 bed, 2 bath house, large private pool, established gardens close to amenities

Ozlem Evi is owned by a friendly and very hospitable local Turkish family.

The property is nestled at the bottom of the hills, overlooked by the ghostly ruins of an abandoned Greek Village perched on the hillside, the result of a forced poplualtion exchange between Greece and Turkey in the early 1920s.

These views can be appreciated from the private pool area, a welcome relief during the hot mediterranean summers.

The house has a large covered verandah area with dining table, a spacious open kitchen dining and living room and two bedrooms with a bathroom between.

It is a great family property and is one of the most centrally located holiday rentals in the Village, just a short walk to restaurants, local bus and markets.

A short bus ride will take you through the picturesque Valley and down the winding road to Gemiler Beach. Many come to this area to enjoy just this spectacular views of clear turquoise waters and pine forests with mountain backdrop and blue sky.

Kaya Village is located around the historic ruins of Levissi. The ruins lie nestled against the hillside, forming an open-air museum often reffered to as the “Ghost Town”. Levissi was abandoned following a population exchange between Greece and Turkey in the early 1920’s. Exploring the site via worn pathways weaving between houses and churches is a wonderful experience.

The ruins of Levissi were the inspiration for the Louis De Bernieres novel Birds Without Wings.

Car hire is not necessary but if guests are thinking about renting a car, it is a very good way to see the best of what the area has to offer. If guests are interested in particular in seeing the Lycian ruins scattered about the area then a car is recommended. Aircon in the car can be a welcome relief during the hottest months (July/August) so guest may wish to hire a car if they want to sightsee in comfort. Car hire is charged on a weekly rate or a daily rate for bookings less than a week.

The local transport in the area is the 'Dolmus' bus. Previous visitors to will be familiar with this system you can board the bus anywhere from the side of the road or waiting at a designated stop. Buses are regular and on time. Many characters are met on the Dolmus bus. A good cultural experience. The Kayakoy Dolmus travels direct to Fethiye Town, Gemiler and Olu-Deniz beaches every 1/2 - 1 hour and fares are between 3-7 Turkish Lira.

Guestbook comments from the manager

What a find this Villa is. In a quite corner of a great local village. Pure peace and quite. The grounds are amazing with plenty of room to play.

The swimming pool is perfect size with lots of room to relax next to it.

The pool is cleaned daily by the owner. Who is one of the most nicest people you could meet. Could not do enough for us, even pick the vegetables fresh for my son to eat

The villa itself if lovely and clean. Perfect size rooms. All finished to a very high traditional standard

The beds were so comfy

Had a great holiday

Wunderschöne Ferienvilla

  • 5 of 5

Wer ein Urlaubsquartier abseits der Touristenströme sucht, ist hier genau richtig.

Die saubere Villa hat eine große schattige Terrasse und einen großen Pool (4x10m) zur alleinigen Nutzung. Der freundliche Vermieter kommt 2x täglich und reinigt den Pool. Schön bewachsener Garten, freilaufende Hühner, Eichhörnchen, Schildkröten und Frösche sind zu sehen. Viele preiswerte und gute Restaurants im Ort. Mini-Markt des Vermieters in der Nähe. Fethiye und Ölüdeniz sind mit dem Dolmus oder dem PKW schnell erreichbar. Bootstouren, Paragliding und Anmietung eines Speedbootes (ohne Führerschein selber fahren!) sind zu empfehlen.

Die Vermittlungsagentur arbeitet sehr professionell, auf Nachfrage wurde sogar ein Internet-Stick besorgt.

Wir könne das Feriendomizil unbedingt weiter empfehlen und hoffen selber auch mal wieder zu kommen.

Kaya Village is located just 8km from the harbour Town of Fethiye in Southwest Turkey where the Mediterranean and Agean Oceans meet.The beautiful coastline is referred to as 'The Turquoise Coast'. The iconic Oludeniz beach is 10 km drive. The quieter Gemiler Beach bay is just 5 km away and both are accessible by local bus. The Lycian/Roman fortress ruins of Tlos and the stunning Saklikent Gorge are within 1 hours drive from Fethiye and are worth a visit as well as other historical sites, beaches, beauty spots and museums.

Kaya is 1 hour drive from Dalaman Airport and 3-4h from Antalya airport. Kaya Village has a wonderful selection of Restaurants ranging from upmarket Wine Houses to small family run locals where Turkish Village cuisine can be sampled. The Village itself is in the Kaya Valley, a flat area surrounded by mountains, natural pine forest and unspoilt beaches. Nearby Fethiye town has a big open Market day, an old bazaar type shopping area, marina and even a Roman theatre!
