Anchor Villa is a beautifully appointed 4 bedroom holiday home in the village of Ciftlik on the Mediterranean coast of Turkey, only 45 minutes drive from Dalaman Airport. With a large open-plan living/dining room, fully fitted kitchen, two en-suite luxury double bedrooms, and two bedrooms with single beds, it offers flexible accommodation for up to eight people. The villa enjoys wonderful views to mountains and the sea.
In the living room there are two large teal three seater sofas and a matching brown armchair with footstool. The 41” HD television with HiFi cinema surround-sound system plays all-region DVDs and audio CDs and you can also connect your iPhone, iPad etc. There is a dining table and chairs and a white porcelain dinner service which will enable you to dine eight in comfort. The kitchen adjoins the living/dining room and is fully equipped with a large fridge/freezer, microwave oven, dishwasher, electric fan-assisted oven, and a four-ring gas hob. We've provided a full range of utensils, non-stick anodised aluminium pans, sharp cooking knives, roasting pans, and oven-to-table ware.
On the middle floor there are two air-conditioned double bedrooms with en-suites. The top floor has two further air conditioned bedrooms. One is a children's room with a two single beds. The other also has two single beds which can easily be joined to form a king-size double when required. All bed linen and towels are provided, including Turkish pool towels which dry quickly between uses. Each bedroom has a hair drier and an English power socket adapter. The top floor bedrooms share a bathroom on the same floor.
There are sliding patio doors opening on to a sheltered outdoor dining area with wooden table and 8 comfortable chairs. There is also a traditional Turkish barbecue. Around the private pool, from which there are spectacular mountain views, there are sunbeds, recliners and umbrellas.
This villa is the perfect combination for us between providing a quiet village feel and being just a short bus or car ride to small and large towns and places of interest. If you're after a busy resort with noisy bars and nightclubs Anchor Villa is probably not for you. If, however, you like to escape from it all and have a quiet, relaxing holiday but with plenty of things to do available nearby then Anchor Villa is perfect. There is a city bus 2 minutes walk away from the villa which will take you into Calis Beach or Fethiye and dolmus (minibuses) go frequently from the main road which is less than 10 minutes walk downhill from the villa. A car is not totally necessary but it is recommended, particularly if you like to go further afield

About this location
The Turkish Aegean Coast region
The Turquoise Coast, often called the Turkish Riviera, offers breathtaking mountain views and the magnificent colour of the sea that gives the area its name. It offers something for everybody with ancient sites, inland walking including sections of the Lycian Way, lovely beaches, friendly, welcoming bars and restaurants and water sports for the more active holidaymaker. This coupled with the glorious climate make the Turquoise Coast the ideal holiday destination.
Ciftlik is a charming and peaceful rural village where you will see goats grazing in nearby fields and the locals tending to their animals, crops and greenhouses. Uncomplicated and tranquil, Ciftlik is simply perfect for relaxation. Our villa enjoys spectacular mountain views and if you look out towards the horizon you will find the perfect turquoise sea and views of Fethiye. Ciftlik is set on a gentle hill above Calis and still holds the village's natural charm but benefits from a shopping street and a market day. It is the perfect place to relax and unwind leaving all the stresses and strains of modern life behind. There is an indescribable tranquillity surrounding the villa.
The village, about 10 minutes walk away, has a few shops. There is a food shop called Melissa which sells most of your everyday needs and will deliver if you don't have a car. You can buy a little more than just the basic food provisions and it also sells personal items such as toothpaste and soap and kitchen items like paper towels. The prices are surprisingly good here, often no more than the larger supermarkets. The bread is wonderful and comes from the bakery at the end of the road near to the D400. Worth a visit if you have a car. There is a pide shop in the middle of the village which is well worth visiting. Pide is a bit like Turkish pizza and you can choose your toppings from a list of things like cheese, tomato, meat etc. Some say it's the best pide in the whole area. We love it. We've recently had a post office open up in the village for the first time! Oh, it's all happening here... I've yet to see any evidence of any post though! Thursday is market day where you'll see stallholders selling fruit and vegetables and various other items. The covered market area is opposite Melissa set back from the high street.
A local dolmus service runs from Ciftlik's shopping street to Fethiye via Calis Beach making all local amenities within easy reach. The city bus, which run only every hour or two from the top of our road, is air conditioned and comfortable and will drop you off at the Dolphin Roundabout in Calis.
Calis is one of the most popular tourist centres of the area with seafront bars and restaurants scattered along the charming palm tree lined promenade. This lovely quiet resort is most famous for its breathtaking sunsets and welcome cooling breezes. The beach is an unspoiled 4 km stretch of sand and shingle and is one of the natural breeding grounds of the Caretta (loggerhead) marine turtles who come to lay their eggs in the sand at night.
On a Sunday there is a traditional market, offering you a vast array of products from clothes to carpets, jewellery, household goods, real fakes(!!) and wonderful spices.
There is a small Aqua park situated close to Calis beach. http://www.sultansaquacity.com/
You can also take a water taxi ride, which passes down the reed lined canal behind Calis Beach promenade and opens out into the bay. This taxi takes you to Fethiye.
Fethiye is a bustling town with a large marina and magnificent natural harbour offering a great combination of ancient sites and modern convenience. It enjoys breathtaking views of the Mediterranean Sea with a wonderful waterfront promenade. There are restaurants, bars and seating areas around the harbour for you to relax and watch the world go by while enjoying this lovely view.
Fethiye has a large yacht harbour where you can hire a boat for a full day or just a few hours. You can go on a large boat with lots of other people or, if you're feeling like a bit of a quieter trip, you can hire a small boat all to yourselves. You get a few hours on the boat, a stop for a swim (so take your costume and a towel!) and they often will cook a fabulous barbecue of fish or/and chicken and wonderful Turkish salads. On most of the trips the food will be included too although you will have to buy your own drinks. On the larger boats there are sunbeds to top up your tan and covered areas if keeping out of the sun is your preference.
The Paspatur (Old City), is one of the most colourful shopping and entertainment areas of the town and you will find a 400 year old traditional Turkish Bath (Hamam), many restaurants and bars, and various shops selling souvenirs and local goods.
The amazing rock tombs can be clearly seen carved into the mountain overlooking Fethiye town. You can walk up to the main tomb and see lovely rooftop views of Fethiye and the harbour.
By the marina there is an amphitheatre which is worth a visit. There's often someone there acting as tour guide. He's not official shouldn't really be doing it so I'd recommend you just say no to him. He can't tell you anything you won't find in a guide book or online.
Between the amphitheatre and the rock tombs is the old ruined Ottoman castle. I don't yet know whether you can go up to it but you probably can.
On the outskirts of the town an open market is held on a Tuesday, selling a wide range of local goods including clothes, shoes and linens etc as well as local produce and spices and there are a number of stalls selling good fake “designer labelled goods". A fruit and vegetable market is also held on a Friday where local farmers gather to sell their freshly grown produce.
There are plenty of ancient sites to visit in and around Fethiye including ancient archaeological sites, a spectacular canyon and the abandoned village of Kayakoy. We have a folder in the house with more information on how and where to find these and many more places of interest.

Well where to start when sharing my thoughts on this home from home in a glorious, quiet village of ciftlik, fethiye? I visited the villa with our young son, baby girl, Turkish husband and his family … More
