In recent years we had welcome many guests. Like myself, the people who come here for the first timeare enchanted by the extraordinary scenery, the beautiful surroundings and the Turkish Culture here in rural Saklikent. It's always nice weather, the villas are clean and well priced and you stay in a safe area where the doors, so to speak, can be left open.
In Saklikent Park not far from the Turquoise Coast means that you are in authentic area which is not much visited by tourists. You will learn the rural life of Turkey and enjoy the impressive nature and the real Turkish life. The colorful and friendly people make your stay a great experience.
Good food & drinks
You can eat delicious trout in the Yakapark, where the greatest trout farms are but also along the road from Kadıköy to Saklikent Gorge, you can eat a fish or köfte (meat balls) or other grilled dishes. You will also find there the Gözleme (pancake) and the best Turkish snow ice (kar şerbeti).
Bars can be found in Saklikent gorge but also in Yakapark. In Seydikemer you can eat delicious food in the Esenti restaurant with great views over the city and in Fahti's bar along the river you can unwind with an Efes or an alcoholic drink with snack.
towns & villages
Saklikent park is centrally located. The city Seydikemer is 13 km away, Fethiye 25 km away and sights such as Girmeler caves Gizlikent waterfall, Saklikent gorge, the ancient city of Tlos and the Yakapark even 5 km away from the park.

The Turkish Aegean Coast region
Lycian & Turquoise Coast
Our villa is in a very quiet location, with uninterrupted views of the valley to the front and mountains to the sides. The site also backs onto protected forest land ideal for walks and picnics.
Authentic Turkish village life can be experienced firsthand in Kadikoy village just 2 minutes drive away. There, supplies can be purchased in the local shops or even delivered to your villa.
If you want to enjoy some home cooked Turkish food delivered to your villa, this can be easily arranged with ourselves or our onsite representative.
At the traditional Turkish roadside Locantas, you can watch the locals as they prepare your food - trout, BBQ meat or the wonderful vegetarian Turkish meze starters.
The immediate area around the villa is perfect for exploring, walking, climbing and bird and wildlife watching whatever your level of fitness and experience.
Saklikent Gorge - This is the second largest gorge in Europe and only 10 minutes drive from our villa. It is 20km long and there are suspended walkways that let you walk for miles along it. There are many walking trails here of various difficulties. Alternatively you can sit in one of the traditional Turkish lounges which are suspended 0.5m above the ice-cold running waters and shaded by fig trees while eating the freshly caught trout which they serve. For the more adventurous, there is white water rafting and mud baths! A great treat for the kids is staying in one of the tree houses which you can hire for the night (9 pounds per person per night for dinner, bed and breakfast at current rates). Again, this can be booked through us prior to your leaving home or arranged once you arrive at Villa Carreta.
Tlos (10 minutes away)- This is probably the oldest city in Lycia. Parts of the ancient Lycian citadel can be seen on the acropolis hill, along with the ruins of a Byzantine fortress, numerous rock-strewn tombs, a Roman stadium, amphitheatre and baths. This site is easily seen from our garden and vice versa! Just past this is Mountain Lodge where you can pop in for a drink or book an evening meal. It does does lovely food in a wonderful setting with a pool and play area for the kids.
Just past Tlos and just 15 minutes away from Villa Carreta, are the local trout farms where lunch is served in traditional turkish seating areas underneath huge, old trees. The Yakapark farm is a superb place to spend a hot afternoon. The many running streams that run through it provide natural air conditioning, and keep the area cool, no matter how hot the weather is.
Patara (45 minutes) - This was the port of Xanthus and is now an important archaeological site and protected area. Patara beach is a white sand beach with dunes and has been recently voted the best beach in the world by The Sunday Times. Our kids (and us) adore this beach - the waves are great fun for jumping over and you can even body-surf here. It is a huge expanse of sand, surrounded by mountains with one lovely beach bar.
Kalkan is 10 minutes further on from Patara and makes a great full day trip out from Villa Carreta. This gorgeous seaside town has a beautiful bay and a wonderful old centre with winding cobbled streets and many fascinating shops selling carpets, jewellery, tiles etc. I can spend many a happy hour (and quite a lot of money) wandering around here!
Fethiye (40 minutes away) - This is a busy fishing town with a wonderful fish market, Turkish baths, traditional rug and kilm shops, marina with boat trips out to the islands in the bay. Lycian tombs are carved into the cliff face behind the town.
Skiing - The season is from mid December to mid April.
Pinara (30 miles) - This is the most spectacular of all the ancient cities in Lycia. The pinkish rock face is full of tombs unfortunately inaccessible to everyone but experienced climbers.
Xanthus (30 miles) - Ancient Lycian ruins.
