The Turquoise Coast/Lycia region
Kozalak is situated just 4 minutes walk from the village center of Uzumlu. Perfect location for those wanting a peaceful holiday but with the knowledge you are in the heart of the Village, with the benefit of not having to hire a car unless your wanting to explore the surrounding area then you can hire a car on a daily bases. Kozolak is not a commercial built location, Kozalak was a abandoned site that we as company decided to renovate and bring the beauty back to the site. It's rustic, charming, amazing views and friendly relaxed atmosphere.
Uzumlu has plenty to offer in the way of amenities locally, Bakery, Butchers, Restaurants, Bars, Markets, Pharmacy local clinic and our lovely market on a Friday. The joy of Uzumlu is we have many expats in the Village and yet it has retained its local rural charm. Sheep herders taking their sheep from one location to another, tractors still driving through the main square, houses\ Donkeys still being ridden
The local restaurants always have evening events like Turkish nights with fire dancers. Elvis Presley nights, darts nights and many more activities if this is what you are looking for. Kozalak has sunset Tapas evening on the large pool terrace and the restaurant caters for Mediterranean foods from all over the world and fresh fish every night.
Uzumlu is truly unique in every way, forest walks, historical sites so if your looking for a real taste of Turkey Uzumlu is the place for you.
Calis Beach is now a very popular holiday resort on Turkey's "turquoise coast" - and the crystal clear deep blue seas explain that name easily. But for Calis, it is not so easy as "Calis" means work in Turkish and that reveals a little of it's history. It hasn't always been a holiday destination - Calis Beach was "Work beach" where a small railway ran across the beach to the jetty (where Sat Restaurant now is at the far south end of the beach) with loads of chromium, mined inland. Those days are well in the past now and the only work done on Calis Beach nowadays is applying the sun cream - Calis is reported to have around 300 days of sun each year - and the beach is lined almost from end to end with restaurants serving superb Turkish cuisine and international favourites. The pedestrianised Calis promenade is the place to watch the simply stunning Calis sunsets.
Fethiye is one of Turkey's well-known tourist centres and is especially popular during the summer.
In the last ten years Fethiye has become a magnet for British citizens. Apart from its climate and natural beauty, the Britons are attracted by its less expensive lifestyle and the hospitality of the local people. The British population in Turkey is between 34,000 and 38,000. As a result of the large British population and the high numbers of Britons going there for holiday, Fethiye-Öludeniz was chosen as the best tourism centre in the world by The Times and The Guardian newspapers in 2007. Over 7,000 British citizens permanently live in Fethiye, while approximately 600,000 British tourists visit the town every summer.
The Fethiye Museum, which is very rich in ancient and more recent artifacts, displays and testifies to the successive chain of civilizations that existed in the area, starting with the ancient Lycians.
Fethiye is also home to the Tomb of Amyntas, a large and beautiful tomb built in 350 BC by the Lycians. What makes this tomb very unique is its massive size and beautiful carvings. Fethiye Tours, Fethiye Excursions
Some of the other historical sites worth visiting are: Kadyanda Ancient City, Kayakoy- old Greek town, Afkule, Gemiler and Aya Nikola. Most popular touristic towns of Fethiye are: Oludeniz, Calis Beach area, Hisaronu and Ovacik.[
Kayaköy (Greek: ???????, Levissi or Greek: ???????????, Karmylissos, although modern English usage seems to be Karmylassos) is a village 8 km south of Fethiye in southwestern Turkey where Anatolian Greek speaking Christians lived until approximately 1923. The ghost town, now preserved as a museum village, consists of hundreds of rundown but still mostly intact Greek-style houses and churches which cover a small mountainside and serve as a stopping place for tourists visiting Fethiye and nearby Ölüdeniz.
It was built on the site of the ancient city of Carmylessus in the 18th century. It experienced a renewal after nearby Fethiye (known as Makri) was devastated by an earthquake in 1856 and a major fire in 1885. After the Greco-Turkish War, Kayaköy was largely abandoned after a population exchange agreement was signed by the Turkish and Greek governments in 1923. Many of the buildings were damaged in the 1957 Fethiye earthquake.
Its population in 1900 was about 2,000, almost all Greek Christians; however, it is now empty except for tour groups and roadside vendors selling handmade goods and items scavenged from the former village. However, there are a selection of houses which have been restored, and are currently occupied.
An abandoned Church
Today Kayaköy village serves as a museum and is a historical monument. Around 500 houses remain as ruins and are under the protection of the Turkish government, including two Greek Orthodox Churches, which remain the most important sights of the ghost town. There is a private museum on the history of the town. In the middle of the village stands a fountain source from the 17th century. Kayaköy was adopted by the UNESCO as a World Friendship and Peace Village.

Ye?ilüzümlü (ye?il = green, üzüm = grapes) takes its name from the grapes which have been cultivated for centuries on this verdant plain. From these grapes are produced wine, sweets and grape syrup, mostly for home consumption but partly to sell. Because these are not mainly produced for sale, they retain their natural taste, very different from commercial products.
The people of Ye?ilüzümlü persist with their 'Dastar' or shawl weaving, a tradition which is unique to the area. There are at present perhaps 200 working looms, and dozens of shops selling both their own produce and that of their neighbours. In addition to the weaving they offer home-made wine and sweets to local and foreign visitors.
