Cottage | 1 bedrooms | sleeps 2
The Granary is the most compact of the three Sakli Vadi cottages. The cottage nestles in it’s own garden behind high walls for absolute privacy. At the western end is a rock garden with a myriad of flowering plants and shrubs.
The patio is on three levels. On the higher level there is plenty of room to lie out on the sunloungers next to the small plunge pool. Below the pool is a terrace with an enormous moveable sun shade, with comfotable chairs to just relax and read or chat. Then, step down under the pergola into a private terrace where dining chairs and tables are provided for those quiet, leisurely meals and peaceful sundowners. On this lower terrace, under the pergola, is a traditional Turkish fireplace with bench seats. The fireplace is fitted with a barbecue and is the ideal place to wile away those long summer evenings after a quiet dinner.
The accommodation consists of an entrance hall into the fully fitted kitchen. Off the kitchen is the shower room. Also leading off the kitchen are double doors into the combined lounge and double bedroom. One of the period features of this cottage is the corner hearth. These large fireplaces were used to generate both warmth and to cook on in years gone by.

The Granary garden and terrace are very private, with lots of well established flowers and bushes. The Granary has it's own small plunge pool on a patio area above the terrace.
The stereo systems are stored at another location and are available on request. The stereo systems are suitable for iPods and MP3 players only and not CDs.
Sakli Vadi is a small family owned and run, fully independent tourism company. We don't have any fixed changeover days and we work around the flights and dates which best suit you our clients. We can arrange car hire (delivered to and collected from the cottages) and airport transfers, if required.
We ask our clients to pay 50% up front to confirm their bookings and the balance one month prior to arrival please. We accept UK cheques, ibanking transfers and we have a PayPal account if customers wish to use credit cards to pay. We have to unfortunately add 5% if clients wish to use PayPal, because of the commissions they charge us.
Once paid, both deposits and balances are non-refundable. This is because as soon as a deposit is paid, all other enquires for The Granary are then declined.
The Turquoise Coast/Lycia region
The region is steeped in ancient history. The city of Xanthos was in ancient times capital of Lycia. As well as ancient historical sites, there are lots of places of interest to visit.
Our nearest large town is Fehtiye. It has a central fish and vegetable market, where you can pick your fish and have it cooked straight away by one of the many restaurants that surround the market. On Tuesday's the travelling market comes to Fethiye and sets up on both sides of the river, where you can buy anything from cabbages to carpets ! It is well worth a visit and don't forget to haggle on the prices !
There are other towns further afield such as Dalyan, Kas and Kalkan which are worth the drive. If you go to our web site and click the "Around Sakli Vadi" link, there is detailed information of places to visit in the area.
There are many ancient sites such as Xanthos, Kadyanda, Tlos, Letoon and many others. The areas beaches, with one exception are pebbles. They are in the main kept spotlessly clean and tidy.
Towering above the Kaya Valley is the Baba Dag mountian. This is the site from which the hang gliders launch. You can see them all year round and the annual international festival is held in Oludeniz. If you want a thrilling flight have a go ! In the Kaya Village is the Ghost Town. This is worth a visit. The Ghost Town was featured in Louis de Berniers book "Birds Without Wings".
