The Turquoise Coast/Lycia region
The Turquoise coast is rich in history and has a stunning coastline. There are several ancient sites within driving distance. It is also home to some of Turkey's most beautiful beaches and amazing landscapes. The climate is hot in summer, warm in spring and autumn, and mild in winter.
The nearby towns of Calis and Fethiye are well-developed tourist resorts with great shopping, restaurants and bars. There's a huge beach at Calis. The pretty town of Gocek with its upmarket shops and restaurants is a short drive away. Explore the stunning bays around Gocek by gulet. For those interested in history, the ancient towns of Tlos and Xanthos are not far.
The unspoilt village of Ciftlik is perfect for a relaxing holiday, yet is only minutes away from great beaches and the popular resorts of Calis and Fethiye. There are good local amenities and excellent transport links. The dolmus (minibus) stop is a two minute walk from the villa and runs approximately every hour to Calis and Fethiye. From Fethiye you can take a dolmus to most places in the area.
The nearest beach is a few minutes' drive, but there are prettier, uncrowded beaches about 10 minutes away.
Fethiye is about a 15 minute drive. The old town has a maze of alleyways with traditional shops and restaurants. There is also an attractive promenade with marina, plenty of bars and restaurants.
Calis - 10 minutes away. This is a well-developed tourist area on the edge of Fethiye. It has a long beach, plenty of bars / restaurants, and Sultan's Aquapark - a perfect day out for the kids!
Oludeniz - the most famous beach in Turkey is only 20 minutes away. Fantastic place to go paragliding from Babadag mountain, do some watersports or just chill out!
Explore the Turquoise coast on one of the numerous boat tours from Fethiye or Gocek. See the stunning coastline and swim in secluded bays
Saklikent - walk through the river up the 'hidden gorge'. Breathtaking! About 40 minutes' drive.
Tlos and Xanthos - cities of great antiquity. Each about 45 minutes' drive
Dalyan - visit the thermal springs and mud baths.
Local activities include diving, fishing, paragliding, watersports, sailing, jeep safari, horse riding.

"The villa is just everything a family could wish for"
We were a family of 12 and we had the time of our life in this wonderful villa. The house is magnificent and it had large bedrooms, nice kitchen, game room and living room and the swimming pool was very good. In fact it was better than we had hoped for. Mr. Halil assisted us in every way and our neighbour took care of cleaning the swimming pool. The villa is near Fethiye which is a nice town with good restaurants, nice hamam, and a lovely harbour. It is just nice. And then you are not far from nice places like the beautiful town of Kalkan, Saklikent, Oludeniz the famous beach and the ruin of Tlos. And then it is magnificent to sail around the stunning coastline and swim in secluded bays.

"A lovely Villa highly recommended"
My extended family (9 with teenagers) had a wonderful week at Villa Ruya. The arrangements with owner Mert, who was very helpful, were very straight forward and managed via intranet and e mails. Mert contacted us by phone at the villa to ensure we had all we needed and offer suggestions.
The villa is private, high quality in design and furnishing with all we needed, intranet and TV for our fix of the olympics!, cool bedrooms with air con and balconies for great views.We spent hours in the pool which was cleaned daily. The villa is in a quiet village, so hire a car to explore, the local roads and directions easy to use.
We recommend visiting Saklikent gorge , Olendeniz and Calis beach and Goeck harbour.
By far our favourite trip was hiring a private boat - the Aegean Soul for the day, snorkelling in clear waters, pretty bays and a fresh bar b q on board- captain Denis spoke excellent english having lived in Bristol for some time.
Highly recommend the Villa Ruya and staying in this part of Turkey for a relaxing holiday with plenty to see and do.
