The Turquoise Coast/Lycia region
This stretch of the Turkish coastline is known as the Turkish Riviera or Turquoise Coast. The area around Fethiye is one of Turkeys most beautiful, offering a perfect mix of beach resorts, mountain scenery and small rural villages. Lycia is the historical name of the Teke peninsula, which cuts into the Mediterranean on Turkey's southern coast giving an average of 300 days of sunshine a year. The mountains rise steeply from the wooded shore and tiny bays, giving beautiful views and varied walking. The Lycians absorbed Greek culture, and were later conquered by the Romans, the "LYCIAN WAY" starts here and is one of the worlds most famous walks, it follows the coast for 509km and ends in Antalya. Probably for serious walkers only, but offers some fabulous views of the coastline and the opportunity to see some of the real Turkey.
Saklikent is 50 km away from Fethiye and is a natural gorge, 18km long and reaches 600m in places. It is a unique place to visit, where the ice cold water comes down from the mountains, with mountaineering, trekking, rafting and swimming possible.
Yakapark is near Saklikent where you can sample the local trout in tranquil surroundings. The restaurant area is shaded by ancient trees with small rivers and springs cooling the air around you.
Tlos is 45km away from Fethiye and is one of the principal cities of the Lycian Federal Union. It was founded around 2000 B.C. there are ruins of a castle on top of the acropolis, remains of a Roman gymnasium, baths and a large theatre with many detailed carvings. Other Lycian cities are Pinara and Cadianda.
The Dalaman River begins in the Kocas Mountain and is 229 km long, alongside the river are the famous mud baths where you can cover yourselves with mud and let it dry in the sun. Further up the river you can go rafting and where the river meets the sea is Turtle beach, which is a protected area for the nesting turtles.
If you wish to go further afield you can visit Pamukkale & Ephesus reputed to be the 8th wonder of the world, it is a 2 day trip but well worth it.
OLU DENIZ used to be three separate villages, Ovacik, Hisaronu and Belcekiz, and covers an extensive and varied terrain, separated by hills and woods, thus catering for all tastes. The villa is in Ovacik which nestles below the Babadag Mountain, Ovacik means " little plain " and is caressed by cool sea breezes which provide some relief from the hot summer sun. It commands fine mountain views and if you have an early holiday you might still see some snow on top of the mountain.
The famous Olu Deniz beach with its stunning blue lagoon is renowned as the most beautiful beach in Turkey, the warm sea is a turquoise blue and just invites you in. It is only a short bus ride away by Dolmus from the villa, its a fantastic service, they are cheap and run every few minutes in the high season. The lagoon and surrounding area is in a conservation area so no high rise hotels, and is probably the most photographed beach in Turkey. The lagoon is like a large lake, very calm, ideal for children with its gently shelving waters, it is surrounded by 3/4 small sandy beach's, which all have sunbeds, toilet and restaurant facilities.
On the main part of the beach you will find many small shops, eating places and bars, in the evening the bars offer a variety of different music and entertainment.
Olu Deniz has become something of a Mecca for paragliding, and enthusiasts come from all over the world to take part in the sport. Towards the end of the season, usually around October there is a big paragliding competition, which is worth seeing as there are numerous para gliders in the air at one time. It is possible for anyone to take a tandem flight with an experienced pilot from the top of Babadag mountain, landing on the beach at Olu Deniz, an experience not to be missed.
FETHIYE is about 10 mins away from the villa by bus and is a mixture of market town, port and holiday resort. On the hill above Fethiye is a castle built for the Knights of Saint John and there are 2 simple rock tombs on the eastern face of the hill. By the harbour is Telmessos Antic Theatre constructed in the roman period and had a capacity for seating 5000, it was discovered in1993 and concerts for about 1500 people are held in the summer months. Every Tuesday there is a huge open air market near the marina selling everything from clothes, shoes, household goods, gifts and food. I think it has the largest fruit and veg market I have seen, and everything is very fresh. The harbour and marina is bordered by palm tree lined promenades and back streets filled with shops, bars and restaurants, yeilding bargains, gastronomic delights and bustling night life.
The fish market is well worth a visit, buy your fish and one of the small restaurants will cook it for you with salad and everything to accompany it. Next to the Fish market is a small fruit and veg market, open every day, if you want fresh produce at a good price.
OVACIK is a quieter village, up in the hills above Fethiye, but the villa is only a few minutes walk from local bars, restaurants and small supermarkets, a lot of the restaurants now provide evening entertainment so you don't have to go far for a great evening, the villa is ideally situated between Olu Deniz beach and the main town of Fethiye. On the main road only a few minutes walk away there is a new Turkish Bath, a couple of Barber shops for the men, and a local beauty salon for the ladies. For a much livelier resort you can walk into Hisaronu with its wide choice of shops, restaurants, late night bars and entertainment, they also have a market every monday. Near to Hisaronu is the deserted village of Kayakoy which was a Greek settlement founded at the beginning of the 14th century. It was evacuated during the Turkish-Greek war of 1919-1923 hence it's nickname of The Ghost Town. Its well worth a visit and the more energetic of you can walk there through the pine forests, they have started to renovate some of the buildings and there are a few nice restaurants down there if you wish to eat in peaceful surroundings.
There are many local activities, they include paragliding from Babadag Mountain, people come from all over the world to glide over the turquoise waters of the lagoon from atop of the mountain, river rafting, water-ski-ing, scuba diving, snorkelling, sailing & yatching, mountaineering and horse riding, plus visits to various interesting Greek and Roman archaeological sites, and the famous ' Butterfly Valley ' .For walkers you can join the famous Lycian way in Hisaronu, it is 509km long and ends in Antalya, a chance to see some of the real Turkey with beautiful views over the commanding coastline. For those of you who enjoy boat trips, you can catch them from the main beach at Olu Deniz or Fethyie harbour, a popular one is the 12 - island boat trip, most of them go out all day, include lunch and plenty of stops for swimming and snorkelling.
A great activity for kids is a small NEW AQUAPARK only 5 to 10 mins walk away from the villa towards Fethiye.

"Don't miss out on this outstanding Villa!"
My husband and I chose Olu Deniz as our wedding venue, and having found the Villa Suzie booked it for a week prior to the wedding date for us and our combined family. The villa is located in Ovacik which merges into Hisaronu and then Olu Deniz. Don't expect sea views from the villa or surrounding area, but do expect beautiful mountain scenery!
What a fantastic choice we made. It was absolutely perfect in every way, fitting the needs of all three generations staying at the villa. It's in a great location just minutes away (walking) from the main roads which is bustling with restaurants and shops. The slightly bigger supermarket, Azda, is about a 15 minute walk, but don't expect a huge choice of meat to buy, though pretty much everything else is available. If you are taking young adults with you (3 of ours are in the early 20's), the nightlife we are told, is fantastic – lots of night clubs – 20 minutes, or thereabouts, walk away. In addition, we found the Turkish people to be very friendly, helpful and their service exceptionally outstanding.
We didn't hire a car for the duration, but discovered that at the bottom end of the villa road, and on the main road, is a button you press for a taxi. They almost arrive by magic, they are so quick! Therefore if you want to get down to the beach front, it takes about 10 minutes for about 25-30 Turkish Lira, but remember to hold onto your seat, they drive pretty quick!
The villa itself has everything that you could possibly want. For example plastic crockery for outside eating which is great for unwanted broken glass or plates around the pool area. The villa is great for entertainment too! We used the downstairs games room one night, having an hilarious time using all the equipment, and on another occasion, the night before our wedding, had a BBQ with our family and some of our friends who had already arrived for the wedding the next day. Great evening we had with about 15 of us.
Karen, the lady who looks after the villa for Sue and provides Airport transfers, is absolutely fantastic and a credit (for want of a better word) to Sue! You can't go wrong asking her for any assistance and she is so prompt in responding. Sue herself was brilliant too. We booked the villa about 6 months prior, and she constantly kept us informed with valuable information prior to travelling to Turkey.
My final word – Villa is HIGHLY RECOMMENDED! Don't lose out.
Thank you very much for your brilliant review of the villa and surrounding area, it is greatly appreciated. We try very hard to keep our guests happy and informed of everything they may need to have a great holiday, and Karen works hard on our behalf when they are there. So pleased you had a wonderful time and a great wedding, and hope you may visit us again sometime.
