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.

"Home from home in the sun"
Our holiday at this villa was perfect and met the needs of all of us , the youngest being 1 and the oldest being 79. The villa was spacious and well equipped and was comfortable and felt like home. It provides good entertainment in the form of a games room, television, DVD, play station and music system.
Location was great with easy access to local bars and restaurants and there was an regular dolmus bus service to the nearby towns of Hisonarou and Olu Deniz which were bustling without being kiss me quick.
The outside area was great during both the day and evening and we had a few nice evenings spent eating and drinking in the well kept grounds and pool area.
If you do have any concerns Karen and Pete are available to help when you are there, but the owner herself , Sue, makes the whole booking, arrival and departure process easy and is very helpful throughout. We will definitely be back.

"Perfect family villa in an ideal location for all amenities"
The villa is lovely and catered for our every need - there isn't anything unthought of! Simple things like a mobile phone with all the local supermarkets that deliver and restaurant numbers etc. preloaded in there made all the difference. The games room was a massive plus for the boys as they spent the whole time either in the pool or in there!! Our only minor criticism (and we are clutching at straws!) would be the size of the barbecue - rather small for a large party; perhaps a stone built one at the side of the villa would be perfect! Other than that, no complaints about the villa whatsoever!
Karen (villa manager) was absolutely brilliant and at the end of the phone to help when needed. We booked the jeep safari and paragliding trips through her - both of which were fantastic! Due to the public holidays, Karen wasn't able to organise a private boat trip for us as they were so expensive so we ended up booking through a guy who wandered into the garden called Mehmet! He owns his own boat and says he visits the villa regularly when new people arrive. To be fair, he was very genuine, very reasonably priced (£15pp for 12 of us); the boat was lovely; he, his wife and son were all very pleasant, the food was amazing and the trip fantastic. Overall, we would highly recommend him - we had a lovely day for a very reasonable price.
As we had to leave the villa early on our day of departure (a new family were arriving early afternoon and we weren't being picked up until 8pm) we booked a room at Monte Verde - a hotel just down the lane on the main road. They gave us a triple room for £32 from 12-8pm which suited us perfectly (there were 8 of us). The room was basic but the shower and a room to change was really all we needed as we spent the day by the pool (although one of the boys was poorly so spent the time sleeping in an air conditioned room which was a god send). It's not our type of place to stay for any length of time but was fine for the day and the food was nice.
There were no problems with the transfers - both families were picked up on time for the
journeys both ways.
Overall we had a fantastic holiday and would recommend this villa for families. More than 8 may feel a little over crowded - there are loads of beds,bedrooms and bathrooms on the upper 2 floors but the ground floor and kitchen aren't quite so large. Saying that, in the hot weather we never really spent much time indoors so wasn't an issue. Having the local supermarket deliver crates of beer, water, bottles of pop, large water bottles for the cooler and anything else you require was really helpful and they don't charge for delivery. Walking distance to all the local restaurants and bars and about a 15 minute walk into the centre of Hisoranu.
Our boys are 11, 12, 14 & 15 so can't really make comments for young children but of note there were loads if high chairs stored in the games room!!
I would definitely recommend the trips we did - just read the book in the villa for tips before you go.
Thanks Sue - brilliant pre and post holiday communication and a fabulous holiday.
Thank you for taking the time to write such a brilliant and detailed review of your stay at the villa, so glad the 2 families enjoyed the holiday and the trips you went on. I agree a brick built BBQ would be ideal, we have often discussed about where to put one, the only spare wall is by the children's pool so for the time being a portable one is all we can offer and that was the biggest one we could find.
It was a pleasure to have you as guests and hope you will return again some time in the future.

"Outstanding Villa close to all amenties"
Villa is well presented and in a good state of repair. The pool and gardens are well tended. Any minor issues are dealt with quickly by the villa owner's representative in Turkey. The villa is well situated close to shops and local restaurants. It is easy to walk into the main town or get a frequent bus into the main beach area. The beach is just outstanding.
The villa owner provides a lot of very useful information and services that make your holiday stress free. If we hadn't already been to this area twice I would definitely return to this villa without any hesitation and would recommend it to anyone. A really great holiday.
Thank you for your very positive review of the villa and surrounding area, so glad you enjoyed your holiday.
I know you have visited the area before, so very pleased you chose our villa for your stay.

"Fantastic Villa, great location!"
Villa Suzie is a wonderful Villa and is very well equipped for all ages, our family of 12 ranged from baby to grandparents and everyone had a fabulous holiday. The location was ideal for what we wanted from a holiday with shops and restaurants within walking distance and a friendly bus service to the beach or market. Karen the villa rep is great for local info and the trips offered are very well organised. We booked a trip to the Dalyan mud baths and were extremely impressed with the whole day & the value for money. We could not fault the transfers to and from the airport that were arranged for us, on time and very friendly. The communication with Sue,before and after our stay was great, she was extremely helpful. Villa Suzie is a wonderful holiday home and we would highly recommend to anyone. We are hoping to make another booking in the future!
Thank you for your review, so glad you all enjoyed your stay at the villa and the trips that are on offer. It was a pleasure to have you as guests and hope that you will return again sometime in the future.

Could not reccomend this Villa Suzie highly enough. Great pool and fantastic location.
My biggest piece of advice would be to speak to Karen almost as soon as you get there as her knowledge is encyclopedic. We booked two trips through Karen and they were the best days of the holiday. I would reccomend anyone to hire a boat for the day - we had the best fun and the lunch cooked on board was awesome.
The villa is located in perfect area - between Fethieye and Olu Deniz - both easily reachable by the wonderful dolmus services. The local shops are a delight and will deliver your shopping to the door (and us sometimes with the shopping) - The villa is located just up from main road of Ovacik and therefore is quiet and peaceful but within easy reach of anything you may need. The villa itself is was spotlessly clean with the addded bonus of a linen change midway through the holiday. The pool is cleaned every morning - Villa Suzie has thought of everything to make your holiday easy and totally stress free. PERFECT.
Thank you for such a good review of the villa and surrounding area, so glad you enjoyed your stay and the trips you went on. Karen tells me you were a pleasure to deal with so hope you will return for another stay at sometime.

"A week wasn't long enough...."
Wonderful villa - feels very private but within easy walking distance of restaurants, supermarkets, taxis or the dolmus to take you a bit further afield - but it's difficult to drag yourself away… More
Many thanks for your great review of the Villa, it is greatly appreciated. So glad you enjoyed your stay and hope you will return again in the near future.
