The Turkish Aegean Coast region
Welcome to this exceptionally beautiful part of Turkey, where ancient civilisations have left their mark on the landscape, from the dramatic heights of the pine-clad Taurus Mountains to the turrquoise-blue waters of the Mediterranean.Words cannot adequately describe the magnificent beauty of this region.You alone will judge when you visit the area and you won't be disappointed. This stretch of the Turkish coastline is known as the Turkish Riviera or the Turquoise Coast. Summer temperatures average 30-40C with winters averaging 16C.
Places of Interest in the area
- Fethiye is a historical harbour town, which is worth a visit to see the ancient Lycian rock tombs, browse around the shops in the narrow streets of the old town or just admire the beautiful sunsets from one of the many restaurants or bars along the harbour. You can book boat tours of the 12 islands in Fethiye Bay or you can take a water-taxi to Calis beach, where there is also a waterpark. There is a large market in Fethiye every Tuesday.
- Oludeniz is famous for its blue lagoon and is the most photographed beach in Turkey.This is worth visiting in the evening also, to watch the paragliders descend onto the beach from mountains 6550 feet high, against the backdrop of beautiful sunsets. There are plenty of shops, bars and restaurants here also.The world paragliding championship is held here in October.
- Lots of organised excursions can be booked locally. The surrounding countryside is breathtaking... if you only book one trip, make it the truck safari. Other trips to enjoy are the gorge at Saklikent and the trip to the "Turkish Everglades" at Dalyan. Also worth a visit are the remains of ancient civilizations at Xanthos, Tlos, Patara and Ephesus.
- A few miles away by local bus is the ghost town of Kayakoy. This is the remains of a town vacated by the Greeks after the War of Independence in 1922. It is located on a hillside and it is fascinating to wander around the deserted houses and churches. It is a half-hour walk to the top of the hill behind the town. There you will be rewarded with breathtaking views of the coastline below. A few miles beyond Kayakoy is Gemiler Beach, reached by bus service or a taxi but worth the effort, as it's a stunning location overlooking St. Nicholas Island.
VILLA MICHAELMAS is a private, architect-designed, exceptionally well-equipped luxury villa in Ovacik , set in stunning scenery some 450 meters above Oludeniz (with its Blue Lagoon).There is a cooling summer breeze and beautiful views over Hisaronu and Ovacik to the surrounding mountains.The villa is close to Kayakoy, the Greek "ghost village" and setting for Louis De Bernière's "Birds without Wings".
Closer is the popular resort of Hisaronu with its weekly market; things come to life here after dark particularly, with all the restaurants, bars and clubs. The location of the villa , however, is well away from noise and traffic. The villa is 8kms from the bustling Turkish market town and harbour of Fethiye with its daily boat trips to the 12 islands and Calis beach town.The town has well-stocked modern supermarkets and a rich variety of smaller shops. The old quarter of Fethiye ( the Paspatur ) is particularly attractive and the lively Tuesday market is popular with visitors and locals.

"Relaxing and tranquil"
I have stayed at Villa Michaelmas in Ovacik several times over the past 4 years. The owners have furnished it carefully with a mix of antique and modern furniture to a very high standard, well above many other villas which are used for holiday rental. It is spacious and comfortable - the beds are the best I have ever slept in (including my own at home!). The villa is in a pleasant location set in a well kept garden with stunning views of the Babadag mountains and is handy for the local village - Hisaronu or the nearest large town - Fethiye. Olu Deniz is the closest beach and is a short drive or dolmus (bus) ride away. There are lots of excellent restaurants in the surrounding areas but a visit to the local markets will reward shoppers with delicious and cheap fruit and vegetables with which they may self cater. I have been coming to this area of Turkey for around 12 years and still have not experienced all there is to do , whether you like to laze in the sun around the pool or are the activity-junkie type who likes to be on the go, there is something here for you. I recommend Villa Michaelmas and the Fethiye area just as highly as I can. The owners have taken great care to supply all the creature comforts. You would not be disappointed with a visit to Ovacik.
We are confident that this is a reaction shared by many of Villa Michaelmas' guests. It is one of its best features.
