The Turquoise Coast/Lycia region
It is sometimes hard to believe that just 17 kilometres outside a resort like Fethiye you can still find tiny pockets of unspoilt Turkey. But it is here that you will find the sleepy rural village of Uzumlu and, on its outskirts, Villa Yasemin. There is a market in the village where you can buy fresh produce for home cooking. The nearest town is Fethiye ( 25 minutes away ) , which is a busy centre providing shops and services such as supermarkets and banks. It has a magnificent harbour, a wonderful promenade dotted with bars and restaurants and an interesting old town. Further along the coast is Oludeniz, an area designated as a National Park. It's beach sweeps along for 3 kilometres into a beautiful lagoon, perfect for a variety of water sports.
The nearest beach is Calis 20 minutes drive from the villa. You can take a ferry along the canal from Calis to Fethiye. There is a pleasant promenade with bars and cafes where you can have a drink while watching the fantastic sunsets.
Boat trips run from Fethiye to the various islands off the coast and Rhodes is accessible by Hydrofoil. Sailing, paragliding, scuba diving and white water rafting are all available in the local area. Ancient ruins from the Lycian period can be seen at Cadianda, Patara, Tlos,Letoon, Xanthos and Sidyma or take a walk along the famous Lycian Way. Visit www.lycianway.com to obtain maps and books before departing UK. The beautiful rural countryside provides a unique habitat for birds and wildlife.
The livelier resort of Hisonarou and Ovacik can easily be reached by car or Dolmus (minibus) if you are looking for nightlife.

"Relaxing and Peaceful"
We really enjoyed our stay at the villa. It was lovely to sit in a garden with the birds tweeting and not to have to battle to bag a sunlounger like you would at a hotel. The villa was very comfortable and had everything you would need. The nearby village was lovely as the people were friendly and the local restaurants served very tasty food and were very reasonable. We met a tortoise that was roaming in the garden and experienced a mini earthquake so the holiday had everything!

"A Wonderful Villa in a beautiful tranquil location, Perfect."
This was our first time in Turkey and it certainly won't be our last. If you want to get away from it all, in a location that offers, excellent accomodation, beautiful views,good food and very friendly locals, then Villa Yaesmin in Umzulu is the place to go.
The bookling process was easy, and Shelia and Peter the owners were extremely helpful, great communication with plenty of tips and advice before we travelled. I felt that they offered a much more personnal service than you would get with a tour operator.
The Villa has eveything you need, with lovely gardens and outdoor eating area, the pool is great and you may meet some of the local wild life, (you often met tortoise in the garden).
Inside its very clean, and if there are any problems, Shelia and Peter have someone locally who can sort any problems out. Whilst we were there, one of the air conditioning units in the bedroom stopped working. As you can imagine, this is not great in the height of summer, but one quick phone call and by the end of the day it had been fixed.
Umzulu is situated approx a 20 minuted drive from the larger harbour resort of Fethiye, we would recommend a car however the local Dolmas (buses) run very regularly from the village. The village is lovely and the villagers extremely friendly.
Eating out is very reasonable, there were six of us, four adults and two teenagers and we were eating out, 2 -3 course with wines and drinks for approx £70-£80. Cadianada, Alya and Vintage were our favourite resturants.. The village has a couple of tavernas and small supermakets and a local market on a Friday morning, so most provisions can be brought locally.
Villa Yaesmin is the perfect base to visit the Western coast of Turkey and I would recommend this to young and old alike, a true getaway, to slow down and remember what life should be about.
