Temperatures in the Summer in the village are around 35 degrees with an afternoon warm breeze, expect another 5-10 degrees on Calis beach and in Fethiye. Weather is often good from May to October with fine days and colder nights into December.
The apartment complex comprises just 4 apartments and it is within walking distance of the village centre including shops and restaurants. As it is located in the midst of the mountains and is a peaceful, rural area. The ancient cities of Cadianda, Tlos and Letoon are nearby and the beautiful beach at Oluz Deniz, the point where the Aegean and Mediterranean Seas meet, is just a dolmus drive from Fethiye.
Uzumlu is noted for its red wine and lace makers along with an annual mushroom festival in the Spring and the beach at nearby Calis' claim to fame is that it was where Daniel Craig walked out of the sea in the James Bond film, Skyfall.

"Wonderful views and fantastic break"
The apartment was perfect for what we wanted, cosy and well kept, and located in a beautiful, traditional village. The pool is shared between four apartments but when we went we had it all to ourselves. Everything is well maintained and clean, and the view from the balcony over the mountains is breath-taking, particularly at sunset.
The locals were all extremely friendly and seemed happy to help and converse making the language barrier a minimal issue. There is a selection of great local restaurants and the nearest town, Fethiye is less than half an hour's bus ride away, hosting a number of markets, shops and restaurants.
All-in-all it was a wonderfully relaxing holiday and the price was more than reasonable for the quality of the accommodation. We would go again in a heartbeat.
