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.
The famous Olu Deniz beach with its stunning blue lagoon is renowned as the most beautiful beach in Turkey, The lagoon is like a large lake, very calm, ideal for children with is gently shelving waters. The Turquoise Coast is without doubt one of the most beautiful areas in which to relax and unwind. From the backdrop of the Taurus mountains the coast is full of beautiful beaches, crystal clear turquoise seas, stunning scenery and numerous places of interest and ancient sites full of history and culture.
The area has something for everyone, the thrills of white water rafting, paragliding off babadag mountain, ringo riding down the stunning saklikent gorge or why not visit the Dalyan mud baths, for those who enjoy historical sights why not visit the historical sites of Ephesus and Pamukkale, or the nearby ancient ruins of Kadyanda (20 mins from the villa). For the less adventurous and those which wish to relax why not take a boat trip out of Fethiye or Olu Deniz, sit back, relax and have lunch cooked for you.
The choices are endless and you will wish to come back time after time.
The Uzumlu area
The village of yesil Uzumlu is a small traditional Turkish village located 18kms from the bustling town of Fethiye. The village itself is surronded by a fantastic backdrop of mountains. Villa Poppy is situated in an elevated position, currently on an unmade road, surrounded by pine forests, with exceptional views over the valley and set with a backdrop against the mountains. As Uzumlu is 500m above sea level you will enjoy the cool mountain breezes which are more than welcome especially in the summer.
The traditional village of Uzumlu is approx a 25 minute walk away (approx 2 km) and it has managed to retain all of the natural charm and character of a traditional Turkish village whilst having the convenience of a modern town of Fethiye which is a twenty minutes drive away. The villa is currently situated up an unmade road.
Within the village you will be able to experience real Turkish village life and the atmosphere is where you can experience the real Turkey quiet and unspoilt and is ideal for those looking for a little peace and quiet, breathtaking scenery and rural life. The village of Uzumlu has small supermarkets in which to buy your essential groceries, several restaurants, a bakery in which to buy fresh bread every day, a barbers, post office and a local market on Fridays in order to buy local produce.
From the mosque in the village square you can catch a dolmus (Turkish taxi) which will take you into Fethiye. Fethiye is an all year round working town 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. Every Tuesday there is a huge open air market near the marina selling everything from clothes, shoes, household goods, gifts and food. Great to practice your bartering skills! The harbour and marina is bordered by palm tree lined promenades and back streets filled with shops, bars and restaurants, yielding bargains, gastronomic delights and bustling night life. The town is lined with shops galore as well as a maze of little side streets offering many hidden treasures. At night there are a good selection of bars, cafes and restaurants offering local and international cuisine. You will also find discos and cinemas in Fethiye town centre.
For a much livelier resort you can visit Hisaronu with its wide choice of shops, restaurants and late night bars, 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.
The world renown resort of Olu Deniz 'the blue lagoon' with its sheltered beach and lagoon which is ideal for children and swimming, is a short distance away from Fethiye. Here you can wander around the shops, sit and have a drink in one of the many seafront cafes and watch the paragliders land on the beach.
Calis beach is a 20 minute drive from the villa and is famous for its stunning sunsets, cooling breezes and beautiful long beach of single and sand which stretches across the bay to Fethiye. The seafront and area around Calis is flat and therefore suitable for strolling along the promenade deciding which of the many restaurants or bars in which to sit and watch the world go by.

The villa was awesome. Had everything you needed. The trips were great fun.
The only downfall was the Kipa supermarket was quite a distance and would advise you take the opportunity of the full shop on arrival. Bread, milk, water etc can be bought daily from the local shops. Very quite without the noise of a complex and no need to get up at the crack of dawn to reserve sunbeds. Have already enquired about availibilty for next year!!!!
Its a must!!!!!!!!!!!!
Thank you for your lovely comments regarding Villa Poppy and your holiday.
We look forward to seeing you again in 2013

This was our second visit to Villa Poppy and our friends first. For us, it was as brilliant as last year and, our friends' were delighted with the Villa saying it was the best they had ever stayed in, having had Villa holidays for several years. Our children's ages ranged from 4 years to 19 years and we were a group of nine. The Villa is spacious so no one is on top of each other and the games room for the children and the adults is such a bonus. Karen and Pete who manage Villa Poppy present the Villa at a really high standard with nice little touches and it is fully equipped. They are available if you need them and can give good tips for places to eat etc but do not impose in any way. Uzmulu itself is a great place with several good restaurants and lots nearby if you want to venture away from the pool.
Thank you for your lovely comments. It was lovely seeing you again and we hope to see you again next year!

This is the only villa we have ever returned to the following year, having enjoyed it so much the first time. This year Karen & Pete have gone out of their way to improve it even more. The villa is fantastic with not only a great swimming pool area but also an amazing games room in the basement with pool table, table tennis, table football & PS2. It is perfect for the times when you really want the kids/teens out of the sun but not just sitting around complaining that they are bored! Uzumlu village has retained its authentic Turkish feel despite additional visitors & we thorougly enjoyed it. Will definitely be back again.
It was lovely to see you all again and we are really glad you enjoyed your stay, hopefully we will see you again next year!
