Turtle Villa is our first holiday home abroad, and we hope you will enjoy your stay in our modern, high spec, fully equipped accommodation sleeping up to 8 people (see full details in Facilities section below). The Villa is idyllicly situated overlooking the Babadag Mountain with spacious verrandas and outside seating areas to dine al fresco or just relax whilst taking in the view. It also benefits from a superb Olympic sized swimming pool and peaceful location. Although the hustle and bustle of the nearby resort of Hisaronu is a 15 -20 minute walk away, and the wonderful beaches and lagoon of Olu Deniz are just 10 minutes by Dolmus
All guests staying at the villa are welcome to use all the facilities and amenities at the 4* Orka Hotel, which is only a short stroll up the road. These include, a Turkish Bath which is around £10 for a wonderful exfoliating scrub followed by soft bubbles to wash away the stress and finally a sulphur mud face pack to rejuvenate the skin. I can highly recommend this treatment, I was wonderfully relaxed after, as well as preparing my skin for a fantastic tan. There is also a free Children's Club run by a professional and enthusiastic team should you wish to have a break during the day time.
There is also the option to have a half board basis at the Orka Hotel whilst staying at the villa, which includes buffet style breakfast and a 3 course evening meal with a wide choice of dishes to suit all. The cost of this is around 50 TL (£20) per head per day for adults (2011 prices), children 7-12 years half price and children 0-6 years eat free, which is excellent value for money and superb quality food if you are working to budget. You can book this locally on arrival at reception just ask for Hussan or Soner who will be glad to help you..

If this is your first time to Turkey it won’t be your last, not only is there an abundance of sunshine but a warm welcome at every corner you turn from the locals.
This area of Turkey is famous for its Blue Lagoon at Olu Deniz, most photographs promoting Turkey include a picture of this area, where if you are lucky as my family were on our last visit you can snorkel in the crystal blue waters marvelling at the splendour of a mother Loggerhead turtle swimming with its infant, it’s an image I will never forget neither will my family.
The villa is situated a short distance from here up the hill at Ovacik, which is about 1000m above sea level and benefits from a cool breeze and around a 7°C degree drop in temperature from the beach. It takes about 10 minutes on the Dolmus or you can call ‘Billy’s Beach’ who have a bar on the lagoon and they will pick you up and drop you back free of charge, if you buy a few drinks or eat at the bar !!.
The backdrop to this picturesque scene is the impressive Babadag Mountain soaring to a height at its peak of 1969m and is rich in flora and beautiful Acer trees so great for the walkers amongst you. The mountain is used throughout the year by Para gliders from around the world for its great thermals and fantastic views and if you’re not an expert to can experience this with an expert on a tandem flight for around £50 incl insurance.
There are many water sports in the area from hiring speedboats to diving with PADI qualified instructors.
For the evenings you can visit Hisaronu where there’s every type of Restaurant you can think of and nightclubs to dance the night away if you so wish, there are many shops selling local items and a fun fair for the kids.
Fethiye is a beautiful Harbour town and is about 20 minutes from the Villa and is the hub for most boat trips, we did the 12 Island Tour on our last stay and cost £30 for a family of 5, this included lunch and lasted all day, again fantastic for the snorkelers out there. You can also visit the large market here every Tuesday and haggle to your hearts content.
Another place to visit is Kayokoy Village (Ghost Village) about 4 miles from the villa and costs about 6 Turkish lira for 5 of us (£3) on the Dolmus, this was originally home to around 2000 Greeks and after the War of Independence in 1922 there was an exchange of populations and the Greeks moved out but the homes where left to decay. There are some very rustic restaurants in the village and a great place to chill out in the midday sun and sample a Turkish Tea and a pancake for a couple of pounds.
Hisaronu is a busy town about a fifteen minute walk down the hill from the villa, it has many shops, supermarkets, restaurants, bars, hairdressers and for the gents out there that haven’t had a Turkish Shave try one, you will do it more than once its great £2 !!. Over the past couple of years more hotels and villas have been built but local government insures no building goes over 2 storeys and our villa sits on the edge of the green belt so nothing will be built in the future to spoil these views.
Ovacik where the villa is located has many restaurants close by and many bars to choose from these are more relaxing than the busy Hisaronu ones to try are the 'Rockpool' and ‘Fryer Tuck’ bar great food, a free pool table, Sony Play Station and Internet access for the kids to keep them happy.
Just across and up the the road from the Fryer Tuck is a small Aqua Park with about a dozen slides. Nearby to the villa there are several shops to buy food should you wish to self cater in the well equipped kitchen.
The road from the villa to Ovacik or Hisaronu can be dark in places in the evening and road a little uneven, we do provide a torch in the villa but you might like to bring along a back up one, we generally walk out and taxi back !!
