It is a pleasant 1km flat walk from the villas to the village of Kaya Köy. This delightful traditional Turkish village has three small shops for essential supplies, about a dozen restaurants ranging from authentic local barbeque “lokantas”, to more sophisticated Western style cuisine. Generally the food is excellent and at low, low prices. Also at Kaya Köy you will find the famous deserted Greek “ghost” village of Karmylassos.
The ancient and bustling harbour town of Fethiye is 7km from Kaya. For those without a car, the dolmush to Fethiye stops almost outside our gates, and runs there 4 times a day.
Fethiye’s busy centre provides the holiday maker with a combination of essential shops and services such as supermarkets and banks, plus a myriad of streets in the “old town” providing souvenirs, leather, gold and carpets, as well as many restaurants, bars and dancing clubs. The magnificent natural harbour, one of the biggest on the Mediterranean, has a wonderful promenade dotted with bars and restaurants and is a relaxing place to enjoy a beer, some good food and to watch the world go by.
Just the other side of the low-lying mountain ridge you will find Hisaronu, our closest “town”. Hisaronu is a lively place for eating, drinking and shopping, and is known for its night life with many clubs, bars and restaurants. Catering for all tastes, it is very continental, offering some traditional Turkish cuisine as well as Indian, Chinese, Italian, French and of course English. There are lots of shops selling everything from clothes to gold and open all hours!
7km in the opposite direction from Fethiye is the famous beach resort of Olu Deniz, packed with hotels, bars and restaurants. If the idea of having a meal or a drink at a place looking out onto a beautiful beach appeals to you, then this is the place to come. Olu Deniz is known for its famous beach and Blue Lagoon which is featured on all the TV adverts for holidays in Turkey.
