    Property description
    Holiday Rental House – 
    1 Bedroom, 2 Bathrooms, Sleeps 2
    The Byre was the first of the three Sakli Vadi cottages and is the largest of the three. The ruin was bought in 1993 and took a little over a year to restore. The restoration was done after much research into what the original building looked like, both inside and out. The cottage was awarded a plaque from the Turkish Ministry Of Tourism & Culture for “Sympathetic Restoration Of Turkish Heritage” of which the owners Sandy & Jon Carter are justifiably proud.

    The cottage is situated at the highest point at the western end of the Kaya valley, with stunning views in all directions. The interior of the cottage consists of a hallway cut into the rock leading onto the kitchen on one side and the master double bedroom, with en suite bathroom on the other. Leading off the fully fitted kitc...

    Additional Rate and Availability Information
    PLEASE NOTE : The Byre weekly rental rates above are based on two persons sharing. However, the cottage does have two single beds located on a traditional balcony above the salon, suitable for teenage children. In the low season we make a surcharge for using the single beds of Gbp. 49.00 per bed/person/night and in the high season months of July, August & September, Gbp. 63.00 per bed/person/night.

    We ask clients to pay 50% of the rental rates to confirm their booking and the balance one month prior to arrival. Clients can pay in Sterling with a UK cheque or by ibanking online. We are also registered with PayPal, where you can pay in any currency by credit or debit card, but we have to add 5% to all invoices, due the commission charges levied.

    Once paid, both deposits and balances are non-refundable. This is because as soon as a deposit is paid, all other enquires for The Byre are then declined.

5 of 5 stars Reviewed 18 November 2013 for a stay in October 2013

Our stay of four days at The Byre felt too short in the end. The owners have done an amazing restoration job, managing to strike the right balance between quaint/rural and modern/convenient.
The location is relatively isolated, so a car is advisable. However this isolation means that the setting is truly stunning, being perched up on a hill surrounded on all sides by mountains and countryside. (The Byre has the best views of the cottages collectively named Sakli Vadi.) It was a perfect place to relax, but there are also plenty of places to visit and things to do in the wider area. The location is far enough away from the bustle of Fethiye, and yet only a 15-20 min drive away by car. If you can’t be bothered to cook, there are also lots of good places to eat nearby. There was plenty of outside seating and a great little deck with loungers and a welcome plunge pool. There was also plenty of flora and fauna to get acquainted with. The Byre left us with memories that will last a long...
