Blacktree Farm and Cottages
Ranked #18 of 97 Fethiye B&B and Inns
Reviewed 8 October 2005

Blacktree Cottages is an enclave of cottages, restaurant, and pool high above Fethiye, and isolated by a dramatic mountainous road - the last 9kms of which are unmade and not for the faint-hearted. We stayed there in June of this year and were initially concerned and disppointed to be the only people on site. But we were made very welcome, the owner Anthea and her Turkish husband Bob did everything they could to make our stay enjoyable and the restaurant gave us a full range of choices - despite being the only customers. We soon found that being alone up at Blacktree had it's advantages. Anthea regaled us with interesting, amusing and (sometimes ) scurrilous stories garnered from her 30 odd years in Turkey and was also a mine of information on the local area, walks and village life and gossip. She also initiated us into the delights of some very cheap red wine - no label, no vintage !

The site itself is also much, much, prettier than the pictures on their website suggest and the setting is also much more dramatic - with astonishing valley views from the pool and terrace.

Were there any downsides ? Not really, the cottages are simple but well appointed. Self-catering woud be dificult though as supplies are difficult to get. This didn't worry us as I had no intention fo doing anything for myself . But it might be of concern to those with families. The pool is also rather small , and even though we were on our own we didn't use it much as it was only a few strokes from side to side.

Overall, this is magical place for people who like peace and quite, mountains and their wildlife, and a chance to see Turkish village life in all its guises. Almost perfect in face - but they need a bigger pool !
