We stayed at the beginning of September and we had a wonderful two weeks. The village is really pretty, surrounded by mountains and overlooking the valley below, in fact we only ventured off three times, twice to Fethiye and one to Kayakoy (also known as the Ghost Town) which is really worth exploring, we even made it to the little chapel at the top which is quite a climb.
All the staff were really friendly and good at their jobs. The cottages are very picturesque as is the village itself, all different and dotted round the village with wildlife wandering freely, chickens, squirrels etc.,
The menu is very good and very well presented and tasty, we therefore didn't feel the need to dine elsewhere, we were there to chill out not gad about. There was a BBQ once a week and a 'fish night' once while we were there with local Turkish dancers and a Belly Dancer which was all very enjoyable, otherwise quiet background music. If you want lively night life then this is not the place for you but if you want peace and relaxation then this is.
Some people have commented on the 'loud PA' system but we didn't find this intrusive, it wasn't all the time and the sound of the Mosque echoing round the valley was really nice.
We met a lively group from Essex who were really nice, talking amongst themselves and enjoying their holiday, in fact everyone we met there seemed very pleasant, enjoying their holiday in their own way as did we.
We plan to go back next year. We stayed in Number 10 which was a lovely cottage in the centre of the village.
The only downside I found was the uncomfortable chairs but the owners very kindly supplied a couple of wicker chairs which helped my back no end and I would like to say thank you for this.
Were happy to answer any queries.
