Yayla is a beautiful, stone villa with its own pool nestling happily on the edge of the hillside in an area of outstanding natural beauty. It is situated next to the pine forests and overlooks the Uzumlu valley. There are three air conditioned en suite bedrooms: perfect for three couples or a family of six. Uzumlu is a traditional Turkish village with a relaxed village square with a mosque, tea houses, mini supermarkets & a few restaurants. The people are very friendly. The village is famous for its wine and lace making and is known for its fine grapes. The word 'uzum' means “grape“. Many of the local women make & sell their goods in the local shops such as scarves, table cloths, curtains & other linen products.

Uzumlu is a traditional Turkish village with a relaxed village square with a mosque, tea houses, mini supermarkets & a few restaurants. The people are very friendly. The village is famous for its wine and lace making and is known for its fine grapes. The word 'uzum' means “grape“. Many of the local women make & sell their goods in the local shops such as scarves, table cloths, curtains & other linen products. On the walk to the villa, you will often see grapes hanging from traditional farm holdings with chillies drying with sheep and goats wandering down the narrow lanes. There is a large, fully enclosed garden with spectacular views over the Taurus mountains. The garden is on two levels. There is a private pool, an outside shower, a stone barbecue, sun beds and fruit trees on the upper level. The fruit trees include fig, pomegranate, mandarin, lemon, satsuma, plum, peach, orange and olive trees. There is a step down to the lower level. Here you can relax and drink tea in the traditional Turkish kosh (a gazebo with cushions) and marvel at the stunning views overlooking the village. Moving into the villa itself, on the ground floor, there is an open plan kitchen and a light, spacious living room (with a high ceiling) and a bedroom. As you walk though an arch into the living room, you will find a stone fireplace and a tastefully decorated living room with three sofas; a 3 seater sofa and two 2 seater sofas. There is a range of DVD's and a selection of Turkish novels to read. The bedroom can be made up as a double or 2 singles. As it is on the ground floor, it is good for children & is also suitable for disabled access. All bedrooms are equipped with air conditioning & en suite bathrooms. On the upper floor there are two large, spacious double bedrooms. Bedroom one has a comfortable king sized bed (or 2 singles). Bedroom 2 has a double bed. Both rooms have balconies with spectacular views of the Uzumlu valley & surrounding mountains.More

Interaction with guests
My house manager, gardener and cleaner have been described by guests as 'second to none'. My house manager will greet you on arrival and give you information to help your holiday run smoothly. He will tell you about everything at the villa. He can tell you about local attractions and will go out of his way to help you. He lives in the nearby town, Fethiye and can be contacted by mobile. We leave contact details for police, health and emergency services on a fridge magnet, so it is easy to locate. The gardener and cleaner live in Uzumlu. There is also a folder a the villa that provides information for guests on local attractions and information about the villa. For example, using the barbecue in Turkish style.

About the neighbourhood
Nearby beaches: Calis (15 mins drive) known for its spectacular sunsets with a protected area for turtles at the far end of the beach, Oludeniz (40 mins drive) the famous blue lagoon with its calm, gently sloping waters which are safe for young children. A bit further away: Patara, a beautiful, sandy windswept beach (1 hour's drive south of the villa) Izutzu Beach, a beautiful sandy beach (which is the nesting ground of the loggerhead turtle) near Dalyan (1 hours drive north of the villa: experience the mudbaths here) Sarigerme, a sandy beach good for windsurfing & sailing. There is also a golf course at Sarigerme.
Getting around
You can get the local bus (the dolmus) in the village square of Uzumlu. This will take you into Fethiye and further afield. alternatively you might want to heir a car (see above comments). I usually hire a car as this makes shopping from the local super markets in Fethiye easy. Alternatively, there are plenty of mini supermarkets in Uzumlu. The local bread is sold for 1 Turkish lira. This is a fixed price by the government. I have said a car is recommended but many previous guests have had a lovely holiday with not having a car.
