“Second Summer in a row here”
Reviewed 18 March 2014 for a stay in August 2013

After such an amazing summer here last year we returned again for summer 2013, we stayed a couple of weeks in Kalkan which is about a 30 minute drive from here and and then 2 weeks here.

We absolutely love this villa and can't speak highly enough of the place, it is so peaceful and relaxing. We don't normally go to the same place twice but loved it here that much that we did return. Like last time the family that run the local farm and also maintain the 7 villas here were so nice, this time we were more friendly and we spent a lot of time at their house, we could only speak minimal turkish but still managed to sit with them for hours chatting away. The kids played with the farmers kids so that was good for them.

The only down side was we were let down by the company who rented it to us on a few different things in our 4 weeks in Turkey with them, this was quite disappointing but the family that look after the villas really helped us out. We were left without a fridge for 10 days and as you can imagine a fridge is important when staying up the mountains, but we tried not to let this bother us but was very frustrating.

I think we will stay here again in future, if it wasn't for the farmer and his family then i don't think we would like this place as much, but meeting someone and seeing how they live and actually being invited into their house is truly amazing. On our last night we went up to say goodbye but we did not realise that it was the end of ramadan so they had all their family round for a feast. If we had known this we would not have interrupted, but the nice people they are they told us to come in and they moved their furniture and family onto the roof where they had more space, thats just one example of the nice things they do and how they make you feel very welcome.

You would need to rent a car when staying here as it is up the mountains and only way back and forward is by driving, we drove to Kalkan and other areas a lot. There are markets on every week in Kalkan and a massive market on in Fetihye once a week as well. So many nice things to go and see when you are there.

I would recommend staying here very highly and if you do, make an effort with the farmer and his family as they are very nice people and enjoy you making an effort with them.

Any questions or help you would like please do not hesitate to send me a message.

My ratings are on the rental company and not on the lovely family.
