Tlos is known as “the sports centre” of the Lycian Federation and was the home of the mythological winged horse, Pegasus and his hero Bellorophonte. An Acropolis, the temple type tomb of Bellorophonte, the Stadium, the Roman Bath complex (with its great views) and amphitheatre, are the structures that remain well preserved.

Kelebekler Vadisi (Butterfly Valley) This interesting canyon, surrounded by 350 m high mountains, 3 - 4 miles away from Ölüdeniz took its name from butterflies named "Jarsey Tiger". 40 other species of butterflies can be seen between July and September months.
We thoroughly enjoyed our 2 weeks at Villa Ruya. The guaranteed hot weather always helps but we found the villa ideal for the six of us. It was clean and well located in a quiet area. The 10 to 15 min walk to beach or main shops was fine and helped walk off the previous days Turkish food! The pool was great - in fact the pictures on the website dont do justice to the pool which is a good size and depth. The pool man came virtually every morning to clean and check the chlorine. Half way through the two weeks our sheets and towels were changed which we hadnt expected particularly as there is a decent washing machine.
The dolmush local buses were nearby on the main road and a very easy way of getting around including the obligatory trip to the Tuesday market in Fethiye. We hired mopeds (very cheap to do) for a few days for fun but you can manage here without a hire car. We did a Dalyan organised trip but did the Saklikent Gorge via dolmush! We had deliveries from one of the local shops but in fact a new shop has opened a few hundred yards up the road which was fine for basics and bread in the mornings. We would definitely recommend Villa Ruya to others.

Lovely villa, perfect size for our family of 4. Very clean and well presented, garden/outside area is quite small but well maintained. Wouldve been nice to have had a BBQ. 15 mins walk to restaurants/beach front and shops. Nearest mini market just 70 metres from villa and owned by a very friendly Turkish chap, it was well stocked and reasonably priced too :-) quiet location, however the walk to amenities takes you across a dual carriageway, canal and some unlit dirt track roads, this was not a problem for us and certainly didnt deter us from venturing out each evening, though it was a little unbearable during the day when temps reach 35+ :-/ Communication with the owner was faultless and the few niggles we had during our stay were dealt with promptly with great service/communication from the maintenance and cleaning people. All said we thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Villa Ruya. Calis beach is a lovely resort though getting a little too commercial for us since a previous stay 7 years ago. Something for everyone and a great base to explore from :-)

The swimming pool was great fun aswell and for the price it was a bargain. recommended to anyone whos in two minds about this villa.

The villa was well presented and in a nice quiet area away from the night life. The pool was very clean and well maintained and a good size. Air conditioining units were in all bedrooms and the living area and worked well. There was a good size table and chairs on the front patio accessed from the living room which we used continually and 6 sunbeds around the pool. Plenty of bath towels and beach towels were supplied. The villa was perfect for our family group- two children 8 and 10. It took us a couple of days to get the short cuts to the sea front and mini supermarket which was around 10-15 minutes walk away, good to walk off the night time meal and cocktails but could seem a bit of a trawl in the heat of the mid-day sun.
Chalis beach is a good place for a family holiday having a pedestrianised promenade with lots of restauarants, bars and shops.lining the sea front. However, the beach is shingle and the sea falls off quite steeply so not great for kids. There is a small water park which is walking distance from the villa ( about 20 mins) or you can catch the dolmus and get dro pped off outside. There are plenty of day trips and tours available from operators along the sea front and we would recommend the jeep safari, loads of fun, and the boat trip. There was a regular dolmus service running to Fethiye which cost 2lira per person per trip ( around 66p). Fethiye is well worth a night visit and can also be accessed via a water taxi from Chalis. We normally rent a car but didnt need one there.
The communication with the owner was very good, they organised our transfers to and from the airport and allowed us to stay on at the villa well past the official leaving time to accomodate our late night flight.

This is our second trip to Calis Beach so we already knew the area, having stayed in a similar villa previously. The villa is about 10-15 mins walk from the front which was fine.
The good points of Villa Ruya: Good value for money, clean and tidy, large fridge, good cooking facilities, better washing machine than we have at home (!), selec tion of games and books (which we added to, leaving our books for future people), quiet location, swimming pool cleaned every day and outside areas cleaned regularly. There was also a mid-stay clean which was excellent! The transfers to and from the airport which we arranged with the owner went smoothly without any dramas. Also the owner was good with communication prior to our arrival, emailing info pack etc. He also let us stay in the villa on the day of departure until our transport arrived.
Now the bad points: Unfortunately there is a very noisy cockerel living with the Turkish family next door which woke us all up 5am every morning, although this isnt the owners fault! More annoyingly, the shower in the second bathroom was hanging off the wall and didnt work, which made getting a family of six showered every evening a bit of a mission as there was only one working shower which was in the ensuite. Also, the outside patio lighting did not work, this meant that if you wanted to sit out at night you had to do so in the pitch dark. I did report this to the rep from the management company but nothing was done. Also, the villa is actually up for sale (something we didnt know) and half way through our stay the rep phoned asking if he could do a viewing! We agreed as we were only lounging by the pool that day, but it did feel like a bit of an imposition, especially as he didnt do anything about the shower or the lighting! To be fair to the owner, this is more the fault of the management company who dont seem that great.
Overall, niggly bits aside, we did enjoy our stay and would recommend this villa (if the second shower was fixed!) and dare I say it, if the cockerel was silenced!

The property was as described and was very good value for money. Upon arrival we found the property and the pool very clean. The pool man came nearly every morning to maintain the pool. We only had two slight issues, one was we had no tea towels at the villa and although we requested some, we never received any and the other was that both shower units were in a poor state. We had to hold the shower head manually over us as the fixing on the wall was broken, and also with the shower in the main bathroom, that too was completely away from the wall although we could still hang the shower head up.
Thanks for informing us about the showers (they will be fixed immediately) and as for the tea towels (plenty when we last left the villa) we will ensure they are replensihed in the kitchen.
