A delightfully secluded, retreat situated in its own 3 acres of beautifully gardens and offering breathtaking sea/mountain views, 7m x 5m swimming pool (1.4m in depth), fantastic terrace view for relaxing with a cool drink and good book or for watching a dramatic sunset, stylish accommodation and complete privacy.
The cottage is surrounded by pine trees on the hillside looking down over the village and Mediterranean with Rhodes. It is in a quiet village setting but within easy reach of all amenities.
Selen Cottage is situated in Faralya Village, between Kabak Cove and Butterfly Valley. Our villa is close to the famous Oludeniz Lagoon-Hisarönü which offers a selection of restaurants, nightlife, shops and other services as well. Cottage is located on the ‘Lycian Way’, is one of the best places for trekking , cliff diving, mountain climbing, cannoning (Dalaman River), safari and mountain biking.
It is so close to the activity centers of scuba diving, snorkeling, fishing, paragliding, rafting and boat trips.
Walkers will certainly be in their element at Selen Cottage, for there is excellent terrain all around. Stretches of the famous "Lycian Way" can be reached from here, and another highlight is the breathtaking Butterfly Valley - those undertaking the two- hour walk to the base of the valley will be rewarded with the opportunity to swim at one of the region's most beautiful beaches, which can only be reached on foot or by boat.
Car is considered essential when renting this property.
The whole house is light, airy, spacious and beautifully furnished.
There is a large, open plan, kitchen, dining area with high, wooden, vaulted ceilings for coolness. The villa is situated some way above sea level and receives plenty of through breeze in the summer months. However, fans are provided in the bedrooms for guests to use.
The kitchen is well equipped with dining table, microwave, fridge/freezer, washing machine, kettle, toaster and an array of pots, pans and cooking implements.
Although final cleaning is included in our prices, we ask travellers to ensure that the kitchen is tidy on departure and all rubbish disposed of.
In the living area there are two traditional style sofas (with full size pull out double bed). The sofa itself has also been used to sleep an additional child. Access to the front and pool terraces is possible through living area and bedrooms. A TV and CD player are provided for guests to use.
The master bedroom has one double bed, which can be separated to make single beds, bedside tables, large wardrobe, mirror all in painted white wood and door leading to a terrace, again with fantastic views. An iron and hairdryer are available for guests to use.
Next to the master bedroom and second bedroom is a large white tiled bathroom, with shower and wc.
The second bedroom is delightfully furnished with two single beds, a bedside table, large wardrobe and mirror.
The third bedroom is delightfully furnished with two single beds, a bedside table, large wardrobe and mirror. There is access to the terrace as well.
Next to third bedroom is a shower room, with shower, sink and wc.
There is a terrace and seating area from which to admire the lovely views. Garden furniture includes tables, chairs, sun beds and umbrellas. There is also a small bbq.
The 7m x 5m swimming pool has its own beautiful stone terrace and catches the sun all day. It’s wonderful to sit here in the evenings sipping your wine looking out over the view and watching as the bats swoop down over the pool. Parents of small children should note that the pool is 1.4m in depth and does not have a shallow end.
The pool terrace is the perfect place for sun downers as you watch the sun slip over the sea.
There is a terrace which runs all the way round the house offering opportunities to find shady spots during the day.
Selen Cottage is the ideal retreat for those seeking peace and tranquility amidst beautiful natural surroundings and will appeal to both families and more independent explorers. Our location offers complete privacy for lovers and newly-weds looking for a romantic vacation.
Whether you are planning a quiet escape from your busy schedule, a fun getaway with friends, romantic honeymoon or family holiday – think Selen Cottage, your perfect home.
Weve spent one of our best holidays here. House is in very quiet village on hill, overlooking sea with beautiful sunsets. There are no other houses looking at it so you have complete privacy. All rooms are very clean, bathroom is spacious and pool is cleaned every morning.
Youll definitely need a car to reach other parts of Olu Deniz/Fethiye area. Less then 10 minute drive to the south is beautiful Kabak beach and to the north is Kidrak beach, both almost empty during our stay in August. More to the north (10-15 minute drive) is famous Olu Deniz beach, but it is more crowded.
To top it all, the owner, Bedri, is very friendly and helped us more then once.
Highly recommended for quiet and peaceful holiday.

Selen Cottages offers a wonderful bespoke relaxing and tranquil holiday break. The property is situated in breath taking countryside with views of sea and mountains. We choose this holiday because we wanted to get away from the crowds and really relax. Selen Cottages delivered exactly this immersing us in the kind hospitality of the local people. The property is simple and quaint with all the mod cons you require to keep a little in touch with the world (WiFi, cable TV, good mobile phone signal). The property offers complete privacy and has the principle vantage point over other properties nearby. This holiday will suit those with an appreciation of nature and natural beauty, but who dont really want to rough it. I would recomend a car for this holiday, although there is a local bus service that regularly crosses the entrance to the property driveway. I would also recomend walking shoes to traverse the many walks of interest in the area. The most amazing thing we found with the location and situation of this holiday is the restful sleeps you get. Coming from a busy business environment the sheer natural beauty of the area comands you to take rest. We spent our days reading and relaxing by the pool during the seering heat of the June Sun and then venturing out in the late afternoon to discover small restaurants and mountain side bars. The area has numerous natural beaches all around, little undiscovered coves and sunsets to die for and less than 20 minutes away is Oludenez a bustly seaside resort with all the usual amenities. Yes for us this was a truly amazing holiday to the extent we intend to visit at least twice a year now we have discovered Selen Cottages.
