Villa overview - owner's description

This brand new luxury villa, with private pool has breath-taking views of stunning valley and mountains and backs onto forestry land.

Our luxury villa is set in 500m of terraced forest land and has a private pool 12m x 5m. The panoramic views from the garden and large terrace across the valley floor onto the mountians, are stunning. From the garden, the ancient Lycian ruins at Tlos can be easily seen.

The ground floor is open-plan with large glass double doors and full length windows making the most of the amazing views. The large sitting room has a double sofa bed as well as additional seating. A Playstation2 is also provided. The dining area has seating for up to 8 people and opens out onto a large terrace should you wish to have a BBQ or eat outside. This is a mosquito-free area and so al fresco evenings are lovely. An open fire place is found in the Turkish snug which also has traditional cushioned seating seating. There is also a fully equipped kitchen, downstairs shower room and a utility room. The wooden staircase takes you upstairs to a large upstairs sitting area with 2 comfy rocking chairs. The panoramic views through the full-length windows here are breath-taking. Off this sitting room there are 2 double bedrooms one with en-suite shower room. Both have full length windows to take full advantage of the views and also open onto the upstairs balcony. There is a third bedroom with twin beds and another shower room leading from the upstairs sitting area.

Our Local Area
Our villa is in a very quiet location, with uninterrupted views of the valley to the front and mountains to the sides. The site also backs onto protected forest land ideal for walks and picnics.

Authentic Turkish village life can be experienced firsthand in Kadikoy village just 2 minutes drive away. There, supplies can be purchased in the local shops or even delivered to your villa.

At the traditional Turkish roadside Locantas, you can watch the locals as they prepare your food - trout, BBQ meat or the wonderful vegetarian Turkish meze starters.

The immediate area around the villa is perfect for exploring, walking, climbing and bird and wildlife watching whatever your level of fitness and experience.

Saklikent Gorge - This is the second largest gorge in Europe and only 10 minutes drive from our villa. It is 20km long and there are suspended walkways that let you walk for miles along it. There are many walking trails here of various difficulties. Alternatively you can sit in one of the traditional Turkish lounges which are suspended 0.5m above the ice-cold running waters and shaded by fig trees while eating the freshly caught trout which they serve. For the more adventurous, there is white water rafting and mud baths! A great treat for the kids is staying in one of the tree houses which you can hire for the night (9 pounds per person per night for dinner, bed and breakfast at current rates). Again, this can be booked through us prior to your leaving home or arranged once you arrive at Villa Carreta.

Tlos (10 minutes away)- This is probably the oldest city in Lycia. Parts of the ancient Lycian citadel can be seen on the acropolis hill, along with the ruins of a Byzantine fortress, numerous rock-strewn tombs, a Roman stadium, amphitheatre and baths. This site is easily seen from our garden and vice versa!

Just past Tlos and just 15 minutes away from Villa Carreta, are the local trout farms where lunch is served in traditional turkish seating areas underneath huge, old trees. The Yakapark farm is a superb place to spend a hot afternoon. The many running streams that run through it provide natural air conditioning, and keep the area cool, no matter how hot the weather is.

Our local Mountain Lodge bar is a 10 minute drive away and does lovely food in a wonderful setting with a pool and play area for the kids.

Further Afield
Patara (45 minutes) - This was the port of Xanthus and is now an important archaeological site and protected area. Patara beach is a white sand beach with dunes and has been recently voted the best beach in the world by The Sunday Times. Our kids (and us) adore this beach - the waves are great fun for jumping over and you can even body-surf here. It is a huge expanse of sand, surrounded by mountains with one lovely beach bar.

Kalkan is 10 minutes further on from Patara and makes a great full day trip out from Villa Carreta. This gorgeous seaside town has a beautiful bay and a wonderful old centre with winding cobbled streets and many fascinating shops selling carpets, jewellery, tiles etc. I can spend many a happy hour (and quite a lot of money) wandering around here!

Fethiye (40 minutes away) - This is a busy fishing town with a wonderful fish market, Turkish baths, traditional rug and kilm shops, marina with boat trips out to the islands in the bay. Lycian tombs are carved into the cliff face behind the town.

Skiing - The season is from mid December to mid April.
Pinara (30 miles) - This is the most spectacular of all the ancient cities in Lycia. The pinkish rock face is full of tombs unfortunately inaccessible to everyone but experienced climbers.

Xanthus (30 miles) - Ancient Lycian ruins.

From South Woodford, United Kingdom Sep 2010

For those wishing for a get away from it all holiday this villa is great. We were fortunate enough not to have neighbours in the surrounding villas so for us that was a plus.
The wildlife surrounding us was amazing and didnt expect to see red squirrels in Turkey of all places. Fascinating to watch rural Turkish life in the fields below the villa too. The sounds of the call to prayer echoing across the valley made me feel like I was in the exotic east whilst at the same time the ciccadas reminded me I was still in the mediterranean. A lovely blend. Turkish people are very friendly with ready smiles so this all added to our first visit to this country.
The villa itself was light and airy, very comfortable and well equipped like borrowing a friends home for a couple of weeks. Ayhan was very attentive without being intrusive.
The ideas for places to visit were very welcome otherwise we wouldnt have known where to start and Ayhan was also able to steer us in the right direction on that as well.
very enjoyable, much needed break in comfy surroundings.


From Coggeshall, Essex

The property is in a simply stunning location providing wonderful views accross the valley and perfect sunsets. The pool is a must, it is hot here. The welcome from everyone was truely wonderful, the locals and neighbours could not do enough to help.

I would recommend highly this property especially if you want a truely Turkish experience!

The property itself is very well appointed and the air conditioning in the bedrooms and lounge a godsend.

Hi Anna,Just had to email you to say that we had a brilliant stay at your Villa. Thank you for supplying the welcome pack. The villa is in a beautiful position and we enjoyed watching the melons being harvested, the goats being grazed and chased and shopping in Kad-i-koy as well as eating at the local cushionnaires. The villa itself was clean and spacious and the equipment provided was excellant....thankyou.I would also like to express our gratitude to Marie-Anne and Umut who were readily available to help with any query that we had regarding our stay. We had not visited Turkey before and their helpful hints and back-up for any advice via the mobile phone was very useful. We believe that both went out of their way to be helpful and make our stay at your villa memorable. Unfortunately during the stay our hire car broke down (faulty gear stick) at Saklikent and thankfully once again Umut was on hand with engineers to repair and help in any way they could. It was very much appreciated by us all.We will be recommending you to all our friends and family should anyone wish to stay in traditional Turkey (in comparison to areas near Oludeniz). It was a wonderful experience that we will remember for a long time...Sally, Richard and Robert - July 2007

Jack, Jo, Alex and Olly Wells ; 5th July 2006What a great holiday and a fantastic (and very tasteful) villa! The kids adored the pool and my husband and I adored the Jacuzzi; we’ve never had one to ourselves before! We visited Saklikent Gorge and the boys loved the rafting and walking up the gorge. Patara Beach was also a great hit with the waves. Apart from that we were just happy to stay at the villa and potter around. Next time I would definitely like to come back for longer than a week – there was lots that we didn’t get time to do.

Villa Carreta gave us the most relaxing holiday we have ever had. The villa itself is huge with 3 separate sitting areas inside so there was plenty of space for our extended family to all chill out. The big garden had many different areas to ‘hide’ from the kids with my book! However my favourite spot was the wonderful pool where I spent hours gazing at the incredible panoramic views and watching the goat herders and farmers daily lives. I would not hesitate to recommend Villa Carreta and this area of Turkey to our friends and family and hope to come back ourselves soon.Louise and James - August 2006
