Villa overview - owner's description
Within the idyllic mountains of peaceful Kaya village in the Southwest of Turkey, this family-friendly two-bedroom villa provides the ideal relaxing retreat. With its own private swimming pool, fantastic views over Kaya Valley and fully-equipped kitchen, there's little reason to leave – but you should, since ancient rock tombs, lively local markets and fantastic walking routes abound.
Cube-shaped Villa Besh is traditionally Mediterranean in style on the outside with rustic stone and whitewashed walls, while inside the decor is contemporary and minimal, giving the impression of extra space and light. Main standout features include the glass mosaic pool and roof terrace area, where you can stargaze at the evening skies or sit around the dining table with your morning coffee.
The master room boasts a comfortable super-king size bed, while the other bedroom has two single beds – both are equally stylish and welcoming and have en-suite bathrooms and plenty of space for storing your belongings. The kitchen has a dishwasher and an oven, and there's a living and dining area with cosy seating and a flat-screen TV with a DVD player for a home-from-home stay.
Outside, you'll find the stunning roof terrace, with the table shaded under a wicker pergola, and several chairs and loungers for you to find your prime sunbathing or covered spot. Whistle up a refreshing fruit smoothie using the villa's blender, choose a book from the library and head to this patio area for a relaxing afternoon by the mountains. If you get too warm, dip your toes in the swimming pool – kept utterly private by a beautiful flower-adorned wall and tall wicker fence.
If you'd like to see the local area, the villa is a short 1.1km from Kayakoy Ghost Town, with hundreds of abandoned Greek-style houses and churches. You can walk off-the-beaten-path track through the olive groves, orchards and quiet lanes lined with stone cottages. With the sleepy hamlets of this idyllic part of Turkey surrounded by a hem of pine forests – it's the perfect place to go exploring.

Villa Besh is near Kaya, a sleepy village 8km south of Fethiye in southwestern Turkey. Nestled in the mountains and overlooking Kaya Valley, it's a quiet spot and is an ideal place to go walking or hiking. The famous and atmospheric Kayakoy Ghost Town is only 1.1km from the villa – with abandoned Greek houses and buildings – and you'll find traditional restaurants and shops in the area too.
For keen walkers, there are a myriad of trails from Kayakoy Ghost Town, which lead to remote beaches like Cold Water Bay (around 5.5km away) – a stunning family-friendly bay with turquoise swimming waters and a soft, sandy shoreline – or to the monastery ruins of Afkule (around 4km away), dramatically perched on a cliff ledge above the sea.
The town of Fethiye is a 15-minute drive to the north. It's best known for its natural harbour and ancient rock tombs including the 4th-century B.C. Tomb of Amyntas, carved into the mountains. You can browse the markets in Fethiye and pick up fresh produce or sample the local delicacy – delicious gozleme (thin dough crepes). Then, finish off the day with a treatment at one of the Turkish Baths. There are also plenty of restaurants, cafes and bars for a drink or bite to eat.
Near-shore islands are popular for day trips by boat. 20-minutes to the south is the sandy beach at Oludeniz, which is sheltered by a lagoon and is prime swimming and water sports spot due to its crystal-clear and calm waters. You can also head 24km to Butterfly Valley – a designated nature reserve, which is a (you guessed it) valley home to diverse butterfly species.
