Araxa is a delightful, modern luxury three bedroom executive villa situated on a small exclusive development of only twenty or so houses with beautifully landscaped gardens. Set in a lovely secluded pine forest it is just a short walk from the nearest shops and also the bus route to Oludeniz / Fethiye.
The villa boasts a south facing garden with private pool in full sun, patio and sun terrace with 360° mountain views. There is easy access to walks through the woods with wildlife on your doorstep including much loved tortoises and numerous local birds.
The villa is fully furnished and has been maintained to a very high standard throughout with recently newly refurbished bathrooms. All rooms are fully air-conditioned and with marble flooring throughout.

The well tendered gardens are lit at night and this provides a lovely evening setting for eating outdoors. The pool also has underwater LED lighting - very tempting!
The private swimming pool has a uniform depth of 1.4m and measures approximately 8m x5m and is cleaned daily by very friendly onsite maintenance staff who also tend to the flowers and provide 24hr emergency assistance if necessary as well as night security. Our Site manager is also available and speaks good English. She is a ready source of help and advice as necessary and will provide a meet and greet service soon after your arrival.

In short, we believe we have tried to provide everything that will help to make your holiday that extra bit special and will make life as hassle-free as possible.

We consider this our second home - we will be happy to pass on our recommendations to help you personalise your stay with us - enjoy!
Araxa is within walking distance of local shops and the village of Ovacik. The nearest local restaurant and convenience stores are about 10 minutes walk away and there is also a free 24/7 grocery delivery service to the villa for added convenience! Either choose your supplies at the shop or there is an itemised list at the Villa to ring through your order.
For the young and young at heart the lively town of Hisaronu is only a few minutes bus or taxi ride from Araxa and offers a full range of bars, restaurants, shops and clubs to meet all tastes. There is also a local market every Monday in Hisaronu with a large choice of locally grown produce, clothes, shoes, leather goods and souvenirs.
Five minutes further on from Hisaronu is the famous Oludeniz beach and Blue Lagoon voted one of the top 10 best beaches in the world by the Rough Guide. The beach area has numerous bars and restaurants overlooking the bay and is an ideal setting to watch the sunset whilst enjoying a evening drink. A wide range of water sports is available and there are good value boat trips from the beach to Butterfly Valley and the nearby secluded islands and bays. Oludeniz is also one of the world's top locations for paragliding which can be enjoyed either as a spectator or why not take a tandem jump with an experienced instructor to land on the beach from 2000m - an unforgettable experience!
In the other direction the lovely harbour town of Fethiye is only 10 minutes by bus or taxi from Araxa and offers a wide range of shops, large supermarkets and restaurants. There are plenty of banks and cashpoints and there is a large bazaar area in the ‘Old Town’, known locally as the Paspatur. The Paspatur and the atmospheric Fishmarket and restaurants are famous attractions. Fethiye also has a modern promenade with great cafes and good value restaurants which now extend to the nearby beach resort of Calis.
The weekly Tuesday market in Fethiye is very popular - offering a very wide range of local produce as well as a large range of incredible value clothing, shoes, souvenirs, leather goods etc. Fethiye has a beautiful marina with really good value boat trips offered along the picturesque coastline and especially to the famous ‘twelve islands.’
Beyond the marina Fethiye has a typically Turkish atmosphere and is a great place to explore. There is something for everyone.
We feel that local transport is more than adequate to get around the area though some guests choose to hire a car to explore the area more thoroughly and independently. We can provide details of local contacts with competitive prices, should this be the case. Local dolmus (minibuses) are easily accessible only a few minutes walk from Araxa and are cheap and fun to use. They run all day until about 01.00hrs. We have also negotiated preferential terms for guests at the Villa with a local taxi service, a friendly and reliable firm, who will pick up from the Villa within a few minutes of your call, with fixed prices to the usual destinations agreed. Good value private day trips can be easily negotiated. For 5-6 people it is cheaper to use the taxi service rather than the dolmus bus service.
Transfers to and from Dalaman airport can be arranged for you if required at competitive prices - ask for details.
In the event of any medical emergency there is 24 hour medical assistance in Ovacik and modern private hospital facilities in Fethiye. From experience the medical attention we have accessed and received has been really excellent. High quality but low cost specialist dental work is available - ask for further details if you are interested or you are in need!.
The area offers a wide range of activities to suit all tastes – activities range from the seriously energetic such as white water rafting or tandem paragliding from nearby Babadag Mountain and landing on Oludeniz beach, to more sedate activities such as visiting the many historic Lycian sites around the area at Letoon, Tlos, the Sunday Times 'top ten' beach at Patara or maybe relaxing on a boat trip or else rejuvenating in a Turkish bath!
In the summer relaxing by the pool or beach, enjoying water sports or taking one of the excellent boat trips is highly recommended. As a special treat why not hire a private boat (gulet) complete with skipper and crew for a whole day to go snorkeling and swimming away from the tourist areas with a full BBQ lunch included at very reasonable and affordable prices. We can recommend from our experience.
Further inland after only a short trip into the mountains you will find cooler air, clear mountain trout streams and a friendly and relaxed way of life. Out of the high season treking along the world famous Lycian Trail, which has its start point adjacent to Araxa Villas, is an excellent challenge for the actively minded. We have arranged special pick ups and drop offs for walking groups. In January / February snow will normally fall on the highest peaks surrounding Fethiye and can normally still be seen in late March, providing a spectacular and beautiful backdrop to the bay.
For the sporting there is a well maintained and friendly tennis club in Fethiye with six quality courts and tuition available for all ages. Fishing from the shore or boats at any time of year is a favourite pastime.
Whether visiting as a couple, with friends or as a family of all ages we have found that there is so much to do and at very reasonable prices. As a guide these include :
BOAT TRIPS / BOAT HIRE
SPEED BOAT HIRE
SITES OF INTEREST:
Visit Saklikent Gorge, Tlos, Gocek, Dalyan, Xanthos, Letoon, Patara, the Lycian Way, Turkish, Greek and Roman ruins, rock tombs, amphitheatres and Castle in Fethiye. Close by is the abandoned and mysterious Greek 'ghost' village of Kayakoy. One hours drive inland is the ski resort at Seki.

A beautiful villa with mountain views, the owners were very prompt in replying to queries. The villa is immaculate in every way with attention to detail. If you would like to be out of the main town of Hisaranou (40 min walk) but still have access to the town's facilities the local buses run very frequently if walking isn't your thing. The buses can take you to Oludeniz and Fethije too which are a 10 minute drive in either direction. A peaceful retreat!
23/07-31/07/15: Can't recommend this villa highly enough. It is faultless. Spacious house with a well equipped kitchen. The outdoor area is lovely - beautiful pool (cleaned every morning), outdoor dining area and "sitooterie" with barbeque. Booking process was seamless, transfers to/from airport were fine. This villa is 10 minutes taxi/dolmus ride from Olu Deniz so, while the heat was unbearable in bay, we had a pleasant breeze.
Lovely place, lots to see and do .
We had a brilliant and very relaxing holiday at this villa which was spacious and very comfortable. The booking experience was excellent with all necessary information being given at the required times. On arrival the accommodation lived up to expectations provided by the photographs and we particularly benefitted from help from the local contact due to some issues occurring back home whilst we were there. We particularly enjoyed the pool area and made good use of the barbecue. Although we had a rental car we also used local transport on one occasion which proved very reliable. The surrounding area provided good options for a varied holiday. Our only negative was some difficulty due to the initial directions provided which we felt could have been better ( although we arrived late at night after a long days travel which didnt help). Overall an excellent holiday and we intend to try to return to this place
This was our 5th villa holiday, and I would say this is the best we have had. We arrived at Daleman airport in the evening and had been a little concerned about driving in Turkey for the first time and trying to find a villa, but the road signs, and directions where very clear and we found the villa easily. The Villa is impressive, nice and open, with all the facilities and equipment needed and the furniture inside and out is good quality. The location is excellent, there are a couple of restaurants within walking distance, but we preferred the short drive to Hisaronu or Olu Deniz, which have numerous restaurants of all nationalities. There is also plenty to explore, we enjoyed driving up the mountains and enjoying the views, or going to the beaches. Our must do recommendation would be to visit the Seklikent Gorge. The villa is managed locally by Jackie and her help and advice was fantastic. We had a problem with the car from the hire company, and Jackie who speaks very good Turkish, called the company for us and explained the problem we had and it was resolved immediately.
In summary we had a fantastic holiday and would highly recommend this villa to anybody.
