A gorgeous, 2 bedroom villa with full A/C, that sleeps up to 6 guests, set in private walled gardens on a beautiful, secluded complex in Ovacik, overlooking large communal pool, with balcony views.
This delightful, detached villa, is located on a quiet, luxury development, close to dolmus and taxi links, on the edge of the popular village of Ovacik, just a few moments from the ever lively resort of Hisaronu and the picture perfect beach and lagoon of Olu Deniz.
Set in visually stunning scenery, this beautiful stone villa offers character and style throughout. Inside this stylish villa is a fully fitted modern kitchen with marble worktop and Bosch appliances, with extending dining table where up to six guests can sit comfortably and relax over a casual lunch with friends and family, with the added benefit of air-conditioning throughout which will ensure the right temperature for you, however hot it gets outside!

There is also a modern and stylish family bathroom with shower cubicle, basin and WC. A Travel cot and highchair are available if required.
Outside, the private and enclosed lawned gardens wrap around the villa offering sun dappled and shaded areas under mature trees throughout the day, along an with ample tiled patio area with cushioned sunbeds where you can laze in the sun, or perhaps relax in a hammock slung between the trees sipping a refreshing beer. Sun brollies and beanbags are provided allowing you to sit and chill with a good book and a glass of wine in comfort, at any time of the day. The sunbeds are dedicated to the villa meaning you wont have to get up at the crack of dawn with a towel to reserve a pool space, even though there is ample space around the enclosed pool area, which also offers a toddlers pool and shaded sun canopy. There is a fantastic bespoke BBQ with granite worktop which is ideal for cooking some of the superb locally sourced meats, fish and fresh vegetables which the area is renowned for.
The complex is traffic free, making it safe for children of all ages with cobbled pathways providing a delightful village feel, and the borders are planted with mature flower beds, shrubs and even fruiting pomegranate trees. There is a friendly cafe/bar on site which offers a wide selection of snacks and drinks throughout the day and as the villa is on a walled complex with 24 hour security, and accessed through an electronic gated entrance, you are ensured peace and tranquility at all times.
The villa is just a one-minute stroll from the main road where you will find a number of bars and restaurants, beauty salons and barbers, along with a couple of well stocked convenience stores within 5 minutes walk. The local dolmus bus stops at the entrance to take you 5 mins into the lively resort of Hisaronu with an abundance of shops selling clothing, jewelery and souvenirs at excellent prices, as well as excellent restaurants and bars offering entertainment ranging from lively discos to traditional Turkish belly dancing.
Alternatively take the Dolmus bus onto the quieter and more bohemian beach area of Olu Deniz for a more chilled back atmosphere, amazing sunsets and fantastic sundowner cocktails
10 mins in the other direction is the bustling market town of Fethiye with its large marina, extensive waterfront bars and excellent fish market and restaurants.
There is a Dolmus bus stop outside the complex and a 24-hour taxi rank just along the road to take you further a field - a taxi call button is also installed at the complex entrance. Several places offer car and jeep rental though this is usually not necessary as public transport is cheap and abundant.
For the more adventurous, Babadag mountain offers adrenalin junkies the opportunity to paraglide down to the beautiful beach resort of Olu Deniz. There is mountain biking nearby and horse riding in the ghost village of Kayakoy. There are also numerous ancient sites that can be visited by local tours.
For those with local knowledge the villa is located 100 metres past the petrol station in Ovacik, on the right towards Hisaronu, on the same side as the 24hour taxi rank, 200 metres down a private track.
Fantastic Villa, excellent location on the complex, a short walk to shops and bars also the Dolmus bus stops top of the road and for 7tl about £3 you can ride into Hisaronu which is full of shops and excellent resturants. The villa has everything you could need including towels bath and beach. We meet alot of people during our time who was very friendly and helpful when needed, will recommend to anyone.
Also we went on a Jeep Safari trip with Alibabas who are situated in Hisaronu, was a highlight of our trip.
Thanks again for an amazing holiday.

Great villa, lovely situation. Beach towels provided as well as indoor towels. Half hour walk to centre of Hisaronu, but Dolmus stops outside of complex. Well maintained surroundings. Felt like a real home from home.

Villa Menzara is a great place for a holiday. It was clean, well equiped and far enough from the busy road to be pretty peacefull. The whole complex was very well kept with gardeners working every day watering gardens etc. The pool was lovely and never that busy i.e. no more than about 15 people at the busiest times and frequently only us, and there is of course an excelent public transport system in Turkey and so getting about is cheap and very easy. The only draw back to the area is that it is very geared towards the tourists and has lost a lot of the real Turkey. All that said it is a stunning location with plenty to do. A pool outside the front door, one of the most beautiful beaches you could find and enough trips, activities and ruins etc to keep most people busy for a couple of weeks if they can find the energy to do it. We have a 10 year old and a 4 year old and they loved the freedome. Totally safe at the villa and the beach doesnt do big waves so swimming is very easy for little ones. Most evenings we just sat outside and cooked on the bbq and chilled with a few drinks. It was very relaxing but you do get the music from the surrounding hotels at night but its not loud.
This has been a great holiday and villa Manzara is a great place to go. I would recomend this villa

Perfectly situated villa next to a fantastic, clean pool which all the family enjoyed. Quiet location with a relaxed feel, but close to dolmuses/taxis for shops/trips out. Site kept in lovely condition and staff very friendly (even if we didnt always entirely understand each other!) Villa very clean and good sized - bedroom balcony very welcome for that cool breeze early morning or late evening (what fabulous weather!) We all enjoyed, our children being 20, 18 and 13. Also enjoyed the company of cat and her kitten, who, ion turn, enjoyed good feeding whilst we were there-hope they stay happy too. Thanks Peter

The Villa was just what wed hoped for set in a very peaceful location yet still close to the local amenties. It was spotlessly clean, well equipped and just as described. We would say it had the best position on the complex as the sun was on the terraced the whole time - although theres plenty of shade to take cover. Positioned right next to the beautiful pool with wonderful views of the mountains. Wonderful!

It was my first trip to Turkey and I had a fabulous time! The location of the villa is perfect for an all round holiday. You can visit the famous Olu Dinez beach, visit other local towns or stay at the pool which is right in front of the villa. It has the best views on the complex and there is plenty of space to BBQ and chill out. The local buses run every 5 minutes so you dont have to worry about getting around and they are very cheap. The Turkish people are very friendly and the food is excellent! We had great meals out and some very good night life too. Check out the boat trips as they are a great way of seeing the fabulous coastline and lots of swimming off the boat too! Looking forward to going back.
It was my first trip to Turkey after always spending the school holidays in Spain and I was a bit nervous and did not know what to expect.
However, after our week at the villa I can assure you that we are not going back to Spain again.
The trip felt like an old-fashioned holiday where you cant spend enough, eat like kings and laze around.
The Turkish are very, very friendly and the Dolmus (taxi bus) was embarrassingly cheap.
With regards to the villa, you can tell that the owners want you to have a good time and relax and we didnt wish for anything, loads of towels and bedding.
The bonus was that the pool was in front of the villa and we could keep an eye on the kids while having a barbie and drink.
Had another fantastic holiday here. Weather was superb, villa was in fantastic condition, clean and tidy. It was great to have a full shopping order delivered and waiting in the fridge on our arrival. The staff on site have done a superb job on the gardens and were incredibly helpful throughout the stay. We used Baris and his taxi a few times and found him very reliable and cheap. It was nice to see the kittens were still playing outside the villa. The garden bean bags are a great addition. Cant wait to go back next year!
We had a fantastic holiday at the villa. Everything we wanted was there, and more - a real home from home. We spent a lot of time lounging around on the patio, and had bbqs several evenings. The cats we were asked to feed just added to the enjoyment, they were no trouble at all. The complex was very pretty, with the communal & private gardens and the pool well maintained. All perfect. Wouldnt hesitate to recommend it, and cant wait to go go back!
We have just returned from our second family holiday at Villa Manzara this year and we would unequivocally recommend this villa to anyone who appreciates quality accommodation in a picturesque hillside setting surrounded by magnificent mountain views. Peace and tranquillity abound, but just 5 minutes taxi/dolmus ride and you can be eating and drinking in the lively town of Hisaronu and it's many quality restaurants and bars. A couple of minutes further is the slightly quieter sea front village of OluDeniz with its famous blue lagoon.
In our opinion the villa occupies the prime plot directly overlooking the superb pool area with stunning views and sunsets!
in superb setting quite but with easy access to beach/nightlife huge pool villa had all mod cons very clean would recommend this complex to any one visiting this area of turkey
