Overview

The villa is situated at a ten minute walk from the main square in Uzumlu Village via a footpath or a forest road for cars and offers a magnificent view of the valley and surrounding mountains. At night, the sky is full of stars, giving the villa its name--Yildiz Evi (Star House in Turkish). The swimming pool is fed from the fresh water well located in the garden. The Zen-like surroundings with a horizon-hugging pool, olive tree shaded terrace, and gardens full of seasonal flowers and aromatic herbs, this is the place to unwind and enjoy life at a leisurely pace. With an abundance of the bounties of land and sea available fresh in the local markets, your vacation will provide the perfect opportunity to unleash the chef in you.

Amenities
The villa is fully furnished and offers all modern amenities including a wireless ADSL network to provide you maximum comfort and freedom. You may snooze in the climate controlled rooms inside or choose to spend your entire day outside where spacious, well tended gardens, terraces and a pool with a view provide many shaded areas to relax. The views over the valley and the mountains are simply splendid and the sunset, viewed best from the pool terrace, is awe-inspiring. Come, stay and enjoy life unfolding at a slow pace.

Access
The villa is within a 45 minute radius of many attractions and only a 50 minute drive from the new Dalaman International Airport with numerous flights to and from the UK and Europe. If Roman stadiums, Lycian Temples and Greek cities interest you, you will be spoilt for choice. The historical sites of Cadianda, Tlos, Patara, and Kekova are all within easy reach. And then there is the Med! Olu Deniz, voted the best beach in Turkey and perhaps one of the most beautiful in the world, is only 25 minutes drive away. Take a Med cruise on a Gulet, a traditional Turkish wooden boat, and rejuvenate your spirits or simply soak in the gentle waves of the Med and let the minerals in the sea and the rays of the sun wash away the stress. Or if you wish to stay local, enjoy the serenity, purity and hospitality of this traditional Turkish village.

Summary:

This beautiful villa is set under the star-filled sky of Uzumlu, giving it its name "Star House" in Turkish.

We live in a big city and wanted to holiday somewhere quiet and in beautiful natural surroundings where we could walk. Villa Yildiz Evi gave us all that and more. We rented a car which enabled us to do some day trips in the general area and to shop in Fethiye and to go to some of the excellent restaurants just outside the village. But from the house itself we could walk into the village for basic supplies and to the restaurants around the village square. We also enjoyed many walks from the house into the forest behind, following both roads and footpaths. We even walked to the ruins at Kadiyanda one day. We also spent a lot of time at home swimming and relaxing (including cooking). Our teenage children appreciated the wonderful wi-fi access. The house is very private and has been excellently designed to cope with the warm weather and it was so nice to sit on the verandah and admire the great views. The garden and pool are well taken care of by Mr Iskendar, who was kind enough to give us some local information. I would recommend this house to anyone looking for a time away from the hustle of the city. The owner was also very helpful when making the booking and very prompt with replies to queries. We would certainly love to holiday in this house again!!

We have never been on a villa holiday before so didnt know what to expect. We were very pleasantly surprised. The villa is extremely spacious with large common areas. There is a lovely shaded veranda which contains a hammock and an amazing outdoor bed, that can easily hold 3 people, which we used for relaxing and reading. The facilities were of a high standard with a fully equipped kitchen, ironing board etc and a hairdryer in the main bathroom cabinet: however our teenage girls thought a full length mirror would have been useful!! The bedrooms are all air conditioned which was needed at night as we visited in August. Also the rooms all had mosquito screens, so the windows could be left open if preferred. Downstairs the four external doors meant that the accommodation stayed airy with a welcome through breeze. The grounds are extensive with a lawn that we used to play badminton as well as a large BBQ and outside dining area.This is such a beautiful outdoor space that we gladly self catered on several nights especially after the Friday market and the delicious fresh trout costing pennies. For the other nights the local restaurants, the Grape Garden and Winehouse in particular, offered varied enough menus to please the whole family. The pool was always warm enough to enjoy and not heavily chlorinated. It also has underwater lights so you can indulge in some night swimming! The pool and outside areas were maintained at least once a day by the very friendly Mr Bey who was a great source of information and always willing to help. Mrs Bey (who runs the Lup Lup Cafe in town) was also wonderful and even arranged a birthday cake so that we could surprise our daughter on her 16th birthday. This very special couple could not have been more helpful and are certainly a huge asset to this villa. The secluded location is delightful, but the down side is a very steep walk back from town however there were always local taxis available in the market square. We would definitely recommend and go back to this villa.

It’s always a bit of a gamble when you book and pay for accommodation online, but we were not disappointed with Yildiz Evi! It was wonderful. The villa is set on the hillside and surrounded by the countryside. There are neighbouring villas but they do not overlook Yildiz Evi or spoil it in any way. The villa is spacious, light and airy and had everything we needed. The verandas on the terrace were welcome in the 40degree heat as was the air con in the bedrooms. The bedroom windows also had mossie screens which we were glad of. We used the barbecue several nights and enjoyed sitting at the outside table to eat. Excellent value for money as was the whole Turkey experience. A great surprise were the tortoises that visited the garden, we had no idea they were ‘wildlife’ in Turkey and saw many of them when we were out and about. Iskendar Bey was great – my husband had an ear infection and needed medical treatment. Iskendar was brilliant and sorted out a visit to the doctor – can’t praise him enough – a really lovely chap. He is very discreet and is only there if you want him though, he doesn’t get in the way. The villagers are lovely and friendly too. We used the Candianda store for provisions. There was also a very lovely small restaurant called The Vintage which served good food and Erdal, his wife and son speak excellent English and helped us with our Turkish! There was also The Wine House restaurant and Alya at the bottom of the road into the village but we preferred the less formal atmosphere of The Vintage. There was a market in the village on Fridays which is worth a visit. We would highly recommend staying at this beautifully located property and would definitely use it again. One of the best holidays we’ve ever had!

We had a great time in Yildiz Villa. The location of the villa is great, in the mountains nearby a beautiful and amazing archeological site. I would like to thank again Iskander who was very welcoming and helpful and 300% trustworthy. I would like to recommend this villa to whoever wants a break from the intense tourism of the coast.

We all really enjoyed our stay at Yildiz Evi. It was in a perfect location, near to Uzumlu yet in a peaceful and beautiful part of the countryside. A trip to ruins at Kadyanda - 20 mins away - were fantastic. We also canoed down the Xanthos river out into the sea at Patara and explored the area at Oren where there are many trout farms. Other days spent relaxing at the villa at the pool in lovely surroundings in the company of the cicadas! We enjoyed excellent food both locally and in Fethiye, a 15 min drive. Also a mention to Iskender (Alex) who was more than helpful, a good source of information and very good company! This was our second visit to this area of Turkey and probably not our last!

This villa was in an excellent location close to the village of uzumlu. It was located on the edge of a pine forest with excellent views over the valley. the villa itself was large enough for 2 families with all required amenities. We had a wonderful holiday and would go back to the same villa in the future.

We had a wonderful stay at Yildiz Evi, thoroughly enjoying the peace, tranquility and stunning scenery. The villa itself is very well appointed and comfortable. Mr Bey, who looks after the property is the epitome of Turkish hospitality and is full of useful information about the area. The villa is some distance from the village, we did not find this too much of a problem, indeed it added to our experience, but a little forward planning in terms of groceries would not go amiss. The electricity supply, at least in the evenings, is relatively low at times. All in all, this is a lovely property and location. Fethiye retains its Turkishness (and its mad drivers) and ancient Kadyanda up the road from the villa is a must - go in a small 4 x 4 though!
Owner reply:

Dear Mr. Hammond, Thank you for your review and we are glad you enjoyed your stay, found the villa peaceful, comfortable and surrounded by stunning scenery. We are also glad that you enjoyed the hospitality of our caretaker, Iskender Bey. He is indeed a wonderful guy!. We do apologize for the low electricity in the evenings. This is due to not enough loa d supplied by the electricity company during peek usage times. Uzumlu council is aware of the issue and is going to replace the transformer feeding villas in our neighbourhood with a larger one to ensure adequate loa d. Further, I am not sure if you had the opportunity to explore it but there is a foot path behind the villa (the ancient route to Kadyanda) that takes you to the village in 10 minutes. Or, as you are aware, you can drive to the village in 5 minutes. Thank you again for choosing Yildiz Evi and we look forward to welcoming you again in the future. Best regards, Sam

Yildiz Evi, what can I say? It was the most peaceful and tranquil setting weve ever stayed. Lots of balconies and open plan downstairs, a very convenient downstairs bedroom and bathroom for my elderly parents, plus an airconditioned teenage pad in the roof, a beautiful veranda for the evenings and of course swimming in the pool against a mountain backdro p, what more could you want? We found the villa very bright and airy had everything we needed to make us feel at home. As keen cooks the kitchen was well equipped, the local Uzumlu Friday market was well worth a visit, particularly fresh trout, fruit and exotic veg at the most fab prices. The caretaker Mr. Iskender Bey was absolutely wonderful, my sons and husband went scuba diving one day so Iskender took us into Fethiye and haggled at the butchers, told us the places to go and places to avoid, a very friendly and most helpful chap. The villa appears at first to be tucked away, however wihin a few hours we were used to driving around the local road and into Fethiye. There is even a footpath (not suitable for the elderly though) which makes it merely a 10 minute walk to the village. The village iteslf is well equipped, we were there practically every day for fresh supplies as 7 of us were there together food ran out pretty quick but it was never a problem! There is so much to see and do, even or 10 day stay wasnt enough, we managed to visit Cadianda, the most amazing pre-roman ruins just past Uzumlu, go scuba diving, go on a Sunday boat trip to the very fancy Gocek and a must visit place.. the fantastic Saklikent Gorge and ad Kayakoy (deserted Greek village) as well as Fethiye itself and vast Tuesday market Some of the good restaurants include Mazaik Bahce near the fish market in Fethiye and Cin Bal in Kayakoy (read tripadvisor reviews) but if you want proper hearty turkish food, visit the local Lokantas before you get into Fethiye which are better value for money and the food is fantastic. Contrary to many peoples belief, we were actually amazed with Uzumlu, it has several petrol stations, baker, butcher, main post office, several groceries, cafes, restaurants and burger joints (try the frsh orange juice at Lup Lup cafe) as well as estate agents! We all wish we could have stayed longer. We will defintely rent this particular villa again purely for its secluded, non overlooked aspect suitable for a private family break.

The villa met our expectation in every way. It was extremely clean and had all the facilities required for a truly relaxing holiday. If you want a holiday away from crowds and noise you could not ask for a better location as it is set at the end of a pine forest road over looking a mature olive grove with superb views of the valley and surrounding mountains. The views of the sunsets from the veranda are outstanding. The local village still retains its charm and has all the amenities you need including a traditional bakery and several reasonably priced restaurants catering for a range of tastes. A hire car is essential and forward planning for your groceries is required. An excellent villa for a holiday away from it all and we would certainly use it again.
