Local Area: For a taste of real Turkish village life, in an unspoiled rural setting that is extremely convenient for exploring a variety of fascinating historical sites, the picturesque village of Uzumlu would be hard to beat. Uzumlu makes an excellent base for holidaymakers wishing to experience many different types of days out that Turkey has to offer from boat trips & beaches to ancient ruins. Situated just a 15-minute drive along a good main road from the bustling harbour town of Fethiye, Uzumlu nestles 500 metres above sea level on a fertile plateau surrounded by imposing mountains. The beauty of the setting & the charm of the village are popular with discerning visitors, but Uzumlu remains very much a proper working village, with the local community relying on agriculture & traditional crafts as its source of income. Uzumlu translates as “with grapes”, & vines producing an abundant variety are much in evidence. There are several good quality restaurants, mini markets in and around the village.
Along with the mini markets are the post office, a butcher and baker supplying freshly cooked bread for most of the day. Uzumlu is home to a small market on Friday's selling the usual fresh fruit, vegetables and salads. Many other useful shops are also available. The village square with Mosque, large Plane tree and the all-important tea house are the quintessential meeting point and hub of village life. Wandering around the small lanes that fan out from the square, you can sometimes spot local women weaving cotton on traditional pedal-looms in front of their houses. You may well be offered some of their wares to purchase. So there is no need to rely on your hire car all the time in order to eat out or get supplies. A short trip to Fethiye, Hisaronu, Calis and Oludeniz, all within an easy drive of Uzumlu will satisfy guest's who enjoy serious retail therapy. You will appreciate the unlimited supply of shopping opportunities as well as a much wider variety of eating-places.
The nearest beach is Calis with its long promenade, just 10 minutes away. Only slightly further is the secluded bay of Katranci. The famous lagoon beach of Olüdeniz can be reached by car in around 25 minutes and Saklikent Gorge under an hour. The award winning 17 kilometre long Patara beach with fabulous white sand is also less than an hour away. Those more interested in archaeological sites can reach Tlos, Pinara, Xanthos and Letoon in around an hour. Even Pamukkale is within the scope of a day’s outing thanks to good quality roads. However, one of the most stunningly situated classical sites of the region lies much closer to home. Ancient Cadianda, which has only been partially excavated, can be reached by car or on foot from here by those not deterred by a steep, uphill hike. Perched on the top of the hill behind Uzumlu, it has glorious views over the bay of Fethiye. Cadianda’s relative obscurity compared to that of more famous sites such as Ephesus means that you can wander undisturbed.

About Andrew and Katie King
We have spent some time travelling the world, so you can appreciate that our investment in a home in Turkey is a recommendation in itself. Having rented many holiday villas ourselves in many parts of the world over the years, we expect high standards and understand the expectations of holidaymakers. We have ensured that the villa meets with the needs of anyone wishing to take a holiday with family and friends. As we consider Almond Villa our second home, there is everything we would need and expect in our main home for comfort and convenience. All of this is there for the use of our guests.

Why Andrew and Katie King chose Üzümlü
It really does have everything you need to have a great holiday. It caters for everyone. In fact we liked it so much when we rented it, when our friends Carol and Pete mentioned they were selling it, we bought it!! The pool is one of the best in the area, large and with easy access via shallow steps. It’s perfect for large groups especially families with different needs. Often 3 generations of families enjoy valuable time together in the peaceful and private setting of Almond Villa. Groups of friends, particularly those with children can enjoy quality time in the evenings when the children are safely tucked up in bed, eating on the spacious terrace, watching the sunsets, which Uzumlu is renowned for. Children are a well catered for with safety being paramount. The terrace has a metal railing around it and a locking gate for safety when small children are staying. We have provided stair gates, cots, highchairs, and many extras to save you having to bring therewith you. You won’t be disappointed and will return home feeling relaxed. It is also wheelchair friendly, we can provide many accessories to make your visit safe and easy if travelling with elderly or disabled party members. We are fully compliant with new Turkish regulations for rental property.

Très bon accueil. Superbe villa rien ne manque et le village et les environs sont magnifique.
Je recommande cette maison, rien ne manque.
Thank you for the wonderful comments. We are pleased that you had a good time and its good to know that the villa and the area was enjoyed by you and your family. We appreciate your time and effort in adding this review. You are all very welcome to come back any time.
Very best wishes,
WOW, your can't get better than this!!
This was our first trip to Turkey. We wanted a fairly large villa with a decent sized pool, as we were teaming up with our three son's. 2 having just finished Uni and 1 about to go. plus any girlfriends that might be about at the time. I have to say Carol the owner is an outstanding host, extremely helpful with all aspects of the holiday including advice and help with flights and car hirer. The villa is amazing set in a beautiful location and not too far from some lovely places. (although I would recommend a car to get the benefit of seeing some of the surrounding and slightly further afield places). Carol has thought of everything including local mobile phone which makes it cheap and easy to arrange things or to get in touch with Maureen, the lovely helpful lady who looks after the villa for Carol. There is nothing missing from this home. If you want somewhere quite but in easy reach of the more touristy bits this is the place to stay. Just don't book it for when we want to go, again and again. Carol and Maureen, thanks for everything. we will be back
It is lovely to have good reviews and I am so pleased that Andrew and the family have found my villa to meet and exceed their expectations. The villa is large and roomy with lots of privacy and is so suitable for many different parties with young or more mature holidaymakers. When we go on holiday we expect a high standard of accommodation in an area where we can relax or do lots of different things. When we bought this villa, my husband and I made sure that we supplied everything that we would have wanted ourselves on a holiday and to a standard that we would expect. I also believe that it's important to ensure that the party has all the information required, both before and during their holiday. This always ensures full enjoyment, peace of mind and safety. It has been a pleasure welcoming the King family to my home in Turkey and hope to have them come back soon. Many thanks,
Just a quick note to let you know we are back in "sunny" England and we firstly want to thank you for all your help in the preparation and arrangements which made us feel this holiday was one of the nicest we have had. The company you put us in touch with for the airport transfer/car hire and wheelchair delivery were excellent and very efficient - turning up on time and getting us safely from a to b. My mother-in-law was particularly grateful for the provision of the commode and asked that her thanks be passed on to you for providing this. Your villa is beautiful and well equipped. We would love to return to your villa next year (end Sept/early Oct) and will be in touch re dates. You are certainly one of the most efficient, helpful and pleasant people we have dealt with when booking holidays and would have no hesitation in recommending you to others. We feel refreshed and well rested after our holiday and thanks again for allowing us use your lovely villa. With best wishes and kind regards from us all............
Very good villa in a really nice calm village
We were more then happy with our Holiday Villa. We travel a lot but this was by far the best equiped villa we ever had. All was perfect and we had a great stay there. The village is small and quiet and it is just 20 min with car to reach some great beaches. We found some good and really cheap Restaurants not far away. The pool was nice and the Service before our stay and during our stay was more then good. A big thank you to the owner Family King and to Dave and Rose.
Thank you for your lovely comments and your appreciation of the quality and equipment in our second home.

You are all very welcome to come back any time. Very best wishes
