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 & around the village.
Along with the mini markets are the post office, a butcher & a 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 & 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 & 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.

Car: Recommended

Uzumlu is a traditional Turkish village, centrally located just inland from the beautiful harbour resort of Fethiye. With stunning mountain views it offers a peaceful retreat from the busy nearby resorts of Fethiye, Calis and Olu Deniz. The area has much to offer all tastes, both sporting and cultural. At 500 meters above sea level a gentle breeze is a welcome change from the often extreme heat and humidity of the coastal resorts, particularly at the height of summer. Visit Almond Villa's own web site for more detailed information, www.turkeyvilla.org . We can assist with car hire and transfers, which are payable locally on arrival. You'll be met at the villa by our local property manager who will show you around the Villa and familiarise you with the local area. He will also be available 24 hours a day should you need him. 2 local mobile phones are provided for your use. A complimentary welcome pack will be provided. Free WIFI Internet, you just need to take your laptop or other devices.

Other Activities: White water rafting. Turkish baths. Mud baths. Ancient archaeological sites.

Almond Villa, peaceful, stunning views, private pool. Wheelchair friendly + WiFi

Ski: The ski resort of Seki can be reached in a hour from Uzumlu. The season lasts from November to April and whilst the snow conditions are generally very good, it is not regarded as an international resort. The facilities may not match up to the more well known resorts in Europe.

About the owner: 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. Please feel free to call us anytime for a chat about your own specific requirements to ensure suitability. We would love to hear from you.

Why the Owner Chose Üzümlü, Yeni, Yeşilüzümlü/Fethiye/Muğla, Turkey:
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 traveling with elderly or disabled party members.

The Unique Benefits at this Villa:
The unique layout of the house will ensure everyone can enjoy their holiday and some stunning features make the house a pleasure to live in. We have provided stand-alone fans, plus ceiling fans in each bedroom for your added comfort as well as air conditioning in each bedroom. Great barbeque area, plenty of sun loungers with many modern extras, Wi-Fi, home theatre system and lots of DVDs for your enjoyment. There are shelves full of books for you to take as you wish. The house is large with lots of space and privacy as well. The views are stunning from the terrace and pool area with no traffic noise, a real 'get away from it all' setting to completely wind down after arriving for your holiday. The veranda is great to get out of the mid day sun or spend the evenings eating, drinking and playing games. The personal service of our English manager will ensure that you leave nothing to chance and will be able to relax having everything covered. We can also provide a variety of mobility aids from commodes, ramps both fixed and removable, patio ramps to provide easy access to the terrace area.
