About Hugh Pope
The picture: the owners in the natural swimming pool that is our pride and joy at The Lazy Olive. We are Hugh Pope and Jessica JJ Lutz: Hugh is a British writer and author of three books on Turkey, the Turkic World and the Middle East. I lived in Istanbul for 28 years. Jessica is a writer, therapist and independent scholar. We built The Lazy Olive ourselves as our dream home and after 15 years we'd like to share it with like-minded spirits.
Why Hugh Pope chose Olympos
Silence, apart from the frogs croaking in spring or the pulse of cicadas in high summer. Swimming in our unique, soft natural pool. Seclusion, since the nearest paved road is a mile (2km) away. Delicious village food, if you engage our housekeeper to cook for you. Sparkling days out on the water, when you charter a boat or join a group leaving from a nearby beach (Adrasan or Cirali). Classical antiquity, with many ancient and beautiful Lycian cities within range (Olympos 10 minutes, Phaselis 25 minutes, Myra 1 hour, Arykanda 1-1/2 hours, Termessos/Aspendos/Perge 2 hours, not to mention the fine museums in Antalya and Demre). Dinners on the beach. But above all, two acres all to yourself to enjoy in the midst of a lovely mountain park.
What makes this House unique
The natural pool, the deep silence and the sense of privacy.
