THE SMOKEHOUSE COTTAGE

Kayakoy Cottage Rental Photos and Description

A relaxing rural getaway in a historically and scenically fascinating Village

The Cottages have been carefully restored to create a beautiful and relaxing rural getaway. Each boutique Cottage has a private area and the property is surrounded by gardens, fruit trees and a rustic stone wall. The property boasts panoramic views of rolling hills and sweet scented pine forests with a mountainous backdrop. Above the Valley you can see the sea twinkling between the hills behind the abandoned Greek Village that forms the heart of Kaya Village.

The beautifully tiled pool area is raised above the property and overlooks the picturesque Kaya Valley. The pool area is flooded with sunshine all day then is lit up at night time for relaxing and star gazing or a midnight dip.

Around the Village, neighbours can been seen tending to their animals and bustling about with domestic chores or collecting wood and herbs from the mountains. A must is to sample their delicious home made yoghurt, cheese, honey, fresh Village bread, eggs, olives and sun ripened fresh fruits and vegetables.

Kayakoy Village is located around the historic ruins of Levissi. The ruins lie nestled against the hillside, forming an open-air museum or “Ghost Town”. Levissi was abandoned following a population exchange between Greece and Turkey in the early 1920’s. Exploring the site via worn pathways weaving between houses and churches is a wonderful experience.

The ruins of Levissi were the inspiration for the Louis De Bernieres novel Birds Without Wings.

To quote - 'Birds Without Wings begins in the early 1900s in an idyllic town in South West Anatolia during the declining years of the Ottoman Empire. It traces the fortunes of one small community in which Christian and Muslim lived and how traditions have co-existed peacefully over the centuries'

Kayakoy is in a Valley raised above sea level surrounded by coastline and forest.

Car Hire/Local Buses: Car hire is not necessary but if guests are thinking about renting a car, it is a very good way to see the best of what the area has to offer. If guests are interested in particular in seeing the Lycian ruins scattered about the area then a car is strongly recommended. Aircon in the car can be a welcome relief during the hottest months (July/August) so guest may wish to hire a car if they want to sightsee in comfort.Car hire is charged on a weekly rate or a daily rate for bookings less than a week.

The local transport in the area is the 'Dolmus ' bus. Previous visitors to will be familiar with this system - you can board the bus anywhere from the side of the road or waiting at a designated stop. Buses are regular and on time. Many characters are met on the Dolmus bus. A good cultural experience! The Kayakoy Dolmus travels direct to Fethiye Town, Gemiler and Olu-Deniz beaches every 1/2 - 1 hour and fares are between 3-6 Turkish Lira

Walk trails: Well marked walk trails surround the Village, which itself is actually a stopoff on the famous Lycian Way walk trail from Fethiye to Antalya.

Some walks include:

Cottages to Af Kule monastary 1hr

Levissi ruins to Oludeniz (fantastic walk) 2.5 - 3hrs

Levissi ruins to Cold Water bay 45mins

Kayakoy to Fethiye via old cobbled village road 2hrs

Cottages to Gemiler beach - asphalt road or forest trail 1.5hrs

Shorter walk trails are found around the Village.

On the Lycian Way

Hisaronu to Faralya 5-6hrs (take dolmus to starting point).

Walking and Birdwatching books are provided with botanical and historical notes.

Kaya Cottages are amazing if you want to escape the rat race, and just need to relax. My fiancé and I booked a week's holiday there recently and couldn't believe how beautiful the cottage and the surrounding areas were. Claire the owner of the cottage was incredibly helpful answering any question we had and also helping us out by pointing us in the direction of some really lovely walks in the area. These cottages represent excellent value for money. They are simple, yet beautifully decorated with everything you need to have a quiet day lounging by the pool, or an evening meal cooking a Turkish BBQ. Alternatively if you fancy going out for a meal, there are plenty of restaurants in Kaya that can cook for you instead - including one at the bottom of the driveway! The cottages are incredibly well connected to Fethiye with a dolmus literally on your doorstep that departed every hour while we were there (low season), stopping at Hisaranou and Ovacik (where you could change to go to Oludeniz). We didn't struggle for transport at all during our stay, enjoying the convenience of the bus on the door step, but also the peace of the village. Travelling 10 mins down the road by bus was not a big problem! I really can't say enough how much we enjoyed our time there - we only wish we had longer.
Recommended for:  Age 55+, Adventure Seekers, Sightseeing, Romantic Getaway
Owner's Response: Thanks so much for that and hope to see you again soon, hope the next time can be a bit longer. I hope the welsh is coming along well!

Wir haben das Haus und die prima Betreuung von Clare sehr genossen, z.B. wurden wir schnell und einfach mit ausreichend Holz versorgt da die Nächte schon sehr kalt waren. Das Haus liegt etwas erhöht d.h. frühstücken am Pool ist ein Genuß in jeder Beziehung. Für Wanderungen ist es ein sehr guter Startpunkt. Die Einrichtung ist sehr liebevoll und man fühlt sich umgehend wohl. Wir waren nicht zum letzten mal an der lykischen Küste!

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at The Smokehouse cottage. Clare was an excellent host - she left us to our own devices but was at the end of the phone or popped by every couple of days in case we needed anything. She was able to suggest days out, places to eat and there is information about the local area provided in the cottage pack. The setting is beautiful and very quiet. Cottage very comfortable and roomy for 2 people. Very clean pool which is swept every day and private. If you want to get away from it all but be well placed to explore this stunning part of Turkey then I would recommend staying here. The local Dolmus bus system is great too, although it is very safe to walk around as well.

We had a really wonderful holiday in this beautiful cottage, which is situated in a quiet village on the south coast of Turkey, near to Fethiye. Claire, the owner, is super friendly and incredibly helpful. She even secretly organised a cake for my wife's birthday. The cottage is really homely, with a lovely outdoor eating area and a private swimming pool and area to lie and soak up the sun. It is well equipped for cooking, has plenty of books (novels and local guides), and Scrabble. The bathroom is great, with a really strong hot shower, and there's plenty of space in the living area and kitchen.

There are loads of excellent restaurants within easy walking distance (most will pick you up and drop you back if you don't fancy a stroll under the stars), including Cin Baal, which is an incredible restaurant specialising in lamb, where you can get a special booth to yourself and can cook you own delicious meat on a grill that they bring to your table - it is very cool.

The area is perfect for swimming, exploring ancient ruins, or accessing parts of the Lycian Way, which takes you along the breathtaking coast. The nearest beach, where you can hire kayaks and organise other activities is about 10 min drive away and other beaches are easily reached walking or by car.

Overall, the whole holiday was superb.

The two cottages, Smokehouse and the Stables, have been very beautifully restored and are immaculately maintained. There are many special decorative touches, that make the cottages homey yet elegant. For example, hand embroidered locally produced bed linens, lots of antique tools and equipment, colourful potted plants in the courtyard, and plenty of books and local information. There is now also Wi Fi available, which worked the whole 10 days of our stay in September. The cottages are high on a hill (but easily accessible by car) with far reaching views of the mountains, in a charming farming village with few signs of the bad effects of tourism. The village people are open and friendly, and we enjoyed many long walks in the peaceful country lanes and up on sheep tracks. Highly recommended and many thanks to Claire for her friendly assistance.
