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.

Details for The Stables Cottage 1 Bedroom, Sleeps 3, 1 Bathroom

There is a large terrace area at the front of the Cottage with flowers and gardens surrounding and large umbrella for shade as well as seating for dining and relaxing.

The Stables has an open plan kitchen and cosy sitting room with small dining table, fan, single divan bed and decorative fireplace. There is a CD player and a large collection of books for guests use. The Cottage plan makes excellent use of space and many guests comment on how much larger it is that they expected.

The pretty blue tiled shower room is a decent size and has large basin and toilet. The Cottage sleeps up to 3 adults comfortably.

Guestbook comments from the manager

Very well renovated cottage in the Kaya valley. Reasonably well equipped, comfortable, beautifully situated. Pool is too small for swimming, but Ok for a dip after a hot day. Kaya is far enough away from the tourist hotspot of OluDeniz to make it a real Turkish experience. Some good walking from the cottage front door, including to an isolated beach we had to ourselves. The local Dolmuses are regular, reliable and cheap and you really do not need a car, other than for the airport transfer. Claire (owner) was helpful and on hand to offer advice.

Exceeded expectations

  • 5 of 5
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.
