Villa Babylon has an extraordinary setting, perched high above the area to the east of the Olu Deniz seaside resort, providing sensational views of the mountains that reach, on clear days, as far as those that enclose the Gulf of Fethiye. Terraced gardens surround the property, with citrus, peach, fig and pomegranate trees. A walled garden screens the limestone paved poolside, Spa pool and all-weather children's play area. It is is a dream choice for large groups and extended families, particularly those that relish the idea of an outdoor lifestyle. A courtyard terrace complete with Weber Barbecue presents the perfect space for ‘al fresco’ daily life. It is a laid back, glamorous, family holiday home, somewhere not just to stay but to really enjoy. Recently upgraded, its design, size, elevation and amenities make it the number one choice in Olu Deniz with five individually designed bedrooms ( including two Master Suites) six bathrooms, two magnificent lounges, extensive indoor and outdoor dining and lounging areas, balconies and terraces, all with spectacular mountain views and a private, sun-soaked emerald pool side.

Through another set of traditional cedar double doors lies an outdoor dining area leading to a fully stocked kitchen with a welcome hamper to ensure you can throw together a meal and even cookbooks for inspiration.

Born in Ireland, I now live between London and Sao Paulo, Brazil and try to visit the wonderful Olu Deniz area as often as I can.

Fergal Prendergast purchased this villa in 2004

Why Fergal Prendergast chose Olu Deniz

I specifically chose Olu Deniz for its jaw dropping natural beauty and Villa Babylon for its prime location in a small mountainside villa community. It has super views, receives all day sunshine, has large mature gardens and the lots of outdoor terraced areas but absolute privacy. I redesigned the interiors in a welcoming, modern style with cooling white backdrops and colourful fabrics, funky furniture mixed with antiques to create a unique, contemporary, Turkish environment. If space, style & luxurious marble finishes are what you are looking for, then this is the place for you. My aim is to provide the best villa experience in Olu Deniz.

For stays in early Spring, late Autumn and Winter, rest assured the villas state of the art heating system will keep you warm in every room, even the bathrooms are heated. From October 1st to May 31st the pool and jacuzzi are heated to a temperature of 30C. Additionally, the jacuzzi has heated seats.

Expect a fully stocked kitchen and a generous welcome hamper so you can throw together a meal and even cookbooks for inspiration. Settle in to your holiday immediately, without having to start searching for anything in a foreign country. From the most spacious lounges, a gourmet kitchen, 'dream technology' mattresses, cotton sheets, marble finished bathrooms, the latest appliances, a library of holiday reading, an office space, sun lounging to shady reading areas, and dining terraces, Villa Babylon caters for all tastes. When you wish to leave the villa, there is a comprehensive guide to the locality including a recommended restaurant list and local guide.

Just Wonderful

  • 5 of 5

What a pleasant surprise to arrive and find a villa better than it looks on the photos. We were highly impressed as was my Turkish mother in law and thats saying something! Beautifully designed, everything thought of, perfectly maintained... all we had to do was relax. Look forward to coming back soon. Thanks to Fergal and Dilek for a truly great holiday.

Really Outstanding - 6 stars!

  • 5 of 5

We are archeologists from Germany and stayed at this fantastic holiday haus at the end of March - the villa is very amazing. Everything is very high quality from the kitchen to the wonderful beds. At that time of the year, the evenings can be a little cold and even though the house is big it was still cosy and warm. The pool is heated which meant our children had much fun. We hired a car and were able to explore the town of Fethiye and the historical city of Tlos. We travel regularly to Turkey in the off season so we are very lucky to find a place that we can use at anytime of the year. We hope to be back again someday soon. Thank you very much from all of us. Johan & Family.

Unbeatable All Rounder!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here at the end of October / early November. We got lucky with the weather and had many great days enjoying Villa Babylon. The location is excellent although the beach restaurants shut down at the end of October so at this time you need a car. The photos don't really do the place justice, it's a very big villa and every room is beautifully done. Apart from that the service was excellent and we felt very welcome. We weren't really expecting a welcome drink and a huge hamper of goodies so that was a great start. The layout of this villa was perfect for our large group and I can't think of one thing to complain about. Will definitely recommend to family and friends, it really added a luxurious feel to our holiday. Much appreciated. Derek & family, Manchester.

Absolutely spot on.

  • 5 of 5

Couldn't have sled for more. Not only was the property exactly as described, but the assistance from the Fergal & Dilek was the overriding benefit. The villa was ridiculously well equipped, and so easy for a group to just move in, relax, and enjoy right from the arrival. It's rare to not find fault in a place, but this time no complaints, not even a grumble and we were a tricky group!

Thanks again Fergal & Dilek for helping to make the trip so memorable.

Excellent Villa - highly recommend!!

  • 5 of 5

Excellent villa! Exactly as description says, even better than we thought it might be. This is a large villa and we had 10 guests in total & there was more than enough space for everyone. Ovacik / Hisaronu is approximately a 10 min walk and you can get a dolmus down to Oludeniz only a 5 min walk away! Exceptional service from Dilek the manager, who could order taxis if required as villa was a little hard to find for some drivers. The only negative was that the villa is located on quite a steep gravel slope and we had no safe to lock our belonings away. I will still give this villa 5 stars as it is amazing, the setting, cleanliness is second to none and the area felt very safe!! Also we were givin a really nice welcome hamper which was great!

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for staying and I am very happy that we exceeded your expectations. The great news is that the local Mayor has just confirmed the road will finally get asphalt this year after a seven year wait. For anyone reading this with mobility issues there is the option of going in the other direction to get to the shops and restaurants which takes five minutes longer but is flat. I removed the safe after I enhanced the overall security of the villa with double garden walls, alarm and CCTV systems, however, I am currently making some major upgrades and for the 2015 season the villa with have two master suites both of which will feature built-in safes. I look forward to welcoming you back soon.

Laid back luxury with all the trimmings!

  • 5 of 5

We rented this and a nearby smaller villa for a large family which took lots of organising and I have to thank the owner for being extremely helpful in working everything out. The pictures don't really capture how wonderful the spaces are, large airy rooms, marble floors, fabulously comfortable bedrooms and a sprawling modern kitchen that led to a huge outside space that overlooks the mountains. I should say the smaller villa wasn't bad either, just in a more standard Ikea style so we had all the big evening gathering here watching the sun set. The large gas BBQ was in regular use but Gran's favourite place was the summer seat at the end the garden (she wanted me to mention that!) We all felt very spoiled and I would highly recommend this place especially if you are celebrating a special occasion as it really is a special villa.

Owner's Response: Thanks for taking the time to review your stay, I am so glad that it all went so smoothly and that your grandmother enjoyed her big birthday celebrations. I am making some changes to the garden over the winter so it will all be on one level so the good news is that it will be even easier to access your grandmothers favourite seat on her next visit.

Car: recommended

Located in an area of outstanding beauty in the famed Olu Deniz beach area, this stunning villas elevated site affords sweeping views but plenty of privacy.

With the best location, near the villages, close to the beach and only the mountains as a back drop, the villa is a 15 minute walk from the neighbouring village of Hisaronu, 10 mins from the shops of Ovacik and a 7 minute ride to the beach.

Sitting on the terrace admiring the breathtaking views you will be reminded why Villa Babylon is the ideal getaway for a peaceful holiday, a truly luxurious holiday home with plenty to do and see within easy reach

For anyone interested in gardening, the gardens cascade down the mountain on different levels and have been sown with Mediterranean plants and include a lower terrace sown with scented roses, acacia trees and oleander shrubs all selected for their intense perfumes and a canopied summer day bed provides the ideal place to catch up on reading.

Notes:
The private pool is a refreshing way to spend the afternoon and enjoy the tranquillity of the villa surrounded by the stunning mountain views. The pool is heated from October 1 till May 31st, outside of this period it can be heated at an additional charge. If you decided to go to the Beach or the Blue Lagoon, the Dolmus (local minibus) stop is a six minute walk from the villa and runs about every ten minutes. The journey takes about seven minutes and costs approximately 1.20 (UK). This service will also take you to Fethiye, a nearby bustling town with a large market and supermarket. Car hire is optional but recommended if you wish to make day trips to the many nearby sights or ruined cities such as Ephesus. It's inexpensive and available locally.
