Absolutely Brilliant!

  • 5 of 5
We stayed at the Smokehouse Cottage for Christmas, New Year and beyond. My friend stayed a bit longer. The property itself is just brilliant, very clean, everything you would ever need, fully equiped kitchen, very modern bathroom. As we were there in winter, there was a wood stove in the living room (wood provided) and heaters in all other rooms, plus plenty of extra blankets for extra cosiness. There were still a few restaurants open in the village and they suited our needs just fine, one of them is a bbq restaurant and you sit in front of an open fire and grill your own selection of meat and veg, very nice and of course it being winter, nice and toasty! We had lunch/dinner in Fetiye a few times as well, but mostly we just cooked in the cottage. There is a little corner shop nearby that stocks just about everything you would need or else there is a brilliant food market (including fish and meat) in Fetiye or of courses the big Markets on Tuesdays and Fridays. We met quite a few locals at Caspers (pub) and all were very nice, New Years Eve was a big party and the owner of the pub even drove us home (as at that time of the night it seemed very far to walk ..). We rented a car through Clare (very cheap) and did a number of day trips which was very easy and saw lots of beautiful historic sights, gorgeous nature and surroundings. We especially lke the fact that this time of year there are hardly any tourists anywhere, which obviously has the drawback that a lot of things are closed, but all we needed was always open. We had a wonderful trout lunch at Saklikent Gorge being the only customers there (probably seats around 500). From the cottage it is quite an easy walk down to Gemiler Beach which is very pretty and there is a little Cafe just on the water, makes for a very relaxing afternoon! Clare, the owner of the cottage(s) is just wonderful, it seemed like nothing was too much trouble and it felt like we were staying at the friend's place rather than in rented accommodation. All in all we had a very wonderful, fun and relaxing time. Would definitively recommend this place to anyone and hope to be back some time very soon. Karin and Frank

Rural tranquility

  • 5 of 5
My husband and I were looking for something a little bit different, away from the main resorts, in this area of outstanding natural beauty in Turkey. We couldn't have chosen better, and I can honestly say it really is as good as the pictures. We stayed in Smokehouse Cottage, a beautifully clean, well-kept Greek-style cottage. We arrived late and were shown to the cottage by the local restaurateur. Clare looked after us from then on, speaking fluent Turkish where our language skills failed, and supplying fresh eggs and milk for the first day. The place is idyllic, the people were warm and hospitable, and it was with great sadness that we left at the end of the week! For a peaceful retreat, this is the place I would choose over any other.
