We have been married for over 20 years and have 2 teenage children. We live in North West England and both have very busy jobs. We have done a lot of travelling over the years and wanted a place of our own where we could kick back and relax. We chose Turkey because it is such a beautiful and varied country. The food is great and the people are friendly. There is also so much to do in Turkey and the cost of living is considerably cheaper then the UK. However, the climate has to be the biggest attraction. With fantastic hot summers and short winters, it really is a wonderful place to be.

We chose Uzumlu as it is away from the hustle and bustle of the coast yet within very easy reach of a wide range of attractions as well as beautiful beaches. The villa is close to the laid back unspoilt village of Uzumlu but in a more rural location. We fell in love with the villa, it's position and the uninterrupted views across the valley. The landscape is truly breathtaking. The villa is 1 of 6 villas and therefore not isolated but due to it's front line position, it offers privacy and is South West facing and therefore benefits from the sunshine all day long. We were looking for a villa with a pool that was light, spacious and also had lots of outdoor space. We were so lucky to find Villa Maria as it met and exceeded all that we had hoped for. It really is so peaceful and relaxing, you don't want to go home!
Villa Maria has beautiful views from every window. It is almost 360 degree panoramic views and this is what we love about the villa. The pool is lovely to cool down in and the steps into the pool are great to sit on and enjoy a relaxing drink or read a book. We love seeing the farmer bring his goats to graze on the land in front of the villa and watching the birds. It really is the best of both worlds, peace and tranquillity in abundance yet a short drive away all the amenities and restaurants and bars you may need.
Thank you so much for letting us stay in your wonderful villa. Location and views were amazing! We have stayed in family sized villas for the last 20 years but yours was one of the best! It was so spacious, light and airy and beautifully furnished with good quality fixtures and fittings. Kitchen was well equipped and showers were excellent. The pool and outside space were gorgeous - plenty of room for everyone to do their own thing! We loved the little local village and shops and could get everything we needed there. I have never seen so many birds and wild flowers. So huge thanks, we all had a really brilliant time. (family of 5 with old teenage/twenty + sons)
Villa Maria is just 50 minutes drive from Dalaman airport and 2kms from the friendly village of Uzumlu where you will experience the real, unspoilt Turkey. Uzumlu which in Turkish means 'grape', has numerous vineyards and a traditional lifestyle. You will find a number of bars and excellent restaurants specialising in home-made dishes. There are also many local conveniences such as a bakery, butchers, cafe and a number of grocery stores. There really is everything to hand in the village that you may need during your stay. On Friday the village hosts a market where you can buy wonderfully fresh local produce.
The coast is just a 15 minute drive away where you will find more excellent restaurants, bars and shops together with water sport activities. Fethiye is 15 minutes drive where there is all the facilities of a town. It has a fish and vegetable market as well as hosting the biggest market in the area every Tuesday. You can enjoy choosing your own fish at the fish market and taking it to one of the local restaurants who will cook it for you. This bustling town also has a harbour where you can explore the surrounding islands by boat.
Within 20 minutes of Uzumlu are a number of holiday resorts including Calis which has a beach and a promenade as well as a variety of restaurants and bars. Also close by in the hills are the holiday resorts of Ovacik, Hisaronu and Olu Deniz.

The much photographed Blue Lagoon of Olu Deniz is just a 25 minute drive away with it's beautiful crystal clear waters, shops and night-life. All of these resorts lie within the hills surrounded by pine forests. Cadianda, an ancient Roman site and the Lycian way are situated within close proximity to Uzumlu and provide an opportunity to explore the history of this area of outstanding natural beauty with it's pine forests, mountain streams and rugged hillsides.It truly is a stunning, quiet and tranquil location and one which will capture you. You will want to visit time and time again.
A car is recommended when staying at the villa and there is ample parking for a number of cars within the villa grounds. There is also a local bus service that runs regularly nearby but for those who wish to kick back and relax, the villa and private pool are secluded, the only things that may disturb you are the occasional bleating of the goats that pass by with the farmer and the clicking of the cicadas. You really can't help but relax and enjoy this rural retreat.
