About Mrs H Hughes
My husband and I live in Scotland and have recently retired from childminding, which we did together for 24 years.. We first visited Turkey in October 2005 on the recommendation of a Turkish lady working in our local travel agency, who organised our stay in Olu Deniz. We were surprised by how green and lush the countryside was and were so taken by the warmth of the Turkish people that we made a rather spontaneous, but not regretted, decision to buy an apartment by Calis beach off plan.
Mrs H Hughes purchased this Villa in 2007
Why Mrs H Hughes chose Seydikemer
In spring 2007 we returned to the area to see what progress had been made on our apartment and were taken by the construction company to visit a new site they were developing in the countryside. I was just ‘blown away’ by the views and still have that same feeling each time we go. We weren’t sure we could afford to buy the villa and had a ‘get out clause’ written into the contract, but we are so glad that we managed to go ahead. We love the area for the wealth of things you can choose to do if you are feeling energetic and the relaxed atmosphere when you’re not. We love Fethiye bay for the interest the islands offer and for its beautiful sunsets and we love to see snow on the mountains for part of the year whilst we are basking in the sunshine.
What makes this Villa unique
The position of the villa offers a quiet, private holiday, relaxing by the pool, looking out over unspoilt countryside.

Two weeks in August
The Villa was lovely and quiet and everything in the owner's description was accurate. It was well maintained and clean and the pool area was great. Our children (12&9) enjoyed the pool especially. The owner provided excellent customer service and was happy to answer questions before and after arrival, The welcome pack of supplies was a nice touch. The Villa is in a rural area so I would recommend a hire car but everything of interest within 30/40 minutes, ( driving around was not a problem), Good restaurants in nearby town and very reasonably priced. Local people lovely. Would recommend the Villa and the area for a relaxing holiday away from the crowds.
Thank you Jon.
I'm glad you and your family enjoyed your stay and I was glad to be of help. Thank you for your comment about car hire. I'm sure it helps others to know that there is plenty to see in the area.
Great holiday, super villa, lovely owner
The villa was very well maintained, modern and clean. We went as a family of 6 (Mum, Dad and four kids - three older teenagers). As soon as we arrived in the villa we knew we had 'picked a winner'. The villa is on a quiet small complex and the complex staff are friendly and helpful. The villa is a real 'get-away' and you will probably need a vehicle if you want to make the most of the attractions that are all within a forty minute journey (we also took a satnav with us with European maps, and we found getting around a doddle) - although if you really want to be lazy you can just make the most of the villa and just hang around the pool, which is delightful. There was no wifi at the villa, which for us adults, was nice as we were further removed from work emails and such like. We would go up to the bar and complex pool, which is maybe 150/200 foot away, and wifi is stable and free there - there was no expectation that you needed to buy drinks at the pool to use the pool or the wifi and the teenagers were there an hour or two each day; however, we did buy soft drinks at the pool and our tab for the 6 of us, at the end of the two weeks, was negligible. Be aware that the complex is in the mountains and there can be the sound of crickets when you are poolside at the villa, but I found the sound quickly became normal and just part of the background. The bottom line is that our family had a great time. The only other thing to mention is that Helga (the villa owner) couldn't have been any more accommodating, I Had lots of questions when I was choosing a villa to rent and Helga's communication, and ground work to find the answers, was excellent, she really helped to make sure that everything went smoothly. I would not hesitate in recommending Helga's villa to my friends or family.
If you are looking for a holiday away from the crowds, this is it. The villa is roomy and well equipped, with 4 bedrooms and 3 bathrooms, fully air conditioned and outside a terrace with private pool. But the best thing about this villa is its location - the views onto the surrounding mountains are simply stunning. You need a hire car to explore the area, so you can experience something different every day - boat trips, scuba diving, shopping and eating out in Fethiye, ancient ruins, all this less than an hour's drive away. But at the end of each day, you can retreat back to the tranquility of the terrace with only the sound of crickets and those great views.
We are certainly going back next year.
Ceylan Villa with pool
We arrived late on Wednesday evening having travelled from Sheffield at 11am to the villa and the keys were waiting for us. Tired, we unpacked and went to sleep and woke early next day to shop at the supermarket in Fethiye, 45 minutes drive away. Returning to the villa late morning on Thursday we then enjoyed our wonderful villa with our own pool located in the mountains with beautiful views. The villa is luxurious: air conditioning in every room, three bathrooms (one en suite), water cooler, fridge/freezer, cooker, microwave. The neighbours and other residents are very friendly and meet at the club bar which sits at the side of the large communal pool some 100 yards or so away. Twice there was a community barbeque which we attended, and on one evening we went on a bus together with 20 or so of the other residents to a lovely restaurant in Fethiye (Sundial) to celebrate the wedding anniversary of a couple who live 4 doors away and who we only met at the club barbeque - very welcoming.
This is a beautiful location, but you need a car. Our philosophy is that we spend all year round at home chasing around in cars to be somewhere on time and have a 16 year old daughter still at home who has a busy social life, doesn't drive of course. so we spend this holiday mainly relaxing by the pool. There is a restaurant in the local village but you will need top be prepared to mainly self cater or travel out at night to eat. Note that the laws in Turkey are strictly no drinking if you are driving. We enjoyed eating away from the villa on about 4 or 5 occasions, but we are happy to cook simple food in the evening so we can benefit from the wonderful climate Turkey provides. This is the 3rd time we have been to this same villa and we have every intention of booking again next year.
