Fethiye Villa Rental Photos and Description

Weavers Cottage, Kaya Valley, nr Olu Deniz, romantic villa/ hide-away, sleeps 5

After a three year break, we are delighted to once again offer for rent captivating and enchanting Weavers Cottage, a beautifully restored authentic 300 year old Turkish Cottage/Villa, winner of the Sympathetic Restoration of Turkish Heritage. Set on a small hillock, this charming, whitewashed cottage/villa is set in a delightful private walled garden. On passing through the courtyard door you will enter the terraced garden, offering both sun and shade, and a delightful plunge pool with amazing views. The large shaded terrace leads into a small entrance hall and then into a spacious handcrafted open plan kitchen. The kitchen is fully fitted and will suit the most accomplished of chefs. The beautiful high ceilinged split level sitting room has a galleried mezzanine, occupied by a double bed. With 2 double bedrooms, 2 bathrooms and full air conditioning, Weavers Cottage offers all a family could wish for, but is also the most ideal romantic hide-away for couples seeking relaxation and an escape from the hustle and bustle.

Recommendations: Guests return to Weavers Cottage year after year. Once you have been to Weavers, you will be enchanted forever. Our visitors' book describes the house and Kaya as 'Paradise.'

Car Hire: Car hire is not essential. The local bus 'Dolmus' stops 200 metres away every 30 minutes in the summer. The local buses are cheap and convenient and stop on request.

Airport Transfers: We can arrange taxi transfers for guests to and from Dalaman Airport. The cost for 2012 is approx £80 for a return journey of up to 4 people.

About Mrs Lesley Wood

Hello. I live just outside of Winchester in a small town called Alresford. Although originally from Liverpool I have lived here now for 20 years. I spend a great deal of my time travelling, both in the UK and abroad, but the one place I want to return to time and time again is Kayakoy, Turkey.

Mrs Lesley Wood purchased this villa in 2003

Why Mrs Lesley Wood chose Lycian and Turquoise Coast

We first holidayed in Olu Deniz, Turkey in 1995 and loved the area. However, it wasn't until 2002 that we discovered Weavers Cottage and Kayakoy. We felt we wanted to get away from our busy lives and discover the 'real' Turkey. We actually rented Weavers Cottage for a week, and so enchanted were we, by both the cottage and Kayakoy, that on the second day of our holiday we made enquiries to buy Weavers Cottage. Six months later it was ours, a decision that we have never regretted.

What makes this villa unique

Weavers Cottage is not simply a holiday rental. It is a home-from-home. We spend much of our time here in Kayakoy and our cottage is very well furnished and equipped. Weavers Cottage is one of the most comfortable holiday homes in the area.

Beautiful Tranquil Cottage

  • 5 of 5

I have stayed in this beautiful cottage for the last 4 years. The house is furnished to a really high standard with everything and more you would need for a really comfortable stay. The village is within easy walking reach with lots of little restaurants and bars nearby - but away from the noise of the busier resorts.

There is a dolmus which passes the end of the road to the beaches and busy nearby towns

The cottage was cleaned on a daily basis and the girls providing the service were lovely and kind to the children, and very helpful with information about the area and places to visit. The owner, Lesley, is very helpful not only with booking the cottage but advice on airport transfers and car hire etc.

I wouldn't hesitate to recommend this cottage and will be heading back myself again hopefully in the not too distant future.

We have recently returned from Weavers after our fourth visit to this beautiful cottage in its beautiful location..

Weavers offers peace and tranquility in contrast if you prefer a more lively holiday you can take a short drive out of the valley. It is an excellent base for a walking, sight seeing or more sedate holiday just relaxing by the pool and on the terrace

There are very good local restaurants nearby which are within walking distance or if you want to take the bus (dolmus) you can travel out of the valley to Hisoranu, Fethiye and the beautiful Olu Deniz

Staying at Weavers you can have all the home comforts but also experience the traditional Turkish way of life, we call it our bit of paradise and we can truly recommend it.

We will certainly be returning to Weavers next year.

Perfect Getaway

  • 5 of 5

I have just stayed at the Weavers cottage for the second time and for the second time I was not disappointed. The setting is just perfect - so quiet except for the wildlife! I could have spent everyday on the veranda with a book looking at the view.

Kaya is a charming village away from the hustle of the bigger 'very British' resorts - the people are very welcoming and will go out of their way to help you.

The house is comfortable and clean and the plunge pool enjoyed especially by our children.

Can't wait to return!

traumhaftes Häuschen

  • 5 of 5

durch eine unscheinbare Türe betritt man den paradiesisch anmutenden Innenhof des Weavers Cottage. Mehrere Treppchen verbinden die verschiedenen Ebenen der Terrasse, sodaß jeder sein Plätzchen zum entspannen finden kann. Vom kleinen Pool hat man eine herrliche Aussicht über das Gebirge und das Tal und kann den dörflichen Geräuschen lauschen. Besonders einladend ist die blaue Couch zum verweilen, entspannen, lesen, die immer im Schatten liegt. Das Haus selber ist hervorragend ausgestattet und sehr geschmackvoll und liebevoll eingerichtet. Es verfügt über 2 Schlafzimmer mit Doppelbetten sowie einer zusätzlichen Schlafmöglichkeit auf der zweiten Ebene des offenen Wohn- Küchenbereiches. Weiterhin existieren 2 gut ausgestattete Bäder.

Das Dorf selber ist sehr ruhig und beschaulich. Die ruhe wird lediglich ca. 3 mal täglich von Quad-Fahrern, die leider durch das Dorf brettern gestört. Es gibt zahlreiche gemütliche und teils türkische teils britisch angehauchte Restaurants im Dorf. Weiterhin 3 kleinere Geschäfte des täglichen Bedarfs, einen Bäcker, mehrere Gemüsehändler auf der Hauptstraße. Der nächstgelegene Strand ist gut mit Dolmus zu erreichen, ebenso Fethiye. Der Ort ist idealer Ausgangspunkt für Wanderungen in der näheren Umgebung sowie für Tagesausflüge entlang der lykischen Küste. Besonders reizvoll sind auch Bootsfahrten entlang der Küste. Das Haus ist besonders gut für Familien mit Kindern über 5 Jahren geeignet. Der Swimmingpool ist allerdings nur zur Abkühlung und nicht zum schwimmen geeignet. Aufgrund der vielen Treppen und Ebenen ist es für in ihrer Mobilität eingeschränkte Personen nicht geeignet.

Kayakoy is situated 10 km from the port of Fethiye, and only 10 km from the fantastic Olu Deniz beach with its famous Blue Lagoon. Scenically stunning and historically fascinating, the Kaya Valley is one of the most beautiful sights in the whole of southwest Turkey. Surrounded by craggy peaks and mountains covered in pine forests, this lush farming plateau is crowned by the haunting beauty of the deserted Greek village of Kayakoy. Nearby Gemiler beach boasts stunning sunsets and fantastic views of St Nicholas Island. Fethiye is a wonderful port, offering many boat and sailing trips. The market and shops are not to be missed. The Village offers a wide selection of restaurants and tavernas, where you can sample delicious village fare, or for the more sophisticated palates, visit the wine houses or the fish restaurants in Fethiye. The village is self-sufficient with a few simple grocery shops. Fresh produce can be bought from the roadside stalls of the local farmers. Staying in Kayakoy gives one an insight into rural Turkish village life, whilst enjoying the comforts of the 21st Century in Weavers Cottage.
