Sitting pretty on the hillside in charming Faralya village, on the outskirts of Ölüdeniz, is luxurious four-bedroomed Villa Turkuaz. This family-friendly villa is contemporary and Mediterranean in style with a whitewashed exterior, rustic stone walls and natural-coloured furnishings. The landscaped gardens are dotted with beautiful trees and plants, tapping further into the feeling of rural serenity. From the terrace, there are breath-taking views of the sea and the tree-lined mountains.
Perhaps the main stand out feature of this villa is its stunning outdoor area. Think large infinity pool which looks directly onto the coastline below, a shaded seating area with comfortable sofas and plants creeping over the wooden structure. We must give honourable mentions to the barbecue and al fresco dining area too where relaxation and stunning vistas come hand in hand. Sit back with a drink and watch the interrupted sunsets (or sunrises) in their full majestic hues.
Laying across four acres of land – completely unseen from anybody outside the property – this villa is completely private. Inside, there are four spacious bedrooms sleeping up to eight people. Floor-to-ceiling windows flood the villa with lovely natural light, and from some of the bedrooms, there’s direct access to the pool area. There’s also an open-plan kitchen, living and dining room – fully equipped with modern amenities for a hassle-free, home-from-home, experience.
Situated in a tranquil countryside spot in the Fethiye region, Villa Turquaz is the ideal villa for anyone who wants a luxury holiday in a peaceful location. You have the best of both worlds; the villa is only 300 metres from the sea where you can unwind on the sand with your favourite book or don your snorkels and swimming gear and explore the coastline. Fethiye and Ölüdeniz are within reach too – perfect for families or friends who’d like to enjoy a quiet holiday with plenty of things to do nearby.
Please note that there is a 300 metre gravel road up leading up to the villa.
Villa Turkuaz is in peaceful Faralya village, about 15km south of Ölüdeniz and 30km south of Fethiye. The villa is in a rural and quiet spot and is perfect for escaping the hustles and bustles of modern-day life. If you’d like to venture out, it’s only a short 300m walk to the nearest sandy beach and 2km to local restaurants and bars where you can try authentic Turkish cuisine like Köfte, balls of beef or lamb, served with yoghurt.
For adventure lovers, you can join the Lycian Way – a popular way-marked footpath which traverses around the coast of Lycia, from Fethiye to Antalya. Highlights along the trail include spectacular views over the coast from above Kas and Kalkan, the castle, harbour and sunken ruins at Ucagiz and the breath-taking descent to Faralya, above the cliffs of Butterfly Valley – a nature reserve that’s home to diverse butterfly species. You can join the trail for a short day trip or a more extended overnight stay with camping spots along the route.
In Ölüdeniz, about a 30-minute drive from the villa, you can swim in the famous blue lagoon or relax on Belcekız Beach, with crystal-clear waters and a soft, white sandy shoreline. The vibrant and lively port city of Fethiye is also within driving distance, and there you’ll find a shopping centre, alongside restaurants and cultural sites. You can head to the harbour lined with water-front bars or rock tombs like the 4th-century B.C. Tomb of Amyntas. There’s also a fish market and other markets selling everything from handmade rugs to fresh produce. At the market, you can usually sample delicious gözleme (thin dough crepes) and then finish off your day at one of the Turkish Baths for a relaxing massage or detox in the sauna.
