Beach Nearby Ideal for Kids Walk to Village

Within the idyllic mountains of a peaceful Kaya village in the Southwest of Turkey, this family-friendly two-bedroom villa provides the ideal relaxing retreat. With its private swimming pool, fantastic views over Kaya Valley and fully-equipped kitchen, there’s little reason to leave – but you should, since ancient rock tombs, lively local markets, and fantastic walking routes abound.

Cube-shaped Villa Besh is traditionally the Mediterranean in style on the outside with rustic stone and whitewashed walls. Inside, the decor is contemporary and minimal, giving the impression of extra space and light. Main standout features include the glass mosaic pool and roof terrace area, where you can stargaze at the evening skies or sit around the dining table with your morning coffee.

The master room boasts a comfortable super-king size bed, while the other bedroom has two single beds – both are equally stylish and welcoming and have en-suite bathrooms and plenty of space for storing your belongings. The kitchen has a dishwasher and an oven, and there’s a living and dining area with cosy seating and a flat-screen TV with a DVD player for a home-from-home stay.

Outside, you’ll find the stunning roof terrace, with the table shaded under a wicker pergola and several chairs and loungers to find your prime sunbathing or covered spot. Whistle up a refreshing fruit smoothie using the villa’s blender, choose a book from the library and head to this patio area for a relaxing afternoon by the mountains. If you get too warm, dip your toes in the swimming pool – kept utterly private by a beautiful flower-adorned wall and tall wicker fence.

If you’d like to see the local area, the villa is a short 1.1km from Kayakoy Ghost Town, with hundreds of abandoned Greek-style houses and churches. You can walk off-the-beaten-path track through the olive groves, orchards and quiet lanes lined with stone cottages. With the sleepy hamlets of this idyllic part of Turkey surrounded by a hem of pine forests – it’s the perfect place to go exploring.

Villa Besh is near Kaya, a sleepy village 8km south of Fethiye in southwestern Turkey. Nestled in the mountains and overlooking Kaya Valley, it’s a quiet spot and is an ideal place to go walking or hiking. The famous and atmospheric Kayakoy Ghost Town is only 1.1km from the villa – with abandoned Greek houses and buildings – and you’ll find traditional restaurants and shops in the area too.

For keen walkers, there are a myriad of trails from Kayakoy Ghost Town, which lead to remote beaches like Cold Water Bay (around 5.5km away) – a stunning family-friendly bay with turquoise swimming waters and a soft, sandy shoreline – or to the monastery ruins of Afkule (around 4km away), dramatically perched on a cliff ledge above the sea.

The town of Fethiye is a 15-minute drive to the north. It's best known for its natural harbour and ancient rock tombs including the 4th-century B.C. Tomb of Amyntas, carved into the mountains. You can browse the markets in Fethiye and pick up fresh produce or sample the local delicacy – delicious gözleme (thin dough crepes). Then, finish off the day with a treatment at one of the Turkish Baths. There are also plenty of restaurants, cafes and bars for a drink or bite to eat.

Near-shore islands are popular for day trips by boat. 20-minutes to the south is the sandy beach at Ölüdeniz, which is sheltered by a lagoon and is prime swimming and water sports spot due to its crystal-clear and calm waters. You can also head 24km to Butterfly Valley – a designated nature reserve, which is a (you guessed it) valley home to diverse butterfly species.

Kayakoy

The "Ghost Town" of Kayaköy was once inhabited by a substantial Greek Orthodox Christian; Artisans who left for Greece in the populations exchange 1923. Many of the old stone houses have been brought back to life and the village is again alive. There is a bohemian feel and a mix of restaurants cater for those enjoying the healthy village air. The cute beach at Gemiler is the closest place for sea swimming here. The area was the inspiration for Louis de Bernieres’ novel Birds Without Wings. Whilst here do try the local Gozleme pancakes.

Local days out include the resort of Gocek along the coast, Tlos ancient site and the Saklikent Gorge. Slightly further afield are Dalyan or going south, Patara for its sandy beach and ruins.

Reviews

  • Perfect!

    on 28/07/2023

    The villa is the perfect place from which to enjoy the enchanting surroundings - the sunset views of the 'ghost city' of Kayakoy were breathtaking. The host could not have been more helpful or accommodating. He was available and informative, but also discrete.

  • Exceeded expectations!

    on 20/05/2023

    Baris’ house exceeded expectations. Karakoy is a rural village and the roof terrace where we spent most of our time lets you soak up the surroundings - from the lovely goats, sheep, bird life and neighbouring frogs! When it was hot we used the covered sun bed to relax in the shade and the different seating areas worked well. The house is a 20 minute walk into the centre where there are lots of restaurants. Most of them do focus on British style food but there is a great BBQ Turkish on the way into town - walking right (not on Tripadvisor) and we discovered Muzzy’s which also did more traditional Turkish (as well as English). You can spot the nesting storks from the roof, my husband ran a few days (so good circular route) and we enjoyed pide and gozlume for lunch. Baris was very helpful, always to hand and the place was well attended. There are books in the TV unit. We didn’t do OluDeniz as we wanted a more traditional experience and the location of Baris’ super home gave us just that.

  • Great place!

    on 21/04/2023

    This is a really great place to stay! Great rooms, loads of space, amazing view and a pool and rooftop to enjoy the day/sunset. Our children (5 and 3) didn't want to leave. Baris went out of his way to make sure we had a great stay.

  • Totally recommend!

    on 22/11/2022

    Just after we arrived, this place reminded me of what a properly good villa should be like. Homey, cosy and comfortable, with lots of personal touches and thoughtful details. And of course a wonderful welcoming host. We stayed for a week and it was one of the best experiences we had in Turkey. The house is beautiful and does feel like home, and the rooftop with the pool is really great, you can see the whole Kayaköy from there. The village itself is not very big, but it has enough roads to walk around, to see some nature and farm animals, also there are a bunch of fantastic grill and breakfast restaurants. Totally recommend this place, we would happily return again. Thank you!

  • Excellent

    on 06/05/2018

    We stayed in Villa Besh and were bowled over by the views from the terrace. The whole valley was spread out before us. After that we expected the rooms and food to be equally spectacular and they were. Baris was an excellent host and advised us on many excursions. We were only sorry to leave before completing them all. Still there's always next time. Thank you for a unique experience.

  • Beautiful Private Villa with Breath-taking views

    on 30/01/2018

    My partner and I stayed here in November 2017 and had a fabulous holiday. The Villa is completely private in a quiet location with view across the Kaya Valley to the Ghost Town. There is a stunning,private rooftop pool and sun area. It is inclusive of all modern amenities to an excellent standard. The owner, Baris is an hospitable host for whom any request is promptly carried out. I would recommened this for anyone wishing for a secluded getaway.

  • Fantastic

    on 18/08/2017

    We stayed for 7 nights with two children aged 8 and 10. The villa is fantastic and very well equipped, there wasn't anything that we didn't have. The roof terrace was very impressive and beautiful at sunset. Kids loved the pool, we felt safe as it is very private. We didn't hire a car as there was a great local taxi who just appears when you need him. Booking for 2018 again but for two weeks as one simply wasn't enough.
