Welcome to "The Unspoilt Turkey"

Far from the madding crowds, there are still many beautiful parts of Turkey left unspoilt.

Nestling in a wide valley sheltered by the foothills of the Taurus mountains of Lycia, the village of Uzumlu is just 20 minutes from Turkey's beautiful Turquoise Coast and the attractive resort town of Fethiye - yet a world away from the noise and bustle of the main package tour locations.

Discover Uzumlu . . .

We discovered the delights of the Turquoise Coast and the wooded hills of Lycia surrounding Uzumlu some years ago. We developed this guide to Lycia and the Turquoise Coast (Turkey's most beautiful region) so we could share our love of this part of Turkey with the rest of the world.

The coastal resort town of Fethiye and the rugged coves and sandy beaches of the Turquoise Coast (Patara and Olu Deniz are the most famous) are just 30-40mins away from this picturesque and secluded spot. And if you want to sample some of the best of Turkish food, there are a number of excellent restaurants close by.

. . . and the Turquoise Coast

On the western edge of the famous Turquoise Coast of Turkey and the beautifully wooded Taurus mountains of Lycia rising to 10,000 feet, our villa in Uzumlu is ideally situated for outdoor activity holidays of all kinds. As well as some of the best walking in Turkey, there are plenty of other things to do, such as sailing, diving, riding, river rafting and sea-kayaking, as well as one of the best spots in Europe for paragliding.

This unspoilt region offers some of the most attractive walking in Turkey. The famous Saklikent Gorge and the renowned Lycian Way & St. Peter's Trail are close by. Both Saklikent and the Lycian Way can be reached in a short drive from our villa in Uzumlu. Saklikent is particularly impressive as the largest river gorge in Turkey, and can be walked for several kilometers. The Lycian Way was rated by the Sunday Times as one of the top 10 walks of the world. This is walking in Turkey at its very best!

And for those who want to head inland from the Turquoise Coast to explore the interior of ancient Lycia, many classical sites from Greek and Roman times can be found right on your doorstep, including Xanthos, Patara, Tlos and Cadianda. Patara is especially interesting. Not only has much of the site of the ancient city of Patara been recently excavated, but Patara beach itself is one of the longest - and most undeveloped - white sand beaches on the whole Turquoise Coast of Turkey. Patara beach and the surrounding area is protected as one of the last remaining nesting sites for the loggerhead turtle in Turkey.

Or if you prefer, you could just laze beside the pool at our peacefull villa in Uzumlu with a cool drink in your hand to enjoy the sunshine and the fabulous views across the wooded valley slopes . . .
