Villa
A charming village cottage in the heart of a rural Turkish village. Kaya Koy is a famous valley portrayed in Louis de Bernirre's book, Birds Without Wings, where the deserted Greek village still haunts the nearby mountainside. Set in a rural farming valley, it's like stepping back 50 years where the farmers still plough by horse and the womenfolk work the lands in traditional panteloons. Get bread and freshly laid eggs from your friendly neighbours and enjoy the peace and tranquility of a real Turkish village away from the hustle and bustle of the big city....A charming village cottage in the heart of a rural Turkish village.

About the neighbourhood
This is a good way to sample a real Turkish dwelling although modernised to suit Western tastes, but set among other small traditional Turkish homes in Kaya Valley, quite well known for its deserted Greek village featured in Louis deBernierre's book, Birds Without Wings. This small but adorable cottage is in a very tranquil valley but also close to the bustling towns and holiday resorts of Olu Deniz, Hisaronu and of course the big market town of Fethiye. All are a short drive away, as are the more famous archaeological sites from the Byzantine, Lycian and Roman times. A fascinating place to explore.
