Hisarönü and Ovacık

The villages of Hisarönü and Ovacık are located on a small plateau under the famous Babadağ mountain which also overlooks the incredibly popular Ölüdeniz. Anyone wishing to place investment in Fethiye within a close proximity to the famous beach of Ölüdeniz and Turkey’s ‘Blue Lagoon’ should look no further than Hisarönü and Ovacık, each of which have something completely different to offer property buyers in Turkey.

Hisarönü is definitely a party town and is perfect for those looking to invest in property to attract young couples and families. In the past couple of decades, roads were paved between the resort and Kayaköy and onwards to Ölüdeniz as the resort was originally intended to provide accommodation for the increasingly popular beach resort at Ölüdeniz. Today however, Hisarönü is a bustling town in its own right with a lively strip of restaurants, bars, clubs and shops for tourists to enjoy.

Ovacık is certainly the quieter side of town with only a few small restaurants and bars catering for the people who prefer a quieter evening out.  Fethiye property in Ovacık is generally modern and luxurious with attractive price tags ranging from £150,000 to £500,000.
