Here at Turkey Homes are very pleased to offer this stunning secluded 1 bedroom villa for sale in Fethiye, located in the historical village of Kayakoy in the south-west Turkey.
Kayakoy is located approximately 8km south of the centre of Fethiye, a stunning peace haven found approximately 275m above sea level, accessed via a steep winding mountain road and thick forest areas. When you reach the top of the mountain road, you may wish to stop the car by the side of the road and take in the breathtaking views over the valley and to the abandoned Greek village that sits on the hill on the opposite side of the village.
Kayakoy is split into three areas, Karakeciler (better known as Keciler) is the eastern side of the village, Kinali sits on the western side and the central area is known as Kayakoy, which is home to the abandoned village that is today a museum visited by thousands every week who come to see the ancient homes, school and churches that still stand in disrepair today, after the Greeks were forced to leave the village and Turkey for political reasons back in 1923 after living harmoniously alongside the Turks for many years.
Property Location and Details
This stunning little cottage is located in the Kinali area, the far end of the village where the road continues down the mountain towards the gorgeous Gemiler beach.
A lovingly restored home that was once just a stone ruin that sat derelict for many years, and has kept many of the wonderful traditional features and was awarded a plaque from the Turkish Ministry Of Tourism & Culture, for “Sympathetic Restoration Of Turkish Heritage” for the sensitive restoration of the property.
The stone house sits behind a high stone wall, totally secluded from the outside world, giving the owner or guest complete privacy from any passers-by or prying eyes. Having stunning mature gardens, mostly laid with natural stone crazy paved terrace areas with planted side borders with mature trees and shrubs and several terracotta pots dotted around for ease of maintenance.
The corner of the gardens hosts a traditional stone Turkish style fireplace/barbecue with large concrete benches with comfy cushions, perfect for the early or late summer evenings that tend to have a certain chill in the air, sitting on the bench with a lovely log fire burning with cool glass of wine and a spot of alfresco dining. Next to the barbecue area is a shaded pergola for relaxing away from the heat of the sun.
A raised level of the garden also hosts a lovely plunge pool to take a relaxing cooling dip in the heat of the summer months, with space around to sit and relax and take in the beautiful views across the valley.
The two storey building has an upside down design, due to the ground floor being carved out of the rocks, therefore the living area is located on the first floor, accessed in two ways, either by a stone exterior stairway at the side of the plunge pool, where you reach a large shaded wooden balcony with built in seating and double French doors opening into the lounge area, with solid wood flooring and beautiful beamed ceilings, both in dark wood, and whitewashed walls. Furnished with traditional style Turkish wooden furniture and cast iron wood burner for the cooler winter evenings.
Off the lounge, you have a separate kitchen, having light tiled flooring and further beamed ceilings, with dark wood units and light marble work surfaces and small picture window overlooking the local green areas. The bathroom is also located off the lounge, a fully tiled wet room style shower room with an electric water heater that supplies the household hot water supply.
The lounge area also hosts a whitewashed stone staircase with wooden railings, leading down to the ground floor level, where you find a large double bedroom, with tiled floors and more stunning beamed ceilings. The bedroom also hosts the second access to the house, further French doors which open out to a large stone terrace leading to the barbecue area.
The property is on the market fully furnished to a lovely traditional style and comes complete with all white goods and electrical appliances.

Kayakoy is an ancient village set in the mountains between the popular beach resort of Oludeniz and the busy harbour town of Fethiye on the stunning Lycian coastline of southwestern Turkey.
From Fethiye, there are two ways to reach the valley, one by heading up the mountain road and driving through the peaceful residential village of Ovacik and the lively resort of Hisaronu, then back down the other side of the mountain.The second, and more scenic way, is via what is known as the old road, through the mountains and thick forest areas via a steep winding road, as you reach the top, you may want to stop and take in the beautiful views over the valley, looking over the green landscapes and the scattered rooftops.
