Faralya Area Guide

The stunning small village of Faralya is located a short way around the coast from the famous beach resort of Oludeniz, an elevated village that sits overlooking the turquoise Mediterranean Sea and the tranquil Butterfly Valley which is only accessible by boat or by abseiling down the cliffs if you dare.

A peaceful hamlet away from the busy resort areas of Fethiye, part of the famous Lycian Way, which is a trekker’s paradise which stretches approximately 550km along the coastline all the way to Antalya taking in some amazing coastal scenery and ancient sites along the way.

Official part of the bigger Ununyurt village which is made up several small areas such as Kabak, Kizilcakaya and Kozagac and others, though apart from Faralya and Kabak these other areas are virtually unknown to the everyday tourists of the Fethiye area.

Reached via winding coastal road from Oludeniz, with a sheer drop most of the way, and almost totally surrounded by nature with areas pine clad mountains and forest areas with Faralya property often being rather secluded with luxury Faralya villas affording the most amazing views across the sea and the local islands along with some more traditional Faralya property too, though these may be in need of renovation.

Real Estate in Faralya is quite rare as building permission is rarely granted in the stunning hillsides to preserve the natural area so if when you buy property in Faralya you are guaranteed that those stunning views and the beautiful natural area will always be as stunning as it is today.

Property in Faralya is defiantly not for the party goers as the village only offers restaurants based in the small guest houses along the Lycian Way and a handful of local shops for your every day needs, though the short drive to Oludeniz, Hisaronu and central Fethiye will offer you a great nightlife and plenty of shops and supermarkets for the weekly shopping, and a car is rather essential in Faralya as homes can be located some distance from the one main bus route which only runs at certain times of the day.

If it’s a laid back authentic lifestyle you search, away from the bustling resorts then a home in Faralya could be for you, tranquil and peaceful with amazing panoramic views, and should you have the budget to invest in Faralya you can expect to earn very healthy rental incomes with Faralya visitors often being honeymooners  in search of privacy or those celebrating special birthdays and anniversaries who area always willing to pay that little extra for the perfect view for that special occasion.
