Hisaronu Area Guide


Hisaronu is Fethiye’s lively resort, set in the mountains above the busy harbour town and the stunning beach of Oludeniz, very closely neighboured by the residential holiday village of Ovacik, with very little to decipher where one begins and the other ends.

A former small farming village that was discovered as an overflow for hotels after the resort of Oludeniz ran out of building land, which today is a very busy mountain resort settled at the foot of the famous Babadag Mountain, known worldwide for its paragliding exhibits with hundreds of solo and tandem flights from its summit every day.

The resort has one main street that winds through the village, closed off to traffic in the evening as the street is filled with tourists and locals browsing the shops, drinking in the bars, or dining in an array of international restaurants, some heading off back to their hotels or private accommodation in both Hisaronu and Ovacik and some staying out to dance the night away in the buzzing nightclubs till the early hours followed by an early morning kebab or bowl of soup in the 24-hour restaurants.

Property in Hisaronu is never too far from the centre, all within a short walk to all the amenities, though usually rather peaceful locations away from the many street, and when Hisaronu real estate is very close to the centre, there is no need to worry too much about any noise from the bars and clubs as the doors are closed or the music is turned down low as the clock strikes midnight.

Investment property in Hisaronu will only offer a summer rental period as most of the bars and restaurants are closed down for the winter, with just a handful remaining open for the ex-pat community that live in the Hisaronu and Ovacik areas all year round, though if you buy property in Hisaronu with some form of heating, as the winters in Hisaronu can be rather cold, then there is a small chance of long term rentals, though the income will be less than taking summer holiday rentals.

Though a mountain resort, apartments and villas in Hisaronu for sale are never from a beach, with Oludeniz easily reached by the local dolmus services, or on a cooler day it’s a lovely walk down the mountain road, though most would find it a difficult task to manage the walk back up as it is extremely steep.
