We have just returned from what can only be described as an idyllic fortnight staying at the Katz Villa.
The villa was utterly immaculate not to mention very tastefully decorated, everything you could possibly need during your stay was provided-Hairdryers (We found four!) beach towels, even extension leads!
Each room had individual air conditioning and ceiling fans-with temperature well into the hundreds that was certainly more than welcome at night.
The area was peaceful, walking distance to the shops & the harbour front-although we tended to get a taxi there as it was cheap & the weather was too hot to walk any distance. Next to the three villas, there is a small farm owned by a turkish lady who gives a wave & shouts an hello everyday.
The pools were cleaned and the beautiful gardens tendered daily.
Maggie, the villa owner is lovely and very approachable-she was happy to answer any questions we had throughout the booking process and made you feel reasurred about your stay. ie-you knew she was always at the end of the line and felt confident you would receive help should it be needed.
The two neighbouring villas are english owned & very friendly.
We have met a good friend in Mustafa, the taxi driver recommended in the Katz villa information book. He speaks good english & will help you in anyway he can. He was extremely reliable & has given us his email address to keep in touch with him & so our son can also become penpals with his daughter of a similar age.
The area of Fethiye was wonderful, so many wonderful places to eat out (One of our favourites was The Arena restaurant-on the corner of the harbour)
The people of Turkey are so friendly wherever you go. They love children, chat, pass the time of day, always make you feel welcome & just love a bit of good old fashioned bartering! So never consider paying the asking price in shops, there are some bargains to be had!
We visited Fethiye market (Tues) it was without doubt the biggest and best market by far weve seen in Turkey to date!
We visited Rhodes for the day travelling by hydrofoil, a good trip, although we spent a little time comparing prices with different trip companies making them fully aware of what we were doing. This proved worthwhile as they all tried to undercut each other & as a result we got a very good deal!
all in all a wonderful, relaxing holiday we were all sad to be leaving although, plan to return sometime soon!
Thanks Maggie for letting us stay in your lovely holiday home.
Alison, Craig & boys
