8 June - 24 June
I really enjoyed my holiday in Villa Aysun and Villa Katife. I had two wonderfully relaxing weeks in Villa Aysun with just birds and crickets for company. A tortoise wandered into the garden one day and the path to the village was blocked by some lazy goats on my last morning. The villa was not too isolated though and I was able to buy everything I needed in the village shops. I swam in the pool two or three times every day and it was kept very clean by your pool man. As requested he came in the early morning while I was asleep to do the cleaning.I was very happy at Villa Aysun.
Your agents Nick and Aysun were at the villa on the first evening to welcome me and show me round the villa. They are a charming couple and did their utmost to make sure that my holiday went smoothly. They work so hard and they are on the go all the time helping holiday makers, booking taxis, arranging outings and all done with a smile. I thought they were lovely.
When I moved to Villa Katife the holiday changed completely. It was much more energetic, as I was not on my own any more. We visited all the local bars and restaurants, swam in the sea and took taxis into Fethiye to spend money at the market. We took a boat trip to Rhodes and joined hundreds of holiday makers looking round that beautiful island.
Unfortunately I wasn't able to find a Turkish teacher anywhere, so my turkish had to be put on hold for a couple of weeks. I did revise in the villa in the evening though and learned some useful new vocabulary. Everyone in Uzumlu wanted to practise their English on me and wouldn't let me demonstrate my Turkish.
Overall the holiday was a great success and I hope to be able to return in the future.
With best wishes
