We thoroughly enjoyed our holiday! As described, but exceeded our expectations. The villa was lovely with a home from home feel. Everything in it you could need including a washing machine which was very handy. The complex itself was beautiful and the pool area superb - even better with the villa located right next to it! Very peaceful and relaxing.. Perfect location of the complex being in quieter Ovacik, just a short Dolmus ride away from the livelier Hisaronu. Would definitely recommend and use again ourselves.
Hi amanda, thanks for your positive feedback and we hope you will consider our villa again in the future. Kind regards, peter

The Villa is set in beautiful surroundings with fantastic views of the mountains. Its only a short dolmus away from Fethiye which is a lovely Turkish harbour town, A trip to the fish market is a must, Calis beach is also a nice resort with beach front restaurants and bars. You can get there from Fethiye harbour by river taxi.
The villa turned out to be an oasis away from the neon of Hisaronu and its all day breakfasts, Sunday lunch, tattoo parlours and Sky sports. If thats what your looking for then youll have a great time.
My advice is turn left out of the villa not right.
Peter has made the villa very homely with everything you need for a comfortable stay.
Would recommened villa holidays to all

Fantastic Villa, excellent location on the complex, a short walk to shops and bars also the Dolmus bus stops top of the road and for 7tl about £3 you can ride into Hisaronu which is full of shops and excellent resturants. The villa has everything you could need including towels bath and beach. We meet alot of people during our time who was very friendly and helpful when needed, will recommend to anyone.
Also we went on a Jeep Safari trip with Alibabas who are situated in Hisaronu, was a highlight of our trip.
Thanks again for an amazing holiday.

Great villa, lovely situation. Beach towels provided as well as indoor towels. Half hour walk to centre of Hisaronu, but Dolmus stops outside of complex. Well maintained surroundings. Felt like a real home from home.

It was my first trip to Turkey and I had a fabulous time! The location of the villa is perfect for an all round holiday. You can visit the famous Olu Dinez beach, visit other local towns or stay at the pool which is right in front of the villa. It has the best views on the complex and there is plenty of space to BBQ and chill out. The local buses run every 5 minutes so you dont have to worry about getting around and they are very cheap. The Turkish people are very friendly and the food is excellent! We had great meals out and some very good night life too. Check out the boat trips as they are a great way of seeing the fabulous coastline and lots of swimming off the boat too! Looking forward to going back.

It was my first trip to Turkey after always spending the school holidays in Spain and I was a bit nervous and did not know what to expect.
However, after our week at the villa I can assure you that we are not going back to Spain again.
The trip felt like an old-fashioned holiday where you cant spend enough, eat like kings and laze around.
The Turkish are very, very friendly and the Dolmus (taxi bus) was embarrassingly cheap.
With regards to the villa, you can tell that the owners want you to have a good time and relax and we didnt wish for anything, loads of towels and bedding.
The bonus was that the pool was in front of the villa and we could keep an eye on the kids while having a barbie and drink.

Had another fantastic holiday here. Weather was superb, villa was in fantastic condition, clean and tidy. It was great to have a full shopping order delivered and waiting in the fridge on our arrival. The staff on site have done a superb job on the gardens and were incredibly helpful throughout the stay. We used Baris and his taxi a few times and found him very reliable and cheap. It was nice to see the kittens were still playing outside the villa. The garden bean bags are a great addition. Cant wait to go back next year!

Villa Menzara is a great place for a holiday. It was clean, well equiped and far enough from the busy road to be pretty peacefull. The whole complex was very well kept with gardeners working every day watering gardens etc. The pool was lovely and never that busy i.e. no more than about 15 people at the busiest times and frequently only us, and there is of course an excelent public transport system in Turkey and so getting about is cheap and very easy. The only draw back to the area is that it is very geared towards the tourists and has lost a lot of the real Turkey. All that said it is a stunning location with plenty to do. A pool outside the front door, one of the most beautiful beaches you could find and enough trips, activities and ruins etc to keep most people busy for a couple of weeks if they can find the energy to do it. We have a 10 year old and a 4 year old and they loved the freedome. Totally safe at the villa and the beach doesnt do big waves so swimming is very easy for little ones. Most evenings we just sat outside and cooked on the bbq and chilled with a few drinks. It was very relaxing but you do get the music from the surrounding hotels at night but its not loud.
This has been a great holiday and villa Manzara is a great place to go. I would recomend this villa

We had a fantastic holiday at the villa. Everything we wanted was there, and more - a real home from home. We spent a lot of time lounging around on the patio, and had bbqs several evenings. The cats we were asked to feed just added to the enjoyment, they were no trouble at all. The complex was very pretty, with the communal & private gardens and the pool well maintained. All perfect. Wouldnt hesitate to recommend it, and cant wait to go go back!

The villa is located perfectly being just a 5 minute bus ride to the nearest town with all the shops, bars and restaurants.
The pool was excellent with fantastic views of the surrounding mountains. With the master bedroom over looking the pool from its balcony.
The villa was perfect in pretty much every way. All the extra comforts were there i.e. power shower, washing machine, dish washer, air con etc.
I have already recommended it to friends.

Perfectly situated villa next to a fantastic, clean pool which all the family enjoyed. Quiet location with a relaxed feel, but close to dolmuses/taxis for shops/trips out. Site kept in lovely condition and staff very friendly (even if we didnt always entirely understand each other!) Villa very clean and good sized - bedroom balcony very welcome for that cool breeze early morning or late evening (what fabulous weather!) We all enjoyed, our children being 20, 18 and 13. Also enjoyed the company of cat and her kitten, who, ion turn, enjoyed good feeding whilst we were there-hope they stay happy too. Thanks Peter

The Villa was just what wed hoped for set in a very peaceful location yet still close to the local amenties. It was spotlessly clean, well equipped and just as described. We would say it had the best position on the complex as the sun was on the terraced the whole time - although theres plenty of shade to take cover. Positioned right next to the beautiful pool with wonderful views of the mountains. Wonderful!

We spent two weeks at villa Manzra in July/August. The villa is fantastic, a real home from home, washing machine a real bonus! Great for couples and families alike. We would certainly book again.
Review submitted by Suzie from Sheffield (Submitted: 30 Sep 2007)
A beautiful Villa with a perfect location. Facilities were great, home from home - especially with the dishwasher!! It was that nice that we spent most our time buying fresh veg/fish and doing our own BBQ's on the terrace!!
I would suggest trying the Olive Tree Restaurant (5min drive away in the village beginning with H!!) for us it was the best in the area.
The pool was lovely along with the helpful staff, overall I would strongly recommend this Villa to all family and friends.

Just back form a couple of weeks at Villa Manzarra and would definately go back again. Villa was lovely. In a great location, with great views and a pool you can actually swim in! There was lots to see, do and eat; and even with a young family (4 and 2) getting around was really easy. I've already recommended it to friends and family!

A really great place to stay, facilities very good, relaxing atmosphere, super pool. A very enjoyable first trip to Turkey - so much to do, an ideal property for families.

In a word - Perfect
Beautiful, peaceful surroundings.even my 16 year old twins said how stunning the scenery was - now thats something that doesn't happen very often.
Lovely, well equipped Villa.Great Pool.
We ate out at some great restaurants - too numerous to mention. But the standard of food throughout was very good.
Could go on and on singing the praises, but you get the picture. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend Villa Manzara.
We will certainly going back..........hopefully soon

We have just returned from our second family holiday at Villa Manzara this year and we would unequivocally recommend this villa to anyone who appreciates quality accommodation in a picturesque hillside setting surrounded by magnificent mountain views. Peace and tranquillity abound, but just 5 minutes taxi/dolmus ride and you can be eating and drinking in the lively town of Hisaronu and it's many quality restaurants and bars. A couple of minutes further is the slightly quieter sea front village of OluDeniz with its famous blue lagoon.
In our opinion the villa occupies the prime plot directly overlooking the superb pool area with stunning views and sunsets!

My second visit in May 2006 to this spacious villa with all mod cons, and adjacent to a large pool. Quiet location, in a great setting with views over to the hills and spectacular sunsets. Olu Deniz, Fethiye and Hisaranu are all in close proximity, reached by cheap and regular bus service. These provide shops, nightlife and eateries to suit all tastes, plus a great beach and facilities at Olu. Certainly can fully recommend for a great holiday.

WOW! Stunning views, idyllic and luxurious. With 2 children the villa provides all a family could want. The villa overlooks the pool so great for families to enable all to do their own thing, yet safe viewing of smaller members.
Kitchen facilites enable healthy (a juicer!)easy meals to be made. Washing machine...pack light wash in eve, dry by am...a real luxury.
Views from terrace make this villa exceptional, even my 12 year old was amazed by the sunset here!!
Varied evening entertainment in Fetyiere and Hisararnou, Kayakoia worth an early evening visit followed by Turkish meal. Olu Deniz, breathtaking.
Will be reccomending to friends and family and have already booked for August with a friend and her daughters.
