We feel that the local transport is more than adequate to get around the area and have not had to hire a car, though some guests choose to do this to explore the area more thoroughly. ( there is parking at the Villa ) The local dolmus are easily accessible and are cheap to use and run all day until 01.00hrs. We have negotiated preferential terms for guests at the Villa with a taxi service who will pick up from the Villa within 10 minutes of your call with fixed prices to the usual destinations agreed. Taxi fares usually double after midnight and again this is waived for our guests. For 5 or 6 passengers it is actually cheaper to use the taxi service rather than the dolmus bus service.
It is also possible to effectively have use of a taxi & driver all day for tourist trips etc. Depending on the distances involved this can be from around £40 per day. Full details of all trips, recommended restaurants and previous guest feedback and ideas are held at the Villa for your assistance.
There is no need for for any injections or vaccinations to visit this area of Turkey. In the event of any medical emergency there is 24 hour medical assistance in Hisaronu and modern private hospital facilities in Fethiye for peace of mind.
