We have tried to cater for all extras that we as a family would like to avoid having to take with us in a suitcase.

Transport to and from Dalaman airport can be arranged for you if required at competitive prices .
We feel that the local transport is more than adequate to get around the area 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, from the mobile phone provided, 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.
Car hire can be arranged for you - either for collection at the airport or delivered to the Villa. A SatNav is available to those who wish to rent a car.
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 facilites in Fethiye for peace of mind.
The property is overseen by a local english lady who lives 2 minutes walk away and is on hand to sort out any problems or queries that may arise,
