Villa with Private Pool and Panoramic Mountain Views



Updated: 02-Aug-2016
Villa in Kadikoy, Saklikent, Turkey - Peaceful Location nr Sakilkent Gorge and Tlos Ruins

Villa Carreta takes its name from the Turkish word for the turtles which swim in the stream below our garden. Our large luxury villa is set in 500m of terraced forest land and has a private pool 10m x 5m. The panoramic views from the garden and large terrace, across the valley floor onto the mountains and the ancient Lycian ruins at Tlos, are simply stunning. This is a wonderful setting for a relaxing holiday to recharge the batteries and top up the tan. Alternatively Villa Carreta is an excellent base for a far more active holiday with key attractions such as Taurus Mountains, Saklikent Gorge and Patara Beach, all being within easy striking distance.

Guestbook comments from the owner

‘What a great holiday and a fantastic (and very tasteful) villa! We visited Saklikent Gorge and the boys loved the rafting and walking up the gorge. Patara Beach was also a great hit with the waves. Apart from that we were just happy to stay at the villa and potter around. Next time I would definitely like to come back for longer than a week –there was lots that we didn’t get time to do’ - Jack, Jo, Alex and Olly Wells

‘Villa Carreta gave us the most relaxing holiday we have ever had. The villa itself is huge with 3 separate sitting areas inside so there was plenty of space for our extended family to all chill out. The big garden had many different areas to ‘hide’ from the kids with my book! However my favourite spot was the wonderful pool where I spent hours gazing at the incredible views and watching the goat herders!'

'What a special family holiday we had in Villa Caretta! The villa and garden are quite stunning - well-equipped, tastefully furnished and beautifully landscaped. We loved eating at the local rural Turkish restaurants where we were welcomed like long-lost family! The villa manager was so friendly and helpful and bent over backwards to organise trips out for us and even came and cooked us a delicious traditional Turkish dinner. We are definitely planning a repeat visit next year.' Mark and Sarah Baker

Nearest Airport : Dalaman at 45 Kilometres Nearest Ferry : Fethiye at 45 Kilometres Nearest Restaurant : Numerous at 5 Kilometres Nearest Beach : Patarra at 45 Kilometres Car: necessary


Patara beach (45 min) This was the port of Xanthus and is now an important archaeological site and protected area. Patara beach is a white sand beach with dunes and has been recently voted the best beach in the world by 'The Sunday Times'. Our kids (and us) adore this beach. The waves are great fun for jumping over and you can even body-surf here. It is a huge expanse of sand, surrounded by mountains with one lovely beach bar.


Dalaman airport is 70 mins drive away. Car hire is recommended.


Kalkan 10 mins further on from Patara. This gorgeous seaside town has a beautiful bay and a wonderful old centre with winding cobbled streets and many fascinating shops selling carpets, jewellery, tiles etc. This is a perfect place to stock up on presents. Fethiye (40 mins away). This is a busy fishing town with a wonderful fish market, Turkish baths, traditional rug and kilm shops, marina with boat trips out to the islands in the bay.

Further Details:

Authentic Turkish village life can be experienced firsthand in Kadikoy village just 2 mins drive away. There, supplies can be purchased in the local shops or even delivered to your villa. At the traditional Turkish roadside locantas, you can watch the locals as they prepare your food - trout, BBQ meat or the wonderful vegetarian Turkish meze starters.

Salkikent Gorge - This is the second largest gorge in Europe and only 10 mins drive from our villa. There are many walking trails here of various difficulties. Alternatively you can sit in one of the traditional Turkish lounges which are suspended 0.5m above the ice-cold running waters and shaded by fig trees while eating the freshly caught trout which they serve. For the more adventurous, there is white water rafting and mud baths! A great treat for the kids is staying in one of the tree houses which you can hire for the night (£10 per person per night for dinner, bed and breakfast at current rates).

Tlos (15 mins away). This is probably the oldest city in Lycia There are the ruins of a Byzantinefortress, numerous rock-strewn tombs, a Roman stadium, amphitheatre and baths and can be seen from our garden! Just past Tlos and just 15 mins away from Villa Carreta, The Yakapark Trout Farm is a superb place to spend a hot afternoon. The many running streams that run through it under the trees, provide natural air conditioning and keep the area cool, no matter how hot the weather is. Our local Mountain Lodge bar is a 10 min drive away and does lovely food in a wonderful setting with a pool and play area for the kids.
