About the property

Villa in Kayakoy, Nr Fethiye, Turkey - Peaceful, Historical, 10 mins Drive from Beach and Town

Tas Evi is a self catering, large, luxury stone villa with a magnificent location perched on a hillside with fantastic views of the ‘Ghost Town’ of Kaya Köy and across the valley floor with rolling hills which frame the beautiful sunsets. The house has enormous character as is made up of 2 renovated traditional stone houses which are now historically protected along with the other deserted stone houses in the old Greek village in the valley. It is backed by forestry land and guests may be woken to the gentle sound of goat bells. The hamlet of Keçiler Köyü is 10 minutes drive from the harbour town of Fethiye which was the main port for the Lycian coast and 15 minutes from Olüdeniz beach on the famous turquoise coast. There are also numerous places of historical interest within easy distance. Also many local walks and activities for those who want more than relaxing by pool.

About John Helliwell

We are John and Louise and we have owned Tas Evi for over 10 years. Every winter we carefully make improvements to the house be they renovations, equipment renewals or general home improvements to make sure your stay at the villa is as pleasant and comfortable as possible. We are both sailors and for many years, we left the villa for our sailing boat where we carried out charter holidays on the amazing Turquoise coast of Turkey.

John Helliwell purchased this villa in 2004

Why John Helliwell chose Fethiye

It's just one of the most tranquil valleys. Still in rural rustic and traditional Turkey with modern towns and resorts just over the hills.

What makes this villa unique


Guestbook comments from the owner

'This has been a brilliant week, we've been to this area several times before and each time, it just gets better. Tas Evi is by far the best villa we have stayed in, the villa facilities are 5 star and we will definitely come back.'

'We've had a lovely time. The villa is fantastic. Very well equipped. The pool area is excellent and during our fortnight we managed to go on a number of wonderful walks, drives and excursions. So much to do in this area, we'll have to come back. First time in Turkey, but not the last!'

'This two weeks has been great, especially at Tas Evi. The house has been kept in such good condition, the kitchen has everything and the view is fantastic. It was our first time in Turkey and it must have been the best holiday of all. We really enjoyed our stay - it was wonderful.'
