Ayyildiz Apollon & Melek are set in a lovely large garden of flowers and trees in a quiet residential location in Fethiye, with an easy walk to all facilities, or frequent minibuses; no need to drive. Situated in a newly built traditional style villa, not on a holiday complex, comfortably furnished with Turkish fabrics and rugs throughout. Within the garden are shaded seating areas, a large swimming and children's splash pools.Plenty of beaches to choose from, sandy or pebbly, in the surrounding area. The apartments are suitable for people who want a personal and traditional Turkish experience. The owners and representative are English&Turkish, with extensive experience in Turkey, so language with local knowledge is at hand. They are just 5-7 minutes walk from the sea, located between Calis and Fethiye Town centre, approximately 20-30 minutes walk/5 min bus from both, with weekly local markets selling fresh fruit and vegetables, spices, cheeses, yoghurts, textiles, jewellery etc.
After many years exploring and enjoying the Mediterranean regions of both Greece and Turkey, in 2003 I purchased the first Ayyildiz and began making a special holiday home. As a yoga practitioner, I like to practise regularly and keep equipment at Ayyildiz for my own and my guests' use.
Susan purchased this apartment in 2010
I chose the lovely Akarca area of Fethiye, with mountain views and level walks for its accessibility. Fethiye is convenient for the airport, and also for exploring further into Turkey. Begonia apartments have easy access to both beach and town, by walking, bus or car, whilst being in a quiet residential neighbourhood. I really enjoy the 'taste of Turkey' which I experience here; the people, the food, the music. Being 'off the beaten track' its possible to just relax in the garden or by the pool and forget one's workaday life. However when I want it, there's a lively town in one direction with many delightful restaurants, bars, cafes, clubs, shops, a cultural centre, harbour, tours and more. In the other direction is the beach resort Calis and nearby, traditional village life of Gunlukbasi.
When wondering where to locate, I looked at Central Fethiye and also Calis. I really enjoy being able to walk, but not hike, to most places I like to go. While central Fethiye is great, being in the midst of the lively town, there's no beach. Calis has a super beach with wonderful afternoon breezes and fabulous sunsets, but no 'town'; mainly tourist shops and restaurants. Then I found Akarca, between the two, and an easy walk to both. If I tire of walking, there's a dolmus every few minutes to take me in or back, from early morning til late at night. I also love having views and that usually means being in an upper floor apartment but all apts have super views, from the living rooms and bedrooms, including from the ground floor. I love knowing everything is nearby whilst I can feel 'away'!

"We enjoyed our stay very much, perfect for a family, great to have locked screen doors and a lockable railing on the back balcony to ensure that the kids were safe, the pool was a great size for really having a proper swim. location great for walkability, access to the dolmuses, and so many great local eateries close by. The mountains looming in the distance were a lovely sight every morning as we ate breakfast. Thanks!" E. Klein Boston May 11

Susan was very helpful with information before we left. The apartment was lovely, plenty of room, peaceful and well situated. The pool was fantastic and had it mostly to ourselves which we weren't expecting for the time of year. The buses to Calis and Fethiye were easy to get to. No need for a car. The location is great and we highly recommend it. We can't wait to go back one day soon.
