Apartment in Ovacik, near Hisaronu / Oludeniz / Fethiye, Turkey - 15 Mins Walk to Hisaronu Centre
Dolphin apartment offers a perfect spot to spend a relaxing family holiday close to the scenic Oludeniz / Hisaranu area. Set in the heart of rural Ovacik with breathtaking views of pine clad mountains and valleys. The tranquil setting is ideal for lazing by the pool by day and watching the sun set at night from our poolside bar. What we offer is peace and quiet (apart from the school holidays) and the chance to "chill" out. The Dolphin apartment is one of 10 apartments which is set in an attractive garden with one of the largest and cleanest swimming pool's in the area. There is also a "kiddies" pool and poolside bar serving snacks and refreshments all day and into the night. The bar offers the chance for a quiet evening drink. Sorry no wild nights here! (Well maybe one or two) The peaceful Oludeniz area is only 4 km away. Famous for its spectacular blue lagoon and beach area, and surrounding landscapes of mountain and pine forests. (google if you get chance). 10km away is Fethiye.

Guestbook comments from the owner
I want to contact you to say we had a wonderful two weeks staying at he dolphin apartments and are really sorry to back to UK. The apartment and grounds were the best i have encountered. Our balcony overlooked the wonderful pool. The children loved every minute of their stay. Thank you once again and hope to see you in the future.
Can't fault our stay at Dolphin Apartments! Our apartment was clean, regularly had our towels changed and had everything that we needed for a week in Ovacik, the rooms were a great size and bathroom facilities were good. About a 15 minute walk to Hisaronu town which is were you'll find plenty of bars and restaurants, however there are lots in Ovacik a couple of minutes away from the apartments but they're not bustling nightlife, depends what you're looking for. We got the dolmus bus to Fetiye town one day to the local fish market which was very simple and only a couple of lira each way.
From the Owner
“The apartments are located in a quiet area with fantastic views of Babadag mountain range and Ovacik Valley. It has some spectacular sunsets. It offers peace and quiet, yet it is close enough to Hisaranu to enjoy the local "night Life" and its easy access to the beach/Lagoon. The pool is very large in comparison to other site pools, it is well maintained and is always clean (especially important where children are concerned) and there are well kept gardens around the site. The staff at the Dolphin Apartments are very accommodating, and again it allows for a quiet drink on an evening at the bar with an odd game of pool.”
