Villa Camellia is ideal for 2 couples or a family with 3 children. Two large, en-suite bedrooms with air-conditioning. One of 4 villas on a sought-after, private complex in a rural setting with stunning gardens and a large pool. Combines the tranquillity of mountain views with easy access to beaches, restaurants and activities. Villa Camellia is located in the historic Kaya valley, which is between the harbour town of Fethiye and the famous beach resort of Olu Deniz on the south west Mediterranean coast of Turkey. Holidays here are for those people who want to get away from the hustle and bustle of busy holiday resorts! This little spot of paradise is to be found nestling between fields and mountains but is only a short walk from the village restaurants and a 10 or 15 minute taxi ride from all the shops, bars, beaches and boat trips. The Kaya valley is famous in Turkey being a protected area of outstanding natural beauty, and with its deserted and picturesque Greek village.
Bridget and Tim Levingston were both IT professionals, then were lucky enough to puchase this unique location way back in 1998. We built this small private complex of 4 detached villas and spent many happy months landscaping the gardens and fitting out the villas to the highest standard.
We lived in the largest villa, Kaya Vadi House, for nearly 8 years, then returned to Berkshire in 2006.
In 2013 we were delighted to sell the properties to our lovely manager, Gem. He is paying for them over the 4 year period to the end of 2016. Tim continues to run the marketing, holiday bookings and administration and the rest of his time is working on his golf handicap!
We visit the villas 2 or 3 times a year - it is always like returning home (except much better weather!).
Tim Levingston purchased this villa in 1998
We travelled extensively in Turkey looking to buy villas, but couldn't find anything we liked in a location we liked. Our favourite place was the Kaya valley, but unfortunately foreigners are not allowed to own property there. So, we set up a Turkish company and bought land in the perfect spot, then built our 4 lovely detached villas the way we wanted them.
They told our unusual story in the "Place in the Sun" book which accompanied the Channel 4 TV series.
They say "location; location; location". Our villas are almost unique in Turkey - quiet, peaceful location surrounded by small farms, but only 10 minutes away from the beaches, towns and all the attractions.
