I’ve just returned from spending a week at this Villa and it was possibly the most relaxed week of my life since having Children (and they came with me!)!
I don’t really know where to start… The villa has spectacular views of the mountains that surround it, the sunsets are to die for! You can view the sunset from the back of the villa but we tended to all gravitate to either the shaded seated area in the garden or from the veranda. We tended not to walk into the village until the sun had set, not just because it was cooler but because we did not want to miss the sunset.
The owners have thought of everything, it is evident that they spend a lot of time holidaying in the villa and as such, it’s well thought out, spacious, well equipped and safe for children. The pictures don’t do it justice, it’s far bigger than the photos make it look. I had loads of questions about the villa and the village and the owners answered all of them before we went, they are so helpful and even if you have a question whilst you are there, they would be happy to help. They have also arranged for a gentlemen called Metin to be on hand if you need any help whilst you are there. Metin is fantastic! Nothing is a problem for him and being local he can arrange most things for you, if needed.
I have a two year old and a three year old, so I obviously had concerns for their safety. Not here. The owners have installed baby gates at the top and bottom of the stairs (These are removed when parties without children are staying) and then the veranda is completely fenced off with a gate leading down to the garden and then the pool is completely gated so the kids can play in the garden without being at risk of going near the pool. This was ideal for myself and my family as I didn’t feel like I had to keep my eyes on them constantly.
The pool is maintained to a high standard, with the pool man coming every other day, you will only notice that he has been because the pool is slightly fuller – he must come very early in the morning. The garden is well maintained and the shaded seated area was a godsend. When my kids weren’t in the pool, they spent several hours each day sitting on the bean bags in the shade; colouring, stickering and watching films/cartoons on the iPad. The Wi-Fi is excellent and I was easily able to stream films in the shaded area even though the modem was inside. There was 8 of us staying at the villa and even with us all using Wi-Fi at the same time, it was never slow.
This was our 6th visit to Uzumlu in the last 6 years, but our first stay at this villa. We are a family of 5, and Beyaz Ev suited us perfectly. It was very clean, well equipped and very spacious. The bedrooms all had air-conditioning units which is certainly needed during the summer months. We spent many hours in and around the immaculate pool, and the covered terrace is ideal for escaping the midday sun, and for evenings sat out enjoying a glass of wine whilst watching the sunsets (and the hubbie cooking the bbq!). The villa is about a 15 minute walk in to the beautiful and traditional village of Uzumlu, where you will find plenty of small shops stocking your everyday items, and a selection of very friendly restaurants serving good food. I would certainly recommend this villa, and hope to return ourselves too.
This is a lovely spacious, well-equipped villa in a peaceful village but within easy reach of the beaches and nightlife around Fethiye - we've stayed in plenty of villas over the years and I would thoroughly recommend Beyaz Ev.
What made our stay really special for us was Alex and Matt who are such genuine people and go to such lengths to help, both before and during our stay. They seem to share the Turkish spirit of hospitality which is the thing we love most about the country and this gave our visit a really personal touch. They know the area incredibly well and when they say people in a restaurant or on a boat are their friends, they really mean it (some have even been to stay with them in England) so do take them up on any of their recommendations.
The villa itself is very big and airy, with a well-equipped kitchen and a huge veranda with fantastic views over the vally to the hills beyond. There's a good pool which is not overllooked, with plenty of space around it. It's also much cooler in Uzumlu than down on the coast which made the nights much more bearable. There wasn't a mosquito in sight which meant we could sleep with the windows open and be woken by the clinking of bells as the goats were taken up to the pastures in the morning past the back of the house.
Uzumlu itself has a proper square and enough bars and restaurants to provide some variety if you decide to eat there but you shouldn't miss buying fish in the Fish Market in Fethiye and taking it to the fruit and veg market next door and having it cooked there, away from the fishy smells.
The ruins at Cadiana (or Kadyanda) are a revelation. You drive up for about 20 mins up a pretty rough road but as you are among the pine forest it is lovely and cool up there and completely devoid of tourists (or it was at 10am-12 noon). You climb up a steep winding path and then come upon the most amazing amphitheatre, forum etc hidden amongst the trees, with astonishing views all the way to Fethiye. Even if you're not into historic ruins, we would recommend this.
I don't normally write reviews after I've been on holiday but I always look at them and thought I'd make an exception as we had such a lovely time. Hope you like your stay as much as we did!
Beyaz Ev is a beautiful villa in the friendly town of Uzumlu. It is a lovely spacious villa that easily catered for our extended family holiday. We spent many happy hours in the swimming pool and made use of the facilities including the villa's bbq. It is well furnished with modern furniture and the kitchen was very well equipped, a real home from home.
Uzumlu is a small village where you can sample a taste of Turkish life. It has a well stocked convenience store, a nice wine house and a small selection of good restaurants. Everybody was very friendly and helpful.
Only 15 minutes away (by car) is the seaside harbour town of Fethiye which is one of our favourite Turkish resorts. You can also easily visit Olu Deniz which has great beaches and sports facilities. There are many great places to visit in this area of Turkey!
We would certainly recommend a hire car and the owners arranged a spacious car at a reasonable price. We were also picked up and returned to the airport and the hire company were again friendly and reliable (they even took us to a shop on the way to the villa to buy some essentials).
But our lasting memory will be enjoying the pool and enjoying Beyaz Ev's stunning views particularly in the early evenings while sitting on the large terrace watching the sunset over the mountains.
Excellent villa with beautiful private pool area. Located within a 10 min walk from the traditional village of Uzumlu. The villa has 3 good sized bedrooms and is ideal for a family holiday. A fantastic, peaceful location yet only a 15 min drive to the coast
Beyaz Ev is a lovely villa. We really enjoyed the peace and quiet, the mountain views, the great pool and sitting on the terrace. The villa itself was very spacious and comfortable. The owners were extremely helpful and we had everything we needed.
The village of Uzumlu has a lot of character and remains unspoilt. There are several good restaurants and shops for fresh bread and basic provisions. We also found the locals to be extremely friendly.
There is something for everyone here as there are lots of places to see and things to do. We managed to please a thrill-seeking teenage son with quad-biking, white water rafting and scuba diving and a sun-seeking daughter with beautiful beaches such as the famous Olu Deniz. There was also plenty of sight-seeing and ruins for us to enjoy. One of the highlights of our holiday was Saklikent Gorge where you can sit in a cafe by the river's edge and dangle your feet in the turquoise water - or race down the river on a doughnut!
We recommend a car to get the most out of your holiday, although there are frequent dolmus (mini-bus) from Uzumlu to Fethiye. You can get dolmus from Fethiye to lots of places and there are plenty of day trips and boat trips.
We all agreed it was one of our best holidays and look forward to returning.
