Autumn News From Fethiye – From Hectic To A Slower Pace

Yes, ‘hectic,’ is definitely the right word. If you were waiting for our October monthly news roundup, you’ll know it was non-existent. That was the hectic part.

September In Fethiye – Summer Becomes Autumn

Babadağ Kafeterya – Perfect Snack Food Simplicity

Eating; most definitely one of our favourite pastimes. We cook Turkish recipes at home and we also love to eat out, too. Yeah, we love us a posh treat every now and then: a seafood feast at Girida, perhaps, or a steak at Çarıklı Et. But Fethiye is also blessed with oodles of places from […]

Fethiye Living – Early Summer News Update

Welcome to this month’s random news from daily life in Fethiye. All those little goings on that don’t merit their own blog post.

Help Beach & Yacht Club, Fethiye – Love It!

What a great day we had! We need to tell you that there’s yet another new addition to the Fethiye beach scene and, as with all newcomers, we were excited and just had to go and check it out. But we had to bide our time. Mixed weather since their opening day didn’t really make for […]
