El Camino Hostel & Pub – Welcome To Fethiye

For as long as we've known it, Fethiye's Karagözler has always managed to play host to a happy mix of local dwellings (lots of them are very swanky local dwellings, too, we might add), small hotels of the more luxurious variety, mid-priced hotels and backpacker hostels where travellers happily share … [Read more...]

Iskele Restaurant, Fethiye: Kebabs From The Ocakbaşı And More Food, Too

***Update 2019 - Iskele closed in 2018 and a fire burnt the restaurant down in September 2019*** Yesterday started off as me supposedly preparing Rodos Kabağı for lunch and then we would walk into Fethiye because everywhere is just so bright and sunny and clear at the moment (the floods in … [Read more...]

Fethiye Hotels: The All New Hotel Unique – An Urban Hideaway

Throughout the winter of 2013/14, we watched a hotel being built in an impossibly small space, in a cliff face, right in the middle of Fethiye. During that time, our opinions went from the 'What the...?' end of the spectrum to the 'Well, just wow,' end of the spectrum. Hotel Unique, Fethiye is an … [Read more...]

What’s Going On In Fethiye This Month? Let’s See…

Something a bit different for 2014 for the blog. There are lots of goings on in Fethiye - and in our life - that either never make it into a post or we have to squash them in somewhere at the expense of another post. So we've decided, once a month...or so...(in our usual haphazard way) we'll put a … [Read more...]

We've got lots to tell you about before this year is out...but first, let's do a final Fethiye Telmessos Theatre … [Read more...]

Fethiye: Well Helloooo Autumn, What Took You So Long? Hoş Geldin!

Favourite time of year in Fethiye; autumn. Usually, at some point through September we'll have some sort of downpour that clears the air and, even though it's still hot weather, there's a refreshing breeze and the air is clear. The downpour never came. Every day, the weather forecast displayed highs … [Read more...]

Ancient Telmessos Theatre In Fethiye – A Little Progress Update

If you read this blog often, you'll know that we've been keenly following the restoration of Fethiye's ancient Telmessos Theatre. Last September marked the beginning of those restorations so, as we're just a few days short of one year on, we thought we'd do a 12 month update. Because this is … [Read more...]

Yacht Classic Hotel, Fethiye – A Cut Above

Regular readers will know that for the last couple of summers, we've spent quite a bit of time at the Yacht Classic Hotel along the Karagözler in Fethiye. Towards the end of summer 2012, stories started to be heard that the land next to the hotel would be used to extend the grounds and a new pool … [Read more...]

Fethiye’s Ancient Telmessos Theatre – Recreating The Past

Back in September, we were excited to report that the restoration of Telmessos Theatre had started. Since then, we've done a couple of updates and, last time we posted about scaling the perimeter walls of Fethiye's Telmessos Theatre, we said we'd leave it a while before we did another update. The … [Read more...]

Fethiye Marina In Photos – Capturing Reflection

It struck recently that, so far, in the year 2013, our posts about Fethiye have been about all the construction that's going on. We've posted about the continuing work along the harbour between Fethiye and Çalış and, in our last post, we also got curious about building work being carried out at … [Read more...]
