Kayaköy in Springtime: A Few Photos

When is the best time to visit the village of Kayaköy? Well if you're hiking from Kayaköy to Ölüdeniz or walking to Af Kule, then for us, the absolute best time to be in the area is on a crispy, sunny, winter's day. All the better for photographs of the stop-you-in-your-tracks views. But how … [Read more...]

Winter Sunset: Çalış Beach

This is Çalış Beach, near Fethiye in Southwest Turkey and there is one fabulous reason to visit: it has a huge claim to fame. Çalış Beach plays host some of the most beautiful sunsets you will see anywhere in the world. Çalış gets a bit of bad press from some of the more well known guidebooks to … [Read more...]

Fethiye Springtime Blooms: Photo Story

We weren't going to do a post today but I've collected a few photos over the last week so I thought it would be nice to share some Fethiye springtime blooms and add a splash of colour to a dull Fethiye day. This is the blossom of the wild and these two photographs were taken while we were … [Read more...]

Exploring Fethiye – Koca Çalış

If you're familiar with the Fethiye region, you'll no doubt have heard of Fethiye, Çalış Beach, Ovacık, Hisarönü and Ölüdeniz. However, there is one area that we have (until now) neglected to mention. That's because, for some reason or other, we haven't walked down to that area in a long … [Read more...]

Fethiye Festive Season – Photo Story

I love this photo and as we've just woken up to the second day of Advent and the UK and much of northern Europe is covered in snow, I've taken the opportunity to use it. I'm hoping it will help us to feel more wintery and festive in a still very mild Fethiye. I took the photo when we were part of … [Read more...]

Fethiye Ottoman Water Cisterns – A Photo

We found out an interesting piece of history about the Muğla region (Muğla is the area of Turkey stretching from the Bodrum peninsula in the far Southwest to just east of Fethiye) today. We can't speak for other towns and villages of Muğla but if you know Fethiye, you'll have probably seen these … [Read more...]

Aksazlar Koyu – Fethiye Photo & An Update

This photo was taken at Aksazlar Koyu a couple of weeks ago and it just sums up the Fethiye weather over the last three weeks, really. Beautiful, clear, sunny mornings and then a heavy, humid cloud engulfs us after lunch. We even had rain yesterday. All very odd for June but things might be looking … [Read more...]

Summer’s Coming to Fethiye…But Are The Flights?

Wow, a hot one today. Even the arms are out. A few days ago, we wrote about the tell tale signs of the summer season starting in the Fethiye area. Well, as the Fethiye weather was so beautiful today, we decided to go for a walk along Çalış Beach to Güven's Bar and the signs are now there for all to … [Read more...]

Travel Time – A Birthday Trip

A lovely Fethiye birthday in Deep Blue Bar last night and now looking forward to my Istanbul birthday tomorrow. Anyone would think we don't get out much with the way I'm going on about our little jaunt to Istanbul. We haven't actually been anywhere overnight since we went back to England last … [Read more...]
