For the more active holidaymaker there are plenty of canoes and paddle boats available to explore the beautiful Lagoon.
A fantastic Barbecue and weekly live show is held at Nicholas Beach - Again transport to and from the beach will be provided (bookings will need to be confirmed) leaving you to have an enjoyable evening. This is well worth a visit and the food is delicious!
Recommendations: Ovacik is an ideal location to simply unwind and soak up the sunshine, or is a great holiday base to explore the surrounding areas.
Your stay at Oryanda villa must include a trip to Fethiye. The town holds a market every Tuesday, where you will find many local stallholders selling an abundance of spices, fruit , veg and other goodies - well worth a sample!
Fethiye fish market comes to life during the evening. Here you can select and purchase freshly caught fish and for 5TYL each you are able to take it to one of the many restaurants in the open air court yard and have it cooked, served with masses of salad, rice and fries etc. There is a lovely atmosphere about this place and the food is delicious. Today, Fethiye is a prime example of a modern marina and harbour offering daily boat trips as well as a hydrofoil over to Rhodes. A selection of shops and an indoor bazaar are located nearby.
Excursions (can be prebooked): Dalyan:
A fun place to visit - Dalyan is famous for its mud baths, which not only cleanse the skin but are said to remedy rheumatism and have anti-ageing properties. Included in this trip is a visit to the Lycian cliff tombs and the ancient city of Caunos as well as time to unwind on the nearby beach famous as a nesting area for the loggerhead turtles.
Lycian Coast Boat Trips:
Leaving from either Olu Deniz or Fethiye - a relaxing day of sun, sea and fun exploring the beautiful coastline and nearby islands. This trip is not to be missed!
Known locally as Ghost Village, Kayakoy is a Greek deserted settlement situated about 4km away from Hisarinou. Kayakoy is easily reached by dolmus bus or taxi.
ACCESSIBILITY - This property is not recommended to the elderly or people with mobility difficulties as the property is situated on an incline and there are steps throughout the property to the various levels. It is not suitable for those requiring wheelchair access.
The villa is beautifully clean and well maintained. There were 9 of us in our holiday party, 4 adults and 5 children and I have to say the villa was ideal for ALL of us. It was great to relax by the pool while the children entertained themselves in the pool. Because the villa is on the hillside there always seemed to be a cooling breeze on the balcony.
The main high street is just a short walk down the hill and you will be spoilt for choice for restaurants. After you have eaten and had a few drinks you may not fancy the walk back up the hill but taxis are readily available and very cheap.
If you fancy staying in of an evening there are plenty of restaurants around that will deliver to the villa.
Oludeniz is a short bus ride away with its fantastic beach and promenade. Here there are lots more bars and restaurants to choose from. Buzz Beach Bar is a favourite but you may need to book first. It will only cost about £5 for a taxi back if you don't fancy the bus which are usually pretty full.
The water park is not far away and is well worth a visit and there is plenty of shelter if the sun gets too much for you!
On extra little bonus we thought was a good idea, right outside the villa there is a button that will call a taxi for you!
All in all Oryanda is a fantastic villa in a fantastic location, we are already planning our next visit,
I have just returned from a week at the villa with my mother, brother and sister-in-law, along with their two young children. The villa is just as good as it looks in the pictures and the mountainside setting is just beautiful. The villa is very spacious and clean, and was so good in fact that we hardly left there! We were more than happy relaxing by the pool and picking up supplies for lunch from the local Azda, about 10 mins walk away.
It is also a 10/15min walk into the main strip of Hisaronu, with many restaurants and bars. It was still fairly quiet at this time of year and the weather was perfect in the late twenties. You also get a lovely breeze at the villa, due to the mountainside location.
The only place we ventured to was Olu Deniz to go to the Blue Lagoon. This is also a beautiful spot and very good for kids due to the shallow warm water. It costs about £2 to enter as its a National Park and the taxi there was about £7, only 15mins away. We wished we'd gone there again. There are also lovely restaurants along the seafront there and a few shops.
I am determined to go back here as there are so many trips to do - jeep safari, paragliding, watersports, Pamukalle etc. Definitely not a place to get bored!
The villa is very child friendly with stairgates, cot, highchair etc. and the owners were so helpful with booking arrangements and transfers.
My niece was quite happily waving to the pool guy every afternoon, who was very friendly.
Lots of other useful information I gleened from the other excellent reviews so keep reading......
On arrival at Dalaman Airport we were greeted by a driver from NG property maintenance, who stopped at a shop to get us bottles of water. We then headed onto the villa which turned out to be absolutley perfect! It is just as described, very clean and tidy with well maintained gardens and pool.
The location is perfect and not too far from anything - about a 15 minute walk into Hisaranu, where there is lots of lovely restaurants and bars! Would highly recomend Mamma Mia and The Lemon Tree. Also over from the villa is a small hotel called Malibu Aparthotel where you can get lovely bar snacks and they let you use the pool - very friendly.
Catherine and Diane who own the villa could not be more helpful.
We will definately be going back to the villa and would absolutley recommend this to anyone!!!! x
Upon arrival we were collected by the New Generation Property company, who provide direct transfers from Dalaman Airport to the Villa, they also manage the property. An efficient journey, but upon arrival we spent 20mins trying to identify which villa the property was - no major issue, it was dark. There are 6 villas in a nice area at the top of a hillside location, the bonus is you get a nice breeze as a result. Lower to sea level it’s a lot warmer - Olu Deniz beach and Fethiye. There are some amazing views here; bizarrely if you do a paraglide you'll pass the villa en route to the top of the local mountain (2000m high).
Like other reviews have mentioned there are some local restaurants, a bar (The Meeting Point Cafe) and two small supermarkets.
Ovacik is a 10min walk, a small number of restaurants, bars, etc. are located here. There is a butcher for using the resident BBQ and an Azda (Large supermarket) for everything else. Hisaronu is a 15/20mins walk, this a lively area with approx. 150 bars and restaurants. Nice area though, not too 'low market English'. Olu Deniz beach can be reached via a Bus/Taxi from Ovacik, so a 10min walk and a further 10/15min drive. In essence the villa is in an excellent location.
The property is very clean, well-maintained, inside and out, overall we were very happy with the decoration and spacing. Everything was very clean and organised. Some useful instructions were provided before arrival. Useful homely items included in the property which you'd expect to have to buy. The property was built in 2006 so it has a modern feel, well laid out and overall very spacious. The kitchen was perfectly stocked with plates, cups and eating utensils. The master bedroom is excellent with a large en suite and door which open onto the balcony, useful storage and a safe. There is a washing machine in the villa. The golden gem of the property is the pool and garden area. Immaculately maintained and provide a relaxing and private environment. The well landscaped garden and large pool terrace area make for a perfect holiday environment.
The owner provided good customer service overall.
Would we go back and stay here? Would we recommend the villa to a friend? Without hesitation!
We had never been to Turkey before and went with friends. It was a brilliant holiday and we will be definitely going again.
The villa was clean, modern with air-con, great villa for families and friends, the location is about a 10 minute walk from the town and the views are breathtaking. It was wonderful, we really enjoyed the peaceful relaxing atmosphere around the pool away from the hustle & bustle.
Hisaronu is a great town, it has so many restaurants, you are spoilt for choice. It is great for shopping, bars & nightlife something for the young & the old.
We went on several trips – a boat trip that takes you around 9 uninhabited islands in the Med, there are stop offs where the kids got the chance to jump off driving boards & slides from the boat, totally exhausting but a great day out for the family. Also a Jeep Safari through the mountains & finishing at natural mud baths it’s different but a fun experience. It looks like large dirty pool and you just cover yourselves in mud like hippos.
On our last evening we went to the Turkish Baths in Hisaronu, it was wonderful. After a sauna and wash down, your skin is exfoliated and then massaged with foam. It's the most relaxed I've ever felt.
If you don’t feel like going out you can stock up at the supermarket with local produce for the BBQ with a few bottles of vino & chill out on the terrace.
A fabulous holiday with a great villa in a perfect location. My husband was not entirely looking forward to visiting Turkey but he has been converted.
The villa is perfect, particularly for us in terms of location. Approximately a 10 minute walk into Hisoranou for full on nightlife and entertainment but with a private pool we hardly needed to venutre out. When we did, the local bus (dolmus) took us 10 minutes in one direction ot Olu Deniz or 10 minutes in the other direction to the beautiful marina at Fetyihe (go to the Old Turkish bath there - great fun).
On arrival at Dalaman, we were met by the driver and taken in a very comfortable Mercedes taxi to the villa, all within an hour of landing in Turkey.
The villa is well equipped, very comfortable and clean. We cooked on the outside bbq a couple of times as well as having a pizza delivered! Gardens and pool are well maintained and its a peaceful place to enjoy a week or two in the sun.
We hired a car for a couple of days through the agents in Turkey and went to Skaklient Gorge (get there early before the coach trips decent about 11am!) finished off with a fab fresh trout lunch over the river. Another 'must' is the deserted village of Kaya where you'll also find some great local restaurants, the best one being Cin Bal. Miss it, miss out.
I would recommend this villa for couples, families and girly holidays. Cocktails by the pool watching the sun go down over the mountains, anyone?
Set amidst beautiful countryside and boasting amazing scenic views, Oryanda villa is located in the peaceful village of Ovacik. It is nestled on a plateau at the foot of Mount Babadag and enjoys superb views of the surrounding pine clad mountainside offering a tranquil location for that perfect villa holiday. Whilst you can enjoy a peaceful drink and dinner in Ovacik itself, only a short walk away is the buzzing resort centre of Hisarinou, where an abundance of bars, restaurants and shops can be found. The area caters for all age groups and tastes in both dining and music... you can rest assured that you will always receive a warm welcome! Alternatively, a short dolmus or taxi ride away is the famous Oludeniz beach and the Blue Lagoon where, not only can you enjoy a superb meal and relaxing drink in one of the many bars and restaurants, but you can indulge in one of many activities such as paragliding or scuba diving.
Other Activities: Paragliding
