Hotel Recommendations??

Post by BarbaraJK » Thu Jan 18, 2007 1:15 am

Does anyone know of a quaint small inn near Fethiye
for a few days in March. A lot of hotels are closed for
the winter. I have heard of Hotel Bella in Selcuk ad
Su Hotel in Bodrum, are there any other special ones??

Looking forward to hearing from you.

Hi Barbara,

Most certainly the one that comes to my mind is the Villa Rhapsody located in the lovely area of Kaya Koyu. It is about 20 mins outside of Fethiye. İt is centrally located with easy aces to either Olu Deniz or Fethiye. Plus Jeanne ( who is a member of this forum ) is very helpful to answer all your questions about things to do in the area.

You can find a great review of this hotel written by east med wanderer at this link viewtopic.php?t=3248

Nice to see you back on the forums and wonderful to always see more and more Canadians travelling to Turkey.

best regards,

Hotel Rhapsody

Thank you for your recommendation, I have contacted them and look
forward to a reply soon. Many hotels are not open at this time ... do
you think March is a good time to visit the area or are many things closed?

Hi Barbara and MW,

You are welcome for the recommedation. Villa Rhapsody should for sure be opened in March but I am in contact with Jeanne from time to time as well meet on the forums and she is right now travelling to Holland so if you do not hear back right away do not be alarmed. She will get back to you.

March is and can be a nice time to travel along the med. coast but of course sometimes the weather can be un-predictable. So be prepared for a chance of rain. You should have sunny days with cool nights.

Many places will probably just be opening up for the season as it really starts in April. But I would think more than half of the places should be opened and you should not experience any problems.

Have a wonderful trip !!!

Plan B

Post by BarbaraJK » Sat Jan 20, 2007 6:29 am

Hi Carrie, we are rethinking our itinerary. Originally we had planned to arrive in Izmir and drive to Bodrum and depart out of Dalaman.
Now we are debating two options. Start off in Denizli to see Pamukkale area and drive to Fethiye area and then along the coast and fly out of
Antalya. Or, fly to Dalaman and fly out of Antalya. What do you think?

Is Pamukkale a definite must see or is a more relaxing trip along the Mediterranean the way to go? Do you know how long it would take to
drive from Denizli to Fethiye? Is the road a good highway or a local road?

Thank you once again for your help. We are almost there, but keep discovering other wonderful sites to see!

150 miles from Denizli to Fethiye, it's a good road. If you need a break I recommend Kibyra...

Hi again Barbara,

The travelling distance from Pamukkale to Fethiye is about 250 km and will take about 4 hours. The roads are very good without any problems. I had travelled twice last year ( inland route ) from Antalya - Fethiye - Marmaris and the roads were fine.

Pamukkale and the ruins pf Hierapolis are nice to see especially if you are in the area but it is not like the tourist boards pictures of the past. You only need a half of day to visit the site of Pamukkale.

There is so much to see in Turkey and I know it is hard to decide where and which places to go. I hope that I have helped and if you have other questions please ask.

Carrie

If you're into ruins there's Laodiceia just 10km down the road from Pamukkale. And if you're REALLY into ruins there's Tripolis (20km), Colossae (20km) and even the 7000 year-old Beycesultan Tumulus (90km).
