Uzumlu is a small traditional village up in the Taurus mountains, 20 minutes from the seaside port of Fethiye. Its name means "land of the grape" - being a winegrowing area.
It remains a piece of unspoilt Turkey - the feel is vaguely French countryside perhaps.....there is the Wine House, a small vine clad restaurant, a tea house, a mosque, a market (market day is Friday) and a weaver's shop creating beautiful clothes, wallhangings, bedcovers etc from the local material "dastar". There are also small shops for the normal essential daily purchases; a selection of restaurants; and a good general store/butcher, plus a post office (and at last an ATM) and a health centre (just in case!).
The Sunday Times 9th March 2008 strongly recommends a visit to Uzumlu for those in search of old Turkey, with ancient timber houses and open-fronted loom rooms.
The air in Uzumlu is fresher mountain air - it is cooler in summer - away from the madding crowd it's more peaceful than right by the coast.
