(from Jo, Hanwell, West London, September 2010)
Villa Taurus exceeded all of our expectations. The villa is extremely clean and well maintained, comfortably furnished and with a lovely well-equipped kitchen. It really feels like a 'home'. The shared pool is an excellent size and depth and is beautifully maintained. The garden areas around the villa and those surrounding it are planted with an array of plants and brightly coloured flowers complimented by areas of lush green lawns. The view of the mountains from the villa balcony is spectacular and cannot adequately be captured in words or in photographs. The villa's mountain/forest location is wonderful with amazing beaches only a relatively short distance away and ancient Lycian ruins literally on the doorstep! The villa provided a perfect base for one of the most enjoyable holidays we have had. We will definately be returning!

It was perfect. You have really thought of everything. The house was brilliant, very luxurious, and we spent a lot of time on the balacony and next to the pool.
There wasn't a single thing we needed that could have been provided. As a result we did lots of cooking of all the ingredients found locally and didn't actually eat out very much. We found a couple of good restaurants on the seafront at Fethiye.
The Kadyanda ruins up the hill (past the tombs) were a real highlight as was Patara beach. We went up to Kadyanda in the evening and it was really spectacular without anyone around.
The Patara ruins (next to the beach) are worth a look.
I definitely want to go and see more of Turkey after that. As you say the history around there is brilliant and I love the way you just come across all the ruins rather than them all having sanitised visitor centres like in the UK!

I had a wonderful time. The villa is spacious, attractive, really comfortable and well kitted-out. The views are stunning and the pool a good size. It’s the sort of place you can do as much or as little as you like, in a very relaxing atmosphere.

We arrived at our villa in the middle of the night so our first impressions were of the villa inside. It is very comfortable, spacious and well equipped. In the morning we were met by the wonderful views from our villa/balcony. It felt a real haven away from the hustle and bustle. It was lovely and quiet and the pool was great. We would also like to say how pleased we were to be staying in the unspolit village of Uzumlu. It has all you need bakery, supermarket, restaurants. We would definitely return and would urge everyone else to go
