Yakamoz Hotel, PK 47, Fethiye, 48300, Mugla, Turkey
We are located in a mountain valley nearly 1500 feet above sea level, which means we catch any pleasant cooling breezes in high summer. A few miles to our rear is Babadag, one of the tallest mountains in the area at 6000 feet and a magnificent sight, especially at sunset when the peak often turns pink or orange.
Surrounded mostly by family-run Turkish farms, the immediate area around the hotel is either forest plantation or a patchwork of small fields where crops are grown and stock graze. In May, these fields are a mass of beautiful wild flowers where much wildlife flourishes, including many birds.
Yakamoz is on the very outskirts of the main tourist area and benefits from a minimum of noise. The small road leading to the hotel passes through scented pine forests before opening out into a panoramic view of the valley. Because we are a little off the beaten track, the hotel is regarded by our guests as a green oasis of calm and tranquility. However, a 10 minute stroll takes you up to the main Fethiye-Oludeniz road where regular Dolmus services allow easy access to the areas many attractions.
