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.
For your convenience, we also provide lifts up to the main road after breakfast and in the early evening.
