Fethiye in Winter

If you choose a home in Fethiye or surrounding area its not just for Summer but all year round.

WINTER IN FETHIYE

Everyone knows that tourists flock to Fethiye and its surrounding area from all over the world. Why do they come to this little piece of paradise? They come for the sun, sand, sea, shopping and much more. What people don't realise is when the shutters go down and tourists leave, Winter in Turkey can be very different and have a beauty all of its own. So if you choose to purchase a home in Turkey it is not just for summer but all the year round.

Fethiye is the main city area and  open all year round with little change to its programme through Winter.  However the coastal villages can be very different.

Let's start with Ovacik - Ovacik is stunning in the winter, the winter sun changes the colours and feel of the mountain range that hugs this green and luscious village. Some of the tourist shops close but most everything else is open. You can still find somewhere for a games night, or gathering of like minded people. Babadag mountain is probably un-passable by vehicle for a couple of months out of the year but if you can get to the top of  this majestic mountain the views are breathtaking.

Next is Oludeniz which is the main tourist area of Fethiye and here most of the shops and restaurants close for the duration, especially on the main strip. You may find a couple of bars open but if you want more Ovacik is only a 10 minute drive away .

Oludeniz in winter is pure beauty, stripped back to its natural bare bones The views as you go down the mountainside  are breathtaking.  The central hub of Oludeniz is where you will see the biggest difference.  The comparison between summer and winter is like night and day. For example, in the season you will find it difficult to walk in a straight line with ambling tourist and paragliding enthusiasts but in the winter Oludeniz has a quiet beauty all of its own. In the day time the deep rich blue of the sea and in the evening dark reds and oranges of the famous sunsets. The picture perfect Blue Lagoon will be stripped back to basics, chairs, sun beds and shades all packed away waiting for the tourist to return but the unspoilt  beauty of the lagoon stands on show for all.

Calis is a mixture of Ovacik and Oludeniz with a healthy number of expats which choose to stay in Calis all year round. Many bars  and restaurants are open to satisfy their needs, be it a pool league or reading club. There are many tourist shops in Summer which close during the Winter period. However you can still sample a perfect winters day of say 15 degrees, strolling down the "plaji" with the  waves and golden sands on your left and restaurants serving everything from Turkish food to Sunday Lunch on the right. Many hours can be whiled away watching the waves and sunsets whilst taking advantage of the food and drink available all year round. 

Uzumlu is a traditional unspoilt area of Fethiye, same all the year through. A mixture of modern villas and some older dwellings deep rooted in the past. Some of these tumble down abodes  house weavers, pot makers and silk screen printers, who often beckon you in for a glass of cay and chat. Uzumlu can be colder as it is higher than Fethiye but you are guaranteed beauty both past and present.

Gocek is a small town in the district of Fethiye, known worldwide for its opulent yachts, hotels and homes.  Open all year round with a few bars and restaurants closing for the winter there is still plenty to do and see in Gocek. In Summer Gocek is all about the boats, luxury yachts, private cruisers and gulets, everything revolves around the sea. However in Winter  it's all about natural beauty, seeing the sights with fresh eyes.

Basically whatever you desire it can still be found in the Fethiye region  in Winter. OK so maybe it's a slower pace of life but none the less just as beautiful and charming as Summer. So if you chose to make Fethiye your permanent home all year round we promise you won't be disappointed.

  • "We bought our apartment in Hisaronu through Angels in October 2016 after considering a purchase in Turkey for several years.

    Emin was most helpful with viewings and guiding us through the process, without any sales pressure. All aspects of the transaction were clearly explained and the buying process, went smoothly. We look forward to seeing Emin and the team again on our next visit."
