A villa in Ovacik is perfect for travellers looking to get away from it all, to be close to, but not directly in, the action, and to spend lazy days beach hopping and swimming in indigo bays. Set in a valley near the Babadag mountain, Ovacik lies between the bustling town of Fethiye and the idyllic Blue Lagoon, offering peace and tranquillity and a laid-back vibe. The village also has a distinctly British feel due to the large number of expats that call it home. Ovacik has restaurants, so no need to travel far from your Ovacik villa, and is situated close to beaches and some of Europe’s most famous paragliding spots. Families and couples will love an Ovacik villa holiday, with other draws being long summers and cool breezes coming off the nearby mountain.
