The Lazy Olive (Tembel Zeytin) villa is a spacious four-bedroom country retreat in a two-acre/8000 sq m private garden, for lovers of nature, silence, the rugged beauty of Turkey's Toros mountains and Mediterranean coast. Guests can normally enjoy a beautiful natural pool. Spring and autumn are gorgeous for climbing or trekking the Lycian Way, summer is sunny and hot. Within easy reach are three stunning beaches, the ruins of the classical cities and authentic local towns with vibrant markets.

The space
All four bedrooms have beautiful views and comfortable beds. There is a 8mx8m (25'x25') central space that houses the kitchen, sitting room and dining room to eat inside. A wide front terrace and big outdoor dining table overlook the valley. Steps lead down to the (unfenced) natural pool. This property is ideal for a group of up to eight people or two families with older children. It's a great base for climbing or trekking. The approach road is 2km of village road, guaranteeing seclusion.

Where you’ll be

Kumluca, Antalya, Turkey

Olympos is a unique place, even for Turkey. You're within five km of the haunting ruins of ancient Olympos, a premier city of the Lycian League that inspired the U.S. constitution's state-based system. Cirali and Adrasan - two of the prettiest and most unspoiled beaches in the whole of Turkey - are 20-25 minutes away by car. They have many great restaurants. The back-packers' treehouse paradise at the gates of Olympos has many live-music night events. Easy day trips include visits to the ruins of Olympos and ancient Phaselis, cable car rides up to the 2,400m peak of Mt Olympos, lunch and river swimming in the cool Kemer gorge, night-time walks up to the natural, everlasting flames of Chimaera on the flanks of the mountain above Cirali beach, and inexpensive day-long expeditions in private charter boats where the captain will cook you fish for lunch in one of several charming bays where you stop to swim.
