Ortakoy surrounds the foot of the Bosphorus Bridge and has kept a village feel throughout the town.


Life centres on Iskele Meydani, the quayside square, which was until recently busy with fishermen unloading the day’s catch.

Ortaköy is now known for its lively Sunday market, which packs the streets and the square and its shops selling the works of local artists. Ortaköy is also the place to visit for bars and restaurants. In the summer, these places to eat and drink are one of the best ways to experience the nightlife in Istanbul.

Mecidiye Mosque, Ortaköy’s most impressive landmark is beautifully ornate. It is located on the waterfront and is highly visible by passing boats. This mosque was built in 1855 by Nikogos Balyan who also built the Dolmabahce Palace.

The neighbourhood of Ortaköy was also the place where George W. Bush made his speech during the NATO Summit (2004). This took place in the Galatasaray University. Ortaköy is the host of many different religions. These being Jewish, Muslim, Orthodox and Christian.

Detail from property rental advert no. 228 about ORTAKOY HOLIDAY RENTALS

We are situated in a working village and we have a number of fields surrounding villas, for your complete relaxation, the local people often offer us items from their trees or locally grown produce. Amenities within the village of Ortakoy, a short walk away, a few village shops selling basic provisions and Bekir, the shop owner, is very welcoming. There is also a small hospital and a Turkish restaurant. Spend a day at the most picturesque beach in Turkey at Olu Deniz, with shallow and beautiful lagoon for real relaxation. Or enjoy the 16 kilometres of protected, white sandy beach at Patara. It is completely unspoilt, with no tidal current, so it is ideal for children to safely swim, a real gem! There are a number of quality restaurants a short drive away, one in particular is on an island between 2 rivers and has fantastic locally caught or farmed trout, you eat the meal sitting over the river. I really enjoyed the ambience. Alternatively there is a wine house in another village where the atmosphere is relaxed and the food is very pleasant. Fethiye, an ancient and bustling town, with magnificent natural harbour, lovely sea views, and wonderful promenade with bars and restaurants, a great place to watch the world go by is only 40 minutes drive away. There are plenty of restaurants and a variety of shops. I enjoy this variety of souvenir, leather, carpet and gold shopping. Turkey is extremely good value for money. Whether you are visiting the large weekly market in Fethiye or their many shops, which remain open until late into the balmy evening. You can expect warm and welcoming Turkish hospitality, refreshing apple tea is often served while negotiating prices! You will find Turkey to be a very child friendly and safe environment, with low crime rates. They have play areas including a trampoline area in Fethiye near to the port or quiet areas for you to relax and enjoy this lovely environment. Fantastic delicatessens, their cakes/sweets are pretty scrummy. The quality of food is to a very high standard. A visit to a traditional Turkish bath (Hammam) is well worth a visit. A trip to a Turkish Barber is also a real treat for a haircut or shave, so I hear. Many men come to Turkey, unshaven or needing a haircut to experience this Additionally you could explore the variety of activities within the surrounding region, the spectacular Saklikent Gorge, where you can go river rafting, trekking in the mountains or enjoying the scenery. Visit the many interesting archeological sites. Purify the mind and body with a traditional Turkish bath. Having tried this for the first time recently, I have to say this is a real treat. There is plenty of spectacular countryside close to the villas, which can be easily explored by foot or jeep, watch out for the tortoises in the middle of the road! As well as wildlife, we even have turtles swimming at the bottom of our boundary. Our villas are ideal for people who like to walk, as the fantastic countryside provides wonderful walking for all levels and abilities. To get the best out of a walking holiday we would suggest you plan your holiday in Spring or Autumn. There is an aqua park at Calis, fun for all of the family. All around us are great painting opportunities, we have an easel for customers use, the scenery changes so much from season to season so please select a time that suits you. You may want Spring flowers, early season, poppy fields in May or cornfields to paint in September. We would suggest car hire to see the great scenery and range of activities. Or for a true taste of Turkey travel on the local dolmus buses, a real treat (bus stop close to villas). For a more adventurous time you can arrange scuba diving, paragliding and canyoning trips. Boat trips, as well as 12 island boat trips there are also a wide range of day boat trips available, taking you to beautiful coves, sailing on a wooden gulet. It is a real treat to have the engine turned off and sailing under the sails and wind as we did recently on a trip to Gocek, 2 stops for a swim in secluded areas. Should you wish to have a gulet cruise for a number of days contact Liz. Great scuba diving from Fethiye with European Diving School to suit all levels, comes highly recommended, see our villa feedback. A number of people choose Turkey as a destination to get married, on a boat for example, the family can stay in the villas afterwards, the bride and groom can head off for an exclusive gulet cruise, as one idea for a memorable wedding. Camel Trek, in the heart of nature, in authentic and traditional Kayakoy, a day trip on a camel can be arranged, passing through fields, village houses seeing the Lycian rock tombs and mosque, seeing the area from quite a different aspect.
