Dikenchik gets five stars. The extraordinarily warm and gracious hospitality of its owners, Ayşe and Cengiz Genç, combined with the comfort of the accommodations here, leave us no other option. In fact, five stars seem insufficient for this Shangri-La. My wife and I initially intended to stay three nights at Dikenchik in late September, 2013 but we extended our stay... More

We simply loved to stay a little while in this marvellous nature retreat in the middle of the forest and with an astonishingly beautiful view of the mountains. We will never forget this so special treat, coming from the heart of Ayse and Cengiz. We were traveling with our 4 year old child and for him too this experience was... More

We had the most wonderful and relaxing time at Dikencik Cottages. Ayse and Cengiz seemed more like family than hosts by the time we departed. They were so friendly, helpful, generous and informative. The cottages and the gardens are really products of their labour of love and thoughtful personal touches are found in the smallest of details. Not to mention... More

From the moment we arrived and were plied with coffee and cake, to the final delicious breakfast, we felt we were in a lovely home. Ayse and Cengiz are wonderful to be with, whether it is talking about food preparation, wild orchids (they have 25 different species on their land) or the issues in the local community. The location is... More

Thank you Ayşe and Cengiz for another delightful short stay. Dikencik Cottages and the nearby village of Yeşiluzumlu are both wonderful Turkish gems. The mixture of clean air, natural habitat and home grown foods are indeed a tonic. We will return again and again....

Staying with Ayse and Cengiz at Dikencik is like staying with good friends or family - you are immediately made welcome and feel at home. This is helped by the relaxed atmosphere and the stunning location. And it really is stunning - the views are therapeutic and great for convalescence. The accommodation is perfect with a communal living space (never... More

a wonderful time, amazing breakfasts and dinners, and indeed occasional snacks too. Can't recommend too highly. We discovered it last year and plan to go every year if we can.

Dikencik is a wonderful place to visit. Ayse and gengis are perfect hosts and the orchids in the grounds are rare treats. The morel festival in the local village was great. They cater for your individual needs. You could not wish for more

Dear Hilary, It's really a pleasure to see again this year. Thanks for sharing our life once more. Your and your daughter's drawings are already framed and hanged on the wall of our winter garden. We already missed you. Love from Dikencik. More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Dikencik Cottages – a sylvan retreat in the mountains of Fethiye; nestled in tranquil forest, some 24 km outside Fethiye, 4 km above the quiet center of Yeşilüzümlü, the unspoiled tranquility of the area is both awesome and invigorating, yet at the same time relaxing. Dikencik is a perfect retreat from the bustle of city life, close to the city, yet a world away. You will feel yourself relaxing as you drive through woods to the tranquil village of Yesiluzumlu. For anyone who really wants to get away from everything associated with the mass tourism resorts on the Mediterranean coasts of Turkey, Dikencik Cottages, hidden away in the Fethiye mountain forests really fits the bill. ... more   less
