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 because we were so happy here. The nights were cool but we were warm and very comfortable in one of the Inn's lovely houses. More than a mere cottage, it offered a spacious bedroom, a large and tastefully appointed living room with fireplace and high ceiling, plus a well equipped kitchen. Outside the living room was a lovely porch with chairs and table; the perfect place to sip a glass of wine and view some beautiful mountain scenery. Ayşe is a highly accomplished cook who prepares delicious meals including breakfast and, at guests' option, lunch and dinner as well. Ingredients for her sumptuous dishes come from Dikenchik's own garden and animals, or are sourced at the local village bazaar. A churl might be tempted to dock Dikenchik because of its rather remote location. That would be grossly unfair since the website makes it perfectly clear that the property is located well up in the mountains some 20 minutes away from Fethiye. If you seek a restful experience amidst wonderful people and lovely scenery, do yourself a favor and stay a while at Dikenchik.
