Black tree is located in a very remote and dramatic spot high in the mountains overlooking the sea. It is the ideal place to slow down, reflect and nourish yourself with great food and fresh air. You can very easily while the days away in the shade of the grape vines by the pool or on the veranda of your cottage, and there's no pressure to go hunting for things to see. If you do however like to get up and see the area there are lots of ruins of the ancient city of Lycia which the owner Anthea conducts very lively tours of.

The cottages are beautifully laid out with Turkish textiles and homemade decorations made by Anthea. They are well equipped for self-catering though it's difficult to get produce as varied and fresh as in the farm's restaurant, which serves delicious organic Turkish food all day. If on a tight budget you'll find food to cook but the restaurant is very reasonably priced and portions are big. Also if you are hoping to enjoy your drink be prepared for it to, of course, be much more expensive than in Europe - from £10 for a bottle of red wine.

Neither is this a beach holiday unless you fancy lots of steep downhill driving on unmade roads. If you won;t have a car it's not easy to get around, should you want to leave the farm, though there are a number of walks you can do from the farm - from a short stroll up a hill for an incredible view of mountain sloping down to the sea or longer treks through forest and nine 'lakes'. Once a week Black tree offer a beach service where you can get dropped off on the coast for the day and picked up - but once you get down to the spots full of tourists you'll be relieved to come back to the calm, quiet and cool of Black tree. Once a week is more than enough!

Here you will be welcomed into Bob and Anthea's home as though you are part of the family. It is a very warm and friendly place, ideal as a calming break from modern life, quite unique and thoroughly recommended!

This is an isolated organic farm with nine self-catering cottages. It is in a beautiful location 15 km south (and a world away from) Oludeniz.

The cottages are comfortable but not deluxe (no air-con but being high up it is cool enough at night for this not to be a problem). Like everywhere in Turkey the tap water isn't drinkable but you don't have to buy bottled water as there is a well on site and a nearby spring.

There is a small pool with shaded sitting areas. There are lots of things for children to do: rabbits to feed; a games room; a craft room and pottery; ponies and donkeys to ride; a soft chill out room with a dvd player.

If you don't want to buy fresh produce from the shop and cook yourself there is a restaurant with a varied and delicious menu.

It is not a good base for extensive touring (as I said it is remote) but there are excellent beaches - Kabak and Patara - within an hour's drive and the ancient ruins of Xanthos and Tlos and the wonderful Saklekent Gorge within easy reach.

Anthea and Bob the proprietors are friendly and helpful.

The atmosphere is gentle and relaxing - we felt refreshed in mind and body after our stay - our only regret was having to leave

Blacktree Cottages is an enclave of cottages, restaurant, and pool high above Fethiye, and isolated by a dramatic mountainous road - the last 9kms of which are unmade and not for the faint-hearted. We stayed there in June of this year and were initially concerned and disppointed to be the only people on site. But we were made very welcome, the owner Anthea and her Turkish husband Bob did everything they could to make our stay enjoyable and the restaurant gave us a full range of choices - despite being the only customers. We soon found that being alone up at Blacktree had it's advantages. Anthea regaled us with interesting, amusing and (sometimes ) scurrilous stories garnered from her 30 odd years in Turkey and was also a mine of information on the local area, walks and village life and gossip. She also initiated us into the delights of some very cheap red wine - no label, no vintage !

The site itself is also much, much, prettier than the pictures on their website suggest and the setting is also much more dramatic - with astonishing valley views from the pool and terrace.

Were there any downsides ? Not really, the cottages are simple but well appointed. Self-catering woud be dificult though as supplies are difficult to get. This didn't worry us as I had no intention fo doing anything for myself . But it might be of concern to those with families. The pool is also rather small , and even though we were on our own we didn't use it much as it was only a few strokes from side to side.

Overall, this is magical place for people who like peace and quite, mountains and their wildlife, and a chance to see Turkish village life in all its guises. Almost perfect in face - but they need a bigger pool !
