Kayakoy is a historic village often referred to locally as “the ghost town”. Tucked into a beautiful green valley between Oludeniz and Fethiye, it once homed a thriving Anatolian Greek community until a forced population exchange in 1923 left the town abandoned.
A visit to Kayakoy will likely mesmerise you. It is a location that feels a world away from the busy tourist resorts of Hisaronu, Oludeniz and Fethiye, and all reached within a 20-minute drive or bus ride. The ruins consist of hundreds of roofless, crumbling old stone houses stretching up the hillside connected by narrow stone lanes. There are the remains of churches, schools and chapels, all lying in various states of disrepair and giving a fascinating insight into the past. It’s said over 6,000 people once lived in Kayakoy, and as you walk around you can imagine how they once lived. The ruins of Kayakoy are extraordinary, and the area does have a different, atmospheric feel. Thankfully, much of the valley is now protected, meaning strict building and development laws apply, and the ruins on the hillside are a museum.
Property development in Kayakoy is restricted, so the area does still retain an authentic village feel. It is an area that will appeal to those that want something different to your average resort setting, those that want a more tranquil property tucked into nature. There is a growing selection of tastefully built, boutique properties in the area, and the centre does have a good selection of cafes, BBQ restaurants and mini-markets so the essentials are all readily available.
