About Seydikemer

Seydikemer, previously known as ‘Kemer’, should not be confused with the purpose built Kemer resort in Antalya.

Kemer (Seydikemer) near Fethiye is the polar opposite. Seydikemer is small traditional Turkish working town largely dependent on farming.

It’s located just a 35 minute drive towards Antalya from Fethiye. Seydikemer has a peaceful and traditional atmosphere and feels a world away from the nearby tourist resorts.

 The area was only granted town status in 2014 with the ‘Seydi’ prefix added to take into account the merging of neighbouring villages including one called Seydiler.

Today Seydikemer is a patchwork quilt of open fields and a large river running through the town center, the pine clad Taurus mountains surround it – the views are superb.

The centre is very Turkish with plenty of day to day shops, a few restaurants, lokantas, cafes, tea houses and a weekly open market.

The majority of the residents are Turkish but the area has grown in popularity over the last 10 years and there are now many foreigners happily enjoying life with the locals. Apartments and villas for sale in Seydikemer can still be found at a much more reasonable price than some of the other more expensive resorts closer to the sea.

Seydikemer has everything you need for everyday living and transport links are excellent to Fethiye and local surrounding villages.

Patara beach, an 18 kilometer long white sandy beach one of the regions finest, is 30 minutes away and the ski centre at Seki is under an hour.

Nearby places of interest include Saklikent gorge, the antique site of Tlos and the natural beauty of Yaka Park.

If you are seeking an escape to the country but still want the bright lights within reach, Seydikemer may appeal.

Perhaps one of the main reasons to invest is that you do get more for your money with substantial villas and properties for sale in Seydikemer with larger plots of land.
