About  Uzumlu

yesil uzumlu

The word Yesil Uzumlu when translated means ‘with green grapes’. This is where the village takes its name – the abundance of grapevines (uzum) that grow in the area.

Renowned for its local wine making, the village is just 15km from Fethiye (20 minutes drive) and is growing in popularity with overseas investors who relish in its locally grown produce and outstanding, almost alpine, vistas.

Uzumlu is an ideal rural country escape. Surrounded by rolling fields filled with grape, citrus, almond and olive groves, babbling brooks and pine forests.

Just 7 kilometers from the village lies the ancient ruins of Cadianda, an amazing ancient city and a popular stop off on rural jeep safaris. The views of the Fethiye region from this elevated historical site are worth the walk up to, largely undiscovered the city is just waiting to be unerthed and marvelled at.

The area is at its prettiest in springtime when its fields burst into life with a beautiful array of poppies and wild flowers.

Gourmets will delight in its annual Morel (Kuzu Gobegi) mushroom festival. The village has many old wood and stone houses and narrow lanes giving it great character so far removed from the commercial holiday resorts just a 20 minute drive away.

This area offers an escape yet is within a short distance of the coast and all necessary amenities. Uzumlu has developed an established foreign ex-pat community as a result. The village centre has a good selection of local restaurants, cafes, mini-markets and a weekly fresh produce market where all the essentials can be purchased.

As Uzumlu sits inland, buyers are often able to gain more property for their money compared to estates in prominent beach side and resort locations. There is a good selection of private villas and apartments for sale in Uzumlu

Distance from Dalaman Airport to Yesil Uzumlu = 60 Kilometres (1 hour)
