There is a relaxed village square in Uzumlu with a mosque, tea houses, excellent restaurants & pide (Turkish pizza) houses. Some restaurants will pick you up from the villa if you book a table. The people are very friendly. The village is famous for its wine and lace making and is known for its fine grapes. The word ‘uzum’ means “grape“, so you have a wonderful opportunity to try the local wine. You may be offered the local wine as you visit the village shops run by the local women who make & sell their tablecloths & linen products.
The village has a bakery, a butcher and several mini-markets. Many supermarkets will deliver to the villa. There is also a market every Friday where local farmers and traders sell their goods at very reasonable prices. You can find larger supermarkets, banks, restaurants & bars in Fethiye, the nearest town which is about 20 mins drive from Uzumlu. Here you can buy leather goods, jewellery, Turkish carpets & rugs. Other places of interest in the town are the traditional Turkish baths, the bustling market on Tuesdays and Fridays in Fethiye and a fish market which is open 7 days a week. You can buy your fish in the market and have it cooked in one of the restaurants next to the market.
Down on the promenade in Fethiye, you can gaze out over the harbour, with the mountains in the background, and enjoy a drink or a meal at one of the restaurants along the waterfront. From here, it is also possible to charter your own boat or join a gulet cruise. The promenade has recently been extended so it is now possible to walk from Fethiye to Calis.
