    Hi,

    My name's Alan. I'm 54, English and have lived near Fethiye, SW Turkey for the last 4 years with my wife and 4 dogs.

    I've joined the forum to get as much information as possible about motorhoming as we're looking at buying one next year to tour Turkey and Europe.

    Hi Kaya Koyu Walker

    Welcome to MHFun, we know Fetihye quite well from our visits to Olu Deniz.
    Would love to pay a visit in our motorhome when time permits.
    Kaya Koyu the ghost town is one of the spookiest places we have been to:Eeek:
    Good luck in your search for a motorhome, any questions just ask away, lots of friendly and knowledgeable folk on here.
    May have a few questions to ask you one day when we get on our way to Turkey.
    Brisey

    Hi Allan

    Welcome to MHFUN!!

    Ive also got a place in Turkey between Fethiye and Calis (which we rent out if anyones interested :thumb::Wink: 10% discount for Funsters of course:BigGrin:) which we plan to retire to. I love the country and the people :thumb:

    During our travels around Turkey we see very few motorhomes and even fewer on a Turkish number plate but when we do decide to "Do One" and "get the hell out of Dodge!!" We plan on trying to take our motorhome with us (I know its not easy importing vehicles into Turkey but we live in hope!!).

    Oh yes and we love Kaya village as well, its a very eerie place but great for an afternoon walk!!:thumb:

    Hii alan,

    I've walked from Oludeniz to Kaya Koyu (Ghost Town?) a few times.

    We have been wintering in Turkey in our motorhome since 2000. We have spent many months on Bob's beach at Olu before they went mad and spoilt the place.

    We plan to be in Oludeniz in the van Jan 09 so we can arrange a meet and hopefully give you some advice on motorhoming.


    Look forward to meeting you.

    Don

    Hi Don,
    Have you been to the campsite at Sugar Beach?? We had a look round the place in June and it looked ok with lots of shading trees. Its on the road to the right of the main car entrance to the car park at Olu Deniz about a 1/4 mile down on the left hand side. Looks a bit "Hippy" in the summer but in the winter im sure it would be a really great place to park up.

    Hi Dazzer,

    Sugar Beach was called Bob's beach up until 2006 when the place was revamped. :Eeek: We spent many a pleasant month there in the winter. We use to camp on the lagoon side but they moved us back under the trees which is a no go in the winter.:Blush::Blush:

    This was us on Bob's Beach before the revamp.

    This was during the revamp.

    Moving house Turkish Style :Eeek::Eeek:

    We were trapped on the site for two weeks when they decided to lay a new sewer in 2004 I think.

    There's never a dull moment in Turkey and they are all very friendly and warm.

    Don

    We can't go on meeting like this TLF member! Think we're going to enjoy this forum, and looks like we will certainly gather lots of useful info.
    Regards
