There are several ways to explore the local area,
but none more cheap and convenient than the Dolmus (pronounced dohl-moosh).
These are shared mini busses, running a pre-determined route and may
be stopped at any point along the way. For 1YTL (approx. 40p) you
can leave the villa and be in the romantic town of Fethiye within
Taxis are another inexpensive option.
A late-night Taxi from Fethiye to Çalış should cost around 15YTL (approx.
£6). You will also find taxi drivers are willing to take you
to the nearby Migros supermarket and wait whilst you do your shopping.
Be sure to agree a price up front though!
During the summer months, there is also a river dolmus
which runs from Çalış to Fethiye harbour and back every half an hour.
The journey takes around 25 minutes and costs 5YTL (approx. £2).
This is a fabulous way to view the wonderful mountainous scenery of
