Villa Babylon has an extraordinary setting, perched high above the area to the east of the Olu Deniz seaside resort, providing sensational views of the mountains that reach, on clear days, as far as those that enclose the Gulf of Fethiye. Terraced gardens surround the property, with Citrus, Peach, Fig and Pomegranate trees. A walled garden screens the limestone paved pools area. It is a dream choice for large groups and extended families, particularly those that relish the idea of an outdoor lifestyle, somewhere not just to stay but to really enjoy. Recently upgraded, its design, size, elevation and amenities make it the number one choice in Olu Deniz with five individually designed bedrooms (including two Master Suites) five bathrooms, a guest rest-room, a Family Room, a magnificent Media Lounge, extensive indoor and outdoor dining and lounging areas, balconies, terraces and all with spectacular mountain views.
The highlight of the property is undoubtedly the outdoor living spaces. The fragrant flowers of Orange trees and a collection of exotic Palms fill the lovingly-maintained garden which is designed to provide numerous, tranquil seating areas and play spaces for children. The pool area is a sun basked focal point – a Whirlpool seating 10 with a gentle water-fall that cascades into the main pool. A further, sun-set facing, landscaped terrace complete with Weber Gas Barbecue presents the perfect space for an ‘al fresco’ lifestyle.
Villa Babylon is both contemporary and stylish, offering true luxury, real comfort, enhanced security, great service, and wonderful, complimentary amenities, all just moments from Turkey's most famous beach and lagoon.
