Oludeniz, Kayakoy & the Lycian trail

Southwest of the city of Fethiye are a couple of amazing sights.  Kayakoy (ancient Karmylassos) is a ghost town of over 4,000 abandoned stone houses that once made up the greek town of Levissi.  We stayed at Villa Rhapsody, an amazing place in the valley with very nice rooms, great hosts and a swimming pool in a walled garden. We hiked part of the Lycian trail to Oludeniz, famous for its beautiful beaches, sheltered lagoon and national park.
