Kayaköy is one of the touristic stops of Fethiye, which is less frequented, but which is preferred by those who go. Indeed, it is impossible not to go to this huge ghost village, which completely covers the slopes of a hill with its half-destroyed historical houses, and it is a place that should be on everyone's list of places to visit in Fethiye. But one is somewhat resentful that the pain of thousands of people who had to leave this place has been reduced to a touristic stop.

Are you sun or a snow lover? 

Depending on your preference you can visit Turkey during the hot or cold weather. April, May, September, and October are pleasantly warm, with temperatures of 68°F to 86°F, so are typically the best times to visit Turkey’s ancient sites. June through to September is very hot, with temperatures reaching the mid-thirties on the south coast. 

While November to March can get quite cold in Turkey many hotels in coastal areas close during this cold weather. On the other hand, travelers who enjoy traveling through the low season will enjoy visiting Turkey because they are far less busy.
