We would like to introduce our hotel and its facilities which we believe could provide an idyllic functional base to explore that part of the Lycian Way and surrounding areas which lie South of Antalya. Situated in Adrasan Province, 100kms South of Antalya and some 16kms South of Mount Olympus, the Adrasan Margarita Otel nestles below the pine clad hills that surround the beautifully secluded bay of the coastal resort, Adrasan (Cavus) Bay. Ideally placed to use as a regional base or as a stop over, the privately owned and family run Margarita Otel, is a modern contemporary 10 room (all ensuite) unit, complete with an informal restaurant, bar and pool area, all situated in a green oasis. Using the Margarita as a base provides numerous opportunities to venture out on local coastal and inland walks of up to five or six hours duration. Alternatively you can take either the Lycian Way in a southern direction towards Karaöz, or the 16 km nothern route to Mount Olympus.
Flexibility is the name of the game at the Margarita and proprietor Mehmet can arrange to drop you at the start point of a specific route, or if starting from the hotel, collect you on completion. For newcomers to the area, who would like the reassurance of local knowledge, but who do not want to be tied to an itinerary, then for a modest fee guides can be arranged on a daily basis to lead or accompany walkers. However, if you want to ensure the most productive use of your holiday walking time Mehmet can provide itineraries of up to five days duration either with or without guides.
The most suitable walking periods in the year avoid the heat of mid summer, with popular periods running from March. April to mid June, and from mid September to the end of November. As well as the beautiful scenery in this area, you are also very likely to see an abundance of wildlife, birds and flowers. If walking along the coastline, watch out for sea turtles. Access to the area is by direct flight from the UK to Antalya, and then by hotel transport to Cavus Bay, a road journey that takes around 75 minutes. The Margarita Otel will offer you a unique opportuniy to experience the uncommercialised hospitality of Turkey in stunning surroundings, steeped in ancient history at affordable prices.
