Fethiye is one of those rare locations where it seems all the elements have conspired to make the ideal retirement destination. The sun shines 300 days of the year, living costs are low, local facilities are excellent and travel links to Europe are extensive - and improving all the time. It’s no wonder that Fethiye is home to the most expats per capita in the country.
We have gathered a list of the best retirement homes in the Fethiye region and explained just what makes them unique.
It's just a two minute walk to Calis Beach from this lovely complex, but really, most days you could get away with not even leaving the grounds.
These lovely apartments are centred around a large swimming pool and mature gardens, and each apartment looks out over this communal area. There are just three properties left on the complex - a three-bedroom duplex apartment, with 150m2 living space, sea views and a Jacuzzi master bedroom, and two three-bedroom ground floor apartments with 114m2 of living space.
The complex is well looked after, with grounds kept shipshape and 24-hour security. If you do fancy rejoining the outside world, Calis Beach's shops, restaurants, cafes and bars are just a short stroll away.

Calis Beach is one of those seaside spots that seems to be permanently in holiday mode. And this property fits right in - everything about this home is geared towards the sunshine, and outdoor living. Even on the odd grey day you can sit by the long front windows and gaze out over the pool, waiting for the sun to make its inevitable reappearance.
More than 200m2 of living space is ample room for this villa's four bedrooms and three bathrooms - ideal for visiting grandchildren (who won't be spending much time inside after they spot the pool). Bedrooms are fitted with en suite bathrooms, the kitchen is spacious and modern, and that living area - floor to ceiling windows to let the sunshine in all year round.
The villa is fully furnished and priced to sell today.
These lovely apartments have a secret. While they look fairly compact, they're tardis-like inside, with 120m2 of living space - plenty of room for the three generous bedrooms, two bathrooms and decent-sized kitchen. There's even space for a Jacuzzi bath, and a barbecue outside on the stone balcony.
Just a few minutes walk from the apartment is the Calis town centre, where there are bars, restaurants, supermarkets and cafes. In short: everything you need, just a stone's throw away. We can't think of a single property in Calis that is a better bargain than this superb complex. Call us today and find out more.

The bulk of retirees head for Calis Beach, but if you’re willing to venture inland you could be in for a very pleasant surprise in the form of Uzumlu.
