Less than half an hour’s drive from Fethiye lies the quiet village of Chum10. The name means ‘with grape’ and the area is renowned for its local grape products such as wine, grape juice and sweets. This traditional village lies in a valley and commands spectacular views of the Taurus Mountains. The village dates back to Ottoman times and is evident when you explore the windy, cobbled streets of the village.
Above the village lies Cadianda, known as ‘Kadawati’ in Lycian times (and spelt Kadyanda on the road signs). Monuments and inscriptions at the site go back to the 5th Century B.C. The ruins (some also from Roman and Byzantine periods) are scattered over the pine clad mountains, including Turkish bath, stadium and theatre. The views are magnificent. Another site relatively nearby is the Lycian city of Oineanda off of the A350 to Denizli. There is a theatre and remains of the Agora, an aqueduct and the city walls.
