Uzumlu is a typical Turkish village. It doesn't have the medieval charm of a French village or the beauty of a whitewashed Greek village, but it's a great place to enjoy the dream.
Market day on Fridays gives you fresh milk from local cows. (One behind our house). Newly churned butter. Nose tingling baked bread from the village bakery. Fresh  seasonall garden herbs and veg from the ladies on the steps.
Wander back to the house through the herd of of goats that parade throughthe village twice a day.
 Enjoy a true village breakfast at home or at Lup Lup cafe or Izems or the gozleme cafe on the market corner. 
And it's WARM

Lup Lup normally opens temporarily for the mushroom festival  in Apriland then fully again in May.
Not tried the poached eggs, but her lasagne, fresh orange and homemade cakes are excellent. She also does turkish specialities which are also delicious

Kemer is a town and Uzumlu a village.
I would choose Uzumlu without a doubt out of the two but that's just my humble opinion, having lived there for 8 years.
Quiet village life, apart from the 3 days of the Mushroom Festival when it's rammed, but choice of places to eat and drink and a good mix of Turks and expats.
