Alycia is an individual private villa located in a quiet area about a 10 min walk from Dalyan. It has 2 double and 2 twin en-suite bedrooms (one double is on the ground floor) each with double wardrobe, balcony and stunning views of either the mountains or towards the ancient ruined city of Kaunos.
The ground floor of the villa is large, cool and open-plan comprising fully integrated kitchen with split level electric oven with grill and gas hob, large fridge-freezer, washing machine, dishwasher, etc, cloakroom/toilet, dining area and lounge. The lounge has comfortable chairs and sofas (not sofa-beds), flat-screen TV, satellite receiver, DVD player, iPod dock and safe. All rooms are fully air conditioned and the villa has free WiFi.
Outside is a large covered terrace with dining table and chairs for 8 people. Also a 9m x 5m pool and terrace, shower, 8 sun loungers, fixed BBQ, Turkish pergola with table and cushions seating 8 people and a large garden planted to lawn, shrubs, pomegranate, lemon and orange trees.
Outside the villa is one of only a few Storks' nests in Dalyan. You will feel really privileged to be watching these protected birds feeding their young and giving them flying lessons from their nest on the pole right outside the villa. The same pair returns every year and unusually, have 3 or 4 young each time - their behaviour is really spectacular!
Our manager visits the villa daily to maintain the pool & garden & will look after you throughout your stay. We also provide guests with a Turkish mobile phone primed with numbers for local taxis, restaurants, boat operators etc and for our manager in case of any problem.

The Turquoise Coast/Lycia region
Alycia Villa is located in the outskirts of Dalyan, which is a designated World Heritage Site and is a low-key, unspoilt tourist town which has become immensely popular for its warmth of welcome, friendliness and safe, hassle-free environment (except perhaps for a bit of good-natured Saturday market tradesmen's banter, but nobody takes them seriously).
There are many wonderful things to do and places to visit: the Sultaniye thermal mud baths, Kaunos ruined city, river trips, river-walking along the incredible Sakklikent Gorge, sailing around the blue Turquoise Coastal islands and bays, turtle watching, snorkeling and visiting the freshwater Koycegiz Lake. You can even choose your own fish in Fethiye Fish Market and have it cooked in your chosen restaurant nearby.
Dalyan is also only 4 hrs drive from historic Ephesus & Pamukkale which is Turkey's foremost hot mineral spa and dazzling white travertine deposits forming unbelievably deep-blue terraced pools all down the mountainside.
The Villa is only 5 min walk from the town, 200 m from the Dalyan River and has views of the wonderful surrounding countryside, including part of the ancient ruins of Kaunos; it is also only 4 km from Iztuzu (Turtle) Beach by river taxi. Iztuzu Beach is a conservation area for nesting Loggerhead Turtles and has been featured on TV programmes by David Bellamy who is a frequent visitor to the turtle sanctuary on Turtle Beach, where turtles injured by fishing boat propellers are cared for and treated and (hopefully) released back to the sea.
Beside the Villa is also one of only a handful of storks' nests in Dalyan. You can enjoy amazing displays of storks feeding their young and giving them flying lessons from their nest on a pole right outside the villa. The same pair return every year and unusually, have 3 or 4 young each time; we are privileged to have these protected birds so close by and their behaviour is really spectacular!
Other Activities besides river-walking and snorkeling include turtle watching, crab fishing, sea and river boat trips, white water rafting, Jeep safari, archaeological browsing, Turkish (hammam) baths, hot springs and mud baths. Oh - and sunbathing (the sun is guaranteed!)
Dalyan town has many excellent restaurants and bars, shops and a vegetable, fruit, hardware and tourist market on Saturdays and serves both locals and tourists.
Between 1 June and 30 August, to help you settle in on Day 1 of your holiday we will arrange to take every guest by taxi to a recommended riverside restaurant for a Free Turkish Breakfast. You can relax by the river on your first day and feed the turtles and fish whilst you eat breakfast and unwind. Everything is arranged and paid-for.
