Villa | 3 bedrooms | sleeps 6
Dalyan is situated on Turkey's Turquoise coast and is only 20 minutes from Dalaman airport. Transport can be arranged to and from the airport on request. Dalyan is a small town with its own harbour. There are lots of family-type bars and friendly restaurants, many of them with stunning views of the famous Caunos rock tombs.
There are many things to do and see in the area surrounding Dalyan. Take a small boat over to the ancient city of Caunos with its amphitheater and watch the sunset; visit the mud baths and thermal springs reputed to cure all ills and go home looking 10 years younger! Excursions can be organised from the villas : boat trips, snorkeling, bird-watching, horse riding, overnight trips to the world famous archaeological site at Ephesus and the petrified water cascades at Pamukkale.
Our nearest beach is the famous 7km long Iztuzu Beach which is carefully protected as turtles bury their eggs in the sand. The beach can be reached by boat or small bus. A small café/bar serves drinks and snacks.
Please note the pool is open from May to October only.

|Further details outdoors|
Externally, there is a large patio to the front and side of the villa, containing open and shaded areas. The shaded area consists of a covered patio under which a wooden table and six chairs sit for al fresco dining. Four sun loungers are also provided.
There is a stunning 50m pool and each villa has its own private "pod" area. Please note that the pool is open from May to October. We have found it is too cold for swimming outwith the main season. Reduced rates will be given for those using the villa outside these dates where the pool is not in use.
A welcome pack will be supplied on arrival.
Dondu, our host, will also meet you at the villa whatever time, day or night, to greet you.
We also have an English/Turkish speaking host to assist with trips or questions you have about Dalyan or the surrounding area.
The Turquoise Coast/Lycia region
Dalyan is situated only 20 minutes from Dalaman Airport. Excursions can be organised from the villas : boat trips, snorkelling, bird-watching, horse riding, overnight trips to the world famous archaeological site at Ephesus and the petrified water cascades at Pamukkale. For those who are a little more adventurous why not try white water rafting or even a Microlite! Take a 12 island cruise on a Gulet from the stunning Gocek.
Dalyan is a beautiful place in which to stay. It is excellent for walkers and bicycle hire is a great way to explore the area. There are family-type restaurants to relax and enjoy your evening and a few bars dotted around to pass the hours away. One of our favourite trips about a 30 minute driver to Yuvarlakcay in the mountains where you can have lunch and a quick dip in the cool mountain waters. A trip to the mud baths is a must, especially if you wish to return looking 10 years younger!

Many thanks for your lovely review. Amazingly Dalyan has stayed the same and not become commercialised - we still love it for that very reason. The pool is hard to beat for us keen swimmers :) I will pass on your comments to Dondu as well.
