“A lovely villa with stunning views over the Med and a charming garden and pool.” The area, Mesudiye near Datca, Turkey is a jewel. It's a 2 and a half hour drive from Dalaman Airport. The last 20 miles are sooo beautiful over stunning mountain roads along the Datca peninsula with amazing views of the Med and Aegean.
The villa is recently built in an elevated position overlooking the coast and villages below. There's a a couple of neighbours, a retired doctor just below and a farm a couple of hundred yards away - they've got some 'wakeful' dogs but it's too far to be a nuisance. Otherwise all is extremely tranquil.
You need a car of course and you can drive to the beaches (nearest about 7-8 mins), but there's a huge selection from deserted coves to places with restaurants and bars where you are cosseted with drinks and sunbeds etc.
The villa has everything you need, the pool is decent size and well maintained. The garden is charming and you can pick your own vegetables.
There's a wide choice for going out in the evening - the local villages all have variety of restaurants or for something more lively, go into Datca (20 mins).
We have been there three times and love it, the owner speaks English is very helpful and they are constantly improving and renewing. If I would change anything I'd rearrange the kitchen, it's OK you can do all you need, but if there's two of you in there you'll be tripping over each other...
Highly recommended if you want to get away from tourist crowds in a very unspoilt region.
“I am a senior executive with a global luxury hotel company” From the very start the experience was excellent, the interaction with owner on the web and on the phone was friendly and sincere, The booking was easy and website information accurate and cearr.,Owner offered very helpful assistance with transit to and from the airport,and the rental car arrangments. It was very helpful and cost efficient. Moreover, the villa was absolutely beautiful, the rooms were gorgeously appointed with authentically local touches, top of the line electronics and appliances. Several places on the decks and balconies for our family of 5 to find refuge and unite for drinks and meals. The place was spotless yet flet like a real home. The location near the sea and the views were incredible. The infinity pool was great and enjoyed by all. We have rented several villas in the past in Italy, France ,Canada and this was by far the best and greatest experience.
“Beautiful Villa and stunning location.” Had a super time at Villa Arici. We ordered a turkish meal for the night of our arrival and it was wonderful and such a delightful start to our holiday, cooked by Marco. The villa was spotless and had everything you could wish for. Diana always on hand to help us have a very enjoyable holiday with tips and ideas. The fresh eggs from the chickens that Marco and Diana tend to daily were wonderful and made a great breakfast every morning. If you got up early in the morning, mountain goats that live on the rock behind the villa can be watched as they make their way down. Amazing to watch from the terrace with an early morning coffee in hand. The 12 Island Tour was the highlight of my holiday, we booked a private gulet, WOW! The boat tours , mudbaths and hot springs and beach were fab too. Saturday is market day and a great place to buy all your fresh salad and veg. We bought some seabass from the fish shop and had a wonderful fish BBQ at the villa , watching the sun go down. Diana, Marco and Chocolate the dog are at the villa 3-4 hours a day ,mainly in the afternoon till dark, gardening and putting the chickens to bed, and are happy to give ideas on trips and days out. Our family had a magical and wonderful time in Dalyan.
