We fell so much in love with Dalyan that we decided we wanted to live there so designed and built this house to a high standard for our retirement. The village is close enough for easy accessibility but just far enough away for peace and quiet and to give a glorious outlook. There are many restaurants and bars in the village and a couple of nightclubs. The locals are extremely friendly and there is and wonderful family feel to the village. Public transport and/or arranged trips are good value and easy to use - in all the years we have been to Dalyan we have never found the need to hire a car.
This modern villa is light and airy with the emphaqsis on comfort and serenity. The huge, fully furnished terrace overlooks the private pool, walled garden and spectacular views of the mountains. The villa is open plan with a well equipped modern kitchen and fully air conditioned. The garden surrounds the property and is maintained daily as is the pool whilst maid service is twice weekly (additional cleaning can be requested at a small additional cost).
Dalyan is a gem of a little town, named after the river which links Lake Koycegiz to the Mediterranean. The channels of the river wind through the reedbeds of the estuary amidst spectacular mountain scenery. Dalyan is quoted as being "one of the last corners of paradise". Surrounded by pine-clad mountains and bulrushes, this is a national conservation area with unspoilt natural beauty. Access to the beach is by "water taxi" an idyllic 40 minute journey past the spectacular 4th century Rock Tombs, or by a 20 minute bus ride to the other end of the beach - and what a glorious unspoilt beach it is.
AIRPORT TRANSFERS - we are happy to arrange your transfers at cost if requested.
