About Charles Bentley,
20 years ago I visited Dalyan and fell in love with the outstanding natural beauty of the area and warmth of the local people. I am a retired head teacher of special needs children with conduct disorders. I now own three villas and a ski chalet that I to out and advise people on holidays and property purchase in Turkey ( I was A Place in the Suns Exhibition panel adviser for 4 years ) I now travel extensively and am a keen cyclist and skier.

Thank you John for your positive review look forward to assisting you again in the future
I recently visited Dream Villa with my wife, my son and his Fiancée and my daughter and her partner. Every single one of us was absolutely delighted with the property. It was situated in a nice quiet area only 10 mins walk into town or 3 mins by taxi (15 TL, around £2.75).
The villa was equipped with everything that we needed and far more.
I had never visited the town of Dalyan before and I've fallen in love with it's charm and way of life.
Charles , the owner, was in Dalyan at the time. He was a lovely man , who called on us 2 or 3 times to check that everything was ok and to offer any advice and information that we needed. He was extremely accommodating and nice to chat to.
In summation ,Dalyan Dream is by far the best villa that I have ever stopped in and I cannot rate it highly enough.
Hi Neil and family
We are delighted you enjoyed Dalyan as much as we do and look forward to seeing you and your friends in the future.
Thank you for such a positive review
When we arrived on the first day, the owner Charles was extremely helpful and showed us around giving us information about food, shopping, money exchange etc. We appreciated the help and it made us feel at ease. Furthermore our stay at Dream Dalyan was amazing! The villa is beautiful, well designed, it was very clean and well maintained when we arrived. In addition to this from the balcony we had stunning scenery as we could see the mountains clearly around the villa from a distance. The location of the villa is great as me and partner would walk to the town centre everyday and enjoyed doing so. I hope me and my partner do visit Dalyan in the future as we thoroughly enjoyed our stay and we would love to stay in Dream Dalyan again! Therefore I would definitely l recommend the Dream Dalyan Villa to anyone as I am confident they would be as pleased as I have been with it.
Thank you Aneesah for such a positive review and we look forward to seeing you again in the future
Absolutely brilliant and very comfortable.
DalyanDream villa exceeded my expectation and we all found it very comfortable. Its in a quiet area, which was just perfect. There's a bakery and a corner shop extremely close by and getting on the bikes the villa provides to do the breakfast shopping felt so wondrous. Theres a Turkish Bath literally around the corner, which was perfect. The villa pool is definitely a good size and the depth is good. Just be careful in the shallow end where the stairs are. Corners are a bit sharp! We found some floats/inflatables in the storage area, so don't take any with you, theres plenty. We had everything (and more than) we needed in the villa and any help we needed was a call away, no matter what time. The top room was however, very warm, especially the bathroom. Felt a bit like like a sauna now and again, but that's nothing to complain about. The pool is right at the front of the house, so passer bys can see you. The balconies sit over the pool and you can see the other villas and the mountains. What a great view. The Rep who looked after us on holiday, Dumus, did his job well. He met our needs and was more than understanding over any concerns we had. Charles, the owner of the villa was more than helpful with all the questions I had. All in all, the Villa, the people and the whole holiday was FAB! Highly recommend this villa, and Charles.
Thanks for such a great review
The screens around the pool are one way view only so you cannot be seen from the small road that passes nearby as the screens are reflective but glad you had s great holiday
The property is fabulous, plenty of room, great bedrooms with lots of storage space and a wonderful pool and barbecue with a covered area. The villa is very well equipped. It's about a 15 min stroll into town with lots of lovely restaurants and the locals are very friendly. We would recommend completely.
Dalyan is best known as the home breeding grounds for the giant loggerhead turtle, the winding river and a beach which is not just a natural wonder but also won The Times Best Open Space Award in 2008 and is one of the few natural breeding grounds of the beautiful Carreta Carreta sea turtle which can be seen. Over 6km of golden sands with access by bus, car and boat there are cafeterias at either end for refreshments but plenty of empty space among the dunes to escape to.
The main street is pedestrianized on an evening making it very safe.
The beach is a short Dolmus or boat ride away. Also Lake Koycegiz has mud baths and thermal springs for a fun excursion.
There is an amazing range of habitats in the local area; from the reed beds north of the town to the Koycegiz Lake. With many species of birds, from White Tailed Eagles to Red-rumped swallows, expert birders and amateurs would struggle not to have a great birding holiday. Guided walking tours in all areas can be organised. Wedding and birthday accommodation for large groups throughout the year can be organised using my three villas Dalyanjewel (sleeps 16), Dalyandream (slees 12) and dalyandiamond (sleeps14)
Walking and cycling groups are aware of the amazing possibilities available to ramblers and cyclists in and around Dalyan, Turkey.There are a number of great walks to be done in the local area; from the walk up to Candir and Kaunos over stunning mountains and rock tombs, to the Liquid Amber Forests of Dalyan. The Famous Lycian Way walk of 300+km across the southern coast of Turkey, is a trekking holiday for the hardcore (especially in the summer).
How to get there
The nearest airport is Dalaman which is a 25 minutes drive away. Once in Dalyan car hire is not essential as we are so close to everything you could need. The town itself is quite small and everything is within easy walking distance.
Everything is within walking or cycling distance in Dalyan. This apartments are easy walk to restaurants, bars and cafes and the riverboats that you take to the beach or the ruins of Kaunos with its amphitheatre and ancient Lycian rock tombs, the mud baths, sea fishing and so on. Fethiye and Olu Deniz are 50 minutes drive away. Marmaris is about 75 minutes drive, both of which have ferries to Rhodes.
There are many activities available such as trekking through the mountains, cycling and jeep safaris; sunrise or moon light boat cruises for fishing or turtle watching, tours to various islands or just along the coast. Sailing, sea kayaking & white water rafting and diving & snorkelling in clear waters through caves and an abundance of marine life. Horse riding is also available.
Dalyan town itself is compact stretching only a mile in any direction from the centre and is framed by a glorious backdrop of pine clad mountains in every direction. The flatness of town makes it a perfect place for walking with children or the elderly and it is a delight to cycle around. For more active holidaymakers there are forests and hiking hills all within walking distance. Dalyan is also distinguished by the lack of package tourists though there are still plenty of bars and restaurants to cater for all tastes. There is a market on Saturday’s selling local produce, clothing and tourist items.
The town has a bank, ATMs a post office a number of well stocked supermarkets centred around the town square. Also the Dolmus (bus) area for trips to surrounding attractions and only 50m or so to the riverside to sit by boats or you can take a relaxing walk along the the river or cross the river to Kanos tombs and amphitheatre. The boats can take you to the beach or on moonlight cruises to the lake, crab fishing and turtle feeding. For the more adventurous there are walking tours, scuba diving and microlight flights. There are also hot springs and mud baths at the nearby Koycegiz lake.
