Villa in Dalyan, Aegean Region, Turkey - Ideal Location, Only 5 Mins Level Walk into Dalyan
About Vivien James
We started holidaying in Dalyan in 1992 and have never looked back. Our first property, villa Rahat, was purchased in 2000 along with the land that villa Hatira is built on. In 2003 we purchased Keci Evi which then was a local house with no facilities. The owners wanted to move into Dalyan so were happy to sell. Restoration started late in 2009 once all the permissions were obtained. We now own another beautiful home, one which we will eventually retire to. We hope all our guests will enjoy this wonderful place. This year we have now formed a company called Turkish Villa Holidays Ltd and are very excited about this and have started managing villas for owners other than ourselves hence Villa Yaz and Villa Yasemin. We still believe strongly in that personal touch.
Vivien James purchased this Villa in 2004
Why Vivien James chose Dalyan City Center
The land on which we built villa Hatira was in an ideal position, on the edge of Dalyan and yet only five minutes walk to the main street of Dalyan with all the shops, bars and restaurants. The promise of a park being built to the front of villa Hatira also appealed, better a park than villas we thought. No car is needed as everything is within walking distance of villa Hatira whether it's a boat trip out to sea or up to the lake, or a visit to the ancient city of Caunos located across the river from Dalyan and reached by rowing boat and a short walk.

Iztuzu beach or Turtle beach is renowned as a nesting site of the Loggerhead Turtle and as such the beach is closed between 20.00 and 08.00 There is also no building allowed on the beach apart from a small cafe and toilets. Seating is also restricted to hired sun beds. During the day the river taxis will take you to the beach through the reed beds. This takes about 20 minutes. Or you can use the dolmus which will take you to the other end of the beach. This journey takes about 15 minutes.
Dalaman is the local airport which is 25 minutes transfer time to Dalyan and villa Hatira.
We can arrange a transfer for our guests. this is then paid locally at our agents office in Dalyan.
Dalyan's attractions are all within walking distance of villa Hatira. Or you may prefer to use the local boats or taxis to get to areas outside Dalyan. The ruined city of Caunos can be reached first by rowing boat and then by a wonderful 20 minute walk which takes you under the famous Lycian rock tombs.
