Lovely private villa with beautiful gardens
A lovely well kept villa, quiet but just a short walk to the town. Very comfortable, everything worked! We were 5 friends and stayed for 1 week, which we thoroughly enjoyed. A wonderful garden with lots of sun and shade, which was very well looked after, as was the villa itself which was very clean. We particularly enjoyed the 2 seating areas on the wrap around balcony, especially as it was very hot when we visited and needed a shady place to relax. The views were amazing looking over the river to the mountains. We have stayed in many villas over the years and Villa Mirela is one of the best. It ticked all our boxes. We will hopefully be booking it again for next year as we do love Dalyan, it's so friendly. Finally I would like to commend Sonuc from King Emlak, the villa agents, he was very helpful and made the whole booking process very easy and thank you to the owners for letting us enjoy your beautiful home.
Special interest holidays:
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. We can organise guided walking tours through areas. We manage perfect accommodation for large groups throughout the year, that are great for comfortable relaxation when not out in the wilderness.
Walking groups taking international excursions are aware of the amazing possibilities available to walkers and ramblers 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 Lykian Way walk of 300+km across the southern coast of Turkey, is a trekking holiday for the hardcore (especially in the summer).
Dalyan is best known for its lush greenery, the winding river and a beach which is not just a natural wonder but also won The Times Best Open Space Award in 2010. 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 amongst the dunes to escape to.
The nearest airport is Dalaman which is a 20 minutes drive away. Once in Dalyan car hire is not essential, we are very central to town and town itself is small and everything in easy walking distance.
Everything is within walking or cycling distance in Dalyan. This villa is only a 5 minute walk to the nearest supermarket, and it is the same distance to local restaurants, bars and cafes and the river. Fethiye and Olu Deniz are 50 minutes drive away. Marmaris is about 75 minutes drive. Both of those towns also have ferries to Rhodes.
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 make it a perfect place for walking with children and the elderly and 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. If you can’t find the items you want in the shops there is a sweet local market on Saturdays.
