We had a great fortnight at Mems villa, which is exactly as described. It is a semi detached villa but the adjacent property was vacant during our stay which meant we had the pool area to ourselves. The pool is one of the best I have experienced, a good size, fabulous temperature a crystal clear. There is plenty of space around the pool with good shaded areas so wouldn't have been an issue if next door had been occupied. The villa itself is spotlessly clean with 3 good sized, air conditioned bedrooms and 2 bathrooms, both lovely wet rooms with powerful showers with easily regulated temperature. The villa is located close to Mems own restaurant which serves delicious food from a varied menu. There are other restaurants close by on the walk in to the centre of Dalyan which is a 7 minute stroll, the river is slightly closer, all together a perfect location. Beware Dalyan has lots of private villas spread over a wide area and some are a long distance from the centre of town!
Mehmet is an attentive host and is available to resolve any issues you may have. (We didn't have any!).
Dalyan itself is a great holiday location. In August if is extremely hot but the breeze that builds up from around 11.30am is refreshing. A car is not required unless you wish to venture further, but to be honest there isn't a lot in the local area to visit. Most of the excursions offered by the tourist shops are to the Fethiye area which is a good 60 minute drive away and further to places like Saklikent and OluDeniz. A boat trip along the river and up to the Lake is essential to marvel at the beautiful scenery and enjoy a relaxing day. Dalyan is a lovely holiday destination and Mems villa a perfect base. Having been to Turkeh many times, the reduction in tourists this year was noticeable undoubtedly due to the recent political situation. Other than this there is no sign that anything has changed or any reason to be concerned. Turkey has always felt and continues to feel a safe place and personal security is no different than it is in the UK. Please do not be put off. The country is rugged and beautiful and the locals very friendly. The reduction in tourists will undoubtedly affect their livelihood which is a real shame and I hope for their sake that it picks up again soon.
