DALAMAN AREA

Dalaman is an area of breathtaking natural beauty located between the sea and mountains, with fragrant orange groves, lovely unspoilt beaches and fascinating ancient sites. The ideal base to explore from or just relax in the rural setting.

Dalaman is rapidly becoming an area of destination rather than just a stop over on the way to some other resort town. Over - development and exploitation of the area is stopped by the protection afforded to the rare loggerhead turtles that frequent the river and beach. Ensuring Dalaman develops in harmony with its surrounding environment and retains its natural beauty.

Enjoy your evenings at some wonderful restaurants offering quality meals made from fresh organic products grown locally in Dalaman. Here are a few restaurants, recommended by our guests:

AKKAYA GARDEN RESTAURANT - one of the best restaurants in the Mediterranean Region. There are plenty of places to dine in the garden with secluded seating areas or in a storks nest. The nests are positioned in the trees and can sit 4-8 people. The restaurant is located deep in the valley amongst the pine trees. It is set amongst waterfalls, ponds, wildlife and beautiful trees and flowers. The food is second to none with an excellent selection of both Turkish and European cuisine.

NAR RESTAURANT - attracting locals and tourists alike, Alfresco dining in the town centre. Wonderful Turkish and International cuisine and specialist coffees make this a popular venue.

BOTANIK RESTAURANT- Situated just a few miles from Dalaman this is a great restaurant at any time of the year. In winter it has a homely feel with a large open fire, for dining inside the restaurant. In the summer all meals are served alfresco in the beautiful gardens. Each table is discreetly placed for privacy. The food is scrumptious and offers everything from fish, meat and vegetarian dishes. Included within the price are homemade bread, cheese and local butter to get you started. Your chosen main meal selection, followed by local fruits of the season.

CINAR RESTAURANT- Serving traditional Turkish meals in a relaxed garden setting (in summer) with live music on a Friday evening. In winter the interior is cosy with warmth from the log burner. Fantastic steaks but also vegetarian and fish choices . Also a great place for the traditional Turkish breakfast, at 15 lira per person this is guaranteed to fill you up until dinner time.

BLUE RESTAURANT- Situated just a short car journey from Dalaman, this restaurant sits directly overlooking the marina in Gocek. Although a little pricier than the other restaurants mentioned, it is well worth a visit. If you visit on either a Tuesday or Thursday they offer 2 main meals for the price of one. Serving traditional Turkish food, plus the odd surprise! This is just one of several excellent restaurants overlooking the sea in Gocek. You could also eat at KEBAP HOSPITAL for the novelty value of the name as well as the excellent kebabs and meze.

BEACHES, RELAXATION, ADVENTURE AND HISTORY

SARIGERME BEACH : with 4 miles of golden sand, shallow sea and the island of Babada not too far in the distance, is a great day out for all the family. A short walk along the wooded footpath with its turkeys, chickens and peacocks running free, brings you out onto the exceptionally clean beach. Facilities include food and drink outlets, water sports, showers, toilets, beach chairs, umbrellas and dressing cabins are all available.

SARSALA BEACH : is a lovely family beach set in a small bay with a restaurant, changing rooms, shower and W.C. The beach is 6 miles from Dalaman. There are daily "12 island" boat trips available from the small pier price is 40tl (2010 prices) per person and includes a BBQ lunch.

WHITE-WATER RAFTING : In Dalaman is one of the most exciting holiday experiences and is perfect for active thrill seekers. The Dalaman River is rated as one of the top rafting destinations in the world. Professionals will guide you every step of the way for an unforgettable adventure on the Dalaman waters.

THERME MARIS SPA : You can buy a day pass to use some great facilities including massage, fitness centre, beauty centre (skin care centre, aromatic bathtub, solarium, peeling, hamam, sauna, pressotherapy, starvac, thermo failure), 3 different outdoor pools with thermal natural water, indoor pool, jacuzzi and mud bath. You can see and feed the endangered Loggerhead Turtles. Located immediately behind Dalaman Beach.

IZTUZU BEACH : Visit one of the most beautiful beaches on the Mediterranean coastline. This sand bar that separates the sea from the mouth of the Dalyan Creek is an excellent swimming beach. Situated 30 minutes from Dalaman, Iztuzu Beach has also been preserved, as it is one of the last nesting grounds for the endangered Loggerhead Turtles.

GOCEK : Often referred to as the St.Tropez of Turkey, with its exclusive yachting marina and unspoilt beaches, Gocek has emerged as one of the countries most affluent areas to live in Turkey. Take the 12 Island Boat Excursion great day out for all the family. The market takes place on a Sunday, ideal place to buy leather goods, local crafts don�t forget to haggle!

DALYAN : Only 20 minutes drive to the west from the Villa, you will find Dalyan, a small but exquisite fishing town, which lies next to a meandering river, teaming with wild life. After spending your time browsing the typically diverse Turkish market stalls, why not relax and take a look at the Lycian tombs, carved into the rock face, from the comfort of one of the many romantically set restaurants lining the Dalyan riverside. It only takes you a few minutes from the centre of town to stroll through to the Old Dalyan of gardens and willow trees, to flavour days gone by.

KAYA KOY : Once a thriving Greek village, this town of over one thousand houses, two churches, fourteen chapels, and two schools, was completely deserted in 1923 when the 25,000 Greek inhabitants living there, along with more than a million other Greeks living throughout Turkey were repatriated to Greece through a massive government mandated population exchange between the two countries following the Greek war of independence. Since then, the village of Kayakoy, as it is called in Turkish, or Karmylassos, as it was called in Greek, which had been continually inhabited since at least the 13th century, has stood empty and crumbling, with only the breeze from the mountains and mist from the sea blowing through its empty houses and streets. A wonderful place steeped in history that touches you to the very soul. Nearby is the town of FETHIYE with lots of tourist facilities, a seaside promenade which stretches for miles and a large market each Tuesday. Close by Fethiye are the tourist areas of Oludeniz and Callis Beach. Fethiye is about a 45 minutes drive along the main coast road from Villa Serenity.

KAUNOS : Visit the ancient ruins of Kaunos, situated approximately 40 minutes from the villa or take the rowing boat ferry from Dalyan and enjoy the 20 minute walk to the site. Amongst the ruins of the city, you will find an old theatre, a large rectangular building that was probably a temple, others of uncertain description, a Byzantine church, and very curious rock-hewn tombs. Wild tortoises are often spotted here.

SULTANIYE HOT SPRINGS & MUD BATHS : Situated just before Dalyan Creek joins the lake, you can give yourself a body pack of mud and then wash it all off again in a sulphur pool with temperatures as hot as in the Sultaniye Baths.

TURKISH HAMMAM: Make sure you experience a traditional Turkish bath (hammam) before you leave. There are several locally and each has either mixed sexes, or ladies only at special times. I bet you thought you were clean until you see what comes off after a good exfoliation.

SAKLIKENT GORGE : the ideal place to visit if you are feeling especially hot. The gorge is 18km long and so steep and narrow that the sun does not penetrate, so the water is icy cold. The gorge is approached along a wooden platform but you can then wade and climb waterfalls to explore deeper in to the canyon. At the entrance to the gorge there is a restaurant with a series of wooden platforms suspended above the water. Trout is the speciality.

EPHESUS: why not explore the well preserved marble ruins of the ancient capital of Roman Asia, with its 25,000-seat Great Theatre. One of Turkeys most visited tourist sites; Ephesus was once the home to the Temple of Artemis, one of the Seven Wonders of the World. Situated on the West Coast, Ephesus is a good 3 hour drive from the Villa. We can recommend nearby guest houses if you want to make it an overnight trip.

SIRINCE: is a small town, not far from Ephesus. The maze of cobbled streets is like stepping back in time and can be explored at your leisure. The friendly villagers are happy to sell you herbs gathered from the mountains, local wines and handicrafts. This town has Greek ancestry, what (of course) you don't notice at all. What you do notice, is that this town is famous for its wine production. When walking through the streets of Sirinçe, you see many wine houses where you can taste the many sorts of wine they make here. One warning however: if you're a true judge of wine, you'll probably think wine should be made from grapes. So, don't try the wines of Sirinçe by blind choice. Here they also make wine of cherries, prunes, and all other kinds of fruits and possibly even potatoes. The village is a protected area and contains lots of unique architecture, including 2 churches. (Approx. 3.5 hour drive)

PAMUKKALE:- unusual natural and historical site with the sparkling white castle -like cascades, Pamukkale is one of the most important highlights of Turkey, unique in the world. The site is named in Turkish as "Pamukkale", that means "cotton castle", parallel to the glorious and spectacular view of the site. The dazzling white calcareous castles are formed by limestone-laden thermal springs, creating the unbelievable formation of stalactites, potholes and cataracts. Waters in the terraces are the sediments of the springs with calcium bicarbonate in 33C. Waters, containing mainly calcium salts and carbon-dioxide, run off the plateau's by depositing calcium while carbon-dioxide disappearing. The marvellous landscape of Pamukkale has been created by this gradual formation, leaving a cotton-like image. The water of Pamukkale is famous for its benefits to the eyes and skin; and its curing properties to the ills of asthma, rheumatism, as well. (Approx. 4 hour drive)

Family from Dublin, Ireland Jul 2018

My family and I have just returned from our fantastic stay at Villa Serenity. This was our second time to stay at the villa . The villa is in a nice private part of Dalaman but still close enough to the town . It has a lovely private pool and a big garden which are well maintained. The villa is so clean and comfortable. Mehmet the villa manager is great and was there to welcome us . Dalaman is such a lovely Place . We rented a car and traveled to Dalyan, Goceck and Fethiye which are easy to get to by car from Dalaman. After our stay this time in villa serenity I can honestly say it felt like a home from away from home. Thank you .

Thank you for such a lovely review. Really glad you enjoyed your stay in our home in the sun. We hope to welcome you back again.

Family from Oxford, United Kingdom Aug 2014

We stayed at Villa Serenity for nearly 3 weeks in August with two teenage children. The villa is lovely and very peaceful. It felt like home very quickly and we soon settled in to have a fantastic holiday.

There isnt much to do in Dalaman, so we found the evenings when we wanted to go out that we had to travel to Gocek or Daylan which is about half hour drive away. However we loved the peace and quiet in the day so were happy to do this. There are a small handful of restaurants in Dalaman that will pick you up for free, but not many to chose from. The supermarkets are good and very cheap and the local butchers are very helpful so we stayed in some evenings and just had a bbq.

I think car is essential, well it was for us as we like to feel that we can go out if we need to and it seemed quite hard to get a taxi or delivery without going through Mehmet who manages the property. Mehmet by the way is fantastic and so helpful, I am not sure quite what we would have done without him!

This was our first time in Turkey and we had a brilliant time. I would definitely return to Villa Serenity! Thank you!

Family from Swansea, United Kingdom Aug 2013

We had a fabulous time in the villa, it was a lovely big villa with a very large private garden and so was great value for money. The area was quite quiet and in the original advert it did not say that car hire was essential (previous owners fault with the description ) and so we had the added expense of car hire while we were there, although the use of the bikes in the garage was very helpful for trips to the supermarket. There was also inflatables in the garage for the children to use, which was great because it saved us having to buy them.
The villa was spotlessly clean and the pool and garden area was maintained to a very high standard throughout the stay which was very well noted.
The property manager Mehmet was on hand throughout our stay, to book trips for us and restaurants, he really was a godsend and without him, I think we would have been well and truly stuck.
Overall we had a great time in the villa and would definitely recommend it to a friend.

Very nice villa.
Very clean.
Manger were friendly.
Swimming pool is very private and clean.
Very safe area.
Dalaman is near every thing with one hour trip at most.

You need a rental car for sure.

From Nieuwveen

We had a great stay in Villa Serenity. It was above our expectations and the owners arranged everything very well for their renters. It had everything that you might expect for a relaxed holiday. The villa was spacious, well furnished and the location was lovely and peacefull with beautifull mountain vieuws. If you want a quiet day: stay at home, jump into the swimmingpool and relax in the villa. If you want to see the beautifull area, rent a car for your whole stay and find out the places wich are not been hit by major tourism jet. We had a most enjoyable holiday. Chris & Linda, thank you for a great stay in your villa!

"Having spent 3 weeks at Villa Serenity this year I can honestly say we could not have chosen a better villa. The villa itself and gardens are so beautiful and tranquil its impossible not to relax and enjoy yourselves. It is located perfectly for visiting nearby attractions, such as Fethiye, Dalyan, Gocek.......... You will see the real Turkey, which is absolutely stunning and the people are so warm and friendly. I guarantee you will not be disappointed!" The Cashmores, July 2012

A big thank you for such a great villa. Weve had the best holiday and were sad to say goodby. Our holiday was just as wed hoped and expected it to be. Mehmet was super, our holiday wouldnt have been the same without him. He was great at arranging things and giving us advice. Knowing he was happily available at the end of a phone helped us feel relaxed. We soon felt like Villa Serenity was home. Thank you once again. Caroline, May 2012.

Can we say a big thank you for such a great villa. Weve had just the best holiday and I was sad to say goodbye to our lovely holiday home earlier today. Our holiday was just as wed hoped and expected it to be, so weve come home feeling relaxed and so happy that weve gained such great family holiday memories. George learning to swim and snorkel in the pool and oliver galloping around the garden in nothing but his sun hat! Mehmet was super. Our holiday wouldnt have been the same without him. He was great at arranging things for us and giving us advice. Knowing he was happily available at the end of the phone for us in a country we knew relatively little about and had no understanding of the language helped us feel relaxed and we soon felt like villa serenity and the surrounding area quickly became very familiar - like home.Thank you once again. Im sure well be reminiscing about this holiday until we book up again for our next Turkish trip. Caroline & Family

Fantastic villa in a great location! The pool speaks for itself, but there was so much space aswell, perfect for the kids to play on their own or to find shade whatever the time of day. And no reserved sun beds with one for everybody! We had fresh limes in our drinks, picked from the garden and breakfast on the veranda. The splendid backdro p of the mountains added to a feeling of isolation, but infact the shops and centre of Dalaman were a 5 minutes drive away, a local bakery 3 minutes and the airport 15 mins. We loved Dalaman for being so untouristy, no hassles and authentic turkish food. We found it much cheaper than the tourist areas aswell and to top off the villa was close to the D400 which could have you flying off to Dalyan, Marmaris or Fethiye in no time. The Sharp Family Aug 2011

We stayed at the villa in Oct and the weather was fantastic. When we booked we were not quite sure what to expect, but when we saw the villa it was wonderful and far exceeded our expectations. It was spotless clean, bright, comfortable and had everything we wanted for a perfect holiday. Nice quiet area, yet not too far from facilities. My favourite place...before the children got up, was on the terrace with a cup of coffee looking at the mountains. The children loved the pool, spending most of the 2 week holiday in it. Local beaches are fantastic and the food wonderful...we will be back and its Villa serentity for us every time.

I have visted Villa Serenity twice a year for the last 3 years and have enjoyed it more each time I come. The villa is so peaceful and tranquil that it makes it very difficult to leave. The mountain views are really breathtaking and watching the changing colours over them, especially toward sunset is a sight to behold. Sheila. Lichfield
