Dalyan is a small fishing town on the south-western Mediterranean coast of Turkey. Just twenty five minutes from the Dalaman International Airport. Set in the centre of a broad delta whose natural beauty remains with unspoilt natural beauties. Dalyan is established in an environmentally protected area. This is one of the few surviving places of true paradise, an area of natural beauty and historical interset, as it's pretty close to ancient city of Caunos, so many history lovers from Marmaris, Fethiye and Sarıgerme take a day trip (a guided coach excursion) and visit the ruins of Caunos ancient city for the day, the nearby natural Mud-Baths and then take the boat to Turtle Beach for a nice swim and sunbathing.
In 2008, İztuzu Beach (Turtle Beach) was proclaimed the winner in the category for Best Open Space in Europe by The Times, because of the eco-friendly exploitation of the beach. In 2011 Dalyan and İztuzu Beach were proclaimed Best Beach Destination of Europe by Dutch Holiday Assessment website Zoover.
Dalyan being descricbed as "One of the last corners of paradise" and being surrounded by pine-clad hills, pomegrenade fields, orange and tangerine grooves and bulrushes, it really is a beautiful place.
Dalyan is a highly fertile and very productive agricultural town. Cotton fields used to be all over the place and were grown intensively in the past, but it has now largely been replaced by pomegranate fields. In Dalyan and around Köyceğiz town there's many other fruits (citrus fruits) and all types of vegetables are grown, which are all on display for sale in the Fresh Fruit and Vegetale Market on Saturdays, the day when villagers come from miles around to sell their products till the sunset. It's so cheap to shop here.
A GREAT FAMILY HOLIDAY IN AGEAN TURKEY
The unspoilt Mediterranean village of Dalyan will offer you a fantastic family holiday experience. You can simply stay around the pool, swim and sunbathe during the day and then take a nice walk to center for dinner, where you can choose from the first class bars and restaurants, there's plenty of nice bars and restaurants to choose from. And you could also enjoy few cold drinks and good company in the small and friendly bars on the same street after dinner.
RIVER BOAT JOURNEY IN DALYAN RIVER
Life in Dalyan revolves around the Dalyan River which flows past the town. The river boats that ply up and down the river, navigating the maze of tall reeds, are the preferred means of transport to all the local sites. You'll enjoy the amazing river boat journey, as you take one of the small river boats to İztuzu Beach, (Turtle Beach) through Dalyan River. Dalyan and Turtle Beach are registered as a National Park of Turkey and also a wildlife sanctuary by the wildlife protection association of Turkey. Because of this, the small resort of Dalyan hasn't been grown too big, it is still so nice and so friendly place and it has kept its typical Turkish Mediterranean charm and appeal.
LOGGERHEAD MARINE TURTLES - CARETTA CARETTAS
The beach in Dalyan is well known for the Caretta Carettas (Loggerhead turtles), an endangered species of marine turtles that has existed for about 45 million years. International wildlife protection organizations and Turkish Society For The Protection of Wildlife (DHKD) monitor and protect the marine turtles' nesting grounds in Mediterranean Turkey. Dalyan İztuzu Beach is the second largest turtle nesting ground in Mediterranean coasts.
Caunos was an important port city, the history of which is supposed to date back 10th century BC. Because of the formation of İztuzu Beach and the silting of the former Dalyan Bay from approx. 200 BC onwards, Caunos is now located about 8 kms away from the coast. The city had two ports, the southern port at the southeast of Small Castle and the inner port at its northwest, the present Lake of the Leeches. The southern port was used from the foundation of the city till roughly the end of the Hellenistic era, after which it became inaccessible due to its drying out. The inner or trade port could be closed by chains. The latter was used till the late days of Caunos, but due to the silting of the delta and the ports, Caunos had by then long lost its important function as a trading port. After Caria had been influenced badly by the serious malaria epidemic of the 15th century AD, Caunos was completely abandoned.

9 out of 9 people recommend staying here
Villa Bati Gul is a lovely private villa set in beautiful mature gardens and although it had neighbours the area was very quiet both during the day and night. Whilst surrounded on 3 sides there is only one area of the outdoors that is slightly overlooked, making it feel very private and secure.
The villa itself was comfortable and had all the usual facilities, my slight concern would be the ability to actually fit 12 people in the villa. Technically you can sleep 12 (the sofas act as double beds) though I suspect it would be rather crowded for space, however if you were using the villa as a base then this could work. With regards to bathroom facilities for full occupancy I think you would struggle.
Whilst there are two toilets, one downstairs & one upstairs, there is only one working shower (the upstairs one was disconnected) this meant that even as a family of 3 (one being my elderly mother) we had to take it in turns to shower downstairs and then head back upstairs to dress. We got around it but with more occupants it would be a bit of a task.
Dalyan and the surrounding area is beautiful and as the advert states it is a short 10 -15 mins walk from the villa into the centre of Dalyan, where you will find a good choice of bars, restaurants and shops, along with the beautiful river. There are several shops closer to the villa where you can buy basic provisions, along with some restaurants if you don't fancy the walk into town.
We didn't venture into town very often, as we had a small child in our party, however on the occasions that we did I was surprised to also find the town peaceful and relaxing in an evening. No loud clubs, bars blasting out music - we we certainly didn't come across any.
All in all I was very impressed with the villa, from the communication with the owner to the transfers, etc Would definitely consider returning. :-)
A very enjoyable holiday was had by all :-)
Our holiday from start to end was fantastic villa was great pool was sublime mark the owner very helpful ibo the manager was a godsend nothing was to much trouble would recommend this villa to anyone cheers james and 8 other happy members of our family
My Family included my mother who is 84 down to my grandson at 3 years old .Mark the owner was very helpful and was on call if needed he arranged our transfers with Ibo who also was on call if needed .We arrived on in mid April so the weather was a little un predictable but out of 14 days only one was rained off the temperatures were around the mid 20s not bad for April 2014 .The Villa is in a great location just 10 mins from town or if you use the bikes 5 mins at a slow pace, several mini markets within a couple of minutes . The grounds and pool are looked after every day except Sunday to a high standard we had a lot of use from the pool .Right next door we fell in love with Daisy the cow although the chickens were early risers they were grateful of left overs and we were even given eggs by the owner . Inside the Villa was clean and good condition .There were plenty of towels but the villa could do with another shower and probably the sheets could do with renewing . Other than that I would not hesitate to recommend Villa Batigul and Daylan .
A very clean property with a very helpful English owner, Mark, always on the end of the phone if necessary. Good communication before we went. Excellent pool 1.8 m deep throughout except for the stepped exit, cleaned and tested daily. A reliable contact for airport transfers, Ibo, there if you want him for local info, not if you dont, no pressure. A few minor but valid negative points - the pool lights went off the first night and despite the efforts of the owner and electrician they werent fixed during our 2 week stay a shame when it was 25+c in the evening! The upstairs shower in the second bathroom was unusable due to very low water pressure, and Im not fussy. Also the fifth bedroom is in the roof, very low and hot with no air con. We couldnt use it which was disappointing as we specifically booked a 5 bed villa so we didnt have to share.. The owner did advise us of this during a tel call before we left but we had already booked and paid by then. That said, if we wanted a four bed villa, wed book it again without a worry. Back to the positives, there is lots of pool furniture, towels, kitchen equipment and two useful bikes, a 10 minute walk to Dalyan town.
We have stayed in several Dalyan villas and found the Bati Gul very comfortable and clean and within easy reach of the town centre. There is an excellent verandah adjacent to the pool which is perfect for the searing afternoon temperatures. The management team are very friendly and attentive. Only negative is the barbecue is tiny and doesnt look as if it has ever been cleaned.
