Villa overview - owner's description

A perfect holiday "home from home" in the much sought after Maras district of Dalyan

Nestling in the quiet and much sought after Maras district of Dalyan and enjoying unrivalled views towards Caunos mountain, Villa Orodelea has everything that guests need to enjoy a relaxing "home from home" holiday in the sun.

Featuring three bedrooms on the first floor, each with air conditioning (master double with ensuite, second double and a twin) and a second air conditioned sitting room on the ground floor that easily converts into an additional bedroom) Villa Orodelea was individually designed to accommodate in comfort a large family group, two families sharing or guests with mobility problems. Additionally, there are two z-beds available that are perfect for children (up to the age of 12) who may want to stay in their parents' bedroom during their holiday.

To cater for everyone's needs, in addition to the ensuite facilities there are two further shower rooms and wc's, one upstairs and one downstairs.

The main living room is extremely spacious and comfortably accommodates eight people - as does the dining area - and both open out onto a wide external veranda with plenty of shaded areas for use if there is a need to escape from the sun!

The large kitchen is fully fitted with an oven, hob, dishwasher, fridge/freezer and a watercooler, and is spacious enough to accommodate a kitchen table and chairs for less formal eating. There is also a high chair available for use by guests with very young children.

Finally, a separate laundry area with a washing machine, iron and ironing board and small hoover ensures that Villa Orodelea has everything that guests need to enjoy a relaxing "home from home" holiday in the sun.

Externally, the private 500sq metre plot boasts a large swimming pool and linked toddler pool (both carefully positioned to enjoy full sunshine all day), a lawned garden and a generous supply of comfortable garden furniture, an external shower and a stone-built BBQ.

"Orodelea" means "mountain view" and the villa is very aptly named since the spectacular outlook from the front garden and balconies towards Caunos Mountain - a famous Dalyan landmark - is unparalleled elsewhere in the town. Additionally, the villa features views of Dalyan's trademark Lycian rock tombs, especially at night when their stunning illumination dominates the whole town.

Guests staying at Villa Orodelea are able to visit the restaurant and bar at the nearby Villa Kiydan apartments - a small and friendly development owned and run by a local Dalyan family - and to access the Kiydan's private jetty less than 100 metres away, where they can relax in the sun and watch Dalyan's many boats travelling up and down the river.

Whilst the number of visitors to this area of Turkey has increased in recent years, Dalyan essentially has remained a small fishing town throughout. Strict planning regulations have been in place for some time that have restricted all buildings to no more than two storeys high, meaning that there are no high rise buildings or hotels anywhere to be seen.

Dalyan has lots of restaurants, shops and bars, together with a good selection of supermarkets, all within 10-15 minutes walking distance from Villa Orodelea. Everyone who visits remarks on how friendly and welcoming the local people are - which probably explains why so many holiday makers return there on a regular basis.

The town is set on a river that leads upstream to a beautiful freshwater lake (Lake Koycegis), where you can visit the local mudbaths and hot springs, and downstream via a reed-filled delta to the sea and the famous Turtle Beach conservation area - home of the loggerhead (Caretta Caretta) turtle.

Just up the river from Caunos mountain with its historic city ruins and amphitheatre are the ancient Lycian rock tombs carved into the mountain side, Dalyan's most famous feature.

Turtle Beach can be accessed either by boat downstream through the river delta or by taking a Dolmus public minibus from the town centre on a wonderfully scenic route that passes alongside a lake and through mountains on its way around the bay.

And if you want to visit Caunos, a small group of enterprising elderly ladies in the town centre offer river crossings by rowing boat for a fairly nominal fee!

Finally, as an alternative to the delightful 10 - 15 minute walk into Dalyan, the Villa has 4 bicycles complete with shopping baskets for our guests to use free of charge, offering an easy and refreshing 5 minute cycle ride right into the centre of town and the market square.

Family from Norwich, United Kingdom Aug 2016

We stayed in this villa for three weeks in August and it offered everything we could have wanted, and more.
We have always stayed in the Gulpinar area of Dalyan so this was the first time at the other end - and Villa Orodelea occupies the most fantastic position in the village: quiet, yet just a 15 minute stroll into the main part of the town (there are plenty of fantastic little places to eat and drink hidden away just a couple of minutes away, including the fabulous Melek Anne which does a particularly amazing breakfast).
Just a stone’s throw from the river, the villa has fantastic views of Caunos and the rock tombs which are lit up at night and offer a beautiful view from the balconies.
The villa itself is, in our opinion, the best in town; it is not overlooked at all and is set in lovely, established garden with the pool out the front of the house, offering all-day sun, but plenty of shady areas – our particular favourite spot was under the palm trees.
We were a family of five, but there is certainly enough space for at least eight (if not more), with plenty of sun loungers and dining chairs. There is a second lounge/spare bedroom on the ground floor, which we didn’t use, but would more options to a bigger party.
The main open-plan lounge and dining room is fabulous and airy and the kitchen has everything you could need, including full-size fridge and freezer, dishwasher, full oven and water cooler – for 6tl, large water bottles can be delivered from town. A separate utility area has washing machine, pegs etc, and there’s plenty of DVDs, books and games, flippers, goggles, inflatables.
Bedrooms are huge with large balconies and plenty of storage space – we also took advantage of the camp-bed for our then three-year-old to sleep in our room. Bathrooms, again, everything you could need – power showers and lots of hot water.
The villa was spotlessly clean and a lovely lady came and changed sheets and towels each week. There is also a plentiful supply of pool towels, saving on luggage space.
We took advantage of the bikes (and hired another with a child seat) enabling us to nip back and forth to the town in a few minutes – we also took them across to the other side for a trip to the ruins, courtesy of the rowing boat people.
Communication with Paul was fantastic throughout the booking process, arrival and during our stay – any queries are answered very quickly.
We had already decided before the end of our holiday that we would not want to stay anywhere else – so here’s looking forward to next year.


Couple from Harrow Middlesex, United Kingdom Sep 2015

This is an exceptionally bright and airy spacious villa with the advantage of having a totally separate fully equipped kitchen, having good size bedrooms with balconies all with air con and 3 large showers with impressive water pressure!
Situated in a picturesque and quiet area but with all amenities close by ideal for a relaxing holiday!
It is set in a very large garden with swimming pool surrounded by many areas for sunbathing or eating in the shade.
We would highly recommend this villa for couples and families alike and we will certainly be returning in the near future.

Reply from Paul

We were very sorry to read these comments as they are such a marked contrast to all of our other reviews. We sought to address those issues within our control as soon as we were made aware of them but unfortunately the renters only had two days of their two week stay remaining at that point. The review is particularly disappointing as we had made special arrangements for them to have an extra night's accommodation provided free of charge at the apartments next door when we discovered that they were arriving in the early hours of Sunday morning on a Saturday evening flight, even though they had only booked the villa from the Sunday night.

Family from Gateshead, United Kingdom Jul 2015

This villa was everything we could have needed; spacious, clean, quiet (5 minutes to town). Had a great time and with no concerns with the villa, it made our stay even more relaxing. Would definitely use this villa again.

Family from Birmingham, United Kingdom Sep 2014

Pau and Rosel,
I want to thank you for all your communications throughout our booking process. The Villa was everything we hoped it would be!! We are considering booking it next year. It was in a perfect location, quite, but only minutes from the main strip,.It is sooo spacious there were only four of us staying there, but it felt so roomy. Onur from Villa Kiydan was really helpful with all our questions.
Your neighbour next door was also helpful and friendly. I would highly recommend your Villa to family and friends anytime
Thanks again Paul and Rose for a perfect holiday x

Family from Hull, United Kingdom Aug 2014

An absolutely perfect holiday in a perfect resort in a perfect villa.

We went as a family of four plus grandparents in August 2014 and wanted for nothing all week during our stay. The villa is just right for a family or couple of families and is in a great location just a short walk from the town centre and just across the road from a quiet apartment complex, the owner of which is a helpful, friendly point of contact during your stay.

Its a modern, clean, place to stay with lovely decor and all the facilities you could ever need from a home from home.

The couple who own the villa are professional, yet very, very friendly, and we had good contact and communication from and with them before and after our stay so that everything went silky smooth from start to finish.

Cannot recommend Villa Orodelea in Dalyan enough - We got back home this weekend just gone and are already making plans for a return visit next year!

Gareth from Worcester Having visited Dalyan on an excursion a few years ago, we were looking forward to spending a few weeks here this year. The villa was more than we could have wished for. Built to a very high standard, marble floors, air conditioned rooms, manicured gardens and a wonderful pool surrounded by beautiful scenery. The town is a short walk away but far enough to enjoy the peace and quiet of the river delta. We had some great days just relaxing at the villa and had the exclusive use of the neighbours yacht for a never to be forgotten day discovering the coves, caves and sea turtles of Dalyan. All in all a holiday paradise made perfect by this great spacious villa. We will definitely be back.

We have just returned from a wonderful time at Villa Orodelea. The pool was lovely and the views of the rock tombs and Caunos mountain from the garden were spectacular. Onurs mother (from the family-owned Villa Kiydan apartments just across the road) made us a super Turkish meal and wherever we went the Turkish people were so friendly. VIlla Orodelea was very comfortable and spacious and had absolutely everything that we needed and more. The trip to the beach both by bus and boat was excellent and the sea so warm - even in October! All in all a truly lovely holiday - and definitely a Villa to return to.

Just returned from a fabulous 2 week holiday at villa Orodelea. There was 6 adults and we all had a fantastic stay in a truely idilc spot in Dalyan with great views of the tombs. It was a stroll to the shops (I went to the bakers for fresh bread each morning). The airconditioning was a welcome commodity in the heat as was the watercooler to keep you hydrated. So if you are after a quiet and relaxing holiday with excellent accomodation then this is the place to stay. I would definately recommend the boat trip to the mudbaths and a must is the ride across the river by the ladies of dalyan in their little rowing boat... this takes you to the road to the ancient town were I saw tortoises happily roaming around the ruins... Will definitely return....

We really enjoyed our time at the Villa. We were really impressed by the scale of the property. The short transfer from the airport also helps. The Villa has all the modern amenities one would expect from a luxury Villa. The Villa is large and 5 of us rattled around it very happily for 2 weeks without feeling on top of each other. The location is excellent and the staff in the apartments opposite are really helpful. A short walk into the town and great views over the stunning tombs near the river make this a great location. We felt that we could have easily invited another family to share the villa with us.
