Villa with 3 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms and shared pool in Gulpinar area, Turkey
Booking cost: £0.00
From £392 per week
Duplex villa,sleeps either up to 6 adults and 1 child or 4 adults and 3 children.Shared swimming pool and gardens. Fully air conditioned..Dalyan town center-250 metres.Wi-Fi now available.(Top up)
We visited Dalyan for the first time last year and immediately fell in love with the place.We made the decision then that we wanted to buy a villa there.We returned two months later and bought this villa as we loved the design,location and the general ambience of the complex.
The villa is on a small gravel road behind the village,some 1-2 minutes to the shops. A new small supermarket is about 150 meters back on the main road. Many villas advertise as being 5 minutes from the town - beware this is often by car - we are a 5 minute walk into town - this makes a huge difference to young children, the elderly or unfit as temperatures can be very high in peak season.
It is a private plot with 8 villas sharing the pool - some villas house permanent residents so for this reason we will not accept bookings from single/young groups.
Dalyan is a conservation area where the turtles are protected. The locals are incredibly proud of this and have found ways of allowing toursim into the area without destroying the wildlife. There is also a Stork's nest in front of the villa complex,this year there have been 4 young born and all have survived!The town never seems overcrowded and the Turkish folk just carry on their everyday lives. However the service you will receive is second to none. We are really made to feel welcome in their town.
The villa is approx 5-6 minutes walk from the riverside from which boats run trips to the beach, mudbaths, the lake and various other activities. Along the front are restuarants and bars where you can enjoy a meal or drink while overlooking the amazing rock tombs. A short boat ride can take you to Caunos ancient ruins. Shops line the streets of Dalyan where you can purchase everthing from groceries to belly dancing gear! Saturday market day (which takes up most of the town) is where you can haggle yourself some amazing bargains.
For the more adventurous there are trips going white water rafting, horseriding, treking and scuba diving. You are usually picked up from your front door for these trips and the costs are a lot cheaper than what you would pay with UK tour operators.Prices given outside travel agents and the boats are usually up for negotiation,and they will sometimes offer a discount if you book more than 1 trip with them.
Please note the pool is closed from October 1st until 30th April,it would be possible to keep it open in early October,please request this before booking as we have to make arrangements for this.
Please note this villa now has wi-fi available on a top up basis current cost is 40TL for 4 gb of memory,or 90TL for 15gb,please ask for details. .Most bars and restaurants have Wi-Fi and they will be happy to give you the code.
You dont need a car in Dalyan, the villa is within a couple of minutes of shopping,restaurants,bars,supermarkets.If you want to explore the area further(it is well worth doing believe me!)car hire is available in Dalyan at fairly low prices.
The local bus sevice is fantastic (dolmus). You can hop on and off wherever you like very cheaply
If you want to get around independantly, car hire is very cheap locally.
Hire a moped or scooter.
The local boat corporation provides a lovely way to go on various trips and gets you to the beach as well,current cost is 10TL return.There are many travel agents around town offering trips,always ask for a discount as they will usually offer you one,particularly if you book more than 1 trip with them.

HAD A WONDERFUL HOLIDAY.THE VILLA WAS WELL EQUIPPED EVERYTHING YOU COULD POSSIBLE NEED WAS PROVIDED. IT WAS LARGE AND CLEAN PLENTY OF ROOM FOR OUR PARTY OF FIVE ADULTS.IT WAS ONLY A FEW MINUTES WALK TO THE CENTER BUT WAS SET IN A RELAXING AREA IN A SMALL FRIENDLY COMPLEX.DALYAN IS A LOVELY PLACE WENT ON A FEW BOAT TRIPS.COMMUNICATION WITH THE OWNER WAS EXCELLENT AS WAS THE TRANSFERS TO AND FROM THE AIRPORT.THE WEATHER WAS VERY HOT AT 40+ SO THE AIR CON WAS A BLESSING.WE WILL DEFINATLEY BE BACK HOPEFULLY TO VILLA LYKIA.
Many thanks to Tina for letting us use the villa. Beautiful place, ideal location and everything you could possibly need is in the villa. It is close to everywhere and the management company provided an excellent service including the airport transfer. We will be returning to Dalyan next year and hopefully using the same villa.
This was our first holiday abroad and we could not have wished for a better place. The transfer from the airport was first class and we quickly realised how well located the villa was.
We were so impressed with the villa itself - it was large, modern and spotlessly clean.
Every thing you could possibly need was provided and it really was a home from home.(Actually I wish my home was this nice!).
The pool area was beautiful and we were often the only ones there - the neighbours were friendly and everyone seems respectful of each others privacy.
The location was fantastic - a minutes walk to shops, dolmus buses and the taxi boats. The area itself is clean and the people lovely, so friendly.
We could travel to anywhere from the town centre very cheaply, as well as staying in the town itself with plenty to do. The trips are very reasonable and good value. We visited the mud baths, turtle beach ,neighbouring towns and the water park as well as different places to eat , went to feed the turtles and travelled on jeep safaris. Nearby is a great little sauna/ massage place which was cheap as chips.
My oldest Daughter enjoyed it (15) as well as my youngest (10), great for all ages.
We felt really lucky to have found such a gem and we cant fault the owners or the company who maintians the property. We found the villa excellent value for money as well as the shops and places to eat. You must go on the LEYLEY BUS for the ride ( and of course the food!)
If you are lucky enough to go, please say hello to Lucky the very friendly villa complex dog for us !
Another wonderful trip to Dalyan, and a very pleasant stay at Villa Lykia.
Weve been to Dalyan many times, and this was our second time at Villa Lykia, felt very much like home from home!
Its a great, fun place to stay, perfect for our family of four, with a pool just outside.
The bikes came in handy again, and its jut a couple of minutes to the centre of town, and our favourite (cheap!) restaurants in the marketplace.
Prices in Turkey have held pretty much since last year, though the better exchange rate was handy - with almost 2.5 lira to the pound making it even better value for money.
We will definitely be back!!!
A wonderful holiday in a wonderful place. Dalyan is always a delight, and made even better by a pleasant stay at Villa Lykia.
With the pool right outside the back door, was a wonderful way to spend hot lazy days in the sun.
Our children loved the Playstation, which came in handy when the temperature hit 40C+ in the afternoons.
The villa is two minutes walk from the centre of Dalyan, in a quite spot in the back roads from the marketplace.
Perfect for families and anyone seeking a quiet relaxing spot. We made some good friends amongst others who live or were staying in the small complex, which made it all the more homely.
And with three bikes we went exploring every day, with our six year old daughter perched on the rack of my bike. Totally un-PC, very Turkish!
We will be back!
