Villa overview - owner's description

Spacious private detached villa set in the outstanding conservation area of Dalyan. Sleeps six in two double and one twin bedrooms. Full air conditioning and free wifi. Private pool & jacuzzi.

Villa Hatira is situated just 5 minutes walk from Dalyan centre and all it bars, restaurants and shops and overlooks a park and the famous rock tombs and mountains beyond.
The villa sleeps six guests in two double and one twin bedrooms all with their own air conditioning and ceiling fans for those who do not like air conditioning, and shower rooms. The double bedrooms each have their own beyond.

Villa Hatira is traditionally open plan with a lounge, dining area and kitchen. There is also a sunken Turkish seating area situated around a stone fireplace. There is also a further cloakroom.
The lounge area has a bookcase full of novels and games for guests use during the realxing days seated around the pool.
The kitchen is fully equipped with dish washer, fridge with freezer compartment, cooker and washing machine.
The entire downstaors benifits form air conditioning for those hot summers evenings.

From the lounge double doors open onto the veranda.
You will find two sets of double doors that lead onto the large veranda where there is further seating for six guests. Beyond the veranda is the stone built BBQ with further seating for eating as well as a cushioned area for relaxing.
The veranda also overlooks the large pool, ideal for working off those wonderful Turkish meals or for just bobbing around whilst having fun.
The garden has been planted with fruit trees, olive trees, banana palms and numerous shrubs all of which bask in the wonderful Turkish sunlight and overlook the famous rock tombs.

Dalyan lies in a conservation area and as such no high rise building is allowed. Dalyan is a truly incredible place and is widely recognised as one of the "last corners of paradise". It is a natural, easy going, real life working town rather than a purpose built tourist resort. Life is even slower here in winter, but life does continue as people have lived and worked here for generations.

Surrounded by pine-clad mountains, cotton fields, fruit orchards and reed beds, this is also a national conservation area with unspoilt natural beauty. Dalyan has justifiably been declared a 'specially protected area' by the Turkish government, so as to preserve the nature in the delta.

The town is set on the Dalyan canal that connects Lake Koycegiz to the sea and runs through the internationally renowned delta surrounded by reed beds that create hidden lagoons and waterways.

The reed beds provide homes for approximately 200 species of birds many of whom are resident or visit the delta on their migration flights, so making this area a naturalist’s delight. Naturalists travel from all over the world to visit the Dalyan Delta.
Dalyan’s Iztuzu beach is approximately 3 miles or 5 km long. It has been voted the “Best Open Space in Europe” by the Times in London and the “Best Beach in Europe” by leading Dutch travel organisations like Poover. It is a safe, family friendly, gently sloping beach perfect for swimming, walking and relaxing.

Iztuzu beach is an established nesting site of the Loggerhead [Caretta Caretta] marine turtles, which have been returning to this beach since the dawn of time to lay their eggs between May and October. As a result the beach is now protected to preserve it for this endangered species and is closed between 20.00 and 08.00 each night during the nesting season. An international effort including a lead role from local resident June Haimhoff (known locally as Kaptan June) and David Bellamy secured this.

There is a turtle rehabilitation sanctuary at the Dolmus (bus) end of the beach. This is run by Dekamer through the Pamukkale university. They take in injured turtles from the area and care for them there until they are fit enough to be released. The sanctuary is open to the public and well worth the visit to see the wonderful work they do and hear from them about the amazing creatures that marine turtles are.

Apart from the ecological importance of the area, Dalyan itself is one of the most attractive towns of the Turkish coastline. Sitting between the wider known resorts of Marmaris and Fethiye, it could not be further apart from them in its pace of life.

While you are here, just go with the local pace and enjoy being on ‘Dalyan time’ and enjoy all that Dalyan has to offer.

We had a wondeful stay at Villa Hatira and Dalyan and did not want to leave on our travels.

The villa was very private and spacious and well equipped with all the facilities of dalyan only 5 minutes away and yet villa Hatira is et in a very private and quiet location.

We will definatly return another year and will recommend the villa to ur friends in Istanbul.

Many thanks to the owners.

A beautiful, spacious Villa in a very quiet area but only minutes from town. The views from the Villa are stunning and the gardens and pool delightful. A truly memorable holiday.

I am not saying any more as I want to keep it a secret!

We have returned to Dalyan many times and are so thankful that we have found villa Hatira. We and our firnds have found it the most wonderful place to stay with all the amenities of Dalyan close by. It is wonderful that the owners have not used bed settee's to cram people in as in some places we have stayed in. The result at villa Hatira is that it is very spacious and private. Thank you to the owneres for making our stay so wonderful. We certainly will be back in the future.

The villa was superb, in fact the best appointed we have ever had. The owners went out of their way to ensure we had everything we wanted. Besutiful pool and garden, rock tomb views, mountains, what more could we have wanted - more weeks !

Private Owner From Salisbury, United Kingdom Member since May 2006

Rob and I have been returning to Dalyan for the past 20 years. We decided to have villa Hatira built six years ago and have had a very successful rental business ever since with many happy returning customers and friends. Our latest project is a renovation of a village house in the hills outside Dalyan above the beach. this has now been completed and available for rent. This year we have formed our company, Turkish Villa Holidays, and are now marketing villas for other villa owners.
