About Christopher Welton

We are a busy professional couple who live in a small village near Cambridge. We have a grown up son and daughter and we all visit the villa as often as we can. We have enjoyed welcoming family,friends and visitors to our home over the past few years and are delighted that they find the villa as relaxing as we do.

Christopher Welton purchased this villa in 2005

Why Christopher Welton chose Ortaca

We love the Turkish style of the villa with its Mugla architecture on the verandah and above all its peaceful location in a large garden with magnificent views of the mountains. We particularly enjoy swimming in the large pool, relaxing with a book in the garden and watching the stars in the evenings on a clear night. It is lovely watching the swallows dip over the pool for a drink and storks can be seen overhead early in the season. The pool is in the sun all day and in the evenings there are beautiful sunsets.You can choose to sit in the sun or shade at the villa and the hammock is very popular!

What makes this villa unique

Villa Frank has the best of both worlds being in a rural spot within easy walking distance of Dalyan along a flat , paved road. The bus to the beach can be accessed at the bottom of the road or you can go by boat from the riverside in Dalyan. A car is not essential as the villa is only 1 km from Dalyan. Taxis are freely available and are not expensive.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Everything was fantastic and we all agreed that it was the best holiday that we had ever had (JD July 2008).

What an amazing place - we absolutely loved every second! (CR Christmas 2008).

Had a lovely fortnight, the villa is ideally located, please may I book the same two weeks for next year? (MF August 2009)

Great facilities in beautiful location

  • 5 of 5

As a family of 5 (children aged 4, 2 and 8 months) we had a lot of requirements from a holiday home. Villa Frank was able to provide everything that we needed for a relaxing and enjoyable holiday.

We enjoyed the views surrounding us on a daily basis while with only a 15 minute walk could also enjoy the offerings of the town. Even with small children the walk (there and back) was very manageable- sometimes twice a day.

When not sampling the local cuisine in town we stayed in for meals (bought at the convenient local supermarkets) as everything is available in the kitchen. We were also able to prepare the baby’s milk in the microwave and save time on the washing up with the use of the dishwasher.

The washing machine was a must with the children and once a quick wash was done it was all dry in half an hour on the line.

Aside from all the functional attributes of the villa it has much to offer in the way of entertainment and relaxation alike. As adults my husband and I loved relaxing by the pool while taking it in turns to play hide and seek in the beautiful garden, swim in the crystal clear pool and sit together while playing games - at the multiple table options!

For those moments that one can’t be manning the pool there is a DVD player available.

The girls loved taking the boat down the river to the beach and visiting any of the wonderful family friendly restaurants. The play area in the town centre was part of our daily routine - with a cafe in full view for us parents to enjoy a beverage or two.

We had no idea how a foreign holiday with three small children was going to transpire, however we couldn’t have asked for more. We all had a super time and have made some fantastic memories that we will talk about for years to come.

Perfect family holiday in a lovely setting!

  • 5 of 5

Villa Frank is a lovely, well equipped villa with beautiful views from the well maintained garden. The pool is great. We spent several days simply relaxing at the villa. This has been our 2nd visit.

The owners have been helpful and responsive and have provided a folder with very useful information about the villa and what Dalyan has to offer.

We would recommend hiring bicycles (if you haven't hired a car) to make getting around easier although it's not essential. It is about a 15 - 20 min walk into Dalyan main centre from the Villa. There is a great bakery on the edge of the main centre (recommended in the folder) and a huge range of wonderful restaurants and bars. We tried many of the recommended restaurants and were delighted with all of them. Our particular treat was the Sini Restaurant which has great customer service, a wonderful atmosphere & great Turkish food. It was quite pricey though! All restaurants had options for fussy children too & everyone is very welcoming to the children.

There are lots of options for day trips out. Travelling by boat to the beautiful Iztuzu beach and other locations is a very pleasant experience.

We will definitely be returning to Villa Frank in future years!

Our perfect retreat.

  • 5 of 5

We have just returned from our third stay at Villa Frank. We have stayed at several other villas in Dalyan, some bigger, some a little nearer to the town but Villa Frank is our favourite and always our first choice. The only reason we wouldn't stay there is if our dates are already taken. The minute we arrive we feel at home, comfortable and relaxed. There is everything you could need for your holiday. The garden and views are beautiful. The pool is wonderful. Plenty of outside seating and dining choice. We love the location....goats in the field next door and pomegranate orchard at the back of the garden. There is now the addition of a large en-suite bathroom which is really useful.We intend to keep returning for as long as we can.

Lovely villa and gardens. Large pool in back garde

  • 5 of 5

A lovely villa. The gardens are gorgeous, one side a field of goats and to the back pomegranate fields. Large pool at the back so very private. Great location, we hired bikes very cheaply just to get around locally without a car. Dalyan is a fantastic place, great food, views and very friendly people. We really enjoyed the jeep safari and boat trips, kids especially as they could jump off the roof of the boat into the lake/sea. The jeep safari was fantastic fun - big water fight with fab views and a beautiful place for lunch. We visiting the Dalyan Animal Rescue Centre twice and helped them walk the dogs there - a wonderful place, fab volunteers and such friendly dogs. The turtle hospital is a must too. We really hope to return. Thank you for such a wonderful holiday.

Amazing, relaxing villa

  • 5 of 5

We have been staying in this villa for the last 6 years and again this year.

This villa is so relaxing, beautiful setting, extremely clean, has everything you could possibly want on your holiday.

The owner of the villa is very easy to contact and immediate reply to any questions.

The villa is about 20 mins stroll into Dalyan and a couple of minutes to the bus stop for the beach, which is only accessible via a bus or boat.

The swimming pool is fantastic, you would not believe what awaits you behind the little arched gate into the property. You will not be disappointed, hence the fact we go back year after year.

Car: not necessary


The nearest beach is Iztuzu, which was recently deemed to be one of the top ten beaches. It is both clean and safe and is in a beautiful location 30 mins drive from the villa or a relaxing 50 minute boat trip from Dalyan. Iztuzu is the breeding ground of the Giant Loggerhead Turtle so the beach is closed at dusk, but there are many interesting bars and places to eat along the road on the way back.


Dalaman airport is only 30 minutes drive away and we can give you information about reliable transfers between Dalyan and the airport and car hire. Once you have arrived at the villa a car is not essential unless you wish to explore the local countryside, however there are efficient and cheap Dolmus (minibus) services operating from Dalyan to the surrounding towns and Iztuzu beach.


Dalyan is a short distance from the villa. You can also drive to the larger town of Ortaca in about 20 minutes. Dalaman can be reached in 30 minutes and the pretty 'nautical' village of Gocek in about 45 minutes. Further afield Koycegiz will take about an hour and the municipal capital of Mugla about an hour and a half.

Further Details:

Please do contact us for any further details you may require. There is a book giving details of local bars and restaurants in the villa which also lists some other useful information about the local area. For those looking for adventurous activities the following can be arranged locally - jeep safari and white water rafting. Other activities available include: mud baths; massage; Turkish baths and numerous boat trips. For those interested in archaeology Caunos, Tlos and Ephesus (4 hrs drive) are a must.
