Helen and John are a retired professional couple. We have a son and daughter and three grandchildren who all love Villa Sahane and Dalyan. Proudly, we are both from South Yorkshire, but have lived in North East England for the past 43 years. Helen was a nurse, school nurse, district nurse/midwife, audiometrician and health visitor for over 50 years. She became a Justice of the Peace in 2007. Since 2011 she has become involved in charity work in Uganda, Africa, visiting and working with Interplast UK and Kumi Community Hospital twice a year. Her main interests are singing in two regional choirs and the local village church choir. She is also involved in fund raising for several charities .

John was teaching for 40 years, mainly in special education, finally as a headteacher for 21 years in two residential schools for children aged 5 to 18 years with emotional and behavioural difficulties, learning difficulties and autism. After retiring he worked part time until 2011 at two NE universities as a tutor in educational leadership and management. The villa hopefully reflects John's passion for gardening. Other hobbies include beekeeping and watercolour painting.

J E JEFFERSON purchased this villa in 2007

Why J E JEFFERSON chose Lycian & Turquoise Coast

Prior to building this property, we had stayed at close friends' villa further out of town. We fell in love with Dalyan, the culture, flora and fauna, food, weather, the hospitality of the people and totally relaxed environment. We wanted to build a special villa for our family which met all our needs, and we think that we succeeded at all levels. The villa is spacious, cool when it is hot, warm in spring and autumn, private and in easy walking distance of the centre of Dalyan. There are about twelve restaurants between Villa Sahane and the harbour, 400 metres away.

We bought the land for this property in 2006 because of the views of the mountain and the opportunity to design a secluded, private villa which was close to all the restaurants, shops and other amenities in town. With advice from two friends, we were able to build Villa Sahane (trans. "beautiful") which matched all of our specifications.

What makes this villa unique

Villa Sahane is a uniquely designed, traditional Turkish syle dwelling with full modern facilities.There are four well furnished and spacious bedrooms with ensuite facilities, all air conditioned. One of the bedrooms is downstairs, disable friendly and accessible everywhere at ground level. The kitchen is very well equipped and integrated with a spacious dining area and lounge with internet and satellite television. Outside is a large 43 sq metre pool, set in beautiful gardens which have a 2.5 metre mixed hedge around the perimeter for extra privacy. Shade is available through two very large parasols plus a very large awning. There is also a bar and barbecue area which is an extra place for entertaining or relaxing: or snoozing in the cool of the traditional kosk! As dusk approaches, the upstairs balcony is the place to sit and watch the sun set over the mountain which drops down to the river. We have several Turkish family friends who often share our hospitality, and love our villa.


Wonderful! 4.9/5 -

Perfect Villa

  • 5 of 5

This Villa is perfect. Situated in a quiet location yet all shops bars and restaurants in the beautiful town of Dalyan are on your doorstep. Spotlessly clean and well equipped. My family have stayed there three times and will be returning there in 2017. The owner, John, is helpful and friendly handling all aspects of transfer to and from the Villa and any other queries prior to travel. Thoroughly recommended,

M Kavanagh

We have now visited this beautiful villa on seven occasions, and it feels like ' home from home ', with everything that you could wish for a fabulous holiday, with additional luxuries, the weather and the lovely resort of Dalyan.

The villa is situated in a perfect, quiet location but close to Dalyan centre. Early this season, it was decorated inside and outside, so the whole place is sparkling. Villa Sahane is wonderfully equipped with modern furnishings and a mixture of Turkish and English artefacts and paintings. The television/ DVD system is very up to date, there is a safe and security alarm and air conditioning throughout. Outside, there is a good sized pool with two large parasols and comfortable sun lounges. The grounds are beautiful and well maintained, and we were able to pick an abundance of lemons,oranges and pomegranates during our stay. We love the kosk, BBQ and bar area with outside fridge for relaxing barbecues. The kosk is also shaded with natural plants, for a relaxing afternoon nap !!. The fitter members of our party used the bikes to visit some interesting out of the way places around Dalyan. We enjoyed coffee at the riverside restaurants and trips on the river taxi to Turtle Beach.

John's attention to details prior to our arrival has always been first class and the caretaker Mehmet was very helpful during our stay.

Overall a brilliant holiday once again.

We will be returning !!!.

Sandra and friends.

Fantastic Villa, Great Location, Fully Equipped

  • 5 of 5

This was our second time to stay at Villa Sahane. The first was 3 years previously and we thought the villa was great then. We were travelling with our two boys aged 7 and 5. For them the highlight was the swimming pool, which is much larger than other villas we have stayed in.

For my wife and I we enjoyed the spaciousness of the villa and the facilities that were provided both inside and outside. So often when you stay in villas it is hard to find a simple thing like a sharp knife. The owners at villa Sahane have truly left a home for visitors to share. The kitchen, bedrooms, lounge areas are all fully equipped with everything you need and more.

Outside the highlight for me was the BBQ, outdoor kitchen and Kosk area. Great in the day for escaping the sun and heat, perfect at night for grilled lamb (from the local butcher) and few drinks.

The location is perfect. Getting to and from the centre is an easy walk. Getting to the beach by car is just 20 mins (or you can use the a

water dolmus). The owners provide bikes to use, which we did, for short runs to the shops or to the other side of town to Saki (in my opinion the best restaurant in Dalyan).

I would not hesitate to recommend Villa Sahane to anyone wanting to stay in Dalyan. The owner Jeff is so organised he just makes everything a breeze.

Dalyan 2016

  • 5 of 5

Firstly, it's worth saying that the booking experience and support leading up to the holiday from the owner John was brilliant. He answered many questions for me, sent me all information needed and was generally a great help.

The villa itself is terrific. I've been to Turkey 9 times and Dalyan 6 in villas, and this was without doubt the best villa for both location and the cleanliness, size and facilities. The villa is a quick 5 minute walk from the centre yet is quiet and feels secluded due to the grounds it's set in. If your a fit freak like me, the BC Spa is just round the corner and allows gym access for a fee. There's also full spa facilities there that we used.

The villa furnishings were brilliant and included a safe. The TV was brand new and the DVD player and Amazon Firestick were a nice touch.

Overall a brilliant holiday, brilliant villa and would highly recommend.

‘Villa Sahane’ means beautiful in Turkish. It is certainly that, in every way. It is well furnished in every room, the kitchen is superbly equipped and all rooms are air conditioned. A new satellite television system had just been installed in the large lounge, accessing 100s of programs. We enjoyed that on our occasional nights in. Outside, there are some mature fruit trees in an immaculate garden, and we loved the welcome shade of the authentic Turkish kosk, and enjoyed two barbecues in the adjacent bar and BBQ area. The pool is a good size, and has a shallow part for toddlers. We arrived with 6 adults and 2 children and was amazed at the size, no one got in any ones way, it's huge. There are plenty of sunbeds, with complimentary toweling covers, and lots of shade from large parasols. There are good bikes to explore the Dalyan area – we particularly enjoyed the Dalyan bike trail to the Yalicapkini ( Kingfisher) Bar in the reed beds off the beach road. The villa is private in a quiet area, but in an ideal position for many of the local restaurants and the harbor. A bonus was the pre holiday advice sent to us by John. I need say no more..

Beautiful Villa, immaculate throughout. Ideal location for everything. This is the second visit to this villa and will definitely return as soon as we can.

John was great at communicating everything to and for us, transfers were arranged also by John without any problems.

If I could would be a 6 star rating.
