About the property

Villa in Dalyan, Mugla, Aegean Region, Turkey - Peaceful Location, 25 Mins To The Beach By Boat

Villa Rosa is situated at the southern end of the village of Dalyan. It is close to the river and near a public jetty. There are magnificent views of the Lycian Rock Tombs in the cliffs opposite, which are floodlit by night and can be seen from main bedroom. A short boat trip takes you to Turtle Beach, the breeding grounds of the rare and protected loggerhead turtles. Upstream is a large lake and thermal springs, mud bath and Turkish bath. The Villa has a beautiful pool (shallow area 0.5m, mostly 2m deep) and gardens with loungers and a summer house (Kosk). A lounge and diner with fully equipped kitchen are on the ground floor together with a bedroom and bathroom with wheelchair access. There is roadside parking available though as restaurants and shops are within a short walking distance, most guests find a car unnecessary.

About Derek Boyd

The owners are chartered accountants (one retired) who live in the north east of England

Derek Boyd purchased this villa in 2008

Why Derek Boyd chose Dalyan

Turkey wasn’t at the top of my list of countries to visit – in fact it wasn’t on my list at all! I took up an invitation to holiday in a villa belonging to an old friend – in a place called Dalyan (which meant nothing to me). He had been going there for years…but he said I wouldn’t be disappointed and I valued his judgment, so I went in 2007. Shortly after I came back from that holiday (which was superb by the way) three plots became available in a new development near the river in a quiet part of town and the result was three superb properties were built in 2008 – we have the middle villa. Dalyan, the place was nothing like I expected. In fact Dalyan is one of the friendliest places I have ever been to. Go there once and you will be hooked!

What makes this villa unique

If you like to be surrounded by beautiful mountain scenery, with as much activity – or as little - as you want, where you don’t need to drive (everywhere is within walking distance) then choose Dalyan. It is close to an excellent 5 km beach on the Aegean Sea, and a large lake, both just a short boat trip away. If you like a place where there are no night clubs but lots of bars and restaurants with good quality food, then this is a good place to spend some time. And the weather is pretty good too! Oh and there is a bit of history to this part of the world – one prominent feature from the Lycian times are the Rock Tombs, over 2000 years old, carved into the mountain across the river. They are lit up at night as a stunning back drop to the villa and the riverside to provide a magical setting.

Superb villa

  • 5 of 5

Superb villa. Very spacious, light and airy. Pool was very well maintained with twice daily visits by gardener. Bedrooms all large and all have their own good sized bathrooms. Decor is very good with lots of nice local items (throws/cushions etc). The area of Dalyan is gorgeous and the villa is in a great position to enjoy everything. Photos don't do the villa justice. Gardens are more well grown than in the photos so plenty of privacy assured. Can highly recommend Villa Rosa and very good communication from Derek the owner. Thank you.

Fantastic !!!

  • 5 of 5

We had a fantastic stay in Villa Rosa and only wish we could have stayed longer! The villa was perfect, met and exceeded our expectations and Dalyan was a great base for our first holiday in Turkey. Book this villa and you won't be disappointed. Many thanks.

We were a party of eight ladies ranging in age from 18 years to 60 plus and nearly all first time visitors to Turkey. We had a ball! Everything about the villa was beyond excellent and we particularly liked the Kosk where we spent most of our evenings putting the world to rights and laughing til we cried! The whole are was lovely and people were so helpful in the restaurants we visited. We really had such a good time that we are hoping to re visit next year.

Winter Sun

  • 5 of 5

We had an amazing week thanks to the beautiful villa in a suberb setting. The views of the rock tombs from both the poolside and balcony are stunning - few villas in the area have a view as good as this. The pool is perfect for cooling off or burning off one of the many evening meals from the local riverside restaurants (which are all within walking distance and serve a wide range of food including some excellent Turkish cuisine). Use of the bikes is an added bonus as the local area is well worth exploring to appreciate the landscape for yourself. Dalyan is certainly a place to go as the relaxed nature of the local people make for a stress-free holiday and the charms of the area will make you want to return again and again. Villa Rosa offers all the facilities and creature comforts one could ask for.

Fantastic Villa

  • 5 of 5

We love Dalyan and this villa is in a great spot - easy walking access to everything. The villa is delightful. Spacious, well equipped (we particularly appreciated the bicycles) and tastefully decorated. A great location for two families to enjoy some sunshine!

5 star holiday!!

  • 5 of 5

We had a family holiday in Dalyan with parents and grandparents and stayed at Villa Rosa! Having not been to Turkey before we didn't know what to expect but could not have asked for anything more! The villa was beyond our expectations with four bedrooms and four bathrooms, so privacy for all, but also a lovely big outside area to get together and our own gorgeous pool! We took teh opportunity to go on a private boat trip which was fantastic with an inclusive BBQ at sea, and enjoyed delicious meals every night in the various restaurants!! I would absoulutely recommend this villa and Dalyan to anyone!!

Owner's Response: Thanks for your comments Amanda - glad you enjoyed your holiday in Dalyan. As you say - no need for a car as everything is within walking distance. Boat trips are the speciality of the locals here and they are so good - next time try a night-time trip up to the lake - a unique feeling....
