About Charlotte

We are an English family who lived in Istanbul for 12 years and wanted somewhere in the South for get away weekends and to enjoy the Turkish summers.

We have 3 young children - Harry, Benjamin and Georgina (hence Villa Harjamina).

We now live in Barcelona but return to Akkaya every summer to enjoy the Turkish hospitality, weather, food and relaxing environment of Akkaya.

Charlotte purchased this villa in 2008

Why Charlotte chose Dalaman

Dalaman is still a relatively unspoilt area of Turkey and, as we live in the bustling city of Istanbul, we wanted somewhere that was both close to some wonderful sights and beaches but that was based slightly away from it all. The villas are well tended and are in a beautiful valley so you drive through small villages and through stunning woodland to reach them. Stunning views and peace and quiet.

What makes this villa unique

The villas are secluded and are away from the tourist race of ticket touts and restaurant touts. There is an amazing restaurant on site and everyone around is very friendly - renting the villas because they also want to be able to choose between a peaceful day beside the pool or a short drive to the nearby tourist sights.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We had a really lovely holiday! The villa was very comfortable and in a lovely position. This was our first holiday in Turkey. We found the people so friendly everywhere and so HAPPY! The countryside is gorgeous and everywhere is so clean and well maintained. I would certainly recommend the villa and the region. The restaurant was good, serenaded by the frogs! Your emails have meant the holiday has felt much more personal. We have so enjoyed your lovely home, Thank you! Mrs L Walsh

We had a fantastic holiday and the villa was amazing. Thank you so much for letting us stay in your little bit of paradise. We loved it so much that we would be interested in booking the villa again next year as there is so much to see and do in the area. Mrs A Tee

Fantastic Villa

  • 5 of 5

The villa is spectacular and very well appointed. We have rented this villa on three separate occasions over three years and really cannot fault it. There is loads of room and it is located within a small complex that has two separate pools. We have never seen it crowded and have met really lovely people there, some year after year! We have been as a couple and also with our teenage sons and it has met all expectations. The walk to and from the restaurant is delightful and with tables set up in the trees and wonderful food, you can't go wrong. Top marks all round, if there wasn't so much of the World to see, we would go every year!

Next time we will stay for longer!

  • 5 of 5

I must say this was a fantastic 10 day holiday. We have 2 young children and this was just perfect for us. The villa is spacious, clean and we loved having the pool just a stone's throw away. Our kitchen was very well equipped with everything we needed. We took many day trips, including boat trips, as recommended by the very helpful owners, and we all enjoyed ourselves immensely. Car hire was arranged for us at a very good rate - I would recommend hiring a car for convenience - and roads in the area are in good condition and easy enough to navigate. The kids still talk about the 'tree top' restaurant and the horse riding offered on the property. What a great and comfortable way to explore this part of Turkey! So many fabulous places within easy reach. Highly recommended.

Special interest holidays:

The area provides beautiful nature walks in the forest and around the lake. Biking is also very popular and bikes can be kept in the villa. There is horse riding on site and boat trips and canoes are offered on the lake. There is also scuba diving in Dalayan where you get the opportunity to dive over the remains of sunken cities and wrecks.


There are many stunning beaches nearby: Sarigerme beach is blue flag and offers watersports, well tended gardens, a small zoo and restaurants. Iztuzu beach and lagoon is famous for being a breeding ground for turtles and is clean and safe to swim in. Calis beach is close to Fethiye or you can visit Oluz Deniz - the famous lagoon. The nearest beach is Sarigerme and is 20 minutes' away.


Dalaman airport is about 25 minutes' drive from Akkaya Gardens. It's a direct road through Dalaman then about 15 minutes drive up through the forest which provides stunning views over the valley. Car hire is recommended although taxis will transport you happily to the villa. We can arrange car hire for you as well as airport transfers


Stunning Gocek marina is about 20 minutes' drive where you'll find many lovely restaurants or just enjoy a stroll amongst the boats. Take a boat trip from Dalyan to see the lycean rock tombs or to the ancient city of Kaunos. Visit the largely untouched Turkish village of Koycegiz or walk through the millenia old Saklikent gorge. A visit to the old Greek village of Kaya Koyu outside Fethiye is a must!

Further Details:

The closest supplies are in Dalaman where you'll find supermarkets and lots of local turkish shops however, for more cosmopolitan shopping, visit Gocek or Fethiye. There is a restaurant on site or drive to Fethiye, Dalyan or Gocek for a wider variety of restaurants. Fish is highly recommended in this area. Biking is popular however don't underestimate the hills! Horse trekking and jeep safaris are also available.
