About the property

Apartment in Dalyan, Turkey - Peaceful Location, 5 minutes walk to Town Centre

Our apartment is part of a lovely house, in a country setting, yet only a short and delightful walk from all the attractions of Dalyan. Dalyan is a nature-lovers' paradise, a secret location known only to a few lucky people, who want to escape into the past, into an age of privileged tourism, away from the hustle and bustle of the modern world. It is small town on the south-western coast of Turkey, yet only 25 km from the International Dalaman Airport. Dalyan is set in the centre of a broad delta, whose natural beauty remains unspoilt, and has been designated an environmentally protected area. Water taxis will take you to the famous Iztuzu beach, a five kilometer stretch of fine sand, where turtles come to lay their eggs. Many species of birds come here as they migrate to Africa and people come to relax and explore. The town is famous for its Lycian tombs carved into the rockface of the river bank, its mud baths, ancient ruins and the impressive Koycegiz lake.

Why Glenys Law chose Lycian & Turquoise Coast

Meadow Apartments is a lovely house that stands in its own grounds, with view of mountains and the surrounding fields. It is divided into five apartments which are used by their respective owners but also rented out occasionally to holidaymakers. It is supremely peaceful, not only because of its rural setting, but also because we do not let to families with children under 14 years of age.

The house also benefits from appearing to be in isolated countryside, yet the town is within a five minute walk behind the hill at the end of road!

What makes this apartment unique

What we love about Meadow Apartments is its natural setting and its tranquility, the exotic and natural garden, bordered on one side by an oleander hedge of pink and white flowers, the wildlife that wanders in from the fields, the birds that hover over the neighbouring cornfield, the sound of the breeze in the trees and the gurgling of the spring that borders the garden. We also love the fact that there never seems to be anyone else in the extra large pool and that we can swim peacefully up and down enjoying the view of the roses and the flowery vines.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We had a fantastic time in Turkey and loved Meadow Apartments. We had the pool virtually to ourselves, Only Chris in the apartment next door was there. She was lovely and very friendly to us. We loved the fact that it was so peaceful with no high rise hotels. There was so much to do and plenty that we didn't do to justify a return visit, we have already promised to come back ...

Tranquility at Meadow apartments

  • 5 of 5

Just what the doctor ordered I suppose! A complete break with all the facilities we needed. We really enjoyed having the bikes and used them a lot. Max enjoyed accompanying us when we cycled into town and waiting outside restaurants while we ate, a little disconcerting to begin with but by the end of our stay we missed him if he didn't come with us!

Such a peaceful spot, we were pleased we had chosen this area of Dalyan. May is a great time to go too because we saw so much wildlife, we thoroughly recommend walking around Okcular, a bit later in the year and you wouldn't want to walk far but the weather was perfect.

Everything was just as described, we are already telling all our friends about it and we would seriously consider returning. Many thanks Glenys.

We stayed in the apartment for 2 weeks in Sept 2014, the apartment was exactly as described, We had the most relaxing 2 weeks that we have had on any holiday we have been on, it was a 5 min walk to the local grocer down a lovely quite lane, the main town was only 10 Min max from the apartment. we looked at all the other apartments in Dalyan and was thankful we chose this one!, it was tranquil, peace and quite, watching the jays on the front garden every morning, we had the pleasure of the attention of Lola, the adopted dog, who will be moving to Belgium in November.

The pool area was clean and very quite on the sun beds, pool was spotless, attended 3 times a day, the gardens were immaculate, and well tendered.

The apartment had everything we needed, as we went solely self catering, we got lots of fantastic food from the Markets and local butchers.

It was my first holiday that i slept like a baby, the bed was very comfortable, as i am 6 feet 6 inches tall, i actually fitted in it!

If you want busy roads, lots of people walking about, lots of noise, please do not book this apartment, but if you want to hear birds chirping in the morning, cockerels in the background, lots of

butterflies, then come here.

We loved it, it was my first visit to Turkey, and i had a brilliant time and experience.

We had very good correspondence from Glenys at all times leading up to our holiday, she arranged the transfers, all on time, and very good value, we met 1 owner whilst we were there, again, very helpful and sang Glenys praises.

To sum up - If you want a good base for your holiday, that has peace and quite, good but quite access to the town, level access to the town, then come to Meadow apartments, you will not be disappointed in any way.

Andy and Teresa Buckley.

Owner's Response: Thank you Andy and Teresa, I'm glad you appreciated Meadow Apartments for the same reasons that we do; it's such a peaceful, unspoilt place. We are going out tomorrow to arrange for a new bathroom to be installed over the winter. So if you come back next year we might even get that extra star!

Charming Location

  • 4 of 5

This was our fourth holiday in Dalyan. The Meadow apartments has a charming location and is by far the best area of town that we have stayed in.

The apartment itself is basic although has everything that you would need, including some interesting books. We ate in for a couple of nights and found everything we needed to be able to cook a meal.

The bikes were fabulous and allowed us to cycle all over Dalyan. The pool is large and very clean, someone comes every day to maintain it.

There are some lovely local dogs (Max and Daisy) who come down to hang out with you - only if you allow them to of course.

We will definitely return to Dalyan and the Meadow apartments.

Our stay in the Nostalgia Holidays house in Dalyan was immensely enjoyable.

The area was superb and situated in a quiet and picturesque part of the town. The house itself had everything you could wish for, set in beautiful and well stocked gardens. The large swimming pool was fantastic. We had it to ourselves most of the time and to have a leisurely swim in the sun, whilst looking at the mountains in the distance was a truly wonderful experience.

The centre of the town was only a 10 min walk along a country lane and had a vast amount of good quality restaurants, bars and shops.

The beach was brilliant and we enjoyed the short boat trip to get there.

Overall, we would highly recommend our Dalyan holiday and look forward to returning soon.
