About Lesley Thomson

We are married with one son who is now 22 and still loves coming to Dalyan.

Lesley Thomson purchased this villa in 2010

Why Lesley Thomson chose Dalyan

We first visited Turkey in 2007 and fell in love with Dalyan and the people who are both friendly and helpful. It is a town where we immediately felt at home and relaxed. Although our second villa is again in a quiet location it is only a short walk to the supermarkets, local shops and many wonderful restaurants. It is quite possible to stay here without the need of a car. We have never felt the need to hire a car.

If you are looking to go on holiday with friends and family we have another two bedroom villa available for rent, which is within 1 minute's walk of Villa Lochville. Our other villa is also advertised on OwnersDirect.

Villa Lochville is located in the popular Gulpinar Area of Dalyan.

What makes this villa unique

We love the peace and quiet and of course the huge stunning private swimming pool which is 12 metres in length. Knowing the benefit of having a large pool we set out this time to ensure the pool was over 60 square metres in area to allow everyone a real swim. There is also separate smaller pool for young children.

Everything is provided for you, we even have radio alarm clocks, tongs, hairdryers and foot pumps for airbeds. We haven't forgotten about entertainment either and provide a variety of books, CDs, Xbox games and board games. We have a media player in the villa with a fabulous selection of movies for the whole family to enjoy

A separate dining area has been built into a bay window giving you the luxury of choosing to eat either inside or outside on the large covered terrac

Amazing Villa - Amazing place.

  • 5 of 5

Myself and my partner had an exceptionally relaxing week at this beautiful Villa in Dalyan. It was our first time to Turkey and the town was lovely. The convenience store was only a couple of minutes walk from the villa and the main town consisting of bars, restaurants, supermarkets and gift shops was only a 12-15 minute stroll which we did every day.

The facilities in the villa were superb and we had everything we needed to make our stay stress free and comfortable. The pool was definitely the show stopper for us.

We would highly recommend this Villa and will definitely return however next time it will be for two weeks instead of one. :)

Excellent private villa

  • 5 of 5

This was our first time in a villa and we loved every minute of it. The villa is very spacious, much bigger than it looks in the pictures. It was very clean and everything was provided to make your stay enjoyable and comfortable.

The pool is fantastic and the garden is surrounded by pretty trees making it very private even thou surrounded by other villas.

It was a 10/15 minute walk into town, where there are lots of shops, bars and restaurants.

We highly recommend this villa ( but not too much as we don't want it to be fully booked when we want to return!!! )

Go, you'll love it! :-)

Nice Clean Villa

  • 5 of 5

Very pleased with the villa and would definitely return. The villa itself was clean and well equipped. The pool was kept to a high standard and the gardener / pool man was very pleasant. The wi-fi is excellent and the main bedroom even had bedside lamps (something you don't normally get in a Turkish Villa).

The villa owner (Lesley) was very helpful and communications from her were very efficient and friendly.

The villa was also very quiet and private which was just what we wanted but please be aware that if the surrounding villas were occupied (which they weren't when we were there) it is likely that you could be subject to quite a bit of noise. The villa is a pleasant stroll into the town of Dalyan and the maps etc. provided in the villa were very helpful.

Some chickens adopted us whilst were in the villa which was fun and we rescued a hedgehog from the pool one morning - all of which added to the overall fun of being in Turkey and at the Villa.

Only real criticism was that there were a number of light bulbs not working and there was no loo roll when we first got there. The managing agent supplied some light bulbs but it would have been good if he had done the check before we arrived. But these are only small issues in the grand scheme of things:-)

Owner's Response: We are very glad that you enjoyed your stay in Villa Lochville and weren’t too discourage by the lack of toilet rolls and lightbulbs. There is nothing worse than after a long flight to arrive at a villa and find no toilet rolls. We can only assume the cleaner forgot to put them out as we make sure there are more than enough toilet rolls to last the entire season. We will mention to Emel when we see her to make sure there are always toilet rolls put out in future. Of course all of the lights should have been working and we do put spare bulbs in the kitchen cupboard at the start of the season, after that we rely on our Manager to check the villa and replace the stock as required. Thank you for highlighting this, please be assured we will address the matter. We can understand your comment about noise levels, especially as there are six villas with their gardens back to back, but we have never really found it particularly noisy and we have stayed there frequently over the years and visit the villa on changeover days if we happen to be in Dalyan. It is helped by the fact that the villa immediately in front of Villa Lochville is not rented and is only used by the couple who own it. The villa diagonally to the left is only rented to family, so also tends to be quieter. Thank you for taking the time to write a review as we find them very helpful and are always looking for ways to improve.

A Lovely Home from Home

  • 5 of 5

This is a lovely little villa in a great quiet location. We loved the fact that it was all on one level, it was really spacious and the owners have literally thought of everything to make your stay really enjoyable. The kitchen is very well equipped but we mainly used it for breakfast and lunch as to eat out in Dalyan is so cheap. We had a 13 year old with us so the media centre, games console and wifi were extremely useful. The location is great, just a 15 min stroll into the centre of Dalyan. We tended to walk into town and then get a taxi back (approx. £3) and all the taxi companies knew where the villa was. The garden and the pool area are all really well maintained. Can’t really fault anything about the villa, the owners have very high standards which clearly shows in all their villas.

First time in a villa

  • 4 of 5

2 adults and 2 kids and this villa was an ideal size for us. Pool a great size compared to some we saw and so clean. Transfer organised by owners went smoothly and movies and games supplied were great when it got too hot. Definitely recommend

Car hire is not essential as you are close to town and there is a very good local bus service from Dalyan to all major towns nearby. Cars, mopeds and bikes can be hired locally in Dalyan. Many local tour companies run excursions to historical sites and Dalyan boat corporation also have many varied excursions on offer.


From the villa it is a gentle 12 minute stroll into Dalyan town centre.
