About the property

Apartment in Dalyan, Aegean Region, Turkey - Peaceful Location Surrounded By Fields And Mountains But Only 5-10 Minutes Walk From The Town

Meadow Apartment is situated in a large house on a small country lane amidst fields and mountains and is one of very few apartments or villas in Dalyan from where you can see the sea. It feels surprisingly peaceful and secluded considering it is only 5-10 minutes walk from the centre of town with it's riverside bars and restaurants.There are stunning mountain views from the pool which is 100 square metres - an extremely good size, in fact larger than many hotel pools! The rustic and natural garden is full of palm trees and fruit trees, roses and oleanders, and there are a number of shady areas covered with climbing plants. This makes it ideal for nature lovers, bird watchers, walkers and bikers or simply those who like the peace and tranquility of the countryside but also want to be within a short walk of the bars and restaurants. It gives the best of both worlds.

About Celia Thompson

My name is Celia and I am a freelance dietitian/nutritionist. Ian, my husband, is a Director of a software company. We live in Surrey close to our 2 daughters Alice and Kate. We have always travelled a lot and returned to Turkey (usually Dalyan for one week and somewhere new for the other) most years since our first trip there in 1987. We hadn't planned to buy somewhere but absolutely fell in love with Meadow Apartment and it's situation when we first saw it. We visit Dalyan around 3 times a year. Our girls have loved it whatever their ages (as it suits all ages) and they still continue to visit a couple of times a year now they are in their late 20's. If you choose to visit our apartment we hope you will love it and Dalyan as much as we do!

Celia Thompson purchased this apartment in 2008

Why Celia Thompson chose Dalyan

We have been visiting Dalyan for about 18 years with our 2 daughters. We have travelled all around Turkey and have visited some amazing places but it is still Dalyan that draws us back. We have stayed in many different hotels and then in 2008 we fell in love with Meadow Apartment and its beautiful setting. We feel Dalyan has something for everyone and all ages, and even though it can be very busy at times, you can always find somewhere peaceful, especially at our Apartment. Meadow Apartment is situated just outside the town in a rural road populated with chickens. dogs & frogs. It almost feels like it could be in the middle of nowhere but is in fact only 10 minutes walk from the bars, restaurants and shops. We hope you will love it as much as we do!

What makes this apartment unique

Meadow Apartment is a special place. It has amazing views of mountains, fields, the river and the sea and even views of the rock tombs from the top balcony. It is surrounded by wildlife and even has it's own resident small owl family. The gardens are spacious and relaxing and yet the walk into town is only ten minutes along the lane and just five minutes to the first shop/snack bar. Sitting on our top balcony early in the evening you can enjoy fabulous views, and watch the owls and bats flying around you. There are also so many different things to do in and around Dalyan such as boat trips to the beach and the lake, mud baths, jeep safari, white water rafting, canyoning, 12 islands boat trip and many walks, cycle rides etc.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Charlotte and Mark (June 2014)

This has been our first visit to Turkey - and what a delight it has been. Firstly, Meadow Apartment has been an excellent place to stay- very comfortable and wonderful views from the top balcony. Some of our highlights here included the 12 islands boat trip, discovering the ruins across the river, BBQ night on the lake (which included a trip to the mudbaths!) and all the delicious food Dalyan has to offer (the lamb has been especially delisious). We would highly recommend Dalyan and Meadow Apartment to anyone. Thank you Celia and Ian for a fantastic holiday.

Jenny, Aaron, Louise & Steven (June 2014)

As my husband and I's second trip to Dalyan it was great to come back to somewhere we know and love. We came with my sister and brother-in-law for a family wedding and everyone loves Dalyan. Meadow Apartment has been great - enough space for two couple to have their own time, not to mention the fantastic pool. We have been quite lazy during our time here but can recommend a Turkish Bath at Sahin Apartments and also a private boat tour with Villa Kiydan just down the road. Thanks to Celia and Ian for providing a great apartment and also great correspondence from booking to going on our holiday. I would definitely recommend Meadow Apartments. Best wishes.

Barbara from Nottingham:

We had the most delightful stay here. 10 min walk from the town, but peaceful and private, with a lovely pool and fresh spring water in the field next door. From the balcony you could see the boats making their way down to the sea, and watch the owls swooping in the eve. The apartment has everything that you could possibly need. And the owners are extremely helpful. We will return!

Judith & Colin from Surrey:

We have had a glorious week of touring beautiful Dalyan and surrounding areas. Tasty food at interesting restaurants and such friendly staff too! In fact Dalyan is a very friendly place to stay and we shall be coming again!

The apartment is so comfortable with everything you could need and the pool is enormous!

Ruth, Simon & Jerome:

This was our second visit to Dalyan; we had a wonderful time at Meadow Apartment. The apartment itself was very well laid out, it was so comfortable here we sometimes didn’t get started till 5 pm!

Notes on accommodation: The apartment is situated in a county house and shares the pool with 4 other apartments. Our apartment is on the 1st and 2nd floors of the building. It has an internal and external staircase between the 2 levels. The internal staircase is a narrow open tread construction which makes it unsuitable for young children. The layout of the apartment makes it ideal for 2 couples, or a family with older children. It allows a certain amount of independence as both floors have bathrooms and kitchen facilities (upper floor only basic kitchen for snacks, drinks etc) and can be accessed separately. Due to the layout of the apartment and the depth of the pool the apartment is unsuitable for children under 14. Outside: The house contains four apartments, sharing a huge (100sq.m) pool and a large mature garden which is natural and rustic. Sunbeds are provided by the pool (and our apartment has 2 extra sunbeds). The front garden is situated next to a fresh water spring, and has many areas to sit and relax.There is also room for car parking if you wish to hire a car. The pool is often filled with spring water and minimal chemicals are used except in the height of summer. Utility Room: Upstairs room has a kitchenette with washing machine and fridge and enough equipment for snacks and drinks, allowing 2 couples/families to have some independence from each other. Cleaning / Towels / Linen / Maid service: Linen and towels are included and the apartment will be cleaned before and after your stay, and midway if staying for 2 weeks. We also provide hot water bottles and umbrellas for those visiting out of season. Other: The upper room leads via French windows onto a large balcony with far-reaching amazing views of mountains, fields, the river and the sea in the distance. On a clear day you can see Rhodes. This balcony has a large table with 6 chairs.

Special interest holidays:

Dalyan is very popular with birdwatchers. Dalyan sits on the Dalyan river between the Mediterranean and Koycegiz lake. The river meanders, forming a network of small lakes. It travels through reed beds which range in height from 3 to 5 metres. These wetlands are home to many bird species and storks regularly nest in the area.


Iztuzu beach is a beautiful stretch of golden sand approximately 5 kms long. It is famous as an important nesting ground for the loggerhead turtle, Caretta caretta and is a protected beach.

There are 2 ways to get to the beach from Dalyan. Firstly a slow and relaxing boat ride through the reed beds to one end, or an exhilarating minibus ride over the mountain to the other end. A lovely thing to do is to get the boat to one end, walk along the beach and get the bus back, or vice versa.


Dalyan is situated 25km from Dalaman airport and the journey to the apartment takes approximately 30 minutes.

A car is not needed as there are so many things to do locally and there are many tours available (you would be collected from and returned to the apartment). Water taxis and local minibuses run regularly to the beach. However it is easy to hire a car if you want to travel further afield.

Bicycles and mopeds are both easy to rent at very reasonable prices.


Dalaman airport is 25 kilometres.

The ruins of ancient Kaunos are 2 kilometres.

Iztuzu turtle beach 10 kilometres.

Further Details:

The closest restaurants and supermarkets are just a five minute WALK from the apartment. There is a huge choice of restaurants in Dalyan to suit all tastes. Many of these line the riverside where you can look at the illuminated rock tombs or see turtles.

Adventure sports, beach swimming, cycling, boating, fishing, hiking, rock climbing, kayaking, rafting, sailing and scuba diving are all available very locally or within a short drive.

There are also many shops for souvenirs in Dalyan (carpets, pottery, mosaic lights, jewellery, clothes) and a weekly market on Saturdays.
