About the Owner
About Helena Ziolkowska-Metin
We live locally and can deal directly with our guests from key exchange to cleaning, repairs and anything in between. I have extensive knowledge of the area and can point you in the right direction for anything you require and any special request you have.
Why Helena Ziolkowska-Metin chose Lycian & Turquoise Coast
We specially chose this amazing location to build our villas. They are surrounded by nothing but pomegranate fields and nature, offering unadulterated views, fantastic peace & tranquility, privacy and above all space. To quote one of our guests "You're far enough out of town to enjoy the cicadas, the stars and the sunrises over the mountains, but close enough to nip in for bread, the bars, restaurants or whatever else."
The surrounding pomegranate trees are stunning in May and June with their bright red orchid like flowers and even more stunning in September and October when laden with huge ruby red fruit.
We put a great deal of effort into planning everything about Pomegranate Garden Villas to make them perfect and we hope that you will love our properties as much as we do.
What makes this villa unique
Our distinctive villas afford fabulous views across the countryside to the sea and benefit from the near constant sea breeze, a welcome luxury in the hot summer months. The view from every window and balcony is both incredibly peaceful and uplifting. The view of the stars at night is not to be missed as well as the sound of the crickets and the owls. Our private properties are especially convenient for large families, groups of friends or for anyone who wants to enjoy superb facilities in a beautifully natural, peaceful environment.
Strictly no smoking indoors. 20% of the rental cost required to secure booking. The remaining 80% to be paid 6 weeks before holiday. Deposits are non refundable and non transferable. Pay pal accepted. We require a breakage deposit of £200 for Villa Artemis, £400 for Byblis-Caria & £600 for all 3 villas. This will be returned after villa inspection. We accept that there can be a couple of broken glasses but this is to cover ourselves against anything more major. We maintain a very high standard.

The best ever....
Superbly appointed villa - 15 of us were very comfortable. Pools, bikes,cooking facilities met every expectation but most of all the hosting and care taken by Helena and Dundar made for another memorable visit.
Great place for a three generation Vacation.
What it says on the label is in the tin, three extremely well equipped villas
in a very quiet location . Excellent air conditioning , bathrooms , showers and kitchens and so on in a very tranquil pomegranate plantation , teo great pools. An ideal set up for a three generation vacation, ie grand parents in one villa with unmarried daughter .
Other two kids in separate villas with the little ones, so together , but plenty of space.
The town and tourist amenities are either a walk or 5 minute drive away, as the brochure says.
WE had one of the lopcal housewife cooks come in and cook three nights out of teh 7 we were there.
Helena was always available, and everything worked out as planned ie the pick ups from the airport and in theses politically unstable times one is so far off the track that peace and tranquillity are guaranteed , great security at the Dalaman airport.
Totally recommendable for a great vacation .
Amazing Villas in a Tranquil Setting
As a group of 16 its hard to find the perfect location and accommodation but we have found it. What a fantastic time we all had. These villas offer the perfect balance of communal areas and privacy which is needed over a 2 week holiday. Plenty of space, the top bedrooms are just huge - the photos don't do it justice. It was spotlessly clean and the provision of dishwasher tablets, loo rolls and laundry power meant we had no heavy shopping to haul back.
Helena kindly arranged our transfers and the collection from the airport and helped us arrange other trips throughout the holiday, the organisation was seamless.
Our most enjoyable day was a private boat trip around Dalyan, the Turtle Beach, we went crabbing, had a BBQ on the boat and visited the mud baths. The ages in our group ranged from 20 months to 61 years and every single one of us loved it!
The area of Dalyan is perfect for families as it has the right balance of entertainment/shops/restaurants without being too busy or boring.
The surroundings of the vIllas are so peaceful and the children loved the wildlife, the owls who live on the roof, a lost crab wandered to visit us one morning and lots of small lizards to try and catch!
The only negative point we could give was that the road (its only a short road) to the villas is not well developed and is quite bumpy and not level underfoot, thus difficult pushing a double pushchair (we have twins) up and down. However, it would never put us off going there again and double pushchairs aren't easily manouverable at the best of times!
We all fell in love with this place and I know we will be back for another visit as soon as we can. Thank you Pomegranate Gardens for a magical time - see you again soon :-)
I booked the Pomegranate Garden Villas for a Family holiday. There were 14 of us ranging in ages from 3 years old to 80.
The listing is accurate and the villas are beautiful and very well looked after. We were amazed at the high standard and it is clear that the owners look after and service the villas very well.
Communication with Helena was excellent and she went out of her way to make our stay perfect which increased the enjoyment of our holiday. We didn't even have to worry about shopping as we would give Helena a list and for a small charge she would purchase and deliver our shopping to us. The family made good use of the bikes which are an lovely added touch, but it was a pleasant walk into the centre.
Would I recommend it to a friend? YES and I already have done. We would certainly consider going back again.
We went towards the end of season so it was quiet but even in peak season I can imagine that Dalyan would be a great place to be especially for families. The night life would also be livelier but not in an obscene way as you sometimes get in larger resorts.
We enjoyed a fantastic day out on a boat trip organised by Helena who's husband is the captain. We saw turtles, and went to some gorgeous beaches. coves and bays to swim and dive whilst Dundar and his mate cooked us a BBQ. This was everyone's favourite day out of the whole holiday and if we had time we would have done it again.
Some of us also went on a jeep safari and we all experienced a Turkish bath and other treatments.
I would highly recommend the Whitehouse restaurant. Not just for its views from the terrace and of course the food, but the owner Mehmet went above and beyond excellent customer service by offering to pick up my 80 year old mother from the villa and to return her back there when she was ready to go.
All in all a wonderful holiday which was made even more superb by the exceptional service provided by the owners and the friendliness of the owner of the Whitehouse restaurant. I can't recommend them enough. If you book, you won't be disappointed.

Activity and Interests
Dalyan beach is a nesting site for loggerhead turtles with its own sanctuary where you can see injured species. Winner of The Times Best Open Spaces, Europe, it is also one of the safest beaches for children. Imagine a 5km stretch of golden sand from the base of a pine clad mountain to a river delta with not a single hotel, house or car in sight where rare turtles come to lay their eggs at night. The beach is accessible by road or by boat but don't be put off! The journey is pure delight!
Dalaman airport is very convenient, only 30 minutes' drive away. We can arrange transfer. The internet is the best place to search for flights. Arrivals from most UK airports.

Dalyan is a lovely, small, riverside town, a conservation area surrounded by cotton fields, pomegranate fields, orange and lemon groves and pine clad mountains. Development is limited in Dalyan which means no high rise buildings. Greenpeace plays an active role and local people still make a living fishing and farming. The Turkish Turquoise Coast boats 300 days of sunshine a year.
There are famous local mud baths and thermal springs and an ancient city just the other side of the river as well as spectacular 4th Century rock tombs carved into the cliff face which are spectacularly illuminated at night and visible from many of the bars and restaurants. There is a beautiful lake at the end of the river for you to cruise around and have a barbecue.... all this plus the beautiful beach. If you love the sea and the beach Dalyan is for you! If you love mountains and lakes, Dalyan is also for you! It's a unique area that has something for everyone all in one place.
Dalyan is laid back, low key and lovely; a unique place that is a hit with all ages.
