About the Owner

Marco first came to Dalyan in 1986 and Diana first came in 1993. We came to live permanently in Dalyan in 2009 and have been renting out Villa Arici since 2010, Villa Gizem since 2013 and Villa Vizsla since 2015

Marco has worked in the tourism industry all his life, working in bars and restaurants before owning his own hotel and restaurant.

Diana is a chartered surveyor who having worked in the commercial property industry in London for over 20 years decided to sell up and move to Dalyan permanently in 2009.

As owners of the villa we want everyone who stays in it to enjoy it as much as we do. We live 5 minutes away and are available 24 hours a day to help out and answer any questions.

Heaven on earth

  • 5 of 5

Villa Arici exceeded our high expectations. An immaculate villa in a stunning location. Does exactly what is says on the tin. The owners Diana and Marco treated us like royalty. They prepared our meals for us every night as they were simply stunning. Nothing was too much trouble for them to ensure we had our perfect holiday. We have just got home and have already booked again for next year.

From the Owner

We bought the land in 2003 because of its location and stunning natural beauty, with a view to building a house on it. The building of the house commenced in 2005 and was completed in the spring of 2007, we decided not to rush the build to ensure everything was completed to the highest standard. One of the things we love most about the house is its location, surrounded only by pomegranate fields and a huge rock as the backdrop to the property we spend many hours enjoying the nature and natural beauty of it. Whilst the villa is totally secluded we can walk into town in 15 minutes and enjoy all the amenities it offers.

Special interest holidays:

Dalyan is a bird watchers paradise with many birds migrating through in the spring and autumn. Villa ARICI is in the perfect location to sit on the comfort of the terrace and watch the birds on the rock behind and fields surrounding the villa. The rock behind the villa has many types of birds nesting on it including birds of prey and owls.

One of the owners of the house is a professionally trained chef and we offer a food delivery service and cookery courses in Turkish cuisine. These courses are tailored to suit your own needs and can include mezes, Turkish home cooking and deserts.

We also provide a shopping service to ensure the villa is fully stocked on arrival.

There is a vegetable patch in the garden and fresh seasonal fruit and vegetables are provided to all guests along with fresh organic eggs from our own chickens.


Dalyan beach is so stunning it was awarded the Sunday Times best beach award in 2008. The beach is 6 km long with a cafe and sun loungers at each end, with miles of sand in between.

The beach is at the top of the Dalyan delta approximately 12 km from the centre of town. It can be reached via boat or bus. The boat taxi meanders through the reed beds of the delta to the beach and takes 40 minutes. Alternatively a 15 minute bus service runs from the centre of town taking 20 minutes.


The nearest airport is Dalaman which is a 25 minute drive from the villa.

Should you wish to explore the surrounding area and all its historical sites car hire can be arranged from the airport of from Dalyan.


Dalyan town centre is a 15 minute walk away. The ancient city of Kaunos together with its rock tombs is just across the river.

The surrounding area is full of places of historic interest. Fethiye with close by Tlos and Saklikent is a 45 minute drive. Pamukkale, a world heritage site, is a 2 1/2 hour drive. Ephesus, one of the best ancient Roman sites is a 3 hour drive.

Fethiye has a water park and fantastic fish market. The nearby town of Sarigerme also has a golf course.

Further Details:

Dalyan, whilst a small and relaxed village, has everything the discerning traveller could wish for. Its Saturday market is a joy to shop at, from its high quality fake designer wear to fresh vegetables and a plentiful selection of local spices and teas.

Also with the ancient city of Kaunos, thermal springs, mud baths, Turkish baths and scenic walks Dalyan has everything for a perfect relaxing holiday.

The town has five supermarkets, three butchers, three bread shops and two bakeries, plus numerous small markets to meet every need. There are over 30 bars and 100 restaurants in town. There is one bank and a post office in the centre of town.

Dalyan is also home to the endangered Loggerhead turtles who lay the eggs on the beach. Dalyan also has the largest population of soft shelled Nile Turtles.

From the Owner

As we designed the house ourselves we think we got everything we would want from a home - spaciousness, luxury, homeliness and a fantastic kitchen. The outside space is perfect for the summer where you can spend most of your time living outside yet it is cosy and warm in the winter, we had central heating installed as part of the build to ensure we never felt cold. We have never found another house in Dalyan that offers the luxury and privacy of Villa ARICI yet is so close to town.
