About the property

Villa in Dalyan, Aegean Region, Turkey - Peaceful Relaxed Location, 15 Minutes Walk To The Centre Of Dalyan

Villa Leylek is a stone built villa with open plan lounge and kitchen on the ground floor leading to the sun terrace and pool. Upstairs are two double bedrooms both en suite with balconies facing the pool. In the cool basement are two single beds and a double sofa bed. Again the basement is en suite.

All that you need for your holiday is here. It is a home from home. The villa is air conditioned throughout. Outside in the gardens is the cardak, a traditional turkish raised platform with cushions, for lazing on warm afternoons complete with a hammock. A stone built barbecue, sun beds and private pool complete the recipe for lazy living but, if you do feel energetic take one of the three bicycles that come with the villa to investigate the river path and Dalyan itself.

The area is teeming with wildlife and of course storks in season. Look out for the lizards in the garden and the odd passing tortoise.

About Richard Monkman

We live in England, in the Midlands, and have both recently retired. Our three sons are grown up with one in Amsterdam, one at Nottingham University and another working in Birmingham. We now spend as much time as we can in Dalyan, having fallen in love with the place on a chance visit twelve years ago.

We chose the villa because of its stone and wood construction, which had a rural feel to it. We also like its relaxing and peaceful location on the edge of the Gulpinar

part of Dalyan.

Richard Monkman purchased this villa in 2006

Why Richard Monkman chose Lycian & Turquoise Coast

We love Dalyan, the town, friendly locals and its beautiful surroundings. Koycegiz lake, Iztuzu beach and the Dalyan delta offer such a range of scenery and activities that we feel is hard to beat. The great thing about Dalyan is that you can dip in the bustle of the town or relax in the quiet and seclusion of the lake and countryside. It's a beach holiday, if you want, or you can be more active with many outdoor activities, from white water rafting to mountain biking. You can pamper yourself at the local Hammam or in the mudbaths (five minutes across the river from the villa).

As a holiday centre it allows you to make your holiday what you want.

What makes this villa unique

Dalyan itself offers a good range of restaurants with the centre fifteen minutes walk from the villa, although the bikes make transport easy and fun. We've tried to equip the villa as a family home and make it feel as such, so that guests are comfortable and away from it all (even though there is wifi for those who must stay in touch).

The garden and pool are private to the villa, with shady trees, banana plants and a traditional Cardak with hammock to laze in. The barbecue gives the opportunity for lazy evening meals, if you want a change from the local restaurants. Try barbecued fresh sea bream or bass from the fish shop in town; grab a glass of your favourite drink and watch the sun go down behind the mountains, a perfect end to the day.
