About Lesley Thomson

We are married with one son who is now 20 and still loves coming to Dalyan.

Lesley Thomson purchased this villa in 2014

Why Lesley Thomson chose Dalyan

We fell in love with Dalyan and the people since our first holiday there in 2007.

We designed Villa Scotville ourselves to take advantage of the large corner plot of 771 sqm, working closely with our architect and our builder.

Villa Scotville is how we would like to find a holiday villa, right down to the Morso wood burning stove that we have installed for use during November to March. The pictures of our villa do not fully capture how amazing the villa is, so have a look at our videos on YouTube.

What makes this villa unique

Great location!

Wonderful poolside setting!

Massive private swimming pool giving the opportunity for a real swim, or just loads of room for family fun.

Sit in the raised relaxation pool or just dangle your feet in water. Wonderful for all guests including the elderly.

Unique crescent shaped stone seating situated next to pool and BBQ area.

Fully insulated and air-conditioned detached villa offering guests the wow factor.

Beautiful Villa

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful stay at Villa Scotville - having visited Dalyan a number of times I have to say this villa is of the highest standard. The villa is beautifully presented throughout and has lovely 'homely' touches which make you feel right at home immediately.

It is excellently equipped with everything you would expect and more, such as coffee machine, wifi, wii games console, external drive with lots of current moves and no surcharge for air conditioning!

The villa is located in a scenic and peaceful area, a short walk (c.15mins) into the town centre - meaning it's just as nice to stay home and enjoy a bbq or go into town to one of the many quality restaurants.

One of the great things about this villa is the overall size and feeling of space - even with a large family the bedrooms and living space are very spacious, and the pool is a great size, long enough for an adult to enjoy a swim.

Dalyan is a great town to enjoy a restful holiday, it has a relaxed pace but there is still plenty do see and do such as the market (every Saturday) the tombs, a boat trip around the lake, turtle sanctuary and the mud baths.

Overall a 5* stay and look forward to returning again next year.

Beautiful villa

Great villa with a fantastic pool and lovely garden. The villa accommodation is well presented with large rooms well set out with a tasteful modern decor. The villa has great views of the surrounding area. We had a great holiday and grandson enjoyed the pool.

Owner's Response: Glad that you enjoyed your holiday in Villa Scotville. Simon and I always enjoy decorating the villas and try to furnish them as we would like to find a villa on holiday, right down to the Nespresso coffee machine. Villa Scotville is located in such a fabulous and peaceful part of Dalyan and is fortunate enough to have views of the rock tombs; sitting out on the terraces watching the storks fly over is lovely. Our son also enjoys the pools, getting him out of it to go out at night can sometimes be difficult!

Everything you could wish for from a villa holiday

  • 5 of 5

We have visited Dalyan many times over a number of years and have stayed in many different villas. Villa Scotville in our opinion far surpasses any other property we have stayed in. It is situated in a very peaceful location but only a short walk from Dalyan town centre with all its amenities. The villa was spotlessly clean upon arrival and is equipped with everything you need for your stay. The large pool and garden area are maintained on a daily basis. The owner was highly efficient in arranging everything from our initial contact and any queries were answered promptly. Their manager in Dalyan whom we have known a number of years is always on standby to resolve any issues or questions you may have and is a real asset. Summing up, we really could not fault this villa in any way for value for money, customer service from the owner and manager, we have already booked for next year.

Owner's Response: Thank you for taking the time to give us feedback. We put a lot of time and effort into designing and building Villa Scotville and are really glad that you enjoyed your time in the villa and Dalyan. We have furnished and equipped the villa as we would like to find a rental villa and we believe that it is very important to make sure that everything you may need for your holiday is in the villa. Our support team in Dalyan have been with us for many years and they do a fantastic job. As you say Ahmet, our Manager is always there if you need him and is happy to help where he can. We look forward to welcoming you both back to Villa Scotville next year.

Excellent stay at Villa Scotville

  • 5 of 5

Couldn't fault Villa Scotville. Everything was as described and more. The finish and furnishings of the villa were excellent. Being a regular visitor to Dalyan for the past 13 years having stayed mostly in villas I would certainly recommend this villa.

Love Dalyan - loved this villa.

Wonderful villa

  • 5 of 5

The villa looked lovely as we drew up outside, but when we walked round the side of the house where it opens out to the pools and terrace it was stunning. The relaxation pool was amazing, we sat there most afternoons relaxing with a drink after a few lengths in the main pool. The main pool was great as it was long enough to be able to swim laps and the easy access steps are a good idea.

Villa Scotville is one of the nicest villas we have every stayed in. It has everything you need, and more, for your holiday. The kitchen was very well equipped with plenty of crockery and glassware so we didn’t run out of cups!

Dalyan itself is lovely, so chilled and relaxing with plenty of nice restaurants to choose from. We tended to spend our days relaxing around the pool at the villa and then going in to Dalyan at night for a meal. We did have BBQs on a few nights and loved the fact that there was workspace beside the BBQ and seating so the person cooking was not on his own.

Can’t thank Lesley enough for all her help, from making the booking to arranging transfers to and from the villa, it made everything so easy.

We will return to Villa Scotville and Dalyan.

Nearest Airport
28 Kilometres
Car: not necessary


You can choose to go to the beach either by road (Dolmus) which takes approximately 20 - 25 minutes, or by public boat which takes slightly longer at 45 minutes. The boat trip is fantastic especially as you pass the Rock Tombs on the way.


Flights: Dalaman International Airport is 25 - 30 minutes drive from the villa and flights are available from most UK local and international airports and many other European countries.

Transfers: we can organise transfers for you. The transfer cost in 2015 is £30 each way for up to six guests and you will be taken direct to the villa door.

Car hire is not essential as you are very close to the centre of town and there is a very good local bus service from Dalyan to all major towns nearby


The villa is 60km from Fethiye and 86km from Marmaris.

Ortaca is only 13km with Dalaman being slightly further at 22km.

Koycegiz is 17km away and takes about 28 mins by road, it is also possible to take a scenic boat trip to Koycegiz.

Further Details:


Peaceful by day, Dalyan really comes alive at night with plenty of shops, restaurants and small bars to add a change of pace to your day.

The choice of restaurants around the river and square are all good quality and you will have great difficulty in choosing a favourite eating place. There are also many cafe's and small eating places for family eating and you will find that all the restaurants are amazingly good value, especially with the improved exchange rate. You will also find many places to have a drink, listen to music or even watch sport on television.

Everywhere you go in Dalyan you will find a friendly welcome making Dalyan the resort to have a relaxing family holiday.

From Dalyan you can hire one of the many brightly coloured boats for the day, stretch yourself out on a sun mattress as the boat meanders lazily down the river. You can swim in the transparent turquoise waters, go fishing or turtle watching, eat lunch on the boat and enjoy afternoon Turkish tea, all for a very reasonable price.
