About the property

Villa in Dalyan, Aegean Region. Dalyan. Situated In The Popular Gulpinar Area Of Dalyan. Quiet, But Only 5 Minutes From The Town Centre

New in 2016 & 2017- see Note below,

Turka is a three bedroom detached villa in a lovely setting with it's own private pool and garden. Recently redecorated and refurbished with many new and updated features. Two bedrooms with balconies are on the first floor. The master bedroom has recently been completely refurbished (December 2017) with large walk in shower.. The family bathroom with shower on the first floor has also been refurbished to the same standard. (Updated photos will be posted after our planned short trip in Feb 2018). On the ground floor there is a third bedroom with twin beds. There is also a ground floor WC and wash hand basin. Large gardens with patio area overlooking good sized private pool with separate children's paddling pool.

Note: The terrace at Villa Turca was extended in 2016 across the whole of the rear of the property, taking advantage of the space available. This makes days and evenings at our villa even more pleasant as you can sit and relax under a shaded roof that now extends up to the sun bathing and pool area.

About Carol Savage

Hi there. We live in the UK near Birmingham and have always loved Turkey visiting many times over the last 20 years. In 2012 we decided to purchase a house in Dalyan after discovering it's delights whilst holidaying there.

Carol Savage purchased this villa in 2015

Why Carol Savage chose Dalyan

Situated in the Gulpinar area of town, close to shops, restaurants and the Town Centre but in a quiet residential area.

What makes this villa unique

Private garden, large waterfall swimming pool with the addition of separate children's play pool.

Guestbook comments from the owner

A beautiful villa set in lovely grounds in a quieter part of central Dalyan. Within walking distance to shops and bars, it is ideal for families/couples who would like to relax. The pool and garden surrounds were idyllic with an uninterrupted view...

The house was immaculate and well furnished, containing everything one might need for a holiday. Ŵe immediately felt at home and it was probably the best accommodation we have had in Dalyan. The addition of wifi was a big advantage and we are grateful that you had it installed.

Amazing stay in Villa Turca, couldn't ask for more

  • 5 of 5

Firstly the villa owners were extremely helpful, knowledgeable & accommodating. Their communication was excellent. They even arranged our transfers from the airport which went seamlessly. The villa itself was a good size for 3 adults & 2 children with the outside area and pool being better than we expected. The pool was the biggest we've ever had in a 3 bed villa! The villa was fully equipped, extremely clean and the pool man came every single day. The villas location was absolutely perfect. Walking distance from Dalyan town (even with two young girls that don't like walking) it was an easy stroll in for dinner with some local shops for essentials literally round the corner. Dalyan town is beautiful - highlights for us; jeep safari through Kuanos; trip to the local mud bath (not the tourist one - there is a natural one only the locals seem to know about); boat trip around the islands and turtle beach. Best restaurant Lime and Jazz Lounge at very far end of town. We would highly recommend Dalyan and without a doubt Villa Turca - we have absolutely nothing negative to say - it was just fabulous!

Fantastic holiday

  • 5 of 5

Villa Turka is only a five minute walk into town and the beautiful river with great shops, in the evening you can eat at one of the many restaurants some overlooking the river and you can marvel at the tombs carved into the mountain opposite which are lit up in the evening. There are many boats ready and waiting to take you to the beach, mud baths or endless trips all at very reasonable I prices. Turkish people in Dalyan are so warm and welcoming. Turka is a lovely villa, big garden and pool with a spacious terrace, table and chairs for 6 and a comfortable seating area to relax in the shade. We have been coming to Dalyan for many years it is the sort of place that once you have been you will want to come back again. Thanks to Graham and Carol for allowing us to use their villa and are always on hand to make sure we have a stress free holiday.

Fantastic Villa and holiday stay

  • 5 of 5

This was our 1st ever visit to Turkey and what a difference to all the adverse media reports. We felt safe and secure and were greeted by the locals and their kind hospitality, friendship & humour.

The Villa was absolutely beautiful, spacious and immaculately clean throughout with everything you needed to enjoy our stay. The private pool was super, cleaned every day, lit up at night and enjoyed by all.

We even met up with my old boss Graham and his wife Carol who were staying at their other Villa just a few minutes away. This was also a lovely well positioned property.

We can't wait to return to the Villa and further enjoy the company of the locals. The weather, food, drink, cleanliness and relaxing surroundings were exceptional with so many places and things to do if you want, so we already have plans for places to visit & things to do on our return.

We took so many photographs and have already shared them with family and friends who were very impressed as we also recommended both Villa's.

The River Town and Harbour's just five/ten minutes walk from the Villa where we took river boat trips, Turtle Beach & Turtle Hospital, Tomb's, Roman Ruins & Market which were great to visit along with many local restaurants with fabulous food and drink at super value prices.

Thank you for a wonderful holiday and experience and looking forward to our next return.

Brilliant stay

  • 5 of 5

We had a lovely stay at Villa Turca, definitely home from home but with better weather. The villa had every thing that you needed, it looked so pretty at night when the pool lights came on. Villa Turca is only a few minutes walk to the nearest restaurants and a ten minute walk to the town. The owners Carol and Graham have been so friendly and helpful, Carol replays to emails almost straight away. All our transfers were done for us, so we didn't have to worry about that. We booked for next year before we left so that says everything. Would definitely recommend Dalyan and Villa Turca. Can't wait for next year.

Fantastic holiday! Everything we wanted and more!

  • 5 of 5

Having rented a villa last year in Turkey, we decided to repeat the experience but this was the first time we had rented privately so I was a little concerned that things would not be as it seemed. How wrong could I be? The villa was in fact much nicer than I expected. The place was immaculately clean, comfortable and well presented. The pool was a little bigger than I thought and well maintained. The gardener/pool guy came every day! There was everything we could wish for in the villa, including tea towels, kitchen towels, washing up cloths, bin bags. Everything I had packed but never needed! I didn't recall there being wi fi mentioned but it was there and worked. The air conditioning was throughout, effective and VERY welcome. Bathroom facilities were more than adequate , although there were only 4 of us. The bath in the main bedroom is enormous! When we arrived, very late we were absolutely delighted. the pool lights were on and when we switched on the patio lights and saw the gourd light fittings it delighted us! The only thing I cannot really comment on is the cooking facilities as we never cooked! The villa is within 5 minutes walk of a number of restaurants and shops without having to go into town.If you decide to go to town, the choice of restaurants is overwhelming. It is difficult to name a favourite.I think the choice of food can influence that enormously. We ate places that we had heard bad things about and had lovely meals. If I had to recommend it would be Hanadan fine dining, Four Seasons (where the waiters entertain at 10pm with dancing) White House (although the front man is a little pushy), Caretta Caretta , Hidden Garden and a fish place I forget the name of in the next street to Hidden Garden.

Dalyan is lovely.To eat lunch/ breakfast by the river is a must. Watch out for the shoals of fish which you should feed and watch the boiling masses of them fighting for a nibble. Watch for turtles, both sea turtles and river turtles. Relax and watch the boats go by. Take a boat trip! We hired a private boat for only 100 TL for the day. He took us wherever we wanted and for another 80 to 100 TL fed us all with some of the best food we ate! We also used him one evening for a moonlight trip to the lake. Magical. We didn't go to the beach as we aren't keen, but have been before. It is a good beach! Go to the other end and visit the turtle sanctuary! Quite upsetting with the injuries, but you see them up close. overall HIGHLY RECCOMMENDED!

Excellent Villa Holiday

  • 5 of 5

We just came back from Dalyan after spending 10 fabulous days in this villa. Everything went perfect right from the time we booked until the end.

The villa was really clean, well looked after and has everything you would need in a house. Pool was cleaned daily and was large enough to have great fun. There is a bedroom downstairs so it would be suitable for elderly and people who could not climb up stairs.

We were out every evening strolling into the beautiful town centre of Dalyan, which takes 5 minutes, where you can find lots of great shops, bargains, restaurants, bars and agencies where you can book tours etc.

The owners Carole and Graham are lovely too and they were very helpful, always responding to queries promptly.

I am booking this villa next year too and would strongly recommend it.

The magnificent 3 mile Iztuzu beach is a 40 minute boat trip or 25 minute Dolmus (bus) ride from the town centre. There are small cafés at both ends of the protected beach and sun beds available for hire. The shallow water bay is ideal for all ages where you can walk out for 40 metres up to waist height.


Dalyan is a 35 minute taxi ride from Dalaman airport. Car, motor bike/scooter and bicycle hire available, although Dalyan can be explored by an easy walk and the local bus service (Dolmus) is excellent to get to other locations.

Excellent, great value, local restaurants. Supermarkets, shops and cafés within easy walking distance.
