Welcome to Villa Hatira.
Our house is set in one of Turkey's most treasured conservation areas famous for the nesting site of the Loggerhead Turtle and the Nile River Turtle. Villa Hatira itself is only 5 minutes gentle walk to the centre of Dalyan with its many bars, shops and restaurants, and overlooks a park and the famous Lycian rock tombs.
Villa Hatira has been finished to a high standard with three spacious ensuite bedrooms accomodating six guests. The two double bedrooms have their own balconies that overlook the private pool, garden and park beyond.
Villa Hatira sleeps six in two double and one twin room all with their own en-suite shower rooms. The two double rooms also have their own balconies overlooking the park and tombs and the private swimming pool. All the bedrooms air conditioning, as well as insect nets to all windows so that the bedroom windows can be left open at night so benefiting from the cooling breeze.
Downstairs there is a large air conditioned open plan living area which includes a well equipped modern kitchen with dish washer, washing machine, full sized cooker, gas hob and fridge with freezer compartment. The dining area accomodates 6 as does the lounge and both lead onto the large veranda which again overlooks the park and tombs and the pool, the best place to be to watch the sunset. Inside there is also a sunken Turkish seating area set around an Ottoman stone fireplace.
Outside, enjoy breakfast on the veranda overlooking the tombs whilst watching the birds come down to drink at the large private pool. You may then wish to have a cooling dip in the pool or jacuzzi followed by a b b q lunch and a siesta in the covered outside seating area. The perfect way to relax.
