About the property

Three bedroomed private villa with A/C, wifi, pool, gardens,overlooking a park

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.

Free wifi will be available from 2013

For those who are eager to be more active there is plenty to do from visiting markets, hiring a boat for the day to visit the lake or many coves out to sea, canoeing along the river, mountain biking, bird watching, white water rafting, moonlight cruises, jeep safaris and much more. A folder of trips is available at Villa Hatira as is a good selection of games and novels as well as a DVD player.

Dalaman airport is the local airport and is only 25 minutes from Dalyan. Flying time form the UK is about 3.5 hours and flights leave from most regional airports. Please note that Villa Hatira is a non smoking house and that we also ask guests to remove their shoes in line with Turkish tradition.

About Mrs Vivien James

Rob and I first visited Dalyan 23 years ago and fell in love with its charm.

We purchased our first property and the land that villa Hatira is bulit on 12 years ago. Since then we have renovated a single storey property in the hills near to Dalyan and have jointly purchased two further properties all of which we now market through our own company and web site. We have also travelled extensively throughout Turkey and find it a wonderful country.

Why Mrs Vivien James chose Dalyan

Villa Hatira was designed by us with the help of a local builder. The location is perfect with a park opposite and only a short distance to the centre of Dalyan.

What makes this villa unique

Villa Hatira is located in a prime area of Dalyan where building density is strictly controlled and yet it is ideally situated to the main street of Dalyan.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Although it's always nice to be home we genuinely didn't want to leave Hatira or Dalyan at the end of our holiday as we had such a wonderful time there.

Your villa is beautiful and suited our needs perfectly. There really isn't anything of relevance that we didn't like about it and there were many things that we really loved about it. We will always remember our stay there (for all the right reasons) and for that I thank you so much for allowing us to rent it from you both.

We would have no hesitation in recommending Villa Hatira to anyone and would have no second thoughts about returning there in the future. We loved the fact that its location was so peaceful (apart from the very minor niggle of the pied wagtail "alarm clock" first thing in the mornings) yet we love the fact that that access to the buzzing evening life of Dalyan was only a stones throw away. We also liked the fact that that there were so many riverside restaurants within easy walking access that enabled one to eat out comfortably due to the breeze along the waterfront which offset the heat of the night. We were also very impressed by the friendliness of every one of the locals that we met wherever we went, be it around the town, on the private river and lake boats or whilst cycling out in the region.

I've been spoilt

  • 5 of 5

we've stayed in a number of villas in turkey and various other parts of the world and looking back this place is a pain in the butt; as it has spoiled us, we're now trying to match this place and we're struggling. Being honest we stayed in 2013 not 14 but i couldn't select this date and was reminiscing about Villa Hatira and couldn't believe we didn't do a review at the time. the villa and Dalyan is for me and my wife simply paradise. the villa is spacious, beautiful and ideally located for Dalyan. Dalyan is great it has everything you need great bars and restaurants plenty of excursion companies (recommend Kaunos and the jeep safari).

The best recommendation i can give is that we'd love to by the place if we could!!

Spacious, comfortable and relaxing

  • 5 of 5

A lovely villa, which plenty of space of relax both inside and out. The pool, and particularly the outside jacuzzi were great. We booked through Owners Direct, but a Turkish agent worked with the owners and provided helpful advice and organised trips which were great. The location of the Villa was perfect; far enough away from the action to be quiet, but within easy walking distance of shops, bars and restaurants. Highly recommended!

Fantastic Holiday at Villa Haitira

  • 5 of 5

We were collected by the agents travel representatives at the airport and everything went smoothly, on arrival at the villa first impressions were excellent, lovely big pool, with shaded area's for eating, sleeping and reading eith enough sun loungers for 6 of us (which was important) modern kitchen, bathrooms, very spacious bedrooms and wonderful air conditioning - we couldn't recommend the villa more! There is a great little park opposite that has a little cafe and does the most amazing pancakes (sweet and savoury) which they will deliver to the villa! Dalyan is only a 5 minute walk away with lovely restaurants and some interesting shops. We had a day on the boat, seeing turtles, crab fishing and going to the mud baths which was the highlight of our holiday! Hope to go back one day.

Fantastic holiday

  • 5 of 5

Villa Hatira totally exceeded our expectations- it was absolutely fantastic. The villa itself is stylish, comfortable and child friendly and the garden area and pool are stunning. We have 3 young kids and the location was great, they could manage the stroll to town and when we did manage to lure them out of the pool, the playground opposite was handy. We will definitely return.

Car: not necessary

Dalyan lies at the centre of a broad river delta and nestles beside the Dalyan River which links Lake Koycegiz to the Mediterranean. Dramatic mountains and rolling pine clad hills form an impressive backdrop.

Itzuzu beach lies 7 miles by road or river cruise. The impressive sand bar stretches for nearly 3 miles and is one of the last nesting sites in the Mediterranean for the Loggerhead Turtle and therefore is a highly ptotected area.

There are numerous trips and excursions from Dalyan that can be booked locally. A file with details of these is available at villa Hatira. The area caters for all that is needed whether you just wish to relax by the pool or want something more adventurous like mountain biking or white water rafting.

The numerous ancient sites provide for those who like to 'walk over history' and the countryside provides excellant opportunities for those who wish to walk or watch the numerous species of bird both on the river, in the reeds or on the lake.
