Villa Hatira is located opposite a park and just 5 mins stroll from the end of the main street of Dalyan with its many shops, bars and restaurants. Enjoy the view of the famous rock tombs from the bedroom balconies or the veranda whilst enjoying that al fresco meal or watching the sunset over the nearby mountain. Or enjoy a barbecue on a warm evening whilst sitting in one of the 2 outside seating areas. The private garden has many fruit trees including lemon, banana, orange and olive as well as numerous flowering shrubs which make the garden at villa Hatira very private. Dalyan has much to offer the traveller whether you enjoy relaxing by the pool with a good book or 'strolling over history' at nearby Caunos with its Roman ruins. Or you may prefer to hire a boat and go out to sea to visit the many coves whilst enjoying a barbecue on board, or upstream to the lake to visit a nearby market with a stop at the sulphur baths and again a barbecue on board. Dalyan has it all.

About Vivien James
We started holidaying in Dalyan in 1992 and have never looked back. Our first property, villa Rahat, was purchased in 2000 along with the land that villa Hatira is built on. In 2003 we purchased Keci Evi which then was a local house with no facilities. The owners wanted to move into Dalyan so were happy to sell. Restoration started late in 2009 once all the permissions were obtained. We now own another beautiful home, one which we will eventually retire to. We hope all our guests will enjoy this wonderful place. This year we have now formed a company called Turkish Villa Holidays Ltd and are very excited about this and have started managing villas for owners other than ourselves hence Villa Yaz and Villa Yasemin. We still believe strongly in that personal touch.
Vivien James purchased this Villa in 2004
Why Vivien James chose Dalyan City Center
The land on which we built villa Hatira was in an ideal position, on the edge of Dalyan and yet only five minutes walk to the main street of Dalyan with all the shops, bars and restaurants. The promise of a park being built to the front of villa Hatira also appealed, better a park than villas we thought. No car is needed as everything is within walking distance of villa Hatira whether it's a boat trip out to sea or up to the lake, or a visit to the ancient city of Caunos located across the river from Dalyan and reached by rowing boat and a short walk.
