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 2003

Why Vivien James chose Ortaca

Keci Evi was a very basic village house with no facilities, however the views sold it to use despite the amount of renovation work that would be needed.

The owners were getting elderly and were keen to sell in order to move into Dalyan. So a purchase was agreed and renovations started in December 2008 after obtaining the relevant permissions. The area surrounding Keci Evi is protected so a sympathetic restoration was needed which we feel we have achieved.

Keci Evi is set in a very rural area and so a car is needed. The nearest shop is two minutes away as is the nearest restaurant. the wonderful beach is five minutes away.

What makes this villa unique

Perfect relaxation is the key to a stay at Keci Evi. Warm weather, wonderful views, a large private garden, pool, terraces and a BBQ, good food as well as walks in the woods make for a perfect holiday for those who enjoy a rural location.
