About Malcolm

The villa was designed and built by me to be used as my future winter home.

After spending many holidays in villas I hope I have picked the best features of each and incorporated them in mine. to suit the needs of all who use it.

Malcolm purchased this villa in 2011

Why Malcolm chose Dalyan

After holidaying in Dalyan I knew I would return again and again.

Its location being within an area of natural outstanding beauty with protected wildlife makes it perfect for all.

What makes this villa unique

As the villa was designed and built by me, with me and my family's needs in mind I have found my little piece of paradise.

The villa offers a unique position in being close to town but located in a quiet residential area. The villa and gardens are maturing now with every year and it looks well established. I have added some personal touches to the villa by adding antique Turkish rugs throughout and putting a few pictures on the walls. Extra lights have been added to the terrace and a BBQ spotlight has been fitted. The hammock in the garden I have decided was the best thing ever. I hope you enjoy these improvements as much as I do.

Upon receipt of an enquiry I will telephone you to ensure it is authentic. I will then reply with email. Please do not spam me. You will be marked as spam if you do.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Jayne C July 2012

River Cottage is a very smart villa. All the furnishings are modern and high quality. The 4 bedroom layout is perfect for two families and each room has its own dressing room and bathroom so there's plenty of space. The pool is fantastic, with a jacuzzi We had a lovely first villa experience.

Teresa C August 2012.

Well, what a fab holiday! The villa was beautiful and the photos did not do it justice! River Cottage is a villa of the very highest standard (and we have rented many over the past 20 years!) it is in an ideal location. The villa is very comfortable and modern and the bathrooms particularly are finished to an excellent standard. What cannot be underestimated is that the excellent inclusive airport transfers coupled with the villa location meant that we did not need a car, which added to the relaxation. We loved Dalyan and will return and River Cottage has set the bar so high, it's the only place we would stay. Well done Malcolm.

Fantastic villa,perfect location

  • 5 of 5

We can't fault this villa at all (other than the lack of full length mirrors,as we were party of mostly women!) but we knew this before we travelled,and all shared the one on the landing,a minor inconvenience!

Malcolm was so helpful before we even left the UK,answering all the questions we had nothing was to much trouble. The airport transfers were arranged by Malcolm in advance,and went perfectly.The key exchange was hassle free and there were a few food items and drinks in the fridge on arrival,which was very much appreciated. It was very reassuring having Ahmet, the villa manager next door,although we didn't need to contact him during our stay.

The villa is beautiful and we felt very at home,everything you need is there,even a water cooler,which was fantastic,just a phone call and a water bottle would be delivered in about 10 minutes! We spent all our time by the pool,which is a fantastic size and well maintained (early every morning) so as not to disturb your afternoon swim!

Dalyan itself is just stunning,this was my 4th time,and will be going back again next year! The villa is very easy walking distance to shops,restaurants and the river,some being literally just round the corner (couple minutes walk) very handy when you're drained from the heat and all the swimming! 2 supermarkets within 5-8 mins walk,both well stocked and good prices.

I would have no problem recommending this villa,loved every minute of our stay.Thank you Malcolm.

Fantastic villa, beautiful location

  • 5 of 5

We had a fabulous holiday, the villa is perfect and of a very high standard. Location is great and only 10 min walk into the town, where you find some great restaurants and water taxi to the beach. I would highly recommend this and Malcolm the owner has looked after us from booking the villa and arranging the transfers. Thanks Malcolm and will be using your villa again. Anil London

Perfect Villa!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in this beautiful villa for 9 days in September and could not fault it at all. We have visited Dalyan for 10 years and this is the best villa we have stayed in – it’s as lovely as it looks on the photos.

Malcolm the owner was very helpful from day one and the agency was easily contactable during our stay. The villa is perfectly located in a quiet street, yet only a few minutes’ walk to the town and all the restaurants and bars.

The pool area is amazing and the terrace is perfect for sitting out in the evenings – it’s all very private and you don’t feel overlooked at all.

The villa was very secure and has an alarm which adds peace of mind, and all the rooms are spacious with ensuite and aircon.

Thank you for a wonderful stay – we would not hesitate to recommend this villa to anyone visiting Dalyan.

A wonderful villa for a family holiday

  • 5 of 5

This fabulous villa has everything you could want for a wonderful family holiday. The 4 lovely bedrooms all have en-suite, huge walk in wardrobes, air con and beautiful views.

Spacious open plan living downstairs meant the 7 of us in this villa always had space to relax without encroaching on anyone else.

Sitting outdoors area with its traditional cushioned area and table and chairs is a lovely way to spend the evening having a chilled drink. The pool and jacuzzi were well used both day and night.

Being only a 5 min walk to town meant you had the best of both worlds, the hustle and bustle of Dalyan with its vibrant cafes and restaurants or the peace and quiet of the villa.

The beach is a tranquil 20 min boat ride away through the rushes where if lucky you will see the turtles.

I cannot recommend this villa enough, Malcolm the owner also includes private transfers to and from the airport at no extra cost to yourselves. The perfect way to start and end your time in this fabulous villa.

Catch the row boat ferry then a 25 minute walk or take a boat downstream then a 15 minute walk. Car and bike hire is also available locally.
