Light of Apollon, inspired by Apollon, the god of light, is part of a larger project in which each house is dedicated to a different virtue of this Greek God, with his wisdom and culture, the divine Lord of this region; Lykia/Anatolia. Each villa has a separate specific theme that is related and represented with a post-modernistic statue, signed Emre Basoglu. Light of Apollon, located in the Arikbasi region of Dalyan, is only 5 minutes drive away from the city centre and 10 minutes drive from the Iztuzu beach.If privacy is your preference, the villa is an ideal get away location with its fishing pond, a natural lagoon connected to the Sulungur lake that is suitable for eel fishing, its real sea-sand beach that is for the exclusive use of the villa guests. 3000 m2 vineyard of the villa is also open the use of guests. With the excitement in the project, the exclusivity of the surroundings and the unique experience it offers to guests, Light of Apollon is one of its kind in Dalyan.

About Murat Ozbilgi
Apollon villas is a joint dream we’ve had with my friends in business; Mustafa Kemal Akpinar, architect, our contracting constructor Erdem Korkut and Emre Basoglu the academic sculptor, who I enjoy very much working with. Light of Apollon is the first villa of this series and is dedicated to the light that the Greek God Apollon has ever shed on this land since the times of Homer as we know it. All virtues of Apollon have been the basis of culture here in this land of Lycia, various nations and various people. Our project is a series of villas each of which is dedicated to one of the virtues of Apollon, Light of Apollon being the first to accept guests in 2013 season. Murat Z.

Murat Ozbilgi purchased this Villa in 2012
Why Murat Ozbilgi chose Ortaca
Dalyan is the homeland of Apollon, our source of inspiration, the God of wisdom, light, love and poetry, master of music, healing and various nations of the land Lycia in history. Kaunos, Apollon's supposed grandson fled Miletos to build this ancient city which has then become the misery of his sister Byblis. With its beautiful sceneries, wonderful nature offering the best beach of the Turkish coasts, high rising mountains, spring waters, its beautiful people; one has a hard time not falling in love with this little town, Dalyan.
What makes this Villa unique
Light of Apollon is not your average luxurious Dalyan villa. This villa offers total exclusivity in an elegant set up. Your own fishing experience, your own sea-sand beach, chill out moments at the roof terrace, family gatherings at the huge sun-deck, late evening parties around the lagoon and of course long walks around in the rural, including the villa's own vineyard.
Pool / Spa
Cancelled bookings will not receive a refund.
Nice stay and quite area
The villa is very big and there are plenty of rooms and bathrooms for 2 persons. You could easly fit 8 people with kids there. The pool is nice and private. The guy who delivered the key lived close by and was very helpful with everything.
The villa was already going through some renovation from the outside. However the furniture inside need to be changed mainly in the living room. The villa deserve a better and modern furnitures inside. We bought fresh meat and grilled most days at the villa and ate our breakfast on the balcony daily.
The city of Dalman is just what we wanted small, quite and beautiful. Very few turists due the time of the year. We rented a car and drove around. Would recommend the same.
If the inside of the villa gets an update I would give it 5 stars.
Staying at Light of Apollon was a great experience for me. The villa has all kinds of equipment available for daily needs.
Also it's placed in a secluded place and there are no overlooking houses, especially to the pool. So me and my family had a great time by the pool.
Thank you once again!
