The 'Mill' is a very uniquely designed villa nestling under a mountain on the edge of the wonderful Turkish town of Dalyan. Its quiet location is perfect for a tranquil holiday but near enough to enjoy the bars and restaurants of the town. Dalyan is famous not only for the much photographed rock tombs and the ancient ruined city of Kaunos but also, as a result of Sting, David Belamy and Dustin Hoffman fighting for the preservation of the beach for the Loggerhead Turtle, it is a nature reserve and World Wildlife Heritage Centre. No building is now allowed over 2 stories high so no big apartment blocks & high rise hotels here. As a result Dalyan has retained a lovely Turkish feel. The river and nearby large lake make days out on boats to visit the mud baths and Turtle Beach essential. However if all you want to do is relax, Karadag Mountain Mill is perfect. Next to the pool there are cushioned sun beds and a bar complete with fridge, spirit optics and an ice making machine, BBQ and WC.
A quiet row of 5 individual villas, all in 3,500m² of land with the mountain at the rear and lemon and pomegranate orchards at the front. The local baker is on the main road is 5 minutes away and the bread is fresh and fantastic. There are two ways into the town and on the 25 minute walk both offer shops an restaurants. Taxi hire is cheap and I also leave 2 mountain bikes and a tandem for those interested. Cycle hire is available in the town. Dalyan is in a basin surrounded by mountains so great walks and bike rides. In and around town is flat but over to the beach and round the lake, etc, requires greater fitness levels. Some restaurants that offer collect and drive home are noted. One you sit over the waterfalls and eat fresh trout, another in tree top nests in a wonderful landscaped garden. A rowing boat across the river takes you to the ruined city of Kaunos. There's a number of markets, mud and sulphur baths, gorge walks, and many river trips, crab fishing, snorkelling, diving, etc.
