They say location is everything...... Set in the small village of Gokbel in the foothills outside Dalyan with stunning views across the valley to the lake, beach, sea and a backdrop of mountains - the villa definitely has the wow factor in an oasis of peace and relaxation.
The small village of Gokbel is very much considered the jewel in the crown on this beautiful coastline and that is also by the locals.
Whilst traditionally built the villa has a modern spacious feel with the double bedrooms opening out onto a large balcony that runs across the width of the villa and gives gated access to the private swimming pool
The downstairs is one large open plan area with spacious kitchen, dining table for 8 and two sitting areas with french doors opening onto the S/W facing veranda. To sit drink in hand and watch the sunset hmmm.
Outside there is a barbecue, separate covered seating area and shower. A terraced garden with a wide selection of fruit trees, pick white mulberries to put on your muesli - yummy
You may find it convenient to hire a car or scooter
Sleeping 6 this fully air conditioned villa with its private pool is an ideal retreat from the hustle and bustle of life. The conversion of Cicek Evi was finished in 2007. We have tried to keep the villa as Turkish as possible and have used local builders and craftsmen. This is our home it has not been built as a commercial venture.
The double bedrooms open out onto a large balcony that runs across the width of the villa and gives gated access to the swimming pool. The downstairs is one large open plan area with a spacious kitchen, dining table for 8 people and two sitting areas; a stone fire place for a cosy autumn evening. French doors open out onto the S/W facing veranda which mirrors the balcony. To sit, drink in hand and watch the sunset hmmm.
Outside there is a barbecue, separate covered seating area, sun lounges an outside shower and terraced garden with a wide selection of fruit trees including white mulberries, pomegranates, lemons, oranges and grapes.
Dalyan is situated on a pretty reed river in a conservation area famous for the loggerhead turtle and Iztuzu beach - visitors come back year after year, it is very special offering sea, lake, good food, and very friendly locals.
The season can spread well into November although most of the tourists have gone by then. February I have swum in the sea and the wild flowers are lovely. April and May are the best for the orchards of oranges/grapefruit and lemons and September/October they are picking pomegranates. May the turtles are laying their eggs, which are carefully protected.
