About Stephen Smith
Villa Felicita is owned by myself and my wife. I am a retired Chartered Surveyor having spent the bulk of my career working for the Inland Revenue. We intend to live in Dalyan to avoid the UK winters (definitely getting colder) and aim to come back to the UK from May to the end of September. We have three sons, all of whom have flown the nest (what joy!). We have 5 grandchildren and can't wait for them to have the opportunity of visiting us in Dalyan outside of the peak times The Villa was not purchased as a holiday home, it is our home but will be available to rent during the times when we are in the UK, obviously to help defray the costs of ownership. Despite my attempts to stop my wife spending too much money on the finishes she just went ahead!
Stephen Smith purchased this Villa in 2007
Why Stephen Smith chose Dalyan
We went to Turkey for the first time on holiday in September 2007. We had, like many people, dreamed of owning a property abroad but never did anything about it. We had been in Dalyan for about half an hour when my wife said:" I'd like to live here". I did something I would never advise one of my clients to do, I agreed to purchase the land and have a villa built, all this on my first holiday in Turkey. It turned out to be one of the best decisions I ever made, by sheer luck it is in the most exclusive area of Dalyan (Maras). It is in a quiet peaceful area but the town centre and all facilities are within an easy, flat, 10-15 minute walk.
Pool / Spa
Over quite a few years we have stayed in various villas around Turkey but must say that villa Felicita is one of the very best. It is in a very peaceful location but with views of the rock tombs this is a bonus.It is only about 10 minutes from shops bars and restaurants and all on the level.The villa is well equipped with everything you need for a wonderful holiday.The pool and jacuzzi are the icing on the cake. Can't wait to go back.
Coast/Beach: Dalyan is situated in a conservation area and the world famous (voted in the Times as one of the top 10 beaches in the world) Istuzu beach (Turtle beach) is within 30 minutes by boat travelling through the reed beds admiring the wild life. The beach is approximately 15 minutes by car. Opposite the villas on the opposite bank of the river is the ancient city of Caunos and the Lyceum Rock Tombs. Travel: Dalaman is the nearest airport, approximately 25 minutes away by car. A car is not needed in Dalyan, everything is within easy walking distance.
