About the property

Quiet location PRIVATE pool-5 mins to town. No hidden booking fee whatso ever!

Villa Garcia could be your exclusive deluxe and detached 3 bedroomed private villa situated near the centre of Dalyan but in a quiet location and set away from bars etc. Your Villa is surrounded by a private garden with your own large private, (no one else sharing your facilities here!), swimming pool to swim or just to cool off. With an outdoor shower to freshen up ready to sun bathe some more. The garden is a mix of mature fruit trees (peach, oranges lemons etc) and flowering shrubs with it's own Kosh (Turkish covered seating) all adding up to give a secluded private atmosphere. Please view our photos to get a better feel for the Villa as it is difficult to do Villa Garcia's features full justice. Villa Garcia is only a 5 minute walk to the centre of town where you can shop, dine out, have a cay(tea) or stroll along the river, visit the spa or gym, take the boat over the river and walk among the Lycian tombs and ancient ruins or just relax. Back inside your villa you'll have every modern convenience including FREE Wi fi access, a 65" LED TV and DVD player, satellite and internet TV with English and sports channels and sound system. FREE Air Con. throughout and everything needed in a modern kitchen. There is a land line phone in the property for taxis and so loved ones (or even work companions) can keep in touch from home etc. There is a downstairs cloakroom/WC. Upstairs:large open landing leading to 3 large double bedrooms (one has single beds to use for children or can be put together as a double). We also have a FREE Baby cot and bedding if needed ( most Villas and apartments will charge for this service). there is a master en-suite and a separate family boutique style jacuzzi bath and separate jacuzzi shower! Large balcony to the rear access from each bedroom and overlooking your own private pool area with the mountains in the distance. You can relax out of the sun with a coffee and breakfast in the morning or a glass of wine at the end of the day. All these areas within 1 hour drive/bus- Gocek, Fethiye, Marmaris, Mugla, Icemeler, Turunc, Koycegiz Lake, Olu Deniz beach and para gliding etc.

You could be one of our many guests that return again often for an important anniversary or even for a honeymoon as two of our guests did last year!

And best of all you won't pay a penny more than our stated price no hidden booking fees, or cleaning fees even our transfers are provided FREE if you book before the end of 2017. You'll only pay more if you're having such a good time you decide to stay longer as many do!!!!

About Gary

We bought in Dalyan 2009 year after holidaying here for the previous 5 years. We have been to many other areas of Turkey but kept returning to Dalyan. The reason being we feel in love with the relaxed pace of the people and the area. Since then it was our goal to buy a property here and we were lucky enough to do so. Since then we have done our utmost to participate in Turkish life here and try to get everything we can from our change of life. We have spent a lot of time and money on the Villa to make it as luxurious as possible without losing a homely feel which I 'm sure you will notice and enjoy when you come to stay.

Gary purchased this villa in 2009

Why Gary chose Dalyan

Dalyan has just enough of everything without becoming too big. There are no 'high rise' buildings here regulation prohibit more than 2 storeys. there is a river running through it and about 15mins by road to a long protected and award winning Iztuzu (Turtle) beach no building at all allowed here due to its protected nature, all you will see are mountains to the back of the beach, the river delta to one side and of course the Mediterranean Sea in front of you .

There are many restaurants catering for all tastes 'posh' coffee houses or simple Turkish Cay gardens to enjoy along the river or in the town square -though you won't find the likes of Mc Donalds here. Dalyan and the surrounding areas are ideal for trekking though the hills and forests or along the beach or even viewing historical sites in fact all of this can be done on the same day. There are many holiday resorts within an hour of Dalyan like Marmaris Gocek and Fethiye Olu Deniz beach (or para gliding )if you want a change of pace and many tourist attractions like Saklikent Gorge.

What makes this villa unique

The property is snuggly hidden away but only 5 mins or so from town, and on a cul de sac so there is no through traffic. We have our own private pool (a absolute must in summer). We are a modern couple so as you can see from the photos the villa has a contemporary feel with all mod. cons. including FREE Wi-Fi a 65" LED TV with English TV and satellite system, and a DVD with loads of films in case you fancy a night in and a bottle of wine.There is also a land line phone in the property for taxis, or so loved ones (or even work companions) can keep in touch from home etc.

We have recently fitted new luxury bathrooms to relax before your evening meal out or by the BBQ followed by a private (no shared facilities here) evening swim in the moonlight-no hotel curfew swim times to work too. During the summer months you'll want to spend your time out of doors and the villa has covered and shaded areas as well as sun bathing areas by the pool side. Best of all this a not just a 'holiday let' Villa but our home for the winter months, so you can be assured all the amenities are top notch and well maintained. There is also a baby cot with bedding for young family members all as part of the price no expensive extras charged.

FANTASTIC!!!

  • 5 of 5

Well where do I start. We were a party of 2 couples looking for relaxation and a bit of luxury in a convenient location for the town. We certainly got that and more at Villa Garcia. The thought that has gone into everything in this Villa is outstanding, the moment we walked through the door the "Wow" factor hit us, it is superbly equipped with everything you would have to hand at home and beautifully furnished with all mod cons. The outdoor area is fantastic with a really impressive sized swimming pool with comfortable sun loungers and plenty of parasols if you prefer the shade and so peacefully located. The terrace area is huge with 4 comfortable relaxer chairs and a dining table and 6 chairs, and with having the brick built BBQ at the side of the pool, and 2 superb butchers a couple of minutes away, needless to say, we spent quite a few nights sitting on there with our V & T's enjoying the views of the mountains. However, for having all that peace and quiet, it really is just a 5 minute stroll to the local supermarket and local shops including a British store if you feel the need, then a further 5 minute stroll and you are on the river or in the centre of town with a multitude of bars and restaurants to choose from, no need for the hassle of a car or taxis here. Added to that is the free (and extremely efficient) Wifi, in-room safe and the convenient option of delivery of huge bottles of water with a pump provided for dispensing. We have stayed in many private Villas all over the world over the past 15 years or so and can only say that we agreed that this has been the best ever and as Dalyan itself is such a gorgeous place with such friendly people and an abundance of things to do, I can only say, "go for it". Only been home a week and booked again for next year. Thanks Gary and Patricia.

Villa with everything you need

  • 5 of 5

We have been to Dalyan around 9 times and stayed in several villas and we have to say that Villa Garcia has been the best so far - it has everything you could wish for. We particularly enjoyed sitting out on the veranda which had lovely comfy seats, not to mention the fab jacuzzi shower in the family wet room.

It is ideally situated with just a short walk into town, yet far enough away to have lots of peace and quiet relaxation.

FABULOUS VILLA

  • 5 of 5

We had a fabulous stay in this villa. Beautifully furnished throughout. All mod cons catered for including the entertainment systems.

Our two teenage children made excellent use of the large pool, bikes and chilled out in the shady areas!

Each evening the 5-10 min stroll into Dalyan to have dinner was enjoyable and easy - even in flip flops! The large local supermarket (less than 5 min walk away) catered for everything we needed!

All in all a very relaxed and hassle free holiday.

Thank you Gary and Patricia for making it an easy, chilled and relaxed place to come and stay. We will definitely book again in the future!

Everything you need in a home from home

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay at Villa Garcia. You were a perfect host. Not often you get to see the owner multi tasking *:) happy. The villa had all the amenities, home touches and more than anyone could ask for. I may have spent a little longer than I should watching the enormous TV and the many movies recorded. We picked your villa because of its specification and also its location, we enjoyed the short walk into town every evening. It is ideally situated for the shops, restaurants and weekend market. The pool was ideal for us and we swam morning, noon and early evenings. Having two bikes to use was an added bonus and allowed us to cycle out and get a full Turkish breakfast and realise how little cycling we normally do. Getting the water delivered is a great bonus.

We have been trying to see if there are any areas for improvement but we can't think of any.

Special interest holidays:

There are many activities for you to try such as trekking through the mountains, cycling and jeep safaris; sunrise or moon light boat cruises for fishing or turtle watching, tours to various islands or just crusing along the coast. Sailing, sea kayaking & white water rafting scuba diving and diving & snorkelling in clear waters through caves and an abundance of marine life. Horse riding is also available for the more adventurous. There are a number of great walks to be done in the local area; from the walk up to Candir and Kaunos over stunning mountains and rock tombs, to the Liquid Amber Forests of Dalyan.The Famous Lykian Way walk of 300+km across the southern coast of Turkey. There are also natural mud baths hot springs and 2 spas in Dalyan if you're looking for that lazy and self indulgent holiday. And of course trips to all other attractions like Marmaris/Icemeler with its nightlife swimming with dolphins, shopping, watersports or Saclikent natural gourge- the list goes on!

Coast/Beach:

Dalyan is best known for its lush greenery, the winding river and a beach which is not just a natural wonder but also won The Times Best Open Space Award. Over 6km of golden sands with access by bus, car and boat there are cafes at either end and plenty of empty space amongst the dunes, along the beach and a lake backing onto the beach! (see view photos) to escape to. There is also a small lake for picnics etc on the way to the beach and a huge lake (Koycegiz lake) with mud baths and hotsprings.

Travel:

The nearest airport is Dalaman which is a 30 minutes drive away. Once in Dalyan car hire is not essential as you'll be near to town but available should you want it.

The town itself has plenty of shops, bars and places to dine/drink everything from very cheap Turkish style cafes to al la carte restaurants, to 'posh' coffee shops for that Café culture, all available and all within easy walking distance.

There are if you wish a number of hire shops for cars, scooters, quad bikes and bicycles.

Distances:

Everything is within walking or cycling distance in Dalyan.

Garcia Villa is only10 minutes walk to restaurants, bars, cafes and the riverboats that you take to the beach or the ruins of Kaunos with its amphitheatre and ancient Lycian rock tombs, the mud baths, sea fishing etc or use the Dolmus (bus) to go shopping further afield.

Fethiye and Olu Deniz are 50 minutes drive/bus away.

Marmaris /Icemeler are about 60 minutes drive/bus, where you can take ferries to the Greek island of Rhodes.

Further Details:

Dalyan town itself is compact stretching only a mile in any direction from the centre and is framed by a glorious backdrop of pine clad mountains in every direction. The flatness of town makes it a perfect place for walking with children or the elderly and it is a delight to cycle around. For more active holidaymakers there are forests and hiking hills all within walking distance Including Kaunos ruins.

Dalyan though classed as a village has grown in recent years to include plenty of bars and restaurants to cater for all tastes and wallets. There is a market on Saturdays selling local produce, clothing and tourist items. The town has a bank, ATMs a post office a number of well stocked supermarkets (the closet only 5 mins away from the villa) centred around the town square. Also the Dolmus (bus) area for trips to surrounding attractions and only 50 metres from there to the riverside to sit by boats or you can take a relaxing walk along the the river or cross the river on a row boat (rowed for you!) to Kanos tombs and amphitheatre. The boats can take you to the beach or on moonlight cruises to the lake, crab fishing and turtle feeding or out to sea for the more adventurous fisherman. There are walking tours, scuba dives or microlight flights and paragliding at nearby Olu Deniz.

There is also hotsprings and mud baths at the Koycegiz lake and two new spa/well being centres including mud baths, Turkish baths, gym, sauna, steam room, pools and of course a lots of bars!

Or you could even just relax!
