About Hannah Davies

We live just outside London and really enjoy the relaxing atmosphere that Dalyan offers. Not to mention the fab weather. In the sea in November! can't be bad.

Villa Teldrassil has everything that you need to enjoy a relaxing "home from home" holiday in the sun. 4 bedrooms, air con throughout, pool, private gardens and a very convenient location.

We hope you enjoy your stay.

Hannah Davies purchased this villa in 2008

Why Hannah Davies chose Lycian and Turquoise Coast

Villa Teldrassil is only a short 5 minute level walk from Dalyan town with its many restaurants, bars and shops. Where you can relax in the sun and watch Dalyan's many boats travelling up and down the river and Dalaman airport is a convenient 30 minute drive.

The town is set on a river that leads upstream to a beautiful freshwater lake (Lake Koycegis), where you can visit the local mud baths and hot springs, and downstream via a reed-filled delta to the sea and the famous Turtle Beach conservation area - home of the loggerhead turtles.

A short boat ride takes you to the famous Caunos mountain with its historic city ruins and amphitheatre and the ancient Lycian rock tombs carved into the mountain side, One of Dalyan's most famous features.

What makes this villa unique

Tourism in Turkey has increased in recent years but Dalyan retains is character as a small fishing town nestling on the river bank and it's strict planning regulations mean there are no buildings more than two storeys high, there are no high rise buildings or hotels anywhere to be seen. Everyone who visits remarks on how friendly and welcoming the local people are which probably explains why so many holiday makers return there on a regular basis.

Guestbook comments from the owner

New for Summer 2015! In response to our visitors comments we have installed a private patio garden with brick built BBQ away from the pool area, which can be accessed directly from the dining room or from the pool area. This now provides our guests with a more secluded spot for sun bathing and relaxing.

We have also installed air conditioning in every room.

Enjoyed our stay at Villa Teldrassil in August 2013 - great proximity to town, easy to walk to everything. Villa had everything we needed for our holiday. Warm welcome from Hannah who organised a boat trip for us. The whole family had a lovely time. Roy & Family

Lovely Villa, good communication with owner, easy to book, clean and welcoming with everything we needed. Stayed for a week in late August, really hot. Kids made full use of the pool. Never been to Dalyan before, nice town. Good bars and restaurants, reasonable prices. Would recommend to families. Anne, Michael, Chris & Rachel.

Comfortable villa.

  • 4 of 5

Couldn't believe that a villa with lots of kitchen appliances eg dishwasher,washing machine etc, wouldn't have a hair drier. Apart from that we found it very comfortable but the TV didn't work as there was no signal from the satellite dish. It was only a short walk into the centre of town with a great choice of restaurants,cafes and bars. My biggest gripe was the 6ft deep pool which for an unconfident swimmer such as myself was a big disappointment. On the Friday that we were there the pool was completely taken over by the Turkish family next door.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your review. We have now bought a new hairdryer for the villa, we do wish you would have told us and we would have brought one round straight away. The TV thank you we have now resolved this issue. Before booking i would recommend that you ask the villa owner / villa manger the depth of the pool before booking, for many familys this is a benefit to have a deep pool but seems like a negative for yourself. Please let us know in future and hopefully we can find something more suitable. Unfortunately villas on any shared complex there is a chance of others being in the pool, again next time you book we would recommend you go for a private villa to avoid this happening. We hope to see you again in the future. Best regards Villa Rentals Dalyan

Needs Updating

  • 2 of 5

Although we enjoyed our stay in Dalyan we did feel that the Villa was in need of some care and attention.

The top floor shower room had no ventilation or mirror. There was no hairdryer, several bulbs in the kitchen didn't work and the frying pan needs a decent burial. The ground floor shower room had no curtain round the tray.

Cooking was an interesting experience as the gas hob needed the gas bottle outside turned on. There was sufficient gas for us but the bottle seemed very light.

The key code had been changed and we couldn't get in when we arrived.

The pool however was good and the pool man came everyday to hose the surround and check the levels.

The bedding was clean and there were plentiful towels.

General cleaning was not really up to standard and I had to rewash every item of crockery and cutlery particularly the glasses which had red wine residue dried in them.

Dalyan is lovely and we shall be returning just not to this villa.

Owner's Response: We are very saddened to hear that the villa was not in the condition you expected. Thank you for letting us now. Ours is an older style property and as such does have some characterful quirks. Nonetheless, we pride ourselves on providing a clean, well-equipped holiday home for our guests and rely on our local agents to keep the villa clean, ready and equipped for our guests and to keep guests fully informed of any changes in accessing the property. With regards the gas. I’m afraid as there is no mains gas in Dalyan the external gas bottle for the cooker is common to a lot of properties. Please be assured we will address the issues you have raised immediately.

The property was well equiped and spacious

  • 3 of 5

We had a lovely holiday, the property was very nice. The pool was great and we had it to ourselves most of our stay, that was nice. I would only say that it was a shame the front area around the pool wasn't big enough, and there wasn't much shade in the afternoon. The shower upstairs in the main bathroom was excellent, but the downstairs shower didn't have a curtain around and was rather small. On the top floor the bedroom and shower room is really not suitable for adults, so I am glad we didn't need to use that room. Overall we were extremely comfortable at this property. We have been to Dalyan 5 times now, and although we were very happy with this villa, it wasn't in the area of Dalyan we most like. The property was clean and the air conditioning was fantastic, overall this property is a good one, it was safe and comfortable.

Nearest Airport
25 Kilometres
Car: not necessary

Villa location: as you come into Dalyan on the main road (Ataturk Blv) you pass a petrol station on the left hand side. Turn right (Ali Riza Cavus Sk) and first right again (Demirtaş Sk). Our villa is through the second set of gates on the right hand side. It is the last in a complex of three. We are approximately 5 minutes level walk into the center of Dalyan.

Special interest holidays:

Dalyan and the surrounding area is perfect for nature lovers and bird watchers, you can see around 95 different species of birds which include the colourful King Fisher, normally found around the Koycegiz Lake.


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 in 2010 and is one of the few natural breeding grounds of the beautiful Carreta Carreta sea turtle which can be seen. Over 6km of golden sands with access by bus, car and boat there are cafeterias at either end for refreshments but plenty of empty space amongst the dunes to escape to.


The nearest airport is Dalaman only a 25/30 minute drive away. Airport transfers can be arrange for you as well as car / cycle hire, boat tours and excursions. Please inquire when booking.

Dalyan itself is quite small and everything is within easy walking distance. Car hire is not essential but recommended if you would like to exploring further afield.


Everything is within walking or cycling distance in Dalyan. A five minute walk from Villa Teldrassil will take you into the main town with its many lovely 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 and so on. Fethiye and Olu Deniz are 50 minutes drive away. Marmaris is about 75 minutes drive, both of which have ferries to Rhodes.

Further Details:

There are many activities available 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 along the coast. Sailing, sea kayaking & white water rafting and diving & snorkelling in clear waters through caves and an abundance of marine life. Horse riding is also available. Excursions can be booked for you.

Dalyan town itself is compact stretching only a mile in any direction from the center 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. Dalyan is also distinguished by the lack of package tourists though there are still plenty of bars and restaurants to cater for all tastes. There is a market on Saturday’s selling local produce, clothing and tourist items.

The town has a bank, ATMs a post office a number of well stocked supermarkets centred around the town square. Also the Dolmus (bus) offers trips to surrounding attractions. The riverside offers plenty of places to sit and watch the boats or you can take a relaxing walk along the the river or cross the river to Kaunos tombs and amphitheatre. Boats can take you to the beach or on moonlight cruises to the lake, crab fishing and turtle feeding. For the more adventurous there are walking tours, scuba diving and microlight flights. There are also hot springs and mud baths at the nearby Koycegiz lake.
