About D Lodge
We have been married for 20 years and have 2 teenage children. We live in North West England and both have very busy jobs. We have done a lot of travelling over the years and we wanted a place of our own where we could kick back and relax. We chose Turkey because it is such a beautiful and varied country. The food is great and the people are friendly. There is also so much to do in Turkey and the cost of living is considerably cheaper than the UK. However, the climate has to be the biggest attraction. With fantastic hot summers and short winters, it really is a wonderful place to be.
Why D Lodge chose Üzümlü
We chose Uzumlu as it is away from the hustle and bustle of the coastal resorts yet within very easy reach of a wide range of attractions as well as beautiful beaches. The villa is close to the laid back unspoilt village of Uzumlu but in a more peaceful location. We fell in love with the villa, it's position and the uninterrupted views across the valley. The landscape is truly breathtaking. The villa is one of six villas and therefore not isolated but due to it's front line position it offers privacy. It is south west facing and therefore benefits from the sunshine all day long. We were looking for a villa with a pool that was light, spacious and also had lots of outdoor space. We were so lucky to find Villa Maria, it really is so peaceful and relaxing, you don't want to go home!
What makes this Villa unique
Villa Maria has beautiful views from every window. It is almost 360 degree panoramic views and this is what we love about the villa. The pool is lovely to swim and cool down in and the steps into the pool are great to sit on and enjoy a relaxing drink or read a book. We love seeing the farmer bring his goats to graze on the land in front of the villa and watching the birds. It really is the best of both worlds, peace and tranquility in abundance yet a few minutes away all the amenities and restaurants and bars you may need.

Fantastic second time staying at Villa Maria
This is our second holiday. This time staying for 10 nights at Villa Maria.
The Villa is beautiful, well appointed and equipped to cater for our every need, providing real home from home comforts and set in a stunning location with unobstructed views across the countryside.
The village of Uzumulu is easily accessible (approx. 5 mins by car) and has a great selection of bars, restaurants, takeaways and supermarkets.
You can also take the trek or car journey from the village up to Cadianda which is a World Heritage site/Roman settlement.
The owner was very helpful and responsive to any questions and on arrival we were contacted by the local villa management company to ensure we had settled in.
I would not hesitate to recommend Villa Maria to family and friends and hope to return again next year.
It was great to welcome you back to Villa Maria. We are glad you had another wonderful holiday and that the stay was just as great second time around. Thank you for being such lovely guests and looking after our holiday home. It would be our pleasure to welcome you back again next year.
Beatiful Villa in a peaceful location
I could not recommend this villa more. The location is quite rural so a car is required, but for us this peacefulness and security was perfect especially with a young family.
The villa itself is spotless both inside and out, with great facilities and plenty of seating areas. We really enjoyed using the brick BBQ to cook on most nights. The pool area was cleaned / maintained daily which was great.
Inside the 3 bedrooms were perfectly appointed and far better than any villa I have stayed in before, the Wi-Fi and PS3 are great and helped keep our son entertained when inside.
Debbie was a great host, she answered any emails promptly with any questions we had during our stay and also gave us plenty of tips on local places to eat, drink, shop etc.
I would highly recommend this villa and will hopefully be able to stay again in the future.
Home from home - Fantastic villa
Excellent stay and Villa Maria. This villa definitely has the wow factor it is exactly as described. Beautifully maintained, the pool is not overlooked with plenty of seating areas for outdoor dining options including beautiful shaded areas. The villa offers uninterrupted views and is in a lovely location setting. The owner was extremely responsive and helpful with any questions asked. I am a young professional in my 20s and found plenty to do/visit. The nearby village (which is only 5 minutes away) had everything I needed to enjoy my stay with various dining options and well-stocked supermarkets. Would not hesitate to recommend to family and friends and have already requested a return trip booking for next year.
Wonderful holiday in paradise
Having stayed in quite a few villas in the past Villa Maria was a delightful surprise. Usually there is always something that is not quite right but Villa Maria proved to be outstanding. Everything was to the highest standard with more than adequate supplies of tableware cutlery etc. Inside all rooms were very well appointed and comfortable and outside space was vast. Lots of seating areas both in sun and shade giving opportunities for both sun and shade/quiet. The owners were a delight to deal with and most helpful. I would not hesitate to recommend this Villa and would love to stay again at some time in the future.
We are so glad that you had a relaxing and enjoyable holiday with all of your home comforts around you. It does get hot in the summer so it's great that there is the shade as well as the other areas to enjoy the sun. We look forward to welcoming you back in the future.
Wonderful stay at the beautiful Villa Maria
I can only echo the previous reviewers. This property is simply stunning, very well maintained and exactly as described. Beautiful location and lovely walks into the village at which you can buy all required provisions. The owners were very helpful and quick to respond to any queries. We had not hesitation in rebooking villa Maria and are very much looking forward to returning in September.
We are delighted that you had a lovely stay at Villa Maria. The villa is just as lovely in the winter as it is in the summer and I am sure the log burner helped you stay warm and cosy! We look forward to welcoming you in September when the weather will be very hot, you won't need the log burner but you will need the pool to cool down in!
Tennison family of Roos had a fantastic stay
All I can do is echo the comments left by the previous reviewers. After opening the front door we were greeted by a genuine WOW factor. The well decorated light and airy main living area with dining area and well equipped kitchen directly off, is a real class act. Our family of 4 were easily accommodated within the three lovely bedrooms, two with en-suite bathrooms. This was only bettered when you ventured outside onto an amazingly private patio with wonderful views. I have to admit, we spent a lot of time eating, drinking and talking at the 5 seater table there. The pool and further extra patio was the finishing touch to a magical setting. Uzumlu village is not a short walk but is very charming and well set up for bars, shops and restaurants. We hired a car for the 14 days and would say that this made access to the villa much easier. Top Tip. we bought a Turkish SD card for our Garmin Sat Nav on Amazon for about £30 and it paid for itself just on the drive from Dalaman Airport to the Villa in the dark. We drove to Fethiye many times as well as Olu Deniz, Saklikent Gorge and Pamukkale and had a great holiday. Cannot recommend it enough.
We are delighted that you had a great holiday and that you love the villa and it's setting as much as we do. A great idea about the SD card. Thank you for your kind words and we do hope that we can welcome you back one day to our holiday home.
