Our new luxury villa is the ideal base to explore all that Dalyan has to offer in fabulous surroundings . Villa Palmiye has been newly built in 2010 in the exclusive Maras area of Dalyan and fitted out for the2011 season with quality modern fixtures an fittings.Dalyan is a small town with extremely friendly locals,great restaurants,bars and shops and is very safe for children.We visited 10 years ago and have continued to love exploring! The surrounding countryside is a designated nature conservation site,has ancient rock tombs, a 6 kilometer long beach that is un-developed and has sea turtles,and an ancient city called Kaunos from the time of troy! A 40 kilometer long lake lies above Dalyan surrounded by mountains (like a larger version of the lake district with sun!) There are mud baths ,diving , sea ,river and lake fishing,mountain biking ,running , climbing, walking/trekking and of course boat trips to mention a few of the many activities available.
Alternitively the villa is the ideal base to relax with the pool/jacuzzi and the turkish Kosk seating/relaxing area and large lawn for games etc and we often do not venture far!
Villa Palmiye is the ideal luxury base for a carefree holiday and i am sure you will love it as much as we do!
