first timer needs advice!

Hi we are regulars to Turkey (Calis) but have decided to try Dalyan after hearing many good things. The villas we fancy (12 of us in total), are Villa Chamuel and Villa Gabriel. these are 2 identical 4 bed villas next to each other. I do not know the address and wondered if anybody here actuall knew of their location and if it would be possible to walk to bars/resturaunts in under 20 mins or so? any other tips would be appreciated. we have ages ranging from 70 down to 5 in our group!!! we cannot wait to try Dalyan. thanks Jan

Hi jan,

Likewise, i'm not familiar with these villas but most accommodation in Dalyan is within a 15 minute walk from the centre (unless it particularly states that its further away in the outskirts) and you'll probably find plenty of shops, bars, restaurants etc even closer.

Dalyan has so much to offer all ages and one of the best things about the town is how flat and easy to get around it is...its a fantastic choice for a family holiday!

Hi Jan,

Am sure you will come back with a case of Dalayanitis like the rest of us.

We discovered Dalayn after visits to Hisaronou and Calis. As soon as we stepped on to the road near the market on our first morning we just knew that Dalyan was our sort of place!! An promptly fell in love with it.

It's our 3rd time this summer and without sounding cheesy - it does feel like you're going home.

Have a fab time and if I can be of any help pls ask, although am defo no expert ha ha. There are some real experts on this forum and everyone is really friendly so ask away if u need to.

Get those villas booked!!

Janice xx

You will absolutely love Dalyan, we first went in 2011 with our two young children and haven't looked back, even though we never go back to the same place twice! This year we fly out on 16th August - may see you there..

I hope you all enjoy it as much as we have.
