We were a party of 2 parents with 3 daughters and 2 boyfriends all over 20. For some of us it was the second visit to Dalyan and it didn't disappoint! From the moment we saw the fabulous villa to the moment we left, we experienced the most enjoyable and pampered week possible. It was just 2 minutes to the nearest supermarket to get fresh bread and most items we needed, but otherwise we would have been happy just to sit around the fab pool, with the occasional dip to keep cool. Fav bits: lying on the lilo in the pool, a candellit barbecue under the pergola watching the lizard, the sweet owl watching us from the chimneypot, delicious meals next to the river, the lovely people of Dalyan who so generously welcomed us to their town, the funny market stallholders on Saturday ("Buy one get me free" - "cheaper than shoplifting"), the moonlit barbecue and cruise ( if you have a large party like us it's a bit cheaper to hire your own boat), the beautiful beach and turtle sanctuary (put on plenty of sunscreen) and, of course, just admiring the amazing house and pretty gardens. Bad bits: yes, the upstairs kitchen and main access through bedrooms is not the best, but the view from upstairs (expecially from the lovely balcony) of the rock tombs and gardens more than made up for this inconvenience. I can see exactly why it was arranged like this... In answer to a previous criticism about supplies at the villa I have always brought small amounts of washing up liquid, dishwasher tablets, washing powder, bin bags, etc with me to last the week. There were supplies there already in our week which we didn't actually have to use and we left things like milk, water, beer, sauces in the fridge for the next person.
Shana was amazing at checking that we had done all the formalities before leaving England and Sharon in Dalyan looked after us really well. Transfer drivers were excellent and always on time. We all shed a tear on leaving and are already planning our next holiday to the villa. Perfect!!
