Full property description

Villa Meliha has an open-plan living area and kitchen upstairs with magnificent views across to the lycian rock tombs. The villa is situated in a rural location near the foot of a mountain range. Villa Meliha is surrounded by cotton fields and lemon and orange and pomegranate groves. Our nearest neighbours are a farm, and 2 other Oruc villas which are both a whole field away from us. We are short distance from the Itzuzu beach road. It is a 20 minute walk into the village or a 5 minute cycle. For 2013 we are offering B&B during the spring and autumn. Long term winters lets also available and reductions for small groups.

Area description

Iztuzu is world famous for its natural beauty and turtle nesting. Being a preservation and protected area it is totally unspoilt and non-commercialised. By car it is a 10 minute drive. There is also a mini bus service from the village but the best way to the beach is by river boat taxi which takes 30 minutes but it is well worth it as you travel along the meandering river delta through the reed beds and you can spot a host of wildlife.

The Sarigerme Hilton Golf Complex opens in October 2012. This is a short commute by car from Dalyan and Orteca.

There is winter ski-ing available in the surrounding mountain area. Details upon request

Special Interest Holidays
Belly dancing holidays, meditation, creative writing/song-writing, Turkish cookery. A full range of activities and interests can be provided by Oruc travel who manage the villa for us. We have extensive details about special interests on our website.
In addition, the villa is available as a winter let if you feel that one or two weeks are not enough to sample all that the region has to offer. In the winter season montly rates are similar to weekly rates in the high season. If our villa is already booked we are able to offer you a range of other villas of different sizes and locations. Please contact us for more information.

How to get there
Dalaman is 30 minutes away and we can organise transfers for you with Oruc travel. Local taxis are very good too for getting around in Dalyan and some of the restaurants will even collect you.

Dalyan is a 5 minute journey by car. Orteca the nearest town is 20 minutes away, Fethiye and Oludeniz and Gocek marina are 45-50 minutes away. In the opposite direction Marmaris is about the same distance and Rhodes can be accessed from here by ferry.

Further Details
Dalyan lies on the edge of the Dalyan Canal which joins the large inland Koycegiz lake with the Aegean/Mediterranean Sea at the point of the famous Iztuzu (Turtle) Beach where the Loggerhead Turtles lay their eggs each summer. Across from the river from the town are the Lycian Rock Tombs carved into the cliff face, slightly further downstream is the ancient city of Kaunos, just a few of the local historic attractions. Dalyan is also an ideal location for exploring the local coast line, with its own shallow child friendly beach and with many secluded bays nearby such as the snorkeling havens of Ekincik and Asi Bays. Nearby is also the sailing town of Gocek from where you can enjoy a day spent exploring the 12-Islands of Fethiye Bay.
