The views from the swimming pool terrace out over the Dalyan River area and its coastline are up there with the best in south-west Turkey. This is a place for outdoor types: plenty of activities are on offer in the wooded hills of the local national park, which also features Ancient Lycean rock tombs. The villa has a large, friendly bar area with a pleasing wooden ceiling and a distinctive open fireplace where the owner, Arslan Turkogul, likes to hold forth about his world travels. Only 18 km/11 miles from Dalaman Airport.
