Any one of these stylish new build Caunos Villas, located in downtown laid back Dalyan, near to the Turkish Turquoise coast, and the Mediterranean Sea. These modern three storey villas have five double ensuite bedrooms, and can comfortably accommodate up to ten guests, ideal for a large family of friend’s get together. The villas are two sets of semi-detached homes, perfect if you are a large party looking for a holiday in the centre of where it’s all happening. Each villa is surrounded by its own well-maintained grounds and gardens, and each one has a private pool with waterfall shower and jacuzzi. There is on street parking immediately adjacent to the villas, and complimentary Wi-Fi and air-conditioning is included throughout. The villas have been tastefully decorated with natural wood, and palette of contemporary neutral whites, blacks, greys and beiges.

Enter your chosen villa at ground floor level, where you will find an open plan living area. The seating area has two large comfy sofas, a contrasting armchair, coffee and side tables, a bookcase, all arranged facing a flat screen smart television, and an enclosed wood burning stove for the cooler evenings. There is an adjacent formal dining table and chairs, great for some impressive indoor entertaining. A large beige and white kitchen is fully equipped with everything you will need to cater for your holidays, including a gas hob, oven and microwave, an American style family sized fridge freezer, and a dishwasher. Whilst a more informal dining table and chairs is ideal for breakfast and a chat over morning coffee. A convenient guest cloakroom completes the ground floor. Take the stairs to the first floor where you will find three simply furnished ensuite double bedrooms. The black and white master bedroom has a double bed, bedside tables, floor to ceiling windows that opens to a small balcony, and an ensuite marble bathroom with walk in shower. There is a second bedroom with a double bed and Juliet balcony, and a twin room with two single beds and a balcony, both with ensuite shower rooms. The third floor is home to two further double bedrooms with double beds, nestled in the eaves of the villa, with ensuite shower rooms.

The terrace can be accessed from the floor to ceiling doors of the living area, and are a tale of two parts. The stunning ladder entry pool is at the front of the villa, at the shallow end there is a jacuzzi bath for some fun in the sun bubbles, whilst the other end is a waterfall shower to cool you down. The pool is surrounded by sun loungers and parasols, and a hammock swing chair in which to while away the hours reading this year’s latest blockbuster. Dine alfresco under the stars in the shaded pergola, and sample the local delicacies cooked on the built-in barbeque. Follow the stone path laid amongst lush green lawns to the back of the villa where there is a secluded garden with a soft seating area in which to relax and enjoy a cocktail or two before supper.

Caunos Villas are situated in the heart of residential downtown Dalyan, in the province of Mugla, on the Southwest Turkish Turquoise Coast. The villas are a short thirty minute, twenty-five kilometre, drive through the lush Turkish countryside from Dalaman International Airport. The town of Dalyan, which means Fishing Weir, is located betwixt and between the holiday hot spot of Marmaris, and the international town of Fethiye. Villas Caunos are located in the centre of Dalyan, a lively local town all year round, and just five hundred metres from the banks of the reedy River Cayi. Walk to the river to watch the boats going about their business on a daily basis, sauntering past the fascinating Lycian rock tombs and the ancient town of Kaunos to the beautiful Iztuzu Beach, home to the protected loggerhead turtles. A leisurely stroll into town will take you to local shops, supermarkets, welcoming cafes, bars and family-friendly restaurants, many with stunning settings on the river. By night some of the cafes and bars transform into lively low key cool jazz and live music venues.

By day you will be spoilt for choice with things to do and places to see, there is something for everyone of all ages. Most popular and an absolute must-do, is to take a private boat or join a group trip on a leisurely day on the River Cayi. Marvel at the ancient rock tombs of the kings, explore the fourth century BC town of Kaunos, enjoy a traditional Turkish meze lunch aboard, before disembarking at Iztuzu beach. The eco-friendly Iztuzu beach is the home to Caretta Caretta, the protected loggerhead sea turtles, who make their nests here and have become synonymous with local conservation and Dalyan town. The beach is closed at certain times during the hatching season to allow the new born turtles to safely reach the water, it’s a fascinating trip and you’ll be certain of spotting a turtle or two. Nearby is the vast Lake Koycegiz, full of local river and sea fish, spread over five thousand two hundred hectares, it has a number safe sandy beaches and is suitable for swimming with a magnificent mountain view. If it’s lakes you love, take a walk around Sulungur, five kilometres north of Dalyan in the Gokbel Hills, an instagrammable destination for superb sunrise and sunset photos.

Further afield you can follow the Lycian Trail, discovering the flora and fauna of Turkey, with the Taurus mountains as a backdrop. Walk the dramatic coastal scenery footpaths, that will take you to ancient cities and sights. For holiday fun and frolics make your way to Marmaris, an hour and fifteen minute drive will take you to the original fishing village, bustling markets, souvenir shops, buzzing cafes, bars, and restaurants, and a very lively nightlife. In the other direction you will find the cosmopolitan town of Fethiye, with a panoramic harbour, luxury lifestyle shopping, a renowned fish market, where you can enjoy freshly caught local sea food, as well as some iconic ancient tombs and amphitheatres.

Turkey is an eclectic mix of dramatic scenery, amazing food and a deep history.  A visit to Turkey almost always inspires comment about the hospitality, maybe because the Turkish people believe a visitor is a gift from God. A trip to Turkey will almost definitely inspire you to return. You’ll be following in the footsteps of many a famous person from ancient history.

The South West coast of Turkey offers the perfect climate for your holiday, boasting over 280 dry days a year and an average June temperature of 28C in Dalyan, with sea temperatures of 23 degrees Celsius.

The Carian’s once ruled this coast and there are lots of signs of their existence, such as rock tombs and the ancient riverside city of Caunos that sits opposite Dalyan. An area surrounded by pine trees, which are believed by locals to clean the air and increase the oxygen levels. The area is favoured by beekeepers for honeymaking and you will see many of the traditional blue beehives, and a few bees, in the area.

Modern Dalyan is a small resort on the river’s edge. Tourists enjoy the small wooden boat trips chugging along to the Iztuzu beach, maybe stopping at one of the sulphur mud baths, for a somewhat rudimentary beauty treatment and some one-off photos for the holiday album. The river has a great view of the rock tombs and has much wildlife along the reedbeds. The Istuzu beach is where the endangered loggerhead turtles come to lay their eggs. The beach caught international interest in the 80’s when David Bellamy and fellow environmentalist stopped a hotel development. Today it’s a conservation area and at the far end of the beach, there is a turtle rescue centre you can visit.

Dalyan has lots of restaurants, bars and a selection of gift shops. Dalyan has a local market on a Saturday, which has an amazing selection of fruit and vegetables. You should take the opportunity to enjoy breakfast at the water’s edge in nearby Gokbel. Slightly further out is the village of Beyobasi, where you can enjoy a trout meal in a restaurant cooled by the fast running waters, just off of the main Dalaman-Akyaka road.

The Koycegiz lake is at the other end of the river. The small town of Koyceyiz is perched on the side of the lake. The small bazaar gives the idea Koycegiz was once more important than Dalyan, thus probably the best day to visit is Monday when the weekly market is in town. Try one of the restaurants on the edge of the lake for lunch. If you’ve driven, don’t forget to stop at one of the fruit stalls on the road side, plying a healthy mix of orange & pomegranate juice. The Sultaniye Hot Springs sit on the south-west shore the lake. The hot mud pools contain mineral waters that are rich in chloride, sodium, hydrogen sulphide and bromide. There are even rudimentary cabins that some braver souls come to stay & take the waters

Ideal for Kids Ideal for Teens

The four villas each have their own private swimming pool, and with no set hours your kids can splash and play all day. Locally there’s the if you only do one excursion, you should take a family boat trip down the River Cayi, past the ancient rock tombs and town of Kaunos, before disembarking at Iztuzu beach. Follow the eco trails and watch in wonder at the Caretta Caretta turtles, their mating and hatching habits, and see nature in action. Visit the Kaptan June Sea Turtle Conservation Trust, where your children can learn all about her work to save the turtles and preserve the area.

Everyone and we mean everyone, loves a day at Village Sultaniye, home to the Thermal Mud Baths, your kids can get as dirty as they like, as they wallow like bathing hippos before a cleansing shower. A more relaxing day can be had at one of the many beaches of the local Lake Koycegiz, with paved esplanades, surrounded by lush greenery, and welcoming family-friendly facilities. Wear them out with local bike riding tours, an opportunity for some exercise and seeing the local flora, fauna, and traditional villages.

For some fantastic family fun time, jump aboard an open top jeep and take a safari around the Turkish countryside and coastline, and some off-road adventures. Venture further afield to nearby Gocek, a short twenty minute drive away, where you will find a luxury superyacht marina, and can climb aboard a traditional gulet for a classic twelve island boat tour. Discover the ghost town of Kaya, which has been abandoned since 1922, originally a Greek town, now lying in ruins, with houses, schools, and orthodox churches. Follow the running waters of the magnificent Saklikent Gorge to a stunning waterfall, where you can cool off and marvel at mother nature.

If that isn’t adventurous enough, they can try their hand at kayaking or white water rafting down the river rapids. Make your way to the oh so fashionable Olu Deniz, where you can enjoy soft sandy spit beaches, with calm, easy entry, sea water swimming, and relaxing sun loungers at one of the many beach clubs. Your children will love the facilities, with some fun in the sun on the sea water sports, not to mention the delicious homemade ice cream they serve all over Olu Deniz. If they are feeling brave, take the cable car up the almost two thousand metre Baba Dag Mountain, where at the top you can either simply enjoy the view, or if they are feeling adventurous, jump off and tandem parasail down back to Olu Deniz beach.

After all this activity have some good clean fun with a traditional Turkish Bath, when the whole family can enjoy a classic hammam with a relaxing hot room and a soapy bubbles massage.
