A wonderful stay in Dalyan

Amanda arranged transfers from the airport (and back again) so from the minute we arrived in Turkey everything was smooth and easy.
Villa Elmaha is exactly as described. A little smaller than I expected but perfectly suited to a small - medium sized family. The villa is located in a very peaceful area away from the town and is surrounded by beautiful mountain scenery, it was a joy to breakfast on the terrace or sit chatting late at night with just the sounds of the nightlife around. The gardens and pool are enclosed and beautifully kept. With only two other villas sharing the pool (with really lovely, helpful neighbours that both own their properties), it was peaceful and there is plenty of room for swimming and playing.
The villa has a notebook that visitors have written in with recommendations and the owner also provided suggestions for restaurants and places of interest, a great help until you've found your bearings. There was a huge selection of PS2 games, an Ipod dock and dvds suitable for all family members.We found far too much to do than to use the tv!
Dalyan is such a warm, friendly town with a wonderful ambience. We loved the river boat trip to the turtle beach, which is so beautiful and great for wave jumping. The 12 island boat trip was my favourite day out - a full day from 9am pick up at the villa to 7pm drop off, lunch included for £15 each!! (with Olzap tours, ask for Dale). We ate out almost every night as prices were extremely manageable, even on a budget. Our favourite was The Waterfront - great food, great waiters and brilliant Turkish night. We also enjoyed The Hidden Garden.
This was my first trip to Turkey, it was long-awaited so I researched carefully. I was tempted with Olu Deniz or Fethiye but chose Dalyan as it was described as being more Turkish and quieter. We visited both Fethiye and Olu Deniz on a day trip. Both were much bigger and far busier and commercialised, also very hilly. Olu Deniz beach is truly stunning but for us Dalyan wins hands down for it's overall easy, laid back warmth. The Turkish people are so welcoming and friendly and, for the first time, I have found a place that I know we will return to.
I can see why there's only one review on here - no-one wants to share it!! Thanks Amanda, we will be back to Villa Elmaha very soon. Tracy and girls x
