All about Dalyan Mugla Turkey
The Dalyan Channel, through which water circulates between the Mediterranean and Köycegiz Lake slowly meanders, forming a network of small lakes and waterways through reed beds rising to between 3 and 5 metres in height. (The journey through this natural labyrinth is romantic and mysterious) With its mixture of fresh and salt water, these wetlands have become home to vast numbers of fish and other water life, as well as the birds of many species which feed on them. Dividing the sea from the delta is the Iztuzu sandbar stretching for 5km east from the mouth of the channel.
With its fine crystal sand, shallow turquoise sea and abundant sunshine, Iztuzu beach is the ideal seaside spot, perfect for swimming for 7 months of the year. It is this beach to which the endangered Mediterranean turtle Caretta Caretta has returned year after year to lay its eggs since time immemorial.
The Sultanye Thermal Baths: The Sultaniye Thermal Baths are to the Southwest of Köycegiz lake. The water here at 40 Celsius is second to none. The water at these baths was first used in Caunon times, then by the Byzantines, who rebuilt the accommodations. The ruins of the buildings from the period are submerged beneath the waters of the lake. It is not unusual to see the Turkish elderly make pilgrimages to the baths due to the water’s curative properties in case of neuralgia, rheumatism and skin disorders of the liver, spleen and bowels.
The Mud Baths: “Beauty Mud” which not only cleanses and tones the skin but is said to remedy rheumatism and has anti-ageing properties. After allowing the mud to dry, it can be removed in a natural clear water sulphur pool, at temperatures of around 40 Celsius. This leaves you refreshed and relaxed.
Caunos: The ancient city of Caunos stands midway along the channel facing Dalyan. Settlement here is believed to date from 3000 BC by Caunos, the son of Miletos and it later grew into a major port on the border between Lycia and Caria. Sprawling over a broad sloping site overlooking the sea and the delta, the principal monuments to be seen in Caunos are the Acropolis surrounded by city walls, a theatre, four temples, an agora, stoa, nymphain, baths, palestra, churches and a cistern.

Perfect stay – thank you
Absolutely lovely house with everything we needed during our 10 day stay. Great communication from the owner; very comfortable rooms and a perfect, large pool set in a beautiful garden. Very private and quiet location. We had no need of a car as the house is a quick trip by very reasonable and incredibly prompt taxis, or bike (provided) ride into Dalyan town. Walking distance to town, although best avoided in the high heat of summer! Teenagers very happy with the WIFI (and Playstation) but nothing could beat the appeal for all of us of watching the swallows and bats swooping around the palms at sunset from beside the pool. We’d love to return as there is so much to do in the area, and we would most definitely book here again.

Villa D’Louca – Splendid
Lovely villa supplying everything you could possibly need. The 4 bicycles were an added extra that the younger members took advantage of to go into town. If you want to leave your car behind, a taxi into Dalyan costs about £2.50 each way. I found I spent most of the daytime at the villa enjoying the pool and nature. Loads of fresh oranges on the trees so plenty of vitamin C every day. Every evening a little family of frogs joined us in the pool they didn’t seem to mind sharing. Would hope to return here one day.

Scenic and beautiful
We stayed at Villa D’Louca for two weeks and were joined in the second week by our daughters (20 and 23) The villa is set in beautiful well tended gardens, with a good sized pool and is surrounded on all sides by farmland and trees. Internally the villa is spacious, especially the master bedroom with ensuite bathroom. There is plenty of storage. It is a 25 minute walk into town and we are walkers! However it is a pleasant walk and the taxi back is very cheap. (20 Turkish Lira) There are 4 bikes at the villa which were very handy! Dalyan is the perfect mix of restaurants, bars and shops. The river is amazing and we took several trips to Turtle beach on the river taxi. Very chilled indeed! The bars and restaurants which go right to the river bank are beautiful. Kaunos Tours provide a first class service and dealt with all our requests with speed and efficiency. They were excellent for all our transfers also. We did two of their trips (12 islands boat trip and night safari) which were also excellent and good value for money. Pre holiday communication with them and the owner was also very good. We would recommend Villa D’Louca.

‘Having just returned from Villa D’Louca, we can honestly say it was probably the most relaxing holiday we have had (being older we’ve had few !!). The garden and pool area are immaculate, and we spent most of the time admiring the view from the raised terrace every morning and evening.
The main bedroom is lovely and cool, and the bed is comfortable. Not the hard beds we have encountered before when abroad.
The area is set back from the road, and is lined with beautiful palm trees. Set in country/farm setting the area is very quiet and incredibly private. We hired a moped which takes a few mins to whizz into town. There are local shops before town which stock essentials, and the supermarkets and butchers are brilliant for fresh food and good quality meat.
The villa gives you the best of both worlds, total tranquillity with a well-stocked kitchen and bar area, but locally you can find lovely restaurants and shops if you fancy a change of scenery.
The company who looks after the villa are discreet and very professional, they cleaned the pool every day (but never heard anyone arriving). So that was real positive.
Thanks Nick for your help with our booking, transfers and hamper. We will be back in touch for 2020. Clare & Paul’
Exceptional Villa ★ ★ ★ ★ ★ Fantastic villa, clean and well equipped. Beautiful location, very quiet. Quite a distance to walk into Dalyan, with no pavements on the main road. Taxis were mainly used at a cost of 15 – 20 TRL per trip. It was our second trip to Dalyan and we enjoyed it just as much as our first visit. Excellent restaurants and once again we took some trips with Ali “Sultan of Dalyan” on his boat – well worth the money with an excellent lunch provided.Nick Hicklin, the owner, was very helpful in allowing us to arrive early at the villa as our airport arrival was at 3.05 am. Kaunos Tours were used for airport transfers which I can highly recommend.An excellent holiday all round!. Sonja Greaves Aug 2015
