Location & area
Villa Orkide is in a select semi rural position to the south of the town centre and is within a 400 yards of the main street.
Within 50 metres there is a landscaped fitness park which is the pride of Dalyan, gifted by the city of Istanbul in 2008. Includes a running track, outside gym equiptment, a basket ball court, table tennis and childrens climbing frames. Well lit at night with a feature fountain.
The neighbouring Turkish houses, cotton fields, stunning view of mountains and ancient rock tombs of the historic ruined city of Caunos 'Kaunos', offer visitors to this villa a holiday of visual enchantment.
There are lots of things to do in Dalyan, including boat trips, sailing, mud baths, turtle spotting, Turkish baths, white water rafting, snorkelling, diving, a beautiful deserted beach and visiting the ancient ruins of Kaunos. Or you can of course just relax and enjoy the sun, sea and sand.
Since 1986, Dalyan and its delta has been a conservation area and wildlife sanctuary. Because of this, the small town on the South West coast of the Mediterranean has kept it's Turkish charm and appeal. Proudly guarded by the Dalyan authorities. Many people like us return year after year, a few never leave. Bird watchers come to Dalyan as there are over 200 different species to see.
Approximately 3 miles from the centre of Dalyan lays the 3 miles long sandbar Istuzu beach that juts out from the main land into the Mediterranean. This site was earmarked for development until it was brought to the authorities attention that it was one of the last nesting grounds for the endangered Loggerhead Turtle. A campaign with David Bellamy and a local woman Kaptan June (Haimhoff) was successful in stopping the development of Iztuzu Beach. Visiting times to the beach are restricted to daytimes only from May - September when the Turtles are nesting.
You can reach Iztuzu by Boat (approx. 40 mins) or Dolmus (approx. 20 mins). The boat winds its way down the channel through the rustling reeds, where the 'African Queen' was filmed, to the open tip of the beach, with an opportunity to spot the turtles, and many species of birds. The Dolmus (local bus) travels lakeside and over the mountains through beautiful winding roads lined with Oleander. Both ways offer spectacular scenery and are well worth doing.
For an historic cultural experience take the rowing boat ferry across the river (400 yards from the villa) and walk down the back lanes to the ancient ruined city of Kaunos.
This was a very significant city port, with ruined temples, an ampitheatre, castle and walls but unlike Greece or Rome you can take your viewing at leisure in the cooler parts of the day with few other tourists to compete with.

Important Notice : Avoiding Fraud
It's rare, but some helpful hints to watch out for with regards to fraud:
- It is important to NEVER wire funds or use/employ other fund transfer mechanisms such as western union: Always use a credit card to protect yourself against fraud. If owners pressure you into providing a deposit or refuse to accept credit cards, there is a high probability that this is a scam.
- If at all suspicious of fraud, ask to see their website, or any other literature they can provide or send to you. Ask them for contact details for guests who have previously stayed on their property insisting on telephone numbers. Be suspicious of emails that originate from free email services (yahoo, hotmail, gmail, etc)
- Research the property thoroughly on the internet to see if there is any history or mention of scams associated with the property.
