The nearest beach is Iztuzu, which was recently deemed to be one of the top ten beaches. It is both clean and safe and is in a beautiful location 30 mins drive from the villa or a relaxing 50 minute boat trip from Dalyan. Iztuzu is the breeding ground of the Giant Loggerhead Turtle so the beach is closed at dusk, but there are many interesting bars and places to eat along the road on the way back.
Dalaman airport is only 30 minutes drive away and we can give you information about reliable transfers between Dalyan and the airport and car hire. Once you have arrived at the villa a car is not essential unless you wish to explore the local countryside, however there are efficient and cheap Dolmus (minibus) services operating from Dalyan to the surrounding towns and Iztuzu beach.
Dalyan is a short distance from the villa. You can also drive to the larger town of Ortaca in about 20 minutes. Dalaman can be reached in 30 minutes and the pretty 'nautical' village of Gocek in about 45 minutes. Further afield Koycegiz will take about an hour and the municipal capital of Mugla about an hour and a half.
Please do contact us for any further details you may require. There is a book giving details of local bars and restaurants in the villa which also lists some other useful information about the local area. For those looking for adventurous activities the following can be arranged locally - jeep safari and white water rafting. Other activities available include: mud baths; massage; Turkish baths and numerous boat trips. For those interested in archaeology Caunos, Tlos and Ephesus (4 hrs drive) are a must.
About Christopher Welton
We are a busy professional couple who live in a small village near Cambridge. We have a grown up son and daughter and we all visit the villa as often as we can. We have enjoyed welcoming family,friends and visitors to our home over the past few years and are delighted that they find the villa as relaxing as we do.
Christopher Welton purchased this villa in 2005
Why Christopher Welton chose Ortaca
We love the Turkish style of the villa with its Mugla architecture on the verandah and above all its peaceful location in a large garden with magnificent views of the mountains. We particularly enjoy swimming in the large pool, relaxing with a book in the garden and watching the stars in the evenings on a clear night. It is lovely watching the swallows dip over the pool for a drink and storks can be seen overhead early in the season. The pool is in the sun all day and in the evenings there are beautiful sunsets.You can choose to sit in the sun or shade at the villa and the hammock is very popular!
What makes this villa unique
Villa Frank has the best of both worlds being in a rural spot within easy walking distance of Dalyan along a flat , paved road. The bus to the beach can be accessed at the bottom of the road or you can go by boat from the riverside in Dalyan. A car is not essential as the villa is only 1 km from Dalyan. Taxis are freely available and are not expensive.
