4Dalyanjewel luxury villa with landscaped garden in Dalyan

Dalyan: The tiny town of Dalyan in the province of Mugla on the South-Western Mediterranean is set in the center of a broad delta whose natural beauty is completely unspoilt. This is one of the surviving corners of paradise, an area of outstanding natural beauty and historic interest.

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 meter 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 5 km east from the mouth of the channel.

Other Activities: Jeep Safari, white water rafting, gulet cruise and boat trips

Golf: There is an 18 hole golf course 30 mins away In Sarigerme right on the coast and opening end of 2008

The skiing is available from Dec to April at Seki which is a one hour drive from Dalyan. Skis can be hired from the center but it is only suitable for beginners and early intermediates - however if you want to sunbath and ski on the same day as I did in Christmas it is possible.
