“Best holiday ever”
Reviewed October 15, 2012 for a stay in September 2012

What a fantastic holiday my very good friends my brother my husband and myself have just spent the most amazing two weeks in dalyan in the villa Arici.The villa is exactly as discribed in the advertisement with added bonus the owners are great people who are extremely helpful and friendly.The villa is very clean very spacious and has absolutely everything you need for the most relaxing holiday ever.
diana and marco offer a shopping service so when we arrived we had a fridge full of food and water and the cost was exceptionally good value for money.Also you could if you wish book Diana and Marco to come to the villa and cook for the family we did this twice and i must say the food was fantastic as was the companie.
As for dalyan i have never been to such a relaxing friendly place the people are great the resturants are clean tidy and offer great food at fantastic prices and the day trips were great value for money.I would recommend the twelve island boat trip as this was a great experiance two tips i would give however is 1 to book through kaunos as the boat is limited to twelve people so it is more private and relaxing and 2 to take a book along.
We loved our holiday so much that as soon as i returned to the uk i booked the villa again for next year.
I have never returned from a holiday so relaxed i have fallen in love with Daylan and can not wait to return next year.
I feel that apart from having such a fantastic holiday because the villa and location was so lovely Diana and Marco made us feel like we were so welcome we actually did not want to return home.

Reviewed September 18, 2012 for a stay in September 2012

Four adults and myself have just spent the most fantastic two weeks in villa arici in turkey.
The villa was clean tidy and there was plenty of room for all the owners Diana and Marco were great hosts and offered plenty of advice on were to eat and day trips.
We booked Diana and Marco to cook for us on the first week the food and company were five star so much so that we booked them again on the second week.
The villa itself was great it is surrounded by mountains on which the local goats graze which is fantastic to watch and the privacy we had was great it is a true paradise.
This without a doubt is the most relaxing holiday we have ever had.
Diana and Marco came on a daily basis to feed the chickens and clean the pool so were always at hand to offer assistance if needed.
What I found to be most helpful was the shopping service offered for the day off arrival and the help with the transfers from the airport as well as the contact recieved from diana before the holiday to answer any questions I had nothing was to much bother.
As for Dalyan itself it is a fantastic place to visit the local peope were very friendly the food was great and there was plenty to see and do.
In particular I would recommend the patio and the steak house for places to eat and the twelve island boat trip not forgeting turkish bath at the local spa it is a great experience.
I will be rebooking again very soon for next year it truely is a great place to stay.

“Outstanding villa in Dalyan”
Reviewed November 17, 2011 for a stay in September 2011

Villa Arici

7 members of my family stayed at Villa Arici for 2 weeks from the last week of September this year. The villa is set in the Dalyan valley, just 30 minutes from the airport, nestling at the base of a cliff, surrounded by Pomegranate groves. It is a truly idyllic setting for this beautiful four bedroom Villa. The Villa is ideally positioned with a comfortable 10 minute walk to get to the mini market and the first restaurant and a further 5 minutes to arrive at the town centre with all of the bars, restaurants and shops. There were even 3 bikes provided for a quick nip into town.

The villa is maintained to a very high standard with TV, satellite, DVD player (with a large selection of DVD’s) and a pool table. The Villa is equipped with everything you could want and, if you can’t find something, just ask Diana who will be available daily along with her little shadow, Chocolate, (her gorgeous little dog.) The views from the balcony and across the swimming pool are stunning and completely unobstructed. Even in late September the pool area was basked in sunlight from 0900 to 1800 in the evening, with more than enough lounge chairs and towels supplied.

We ate out 10 of the 14 nights and the choice is extensive and I can truthfully say we didn’t have a bad meal. Prices are good but can become expensive if you like a drop of wine. A bottle of house wine can cost more at some establishments than at home. Then again, you can’t get a T-bone steak at home for £10! If you fancy a night in you can get a take away delivered to the door. The best night was when Marco (who is a fully trained Meze chef) cooked and served a traditional Turkish meze of about 15 or 16 hot and cold courses on the villa’s patio by the pool. If you stay at Villa Arici, you must do this as it worked out as one of the cheapest meals we had in the fortnight! We hired a private boat one day for just a few pounds more than the public trips. Well worth it to be able to visit the mud baths, the Lycian tombs and the turtles at your leisure and to your timetable.

I have used trip advisor as a source of information to plan 6 holidays in the last 3 years but this is the first destination that has driven me to write my first review due to the quality of the property, location and kindness of the hosts. If you book villa Arici then any questions you may have before arrival, as I did, then Diana would normally have comprehensively answered them by e-mail in less than 48 hours.

Definitely a place to go back to.
