Pretty gardens full of colour and greenery and an impressive lawn make a wonderful backdrop to the swimming pool and patio at the heart of this country hideaway. Conveniently close to shops, restaurants and coffee bars and yet still surrounded by rolling hills and fields, Yildiz is in a perfect spot for rest and relaxation. The owner has renovated the kitchen and it now boasts an oven, breakfast bar and full hob, and a great selection of English speaking channels can now be obtained for general entertainment and will keep little ones engrossed when needed, that is if they can be persuaded indoors when the pool and gardens have such an allure. Equally tempting is the all important barbecue with the promise of freshly grilled meals eaten out in the open, especially enjoyed with a glass of something cold! Exploring this wonderful valley is a delight; the Dalyan Delta is a natural conservation area with the long spit of ituzu's sandy beach, also known as Turtle beach, is inhabited by giant Caretta Caretta turtles. A magical place it forms a a huge triangle in which to sunbathe, swim, paddle and generally enjoy; the shallow waters great for smaller children. Back from the coast the Dalyan waterway takes you past the formidable Lycian Rock tombs built into the cliffs above the canal for Kings, a well preserved historical site full of wonder. Dalyan is a paradise for nature lovers and Yildiz offers a comfortable and informal setting for families and friends alike.
