Welcome to Beyaz Galeri Ev. We do hope that you find the following information useful. Should you have any questions please do not hesitate to contact me or Terry. We are keen to help in any way for you to have a relaxed and enjoyable holiday.
We are mindful of your privacy and therefore someone will only visit the villa during the week upon request. In the meantime, if you should need to contact anybody from the Tamarisk team for any reason, please use the telephone numbers provided in the villa book.
This striking house is a creation of the award-winning architect, Omer Irmak and is designed to take full advantage of the glorious surrounding nature of the Dalyan Delta whilst blending subtly into its environment.
Cliffs tower over the villa forming a dramatic ever-changing backdrop with the house ringed on all other sides by rural fields leading through the delta to the beach at Iztuzu.
Beyaz Galeri Ev takes full advantage of this natural theatre with walls of floor-to-ceiling glass covering the entire frontage providing magnificent views across the grounds, the enormous swimming pool and on over the fields in front to the reeds on the banks of the delta beyond.
Wonderful though this vista is, for us the highlight are the mesmerising views of the cliffs behind which are framed by the enormous picture windows that form another wall of glass at the rear of the double-height sitting room.
The light at differing times of day is absolutely glorious and simply reclining and watching the amazing variety of birdlife in the cliffs is an absolute joy in itself.
WELCOME TO BEYAZ GALERI EV
We trust the following information will prove helpful to you and hope you have a fabulous holiday…
About the villa
Beyaz Galeri Ev was completed in 2008. It took 5 years to build. It is set in 5300 sq metres of land which was originally used for growing cotton. It has 4 bedrooms, all with en-suite bathrooms. There is a separate downstairs toilet also. There is an open plan lounge and kitchen situated on the ground floor. Three of the bedrooms are situated on the ground floor. The mezzanine lounge has cable TV, DVD player and stereo sound system.
There are balconies off the mezzanine floor and the master bedroom. All the rooms have air conditioning but a feature of the the villa, it is designed to catch the natural breezes to cool the house naturally. If you open the windows at both ends of the villa, you will be amazed at how quickly it cools down.
Tugrul, the gardener is very proud of his lawn, which covers the upper section of the garden. The terrace which serves the pool, has an outside seating area, outside kitchen, outside shower room and separate toilet. The kitchen area has a gas hob, fridge and dishwasher. The lower section of the garden is mostly given up to growing pomegranates,so it blends in very well with the surrounding landscape.
About the area
Dalyan is a small town on the south-west coast of Turkey on the Mediterranean side. The town is the epicentre of the Dalyan delta. It is set on the banks of the Dalyan River, a peaceful holiday place unspoilt by mass tourism. Take a river bus from
The harbour to the beach, and it will be the most relaxing 45 minutes journey you will ever take. Drink in the beautiful scenery, the nature and the birdlife. Dalyan is a protected National Conservation area. It is home to over 200 species of birds along with three types of turtle including the loggerhead turtle Caretta Caretta. It is a flat area, so good for walking and cycling.
There is also plenty of sightseeing to be done, either by river or by local transport.
The standard of dining in Dalyan is a wonderful surprise with a wide range of traditional Turkish and seafood restaurants.
