Thermal mud baths on Koygeyiz Lake have the highest mineral content in Turkey and are used by locals and visitors alike. A short but beautiful boat trip from Dalyan, you can be swimming and bathing in the lake and the thermal pools. Lake Koygeyiz is an inverted volcano lake with multitudes of bird life and unspoilt beauty.

We have just returned from a week in villa Ruby. It was perfect. The villa is tastefully decorated, spacious and has everything you could need for your stay. It was spotlessly clean. A lovely swimming pool just outside, perfect for my 7 year old as not too deep and he learnt to swim this week! The teenagers loved the pool too. There is so much to do in the area, a week was not long enough and we would think about returning, which is unusual for us as we normally like to go to a different place each year. Sue and Nev were on hand, very helpful with suggestions and with booking. One of our best ever holidays!!! Thank you so much. Family from Sidcup, United Kingdom August 2015
No disappointments here. The villa was perfect as was the location - peaceful with just a leisurely stroll into the town either along the road or beside the river. Sue and Nev were at hand if ever needed and a great help to us throughout our stay. We would recommend this villa and would definitely book again. Family from Blandford, United Kingdom October 2014
We have visited Dalyan many times over the last 20 years more recently staying at a friends villa. As this has now been sold Villa Ruby came into play. The best compliment I can pay is that it felt like home. Though we spent most of our time outdoors the villa is well proportioned and furnished with everything you need. Susan and Nev were deilghtful and helpful hosts. Not too far from the centre of town, just far enough to walk off some of the kokerec. Will choose Villa Ruby as our first choice in Dalyan next time.
