Dalaman – more than just an airport
Dalaman is a district, with a town of the same name, located within the province of Muğla on the beautiful south western coast of Turkey. The population of Dalaman has been growing steadily over the last 10 years as the area has developed and the population now stands in excess of 37,000 inhabitants.
Much of the Dalaman district lies on a fertile plain and farming plays an important part in the life of the area. The soil is rich in nutrients and fruits, such as lemons, oranges, mandarins, pomegranates, melons, watermelons, sweet corn and cotton are grown here.
A large area of the plain is farmed by the state department – TIGEM*, the entrance to which is located on the main roundabout by the town centre.
Dalaman appeals to those people who want to experience a little more than the seasonal delights of the tourist towns. Unlike the tourist resorts, which virtually close down in the winter period, Dalaman remains a bustling town all year and this is one of the major attractions of living, or owning a holiday home, here.
The one in Dalaman is just off the D555 airport road. You will see the sign near by the traffic lights, a couple of kms before Dalaman town centre. Here is their website:

He had ordered the plans and the material for his projected residence here to his architects in France, at the same as the plans and the material for a train station for Alexandria in Egypt. Unfortunately, the two simultaneous shipments were misdirected, the materials for his residence heading towards Egypt, and the Alexandria train station ending up in Dalaman. Since it was going to be too costly to re-ship everything to the right destination, the station was built in Dalaman anyway, with even a few miles of purposeless railway track.
