Cennet Villa is a luxurious and spacious, beautifully appointed villa set in landscaped gardens with 2 swimming pools.
Cennet (or paradise in English) Villa is a brand-new, spacious, beautifully equipped, elegantly furnished, fully air-conditioned villa set in landscaped gardens, with 2 swimming pools for the whole family to enjoy. It comfortably accommodates 6 people in 3 double-sized bedrooms; one has a private balcony overlooking the pool area and one has two adjoining roof terraces. Each bedroom has its own private bathroom and WC.
There is a private patio area, with a built-in BBQ, which receives the warming morning sun, and the comfort of shade in the hot afternoon.
There are two roof terraces; where you can soak up the sun in peace the whole day long, enjoying a gin and tonic or two with ice and a slice from the lemon tree in the front garden.
The villa has been beautifully furnished to the owners’ own high specification. There is a dishwasher, microwave and gas/electric cooker for those rare nights you will want to stay in and eat. There is also a DVD player (which also plays CDs) and a small library of DVDs for your enjoyment. You may also take your own DVDs to enjoy.
Much attention has been paid to storage and you will find large fitted wardrobes in each of the three double-sized bedrooms (a feature sadly lacking in many private villas).
If you require any advice or assistance during your stay, we also provide you with a 24x7 contact number for no additional charge.
If there are any additional services you require, please let us know and we will do our utmost to accommodate you.
Calis and Fethiye
Calis is a wonderful, small, friendly, seaside town with all the amenities you would expect. The town centre, with its many bars and restaurants is a mere 10-minute walk from the villa - close enough to enjoy but far enough not to be heard!
Many marvellous bars and restaurants line the charming promenade, where you can sample local delicacies whilst enjoying the fabulous sunsets. The seemingly endless beach is a 10-minute walk from the villa and is also home to the local turtle population. For the more energetic, there is a surfing (and kite surfing) school at one end of the promenade.
Fethiye, a 10-minute drive from Calis, is one of the most romantic towns in Turkey and has something to satisfy all tastes. The bustling old town is awash with bars, market stalls, wonderful restaurants and is set along the stunning Fethiye harbour. Fethiye offers dazzling mountain scenery and there are plenty of archaeological sites to take-in. The breath-taking sunsets, the warm hospitable locals and the hidden beauty spots around Fethiye ensure visitors return over and over again.
We are positive that you and your family will fall in love with Cennet, Calis and Fethiye.
Things to Do
The “ghost town” of Kayakoy dates back to the 13th century and up until 1922 had a population of 25,000. After the war of independence, the Greek population were repatriated and their old houses left to the elements. Kayakoy is now an open-air museum and there is a civil project underway to turn it into a village of “peace and friendship”.
Kayakoy is a wonderful place to visit; the mountain road to Kayakoy winds through fragrant pine forests and past countless beehives. Once at Kayakoy, climbing the stone-paved road to the chapel on the hill you can enjoy a panoramic view overlooking Soguksu Cove. Even if the weather is very hot elsewhere, on the top of this hill there is a constant cooling breeze.
Around 45 minutes from Fethiye, Olu Deniz is a resort area in the hillside town of Belcekiz which has crystal clear water and a long beach curving away from the main promenade. Here you can enjoy many water sports and activities, including paragliding, hang gliding and sailing.
Within a 5-minute walk of the villa is the Sultans’ Aqua City water park. Here, during the summer months, you can enjoy the use of the slides, pools, animations and many other activities from 9am to midnight.
Saklikent Gorge is the largest gorge in Turkey, over 18km long and hundreds of feet deep. It carries vast quantities of melt-water each year and yet it is barely visible until you are inside it.
Once the Lycian settlement of Telmessos, Fethiye is a lively port and market town where Turkish life and tourism exist side by side. Along the pretty waterfront you can watch the traditional wooden gullets, motor launches and fishing boats.
The old port area 'paspatur' is named after the cold-water spring called Paspatur, which flows, into the pool here. Its history dates back to many years. During the period when refrigerators were non-existent, water jugs and melons were submerged into the pool for cooling, while animated, friendly chats were carried out at the coffee-houses and pubs located around it.
At present the Paspatur square has grown and expanded, with restaurants overshadowed by vine and ivy, bars and discotheques; as well as shops selling anything from aromatic herbs to 'designer' clothes.
Looming above the town, the famous rock tomb of King Amyntas is visited by many every year. Taxi drivers will be happy to take you and wait while you take photos and enter the tomb.
The owners are keen divers and use the European Diving Centre in Fethiye. The EDC is the only dive centre in Turkey to hold the prestigious rating of PADI 5 star Career Development Centre - highest recognition given by PADI (Professional Association of Diving Instructors) to any diving centre in the world.
The EDC is situated on the edge of Fethiye away from the crowds with their own boat dock directly opposite the centre. Onsite at the diving centre is the well-stocked retail shop, bar, snack bar, equipment store and offices.
We couldnt ask for anything more. Beautifull apartment and excellent value for money . The owner Nick was always helpull when we contacted him. I would highly recommend this property. We will be renting this apartment from Nick again most definetely. Thank you to Nick the owner for all his help.

We had a great family holiday, the villa confortably accommodated 6 people. The air conditioning was invaluable and the swimming pool excellent. Never been to Turkey before and it exceeeded our expectations. Eating out was around 40% less than you would pay in the UK and customer service was very friendly. Would recommend villa and location to anyone particularly families. You must try the Jeep Safari excusion great value at just over a tenner for the whole day including lunch. Happy holidays!

We found the villa clean, comfortable had everything we needed and excellent facilities. Located in a very nice quiet area, close to local amenities. It made our holiday in Turkey very enjoyable. Nick had been very helpful before when we booked, after we booked and during the holiday. Definitely recommend to friends and family. Excellent value for money!

We have stayed in this property before so knew what we were getting. 3 good bedrooms complimented by 3 bathrooms/showers and a 4th loo (downstairs) in well kept grounds. The house is very good and not just the bare minimum holiday home that we have encountered before. It is possible to sunbathe all day on the terraces and to enjoy meals, or just drinks, with the wooden (not plastic) patio furniture. Being located a short walk from the centre of Calis Beach and very close to the Sunday market could hardly be better. I recommend anybody renting here, or anywhere in Turkey, do their homework on milk and butter if these are at all important to you. These and most other supplies are readily available from the Gempa supermarket nearby (3 minutes walk).
THE LARGE SWIMMING POOL IS SUPERB!
We will, hopefully, go again.
Glad you enjoyed your holiday Steve. You are welcome back any time. I know what you mean about milk; it's very easy to buy yoghurt by mistake. Look for the word "süt" on the carton to make sure you're getting milk.

We highly recommend this villa it far exceeded our expectations, it was clean, spacious and had plenty of room for a family of five. It had everything you may need. Nick, the owner was very helpful and kept in touch reguarly throughout the booking process, he also offered lots of recommendations regarding places to visit, eat, shop etc We felt very reasurred before going. We were pleased that beach towels were provided as they can be such a pain to house for five in limited luggage space. The air con was a godsend to say the least with the temperatures well into the 100's! My favourite part of the villa I have to say were the roof terraces, being an early riser and an avid reader I spent many a happy hour sat in tranquil bliss.
The location was excellent, just a short walk to the beach, shops, market, waterpark and a varied choice of restaurants. We went on a few trips and were delighted to be picked up and dropped off at the door. We strongly recommend the jeep safari, we had a wonderful day, the children particularly enjoyed this trip, the organisers made it fun and were very accomodating to their needs.
Thanks to Nick for organising the transfers, they were very reliable and most efficient. If your're considering holidaying in the calis area Villa Cennet is a perfect choice of accomodation. We are certainly hoping to return sometime soon!
Thank you Nick for letting us have a wonderful stay in your lovely holiday home!

Hi Nick, just got back home last night, we would just like to say how impressed we were with your villa, the pool and the location we will highly recommend it to our friends and family.We have had a great holiday and very good meals, thank you once again, all the best Sarah,Mark and children.
Wonderful stay at this stylish and spacious apartment. We visited Oct 06 which is perfect to escape the UK Autumn. Weather was still hot but not too hot to enjoy. Lovely swimming pool a meter from the patio with a fab kiddies pool. My 18 month year old was very happy and kept the other guests entertained. Location is great for beach, shops, and restaurants. We regularly took a Dolmus into Fethiye for a change of scene and one night for an amazing turkish bath. Very safe, and friendly location without the usual tourist saturation! Many thanks Nick for a great week.
Thank you so very much for allowing us to stay in your beautiful villa. We all had a fantastic time! Wow, what a place you have! It's just gorgeous.Ali - London
