Luxury 4 bed/3 bath detached villa, arranged over 3 floors, with private pool and garden, close to beach, shops and restaurants.
Enjoy a wonderful relaxing holiday in Villa Diana, a luxury 4 bedroom detached triplex villa with private pool and garden. The villa is built in a Greco-Roman style with feature pillars, arches and decorations. Villa Diana is situated in a quiet residential part of Calis, but still close to local amenities, such as the beach, dolmus route, shops and restaurants. The immediate surrounding area is semi-rural and is a mixture of newer holiday homes and established Turkish houses. You will therefore experience the sights, sounds (and maybe occasional aromas) of Turkish life. There is a small shop 2 minutes walk from the villa, for all those essentials e.g. bread and milk etc, and there is a mini-market about 5 minutes walk, just across the main Calis road. Here you can buy pretty much everything you need. The beach (at the Seril1 end) is an easy 10 minute flat walk. Enjoy the mountain views from the rear of the villa and the beautiful sunsets from the front roof terrace. Laze around the 30 sq metre pool on the cushioned sun loungers and enjoy a BBQ meal on the terraces. The villa has a private gated driveway. The garden and pool are maintained daily (except Sundays). If booking for 2 weeks, there is a mid holiday linen change. A welcome pack is provided, and there an option (paid locally) of a shopping trip to the large Migros (or Tansas) supermarket (in Fethiye), the day after you arrive. The swimmimg pool is available throughout the May to October season.
NEW for 2008: A roof has been built over the front terrace providing welcome shade, and so that al-fresco meals can be better enjoyed.
There is now a pool-side shower for guest use.
A mobile phone is now provided for guest use, useful for contacting the local agent or for making reservations.
NEW for 2010: A pergola has been constructed at the end of the pool, with vines trained overhead, to provide a relaxing shady area for eating or lounging. 2x adult bikes provided for guest use.
NEW for 2011: Exterior security lighting installed.
NEW for 2012: Complete interior re-painting.
NEW for 2013: Complete exterior re-painting. Swimming pool completely re-tiled in blue mosaic, lighting upgraded to LED. Villa now connected to mains drainage.
The spacious accommodation is arranged as follows:-
The ground floor is open plan and air conditioned. The front door opens to a spacious entrance hallway, decorative archways separate the lounge, dining area and fully equipped kitchen. French doors provide access to the front and rear terraces, where you can enjoy relaxing meals al-fresco. There is ground floor toilet/shower room - handy when using the pool.
Take the curved marble staircase up to the first floor, where you will find a master bedroom (double bed) with en-suite shower room and french door to a balcony overlooking the pool.
Bedroom 2 also has a double bed and a french door to the rear balcony with mountain views.
Also on this floor there is a luxurious main bathroom, complete with Jacuzzi corner bath and shower.
Continue up the marble staircase to the top floor, here you will find bedroom 3 (standard double size sofa-bed), complete with kitchenette and patio doors leading onto a private roof terrace with panoramic views (ideal for that all-over tan). This room can be either used as a bedroom, or for the smaller parties as a wondeful chill-out room to watch the sunsets.
Also on this floor is bedroom 4 (twin-beds), please note that this room has a partially sloping ceiling and mountain views.
The four bedrooms all have individually controlled air conditioning units - great when its really hot. The air conditioning units also have reverse cycle heating facility, this is useful for the cooler evenings, early and late season.
If you need additional sleeping space, then the sofas in the lounge convert into either a kingsize double bed, or 2 single beds. Or alternatively, there are 2 fold-out beds available - these are great for kids.
A Cot and highchair are provided for infants (one). Although the villa can sleep a maximum of 10, a more comfortable maximum would be 8.
The villa has been newly and tastefully furnished and is now fully equipped and ready to use.
NB whilst the villa will sleep up to a maximum of 10, this ideally will include up to 8 adults with children making numbers up to 10. The villa is not really suitable for 10 adults.
The villa is an ideal base for exploring this beautiful area of Turkey. Fethiye is set in a pretty bay surrounded by pine-clad mountains and overlooking the 12 islands of the bay. It has a busy attractive harbour with excellent boat trips to be had day or night, plenty of good restaurants, and a weekly Tuesday market, to catch a bargain. Nearby is Olu Deniz, the famous nature reserve and beach. If youre looking for lively nightlife, Hisaronu is within easy reach of Fethiye.
Calis is a small, resort with a lovely promenade, complete with bars, restaurants and shops where you can spend many happy evenings watching the sun go down. There is a long, sand and shingle beach from where you can watch spectacular sunsets. A dolmus mini bus picks you up from the end of the road, near the villa, if you want to go into Fethiye, Hisaronu or Olu Deniz. From the beach area a regular Water Taxi service runs to Fethiye, where there are various boat trips on offer, including the wonderful 12 islands cruise.
NB The villa is situated is a mixed area of holiday and local houses, so you will/may hear noises from animals kept by locals, including cows, sheep, goats and chickens.
Had a wonderful holiday - accommodation excellent can't complain about anything definitely considering returning next year.

Great news that you had a wonderful holiday in Calis, staying at Villa Diana. Well I have more great news - I am happy to advise that as a returning guest you get a 10% discount off any future bookings. Hope to see you again one day in the future.
Lovely property in a quiet area. The pool was great as we had three generations on holiday. The villa is a good 5 minute walk to the nearest shop and dolmus stop. Any issues were dealt with promptly by Tracy and Desree, the transfer they arranged was probably the smoothest we have experienced in 20 years of holidays in Turkey. Would highly recommend for a family holiday.

Hi Mr & Mrs McTurk, I'm delighted that you had a great holiday in Calis staying at Villa Diana. Over the past few years we have made several improvements to the villa and its facilities and it's great to hear that these are appreciated. We offer a 10% returning guest discount, if you ever want to stay again. regards, Pete.
Fantastic villa we had a great time Loads of room for or family of 6 and easy to get to the beach and bars. The Villa was really clean and the air con was needed during the hotter times. We would recommend this villa to anyone wanting to go to Turkey. The farm next door were nice people even with such little English spoken yet the cockerels were some times annoying as they do tend to be quite loud but you do get used to them. The one and only down side especially when you have two young children was the lack of English TV. (Even though DVDs are provided) Personally I thought it was great to have 2 weeks without it. Communication with Peter was very good when we had questions during the booking process. We booked the transfer and this worked like a dream, thanks to Tracy and Desiree for sorting us with a really safe and professional car hire, they were great. Great time, Great Villa have no fear in booking this villa. thanks from us all the foster family five star all round .

Hi Lee, many thanks for the positive comments and good to hear that you had a great holiday at Villa Diana. As a past guest you are eligible for a 10% discount off any future bookings. Please ask me for a discount code if/when required. Thanks Pete
Had a wonderful week staying in Calis at Villa Diana. The villa itself was immaculately clean on our arrival and on a daily basis the pool was cleaned and garden areas attended to. All utilities and electric goods you will ever need including a hair dryer in each bedroom, iron and board and dishwasher.
Walking at a steady pace, it will take you 15 - 20 minutes to walk to the main bar area and water taxi; that would be the only negative but saying that, a less 5 minute walk will take you to the main road to jump on the bus!
We would most certainly look at booking the villa again for next year.
A lovely villa. Good communication and prompt reply from owner who went out off way to accommodate our needs. Lots of extras in property e.g. bikes, laundry detergents etc, milk and biscuits on arrival which were much appreciated as we arrived very late evening. Kitchen well equipped including utensils. The 2 agents Tracy and Desree, both lovely ladies, they explained everything we needed to know.
I would highly recommend and stay again at this villa.

Hello there Peter We had a lovely time in Chalis beach and in the villa. Thank you very much for giving us the money to re-stock the fridge, this was very much appreciated and we were glad that we were not without it for too long. we thought the villa was very nice and comfortable, I believe my daughter and her friend watched almost all the DVDs so having a DVD player was great for the teenagers! The air conditioning units were fantastic and the best we have had in the villas we have stayed in. The beds were also very comfortable, we slept really well! Chalis beach was actually better than we had anticipated, and the front of shops and restaurants was great, we really enjoyed our evenings and met some very welcoming warm people in the bars and reastaurants. It was my daughters 16th birthday whilst we were away and the U2 bar made such an effort we were really touched as it was unexpected, we hadn't actually gone there to eat, we just went for drinks but they brought out a cake and let some fireworks off and put on a little show! We prefered Olu deniz in the day because of the beach but we felt that Chalis beach was very friendly in the evenings and we never went anywhere else in the evenings apart from Fethiye and Hisaranou a couple of times. the whole area is great and the dolmus service is so good! Our favourite small supermarket to purchase drinks and biscuits etc was the one on the front, with steps leading down to it (I can't remember what it was called) but the owner was lovely, very friendly and helpful. Val and Howard's service was excellent. I thought that her taking you to the supermarket and showing us around the resort on the first day was a brilliant idea as she was able to point out some places, they were both very friendly and helpful and we felt that we could have contacted them about anything, which is very reassuring when you are abroad. We actually have never stopped in a villa that has a management team and I have to say that I would definately want there wherever we go in the future. we came back and felt very depressed because we had had such a good time - we even said that we would go back in September for a week!! Thank you once again for allowing us to stay in your villa and we wish you all the best and every success in your future lettings. Kind regardsLynne (from Banbury)
