About the Owner

We are a European family currently living in Dubai and have owned Villa Bellapais for the last 9 years. My husband lived in Turkey as a child and fell in love with the country and people. Our search for the best place in Turkey took a number of years but when we found Kalkan and Villa Bellapais, it was worth the wait. Our family have grown up here and for the first few years we kept Villa Bellapais to ourselves. However after renting it for the first time a few years ago we realised that there are families similar to ourselves who visited and fell in love with Kalkan. We have a number of families coming back year after year and have looked after Villa Bellapais as if it was there own. We would love you to come and stay with your family and fall in love with Kalkan as we have.

Wonderful Views

  • 5 of 5

Positioned high on the hill above Kalkan, Villa Bellapais offers fabulous views across the bay. The villa is furnished as a family holiday home rather than a rental property so you quickly feel at home. The large, though rather deep, pool was our focus during the hot days with plenty of seating and shade when the sun was too hot.

Lycean Homes do a good job servicing the villa with Omar, who called twice a day to check the pool, answering our questions and generally making sure we were OK.

The town was as we expected from reading reviews, enough bustle without being rowdy with locals and visitors all extremely friendly.

The only downside was the steep hill and unmade roads around the villa, though of course without the hill we wouldn't have had the views. The journey down was fine for the sure footed but we usually resorted to a taxi back, which was essential when carrying shopping or in the heat of the day.

We had a great holiday, exactly as we hoped for and visited a new place.

Fabulous villa with amazing pool & views

  • 5 of 5

This really was one of the best holidays we have had. The Villa was perfect. There was even a small provisions pack on our arrival and the biscuits were devoured within minutes. The quality and cleanliness of the villa is amazing. It just has everything you could need in it. The owners have put together a great information book and we referred to it a lot. My husband fell in love with the pool and amazing views. We were home by 5pm each day for him to have his afternoon beverage/s in the pool watching the sun go down.

Saklikent Gorge is a great outing and not too far away, and our other favourite was Kaputas Beach. We did squeeze in Patara Beach and Kas too. There is just so much to do in the area. Didn't make it to a beach club this year.

We walked into town for cocktails and dinner most nights. DIVINE, and thank you to the owners for recommendations. We also dined at the Mediterranean restaurant which is only a 5 min walk from the villa and they get our tick for best hummus in Kalkan.

Yes it is a bit of a climb up the hill to the villa, but by day 2 we were used to it. We didn't try driving the hire car up the hill as the pool man recommended we park at the top which was fine. How fabulous is he - carried out cases in for us, and was there each day watering and setting up the pool umbrellas!

Can't wait to return next year for sun, pool and lots more adventures. Thank you Villa Bellapais.

Villa Bellapais

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our holiday in Villa Bellapais this summer - You never know what the accommodation is really like til you arrive - The villa exceeded our expectations- it was modern, spacious and well kept - Good quality towels and bedding and everything in working order. It was exceptionally clean, well maintained and had superb views. In comparison to similar villas nearby, the owners have keep the villa up to date and invested in lovely cream cushioned outdoor furniture and umbrellas and have a very good service company looking after it. It was a luxury to have the patio cleaned, plants watered and sun umbrellas put up each morning and evening. There were a great selection of books and DVD's for use, and the kitchen equipment and crockery was good quality

The maid service worked really well for us and Kalkan has so many good restaurants and trips for us to go on. We hired a car which allowed us to do a few day trips. We spent a couple of days at Kalamar Beach club which entertained our teenagers. I have to say that we had difficulty driving it up the hill next to the villa and parking in the villas garage as it is exceptionally steep. After one attempt we decided to park at the top of the hill and walk down. We will definitely return to stay at Villa Bellapais at some point in the future.

From the Owner

We bought Villa Bellapais from a local builder who had a real passion for getting the best materials and also the best plots. Hence Villa Bellapais is beautifully built with one of the best locations in Kalkan. The interior is cool in the Summer and still bright and fresh as the day it was built. The area is beautiful and Kalkan is one of the few place in Turkey to avoid the large hotels and nightclubs.

Activity and Interests


Kalkan has its own lovely pebble beach which is about 20 minutes walking distance and there is also a fantastic, long, sandy beach at Patara, about 20 minutes away which can be reached by bus. The beach is in a conservation area so there is a minimal fee charged to use it.


The nearest airports are Dalaman which is about an hour and a half away, and Antalya which is about 2 and a half hours drive. Car hire is available from the airport and in Kalkan but is not essential as airport transfers can be arranged and the bus and taxi services are generally reliable and cheap. The cost of transfers to Dalaman Airport are currently about £60 each way for a standard car for 1-3 people, payable locally.


There are many places of interest nearby with a bus or tour guide ready to take you there most days. Kas is about 25 minutes away by bus and is a small harbour town with pretty old cobbled streets. Fetiye is 45 minutes away and has a great market on Tuesdays. Saklikent Gorge is well worth a trip and is 25 minutes away. Patara, with its white sandy beach is 20 minutes away.

Further Details:

There are numerous supermarkets in Kalkan, most of which will deliver direct to the villa. There are also quite a few banks and ATM's in the town which are all open most days. There are activities to suit everyone, from paragliding and scuba diving to relaxing boat trips, mud baths and shopping opportunities. All tours are bookable locally in Kalkan. The restaurants in Kalkan are amazing with most having roof terraces with wonderful views overlooking the harbour. The quality of food is excellent with small local tavernas to modern 5 star restaurants. I can honestly say that in 3 years we have not had a bad meal in Kalkan!

From the Owner

The view from Villa Bellapais is amazing with uninterrupted views looking right out past the harbour and out to sea. The infinity pool gives you a clear view out to the horizon and is a cool relaxing place to watch the world go by down below you. The position of the villa also means that even on the hottest days there is a pleasant breeze washing over you. It really is a pretty special place.
