We highly appreciate direct communication with potential guests. You can use 0031649664937 to phone, SMS or WhatsApp Frenk.

The villa has the most fantastic sea views across the bay and offers many vantage points from where to enjoy them, including the pool terrace and balconies. The identical neighbouring villa was featured in 'The Times 20 Best Seaside Villas in Europe'.

Villa Bella sleeps 4 in one double and one twin bedroom both with an en-suite bathroom. The Villa is extremely well equipped with the best quality fixtures, fittings and furniture. It offers a fully equipped kitchen, a comfortable lounge complete with 40" LCD Smart TV with some international news and sports channels and many Turkish channels. A DVD player and a Radio/CD player are also available. There is a good selection of books and DVDs, but you can bring your own tablet/I-pad and HDMI cable for unlimited possibilities. Other amenities include air-con throughout, free unlimited wireless internet access, washing machine, dishwasher and hair dryer.

Surrounded by fruit and palm trees in intimate gardens the pool terrace with sunbeds, shaded seating, alfresco dining and BBQ areas makes an excellent place to relax in, spot the odd dolphin or turtle, or just enjoy the wooden gullet boats gliding by. At the end of the day enjoy the magnificent sunset with a glass of wine. If you manage to drag yourself away from Villa Bella, there are a handful of bars and restaurants, where good quality food is served. Kisla also has 2 popular beach clubs for swimming, snorkeling & watersports. The Mahal beach club, with one of the ten best views of the world (Sunday Times), is a 3 minute walk. For a wider choice of shops, restaurants (120!) and bars Kalkan is a 5 minutes ride by sea or road or a 20 mins walk. In the season there is a ‘free’ water-taxi shuttling between Kisla beach club and Kalkan harbour.

Villa Bella is the perfect holiday accommodation if you are looking for total peace and tranquility in an amazing location.

About Lisette and Frenk

We are Lisette and Frenk. We are Dutch and presently live in Amsterdam. We like to travel around the world. We lived and worked many years abroad in countries in Africa, South Asia and the Americas. We searched in Europe for three years for a holiday home and accidently decided to have a look in Turkey. We found our piece of paradise in Kalkan, a seaside village with a wonderful atmosphere and a tropical feel..

Why Lisette and Frenk chose Kalkan

Kalkan is magical. The centre still resembles the Greek village it used to be long time ago. People are friendly and hospitable. Villa Bella is situated in the area called Kisla. Its a quieter spot than in the lively centre of Kalkan yet near enough for easy access by free water taxi across the bay during day in the main season (May to October), by taxi or by a 20 minutes easy stroll along the seaside.

What makes this villa unique

The most important characteristic of the villa is the open view over the Kalkan Bay and the hills on the opposite side. The neighbouring, identical villa was amongst the 20 best seaside villas according to the Sunday Times in 2010. There are two beach clubs only minutes walking from Villa Bella, almost on the same level which is unusual for Kalkan. The Mahal beach club was chosen to have one of the ten best views of the world.

Absolutley stunning,an amazing villa.

  • 5 of 5

We booked and stayed at Villa Bella for our honeymoon, the property did not disappoint and was exactly as described,On arrival at the villa we were greeted with a gift and a card from the owners Frenk and Lisette to congratulate us on our marriage and the bedroom had been decorated with fresh flowers and red roses, an extra special touch!

Villa Bella is well maintained inside and out, the pool/patio area where you spend most of your time is equipped with everything you need to relax and soak up the sun and take in the amazing views it offers, the infinity pool is perfect to take a dip and cool off.

The Villa is situated within easy reach of Kalkan either by local taxi or taxi boat where you can enjoy a variety of great restaurant's.

Frenk and Lisette made the whole process of booking our stay at Villa Bella very simple, including organising our transfers to and from the airport and also supplying information with regards to the local area.

Everything about our Honeymoon has been made all the more memorable by having Villa Bella as our home for a week, so much so that we have already booked for next year.

Thank you Frenk and Lisette we look forward to our next stay at Villa Bella.

Owner's Response: Thank you for the wonderful review. While we stayed in next-door villa Olive Tree (OD 1881646), you were perfect neighbours. Your memorable stay wouldn’t have been possible without the efforts of our local management. When you left, it was like saying goodbye to friends. We are looking forward to welcome you next year!

Wonderful Villa

  • 5 of 5

This was our second stay at beautiful Villa Bella. It's well equipped with good space for two couples or a family. We particlarly love the quiet outdoor area, so relaxing with super comfy sun loungers and plenty of furniture options to sit and enjoy the stunning views. The Kisla area is wonderul to stay in with the convenience of the water taxi into Kalkan town, and a gentle stroll to Bobs cafe and bar on hand easily. The Neighbouring Villla, Olive Tree is also lovely. Frank & Lisette's communication is always excellent and Muhammet the property manager was always on hand for queries or assistance. We really hope to return next year!

exceptional villa with views to die for

  • 5 of 5

Villa Bella is a beautiful villa with wonderful views.Homely and modern with everything you need to make your stay perfect. The pool and terrace are a perfect place to relax and watch the boats sail by. The interior is decorated to a high standard and very comfortable.

Muhemmet greeted us on arrival with a more then generous welcome pack due to our late arrival which was extremely appreciated. His hospitality continued during the holiday he did a very good job.

Owners Frenk & Lisette provided useful and helpful information and were extremely helpful with any questions we had. We look forward to enjoying many more holidays in this beautiful villa.

Review #17817501 “Luxury, Refurbished Sea Front Villa, Stunning Sea Views, Private Infinity Pool”

★ ★ ★ ★ ★

We were so lucky to find this absolute gem of a villa - everything was as described but that view......WOW! Yes, it is a 15 minute walk into Kalkan but you have more than earned a delicious meal when you get there and of course you can hop on the water taxi or get a taxi if you don't fancy the walk. You are spoilt for choice in Kalkan and we were never disappointed. Villa Bella is so comfortable and Frenk and Lisette were very welcoming and helpful. We took a trip to the Saklikent Gorge which we all enjoyed (especially the teenagers) and spent lots of time at Mahal Beach Club which is literally 2 mins from Villa Bella. Great food and watersports. I cannot recommend this villa enough and we will definitely be back!

Owner's Response: You are absolutely welcome to Villa Bella again and also to more adventures in Saklikent gorge, the Sunken City or Patara ruins and beach.

Bella Villa Bella

  • 5 of 5

Our second visit to Villa Bella without a single problem thanks to the excellent organisation and communication of the owners Frenk and Lisette. The beautiful villa is maintained to an exceptionally high standard in the quiet area of Kisla, with panoramic views of the bay from the terrace. The beach club is just a few minutes walk away with free sun beds and a choice of water sports and only a 5 minute ferry or car ride to the delightful town of Kalkan where the choice of restaurants is endless.

There's a charm and beauty here that we are reluctant to share. Try it and you'll see why. We defy you to be disappointed!

Our second visit to paradise !

  • 5 of 5

We have recently returned from our second visit to Villa Bella .

We had to return as we thought our first visit was a dream but can now confirm it wasn't and Villa Bella really is a piece of paradise .

The communication from the owners is brilliant and the management team cannot do enough.

We will definitely be returning for a third visit to this beautiful villa .

Owner's Response: Thank you! It’s the enthusiasm and feedback of guests like you that stimulates us to reach for the highest standards. Without our lovely guests and without the Turkish hospitality and the setting in Kalkan, this would never be possible.

Special interest holidays:

Take a trip to one of the many magnificent historical sites such as Xanthos, Tlos or Myra and Kekova, and discover how the Romans, Lycians and Ottomans lived.

Kalkan is ideal for all types of water activities. The Bay has a Blue Flag Award for cleanliness and is ideal for learning to sail or water ski. Or take a PADI diving course. Turtles, sting ray, squid, octopus, garfish and barracuda are regularly spotted. Try dives available for children aged 10 and over. Keen walkers & hikers can explore parts of the ancient Lycian Way which passes directly through the town. On Patara Beach are early morning horse ridding sessions and in the summer yoga classes are available on the sea front at Villa Mahal. Kalkan will inspire any photographer or painter with numerous photo and painting opportunities so don't forget to bring your camera and brushes.

Must do's when in Kalkan: a day trip to Kekova/Simena, Saklikent Gorge and a boat trip on Kalkan Bay.


The villa is 3 minutes stroll to both Kisla beach club (which offers the 5 min.'free' water taxi to Kalkan harbour) with its gently shelving blue flag pebble beach and the Mahal beach club, with its stunning sun bathing platforms and 5 star dining. The nature reserve Patara Beach, 18km of beautiful unspoilt sandy beach with ancient ruins and nesting turtles is only a 20 min. car/local bus ride away. The stunning Kaputas beach, a small beach at the bottom of a gorge with turquoise blue water is just a 5 min. drive.


Dalaman is the nearest international airport. Transfer times are approx 1hr 30 mins by car. We will gladly arrange transfers for you but it is easy to hire a car at the airport and drive yourself. Transfers are private and cost approx £60 each way from Dalaman airport. Alternatively, Antalya airport is around 3 hours drive from Kalkan. For this villa renting a car is advisable although you can manage without and rely on the water taxi/road taxis and small local shops.


Some local shops, bars and restaurants are within walking distance of the villa. It is a 3 minutes gentle walk to the sea side and 2 beach clubs. There is a 'free' water taxi to Kalkan all day until late evening (high season). Kalkan is a 5 minute drive. Nearest town is Kas, a 30 min drive away on a coastal road with stunning scenery. Many historical sites are within a 45 minute drive of Kalkan. Other places of interest are Saklikent Gorge, and the traditional villages of Bezirgan and Islamlar.

Further Details:

In Kalkan there are several larger town centre supermarkets that will deliver. Kalkan has 5 major banks all with cash machines accepting most credit cards plus a local post office. There are English speaking doctors and a dentist if required. Don’t miss the experience of a Turkish bath or hamam at The Atlantis well being centre, where there is also a small gym for fitness enthusiasts. Kalkan is well known for its array of excellent restaurants high up on roof terraces in the old town or by the harbour. Don't miss the traditional eateries like Belgin's Kitchen with authentic Turkish food, live Turkish music and the chance to smoke a water pipe. Or the small kebab houses, pizza and pancake restaurants.

Kalkan offers something to suit all tastes. This elegant harbour town is situated on Turkey’s gorgeous Lycian Coast within an area of outstanding natural beauty which is steeped in ancient history. Comparatively untouched by mass development, this picturesque resort lies in a lovely bay. It offers far more than the average sun and sea holiday. Take a trip to one of the nearby historical sites, drive a jeep up into the mountains, hike the Lycian Way, enjoy a canyoning trip at the second largest Gorge of Europe, cruise on a gullet or simply relax at the 18 km unspoilt beach of Patara.
