Guestbook comments from the owner

“What a holiday is for”

Just returned from a most enjoyable holiday in Calis staying at Villa Sofia. On arrival we were all impressed how spacious and comfortable the villa was. Louise has thought of everything, even DVD's and games for a relaxing night in, it is a three bed, three bath over two levels, plenty of space for our party of four, would easily accommodate larger parties. The gardens and outside areas are well maintained, with the opportunity to pick fruit from the trees, pool cleaned daily. The villa is in Koca Calis which is the far end of Calis prom, set in a small residential area, this is not a problem as within minutes walk there is a taxi stance or you can catch the Dolmus into Fethiye, two local shops close by. 15-20 minute walk into Calis and along the prom, where there are many restaurants to chose from. You can catch the water taxi to Fethiye, where we would recommend a meal at the fish market.

Paragliding was the best experience ever - AWESOME!!!! Try it!!!

Special interest holidays:

For guests feeling more energetic, there is a water sports cafe/beach bar walking distance (10 minutes) offering kite surfing, windsurfing and many other water pursuits that you can book.

There are lots of things to do in the surrounding area of Calis such as island boat trips, a trip to Dalyan and the mud baths, visit the deserted village of Kayakoy or walking/rafting through the gorge at Saklikent. All of these can be booked through local agents on the beach front in Calis. For the more adventurous there is quad biking, off road motorcycle tours, jeep safaris, horse riding, paragliding, scuba diving and water sports and private bookings only for outdoor pursuits ie archery and abseiling. (Details at the Villa).

Wanting a more relaxing afternoon ladies, book into the local hotel apartments facing the beach front for a traditional Turkish bath, massage and various beauty treatments. You can walk to this (15 minutes) or take a taxi for a quick 5 minute drive along the beach front.

Coast/Beach:

You are a short stroll from the local beach where there are a few good local restaurants serving food all day offering sunbeds and waiter service for those who do not wish to miss out on any sunbathing. Feeling more energetic? There is a water sports cafe/beach bar offering kite surfing, windsurfing and many other water pursuits. This stretch of the Turkish coastline is known as the 'Turkish Riviera or Turquoise Coast' and is fast becoming one of the most popular holiday destinations in Europe.

Travel:

Villa Sofia is only a 40 minute drive from Dalaman International Airport.

If you do not wish to hire a car, there is a taxi-rank just a short walk from the villa. It is also possible to take the Dolmus (local mini bus) to all local destinations for a few lira.

Distances:

Villa Sofia is in a quiet area with just a couple of shops in easy walking distance as is the beach (10 minute walk). Fethiye is the next larger town which is about a 15 minute car drive but you can get the local Dolmus which takes about 20 minutes. The village of Ciflik Koy is on the other side of the main Dalaman road. Although there is not much there I do recommend that you drive to the Turkish breakfast restaurant (or taxi) - such a delight you will not forget the fresh local made food!

Further Details:

In the nearby town of Calis there is an abundance of bars and restaurants nestled alongside the pedestrianised boulevard and long beach. From here you can enjoy the stunning sea views looking across the bay to Fethiye and watch every evening for the most amazing burnt orange sunsets while enjoying a cocktail or local beer.

The large bustling town of Fethiye is only a 15 minute car drive away, or you can take a leisurely boat taxi to the marina from Calis. There is a wide range of bars and restaurants and excellent shopping for unusual gifts and nik naks, not forgetting the famous Fethiye Tuesday market which is a must to go and experience where you can stock up on your local feta cheese, olives and designer clothes and sample local kebabs and pancakes. There is also the Calis market on Sunday but slightly smaller. (Don't forget to take the trolly from under the stairs!)

What a stunning beautiful Villa! Best one we've ever stayed in! Home from home - highly recommend

  • 5 of 5

Wow! Thank you for letting us stay at Villa Sofia. Immaculately clean, light and spacious. The pool and garden are beautiful - particularly in the evening when the pool lights are on and fancy a dip! We even picked grapes. The covered terrace area was a god send to have some time out of the sun but still allowed us to see the pool and watch the children. The photo's do not do it justice! A big thing for us is wifi - for work and for teenagers which worked super fast!! Time out for the kids was the Xbox for about an hour in the afternoon (giving us parents chill out time).. Villa Sofia is in a lovely location and everything is easily accessible within walking distance such as the little corner shop for everyday goodies which also does the most amazing pancakes, to walking up to the beach for breakfast or spending a day on the sun loungers. There is lots to do and my son signed himself up for kite surfing which he thoroughly enjoyed! This holiday we decided on not renting a car and found the taxi service just up the road was really very good and we just called our driver direct to collect us and drop us off. Fabulous location - we are definitely booking next year!!!

Lovely 2 weeks July 2018

  • 5 of 5

Stayed for two weeks at the end of July. This was our second time in the villa and again had an amazing time. The villa is lovely with everything you could possibly need and getting about either by dolmus or taxi is just so easy. Beach and restaurants are within walking distance and as well as a couple of shops to buy any basics that you need from day to day. Best of all is the amazing climate, my fourth time in Turkey and I have never not woken to a hot sunny day.

Would thoroughly recommend

Best Villa in which we've every stayed!!

  • 5 of 5

As a family we've had villa holidays on European mainland, 3 x Canary and 2 x Balaeric Islands, Cyprus and Turkey (Dalyan, Kalkan and Calis). I can honestly say this is the best accommodation in which we've ever stayed with a full range of facilities comparable with the best. We'd already fallen in love with Calis's relaxed way of life and Villa Sophia is located on a remote cul-de-sac within easy access of local shops, taxi's and around a 15 min walk to the beach. The generous pool size, with stepped access, provides opportunity for a good swim and the enclosed grounds has a small grassed area providing space for a "small kick around" or a gentle game of badminton. Night lights make the area attractive at night. It may not sound much but the icing on the cake for us proved to be the orientation of the villa which ensures the large balcony area remains in shade from around 10am onward offering a cooler respite area from the sun when at it's strongest. A Fabulous Villa. We've now found our home from home in our favourite resort. If your looking for a secluded holiday with all the comforts of home look no further than Villa Sophia. Highly recommended.

Fantastic holiday

  • 5 of 5

We had a fantastic two weeks at Villa Sofia. The villa is lovely, in a good position close to the beach and restaurants and a couple of little local shops. It is about a 25 minute walk to Calis, you could get a dolmos which is extremely cheap or a taxi which are also reasonably priced. Louise was brilliant and really helpful with everything from beginning to end. Would not hesitiate to recommend the villa and would definitely go back in the near future.

Fantastic Villa

  • 5 of 5

Villa Sofia exceeded all our expectations, it was home from home spotless clean and so well equipped, we didn't want for anything.

Marian and Phil were extremely helpful and the pool guy taught us a little Turkish, the pool area is amazing so much space and very comfy sunbeds I had no trouble falling asleep !! Out and about the beaches are beautiful and the tumble dryer breeze is most welcome watching the kite surfers and wind sailers all which you can try if you are brave enough at the surf centre who also provide free sunbeds and big bean bags and do a great lunch menu very reasonably priced, if you go into Fethyie a must is the little boat serving belick eckmec (fried fish in bread) it was delicious and the setting was perfect we had a trip to sakikent gorge brilliant freezing water and a very interesting walk then onto yaka park for a very tasty trout lunch and finishing with a walk around the old walled city of Tlos all in all a fantastic 2 weeks in a beautiful villa perfect weather would highly recommended big thanks Louise and the team xx

A home away from home

  • 5 of 5

We have just returned from a fabulous two week stay at Villa Sofia.

The villa is very clean and spacious with all mod cons set in a really quiet location.

Beautiful pool to enjoy a refreshing dip.

We hired a car and found that within a few minutes you are at Chalis beach where you are spoilt for choice with restaurants. We ate out almost every night and did not have a poor meal anywhere.

Already thinking about revisiting again!!!
