The luxurious and comfortable Villa Diana
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.

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.

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.
