About the property

Villa near Calis Beach, Fethiye, Aegean Region, Turkey - Ideal For Family/Friends Sharing, 6-8 mins Walk To Beaches. Fethiye 15 Mins By Bus - Stop Opposite

Relax in the luxury and comfort of this beautiful air conditioned villa. At night - dine alfresco overlooking the lit pool and adjacent forest. By day, dip in and out of the private pool, sunbathing on the surrounding terrace and gated gardens. There's a child's splash pool, outside hot and cold power-shower and BBQ. The owner, Marcia, who is an artist has created beautiful pebble murals on the villa wall and pillars near the pool (see photo). You'll see further evidence of her original art on the walls and elegant decor of the villa.

After cooling off in the pool, pop inside for a glass of ice-cold water, or hot drink, on tap from the kitchen dispenser.

For your convenience, Villa Loumar has fast (free) wi-fi throughout and on the balconies. The local restaurants and nearby beach clubs also all have free wi-fi.

All bedrooms have ensuite bathrooms with fabulous power showers. The top floor bedroom has a jacuzzi bath. You'll need to put it on a low setting as it has wonderfully strong power jets - but don't worry about flooding the bathroom because it has a glass surround!

Cool marble floors and air-conditioning throughout.

Villa Loumar is ideally situated on the corner of a quiet residential street in Koca Calis village, within 6-8 minutes level walk (less than 400m) to local beaches and supermarkets, 2 minutes walk from an outdoor garden Internet cafe offering free wi fi. 5 minutes by local taxi (or Dolmus from the Surf Cafe Beach) to Calis beach with its pretty promenade, shops and numerous cafes, 15 minutes dolmus ride (bus stop at villa) to Fethiye which offers harbour cruises, great shopping, a fantastic weekly market and dining out in the old city under canopies of trees hung with lights.

The famous lagoon beach resort of Olu Deniz is a 25 minute bus journey from Fethiye and offers lively evening entertainment, clubs, music, dining and dancing.

A brand new road and pavements have recently been built alongside the villa which is adjacent to a lush green forest, making it even easier to walk a few minutes to the beach or to local small supermarkets.

The local beach clubs all have restaurants, free wi-fi and free sun beds by the water's edge. Lie down in a hammock and watch the sunset at The Surf Cafe Beach Club, just 6 mins walk from the villa. Most of these beach clubs offer evening entertainment such as BBQ buffet nights with belly dancing, or fire-eating entertainment.

For a livelier atmosphere, there's a shuttle bus (dolmus) leaving every few minutes from The Surf Cafe to Calis Beach Promenade which is lined with restaurants and hotels. And, of course, the delightful harbour town of Fethiye is only a 20 minute dolmus journey away - or you can pick up a water taxi to go there from Calis Beach.

The villa is ideally located for all these local attractions. The pool and garden are serviced daily, and our excellent, English speaking local agents clean the villa before arrival and are on the spot to help should you require it. You'll find their brochure in the villa.

For added security, the villa is burglar alarmed (there are also security grills on doors and windows). Windows have mosquito nets fitted but please don't leave windows open when the air-con is on.

All in all, we think you'll find Villa Loumar a delightful base for your holiday. We hope you'll love it as much as we do!

About Marcia Kuperberg

Hi, My name is Marcia and I own Villa Loumar with my husband, Lou.

We bought the villa off plan after spending some wonderful holidays in this spectacularly beautiful area in and around Fethiye. The building was only completed in December 2011 so our first year of enjoying the villa was 2012. We came with our daughter and twin grandchildren who declared it was their best holiday ever! Other holiday makers seem to agree.

As a well known practising London artist I have decorated the rooms with lovely original artwork for your pleasure.

We have put our villa in the hands of helpful and efficient agents situated nearby in Calis Beach. They will liaise with you before, during and after your booking to ensure you have a great time. Happy Holidays!

Marcia Kuperberg purchased this villa in 2011

Why Marcia Kuperberg chose Fethiye

We fell in love with this area near Fethiye- azure blue seas, surrounded by mountains. The villa is ideally located for a relaxing holiday only 6 mins walk to nearest beach club. We love the atmosphere of these clubs because you can dine under umbrellas in their gardens that border the sand and sea - sunbathe (free) on sunbeds or bean bags - and dip in and out of the sea - safe bathing. Calis beach has a promenade bordered by many shops and restaurants - five minutes drive from the villa or Dolmus from beach club. At night one can take a peaceful stroll along the front and watch the glowing lights of Fethiye across the bay. Fethiye, 10-15 minutes by dolmus, has harbour cruises and a great weekly market. Shop in the 'old city' and dine outdoors under canopies of light-strung trees.

What makes this villa unique

Villa has fast, free wi-fi throughout and on balconies.

There's a handy ice-water and instant hot water (for tea/coffee) dispenser in the kitchen.

Private pool and child's pool and outside flower-filled terraces are perfect for swimming, shaded relaxation or sunbathing. There's a fab fast-flow hot/cold outdoor shower.

BBQ and shaded terrace for alfresco dining are part shaded by overhanging grape vines. Passion-fruit vines surround the terrace and pool areas for added privacy.

The villa is very conveniently situated - within a 6 minute stroll to different types of beaches - 2 minutes from a friendly garden Internet cafe, the Angel, with free wi fi, within handy reach of small supermarkets.

There are loads of local attractions - see brochure in the villa, or ask our agent.

The gated garden and pools are tended daily and the villa cleaned with bedlinen changed before arrival.

Additional villa clean & linen changes & 'welcome' pack - water, milk, bread, jam, butter, eggs, tea, coffee, sugar -are optional extras. Just ask.

Besides relaxing, swimming, shopping, sunbathing and dining under the stars, there's a wide range of water sports available in high season from the near-bye Surf Cafe Beach Clubs and nearby Calis beach.

Wonderful stay in beautiful villa

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful stay for 2 weeks, the villa is situated in a pleasant area close to a bar and restaurant and couple of shops. Easy to travel by dolmus to local areas. The villa itself is beautiful and clean we had a fantastic stay, a couple of minor snags where sorted by rainbow properties ( who look after the villa) very quickly and we would have no worries of booking with them again.

Everything you could possibly need is available in the villa it is immaculate with a beautiful pool and garden area, we would stay here again in a heartbeat

Superb property, highly recommended

  • 5 of 5

My holiday was a stunning success. The villa itself is beautiful, obviously built to high standards and decorated with loving care. The original paintings in each room suit the decor and quality furnishings so well.

The garden and pool were being very well maintained, with someone coming by each day to check on it.

The location is very convenient within a few minutes walk to a cafe/bar and local small supermarkets. There is just a short walk to the Surf Cafe beach with others nearby. Also convenient is the Dolmus shuttle bus (10 min turnaround) terminus for the bigger Calis Beach Promenade and shops with easy access to Fethiye. There I found plenty of excursions, including the 12 island excursion that I particularly enjoyed. The clear water of the bays that we entered was great for swimming. I was also impressed by the friendliness of the Turkish people wherever I went and their excellent customer service.

The owner and manager both provided excellent service. I had ordered a taxi to take me back to the airport, but my phone was not working well. The manager must have contacted the taxi driver to tell him I was worried about being picked up on time. He came by earlier in the day to meet me and re-assure me.

I would highly recommend this property to any of my friends and relatives.

Owner's Response: We are so glad you and your family enjoyed our lovely villa so much. We are aware that you came all the way from Australia! We take pride in providing those little extras that we think our guests will enjoy - e.g. the hot and iced water dispenser in the kitchen, wi-fi throughout, hot and cold shower outside on the terrace by the pool. We are also delighted that our property management company who organised your transport to and from the airport asked them to pop in to see you personally when your phone was not working. That is typical of them. Being on the spot, they are reliable - fast responding and personable, which is reassuring for us as well as our guests. We look forward to welcoming you (and friends and relatives) back to our villa in the future for other great holidays!

Villa near the beach

  • 5 of 5

The villa had everything listed in the description and it was easy to get there from Dalaman airport by taxi. The area is quiet and the villa was clean and everything worked fine.We especially appreciated the shaded terrace where we had all our home cooked meals (small foodshop 4 minutes' walk away) and the pool area for relaxing and a bit of exercise. The beach is close and the owners recommended good restaurants and a stroll along the nearby promenade with smaller shops, Turkish baths and plenty of restaurants. One can also reach Fethiye town easily. In Fethiye there is a huge market to explore and a fish restaurant where you first buy your fish and then take it to the restaurant you choose for cooking it. We were also recommended to take a coach trip to ?ludeniz, a small seaside town with cosy streets and a beautiful beach beneath a mountain where they do paragliding. We had a great holiday in the villa and would gladly recommend it to all our friends!

Superb family villa

  • 5 of 5

Villa Loumar is an altogether superb family villa situated in a delightful part of Turkey in a very quiet residential area close to the beach. We arrived late evening and were greeted by a very friendly agent who kindly popped out and fetched some basic provisions and a nice bottle of wine! The villa was spacious and clean with a very inviting pool which we made use of every day throughout our stay, including our very first evening. All the rooms and bathrooms are well presented, there are plenty of outside chairs and tables and a built in BBQ, and a great hot/cold shower outside which we used all the time. The pool and patio is cleaned every 2-3 days which is needed since there is fair amount of dust generated from the road outside which has yet to be finished. The villa is very well positioned for day excursions to places like Saklikent Gorge, the Blue Lagoon at Oludinez and Dalyan, all of which are great days out for everyone. The local beach is lovely with a great sea breeze which attracts locals and visitors who enjoy windsurfing and kite surfing. The owner of the villa was very helpful and responsive before, during and after our stay, and we would have no hesitation recommending Villa Loumar to anyone who fancies a trip to this delightful part of Turkey.

Owner's Response: We love our villa, so it gives us great pleasure to know that another family has also enjoyed a holiday there. We're always aiming to improve so every time we go, we try to add something to make a better experience. Most recently (last May), we added more original paintings, a hand-painted mural over the fireplace, and four beanbag chairs to match the outdoor furniture. Thank you, Nick and Michele, for your lovely review - we hope you will come again soon!

Surf Club Cafe Beach, Koca Calis

Villa Loumar is in a fantastically convenient location, near to the beach (400 m - 6 mins level stroll to the Surf Cafe Beach), local small supermarkets (within five minutes walk), with a lovely outdoor cafe/bar two minutes walk away. Lining the beach is a series of beach clubs. Here you can dine very economically in their lovely gardens, or be served at the water's edge on sunbeds under umbrellas (provided free). Each beach club has its own unique atmosphere and all have free wi-fi.

Calis beach, is another (livelier) area which is just a 5 minute dolmus ride from the villa's nearest beach club, The Surf Cafe. Calis Beach has a promenade lined with shops and restaurants. The Surf Cafe beach club is a location where you can catch dolmus buses to many local tourist spots. Fethiye is 15-20 minutes by dolmus and offers harbour cruises, extensive shopping, fabulous weekly market and dining. Lively coastal resort of Olu Deniz is 25 mins by bus from Fethiye.


The nearest airport is Dalaman, 45 minutes by car to the villa. Having a car is not essential as beaches are within walking distance and a minibus (dolmus) stops right outside the villa. However if you want to hire a car, we can arrange that through our agents. There's a taxi rank around the corner, about 4 minutes walk from the villa, or you can phone the rank. Taxis are very economical.


400m - 6 mins stroll - to nearby beach clubs with restaurants, free sun beds & umbrellas.

5 mins drive to Calis beach or 5 mins by Dolmus from nearby Surf Cafe.

Try the water taxi from Fethiye to Calis - like a 20 minute mini cruise.

15-20 minutes bus ride to Fethiye - delightful harbour town.

Oludeniz, 'the blue paradise', is 25 minutes by bus from Fethiye - bright lights, clubs, bars, music, dining & dancing. Ovacik is 4km from Oludeniz on the Fethiye road. Hisaronu, another lively resort, is between Ovackik & Oludeniz.

Further Details:

A very handy and friendly Internet garden cafe, "The Angel" (formerly "Escape Cafe/Bar"), is just 2 minutes walk from the villa. Wi-fi is free. You can take a 5 min walk to one or two small local supermarkets. You can also arrange to have your supplies delivered to your door.

Beach clubs and beaches (sand and shingle), and small supermarkets are about 6 minutes level walk. Also enjoy the busier beach and promenade at Calis beach, within a 5 minute ride away by dolmus or taxi.

Fethiye has a weekly market on Tuesday, Calis (pronounced 'Chalis') on Sunday. When in Fethiye, you must try the fish market: buy your fish there and take it to one of the adjacent restaurants under the trees to cook it for you.

Plentiful banks and ATMs in Calis and Fethiye.

Cruise around the 12 islands of Fethiye, stopping around 5 times to swim, sunbathe or have lunch on board.

Have a Turkish bath - an experience you won't forget.

Take a water taxi from Fethiye to Calis - 25 minute mini cruise.

Sit at the harbour in Fethiye, enjoy a drink and watch the world go by. In the cool of the evening experience exciting shopping and souvenir hunting in the old city, and eat outside under lit-up canopies of trees.

Enjoy a sunset in Calis - known for some of the best in the world.

Go to the lively lagoon and beach resort of Oludeniz (25 minutes by bus from central Fethiye) for para gliding, clubbing, shopping and night life.

Do at least one excursion from jeep safari, boat trips, paragliding, scuba diving, horse riding, mud baths at Dalyan, Turkish bath, Rhodes, rent a speed boat, see Kas - Kalkan - Kekova.
