“A wonderful villa with breathtaking views, equipped with everything you need for a fabulous holiday!”

My husband and I decided to holiday here with our friends for 10 days in July. The villa is situated right at the top of a steep hill, providing guests with the most spectacular view of Kalkan and the surrounding area. It is not overlooked, and the days (& evenings) were as peaceful or as lively as we wished to make them! Villa Hilal was spotlessly clean and everything had been carefully thought over - right down to the fish grilling basket rack for the BBQ! The pool is delightful and kept very clean by the gardener, who visited early every morning before we were awake. The bedrooms in the villa were very comfortable, as were the bathrooms and living areas. The outdoor cooking appliances were good quality, and we certainly enjoyed revelling in the culinary delights Kalkan had to offer. From booking the villa, right through to receiving our damages deposit back, Mike (owner) was always swift in replying to any questions or problems we encountered. Whilst at the villa, we had a minor issue with the shower drain in the downstairs bathroom. I emailed Mike that evening informing him of the situation and by 10am the following morning a plumber had fixed the shower. We truly fell in love with Kalkan, and villa Hilal, and are already discussing our next visit! Thank you so much for letting us stay at your villa Mike and Janet, we absolutely loved it and WILL be back!

“A fabulous villa with panoramic views and full of wonderful touches”
Reviewed November 11, 2013 for a stay in September 2013

We had a wonderful holiday staying in this beautiful villa. The size and layout of Villa Hillal was perfect and we really appreciated the "traditional Turkish features" such as the outdoor seating area where we enjoyed a glass or two of wine whilst watching the gorgeous sunsets!

The villa is located at the top of a very steep hill-can certainly see where thevilla gets its name from!It is quite a workout going up this hill but the views and location make it worth whille!

We loved visiting the Sunday market in Akbel and purchasing our fruit & vegetables,
along with delicoius local cheeses, olives,nuts and fish-the locals are really friendly and the prices are unbelievable!

Kalkan is such a delight and the choice and quality of the restaurants and bars are incredible! Can't wait to return and experience it all over again!

“A beautiful secluded luxurious villa”
Reviewed September 30, 2013 for a stay in September 2013

Had the most fantastic holiday in the beautiful Villa Hilal. It had everything we wanted, close to the village of Akbel and with in easy reach of Kalkan. The facilities were fantastic, the swimming pool the cleanest I have ever experienced in a rented property. We only left the villa at night to go and eat in the fabulous restaurants in kalkan! our favourite being Sade. We couldn't bring ourselves to leave the villa during the day it was so comfortable. Thank you Mike for letting us rent your lovely villa. We definitely would like to return.

Beautiful placee!!!! This villa was amazing, great views, nice beaches, good food within walking distance in the town of Akbel and very nice people...Kalkan will definetely grow to be a major tourist destination in the upcoming years. The villa is a home away from home, it has everything you need to make your stay enjoyable and comfortable. Mike and Janet (villa owners) really help you with anything you need. The villa is one of the highest ont he mountain so the view is amazing and the town of Akbel is just 5 mins away so you can get all your groceries or even sit down at the restaurants which have good food. I would definetely recommend this villa. Cant wait to go again!

“Lovely villa, a home from home, except for the lovely pool & beautiful views.”

Set high enough to command fantastic views, yet within easy access-5minutes walk- to the lovely village of Akbel, or a short taxi/dolmus ride to the busy harbour of Kalkan. Villa Hilal is set in a very secluded corner but is not far from the town if you want to enjoy the bright lights & bustle of the restaurants & markets. We enjoyed 2 weeks of chilling by the pool & wandered into Kalkan just a few times to accommodate our teenage girls, they really enjoyed the shops & being made a fuss of by the charming Turkish waiters. We can highly recommend Akbel restaurant where the lovely Aysun & her parents will be only to willing to make you feel at home & their food is the cheapest in Kalkan. Would also recommend Aqua Cafe Bar restaurant on the Kalamar Road, Turkish & a broad range of European foods at very reasonable prices. We also did a "Try Scuba Diving" day with the Dolphin Scuba Team. You'll find their boat in the harbour, but get there before 0930. You only need a towel & your cossie + £40 per person approx. They provide everything else, excellent value for money. We really hope to revisit Villa Hilal in the not too distant future & cannot thank Janet & Mike enough for allowing us the privilege of renting their beautiful villa.
