We went to Beyli Han for some early season sun at the beginning of April – attracted by the gorgeous villa pictures on the Korsan Kalkan website and the stunning value Turkey offers.

It was everything we had hoped for and more – possibly the best villa with the very best views in the whole of lovely Kalkan. The villa is superbly managed by Korsan Villas (once a gas bottle ran out and a man came round to replace it 10 minutes after I had phoned the villa manager). We didn’t arrive till 2am but Mustafa stayed up to welcome us. Nothing was too much trouble.

The villa really does have everything including all the Sky and BT Sport channels (you won’t miss a game) and Nickelodeon (so the kids can watch Peppa Pig!).

Best of all is that gorgeous infinity pool with uninterrupted views of the pretty bay below. We ate out a lot – rarely more than £50 for a family of five with booze and the food was delicious.

The villa is so huge that two families could easily stay there and not be at all cramped.

All the Turks we met were unfailingly helpful and thrilled that we had travelled to their country.

The scenery surrounding the villa – in fact the scenery all the way down the Western coast of Turkey – is stunning: breathtaking and surprisingly green mountains.

Do please travel to Beyli Han because Turkey’s tourism is suffering badly from all the recent political uncertainty but there has never been a better time to go this truly stunning country.
