Top 5 Things to do in Alanya

Alanya Castle – Historical with Majestic Views You will Love

Alanya is famous for its 13th Century Castle jutting into the Mediterranean Sea. Take the Gondola to the top (250 metres high or 820 Feet) and experience breathtaking views.

The castle wall is 6.5 km in circumference with architecture dating back to Seljuk era. Stroll around the castle and appreciate Cleopatra beach, East beach and Alanya harbour.

Alanya castle was built in the 13th century by the Seljuk Sultanate of Rome, when the city was overthrown by Alaeddin Keykubad I. Alaeddin built Alanya Castle ( Kizil Kule) on the remnants of previous Byzantine era and Roman era fortifications. Years following this, Ottoman empire took control and used it as a defence against pirates. A number of villas were built within the castle walls during the 19th Century.

Alanya Harbour – Immerse Yourself in the Turkish Culture

Relax in a Turkish cafe and watch the local fishing boats coming and going with their daily catch. Tourists go on an adventure around the castle on pirate ships. Stroll along the harbour and immerse yourself in the Turkish culture. The backdrop of the red tower and the Taurus mountains is spectacular.

Alanya Caves, steep and long, but worth the walk – Enjoy the stunning Damlatas caves and Dim Cayi caves. They are fascinating, the walk is steep and long but worth it. After this great experience I highly recommend lunch at Dim Cayi or the cafe at the caves which has amazing views overlooking Dim Cayi valley.

Turkish Baths- go as soon as you arrive in Alanya – No visit to Alanya is complete without a Turkish bath. Go straight away as it will remove dead skin and help you get a great tan. The best Turkish bath experience is in Oba. In addition to the bath, you are taken to the salt room, mud baths, steam room, plunge pool, sauna, and eventually a massage.

Turkish Barber / Kofer – Probably the best barber experience in the world – Highly recommended. Probably the best barber experience in the world. Enjoy a professional wet shave, a hair cut, followed by a massage. Then enjoy a refreshing cup of Turkish tea or cayi. Great experience you will love and feel amazing after.

Our Story

In 2005, John Paul Donnelly, began his luxury villa journey. He spent three years building resorts and holiday apartments in Alanya, Turkey, along with his brother, Joe. The concept was to create the most luxurious villas on the Turkish coastline and provide clients, along with their family and friends, the opportunity to enjoy exclusive holidays together.

By 2008, after the successful development of 3 resorts, JP had well and truly fallen into the world of villa rentals. With a portfolio of 6 villas and a desire to explore new places, he decided it was time to take the villa rental business outside of Turkey. He wanted to give his clients access to beautiful holiday rentals in destinations across the globe.

The expanding villa rental company was rebranded in 2011 to 5 Star Villa Holidays, and today 5 Star Villa Holidays offers over 10,000 luxury villas around the world.

JP and his partner, Helena are currently travelling the globe, devoted to hand selecting the best villas and property management companies, and giving them their stamp of approval! 5 Star Villa Holidays' ambition goes beyond being an ordinary holiday rental company.
