Great villa, clean, comfortable, good location with a wonderful local management team who provide fresh bread each morning and will get things for you ( water etc) as required. The swimming pool whilst small is well maintained as is the garden and very enjoyable when the weather is hot. Nice walk into Kalkan, about 10 minutes and not too steep a climb back in the evening. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and hope to book again for next year.
Recommended for: Age 55+, adventure seekers, tourists without a car, families with teenagers and romantic getaway
We were really pleased with the villa and the stunning views, we had such a relaxing holiday. The villa had everything we needed and we would not hesitate to recommend it to family and friends. D. Cliens.
We had a superb holiday in Kalkan and were very impressed with the villa, finding it very comfortable, spacious and well looked after by Veysel who was really helpful and did a great job maintaining the pool and gardens. The Ottoman on the roof was an inspiration! K. Salisbury.
Just to say we had a wonderful holiday and your villa is lovely. Your caretakers look after the house and your guests very well and we appreciated the fresh bread every day. The airport transfers were on time and very comfortable so absolutely no complaints - only compliments! We shall definitely return and will recommend your villa to friends and family. C. Shore.

Why this location?
We first visited kalkan in 2004 and fell in love with it. Having visited many places we knew that this was the perfect place for our holiday home. We viewed many properties but nothing ticked all the boxes until we saw Villa Sovalye! The location is perfect, peaceful but close to the village and all amenities and only 5 mins from shops, bars and restaurants. It is a front line villa on a small complex so has uninterrupted views of the sea and mountains from all levels. The beautiful gardens and private pool as well as the stunning roof terrace were just some of the many reasons we knew we had found our perfect place in paradise!
What are the unique benefits of the property?
Location, close to the village and all amenities but with no steep hills. No need for a car. Private pool, beautiful gardens, sea and mountain views, a stunning roof terrace with BBQ and traditional Turkish Ottoman for chilling out! Spacious interior tastefully furnished with hand made furniture and local arts and crafts. Kalkan is a beautiful resort with traditional Ottoman white washed houses, cobbled streets winding down to the beautiful beach and harbour all surrounded by the Taurus Mountains and the clear blue Mediterranean sea. The warm welcome from the friendly locals, amazing cuisine served in the 100+ rooftop restaurants and it's wonderful ambiance will enchant you. We guarantee that once you have been bitten by the Kalkan bug you will return again and again!
