Duplex Penthouse Apartment in Kalkan Old Town, Turkey
About the area
Kalkan itself has an attractive pebble beach that is only a 2 minute stroll away. The picturesque turquoise waters of ‘Kaputas Beach’ is about 10 mins drive away (taxis are plentiful and there is a regular dolmus service) - real Robinson Crusoe land! Patara Beach, often renowned as one of the world's best beaches is about only a 15 min drive. Kalkan's bustling harbour also provides gulet trips for relaxing days out. There are also many beach clubs nearby, which offer free taxi services.
Special Interest Holidays
Kalkan is ideal for all types of water activities from water skiing to scuba diving. Kalkan Bay also has a Blue Flag Award for cleanliness. Walkers and hikers are well catered for with the ancient Lycian Way on the doorstep. This passes directly through the town making it ideal for anyone wanting to walk part of the extensive, picturesque route. Early morning horse riding lessons are available on Patara Beach and during the summer months Yoga classes are available on the sea front at the renowned Villa Mahal, only a short water taxi away. Kalkan also provides many opportunities for sketching, painting or photography as its flora and fauna never fails to inspire.
A local restaurant called Gurus has been recently featured in a national UK newspaper and is popular for its Turkish cookery classes which are a great way to meet new people in an informal setting and enjoy and introduction to delicious Turkish cuisine.
How to get there
Kalkan is reached via Dalaman airport, from which we can help you to arrange a transfer. Dalaman is only 90 mins away and is serviced by most airlines from the UK (First Choice, Thomas Cook, Thomson, Easyjet and Jet 2 etc etc), operating from most regional airports. We will be happy to assist with locating flights and booking transfers.
Kalkan is at the very heart of ancient Lycia and as such many historical sites are close by, including Xanthos, Letoon, Pinara, Tlos and Patara. Kekova, Demre, Myra, Phaselis, Olympos and Aspendos are also within reach, as are the attractive harbour towns of Fethiye and Kas. The historical ghost village of Kaya (Greek ghost town, subject of Louis de Berniere's 'Birds without Wings') is also worth a visit.
Kalkan is a small harbour village with winding cobbled streets and alleyways, which has expanded gradually over recent years. The ancient old town retains its original character, surrounded by the awesome Taurus mountains. At its centre lies the harbour with a mix of local fishing craft, traditional gulets and visiting yachts. There is a wealth of superb restaurants, the best to be had in coastal Turkey and for which Kalkan is most famous. Here you will find menus to suit all pockets and tastes. These are mainly situated along the harbour front or on roof terraces offering excellent views over the sea, superb fresh fish and seafood. A wonderful evening can be enjoyed in a relaxing ambience soaking up the atmosphere of the village at night. Many of these restaurants feature annually in reports provided by national newspapers in the UK. Although sophisticated and chic, these have still retained their Turkish charm. Shops are very good quality with a range of merchandise available from arts and crafts to ‘designer’ handbags. There is a range of boutique style bag shops that hold many bargains compared to UK prices. There is also an excellent weekly Thursday market providing many opportunities for bargain hunting from t-shirts and jeans to spices and local farmer’s food produce. There are a number of banks with ATM machines and a Post Office both in the village.

Just to say we had a wonderful holiday once again in Kalkan. The apartment was fabulous and in a prime location with everything you need within a couple of minutes walk. We will certianly miss having the wonderful view when we are eating breakfast or having a drink on an evening! We would be booking again for next year but unfortunately one of the weeks we need has already gone. Thanks once again Jo, chris and family

The Sahane Apartment is superb. It is beautifully decorated and appointed, scrupulously clean, with Management Staff always on hand to help in any way they can. The views over Kalkan bay cannot be beaten, and it is a few minutes walk from all the attractions of Kalkan Old Town, while being in a quiet location. The restaurants of Kalkan offer so much choice, and in the twenty visits we have made to the Town have not had a bad meal yet, we keep to our favourites but try to visit at least three new ones each time. The Owners cannot do enough to make your holiday here special, and the apartment wants for nothing, it is a true home from home rather than another holiday rental.

"The Jewel in the Crown!"
We stayed at the Sahane apartment for 9 nights in July, but have been staying here annually for around the last 6 years. In our opinion this has got to be one of the best locations to be in Kalkan. It is quiet and peaceful, yet only 2 minutes walk to the nearest supermarket and restaurant, with the majority of shops and restaurants in town only 5 minutes walk away. One of the real bonuses of this location is that you really don't need a car whilst you are staying there unless you want to travel extensively. Everything is walking distance, including the taxi-rank which is close by. The owners Sue and Sean are committed to providing a fabulous holiday experience for guests. The apartment is beautifully appointed and looked after really well by Samet and his team, who are always on hand to assist with any queries. The majority of our stay at the Sahane usually finds us sun-bathing on the wrap around roof terrace outside the main bedroom, which gets sun from breakfast through until the last rays of the evening. The views from there of Kalkan bay and the harbour are just stunning and you get the same view from the floor below. I don't think there are many properties in the Old Town that could match this. We tend to use the balcony on the lower floor for our lunch and the roof terrace for breakfast and evening drinks/meals. We also make good use of the built in BBQ on the roof terrace. Although there are many very high standard restaurants in Kalkan, should you want to dine in, the apartment is really well equipped. The apartment also has a cold water machine which is a fabulous facility to help you keep hydrated. It also avoids the need to carry large bottles of water from the supermarket, as Samet will arrange to change the bottle on request, which costs only around ?2 for 19 litres of water. The pool is shared with the two apartments below. There are ample sun-loungers for all 3 apartments, but we tend to sunbathe upstairs and just go down when we want to have a dip or swim to cool off. You can be in the sun or the shade on the sun-loungers by the pool. The pool itself is large enough to have a decent swim in and it is partially shaded by the building in front, which is great if you want to be both in the water and keep out of the sun. The Sahane apartment really is the Jewel in the Crown of Kalkan and if you are reading this and have never been to Kalkan before, then you don't know what you are missing!

"The apartment was wonderful. We definitely prefer being close to the town. Samet was wonderful and only too happy to help us when we asked. Even if I try hard to give some constructive comments, I am at a loss. There was more than expected supplied:
·The abundance of power adapters made life so easy
·The availability of beach towels was so useful
·Hairdryers in each room was fantastic and a decent iron great"
Mr W Shropshire
"We had a wonderful holiday in your apartment. We holiday 3 times a year in apts and yours ranks among the best. Samet was charming, helpful and efficient. The apt was immaculate and the position was amazing. Thanks once again."
“Your apartment is perfect. We made good use of the pool as the weather was wonderfully hot. Everything we needed was in the apt and we loved the water cooler. Great location, near to shops & restaurants, yet very quiet at night. Spent the evenings on the roof terrace admiring the view over Kalkan bay."
