Beautiful, relaxing apartment with private pool just a stroll from the Old Town
Apartment Fabio is a beautiful duplex, very spacious 3 bed, 3 bath apartment with fantastic facilities, just a short stroll from the Old Town and the harbour.
Fabio has a fully equipped kitchen with dishwasher. It also offers wifi, TVs, DVD, bluetooth speakers and a washing machine. It has two lovely separate outside areas; a very spacious pool side terrace with private pool and comfortable loungers and seating and sea views and also a lovely courtyard area on the lower level which provides plenty of shade.
The lounge/kitchen area and all bedrooms have air conditioning.
The 2 double bedrooms have en-suites and the twin bedroom has the use of the main bathroom so in effect all bedrooms have their own bathroom. All bathrooms have been beautifully designed with travertine tiles and high quality fittings.
Fabio is an upside down duplex so all bedrooms are located on the lower level and all have patio doors which lead out onto the peaceful and shaded courtyard garden, with an ottoman style seating area and fridge, for those important chilled beers/bottles of wine!
The apartment has a spacious fully furnished poolside terrace with its OWN relaxing pool (8 x 4 mtrs with a constant depth of 1.25 mtrs).
The poolside terrace offers an attractive shaded pergola with comfortable rattan seating and a dining table for poolside dining.
Sun beds, parasols and bean bags are also provided for your comfort and convenience.
Our professional management team will ensure the apartment is ready for your arrival and the team will be on hand throughout your stay should you need assistance. A welcome pack will be provided on your arrival and a full clean, linen and towel change will be carried out mid-stay.
Towels (both bath and pool) are provided free of charge and there are 3 hair dryers in the apartment available for your convenience.
**If you have a baby/toddler there is stair gate and a (travel) cot in the apartment, however, if you require a highchair these are available on request, at a small charge**
Large party? but want the privacy of your own space? then why not think about booking the apartment next door in conjunction with Fabio? Sodor is a 2 bed apartment which sleeps up to 6 people.
I am more than happy to book an airport transfer on your behalf.

About the Owner
About Sarah Howe
We absolutely love spending time at Fabio and spend all our time - when we are at home - counting down the days until our next trip!
As a busy family of four, we have always enjoyed our holidays and time away together. We lead busy lives and enjoy the opportunity to get away to relax, de-stress and spend quality time together as often as we can.
We have always enjoyed good quality accommodation in fantastic resorts and we feel that Fabio provides this and more.
We look forward to eating out together as a family, which is something we don't often get the chance to do at home. Kalkan offers us the chance to do this with its huge choice of fantastic restaurants.
We are proud to recommend our holiday home to families, friends and couples alike and are confident that you will not be disappointed.
Sarah Howe purchased this apartment in 2015
Why Sarah Howe chose Lycian & Turquoise Coast
Having visited Kalkan for the first time in 2014, we instantly fell in love with the beautiful resort and decided to come back again in 2015 for another holiday. Trying to pass time on our last day of holiday, we decided to view some properties - merely out of interest - and we made a spur of the moment decision and decided to buy Fabio! We just couldn't resist and we are so pleased we did! Fabio has everything we could ever want in a holiday home, from the space, the pool, the luxury, the views and the central location.
What makes this apartment unique
Fabio is a very spacious property in a peaceful yet central location, with lovely views of the sea and the mountains. It provides beautiful, spacious, villa-like accommodation. It is set in a very small block of only 5 apartments and has its OWN pool.
There are supermarkets and cafes almost on the doorstep and depending on how fast you walk, the Old Town is a little over 5 minutes FLAT (!) walk along The Kalamar Road.

This was our second stay at Fabio. We had had a wonderful stay here last year and were eagerly anticipating our October break this year. We were not disappointed! The property was spotlessly clean, well maintained, modern and comfortable - just like last time. The pool was crystal clear and all outdoor spaces were swept and tidied by the maintenance company daily. Fabio is in a super location - just a short stroll to the town with its cobbled streets, lively restaurants with excellent food, interesting shops and the harbour and beach clubs too. The setting of the property itself is great with good views of the magnificent mountains behind and glimpes of the glittering blue sea below. Kalkan is, in our opinion, a real gem of a holiday destination. Everyone is so friendly and welcoming when you are out and about - customer service is really good while being relaxed and warm. The exchange rate wasn't as high for us this year (UK residents!) but eating out was still great value. The standard of food in the restaurants is consistently really high with great menu choice and presentation. My husband insists he has the best steak ever here and we overheard some other restaurant guests saying the same! It's usual to be offered a small complimentary starter or dessert or aperitif eg delicious mezze or homemade 'balloon bread' which is a lovely bonus to an evening out! We were really sad to leave again this year and will definitely be going back. There is understandably some concern about travelling to Turkey at the moment but we would like to stress that we felt really safe at all times in Kalkan. There were also 3 separate lots of security checks at Dalaman airport which was very reassuring. To conclude, we would highly recommend this property for its value for money, comfort and location.
Having just returned from a 7 day stay at 'Fabio', our one and only regret is that we didn't book for longer.
The apartment was faultless, and delivered everything, if not more than advertised. Spotlessly clean, and offering high quality furnishings, fixtures and fittings.
If you're looking for accommodation which lends itself to outside living then Fabio is the perfect property for such a holiday.
There is ample room for 6 people around the pool, with an abundance of choice for outside seating.
The swimming pool was a very good size and kept very clean throughout our holiday.
The downstairs, which houses the bedrooms, all air conditioned, are very light and spacious with high quality en-suite shower rooms.
All bedrooms have patio doors leading onto another seating area.
Whilst we ventured into town a few times (10 minute walk), we found a little gem of a restaurant on our doorstep... ''Bread & More'' was just 200 metres away, and offered an extensive and reasonably priced menu.
You will be served by Deniz, who is an amazing character and well worth chatting to.
Should we return to Kalkan, we will without hesitation happily choose to stay at 'Fabio'.

A beautiful apartment in a stunning location.
There were 4 of us on our visit to Kalkan and all of us said exactly the same by the end of our holiday. The apartment was more beautiful than we could have ever expected; clean, modern, spacious and having it's own pool just made it perfect. The owners are extremely friendly and have clearly gone out of their way to ensure everyone is thought of and having a great time whilst on holiday and that the apartment is well looked after and maintained. The welcome folder is full of useful information from restaurants to daily excursions and this saved us so much time having to search for things to do on the FREE WIFI while we were there! We went on a boat trip (easy to find in the marina and HIGHLY RECOMMENDED especially as it only costs about £20) which lasted 6 hours and took us around lots of the smaller islands and lunch was included!
The location of the apartment is beautiful and with a 5-10 minute walk into the main town it's far enough away to not hear the friendly hustle and bustle of a nightime but close enough to walk there in no time and be part of the safest and friendliest town I've ever been to. The locals want to give you the best experience and with hidden gems such as Botanik Garden Bar (google it as it's worth finding) you'll really get that from staying here in Kalkan.
Great outside space and pool area
Sarah was very organised and helpful and made sure I had all the information before arrival. The Villa was very clean and accurately described.
The outdoor space was superb, the biggest one of the complex and with great space for relaxing, eating and chilling by the pool.
An enjoyable stay in a nice Villa with a good location with easy reach to all the local shops etc.
Wonderful accommodation in great position
Have just spent a week at Fabio with my husband, son, daughter in law and 11 month old granddaughter. The accommodation was brilliant, lovely and open plan with lots of natural light so I could prepar breakfast etc and still watch my granddaughter playing in the lounge. The outside area was also great with super comfy cushions where we'd relax in the evening with the obligatory bottle of wine, there were also plenty of sun loungers and parasols, the apartment was in a really convenient position only 5 minutes to the nearest supermarket and 10 - 15 minute stroll into the old town. The cleaning staff were very helpful and even though we were only there for a week we still had a clean through and linen change after 3 days. This was our 7th visit to Kalkan and our 6th self catering accommodation and for me it's the best accommodation we've had and certainly it's been in the best position. When booking accommodation in Kalkan you have to be careful as some of it can be quite some distance from the shops and restaurants but with Fabio that is NOT the case !!
The owner Sarah was great to deal with, always very quick to answer emails and so helpful with regards supplying at a very small charge a travel cot and high chair, she was also really patient answering my many questions and very kindly organised our airport transfer which went very smoothly.
If we decided on another holiday to Kalkan we'd definitely return to Fabio.
Thanks Sarah for making our holiday run so smoothly it was much appreciated.
PS There was also a safety gate which made things a lot more relaxing as we could let my granddaughter crawl about as much as she wanted without the worry of her falling down the stairs, another bonus if your traveling with small children.
Excellently situated and well appointed Kalkan apartment
This duplex apartment with its own pool is very centrally situated for Kalkan's old town and harbour (8 minutes walking distance ). Shops and restaurants nearby also. The large ground floor living area opens out onto a lovely spacious pool terrace with assorted comfortable seating and sunbeds. The pool is a perfect size to enjoy with a pretty outlook over Kalkan to the sea. Downstairs are 3 bedrooms (2 en-suites) which also open onto a smaller terrace and garden area, and a third bathroom The rooms are well appointed, light and airy.
This area, although central, is a quiet part of Kalkan.
We were two couples and a one year old and loved this apartment. The facilities were excellent and the owners kindly provided a travel cot, high chair and stair gate, which was greatly appreciated.
We will certainly book again - we enjoyed a lovely holiday in such a perfect apartment! Thank you.

Activity and Interests
Kalkan is a beautiful place; the coastline is stunning and the people are welcoming and friendly. It is a real foodies destination with around 200 high quality restaurants, many offering roof top dining with amazing views over the harbour. The Old Town has a magical feel as you wander the cobbled streets. Kalkan is situated on the Turkish Mediterranean coast and forms part of the ancient 'Lycian Way'. As such there are many historical sites dating back to Persian, Roman and Ottoman rule. These include Xanthos, Letoon, Tlos and Kekova - also known as the Sunken City, some of which have been granted UNESCO World Heritage Status. Kalkan provides the perfect base from which to explore the rich culture and colourful history of this ancient land.
Day trips are highly recommended and can easily be arranged locally.
There is a lovely small pebble beach in Kalkan with the most beautiful turquoise sea. A number of beach clubs are dotted around the beautiful bay and visits to these are highly recommended. A boat trip is a 'must' to admire the stunning coastline, beautiful coves and swim in the beautiful sea. If you are lucky enough you may see a turtle or two. Boats leave at 10am every day, are very reasonable and include snacks and lunch.
Most UK airlines fly to Dalaman which is 3h45m/4h flight. The transfer is around 90 minutes and airport transfers can be booked on your behalf if required. You will be met on arrival by your private transfer driver who will deliver you direct to Apartment Fabio.
Fabio is perfectly located, just a gentle few minutes stroll along the Kalamar Road, with its many bars, cafes and restaurants. The Kalamar Road will lead you to the Old Town where you will find around 100 mouthwatering array of restaurants, many roof top with stunning views over the beautiful harbour.
Kalkan is an upmarket resort on Turkey's stunning Mediterranean coast. The picturesque town is set around a stunning horse-shoe bay with a small pebble beach and a selection of beach clubs with a beautiful harbour. Kalkan definitely comes alive at night. With the restaurants set on a hill, when all lit up, the setting is stunning. The atmospheric Old Town with its cobbled streets also provides many bars, cafes and designer shops. For the ladies who love handbags then Kalkan is definitely for you!
Apartment Fabio offers its guests the space and facilities of a modern villa and provides a peaceful haven to get way from it all. Although Fabio is within easy walking distance to the town and beach/harbour, there are plenty of taxi's if you don't fancy the walk.
Fabio is centrally located, yet in a peaceful location. All amenities including banks, supermarkets, chemists, shops, cafes, bars and restaurants are all within a few minutes walk. The Thursday market is also only a few minutes walk away.
All towels, including pool towels are provided for your convenience.
