About the property

Beautiful, spacious apartment with private pool just a stroll from the Old Town

Apartment Fabio is a beautiful duplex, very spacious 3 bedroom, 3 bathroom 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, with partial sea views. Additionally, there is 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 which tends to keep them cooler, and all have patio doors which lead out onto the peaceful and shaded courtyard garden, with an ottoman style seating area and handy fridge.

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, a (travel) cot and a high chair in the apartment**

Large party? but want the privacy of your own space? then why not think about booking another apartment in the same block in conjunction with Fabio?

I am more than happy to book an airport transfer on your behalf.

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 Kalkan

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 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.

Fab’io - Five Star Property

  • 5 of 5

Our Fabio / Kalkan experience was very memorable. We travelled late Sep ‘17 - our booking was easy with communication via owners Sarah & Rob - they are very knowledgeable about Kalkan & very helpful with suggestions for everything from excellent restaurants, shopping, Turkish baths, market info, boat trips to airport taxis (luxury taxi provided for both journeys). The apartment is appropriately named - it was Fab’io - Pool is amazing - cleaned every day & perfect size & temp. - sun loungers & furniture are comfortable & excellent quality & lighting create a perfect setting & night ambience with candles & dim lighting was very romantic.

Apartment is in a great location & close to all the restaurants & shops & we walked into town there & back every night.

We couldn’t be more positive about our Fabio stay and we are 100% returning. There were 2 x adult couples in our party with plenty of room for more!

A little piece of heaven

  • 5 of 5

What a lovely town Kalkan is! So friendly and vibrant! lovely people and restaurants everywhere. Boat trips are a fabulous day out - especially Sunset, which we went on - the food was amazing.

The apartment, Fabio, was absolutely stunning! So clean and modern with all mod cons and every facility you would need. The private pool was lovely and the outside area roomy, clean and tidy. I would not hesitate in recommending this apartment to anyone staying in Kalkan.

Fantastic apartment

  • 5 of 5

The description for Fabio is described as luxury and that is genuinely what you get. The three bedrooms and bathrooms were perfect for our family. We had so much space, more than some villas and everything was well maintained and very clean. The pool area was fantastic and a great size for two teenage boys to be splashing around in while we enjoyed watching them with a drink on the rattan sofa area or catching some (very hot) sun on one of the six loungers. Kitchen was well equipped and air conditioning in all the rooms was really effective. The location is great, genuine walking distance into town with the nearest restaurant a couple of minutes walk away. Sarah was helpful and always really quick to come back to me when I had any questions. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend Fabio and will be back here just as soon as I can!

Amazing location, spacious and light and airy! Loved the pool!

  • 5 of 5

Amazing stay at Fabio- been in a few hill top villas as a group however as there was nly four of us we wanted to be closer but still have our own pool!

And what a gorgeous place Fabio is. Sarah is an excellent host from initial booking through to return of deposit. It was all a great experience, excellent service.

The villa is so spacious, parking right outside, 10 min walk (slow in 40degree heat) to the very front of the harbour, and also only £1-2 in a cab! There is so much space in the villa, the downstairs was huge! I love the upside down living. The kitchen was very well equipped and spacious- but we spent most of our time outside. Lunch by the patio, sunbathe all day, dip in the gorgeous pool and then drinks under the canopy before our night in the town!

Excellent all round! Cant wait to go back!

Fabio is FAB-U-LOUS

  • 5 of 5

So glad we booked Fabio for our stay in beautiful Kalkan. Sarah the owner arranged our transfers from Dalaman airport and the friendly driver was waiting for us when we arrived. When we got to Fabio we were absolutely delighted. First impressions were superb. The apartment was spacious and clean. There were 7 of us, 4 adults and 3 children. One of the kids was under 2 and Sarah arranged a highchair and travel cot for him which was ideal. The master bedroom was very big with plenty of room for the travel cot. The other 2 bedroom were spacious, clean and all had access to the lovely seating area downstairs. There was also a safety gate at the top of the stairs which meant the wee one could toddle about with no fear of an accident which was great. The kitchen had everything you would need for a home from home and the kids loved sitting in the living room when they got too hot to watch a DVD. The 3 bathrooms were also very clean and beautiful. The pool and outdoor areas were stunning. We used the pool a lot and I don't think we would stay somewhere that didn't have one as we needed it for cooling off. There were plenty seating areas including a table to eat outdoors, a comfy seating area under a canopy and sun loungers with large umbrellas. One tip for the outdoor area is to put a bathmat directly at the entrance/ exit to the pool as the marble floor can be slippy when getting out the pool. We also put one right inside the patio doors to the living area to save us getting the floor wet in the apartment. It was brilliant to have a washing machine in the apartment with the kids being there and the clothes driers meant the clothes dried in no time in the sun. The apartment is just a short walk into town but there is also a small supermarket 5 mins from the apartment to pick up supplies. As Kalkan is very hilly we always got a taxi back from town and these were very cheap. The restaurants, bars and shops in Kalkan are great and there is something to suit all budgets. We also had 2 Turkish baths at Atlantis Spa which is a 5 min stroll from the apartment. We also took a boat trip on Maya for the second time. Just go to the harbour in the evening to book and we also had a great day at the Kalkan beach club. My husband and grandson even got matching shirts handmade from Tufaniar Tailors. They have 2 shops in Kalkan and we sat and had tea and a chat with them. All in all our holiday was fantastic and I would highly recommend a stay at Fabio Apartments.

Fabulous Fabio

  • 5 of 5

This is the 6th year that I have holidayed in Kalkan, staying at 3 different villas, and thought that this year it was time to try something different! I was not disappointed: liaising with Sarah from start to finish was a pleasure! She treated me more like a friend that a client, and nothing was too much trouble for her! Fabio is a fantastic apartment, and the outside space absolutely glorious. We spent most of our days In the fantastic pool or just lounging about in the sun! And after a meal and a drink in the old town in the evenings, it was lovely to come back and sit in the 'Arabian Nights' seating and chat! Can't wait to go back next year! My nieces joined us for the second week, and their only regret was that they had not come for the full two weeks. Fabio is conveniently placed to get to the town, market, park etc.

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.

The Apartment:-

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.
