About the property

Apartment in Kalkan, Mediterranean Region, Turkey - Luxury Penthouse Apartment

This Penthouse apartment has spectacular panoramic views over Kalkan, but is still only an 8 minute walk to the centre of Kalkan, therefore no car is necessary. The large balcony and roof terrace are furnished with tables and chairs for eating al fresco or enjoying the spectacular views. The private roof terrace is also equipped with sun beds and parasol. The fully air-conditioned property is furnished to an exceptionally high standard and includes all you would expect from a luxury holiday home. There is an infinity pool, separate children's pool and a large sun bathing area which is shared by only 3 other apartments. The harbour is only a 10 minute walk from the apartment. From there you can take the water taxis to the lovely beach clubs dotted around Kalkan bay.

About Val Watson

My name is Val and I live in Scotland. I am a recently retired Civil Servant.

I have been holidaying in Kalkan with my husband Richard for several years. We both love Kalkan and this year we finally decided to buy an apartment.

The view from our apartment is stunning - over Kalkan Town, to its harbour and out to the beautiful turquoise sea.

Val Watson purchased this apartment in 2015

Why Val Watson chose Kalkan

We looked at several apartments in Kalkan and instantly fell in love with this one. This apartment is only 5 years old, its modern, very well equipped, spacious and has fantastic views to die for. We just love it. It really is only a short walk to the centre of town. Kalkan is a friendly, picturesque and a relaxing place for a memorable holiday.

Lovely apartment and fabulous views!

  • 5 of 5

We had a 2 week stay at this apartment and its really lovely. The view from the roof top terrace is truly fabulous. Val the apartment owner was very helpful from the start of our booking right through to the end of our stay which we were very greatful for. Beautiful Kalkan is a must for us every year and has been for the last 8 years or so, this apartment is the best one we've stayed in so far. There is also a wealth of information in the apartment of places to go and to eat with an excellent choice of restaurants in the town. The apartment is very well equipped with everything you will need for your stay. We had a great holiday here and made new friends and lots of happy memories. Thanks again to Val for everything.

Thank you for sharing your gorgeous home in the sun.We just loved it, to waken up each morning having breakfast on the balcony with the great views over Kalkan Bay watching the day trip boats going out was lovely .The apartment has everything you need and well organised.

The BBQ was great to have as well.

Lying at the pool was amazing too with fantastic views.

So many delicious restaurants to try enjoyed, Samphire and Kalamaki.We would definitely recommend to friends and family and will be back to Taurus again.Thanks for all your help when booking x

Wow! Beautiful villa with a stunning view! Everything was thought of from the beach towels to a sewi

  • 5 of 5

Our first time to Kalkan,we arrived late so when we awoke and saw the villa and those spectacular views we were all very happy! Ideal location 10 mins or less walk down to the shops restaurants and harbour. The pool was a welcome cool break and a perfect size for a swim again lovely views! The beds were very comfy and big! Plenty of wardrobe space a dishwasher and washing machine were great to have to.There is a BBQ on the wraparound terrace with comfy seating perfect for sitting watching the boats coming in to the harbour with a glass of wine or two! Upstairs there is another small terrace off of the two bedrooms again with great views! Overall we had a fantastic two week holiday and would definitely come back to the Taurus penthouse apartment!

Perfect holiday apartment with stunning view

  • 5 of 5

The apartment was all it promised to be and looks even better in real life. What a view! The owners' directions from the airport were spot on, especially since we arrived late at night. The apartment is well furnished, spotlessly clean with lots of personal touches and very comfortable. Everything we could have wanted was there and all 4 of us including 2 girls aged 19 and 21 had a fabulous time. The centre of Kalkan is a very short walk there and back (the uphill is good exercise!) and it's a beautiful town with lots of great restaurants and shops. There's plenty to visit nearby, especially if you like ancient ruins. Definitely a place to return to and would highly recommend it.

Perfect home for our Turkish adventure

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay at Taurus and felt that it made our holiday complete. Every detail has been thought of, along with the basics of full air con, washing machine and decent sized wardrobes!

Brilliantly stocked kitchen for delicious breakfast and lunches with a view and even a BBQ for sunset dinners.

We loved the infinity pool and spent a few 'rest days' lounging around there. The view is truly beautiful and we never got tired of enjoying it. Even did a bit of sunrise yoga on the roof - wow!

It's a fair walk uphill from the town but we took it slowly and soon got used to it - even our reluctant 4 year old made a game out of it. Its hilly wherever you are in Kalkan so we saw it as a good way to get some exercise to offset the delicious beer and food!

Thank you - we will return!

Wonderful apartment, amazing views

  • 5 of 5

Thank you for allowing us to stay at your wonderful apartment, it was everything we hoped for and more. Can't think of anything that wasn't provided with lots of extras, a real home from home but with much better weather! The BBQ was well used and we enjoyed dinner/drinks on the top terrace admiring the fantastic views. The pool area is well equipped with sunbeds and very welcome during the hot days.

We wouldn't hesitate to return and will recommend the apartment to friends and family.

Nearest Airport
123 Kilometres
Dalaman Airport
Nearest Beach
17 Kilometres
Patara Beach


Kalkan beach is a 10 minute walk, and is located close to a good selection of cafes and restaurants. Kalkan beach clubs are only a short free boat ride from the harbour and are well worth visiting. All offer sunbeds, parasols, cafe facilities and water sports.

Patara beach, an impressive stretch of sand is 20 minutes by car or bus, whilst the famous Kaputas beach (and steps) is only 10 minutes by car.


Dalaman Airport is the nearest, about an hour and a half away. Antalya is about 3 hours drive away. Transfers can be arranged on request. Car hire is not necessary, but would be helpful in ensuring you make the most of the local facilities. Car hire can be arranged on request. Also Taxis can be arranged to visit local attractions.


Kalkan is a 6 minute walk down, 10 minutes back or a local taxi. Patara 20 minutes by car or bus. Kas 30 minutes by car or bus. Fethiye, including the market, 60 minutes by car or bus. Olu Deniz is also close by and well worth a visit. Many historical sites are within easy reach and the Saklikent gorge is also well worth visiting.

Further Details:

Kalkan is a little hidden gem - an upmarket destination with great charm and untouched by mass tourism. It is rightly famous for its number and variety of restaurants which offer some of the best dining in Turkey. You can eat on one of the many rooftops or down by the harbour. You will be spoilt for choice.

You will no doubt get talking to people who have taken holidays in Kalkan for many years, and understand why people find this place so special.

Kalkan also has shops selling an array of quality goods and gifts. There are also several banks with cash machines, as well as supermarkets and a Thursday market, an experience in itself.
