Villa In Kisla,Kalkan, very private pool. Stunning Sea Views, above Villa Mahal



Updated: 06-Sep-2016
Villa in Kisla, Kalkan, best location, best quality - Short Walk Supermarket. Near Sea And Beach Clubs

This beautiful, detached, spacious, luxury villa was built to very high standard, in local stone, approx 200/300m from the sea, in the quiet and most desirable top area of Kisla Bay. There are fabulous views across Kalkan bay. It is built on 3 levels with its own ground floor guest suite. Marble flooring throughout, and fully air-conditioned, own gated drive. Stone walled beautiful landscaped gardens, full of flowers and trees and bougainvillea with discreet lighting. Please note this villa is situated just above the Villa Mahal boutique hotel in the most sought after area of Kisla, (NOT a zoomed in sea view, miles up the mountain, like most advertised). The villa is also fitted with a 45KV voltage regulator which is a must in Turkey as the 3 phase power supply some times be very erratic, and also a hugh water storage tank another must, as water cuts can happen, it also has a large safe for valuables and yale alarm system fitted. Internet access if you have a laptop.

About the Owner

This is a brief summary of Gary and Jo Jess! We thought you might like to know a bit about us. We are a 'young middle aged' couple, married for 30 yrs. Jo works as a specific learning difficulties teacher in a boy's prep school. Gary, has a 4x4 business. We have 2 all grown up children (who also adore Villa Lydia).

We live on a farm in a small village in Hertfordshire. We are used to a fairly tranquil environment hence our choice of villa location in Kalkan. As for our interests and tastes; we like nature, plants and the natural environment. With this in mind we have furnished Villa Lydia with lots of wood and neutral colour schemes. We hope you will approve.

It was a great holiday!

  • 5 of 5

We visited the villa as a family of six and we had a really great time. The villa is beautiful and when we first walked in we were struck by how much more pretty it seemed to the pictures we saw online! The villa was immaculate and immediately felt like a home away from home. We arrived in the early hours of Sunday morning so that we could enjoy a full day and when we woke up we were able to enjoy a hearty breakfast because fresh bread, milk and eggs had been arranged for us already, which was a really lovely gesture. We did a variety of activities in the week including canoeing, quad biking and tubing. We spent a lot of time in the pool as well; the youngest, 8, built up his confidence and in the last few days managed to swim independently!

I would certainly recommend the villa; it is situated in a wonderful location and if you are looking for a particularly private and secluded pool then this villa is perfect for that!

It is close enough to the town so that you can visit restaurants etc but it is really peaceful too so that you can relax at the villa.

Jo has been a great help from beginning to end so you are in safe hands!

Amazing time!!

  • 5 of 5

We have just had an absolutely amazing holiday in Kalkan and an incredible stay at Villa Lydia. This was our first time to Turkey and I am so glad that we chose to stay at Jo and Gary's place. We spent seven blissful days hanging out by the pool and eating amazing food in nearby Kalkan. This villa is so well located - just far enough out of town that you don't feel like a tourist, yet close enough to enjoy the quaintness and incredible restaurants that Kalkan has to offer. There were three adults and two boys (9 and 13) in our group and the villa was plenty big (and cool) enough for everyone to have their own space :) We made good use of the free water taxi from the Mahal Beach Club, situated not too far below the property. Look out for the almost hidden sets of stairs that will lead you to the beach club and adjoining open-air cafe overlooking the crystal blue water. What I loved most about this place was the privacy and beautiful greenery that surrounds the villa. Jo and Gary were excellent to deal with throughout the whole process and their onsite folks were extremely helpful. Best holiday ever!!

Beautiful villa with breath taking views! Lovely private pool that is not over looked. Had the most amazing first holiday with our 1 year old daughter. Gary and Jo supplied stair gate, travel cot and potty with no trouble at all, thank you so much. Kalkan is a hidden gem and Villa Lydia is a must see!!

Lovely Holiday

  • 5 of 5

We had a really lovely stay at Villa Lydia, the view was fantastic and the good sized pool was in constant use. Found the walk into Kalkan far too tiring (only did it once and nearly didnt make it up the hill at all) but at £5 for a taxi into town we found no problem at all in using them for all 6 of us for the rest of the holiday. We did the best boat trip with Yildiz, canoe trip ( fun but hard work at the end) and a private tour of Xanthos, Letoon and Patara ruins (organised by the lovely Anil at Volume Travel). Suleyman who looks after the villa was there whenever we needed him and had my sons lost luggage reunited with us in no time. If you are eating out try Mussaka, The Olive Garden and Alternatif. Thankyou Gary and Jo - we would not hesitate in recommending your villa and hope to return.

Beautiful Sunsets

  • 5 of 5

This was the perfect villa to watch the sun go down with a glass of wine. The boys loved playing in the pool and there were lots of restaurants to choose form in Kalkan for lunch or dinner.

Very peaceful location. we visited Saklikent Gorge, Tlos Trout Farm and even hired a yacht for a couple of days sailing.

Thank you Jo for the use of your lovely villa.

From the Owner

Kisla, is an area of Kalkan just to it's east. Though the main town is very accessible, Kisla is just a little bit quieter than 'down town'. Kisla comprises mostly of private villas. There are no noisy, late night bars/clubs on the doorstep. There is a very well stocked mini-supermarket just a 2 min walk away (will change currency at a very good rate too). The resort Patara Prince is also in Kisla with it's spas, restaurants and sports facilites available to use (booking is required in high season). The gem on Kisla is the Villa Mahal boutique hotel. This is just a few minutes (steep) walk away and a wonderful place to spend a day, or evening for dinner, right upon the Med. All that said, you really don't need to venture from our poolside or windows to enjoy the most spectacular views.
