About the property

Villa in Kisla, just above Villa Mahal hotel - short walk Supermarket. Near Sea And Beach Club

This beautiful, detached, spacious villa was built in 2005 to very high standard in local stone. It is approx 200/300m from the sea (please see our photos taken fom the sea) in the quiet and most desirable top/west area of Kisla. Just below us is the prestigious and often written about Villa Mahal boutique hotel. There are fabulous views across Kalkan bay from the windows, pool area and balconies. Villa Lydia is built on 3 levels with its own ground floor guest suite. There is marble flooring throughout, and full air-conditioning. The property is enclosed by stone walls and many flowering shrubs. The garden is lush with trees and bougainvillea with discreet lighting. Please note this villa is not far from the sea (NOT a zoomed in sea view, miles up the mountain,please see our photos taken from the sea)

The really unique aspect is that our pool is very private, not over looked by our neighbours at all - we also offer 'privacy screens' that can be used to maximise your concealment if needed. 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 huge water storage tank another must, as water cuts can happen, it also has a large safe for valuables and yale alarm system fitted. Internet/wifi access of course!

About Joanna

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.

Joanna purchased this villa in 2005

Why Joanna chose Kalkan

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.

What makes this villa unique

A very private pool area

Guestbook comments from the owner

Now we are home and back to reality I just wanted to say what a beautiful villa you have. We had a fantastic time and would definitely stay again. The location was second to none. We walked into Kalkan lots which we've not been able to do before and close to so many beach clubs!!

Thanks for all your help in the run up to it as well.

Brilliant and beautiful Villa Lydia with fantastic views on Kalyan sea.

  • 5 of 5

We went holiday 5 of us my three daughters for 2 weeks. We did the search on Ownersdirect and contacted the owner Jo who was of great help, explained everything and sent all details about the villa, payment was smooth and transfer arranged timely and arrived villa at night time keys ready and villa in perfect order.

Next morning my daughters were in WAO! When saw the pool and surrounding, fantastic views and we loved it so much. We did go out and did few activities but my girls preferred to stay most time in villa enjoying the pool and the sun.

Taxis easy few minutes drive and local shop handy. The agent came daily to clean pool and area.

Air conditioner excellent and wifi and barbecue place we enjoyed booking most days.

In summary one of best holidays we had and best accommodation and villa, we won't hesitate to go again and stay same Villa. Thanks to Jo for making this perfect holiday.

Everything you want from a holiday villa

  • 5 of 5

The villa was just about perfect for my family (2 adults, 3 kids (age 11, 12, 14)). It was bigger than expected and we did not even use the whole basement which is big enough for 2/3 on its own! The owner, Jo, was very helpful throughout the booking and stay period assisting us in all matters. The whole stay was very smooth including the car hire that was arranged via Jo too.

Kalkan is a beautiful place and the views from the villa especially when waking in the morning are exceptional. The villa itself is well equipped and we did not spend too much time away from it (the mini-mart 5 minutes walk away keeping us away from the main town!). The nearest beaches were only 10 minutes walk away via the steep staircases, once you've found them.

Two areas that were especially good, and ones that I have struggled with at other villas in Turkey, were that water pressure to the showers was good and secondly, (the icing on the cake for my kids) was the unlimited WIFI (that actually worked) in the villa. It was a godsend for the kids when the heat and pool got too much and they just wanted to chill out indoors.

All-in-all a great place and one I would recommend to all.

Excellent location and very helpful owner

  • 5 of 5

Kalkan is a beautiful place to visit, an abundance of restaurants and bars , villa is located in a lovely and quiet place, surrounded by lovely villas

This villa is very clean and spacious and has all the essential requirements for a family of 7 , more could have stayed , the basement accommodation was an added bonus for my daughter and her twins giving her a private area

The pool is fabulous and well maintained

200 steps took us down to the nearest beach club which was lovely although not suitable for 4yr olds but great for children 10 and over ,however we found another beach club about 20 min walk away which was excellent for young children with very hospitable staff

The river taxi was great only cost 5L to get to Kalkan and went every 20-30 min

The best supermarket we found which was in fact the nearest to the villa was Carrefore Express bit like shopping in a Tesco Local but slightly larger

We hired a car during our stay as arranged locally by Jo , having hired cars for years at all the villas we have stayed in this one was definitely the easiest ! We had a transfer from the airport ... very comfortable an the same company then bought the hire car to the villa ,so refreshing not to have to pay a huge security deposit

Thank you Jo for an easy and lovely holiday

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!!
