About the Owner

I live in England and Kalkan and have 2 children and I run my own marketing consultancy for scientific, technical and medical books and journals. I holidayed in Kalkan and fell in love with it and then purchased the villa in 2006. I have made many friends in Kalkan and have really fallen in love with Turkey. I have visited Istanbul and Cappadoccia which was amazing but there is still so much of Turkey to explore.

I am also learning Turkish - not an easy language and I don't get much practise as so many people in Kalkan speak such good English!

Guestbook comments from the owner

"We have just returned from the most wonderful week in Villa Kirmizi Lale. The pool was immaculate and lovely to dip into for a cooling swim before breakfast or after a day out.Everything you could wish for was provided in the villa including free WIFI. Yusuf and Muhammet provided us with all the information for shopping, days out etc and with much laughter . We were so sad to leave such a beautiful place and can't wait to return.Thank you Felicity for the use of your lovely Villa.

Wonderful holiday in stunning Kalkan

  • 5 of 5

We've just returned from 2 weeks at Kirmizi Lale. The villa was really comfortable and has all the amenities you'd expect all to a very high standard. We loved the pool and seating area but also the roof terrace seating is an amazing place to relax and enjoy the views. There's loads to do and lots of great restaurants all very close the villa. Must recommend a boat trip which was a highlight. Swimming in crystal clear water and then feasting on a delicious lunch- truly magical! (We went with Maya Boats- but there are lots of companies offering very similar). Felicity and Yusuf couldn't do enough to help us out with recommendations and advice during our stay. Highly recommended!

wonderful stay at Villa Kirmizi Lale

  • 4 of 5

We have just returned from our 3 week holiday at Vilal Kirmizi Lale and had a fantastic stay there. Its our third visit to Kalkan and we will definitely stay the villa again. The villa is large and airy, with newly refurbished bathrooms which are sheer luxury, and a fantastic kitchen with all the modcons. Everything was clean and well appointed. The outside area was spacious with a gorgeous pool. There was a lovelly large outside table as well as a beautifully appointed outside seating area, with barbeque, as well as a garden area with lovely hammocks to while away the afternoons with a good book. the owner Felicity was fantastic, super helpful and friendly and went out of her way to make our stay a memorable one. Internet was very good and we were able to access UK TV without any problems. The villa really is very close to town, a short walk, so taxis definitely not needed. It was really perfect and I would highly recommend it to anyone looking at accommodation in Kalkan. We will definitely be back to stay at the villa. Thanks Felicity!

Great villa, great destination

  • 5 of 5

We were a party of 6 family members who stayed at this villa early June 2016.

The villa had everything you would wish for – all mod cons including dishwater, microwave and washing machine, and wifi. There is a nice seating area outside at ground level, along with sun loungers, umbrellas, BBQ and outside dining table. On the top level terrace, accessed through the top level bedroom, there is a fridge, sofa, bar stools and bar with beautiful views overlooking the bay. The villa is very comfortable throughout and feels very homely.

The owner is extremely helpful and accommodating, dealing with all our pre-holiday queries, providing advice and arranging transport for us from Dalaman Airport. The managing agent popped in regularly to clean the pool and check that everything was OK with our group. Any minor issues were dealt with immediately and we were all really impressed with the standard of care.

Following the owners suggestion we decided not to get a car but walked into town every day, which is 10 minutes down the hill. We used taxis to get back uphill to the villa most of the time, especially when we had groceries. Taxi are extremely cheap and plentiful - £2.50 from the town including generous tip. Taxis are always right where you need them – outside the supermarkets, down at the harbour and close to the restaurants.

We took the free boat from the harbour to Palm Beach Club most days – idyllic setting, terrific food, and very attentive service – and all for a very economical price.

A great destination, a great villa and we all had a great time.

Wonderful family holiday in beautiful villa

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I have been coming to Kalkan for the last 13 years.This year we decided to bring our family,2 sons and wives and our 5 granddaughters to celebrate a family occasion.For this we needed a nice villa conveniently situated for access to Kalkan centre.We couldn,t have made a better choice than Villa Kirmizi Lale.This beautiful well cared for villa is maintained to a high standard and is spotlessly clean.The kitchen is well appointed and lounge comfortable.The modern bathrooms are luxurious and bedrooms well furnished and fitted.We enjoyed the new pergola patio area with the ottoman seating with views over the town and also the refurbished balcony with rattan settees and bar stools overlooking Kalkan bay.The sunbeds had nice thick mattresses and enough parasols for shade.We enjoyed the lovely pool and gardens and the white trellis fencing afforded privacy.Should we return with family or friends we would not hesitate took book this villa again and will certainly pass on our recommendation.Thanks again Felicity and to Yusuf for his help.

Everything you could possibly want!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at Villa Kirmizi Lale for two weeks and had an absolutely fantastic time. The villa was spotlessly clean throughout and the private swimming pool and gardens were beautifully maintained. The villa's bathrooms had been recently renovated to a very high standard. Only a 10 minute walk from the town centre, the views across Kalkan bay were stunning, particularly from the top floor balcony. The kitchen had everything you could possibly need for a self-catering holiday. We all enjoyed the great selection of board games too - great fun to sit around the outside dining table and play in the shade!

We feel very lucky to have found this villa and wouldn't hesitate to recommend it, and indeed already have! The owner was so friendly and helpful, as were the brilliant onsite maintenance/cleaning team. We are already planning our next visit. Don't bother looking at any other villas as you won't get better than this one!

Well equipped, well run Well done

  • 5 of 5

As advertised! A clean and spacious villa with excellent local management.

A lovely private garden and pool area which sees the sun all day.

The villa is very well equipped, it really is a home from home.

The location is fantastic everything is within walking distance for the fit and able. The hills I feel would make it hard work for those who are not so able. Having said that a taxi ride from the villa to the main part of Kalkan in no more than 10 lira.

Great views from the roof top terrace, we enjoyed a few bbq's up here!

We would definitely come again.

Location

From the Owner

Kalkan was the first place in Turkey that I visited and stayed in the Meldi hotel - a great place and somewhere where I still visit a lot. Kalkan is so pretty and set around a beautiful bay with over 100 delicious restaurants - it just seemed like paradise. Having since visited some of the other resorts in Turkey, I have not found anywhere that I like more than Kalkan (which is just as well really!). It is neither too big nor too small and caters for everybody, young and old, families or couples and there is so much to see and do in the area, you never get bored. Also, I never tire of the amazing view when I wake in the morning and look over the azure bay with the beautiful mountains as a backdrop.

Activity and Interests

Car: not necessary

Coast/Beach:

Kalkan has several beautiful beaches. A very pleasant pebbly public beach with crystal-clear water is located to the east of Kalkan's harbour. Otherwise, hop on a "dolmus" (a Turkish minibus - cheap, frequent and very convenient) and head for one of the two beaches near Kalkan.

Gorgeous Kaputas Beach is a lovely sandy swimming cove nestled at the foot of a striking mountain gorge, about 10 minutes from Kalkan, or Patara Beach a beautiful 18 kilometre stretch of sand backed by dunes.

Travel:

Air travel is typically from Gatwick or Manchester to Dalaman or Antalya airports in Turkey.

Transfer time from Dalaman airport is typically 1 hour 45 mins or 3.5 hours from Antalya.

Transfers and / or car hire can be arranged if required - please contact us for details / prices. Whilst a car is useful, it is definitely not essential in Kalkan as all facilities are within walking distance of the villa.

Further Details:

Kalkan is a small peaceful Mediterranean resort and fishing town on the beautiful Turquoise Coast of Turkey, which has not been touched by mass tourism. More sophisticated than the usual resort town, Kalkan appeals to travellers looking for more than a "sun and sea" holiday.

Because of its great charm, Kalkan has a growing number of perennial visitors who say the town is the only holiday destination they would choose to visit repeatedly. There is simply no other town quite like Kalkan along Turkey's coast. Kalkan has five very popular beach clubs (reached by shuttle from the harbour or taxi) - the Mahal, Kalamar, Likya, Patara and Yacht Club beach clubs. These are wonderful platform beaches and gardens cut into the bottom of the mountainside. They offer everything from swimming and sunbathing to bar facilities.

Facilities

From the Owner

The villa is one of the closest to town yet still in a quiet and peaceful location which is important to me to know that my children can come home safely and without the need for taxis or long dark walks up steep hills and unmade up roads in the evening. The property is like home from home and I have endeavoured to think of everything to make your stay an experience to remember. As it is also my personal home, there are all the personal touches to make it a really family home. I love the garden which has 2 huge pomegranate trees, orange and lemon and avocado which has just produced its first 'crop' of avocados since purchasing the villa! I have to say - it wasn't the tastiest - but I ate it anyway! The internet is a very useful facility enabling me to work in Kalkan as well.
