Grahame, I have just spent a fantastic 2 weeks at your villa in Kalkan, what terrific views. I may indeed wish to return next year especially with your offer on tarif, however I will have to let you know later.

Again many thanks excellent! Steve & Pam Locker.
Activity and Interests
Unless you have already have hired a car, it is then recommended that you take a taxi from the centre of Kalkan to its surrounding coast line and beaches which are about 5 to 10 minutes drive away which will cost about between 25 - 35 YTL (£8 - £10).
Dalaman is the nearest airport to Kalkan and is open all year and is used by Fly Thomas Cook, Flybe, Easy Jet, Ryan Air etc. Collection from Dalaman Airport can be arranged and costs £60 for up to 3 passengers and £75 for 4 -6 and the journey takes about 1 1/2 hours. It is suggested that if you plan to do any sightseeing whilst on vacation that you hire a car in advance as you will then always have transportation available for use. Car hire can also be arranged upon receipt of written request.
The villa itself is located in the Kiziltas area of Kalkan and the hire of car is a useful extra as it is about a 10-15 minute walk (downhill) to the centre of Kalkan but is nearly double that for the return (uphill) journey. Having a car is not essential but it does however provide you with the flexibility of movement and is always there when you need it, especially if one plans to do some sight seeing etc. In addition, there is a Dolmus service (local bus) that stops close by.
The historic town of Kalkan is situated on Turkey's fabulous Lycian Coast and was once a simple Turkish / Greek fishing village. Today's Kalkan however is completely different and is quietly sophisticated and postcard pretty with some good quality low-rise hotels and privately owned villas, a multitude of excellent roof-top restaurants offering all manner of culinary delights, together with a good selection of stylish and atmospheric blues and jazz bars. Unlike some other Turkish coastal resorts, Kalkan's main economy is derived from tourism and consequently it's inhabitants put a lot of time, effort and pride into preserving their town's historic back ground. As a result of this is, there are very strict building regulations in place that have to be adhered to, so that the town can maintain its special charm and ambiance. The wonderful hospitality that is generated by the Kalkan public, is another reason why most first-time visitors invariably return time after time. The village shops stay open 'til around midnight and are well stocked with interesting antiques, crafts, jewellery, carpets and clothing. The narrow streets of the old part of town are lined with whitewashed shuttered buildings festooned with brightly coloured bougainvillea intermingled with shops and terrace-topped restaurants. These streets twist and turn down to the harbour area, which is the focus of the village and where you can enjoy a meal or a drink whilst watching the world go by or by looking at the array of elegant 'gullets' (type of boat). During the day, you can make use of one of the many 'beach clubs', visit the local market (Thursday) or engage in some of the local sporting activities (such as water-skiing, parascending, scuba diving, trekking etc), take a trip to one of the historical sites, drive up into the mountains, cruise on a gullet or just simply relax by your pool.
