About the property

Apartment in Patara Prince Resort, Kalkan, Turkey - Situated On The Magnificent Patara Prince Resort With Direct Access To The Sea

The Patara Prince Resort is a famously recognised hotel and resort. The apartment offers seclusion and privacy yet is only a few minutes away from the centre of Kalkan. Set on a hill overlooking Kalkan bay.The apartment boasts stunning views. The architecture is a 'grand design' with use of local stone and lush plantation that sympathetically enhance the natural surroundings and reach down to the private shoreline.

The architect has created atmosphere, elegance and style. The facilities could easily fill your day. They include private sun platforms, water sports, diving lessons, tennis courts, volleyball, restaurants and bars, shops, sauna, massage - to name a few!

Also a choice of two seawater pools and a fresh water pool, plus a children's pool and water slide, and a handy kiddies club. The resort has it's own shuttle bus which will take you around the resort and a private water taxi to ferry you to and from Kalkan.

About Sue Lewin

Hi, We are Sue and Nigel Lewin and live near Lyme Regis.

I'm a traditional Sign Writer/artist and Nigel is a Sales executive.

Sue Lewin purchased this apartment in 2004

Why Sue Lewin chose Kalkan

We fell in love with Kalkan on our first visit, Pretty streets full of character, great restaurants and superb beaches nearby. Then when we found a property on the Patara Prince Resort we couldn't believe our luck!We have never seen such unique and beautiful resort in all our travels. Amazing architecture, beautifully landscaped with choice of three outdoor pools, the grand pool, the round pool for adults only and the affinity pool close to the apartment with its stunning views. With the benefit of direct access to the private shoreline, It ticked all our boxes and then some!

There is always plenty of sunloungers available and has secluded bathing platforms along it's 200 private shoreline.

What makes this apartment unique

Staying at the resort is very relaxing but with so many facilities you can easily fill your day. The resort has superb restaurants but as the property is self catering it is convenient to be able to prepare your own meals. The advantages it has over individual properties is that you don't have to leave the resort as it provides every thing you need to have a truly fantastic stay with full use of the many facilities.

Guestbook comments from the owner

'Nice apartment on beautiful complex. Good sea veiws from balcony although the walk up the hill could be a bit much for some (although there is a regular minibus service). Kalkan is a lovely town and there are many bars and restaurants to choose from, both there and in the resort. Overall, a most enjoyable holiday and no complaints. Everything ran smoothly. Many thanks.'

'The apartment was very comfortable, the air-con was a god send! You can cook basic meals but we preferred to eat out. the complex was very pretty, the climb down to the waterside got better everyday and the shuttle bus around the complex was a god send! Not for unfit or people with mobility problems. The views were excellent, very quiet and the gardens were picturesque. We enjoed eating out in Kalkan most of all, The Doy Doy, Aubergine restaurant and best of all the Arena restaurant. If you like riding try the Patara sands beach ride, we went twice and it was fabulous galloping through the sea.'

The appartment was just as described, clean and well equiped with life-saving aircon. The view from the balcony is beautiful and it was in a very quiet location with the local (rather pricey) local store just a few minutes walk away. The resort is just amazing with 4 pools to choose from and friendly staff. We went on the day boat trip from the resort as well as having a turkish bath and indulging in the buffet breakfast on our last morning. All of these with 25% discount which made them very reasonable. I loved the whole holiday so much that I have already booked to return in May.

Special interest holidays:

Turkish cuisine cookery classes are available at the "Guru" restaurant, just outside of Kalkan. Treking along the "Lycian way" Visit archaeological and geological sights. Watersports. Unsploilt beaches.


The sea and bathing platforms are pleasant five minute walk through the beautiful tropical gardens of the resort. There is also a free shuttle bus to take you around the resort. Short 15 min stroll into Kalkan town. Nearby beaches on local bus routes. Many fantastic excursions in the regeion.


Kalkan is approx 90 minutes from Dalaman airport and 270 minutes from Antalya airport. We can arrange an airport transfer service if required.


The town of Kalkan is a ten minute walk from the apartment or a five minute ride by the resorts boat taxi service. Why not visit Patara beach, just a short bus ride away, with it's stunning unspoilt 20km stretch of white sands, and clamber about the infinite archaelogical sites such as it's ancient amphitheatre? Visit the pretty town of Kas by local bus 26 km and stop off at Kaputas beach on he way.

Further Details:

Kalkan is a pretty fishing town built on a hillside with a grid of streets sloping down to the harbour. The restaurant scene is very good indeed, that caters for all tastes, from traditional Turkish dishes, fresh fish and intenational cuisine. Many restaurants have roof top terraces to enjoy great views of the bay, and not a McDonalds in sight!

Walk around the narrow winding streets and discover unique little shops that sell local crafts, from jewellery, carpets, ceramics, leather, Turkish delight and spices. Not to mention boutiques that offer their own alteration services! There is a weekly local market where you can rub shoulders with the locals. Or take local transport a little further along the breathtaking coast to Kas, and perhaps stop off to swim at the perfect little beach of Kaputas, with it's turquoise sea. You will never be bored with the countless thing to do and see!
