About the Owner

We are both retired after having professional careers for many years in the consultancy & engineering sectors. We have always lived in southern England but travelled extensively around the world enabling us to experience top class renting in many countries.

This we have tried to repeat in villa Cukur which we stay in for several month each year resulting in limited rental periods. Our calendar is however always up to date showing our summer vacancies.

We believe that spending long periods in Turkey you should learn the language so we practice our Turkish when we are in the country.

We arrived here thinking that if the villa was half as good as it looked on the ad,we would be very pleased.Of course,it was NOT half as good- it was everything promised. Villa cukur is quite ,quite stunning, simple that!Congratulations to those who follow us! Helswgborg,Sweden.

The website does not does not show you how lovely Villa Cukur is .We have stayed in other villas in the village this one is spotless and the pool is cleaned every morning by the agent, who will take the time to talk to you an help you to arrange any site seeing trips. Newcastle .uk Wonderful location and villa would not hesitate to recommend to any looking at a holiday in Kalkan. Reading Berks

A Fabulous Holiday Enjoyed by All

  • 5 of 5

We had the most wonderful holiday in Kalkan and Villa Cukur. I have to admit I was nervous before we travelled to Turkey given the recent coup and ongoing political events but my fears were unfounded - the resort was beautiful and seemingly untouched by troubles elsewhere in the country.

Villa Cukur is a wonderful villa - it is exactly as seen in the pictures but the outstanding features are the gardens and views. I loved the roof terrace where the breeze was cool and the views spectacular day and night. The villa is the best equipped accommodation we have ever stayed in - and as mentioned in other reviews there is everything from ice cube trays and packs through to baking trays and cake tins. The grounds and villa are kept immaculately clean with Mehmet on hand to provide assistance whenever required. We hired our own car and travelled independently - again we found this easy and without problems. We have been to Turkey before but never to Kalkan. We had a fabulous time - the restaurants are excellent value for money and were enjoyed by even the pickiest members of the family! We will definitely be back and we would thoroughly recommend both the property and the area to anyone. There are lots of excursions to be had in the area and we would recommend visits to Kaputas Beach, Saklikent Gorge, Kekova, Patara Beach, Islamlar or simply pottering around Kalkan itself which is extremely pretty. We would also recommend the wonderful boat trips in Yildiz which can be arranged via Mehmet. If you are still unsure on whether Kalkan is right for you; I would recommend the EnjoyKalkan.com travel forum or KTLN which give lots of information on the area and full and frank holiday reviews! All in all this was one of the best holidays we have ever had!

Owner's Response: We are always please read how much guests have enjoyed their stay at Villa Cukur and Kalkan. We know that guests like the little touches we put in the villa, like the items we put in the kitchen. Our pool is cleaned every day and the garden attended to. A boat trip is an enjoyable day out for all the family with swims in the bays and very good food on Yildiz. We hope to see you again at Villa Cukur, we have bookings for 2017 under way already.

Lovely Villa!

  • 4 of 5

Beautiful views and a lovely private pool and garden. Suited 6 of us comfortably. The kitchen has most things you need and the bedrooms are nice and large. Supermarkets are very close, and the walk into town is no more than 20 mins to the harbour!

A lovely relaxing holiday was enjoyed!

Perfect family accommodation, everything we needed and more...

  • 5 of 5

Choosing a holiday rental can be a daunting experience if you've not stayed in the area before. As a family, we have travelled to Kalkan many times and even considered buying a home there, so we knew the area extremely well. Having said that, making a villa choice is still hard if all you have to go by is the online pics and reviews.

We decided on Villa Cukur for its location and the online pictures. Its location is close enough to town to walk in for shopping and/or dinner, far enough away to have a peaceful time away from lots of neighbours/pool overlookers and the hustle and bustle.

We were thrilled with our accommodation at Villa Cukur. It had everything we needed as a family, everything from BBQ equipment to plastic food storage pots to a sewing and first aid kit.

The kitchen is extremely well equipped and we ate in almost every night, it was a pleasure to be just 'at home' and be comfortable.

The bedrooms are clean and fresh, bathrooms were just as they should be.

The pool was fantastic, our youngest child is 4yrs and not confident in water so the gradual steps down into the pool was a good send. A real benefit when compared to the metal side steps in most other pools in Kalkan.

The owners are based in the UK and are extremely friendly, booking contact etc was excellent. As was the owners agent in Kalkan, just an email or call away and readily available to help with anything.

I wouldn't hesitate to recommend this property to anyone and I would defiantly stay again.

Owner's Response: Thank you Alison and family for your excellent review. We are always pleased to receive reviews from all our guests, but getting a review from a family who have been many times to Kalkan is very special. Our villa is not a place we come to one or two weeks a year we spend a large part of the year in Kalkan and put very little away when guests use the villa. What you get is what you see, we put items in the kitchen that we use and hope that our guests will look after them the same as they would in their own home. Hope to see you again in villa Cukur Alison like so many of our returning guests.

A world away from troubles in Istanbul

  • 5 of 5

This is our third visit to villa Cukar and our stay was excellent again. The garden is looking particularly good and it is very private. The pool was a very comfortable 30 degreesC.

Kalkan is a lovely town and the standard of restaurants is very high. We did not have a bad meal during our 10 day stay. There was no evidence of the troubles happening in other parts of Turkey. The locals were very welcoming and pleased to have tourists.

We did look at at alternative villas to book while we were there but we agreed that none were as good as this one in terms of facilities, privacy and location

Owner's Response: Thank you for writing this review we are so pleased you enjoyed your stay. This year has been hard for Kalkan because of the lower number of people holidaying there so good reviews do help. Regards, Ann & Mike Dedman

A little bit of Turkish delight

  • 5 of 5

Villa Cukur,

This lovely villa is of a very high standard and beautifully maintained. It is very well equipped both indoors and outside on the swimming pool patio and garden.

The pool is excellent and cleaned every day. We did feel that the steps into the pool were deep and rather slippy. A good hand rail would help.

It is well placed with lovely views and just a short walk into the town which is very touristic but nevertheless charming. Eating out is very good. Do get a taxi back. It is very steep.

Our experience was enhanced by Mehmet who was always available at any time, charming and a mine of good advice

We would definitely recommend this villa. We had a great time.

A beautiful villa with breathtaking views

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed at Villa Cukur three times, and it has always provided a haven of peace and tranquility where we can unwind and relax. The villa is well appointed and has a beautiful new kitchen, the pool is simply wonderful and the terraced areas are well screened from the neighbouring properties to provide privacy for sunbathing and al fresco dining. Nothing is too much trouble for the owners agent, Mehmet, who ensures everything at the villa is in tip top order and will happily arrange airport transfers and book trips for you. The walk into old Kalkan takes around fifteen minutes and we enjoyed the stroll back after dinner, but there is always the taxi if you prefer. We will be back!

Owner's Response: Thank you very much for your review of our villa. We are pleased that you once again enjoyed your stay. Enquirers often ask us how much privacy the villa has and we tell them more than most villas in Kalkan. We look forward to hearing from you soon to book your next stay.

We first saw our villa in May 2003, when it was being built, and after requesting some modifications we bought it the next day. This is the magic of Kalkan and many people we know have bought property in Kalkan in a similar way. Villa Cukur has regularly returning guests and we have updated the property regularly to offer a high quality holiday. Kalkan is special because of its beautiful setting, easy going atmosphere, its friendly people and most certainly its high quality restaurants.

From the Owner

As our detached spacious villa is our home from home we have regularly updated it so that on arrival we slot into our relaxed Turkish lifestyle with no effort and these stays in the villa are lengthy. The views from villa Cukur are breathtaking and we have a high degree of privacy. As the large pool has step entry it is very suitable for guests who are not very confident entering the water. Villa Cukur has several areas for al fesco dining/relaxing drinking depending on the time of day. Cukur now has a modern kitchen, secluded large mature garden which offers a pleasant alternative to the pool & terrace all of which is very much appreciated by all our guests. We have more equipment in our villa than is normally expected by two week stay guests and both us and our guests are very lucky to have an agent working with us who was born in the village, speaks English and has many contacts for trips and advice.
