Villa in Kalkan, Mediterranean Region, Turkey - Quiet location, private garden, light, airy unique villa.
Villa Mandalina is a large south facing villa with sunshine all day long until sunset an amazing bonus as some villas lower down are in shade from 4pm onwards. Exceptional views across Kalkan bay and the surrounding countryside, to Patara Beach and the dramatic Taurus Mountains. A large roof top terrace is ideal for drinks whilst enjoying the fabulous sunsets. Private pool, garden terraces and BBQ. Turkish style gazebo and outside dining area. Fully equipped, air-conditioning/heating. Situated in a peaceful location on the Kalkan hillside with fantastic views from all rooms, especially our galleried landing. Kalkan is a pretty harbour town, lovely waterfront and roof top terraced restaurants. There are many sandy beaches within easy reach including the famous Patara world heritage site 18km beach, beautiful Kaputas with its turquoise waters. Cobbled streets, with cascading flowers from the traditional houses, add to the charm. Kalkan is a delight and our guests return each year.
The villa has a large well stocked garden with the scent of Jasmine and honeysuckle prevailing. We have a few friends in the garden, being a local tortoise who happily rummages amongst the plants.

A lovely wonderful stay at Villa Mandalina, the children enjoyed the pool and the garden and enjoyed watching the local Turkish lady pass by with her goats!
A light and airy contemporary villa, well furnished with stunning sea views from all rooms. An oasis from the heat of the town in full season. Sarah Walton & family.

Wonderful villa with fantastic views
We really enjoyed our stay at Villa Mandalina, it was all we had hoped for. Truly amazing views across the Kalkan Bay, no villas in front to block the view. Due to its South facing position we had sunshine until sunset , whereas the villas in the bay were in shadow early on. The villa is very spacious, lovely rooms , modern and light as all windows face the sea. Our children loved the pool and large garden area. We particularly enjoyed the quiet from the town and it was lovely to come home to after a day out sightseeing. Can thoroughly recommend a stay here and we have rebooked another holiday at Mandalina.
