About the Owner

My name is Mehmet, I was born in Kalkan and since my retirement from the Turkish Airforce have managed the family business here in Kalkan. The family has been involved in tourism since 1980 and now maintains 9 villas, runs a successful restaurant. Because of our unique knowledge and connections with Kalkan we are able to offer a comprehensive service not only in first class maintenance but in organising any tours, trips and transfers if required.

Villa Lilyum - Lovely !

  • 5 of 5

We had a fantastic holiday at villa Lilyum in Kalkan. The villa was lovely, well maintained, very spacious and had everything we needed for our holiday . Mehmet was there to meet us on arrival and was available by phone throughout our stay. The views over Kalkan Bay are spectacular from the villa, especially from the roof top terrace. Whilst the centre of Kalkan is within walking distance the local taxi service from the villa was great. Kalkan hosts a variety of restaurants which all serve a great standard of food . Several of the restaurants have roof top terraces which makes dining out really special. We would definitely consider returning and would definitely recommend the villa to others.

Fabulous holiday in Villa Lilyum

  • 5 of 5

Thank you Mehmet for allowing us to stay in Villa Lilyum, a very well presented and fully equipped home from home with fantastic service from Mehmet, Baram and Jimmy. Our family thoroughly enjoyed our stay with David's birthday celebrations as one of our highlights. The children really enjoyed scuba diving and banana boating. We are now looking at next years calendar and will be in touch shortly.

Practically perfect

  • 5 of 5

As a frequent visitor to Kalkan, I wanted to show it off to my family. As there were 4 generations (from 7 months to great grandparents and everything in between) we needed somewhere big enough to accommodate us all - and this was perfect. It has everything you could possibly want. As with most villas in Kalkan, the walk back from town is a little arduous but taxis are cheap and readily available. We also discovered that the pizza delivery company will deliver bottles of wine when you've run out. Most useful! Couldn't recommend this villa (or Kalkan) enough. Can't wait to return.

A Lovely Villa

  • 4 of 5

The villa was very good and well equipped. It has 6 large bedrooms and 6 luxurious bathrooms. It is within 10 minutes walk of the centre of Kalkan and is 20 minutes to the seafront. The cab drivers know the villa and so can bring teenagers safely home at night. We had a good stay there. Mehmet will arrange trips and a car for you. Nothing is too much trouble. The villa is also a reasonable price.

Fabulous villa

  • 5 of 5

The villa was fabulous, very clean and we found everything we needed. We were greeted at 11.30pm by a welcoming party with hot food! The owner and his brother could not do enough for us, they arranged taxi for thy beach and to and from the airport. On our last day they moved us to another villa as our flight was a late flight, we found the villa and the owner way above our expectations. We would recommend to anyone.

From the Owner

Villa Lilyum - was built by myself in 2008 and in the future would like to build others to the same quality and finish as this delightful villa.

Activity and Interests

Nearest Airport : Dalaman at 130 Kilometres Nearest Barpub : Local Bar at 0.5 Kilometres Nearest Ferry : Fethiye at 80 Kilometres Nearest Golf : Belek at 260 Kilometres Nearest Restaurant : Local restaurants at 0.5 Kilometres Nearest Ski : Saklıkent at 220 Kilometres Nearest Beach : Public Beach at 0.5 Kilometres Car: not necessary


Kalkan's stone beach is about a five minute by walking. There are wonderful sandy beaches nearby. Patara beach has 7 miles of golden sands and is considered by The Sunday Times as amongst the top six in the world. Patara is about a 15 minute drive away - buses leave for Patara every 30 minutes. Kaputas beach is a 10 minute drive in the opposite direction, on the road to Kas, which is well worth a visit.


Dalaman is the nearest airport now open all year round. It is approximately 1.5 hours drive. There are direct flights from many UK airports, including direct flights with easyJet from Gatwick. Antalya airport is 2.5 – 3 hour drive. Transfers by private taxi, minibus or car hire can be arranged with prior notice.


Surrounded by many places of interest from 10 to 30 minutes drive.Places to visit within easy reach by car are the Lycian Way, Saklikent Gorge, Kekova sunken city, Tlos, Xanthos, Letoon and the magnificent beach of Patara. It is possible to experience a Hamam or other relaxing spa treatments within a short walk of the villa.

Further Details:

A hire car is not essential but taxis will come in three minutes if needed. most of the supermarkets offer a home delivery service. Ali Baba's restaurant, also do a take away service. The nearest bank, doctors, pharmacy, dentist are all with in 5 mins At the southwest corner of the Turkish coast (Turquoise Coast) lies one of the most beautiful and unspoiled areas of the Mediterranean. Kalkan was once occupied by the Greek Ottomans and their legacy has left an old town full of character. It has steep cobbled streets that wind down towards the harbour and the locals are exceptionally friendly.

During the day Kalkan is almost disarmingly laid-back, as visitors choose to enjoy the crystal clear waters lapping the Lycian coast. The public beach next to Kalkan's harbour was recently extended and is more than adequate for swimming and sunbathing. However you choose to spend your days, no-one can resist being back in Kalkan in the evening, for the variety and quality of eating places on offer is quite astonishing for such a compact town. There are little restaurants that are so low key that many visitors never notice them; just the place to enjoy delicious and genuine local cooking. Magical surroundings, a dash of relaxed sophistication and a seeminly limitless variety of places to explore make Kalkan irresistible. The restaurants in Kalkan offer an exceptionally high standard of food and service ,many restaurants have romantic roof terraces looking out over Kalkan. Eating out is excellent value and the Turkish wines are surprisingly good. The pretty cobbled streets of the old town are an Aladdin's cave with an abundance of shops selling clothes, jewellery, handbags, gifts, etc. There is also a weekly market on a Thursday. There are a number of bars that stay open through the small hours and play music but no loud nightclubs.
