About Pauline Spiers

I am based in Bahrain with my husband who is a management consultant to the energy sector. Our two daughters who are both in their 20's live and work in London. We bought the villa in 2008. We had spent the previous four years holidays in Kalkan when we decided to buy. It was the one place in the world that we kept returning to and everyone in the family enjoyed. The guaranteed sunshine from May - October was one factor, but there is so much to do - from historical sites to retail therapy to water sports to chilling. In the evenings the town comes alive with a multitude of wonderful restaurants. Don't hesitate to visit - you will love it!

Pauline Spiers purchased this villa in 2008

Why Pauline Spiers chose Lycian & Turquoise Coast

We enjoy living in warm climates and buying the villa was part of our long term plan to have a property overseas. At the time we were still based in the UK and had enjoyed many years of family holidays in Kalkan with our teenage daughters. It is the only place we have found that we like to return to year after year for family holidays and our 28 year old daughter still says Kalkan is her favourite place in the world. Bearing in mind she has lived in Bangkok for five years when she was a child and we have travelled extensively as a family I think that is a sound recommendation.

What makes this villa unique

The villa is where we come to relax and recharge our batteries - it is 15 minutes walk from the centre of Kalkan and is so peaceful that sometimes we have to literally drag ourselves out but at other times we are keen to go into town and savour the vast array of excellent restaurants. Everybody is so friendly that you cannot help but feel part of the local community. There is a myriad of activities to take part in if you do want to be active.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Our third visit to Kalkan and this is our favourite villa!

Our children have voted this holiday as the "best ever". The villa is perfect!

Having been and stayed in many places can say with confidence that this villa is truly exceptional.

What a wonderful villa and such a beautiful location. Totally exceeds expectations - will definitely recommend. Kalkan is a wonderful place with plenty to offer everyone. People are so very friendly and always willing to help. Lovely, lovely stay.

I have been waxing lyrical to all about the villa, resort and weather. My family have stayed in some really lovely places over the last 10 years but we felt truly spoilt at your villa.

For our first holiday all together in years we couldn't have asked for more. The villa far exceeded expectations and everyone we've met here have gone beyond the call of duty to be helpful and friendly.

Beautiful Villa, Great Location, Great Views

  • 5 of 5

A very beautiful and spacious villa with stunning views, fully furnished and equipped to accommodate for a large group of people (we were a family of 6 adults, 2 children and 1 infant). The kitchen is very well equipped for cooking and BBQs. Each room had en-suites and balconies with amazing views. The terrace is grande with various seating areas so everyone can enjoy a different part of the villa with a different view at the same time. The pool was the highlight for the kids, and having an additional access from the lower-ground bedroom was very handy to get them dried up and freshened up after a swim without having to walk through the villa! The best spot for the younger couple was the top floor roof terrace with a very romantic low seating area overlooking Kalkan! Very friendly maintenance staff, with no disturbances at all. Quiet and ideal location, with nearest shops and restaurants under 5 minutes walk. Kalkan town is approximately 25 mins walk. The owner is very friendly and responsive if you have any questions or special requests.

Kalkan Retreat Villa

  • 5 of 5

Superb villa, could not have wished for anything more! Spacious, scrupulously clean, very well equipped, beautiful views and a walk away from the sea and local restaurants. Kalkan is a bustling seaside village a few mins.taxi ride and Patara, a stunning sandy beach, a 15 min.drive.away. There is something for all the family, including boat trips and scuba diving. Very highly recommended indeed!

Perfect place for bringing family and friends together

  • 5 of 5

We had a party of 6 adults and 2 children. Everybody had plenty of room for themselves, privacy when needed and a choice of places to hang out together (the pool, the backyard, the terrace, etc.). The property is very nicely built and maintained. The owner was responsive to all inquiries and the maintenance team promptly responded to all our requests (including when we asked for a Turkish-style tea pot and coffee maker). Kalkan area has plenty to offer for every taste. We hope to be back for another retreat soon.

10/10. The villa is beautiful and absolutely immaculate. Everything is there for your comfort and ease- balconies in every room, great ensuite facilities with large showers and plenty of room. Even a water cooler and filter system which is replenished by request and no fuss. The staff on hand are so friendly and helpful. The owner was extremely accommodating and helpful also. The transfers were arranged for us, and the minibus was immaculate, on time, provided the baby seat requested. The villa has stunning views, and a wonderful pool which is cleaned every day without fuss. We enjoyed Kalkan and the Turkish coast thoroughly. Even the airport at dalaman was impressive, roads excellent, buses immaculate, likewise taxis. Extremely friendly locals, lots of good places to eat. Sea is clear and pleasant to swim in. I can't recommend it highly enough. Brenda Lampard.

Excellent villa located in a quiet part of Kalkan.

  • 5 of 5

The property was all we hoped it would be. It was very spacious and well equipped. Bathrooms were plentiful and luxurious. The pool was a good size for swimming and playing. It was great to have the choice of heating the pool as the water would have been too cold to enjoy in April. The table tennis table was also a hit with everyone. Kalkan old town was about a 20 minute walk, mainly downhill. We enjoyed the walk there and back but taxis were plentiful costing about 10 lire if the walk back seemed too much effort. If we didn't fancy the walk there were plenty of good quality restaurants, a small supermarket and Turkish bath all within a 10 minute walk.

Fantastic villa in an ideal location

  • 5 of 5

Kalkan Retreat is a luxurious villa which is exceptionally well appointed with everything we could wish for. The villa is beautifully furnished and immaculate throughout.

Pauline, the owner, was extremely helpful and organised our airport transfers and car hire for us. The villa has information about the area, restaurants etc all of which was very helpful.

I cannot recommend the villa enough - we hope to return soon.

Car: not necessary


The nearest beach club is 5 minutes walk down the hill. They provide a free pick up and delivery service. The beach club has direct access to the sea and offers sunbathing, swimming, water sports and restaurant facilities. There are numerous other beach clubs in the area.

Kaputas Beach is just 15 minutes drive away and Patara is approximately 20 minutes. Patara's 12 miles of golden sand is home to protected turtles and has been described as one of the ten best beaches in the world.


The nearest airport is Dalaman (1.5 hours transfer) but flights are also available to Antalya (3 hours transfer). There are direct flights to Dalaman from many UK airports, including British Airways and EasyJet flights from Gatwick. Transfers can be arranged through the owners. Car hire is not included and is not essential although it is possible to arrange car hire through the owners if desired. Taxis are readily available.


Kalamar Bay is wonderful for people looking for peace and tranquility and provides the ideal base to explore some of Turkey's finest heritage sites in the Lycian region. Kalkan is just 15 minutes walk away or a 3 minute taxi ride. 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:

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 seemingly limitless variety of places to explore make Kalkan irresistible. The restaurants in Kalkan offer an exceptionally high standard of food and service, some of the best prepared and freshest food we've tasted on our worldwide travels. 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.
