About the Owner

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!

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.

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.

EXCELLENT

  • 5 of 5

THE VILLA EXCEEDED MY EXPECTATIONS. IT WAS BEAUTIFUL, WELL EQUIPPED AND IN MY OPINION WITHOUT FAULT.

THE ARRANGEMENTS IN PLACE WITH LOCAL STAFF WERE EXTREMELY HELPFUL AND RE-ASSURING FOR A FIRST TIME VISITOR.

A lovely bright and airy villa

  • 5 of 5

It was a spacious villa with marvellous views over the Med. There are four double bedrooms large sitting room and kitchen. A lovely shady verandah and either sun/shade all day. The villa is every well equipped

It is a 25 min walk to Kalkan village and the Marina and many restaurants but within 10 mins of villa there are more restaurants.

I would recommend visiting Kalkan and The Kalkan Retreat soon.

Wonderful Kalkan Retreat

  • 5 of 5

The villa is perfectly named! We stayed in this villa 5 years ago and enjoyed the experience so much that we choose to return again this year. We thought our previous experience could not be improved on, but it did, the new roof terrace added to our fantastic experience.

The villa has everything you could wish for and the staff are extremely helpful, everything is spotlessly clean with the pool cleaned every day along with the delivery of fresh bread for breakfast. We could not ask for anything more.

A wonderful location in Turkey with so much to see and experience and a wide range of excellent restaurants.

Another fantastic stay at Kalkan Retreat, I have no doubt we will be back again in future.

Perfect!

  • 5 of 5

Perfect holiday! A top notch spacious villa with ample room for food preparation, many different options for indoor and outdoor dining, BBQs, large pool (with space for all plus large inflatables!) and a short distance from town meaning car hire isn't strictly necessary with the help of a few taxis when the heat gets too much. A great view from the roof for sunset cocktails. Would return and recommend highly!

lovely

  • 5 of 5

This is the 6th time we have visited Kalkan Retreat and it is truly lovely. The owner has thought of everything you could wish for in this villa, including the option of blackout curtains if you wish to use them. It has a lovely roof terrace for sun downers and is very tastefully furnished. Unfortunately this year the owners put railings up in front of the pool which blocks the view slightly and if plants grow over the railings it will completely block the view when sitting by the pool...lets hope this doesn't happen. Other than that, a lovely villa

Owner's Response: I am delighted you have chosen to return to Kalkan Retreat as many times as you have, it's always a good indicator of very happy clients and I sincerely appreciate your business. I am also pleased you have already requested I give you first refusal on a two week stay during July 2017. It's a shame that the railings are not what you would have chosen but at the same time all of my other repeat clients have told me they think they are a good addition and I am confident they will not detract at all from future clients enjoyment of the villa. What we choose to do vis a vis plants only time will tell but you can be certain that we always choose to do what we think will increase our clients enjoyment of the villa after consultation with them and our management company.

Location

From the Owner

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.

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.

Distances:

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.

Facilities

From the Owner

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.
