About Huseyin Dogan

I am from Kalkan and my family have homes in the village as well as in Bezirgan. I met my Irish wife 16 years ago and we had a multi cultural wedding in Kalkan: bagpipes, kilts and confetti. We have had our villa for 5 years and chose it for its wonderful location in Kalamar Bay. The views are fantastic and it is in a quiet location but close to nightlife.

Huseyin Dogan purchased this villa in 2008

Why Huseyin Dogan chose Kalkan

My wife and I met in Kalkan. My wife, her family and friends enjoy the relaxed atmosphere of the area and the fact that it has not been spoiled by tourism. Villa Tara is in Kalamar, a beautiful and peaceful bay within easy walk of the nightlife of the Kalamar and Kalkan town. We chose the villa for its location and for the views. The beautiful coastline and fabulous views of Kalkan and Kalamar Bay still inspire us. My wife loves the culture of the area with its numerous ancient sites and wonderful gorges and mountains. The people of the area are welcoming and friendly- my wife says they have a lot in common with the Irish and enjoys the craic. The other highlight of is the wonderful food and vast choice of restaurants, cafes, bars and shops.

What makes this villa unique

Our villa offers a flexible choice for couples and families with the lower ground floor offering a separate lounge, bedroom and en-suite. The villa has lots of outside space giving lots of options for BBQs and dining. The villa enjoys fabulous views over the bay and all rooms have balconies or outside terraces. Set at the top of the bay it is a short walk to the local shops and restaurants. The town of Kalkan is only 15 mins walk -no big hills. We like Kalamar beach club only 5 minutes walk and they give you a lift back.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Wonderful holiday. The villa was beautiful, spectacular views. Kalamar Bay was so peaceful and we loved going into Kalkan to dine. Evans Family Aberdeen.

Thank you for a fantastic holiday. The villa was really spacious for our 2 families. We loved the views from each room- sea, mountains and the sunsets were beautiful. The short walk to Kalkan enabled us to enjoy the peace of kalamar and the nightlife of the town. Can't wait to go next year. Crawford Family Ireland.

First time in Turkey and the villa was all we could have dreamed off. Lots of space for the 7 of us. Lovely bedrooms with lots of storage and the views from the balconies were beautiful. Quiet but close to restaurants and bars- the info pack was really useful. We were able to explore the local area- even went on a dolmus. Booking for next year. Veste Family.

Thank you for everything-a wonderful holiday, we fell in love with Turkey. Your villa was perfect, a beautiful setting. Definitely will be back. Ward Family.

perfect location for peace and tranquillity

  • 5 of 5

The views are amazing.

The perfect location - local town 15 minutes

walks with picturesque scenery

Local shops a stone throw away

Everyone so pleasant and willing to help

my daughter is vegan - a nightmare i thought

Not at all. The restaurants bend over backwards to accommodate you.

There were 8 adults in the villa

ample space

fully equipped kitchen

great size pool- lights inside pool so perfect for an evening swim.

This is our second time here this year in Kalkan in Tara villa and we will certainly be going back again.

plenty to do if you want otherwise just taken in the sun and surroundings.

Perfect in every way

  • 5 of 5

Brilliant holiday at Villa Tara. Views are stunning put over the bay. Villa is even better than pictures, hard to do it justice. Pool had sun all day and plenty of sun lounges. It is very private and not overlooked. Villa was a real home from home. Everything you needed for a relaxing holiday. Close to lovely restaurants. Highly recommend for a perfect holiday.

amazing villa.

  • 5 of 5

I had a lovely holiday staying at the villa. It is a home from home with everything you could possibly need. The villa is beautifully maintained and clean to high standard. The layout is perfect for a large group and is spacious enough for different families sharing.

Being pool side is so relaxing with many sunbeds in a beautifully maintained garden with beautiful flowers.The pool is cleaned everyday.

The views across Kalamar Bay are amazing from many places within the villa but particularly the top terrace which is more beautiful of an evening.

Customer service from the owner was amazing as arranged all transfers and ensured we had all information we wanted for trips and restaurants.

There are many good restaurants in Kalkan,I would recommend Chillies , the Olive garden and Cafe Vita.

Saklikent Gorge, Kekova, Kas, a boat trip, and visiting a fish farm are a must.

I would recommend this villa to relatives and friends and will be returning.

Wonderful Villa

This was our 3rd time at Villa Tara, we love it. The villa is ideal for our family with lots of space both inside and out. The pool is a suntrap with lots of sun loungers for chilling out, they even supply beach towels. The views are superb. We spent many evenings on the roof terrace and dining terrace just taking in the scenery. The villa is really close to the local beach and there are good restaurants only 5 minutes away. We hired a car this time and got out to see the local area. Patara beach and pink beach club were our favourites. It is only a 15 minute walk into Kalkan and we enjoyed a few nights in the harbour. There are lots of good places to eat here. We also managed a boat trip- really fun for the kids. The villa is well equipped- everything you need. There is a good supply of books and DVDs if you want a night in. Huseyin was incredibly helpful- he provided us with information before we went and can organise transfers. If you want a peaceful location but still be close to restaurants, beaches and shops this is the perfect villa. We had wonderful holiday and will definitely be back.

Myself and my family had a wonderful holiday. The villa was beautifully kept and with lots of dvds for the kids! We were able to go out for something to eat and come back to the villa with the children because it was just a lovely place to be. The kids were never out of the pool unless it was to eat. The kitchen was well equipped and the family enjoyed the atmosphere. Easy walking distance to the beach if a change of scenery was needed. We spent many a night on the roof terrace enjoying the wonderful views.

Great place to chill and be next to all the amenities. Definitely recommended.

Owner's Response: Glad your holiday went well and the family had a relaxing time. It is easy to entertain the kids, give them a pool and they are happy. We do keep the villa well stocked with DVDs and it is good you appreciated the views- roof terrace does make you feel you are in another world. Hope to see you again.

Special interest holidays:

The owner can organise daytrips with tailor made itineraries to places of interest. Kalkan is centred in the Lycian way with easy access to sites of historical interest. Trips to the mountain villages to see the traditional way of life can also be organised. Boat trips for private charter can also be arranged.


Kalamar beach club is a short walk from the villa and offers a full range of water activities, restaurant and bar. Kalkan beach, beach clubs and harbour are a 20 min walk through the village. Close by are the popular local beaches of Kaputas and Patara which are easily accessed by taxis or dolmus. Kaputas is a sandy cove accessed by steps whilst Patara is a protected area with over 18 km of sand.


The nearest airport is Dalaman which is 120 km away. It takes 1.5 hours transfer. Antalya airport is 280km and takes 3.5 hours transfer. Transfers can be arranged on request either by taxi or for larger groups by minibus. Private car hire can be arranged with pick up either at the airport or villa.


The nearest town is Kalkan which offers a good range of shops, restaurants and bars. There is a weekly market on Thursday. The local mountain village is Bezirgan and the drive to the village gives spectacular views over Kalkan Bay. Kas is 27 km or 30 mins drive away and is a pretty town of a similar size to Kalkan. Fethiye is the largest local town and is 1 hour by car. It is famous for its large maket and for its fish market. It is a bustling harbour town and has a good selection of shops.

Further Details:

The villa is on a quiet street at the top of the bay and only 5 minutes walk from the local shops and restaurants. Cafe Vita is a popular restaurant with guests- best chips in Kalamar. Relax on the ottoman platform with a complimentary paper and enjoy a turkish coffee. The shop next door will provide for all your needs and has fresh bread everyday. Cross the road and book in for a steam and massage at the local therapy centre. A short walk will take you into Kalkan if you can resist stopping for fabulous pastries at the cafes on the way. There are lots of restaurants to tempt you on the walk to Kalkan but do try to make it into town at least once during your stay.

Kalkan has several banks and a post office- the post office does not close until 11 pm in summer and is the cheapest place to phone home or change money. There are several large supermarkets in Kalkan- at the roundabout on the way in or up the hill towards the market. You really can buy anything you need, there is a good range of local and international products. Imported products will tend to be pricier than at home. The fruit and vegetables are delicious in Turkey- fresh and organic. The town has several butchers and a fresh fish shop.

The centre of town is a conservation area and the cobbled streets stretching down to the harbour are lined with shops, cafes and restaurants. You will be spoilt for choice. From gold/ silver, handbags, ceramics to clothing each shop has its charms- stop and browse and enjoy a turkish tea.

Kalkan restaurants are famous for their international cuisine, service and style. We all have our favourites, it is hard to go wrong. After dinner head to the cafes and bars- after work the locals will dance the night away.

The harbour gives access to the local beachs and beach clubs offering boat trips,water sports and diving lessons. Alternative activities such as horse riding, guided walks and para gliding are available.

Kalkan has a hospital, medical centre and pharmacies.
