About the Owner

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.

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.

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.

A Perfect Retreat

  • 5 of 5

We have just returned from a very enjoyable stay at this charming and beautifully cared for Villa, located in Kalamar Bay (15 minute walk from Kalkan).

The owner Huseyin was excellent and you can book with full confidence that he will look after you and be there to help if you need anything. On our second night around 9:30pm we had a problem with some lights not working on the roof terrace - within 30 minutes of texting him, the caretaker was with us and had fixed the problem! Huseyin was also able to book our car transfer to and from the airport and it allowed us to relax and enjoy our holiday stress free knowing that we were in good hands.

I was really impressed with the condition of the Villa when we arrived and the internal decorations are very nice indeed. The pool is a decent size and you get plenty of sun during the day. The kitchen facilities were superb, including a water cooler and there is a barbeque for grills on the roof terrace at night.

There is so much to do in and around Kalkan that you will probably not spend a whole lot of time at the Villa itself, but when you come back to it of an evening you will appreciate the homely qualities and the spectacular views that are afforded from the location of this lovely villa in a quiet and relatively private corner of Kalamar Bay.

It is of course a great place to spend the day lazing by the pool if you prefer, and there are some amazing restaurants very close by to eat at reasonable prices. We look forward to coming back again one day!

Owner's Response: Mark I was delighted you and your friends had a great holiday and intend to come back someday. Sorry the lights were faulty but our caretaker is a gem. Any problem and he is there right away. Having the BBQ on the roof terrace is great- the view is spectacular. Getting away from life`s stresses is what a good holiday is all about. Hope to see you again. Huseyin & Caroline

From the Owner

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.

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.
