About the property

Fantastic Bay Views: Peaceful Location: Adjacent beach and facilities, Local Shop & bar/restaurant

Located in the most desirable Kisla area of Kalkan. You will appreciate the premier location of the villa and just five minutes walking distance to the sea. Villa Samanyolu has been updated recently and is the perfect combination of a pool and sea side location, no long walks, taxi rides or crossing the D400 to the sea. You will find Villa Samanyolu spacious and wonderfully peaceful. The villa has a large private healthy chemical free pool and features easy access pool steps & poolside shower.

There are sea views from all levels, the roof terrace leading from the master bedroom has panoramic sea views across the entire Kalkan Bay. This is the perfect place to sit under the stars and enjoy a glass of locally produced wine.

The villa is in an excellent location with access on a quiet side-road, it has the benefit of having no road to the pool side and therefore no traffic noise when you sunbath. If you really do feel the need to catch up on emails or make Skype phone calls internet wi fi access is provided.

The sea front (250 m) has a free beach club with safe bathing, a bathing platform, water slide, sunbeds and umbrellas, children play area. There are watersports, a cafe, and restaurant plus a water taxi service which gives easy access to Kalkan harbour and the old town.

About Philip Swan

I took early retirement in 2009 after nearly 30 years as a university lecturer in history.

Philip Swan purchased this villa in 2009

Why Philip Swan chose Kalkan

I acquired Villa Samanyolu as a holiday home after staying with friends in their lovely villa in Kisla. I love the area, the food, and the Turkish people are exceptionally friendly. I spent a week looking at a lot of properties and as soon as I walked into Villa Samanyolu I knew this was the one. Many of the other properties were excellent, but none of them had the feeling of being a home and a luxury one at that! Kalkan is a great little upmarket town with everything you need for a successful holiday. In my view the Kisla area is the best in Kalkan. There's an abundance of restaurants of excellent quality and lots of things to do and places of interest to visit.

What makes this villa unique

Villa Samanyolu is in a fantastic location very close to the sea with stunning views of the bay. There is a great bar/restaurant a few streets behind the villa together with a small shop. The town is within easy striking distance via water taxi, bus, taxi or on foot if you feel like an early evening stroll. The villa itself is very well appointed with a luxurious and yet homely feeling. I have no doubt you will sink into a relaxing routine. If you are anything like me this will involve sitting out under the stars in the evening enjoying conversation and a glass of one of the excellent local wines.

Guestbook comments from the owner

This was our first visit to Kalkan and we have had the most wonderful holiday in the most perfect of villas. Samanyolu is truly luxurious and with spectacular views. The pool has been a hit with all 5 of us.

Kalkan Beach Club was really friendly and we enjoyed swimming with Turtles on a number of occasions.

Great fun, great facilities, great area...

Best Villa we've stayed in

  • 5 of 5

Villa Samanyolu is in the beautiful village of Kisla with outstanding views of the bay across Kalkan to Kalamar. Staying in Kisla has all the benefits of a quiet and relaxing location whilst being close enough to amenities so you don't need a car. The villa is extremely well equipped, furnished to a very high standard and immaculately clean, we wanted for nothing. We welcomed the air conditioning as temperatures were up in in the mid 30's and we enjoyed having the pool. The beds are extremely comfortable too! Philip came to our rescue with his lovely home as we were let down with a previous booking. We can't thank him enough for letting us stay in his wonderful villa. We will definitely be back!

A spacious and comfortable home from home, with all you need for a relaxing holiday.

  • 4 of 5

Villa Samonyolu is a delightful villa, set in the peaceful location of Kisla, a short distance from Kalkan. The villa has everything you need for a relaxing holiday, surrounded by beautiful views, a well equipped kitchen, comfortable beds and a fantastic swimming pool. There is non-stop sunshine available on the top terrace, with its breathtaking views over the beautiful Kalkan coast, and the ottoman sofa provided a very comfortable viewing station on many evenings.

The pool was amazing and we spent many hours relaxing around it. Our 9 year old water baby loved it!

Kisla is a lovely location, away from the bustle of Kalkan, but with a nearby grocery store for essentials and Kalkan Beach Park just 5mins away, which served great milkshakes and burgers!

Kalkan is a simple 5min drive (by your very friendly & personal taxi driver!) away, where you are spoilt for dining choices, many in beautiful rooftop restaurants. There are also plenty of shops to barter for your favourite leather goods and much more!

We would recommend one if the many boat trips on offer, as well as the water sports on offer at Aristos Watersports in Kalkan.

We had an amazing two weeks at Villa Samanyolu and would recommend to anyone considering a holiday in Kalkan. We really hope to return one day!

Fantastic villa in lovely location

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time at Villa Samanyolu. The villa more than exceeded our expectations. It is spacious, clean and well equipped - a real home from home. Some fantastic views and we loved evenings on the top terrace. The pool at night is fantastic all lit up in blue - just right for a late night dip under the stars.

We really liked the area and the proximity of the villa to the sea, beach club, and bars and restaurants on those occasions we did not want to go to town.

All round excellent

Really fantastic stay in this beautiful villa

  • 5 of 5

Our family loved this villa. In fact we think it is the best we have ever stayed in, and we have stayed in a lot over the years. It is really well appointed and did not feel like your average holiday accommodation. The recent upgrades certainly enhanced a villa which was already exceptional. The villa was very clean and tidy, everything worked as it should. The cleaners do a fantastic job - I did feel sorry for them clearing up after our messy children. But they came in and did their magic and the place was spotless.

We loved the location and situated away from the noise of the town was ideal. The beach club was a big hit with the kids with it's safe swimming, large floating swimming raft, water slide, free canoe use, free sun beds and umbrellas. Prices of drinks are a little higher but well worth it for the use of the facilities - and they bring everything to your subbed. :-)

We also liked the fantastic views from the balcony and especially from the upper terrace with its sunshade. The rooms are a good size and very well furnished. Absolutely no complaints at all.

We were well looked after and nothing was too much trouble.

Villa Samanyolu is highly recommended by us.

Wonderful place to stay

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed twice at Villa Samanyolu, both times we have loved the area and especially the villa, for a family of 4 it is more than spacious and has all the amenities required for a great time. The villa is immaculate and help is always on hand for any issues, there are resteraunts and a small shop close buy but clearly Kalkan is very close by, walking (if you like steep hills) or by taxis which are always ready to come. There is also the Kalkan beach club very close by with lots to do there also. I would highly recommend a stay at this location. Gareth and Jo.

Owner's Response: Thank you for the fantastic review. It's always a pleasure to have guests return to Villa Samanyolu. I keep the villa looking good and each year invest in new facilities so guests are never disappointed - 2016 included, new eGlass double glazing in the top bedroom; improved siting of the wardrobe making the Air Con unit more effective; new modern shower units throughout; modern replacement glass and aluminium railings to improve the views. Hope to see you again at Villa Samanyolu in the great area of Kisla in beautiful Kalkan.
