About the Owner
I was born in Islamlar (near Elmali). I went to school in Kas and then Elmali, Studied French at university in Ankara and went on to become a French teacher for many years. In the summer holidays I ran a bed and breakfast in Patara as a hobby and several years later pursued my dream of building a hotel. I still run this small successful hotel together with my English wife, whom I met 20 years ago.
We both love the area and feel very privileged to live in such a beautiful place. I wanted to be able to offer self catering accommodation in this beautiful part of Turkey.Building is restricted in many areas along this coast line, but in Kalkan it was possible to find a lovely location and to follow this dream.
With advice and support from a local architect I designed and built the villas in Kalkan in 2002. The Villas are a comfortable "home from home", ideal for couples seeking a romantic break, for families or for a group of friends.
As we live locally we are always on hand to welcome and look after our guests, without being too intrusive. In the winter months we are able to carry out maintenance, look after the gardens and ensure that the properties are well looked after.
We also have a lot of farm land and so many of the ingredients in your welcome hamper are from our gardens!!
I am passionate about the local area, Its history, customs and culture and am more than happy to share my knowledge with our guests.
We look forward to welcoming you to this beautiful part of Turkey.

Kalkan is a picturesque harbour village situated on the Mediterranean coast of Turkey. It has become a desirable location for those in search of a relaxing sea side holiday with a little sophistication. Kalkan nestles snugly in the cliffs overlooking the bay, the steep cobbled streets and whitewashed bougainvillea covered houses leading down to the pretty harbour. In the evening Kalkan has a wonderful ambiance, when cafes and restaurants spill out onto the streets. There are an enormous variety of restaurants for such a small place, all offering fantastic quality food in charming locations. Many with roof terraces offering breath taking views, others down by the harbour where you can relax by the water. The winding cobbled streets are filled with colourful local shops selling carpets, local crafts, jewellery, leather and ceramics. Behind the main streets you can wander in the quieter backwater and admire the wooden balconied bougainvillea covered, old village houses. Kalkan is a wonderful base from which to explore this fascinating coastline. There are the beaches of Kaputas and Patara. The latter is still a nesting ground for Loggerhead turtles and so forms part of a protected area. But during the daytime you can enjoy this 16km beach lovers paradise! Then there are the fascinating archaeological sites of Patara, Pinara, Tlos, Myra, Xanthos and Letoon all on the doorstep. There are fabulous areas of outstanding natural beauty. The Gorge at Saklikent, a canoe trip down the river in the Nature reserve at Patara, Horse riding along the beach and through the forests, a 'gulet' cruise exploring the stunning coastline and giving you chance to swim in the turquoise, crystal clear waters, plus trips up into the mountains where you can experience village life that has not changed for centuries. Kalkan oozes charm and has a special ambiance all of it's own. Once you have visited, it is a place that you will want to return to again at sometime.
