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.
