About the Owner

We first visited Kalkan in October 2009 and reacted as many people do... we fell in love with the place and ended up taking what all our friends described as hugh risk. We bought a piece of land and built our own villa! A decision that we have never regretted.

We are both former PE teachers who now run our own businesses in a small town in East Lothian, called North Berwick. It is similar to Kalkan in many ways, but obviously not with regard to the temperatures!!

We have 4 children aged between 29 and 10, and found that Kalkan had something for us all.

This was our first visit to Kalkan and for me the first time to Turkey, always a bit wary when you see pictures and descriptions of property's as they can be some what exaggerated, however WOW!! OH MY GOD!

What a wonderful wonderful introduction to Kalkan. Villa Yayla has a commanding position on the hillside looking out to sea and down onto the town and harbour, the views are out of this world, all bedrooms have sea views, 4 bedrooms en suite, plenty of room for family and friends without being on top of each other, private swimming pool, BBQ, games room, and fantastic covered decked area to retire to from when the sun gets too much, villa is immaculate with all the mod cons you would expect at home, the owner Dougie has put a lot of thought into the home comforts and extras like water cooler, WiFi, mobile phone etc and kindly supplied lots of information regarding airport transfers, restaurants sight seeing, taxis etc etc

We were totally blown away with this 5 star property, the Kalkan people and the area in general, we are already thinking about our next visit!!

Our 3rd trip to paradise

  • 5 of 5

As the title suggests this was our 3rd trip to Villa Yayla in Kalkan. As the taxi comes round the hilltop bend the whole family shouts " we are home "

Thanks to Dougie the Villa is everything we need. Homely but spacious, laid back, easy to maintain, everything where it is supposed to be. The views over the harbour and the bay are to die for, first thing you see in the morning and if you are lucky and still soberish , the last you see of a night time. We have photos galore all over our English home of Kalkan, the villa and the surrounding area.

We defy anyone to come here for a holiday and to complain about anything on their return.

I could wax lyrical about this for pages and pages, go and find out for yourselves. I promise you will not be disappointed.

Location, Location, Location!

  • 5 of 5

A fabulous villa situated in a stunning location! The sea views from every window was breath-taking and an absolute joy to wake up to every morning. The villa had everything we needed for a family of 8 (4 adults and 4 teenagers) and plenty of space to relax and unwind. Lazy days by the pool and evenings spent in the beautiful old town or a BBQ at the villa. Ramazan was always readily available to help, even ordering pizza delivery to the villa and the little touches supplied by the owner Dougie were invaluable (water cooler, local mobile and Wi-Fi). The boys loved the pool and ping pong table, and there was enough room and shade around the pool for the girls to relax and sunbathe. We have been to Turkey many times but never to Kalkan and it was a lovely surprise. Very friendly, not to garish, with lots of wonderful bars, restaurants and shops to enjoy. The teenagers loved the beach clubs and we hired jet skis a couple of times. We also had a couple of trips on Moby Dick organised by Ramazan which was out of this world. Dougie was very friendly, quick to reply to emails, organised everything for us in advance and couldn't have been more helpful. Had a wonderful time and would recommend highly the villa and resort.

Fantastic Villa in Fabulous Setting

  • 5 of 5

Just returned from our 3rd visit to Villa Yayla, first time with family and Grand Parents, secondly with family and their partners and this time with friends.

The villa inside, outdoor terrace and pool are all immaculately clean. The accommodation of 4 ensuite rooms (plus a small bedroom on the top floor) all with balconies overlooking the outstanding view over Kalkan Harbour, make for very comfortable living with plenty of space for everyone to have a little quiet time if required.

The setting and view overlooking Kalkan Bay and Harbour is the best we have ever seen. The owner has provided so many helpful touches. There is a WIFI dongle and a local mobile phone for calling taxis etc. there is also a water dispenser - a godsend in the hotter months.

It is a relatively easy 15 walk down into town, return is a bit more daunting but the taxis take minutes and are inexpensive. A taxi drivers's number (Mehmet) is already in the phone. He is great and knows where the villa is.

Love this place and will be back soon.

Family break

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here for the first time after a friend recommended it to us, and we were absolutely delighted with the villa!

It was clean, spacious and very well equipped, with some lovely extra touches like the mineral water dispenser and the local mobile to use during the stay.

We had plenty of space for the whole group to relax and have a quiet time when needed, and there is no shortage of things to do within easy reach of the villa.

Although we did have a hire car, we could often manage with local taxis and even some walking!

A great villa!

Excellent Family Holiday

  • 5 of 5

Our party consisted of grandparents, parents and two young children, the layout and facilities of Villa Yayla was perfect for us to enjoy family time but also to have our own space too. The pool was a big hit with the children, the views are fabulous and the care and attention to making our holiday relaxing and stress free was excellent, Dougie, the owner is a delight to deal with and nothing is too much trouble. Our flight home was late evening but we were offered the ground floor and pool area to use until our transfer to a Dalaman arrived at 5.30pm which was very much appreciated. We all love Kalkan and although the uphill walk from the town is challenging with two small children, the view compensates and the taxis are plentiful, quick and reasonably priced, on most days we walked down to the town, about 15 minutes, it's just best to go early in the morning before it gets too hot. Mehmet (taxi driver) took us to Patara Beach and also collected us early evening for 100 Turkish Lira, about £30 for all six of us, definitely worth a visit. Thoroughly recommend Kalkan and Villa Yayla, thank you, we had a great holiday.

From the Owner

Visited Kalkan in October 2009 with our 3 children and fell in love with it. So much so that we bought land and built our beautiful villa. The people in Turkey are special.They are kind, polite and look after you so well. I felt at home here something I have never felt before when on holiday in other destinations.

Activity and Interests


There is a pebble beach in Kalkan 15 mins walk from the villa and sandy beaches 20 min drive away. Patara beach (20mins by car or taxi) is a beautiful beach, 17km in length.


Dalaman 1 hour 40 min. Taxi transfer to Kalkan is advised and you can hire a car there if you wish. Owners can arrange for transfer from the airport to Kalkan - depending on numbers travelling, this can cost between £50 and £75 each way.

Antalya airport is about 2 hours 45mins away.

Further Details:

Kalkan is a beautiful unspoilt Mediterranean village resort and fishing town on the beautiful Turquoise Coast of Turkey. As there is the absence of mass tourism it remains a charming, idyllic retreat. Kalkan is perfect for those looking for a relaxing, stress free holiday. There is a lot to do during the day and nightlife is fun, but laid-back. You won't find noisy, wild nightlife here, like in some other coastal resorts.

Kalkan curls snugly around a historic harbour sheltered at the foot of the towering Taurus Mountains.  The town overlooks a beautiful bay with narrow streets twisting down to the harbour, lined with old whitewashed villas with shuttered windows situated alongside small local specialty shops and restaurants in historic buildings.  It is a very special place with a unique atmosphere. 

Good dining has always been the way of life in Kalkan and continues today.  In fact, Kalkan is said to have the highest number of restaurants and bars per inhabitant or square meter on the Turkish coast (well over 100 of them!).  Additionally, Kalkan is especially renowned in Turkey for its numerous roof terrace restaurants and bars which offer a wonderful view of the town, sea and stars. 

Kalkan has many fine qualities, but without a doubt, it is the people of Kalkan who make the town extra special.  The people of Kalkan warmly welcome you, and you may at first be surprised by the universal friendliness within the town.  This, along with warm Turkish hospitality is the basis of life here and the people of Kalkan sincerely enjoy getting to know their guests. You won't be hassled while you are a guest of Kalkan - the town is hassle-free and is proud to be so.
