About Lesley Skotzen

Hi, we are Lesley and Julian Skotzen, we live near Beaminster in Dorset with our dogs, cats, horses and ponies. We have 3 grown up daughters and have been coming to Kalkan for holidays since 2001 and have always had a fabulous time.

Lesley Skotzen purchased this villa in 2010

Why Lesley Skotzen chose Kalkan

My parents discovered Kalkan in 2001 on a day trip from Fethiye. Kalkan is the most idyllic setting being an old fishing village with many properties having conservation orders, it benefits from the small harbour which always adds interest and it is ideally located between Patara beach and Kas with the backdrop of the Taurus mountains behind, there is always plenty to do or see - the road from Kalkan to Kas is stunning, take in some ruins, cool down at Saklikent or just relax and enjoy the sun. Kalkan town has plenty of small boutiques, jewellery shops etc. also a great choice of restaurants - there's nothing better than eating dinner under the stars with the moonlight reflecting on the still waters of the bay - it really is a romantic destination. We love it!

What makes this villa unique

We have been looking at villas in Kalkan for several years and we bought Villa Kuyu because it ticked all the boxes. It is in a peaceful location with the most wonderful views over the bay and the islands, the sun is on the terrace from morning to late evening. The terrace is stunning with a 10 meter horizon pool, built-in BBQ, pergola, seating and outside lighting. There is also a garden with lemon trees and banana plant and original well etc.. Inside the villa is light and airy with plenty of room to spread out and again the living rooms and bedrooms all have fabulous sea views. There is also the added advantage of a garage which is useful in very hot weather.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Villa Kuyu is fabulous - large, bright & airy with very modern furnishing & very well equipped. The pool, terraces & garden are tended daily keeping it all immaculate. The bonus is the large pool & terrace with dining area under the pergola a fabulous place to sit and look at the stunning views over Kalkan Bay. Osii the manager is fabulous & deals with any questions and queries in a speedy, professional manner.

We thoroughly recommend Villa Kuyu, we had 5 teenagers with us, they loved the pool and villa

Thank you

The Cully's July 2011

Thank you J & L for sharing your villa with us.

It was a pleasant surprise to find that the villa was everything you specified & more. The superb furnishings & high quality interior made it a very special place, you have thought of everything down to the last detail, the outside seating areas & pool are also top quality. One could not fault the position of the villa for its uninterrupted view of Kalkan & the sea.

Perfect holiday

  • 5 of 5

Villa Kuyu was absolutely perfect. We have stayed in a Villa in Kalkan before and I have to say it was knowhere near as nice but a similar price.

We wanted something walking distance to the town but still with a nice view, a private pool and a BBQ. This place ticket all of those boxes and more.

The living area is spacious and well kept.

The kitchen is clean and has everything you could need.

Bedrooms are perfect with reasonably comfy beds (I always find villa and rentals abroad have fairly firm beds).

Pool is lovely with plenty of sun beds and bean bags for relaxing.

The BBQ, dining and seating area is shaded which is lovely especially when the weather is so hot!

Only two of us were staying here but I would happily come back and share this place with another 4-6 people. There is plenty of room.

Lesley was extremely helpful providing directions to the villa which we found easily even though we were driving a rental care from the airport in the dark. The location is great, although we found it use film to have a car when dong food shopping it certainly isn't essential. We walked to town every evening but got a taxi back.

Also I suggest taking Lesley's advice on restaurants as we had the two best meals of our trip on her recommendation.

We will certainly be recommending to friends and family.

fantastic family villa with stunning views

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I and 3 children aged between 13 and 7 have just arrived back from a 2 week stay in Villa Kuyu and it was fantastic. Lesley made the whole booking procedure very easy and gave brilliant recommendations on every bit of holiday information you may require. We used Abi Travel for transfers who also manage the villa in Kalkan and they were faultless. The villa itself is superb and has been furnished to a very high standard. The pool terrace is huge there is plenty of shade but for sun lovers you wake upto sun streaming across the pool and you can still be sitting on a sun longer at 6.40 in the evening. We didn't hire a car but managed to walk into Kalkan most evenings with the children it took about 15 minutes and taxied back. Kalkan is gorgeous with about 200 restaurants and the food is fab. Read the comment book in the villa for recommendations. We also visited Kalkan Beachclub which the kids loved and I would recommend to families, the others are more for couples. We hope to return very soon.

the holiday that has it all

  • 5 of 5

This villa is brilliant. very spacious and comfortable. it was very tranquil but easy to get to the local bakers (short walk) and buy fresh breads, honey and local produce and extremely cheap prices. Villa Kuyu has it all, luxury pool, great terrace for meals, and well equipped. the nearby restaurants - short drive away are fab, the Town is very pretty and boat trip that we had was just the best (muddy boat). the people in the shops do not hassle you, they are so friendly and helpful without being pushy. great for young, old and families. I would certainly recommend this villa to family and friends.

A beautiful villa

  • 5 of 5

The villa was beautiful, spacious, clean and modern with ample living space and large bedrooms and bathrooms. The patio area was large and the infinity pool was fantastic. The villa has stunning views of the town of Kalkan and hills and sea in the distance. Certainly made for a relaxing and comfortable stay.

The owner provided great customer service from start to finish and recommended places to visit, eat and a contact if we needed one during our stay.

We found the local town Kalkan very welcoming, pretty and found there were a number of wonderful restaurants to eat in. The food was delicious and fresh everywhere we ate.

We particularly enjoyed a boat trip from Kalkan harbour taking us to local islands and sights, and a visit to a gorge nearby.

We would definitely recommend this to both friends and family as there was something for everyone here.

Thanks for a great holiday.

You will not be disappointed with Villa Kuyu-it is a well appointed spotless and in a great location. This is our second visit to Kalkan this villa met all our needs. The terrace is huge and met all our demands for shade , sun and water. The arrangements for booking and on arrival could not have been easier and the local agent made every effort to see all our needs were met. A fantastic holiday and we would not hesitate to recommend both Kalkan and this lovely villa.

Hot, Beautiful, Relaxing

  • 5 of 5

I have been away a number of times using Owners Direct and this was by far the best property I have been to. Its exactly as described and the location is peaceful and relaxing. The walk down the steep hill into town is easy, and the taxi back each time was around £4. The villa is perfect for 6 (as we did) and the facilities are ideal. The infinity pool is clean and the view stunning. Lots of places to shade from the sun. Kalkan is magical and every restaurant lovely. The people are lovely and the highlight was a moonlight boat trip which all of us thought was amazing. We want to come again.... In fact none of us wanted to come home!
