Spacious villa in magnificent location
About the Owner
After holidaying in Turkey for many years we have decided to build a villa for friends and family to enjoy in what we think is the most beautiful and unspolit part of Turkey in a wonderful site. We have put a lot of effort into the villa for groups to stay and enjoy and we like it very much. We are confident you would too.
Guestbook comments from the owner
I just wanted to drop you a line to let you know what a lovely holiday we had at Villa Panorama. We have stayed in quite a few villas over the years in various countries, and we all agreed that yours is the best one we have stayed in. The layout is perfect for a group like ours and stepping out onto the balcony in the morning was such a pleasure with the views and the peace.

For all the villas we been to for the last ten years Panorama is the best one. You have built a perfect place in the sun. We all settled in so quickly due to the quality and the well designed layout. Also being high up in the mountain the breeze is really welcoming in the Turkey summer heat.
Chau family August 2011
Just arrived back from Villa Panorama. Had a wonderful time. Your villa is fantastic, well designed, built and very functional for any family that needs space or want to be together. Kalkan is great and the roof top restaurants were excellent. DeVilliers family July10

Spacious villa in magnificent location
Third visit to this villa. Never fails to impress with the space, location,view and equipment. Pool and outside area outstanding with enough welcoming sun beds. Soft tiled terrace is delight to walk over. Bedrooms and bathrooms all work well. Comfortable living room although not used much due to usual sunshine. Always sad to leave this villa and will try to return next year. Local couple who look after the villa are a delight and even produced a delicious carrot cake for us to enjoy. Owner very helpful.
Beautiful villa, stunning view, excellent location
This is a beautiful villa, every bit as good as it looks on the site. Set in a quiet location with great views across the valley, the sunsets are spectacular whether you are in the pool, on a lounger, in the jacuzzi or sitting outside on the balcony. A ten minute drive takes you into Kalkan, a lovely town with plenty of shops, bars and restaurants to suit all tastes. The Aubergine is a favourite of ours but you are spoilt for choice if high quality food is what you are after.
The villa itself has large bedrooms, all en-suite. A huge sitting room and well equipped kitchen. There is a large patio with a built in BBQ, a lovely infinity pool which is heated, a jacuzzi and everything is well maintained and well stocked.
We have been several times to this villa. It is the best we have ever stayed in with a location that is second to none. It is well worth the cost and is fantastic for a large family or group of friends.
Villa-Panarama is Simply Beautiful
Thank you Pat, Villa-Panarama simply took my breath away. The setting is authentic and idyllic and the villa is presented beautifully in every way. The inside is furnished with lots of home comforts that you don't really expect and the outside is just stunning. Evenings on the terrace watching the sun go down or sitting in the jacuzzi was such a relaxing treat. The village offers several authentic restaurants and the local food and people are a delight. The cooks herb garden was a really nice personal touch. My friends and I enjoyed every aspect of the villa, the scenery, the village and the area it was such a wonderful experience that I would definitely recommend and definitely will to return.

Such a lovely holiday
Thanks for a brilliant holiday Pat.
What a place! Comfortable and well-designed inside and out. Well equipped in all areas, a great pool and jacuzzi, relaxing BBQ/dining terrace . . . wonderful!
The setting of this luxury villa is quite unique, a beautiful hillside location looking right out to sea. Extremely private and not overlooked, yet within walking distance of village restaurant (great food and so cheap) and charming little shop. The wildlife as really interesting, so many beautiful birds. Easy walks - on my last day I sat watching frogs swimming, spotted a red squirrel and helped a tortoise across the road!
I love how the early morning sunshine creeps its way across the hillside to the pool; evening sunsets are unbelievable - viewed from the jacuzzi, or better still from the bedroom terrace with an ice-cold G&T!
I'm already looking forward to a return visit. Such a lovely holiday.
Brilliant Villa in a stunning location
We enjoyed a very welcome return to Villa Panorama. As can be seen in other reviews, the villa is large, well equipped, beautifully furnished and easily able to cope with a large number of visitors. The villa has a lovely pool and separate jacuzzi and a huge patio for those who simply want to relax and take in the sun. There is a large outside dining area with a built in BBQ, fridge and sink. All in all a fabulous place to spend a holiday. There has been more development since we last came, but nothing major and it is not at all intrusive. The pool area is not overlooked and the stunning views looking out from the villa remain unaltered. We look forward to visiting again and would highly recommend this villa to others.
We had a fantastic holiday staying at Villa Panorama. It is a beautiful villa in a pretty perfect location. We loved the pool, jacuzzi and outdoor space and fabulous views. The villa was spacious with everything we could possibly want. The welcome pack upon arrival was also a very nice touch. Any minor difficulties we encountered were dealt with very quickly and to our satisfaction. The villas nearby mentioned in a previous review in no way impacted on the privacy of the villa. It was lovely to wake up every morning and walk out onto the beautiful large balcony to be greeted by the stunning views. There are several great restaurants nearby also with fabulous views. It was really hard to leave the villa we loved it so much and would definitely stay there again without hesitation. Thank you so much Pat for such a fantastic holiday in a very special place.
From the Owner
“We think Kalkan is one of the unspoilt jewels of the Turquoise coast. Islamlar is a traditional village high in the mountain but only 10 minutes drive from Kalkan. It is south facing and gets the sun all day but has a fresher climate away from the high summer humidity of the coast. It is a a place of vines and olive groves with abundant running water. The villa is not over-looked, has no near neighbours and is very peaceful.”

The idyllic town of Kalkan on Turkey's dramatic Lycian coastline nestles in the Taurus Mountains above a small, picturesque harbour. Its enchanting narrow streets lined with small shops, local restaurants and listed whitewashed houses with shuttered windows and carved timber balconies tumbling with bougainvillea, twist down to an ancient harbour. From here, overlooked by a tiny white mosque, the fish are brought ashore in the morning and the wooden gullets sail out on their day trips around the bays and outlying islands.
The climate in Turkey is similar to southern California, and the sea is the colour of turquoise. Whether you want to relax by your own pool or on sun-drenched beaches, visit ancient sites, shop at bargain prices for real gold jewellery or fake designer labels and the freshest fruit and veg you have ever tasted from the local markets, there is something here for everyone.
For food lovers, Kalkan offers some of the best food in Turkey, either from its traditional locantas, the harbour-front restaurants, or on the romantic roof terraces for which Kalkan is famous. Or stroll to the trout restaurants of Islamlar, where the trout pools are fed by the clear mountain springs.
Kalkan is a friendly, picture-postcard pretty, town that despite its increasing popularity and sophistication has retained its charm. No wonder so many holiday makers return to Kalkan every year.
