Fantastic holiday in Villa Dora

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in Villa Dora for 3 weeks in July 2016. We've been to Turkey 4 times previously but this was our first visit to Kalkan and we absolutely loved it. The people, as all Turkish people are, were amazing. Ramazan the gardener came every day and was very helpful. The views form Villa Dora are outstanding and the pool area along with the outside seating area make for fantastic relaxation and family time. We were very sad to be coming home after an amazing three weeks. The Turkish coup happened while we were there and we would have never known about it if it hadn't been for the BBC website. Kalkan is beautiful and peaceful. We will be back without a doubt.

Beautiful Stay in Villa Dora

  • 5 of 5

Villa Dora was a home from home. Well equipped with stunning views over the town and harbour in Kalkan. Everything was provided. The pool and verandas were cleaned every day. We had the most relaxing holiday and would recommend Villa Dora to anyone.

Stay in Villa Dora

  • 5 of 5

The Villa was clean and well presented. The best feature though by far was the stunning view from the veranda; this was a lovely place to sitt and relax enjoying a canopy of beautiful bourgainvilleas overhead that sheltered you from the heat of the hot Turkish sun. The pool had the sun shining on it all day so was a very pleasant temperature for swimming. The villa was well equipped and provided many extras like large water cooler with water, beach bags, plasters, books and games etc. Great villa in a lovely location. We would certainly recommend this villa to friends and family.

Excellent stay

  • 5 of 5

Stayed 11 days in Villa Dora, overlooking to Kalkan. Very impressed its home-like decoration, fully functional kitchen and every bit was perfectly working. Despite very warm days, we had very limited dependency on air conditioning due to nice breeze from the sea every day. Enjoyed a lot the garden with fruit and olive trees.

Highly recommended to families with children.

Location

From the Owner

Mostly we enjoy the quiet and privacy of the outdoor life here with a great panoramic view over Kalkan Bay. Good place for relaxing, reading and contemplation. Love the natural beauty of Kalkan and its environs. Kaputas is our family's favourite beach in the summer and Patara in the winter. Many extraordinary archaeological sites to visit locally. Enjoy spectacular local walks (including Lycian Way) in winter and spring. Like to polish off the day with great food, washed down with a bottle or two of sarap or Effes from one of Kalkan's many excellent eateries.

Activity and Interests

Nearest Barpub : Samira Deluxe at 100 Metres Nearest Ferry : Mace (Kastellorizo) at 15 Kilometres Nearest Motorway : D400 at 200 Kilometres Nearest Restaurant : Samira Deluxe at 100 Kilometres Nearest Ski : Antalya at 45 Kilometres Car: not necessary

Coast/Beach:

The local town beach is 15 minutes by foot from Villa Dora. Kalkan's beach is a pebble beach, but Kalkan is better known for its beach clubs and proximity to the famous beaches of Patara and Kaputas cove. The beach clubs are private rock bathing platforms with intimate cafe/restaurants, just a 5 minute water taxi ride round the bay. The famous Patara beach 16km of white sand is only a 15 minute drive to the West and 10 minutes to the east is the beach Kaputas a cove of white sand.

Travel:

Dalaman is the nearest airport 1 hour 30 minutes by car. During the Winter months more regular flights fly to Antalya airport which is a 3 hour journey to Kalkan. Car hire is recommended, for sight seeing, although not essential since there are regular buses to the many places of interest.

Distances:

The Samira deluxe Hotel, 5 min walk from villa, has swimming pool, childrens pool, games, bar and restaurant which visitors to Villa Dora are welcome to use.

Kalkan town beach is 15 minutes walk from the villa.

A short drive or 40 minutes by dolmus (local minibus) will take you either east to the interesting seaside resort of Kas (formerly Greek Phellos, with amphitheatre) or alternatively west to the famous ruined Roman city of Patara, with its 17km long sandy beach and turtle nature reserve.

Further Details:

Kalkan is located on Turkey's south west coast, between the towns of Fethiye (87km to the west) and Kas (27km to the east). It belongs to the region of Antalya, which is also the name of its regional centre, located 200km away.

Kalkan town is nestled at the foot of the Taurus Mountains in a beautiful bay. The heart of Kalkan is its Old Town, a maze of small cobbled streets winding down to the harbour. The streets are lined with many old Greek and Turkish buildings covered with bougainvillea, occupied by small boutique shops and restaurants. Today the town is expanding out from this traditional centre, but the character of the Old Town and harbour remains unchanged.

Kalkan itself has a pebble beach, but is better known for its beach clubs and proximity to the famous beaches of Patara and Kaputas cove. The beach clubs are private rock bathing platforms with intimate cafe/restaurants, just a 5 minute water taxi ride round the bay. If lounging around the pool is more your style, then you will be pleased to know that Villa Dora has a large private pool.

The waters around Kalkan bay have a Blue Flag award for cleanliness and are ideal for all forms of water sports. Learn to dive at one of the diving schools or simply charter a small boat and its crew for the day. Like much of Turkey, Kalkan is surrounded by historical and geographical sites. Pinara, Patara, Xanthos, Thlos and Myra cover ancient settlements from the Byzantine, Roman and Lycian periods to name but a few.

The river gorge at Saklikent and famous beach at Olu Deniz are all less than an hour away. Above all Kalkan is most famous for its high quality but reasonably priced restaurants. With over 100 to choose from, there is something for everyone. Most popular are the rooftop terrace restaurants of the Old Town where you can enjoy the evening breeze and watch the sun set.

The Villa Dora is an ideal base for walking from October to May. Kalkan is next to the Lycian Way which according to the Sunday Times the Lycian is one of the ten most beautiful long distance hikes of the world.
