About the Owner
Tony went for a week's holiday in Kalkan - and bought an apartment because he loved the place so much. 6 months later he bought another - Olivium Apartment - because of its wonderful central location.
Tony has been renting Olivium Apartment since 2005 and several times holidaymakers have wanted to buy it but Tony can't bear to let it go !
Tony retired from banking in the City of London - fortunately long before bankers became so unpopular - and now spends as much time time as he can in Kalkan. He maintains the apartment himself and is very proud of his meticulous DIY.

Great location for a family
The apartment was great and Ahmet was very helpful. The location is great - no big hills and no taxis. We will be definitely be returning when we next visit Kalkan.

Kalkan made easy
The apartment is in a super position in Kalkan . This helped us to really make the most of our holiday as we were able to walk to everything we needed very easily, or hop in a taxi at the nearby rank if we had a longer journey to make, to meet friends.The apartment is well appointed with everything available for a comfortable stay .It was great to be able to see the sea from the balcony and we used the pool often , mornings and evenings, many times having sole use. Our beach club of choice was Indigo, at the side of the harbour, but there is so much choice in Kalkan that you can't possibly go wrong.
We are really hoping to repeat the holiday next year.
Fabulous apartment, fantastic location
We stayed for 2 weeks in August. The apartment was very spacious and well equipped with everything we needed. It was lovely to be able to open the front door and step straight into the pool. The pool was so quiet most times we had it to ourselves. The location is amazing. So near to the old town yet far enough away from any noise of the bars. No need for any taxis! The dolmus to Kaputus beach and Patara runs directly past the apartment, just flag it down! The apartment was spotless and cleaned once whilst we were there. We were met by Ahmet after being collected from the airport by one of his drivers, and he showed us around the apartment and was very helpful and friendly. We loved Kalkan. In fact we loved it so much we have just booked to stay again next year in Liz and Tony's apartment.
My husband and I had a great time. This was our first trip to Kalkan and will be returning again next year. Family joined us for our second week who also enjoyed their stay. This was their second visit to Kalkan and found the location of the Olivium apartments ideal. No taxis required. Apartment was very traditional and suited all our needs. Pool was great after having a walk back from the beach. Nice to chill out before getting ready to dine out at the nearby restaurants which was difficult to choose from as they were all very good. Everybody so friendly in the shops, restaurants,boat trips, and streets. Boat trips Yildiz 3 were very good with fesh food cooked on board which was amazing.
So thanks to Liz and John for everything. Not forgetting Ahmet and his driver for transfers.
Activity and Interests
The apartment lets quickly as the location is tremendous due to the easy access to the town’s restaurants, shops, entertainment and the harbour. Dance until 3am at the Moonlight Bar which is only 2 minutes walk away. The apartment is also a great base for exploring the locality. There is a regular handy dolmus (minibus) service from the town to local beaches. The famous Patara beach and ruins are about twenty minutes away boasting a stretch of sand extending some 17kms.
The nearest airport is Dalaman, 120km from Kalkan, transfer time around 90 minutes. Due to its central location, a car is not necessary for your stay at Olivium Apartment although if you wish to explore this fascinating area further hire cars are readily available within Kalkan itself. There are also many local tour companies who can arrange tours on your behalf. And plenty of buses.

Kalkan is on the South Mediterranean coast of Turkey known as the Turquoise Coast and situated in the beautiful and historic area of Lycia. Start your day with a lazy breakfast by the pool on the terrace or go to one of the restaurants along the marina to watch the boats moving in and out of the harbour. For your "day on the beach" Kalkan offers you a choice: A large public beach stretches along the front but you will probably discover your own favourite spot somewhere along the coast. The water will always be sparkling clean.
You may also choose a very original Kalkan way of spending the day: the beach clubs. These are platform beaches across the harbour reached by frequent shuttle boat service from the marina or by a free tax ride. They provide everything a holiday-maker can need or dream of, from a sophisticated tequila cocktail to, a delicious lunch or a sunbed and parasol. This formula is extremely popular among our visitors who will spend their holiday in one of these beach clubs. Every one has a favorite but all offer very good services. They are open all day long and even for dinner by candle light.
If your idea of a holiday is discovering a virgin sandy coast you may spend your day at Patara Beach - one of the most beautiful beaches in Europe. A frequent and efficient minibus service from the adjacent town square is very cheap. You will find basic restaurants for food and drinks as well as umbrellas and sunbeds. Although much smaller, the remarkable sandy beach of Kaputas, a few miles from Kalkan, is a wonder - do not miss it.
In addition Kalkan is in the heart of Lycia with its 3000 years of history. Walk in the steps of Alexander the Great at Xanthos or visit a nearby mountain village where life has not changed in over 100 years. Or just sit in an olive grove in the hills behind Kalkan and gaze on the calm blue waters of the Mediterranean - a view unchanged for thousands of years.
