About the Owner
We had been going to Kalkan annually, and sometimes twice a year for about 12 years, when we decided finally to buy. We both love eating out, swimming in the sea, hiring a car and getting up into the hills and the real Turkey in the off season. We love buying fresh produce from the market and coming home with a bag of figs for £1 that would have cost £10 at home. I love shopping, and have just bought blue and white muslin airy curtains for the apartment which look wonderful.
Our married children love it come back each year. We love having somewhere to ask our friends out to join us, and had four couples out last year which was such fun. One of them is at present themselves trying to buy a villa nearby.
Guestbook comments from the owner
Just a quick email to say how much we enjoyed our stay at your lovely apartment. The terrace meals, views & pool were all fantastic. We're glad we found your place amongst all the others!
Julie & Tobi
Your apartment was so comfortable and well equipped, a real ome from home, in a stunning location. We'll be in touch with you again in the future, to spend some more time at Kaplumbaga 3. Many many thanks again.

Your apartment was everything you said it was and more. Wherever we were during the day we tore back each evening to sit, drink in hand, and watch the amazing sunsets. We WILL be back.

From the Owner
“As soon as we saw this apartment we knew it was for us. The view is amazing, in an area we really liked. We just can't get enough of Kalkan, we know many of the local people, restaurant owners, shop owners. They are the salt of the earth, so friendly and helpful, and with a lovely sense of humour. As soon as we get to Dalaman we relax. We usually hire a car from the airport nowadays, and stop off on our way to have a wonderful pancake which is a local delicacy. Then it's longing for the moment when we round a headland and see Kalkan, usually in the evening when it's twinkling lights are on. Our apartment is quiet, with breathtaking views, but only minutes away from town and its many shops and restaurants, and directly above the tiny acclaimed boutique Villa Mahal. Just heaven.”
Activity and Interests
The nearest sea swimming is about five minutes walk away at Villa Mahal Beach Club. The sea is clean, blue and divine with good snorkelling or scuba diving. Most swimming is done from rocky platforms with high quality sun beds and umbrellas, but there is beach in Kalkan itself. There are many beach clubs to visit, all with restaurants and bars.
Dalaman is the nearest airport, about an hour and a half away, but the scenery you pass through is superb. Transfer is easy, either private or shared, or you can hire a car there. The roads are wide, wonderful and almost deserted.
We are in the middle of many important archaeological sites, Tlos, Xanthos, Letoon, Kas is about half an hour away, Patara about 15 minutes. The mountain villages are about fifteen minutes away. Fethiye is about an hour, Gocek a little more. Olu Deniz is near Fethiye.
There is a small supermarket a 5 minute walk away which sells everything, and one or two local restaurants, including the wonderful Villa Mahal for a special evening. Kalkan, a walk, short boat trip, or bus ride is full of everything you would need, banks, market, supermarkets and the most wonderful shopping and restaurants you could believe.

From the Owner
“What we love about our apartment is how easy it is to swim in the sea. Although we have a lovely pool, we are both mad about the freedom of the sea, and often go down for a swim before breakfast, then come back to fresh bread, wonderful jams, yogurts, local honey and cheese. Just perfect. We are often the only ones in our apartment block as they are all owned by English owners and not all are let. We also love birdwatching, and drive up sometimes into the mountains to our nearest village, which is as if time stood still, and we watch the goats brought back from their grazing with the goatherds and the amazing unusual birds. There are many archaeological sites nearby, coastal and mountain roads. Each village has market day, fresh cheap fruit, veg, cheese, spices, towels, leather, buzzy.”
