About the property

Villa in Kalkan, Turkey - Commanding Location In the Luxury LaVanta Resort

Villa Patricia was built three years ago to a very high standard by Mediterra in the highly regarded LaVanta resort. It offers comfortable and spacious accommodation that feels cool, contemporary and stylish. Bosch appliances and marble counter tops in the kitchen, cool stone floors throughout and good quality bathroom finishes are indicative of the quality of the villa and the attention to detail given to ensuring exceptional accommodation for our guests. The property has been furnished to a very high standard with imaginative use of fabric colours and original artwork. It enjoys a large well planted garden with views to the sea and there is masses of decking for sunbathing around the private swimming-pool. There are excellent views across Kalkan/Kalamar Bay. The villa is in a quiet location with immediate access to the 25 metre magnificent club pool, restaurant, bar and games room; it literally takes 1 minute to walk there from the front door of the villa.

About Robert Lankester

My wife and I are both teachers working in the independent sector. I am a Head Teacher, and my wife teaches drama and swimming. We have two children aged 23 and 29, one of whom is a teacher and the other a teaching assistant. We live in the countryside in Northamptonshire. We have a house in Wales and a villa in Turkey.

Robert Lankester purchased this villa in 2011

Why Robert Lankester chose Lycian & Turquoise Coast

In 2010 we rented a villa at LaVanta for a week and we all agreed that quite simply it was the best villa we had ever stayed in. So, when an identical villa was offered to us for purchase we couldn't resist. In addition we fell in love with the delights of Kalkan and couldn't imagine a more wonderful place to spend our summer holidays. The LaVanta development struck us as supremely stylish and the 25 metre pool was an immediate hit with the swimming fanatics in the family. The plans to open the restaurant and bar in 2011 were another attraction and we have not been disappointed. There is no better place to have a cool beer as the sun sets; the view is astonishing. It has everything you could possibly want and in addition it is quiet and highly selective - a well guarded secret!

What makes this villa unique

Villa Patricia is a wonderfully light villa and from all the bedrooms there are stunning views of Kalkan Bay and the surrounding Taurus Mountains. It is a great bonus to have a private pool but the proximity of the LaVanta 25 metre pool and the bar and restaurant is a special feature of the property. We use the big pool every day and nearly always nip up to the bar for a beer at 6.30pm or for a light lunch. The villa has a larger sun terrace than other similar properties and the larger decking area around the pool is a particular luxury allowing lots of space for deck chairs and other furniture. The large first floor balcony or the secluded seating area to the side of the villa are great places for evening drinks whilst enjoying the spectacular views and the sunsets. A game of backgammon whilst watching the sun set is a perfect end to the day.

Villa Patricia - Just Wonderful!

  • 5 of 5

This was our 7th family holiday to Kalkan (and 4th to La Vanta). Villa Patricia is one of a number of villas on the La Vanta complex that is 3-bedroomed and has a dedicated pool and garden area.

In short, this is an immaculate villa. It is ideally situated, being co-located to the main complex swimming pool and Papaya Cafe, and is well placed with its stunning views over the Kalamar Bay, looking onto Maus Island. The villa is well equipped and spacious. We favour this villa over others we have stayed in before due to the outside decking area around the pool - plenty of room and more than enough sun lounges for the entire family. Internally, it has everything a family needs to cater for a 2-week holiday. Unique to Villa Patricia, there is a set of table and chairs adjacent to the upper garden that provide some peace and quiet to read or have a glass of wine whilst watching the sun drop over the Mediterranean Sea. Occasionally, the juvenile tortoise makes an appearance in the upper garden! The new gas BBQ on the main patio is also a real bonus.

The main La Vanta pool is only a stone's throw away from Villa Patricia, and the Papaya Cafe (new this year) is great for pool-side drinks and snacks - all comparatively cheap! To really enjoy La Vanta, with its stunning views from its isolated position overlooking Kalkan, we recommend a hire car. The best (and cheapest) option is to hire from Dalaman Airport and self-drive, avoiding costly transfers. This will enable you to drive locally and to visit idyllic locations such as Saklakant Gorge, Zanthos Ruins and Kaputas Beach.

In summary, Villa Patrica is a top quality villa which we would highly recommend. Already it is at the top of our list to return to La Vanta in future years!
