Apartment in Kalkan, Mediterranean Region, Turkey - Wonderfully Tranquil Location Yet Only 10 Minute Downhill Walk To Kalkan Town And Blue Flag Beach
Absolutely breathtaking sea views from all rooms!

About the Owner
I live in East Sussex with my partner Mark, my daughter and our 2 cats. I now work in Eastbourne for a wholesale company but spent many years in TV advertising and interior design. Mark has run his own hair and beauty supplies business in Brighton for over 20 years. We first discovered the magic of Kalkan in 2007, purely by accident (funnily enough on a search on Owners Direct). We always said we would never visit the same place twice but Kalkan is just so charming and pretty that we totally fell in love with it and have been coming back ever since. We have since made friends with both locals and other families who own property here. Buying this apartment in 2011 has been an absolute 'no brainer'. If you visit Kalkan I can guarantee you will not be disappointed!
Guestbook comments from the owner
This was our first visit to Kalkan and we will certainly be returning. The apartment is perfect, the views are stunning and the town is magical, especially at night. Mark and Hayley (May 2012)
Our 3rd visit to the apartment - the improvements are fantastic. Hope all who follow have as great a holiday as we always have in this beautiful apartment in an idyllic spot. Tangie and Chris (June 2012)

Thank you for letting us stay in your fabulous apartment, we had a wonderful time, and as you would have expected have fallen completely in love with Kalkan. Sue & Pete (September 2012)

Patio Devon is an amazing property!!
Beautifully appointed, incredibly comfortable and amazing setting - patio Devon has one of the best locations in Kalkan. The views are incredible - waking daily to a clear view of snake & mouse island from the foot of our bed was an absolute treat. Lorraine was a dream to deal with and so helpful. The apt had everything we could possibly need and was perfect for a family of four with main bedroom upstairs with stunning terrace with sofa seating perfect anytime. Second twin bedroom off of main living area - air con was a god send - kitchen had everything as a few evenings we ate in so we could enjoy the sun disappearing behind the mountains and chill by pool or terrace. Pool perfect / incredible view and shade area and brollies much needed in August! Short walk (10 mins) to town. Very steep but taxi back 7Tl was best return. Market Thursday great. Turkish people everywhere so lovely and friendly. Super restaurants - never had a bad meal - faves: fenner cafe / belkins (love cushion terrace) Sade, waipano, Gironde, hunkar (great delivery service). Did beautiful boat trip with captain Osman (highly recommend) - fave beach clubs Yali and indigo. Beware of Kalkan beach club as area around slide very sharp and daughter badly cut toe (town chemist was a dream patching that up!). All in all an amazing holiday in a fabulous property. Sad to leave but We will be back. Julie and Ian.
This was our second visit to Kalkan but our first to Patio Devon. Kalkan was even more beautiful than last October (the fabulous weather helped with that) and the Apartment couldn't have been better. The morning cuppa on the rooftop terrace while the kids were still asleep was fantastic. The shared pool is beautiful and the view from it magical!! We will most definitely be back as have all fallen in love with the area! The steep walk down to dinner at night was quick and a taxi back up after a little vino was only a couple of pounds....bliss!!
Many thanks to Lorraine for being so helpful. The Sayers Family
Amazing duplex apartment
This is the second time we have stayed here at Patio Devon and hopefully won't be the last. Lorraine is very helpful and quick to respond to communication. The apartment is spotless with all the amenities that you require. Lorraine and Mark have made this apartment extra special with all the finishing touches they have added. The views are amazing and although there is a steep hill down to the Old town, it is only minutes away and worth it for the view. This time we went to a beach club and went on a boat trip to Kekova which was good value. There are so many lovely restaurants, but ones I would recommend are Wapiano, Zula, Kalamaki, Gourmet and Gironda. Thank you Lorraine, Mark and Devon for sharing your beautiful home.
Fantastic apartment with stunning views over the bay and lovely town of Kalkan. We made good use of both the pool (good size) and the roof terrace. The apartment maintained to a very high standard . Very clean and comfortable. The owner Lorraine was very efficient and made the booking process very easy. She sent loads of info about Kalkan and the surrounding area and even booked our airport transfers for us. We had a great week and would highly recommend this apartment.
Second visit and not the last
We are still sitting here on our sun beds at the moment but alas this is our last day in Kalkan but as said above it won't be our last visit.
Patio Devon again is and has been the best place we have ever stayed in and after this visit we are lucky enough to be coming back in September to this beautiful apartment that has everything you will ever need whilst on your holiday.
Again a big thank you to Lorraine & Mark for letting us stay in your wonderful home in Kalkan and for putting together so much information for us before our stay.
We have had a great time thank you and looking forward to our next visit.
Kind regards as always
Apartment was tastefully furnished and well equipped. Superb location with stunning views. Outside seating area to master bedroom was a lovely place to relax and chill. Pool area was exceptionally clean and outside areas were impeccably maintained.However on a more selfish note, as we had to vacate apartment at 12 and had a late flight, would have liked to of had shower and toilet facilities outside the apartment.
From the Owner
“We bought Patio Apartment 4 in October 2011 from the previous owners John and Clare after seeing it in the August 2011 and being completely blown away. We’ve stayed in various locations around Kalkan over the years but without doubt the apartment has the 'wow' factor and we would challenge you not to be bowled over by the spectacular views from the apartment across the bay, which are, in our opinion unsurpassed. John and Clare had great success in renting out the apartment when they owned it, so whilst we intend to use the apartment regularly ourselves each year we are delighted to share the experience. Kalkan has an enchanting ambiance that will slowly but surely seduce you into the Turkish way of life.”
Activity and Interests
Kalkan has a small blue flag pebble beach, suitable for all ages (15 minutes walk from the apartment) with cafes and facilities nearby including sun lounger hire. Several beach clubs in the Kalkan area offer water sports. Most clubs provide free taxi/water taxi transfers. Patara, a beautiful, 12km long sandy beach (home to endangered loggerhead turtles) is some 20 minutes away by local dolmus bus, taxi or guided tour. Kapatus Beach, between Kalkan and Kas is a 15 minute taxi drive away.
The closest airport to Kalkan is Dalaman. There are numerous flights from most UK airports including the London airports, Manchester, Aberdeen, Edinburgh and Glasgow. The transfer time from the airport is around 90 minutes. Taxis are approx £130 return for up to 3 people and £140 return for up to 8. Taxi transfers can be easily arranged for you via the highly reputable Club Lycia (based in the centre of the village).
Kas (25 mins) Fethiye (1 hour) - picturesque harbours/weekly markets. Trips not to miss – Kekova (Sunken City), Saklikent Gorge, Patara Beach. Archaeological sites to visit - Xanthos and Letoon. We highly recommend Club Lycia Travel in the town to organise trips, car hire, airport transfers. Boat trips leave the harbour daily. Also available: diving, horse riding, paragliding, canoeing up the Dalaman river. Also well worth a visit: Islamlar -renowned for its trout farms and rambling houses.
Kalkan is quite magical and widely regarded as one of the most sophisticated and picturesque coastal resorts in Turkey. It is renowned for its combination of wonderfully cosmopolitan and traditional restaurants - which now number in excess of 100! Enchanting little shops, open until late into the summer evenings and bars dotted along the pretty harbour-front and cobbled back streets will guarantee you a truly memorable stay. Kalkan is very proud of its distinctive Ottoman Greek architecture. In the evening when the town truly comes alive the cobbled back streets become the domain of the pedestrians and so are incredibly safe. The people are warm, friendly and helpful without being intrusive. Most of Kalkan’s restaurants are either situated on roof terraces or around the beautiful harbour allowing you to enjoy awesome night views as you delight in the excellent high standard of food served throughout. The extensive menus offer first class food at exceptional value. The town has several supermarkets, a doctors’ surgery, dentist, pharmacy and a small hospital. Several luxury hotels have spas where you can 'enjoy' a Turkish bath. There are several banks, cash machines and a post office. Currency is also offered at very competitive exchange rates in various shops in town. The currency is the Turkish Lira but pounds sterling are readily accepted. Taxis from the airport are usually paid for in pounds. There is a weekly local market. You can find almost anything in Kalkan, from carpets to Turkish Delight and the traditional blue-coloured glass 'evil eye' for warding off evil spirits. Gold and silver jewellery is a great buy as it is sold by its weight. Intricately-decorated ceramics, hand-blown glass, hand-carved Meerschaum pipes, backgammon sets inlaid with mother-of-pearl, high quality leather goods (for excellent prices), beautiful Turkish kilims (hand-woven rugs) and carpets (traditional knotted rugs are just some of the items on offer.
