House in Uzumlu, Nr Kalkan, Mediterranean Region, Turkey - secluded rural setting but close to amenities
The property sits in its own grounds of 4,500sq.m with many olive, lemon, orange and pomegranate trees. Access is from the village road by a shared track of some 300m. Accommodation. First floor: 3 large bedrooms. Master bed with balcony. Family bathroom. Ground floor: Large sitting and dining room kitchen WC and shower. Outside: private pool. shaded garden, garden seating area and full size BBQ. Parking for several cars. Üzümlü is a small friendly village with basic amenities of small shops, cafe, restaurant and of course a mens barbers. Kalkan is near with all amenities: bank, supermarket, petrol, shops generally etc. Islamlar is smaller than Üzümlü high up the mountain so a few degrees cooler. With mountain water all year around the locals have developed trout farm restaurants where fresh grilled trout is favourite with traditional starters or you can opt for chicken/lamb if fish is not for you - all really excellent value.

About the Owner
My wife and I fell in love with this part of Turkey on our first visit! The scenery, the people, the food and wow the weather. We have been coming since 2004 and never fail to find something or someone new.
Guestbook comments from the owner
Villa Drew is a really great house, spacious and well equipped. The pool was a welcome luxury in the hot sunny weather we had in May/June. The garden is great for all meals al fresco if you wish ! There is plenty of shade beneath the large tree if you get too hot !! The neighbours are friendly and also the local village people. The owners have got it spot-on we think. We hope you enjoy it as much as we did. We would definitely go again.

Our first reaction to getting into your house was simply 'wow'. It is absolutely fantastic and we were also taken aback at the amount of space inside, as well as around the house itself. The location is also fantastic and the sunsets over Patara were greatly appreciated.

Thank you so much for lending us your beautiful house in Üzümlü. We had a wonderful week such a lovely spot and to have a gorgeous cool old stone house! Lot of long lunches in the garden under that wonderful tree.

We stayed at the Stone House for the second week of a fortnight's holiday in Turkey. The house is lovely and the views are amazing. It is off the beaten-track so very peaceful but only a short drive to Kalkan and the wonderful beach at Patara. The house is comfortably furnished and has all amenities. The pool was a really good size and very clean. The restaurants in Islamlar are definitely worth a visit. We would love to go back some day.
From the Owner
“We believe the location is fantastic. It offers peace, tranquillity and seclusion. You really are off the beaten track - you will experience that driving up the track to our house! This is a little bit of rural Turkey. Our neighbours and all the villagers are so friendly it is a pleasure to be amongst them. This is our family holiday home”
Activity and Interests
Patara consists of 12km of golden sandy beach, home to turtles and therefore protected. The area is a national park with extensive Lycian and Roman ruins of amphitheatre, temples, arches and avenues.
Kaputas is a small cove shaped sandy beach accessed by steps lapped by a wonderfully turquoise sea.
Kas is the next town along the coast from Kalkan. A pleasant drive along the coast with stunning views along the way. Many shops, bars and restaurants with a large harbour and marina.
The house is approximately 100km from Dalaman Airport some 1½ to 2 hours travel time. Due to our location a car is essential. We can arrange transfer to and from the airport and local car hire with vehicle brought to the house for you.
Approx 1km to Üzümlü village centre.
Many local markets on differing days at Akbel, Kalkan, Kinik and Kas: details at the house.
Kalkan only a short drive away is full of excellent bars and restaurants; you can eat somewhere different every night. They range from simple café type places to high end fine dining. It is a pretty town with narrow cobbled streets leading down to a bustling harbour. The harbour front is home to some of the finest restaurants but there are also bars where a refreshing cool drink or snacks can be had.
Saklikent is a natural gorge that can be accessed for a few liras and makes a pleasant walk up the river bed. The area has slow waterways with restaurants in abundance over the water and the opportunity to hire a rubber ring and drift down with the flow.

From the Owner
“Sit out on the patio at night with a cold drink looking up to the clear sky and see the stars like you have never seen before. No unnatural sounds just the country ticking over and very quietly too! Take a dip in the pool during the hot day and then sip a beer or iced drink under the shade of the large Mulberry tree.”
