About Charles Secrett

We live in England and have enjoyed holidaying in Kalkan since 2004, buying Villa Marcelli in 2005. For us it is the perfect holiday destination and is particularly loved by our four adult children who regularly take their own groups to the villa.

We purchased Villa Marcelli because it is considerably more spacious than most in the area and has a good balance of sun and shade depending on your preference. You will find it is very well equipped and help is always on hand should you require.

Kalkan is unique, and we are happy to tell you all about it and help you plan your holiday. If it's possible we always like to meet up with visitors to Villa Marcelli so that we can pass on the benefits of our experience.

A fantastic villa in a beautiful location.

  • 5 of 5

If you are looking for a spacious villa, extremely well equipped, with amazing views, then Villa Marcelli is definitely for you. Beautifully maintained with a private pool, perfectly cared for and a stunning roof terrace with a BBQ and full kitchen facilities this is an ideal holiday accommodation for a group of people.

I highly recommend this villa, the Owners are very helpful, doing their utmost to ensure you have the prefect holiday. I will certainly be returning again and again for a fun packed holiday with all the comfort one could wish for.

Wow stunning!! What a treat, super pool

  • 5 of 5

This is the second time we had managed to stay at this fabulous villa in Kalkan. It is well positioned, a 10 minutes walk away from the harbour and has breathtaking views over Kalkan bay. It had everything we needed including a roof terrace with BBQ, lounge seating, fridge etc that we took full advantage of during our stay. Maintained by an English speaking local, who is always on hand if required delivering fresh bread (yummy!) every morning. We will definitely be going back.

Amazing Villa!!!

  • 5 of 5

Villa Marcelli has everything you could ever ask for from a holiday. The villa is very well equipped and maintained. The views are amazing, especially from the roof terrace looking out over the bay. We enjoyed every minute of our time in the villa and we would recommend to anyone visiting Kalkan.

Thank you to the owners for allowing us use of the villa.

Fabulous spacious villa

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our time at Villa Marcelli and the owners made sure we were well catered for via Ramazan who took great care of us during our stay making sure the pool and gardens looked gorgeous every day and even delivering fresh bread and water! I would thoroughly recommend Villa Marcelli for either a family holiday or relaxing getaway with friends.

Superb Villa with amazing views

  • 5 of 5

Villa Marcelli is just gorgeous, its more than a home from home because it is equipped with more than we have at home!

It is spacious and spotless with views to die from every floor but especially from the most amazing top terrace, with a built in BBQ that any top chef would be proud of.

It's about a 15 minute stroll into the centre of town. The villa is at the top of a steep hill but for those who don't want to get fit while on holiday taxis are absolutely everywhere and very reasonable.

Ramazon is there every morning to make sure the pool is crystal clear and to organise anything that you may need from water to boat trips. His English is excellent and his wife even baked us a cake.

The rooms are large and airy with lots of space. We were a party of 8 but on the rare time someone needed to have a quiet moment there was always places to sit quietly, especially as every room has one or 2 balconies with fantastic views.

I cannot recommend villa Marcelli enough.

A large beautiful modern villa in Kalkan

  • 5 of 5

We all loved our stay in the stunning Villa. We were a party of 9 with 2 families (4 adults and 5 children ages 3-11) . The Villa was exceptionally well maintained and equipped and provided more than enough space for our 2 families. The views from the Roof Terrace at the top of the Villa were just beautiful and provided a haven for the adults at night overlooking the bay with a glass of wine and a pack of cards!

Ramazan the maintenance man took good care of our needs for booking trips and providing water and the local resort hotel was 200 yards away and an easy place to ring for a taxi or have an easy lunch or supper. The market on Thursdays was only a 5 minute walk away and the main town was a 10 minute walk away or 2 minutes in a taxi. There are a wealth or local beach clubs to choose from should you wish some time away from the pool at the villa.

We were all very grateful to Charles and Nicola for providing such a stunning Villa and hope to return to Villa Marcelli some day.

Activity and Interests

Nearest Beach : Kalkan at 0.8 Kilometres Car: not necessary


Kalkan beach ten minute walk, (3 minute drive), but is stony. The two sandy beaches are stunning but require a car to reach them, one 5km, the other 10km. There are six beach clubs in Kalkan, providing collection, sunbeds and umbrellas, food and refreshments and selections of watersports and activities.


The nearest airport is Dalaman and has a transfer time of 1hr 30min approx. Transfers can be arranged and is recommended for 1st time visitors. Car hire is generally not necessary but can be arranged at short notice if required.


The towns of Kas (25km)and Fethyre (40km) are both interesting, the ruins of Patara and Xanthos are within easy reach (car or Dolmus bus), the waterfalls of Saklikent are popular.

Further Details:

The small harbour town of Kalkan has over two hundred restaurants, many offering balmy rooftop tables overlooking the bay and all offering a fine selection of turkish cuisine. The food suits the english palate and is based on exceptionally fresh ingredients. If "eating in" is your thing, there is a good array of food shops offering fruit, vegetables, meat and fish. The market is on Thursdays and well worth a visit. There are plenty of banks and cash points and very good exchange rates can usually be found in the town if you take sterling.
