About the property

Villa in Islamlar, Kalkan, Turkey - Peaceful And Quiet Location With Easy Access To Several Towns And Beaches

Villa Papatyam is a traditional villa situated at the edge of forests in the beautiful village of islamlar. The villa accommodates five guests, including children. With its private pool, large terrace, outdoor bbq and stunning sea views over the hills towards kalkan, villa papatyam is your excellent choice for a relaxing holiday. The hills ensure a cooler and dryer climate than the one down at the sea shore: generally a marked difference of around 5 degrees c in summer.A holiday spent at villa papatyam allows you to combine the quiet surroundings of islamlar with the attractions of kalkan and its region, among others beautiful patara beach (a 20+ minute drive), kaputas beach (also a 20+ minute drive), and many archaeological sites such as xanthos and letoon. Kalkan town with its friendly pebble beach, abundant restaurants and attractive shops is only a 15 minute drive away from the villa. The villa is part of a compound with two other villas, but all enjoy their entire privacy.

Beautiful and Tranquil

  • 5 of 5

We had the pleasure of staying at Villa Papatya for 10 nights in September. It was stunningly beautiful and had the most incredible views across to Kalkan Harbour. It is traditional style which we absolutely love and had everything to make you feel totally at home, including a inourmous main bedroom! We had the best nights sleep that we had had in years! The location just outside the village of Islamlar is perfect as it is so peaceful and yet only 10 mins walk (would need a torch as dark roads) to a few very good local restaurants (or 2 minutes drive) and also only 20 mins drive down the mountain to the bigger but beautiful harbour town of Kalkan, which hosts lots of bars, restaurants, supermarkets and ATMs. It is close to many historic sites and the bigger holiday towns such as Olu Deniz are only a 50 minute drive away. Loads to do but great to return to the villa for a cooling dip at the end of your busy day. The temperature in the hills is about 5 degrees cooler than on the coast which is a great releif. We had a small issue with the hot water, but i made one phone call and it was fixed within the hour. You can't ask for better service than that - the maintenance company were great. Heleen (the owner) was also great to deal with and kept us informed at every step of the booking process. Overall the most relaxing holiday we have had for ages and one that we will definitiely repeating. Thank you Heleen your villa is perfect.
