Updated: 03-Dec-2016
2 Bedroom Villa in the Patara Prince Resort, Kalkan, Turkey with Sea Views and Wifi - Beautiful Refurbished Villa, Direct Access To The Sea, Four Swimming Pools And Two Restaurants

The Olive Garden Villa is a charming, 2 bedroom villa set in the beautiful resort of Patara Prince, Kalkan. The villa is set in an ideal, secluded location within the resort, but is still only a two minute walk from the Patara Prince hotel and a 5 minute walk down some steps to the two pools overlooking the blue flag awarded sea. The villa is in a fantastic position surrounded by olive trees and stunning pink bougainvillea. It has everything you need for a relaxing holiday in the picturesque resort of Kalkan and was fully refurbished. Inside, the villa has traditional stone walls and marble floors that keep the rooms lovely and cool during the hot summer months. Hot and cold air conditioning is available in both bedrooms if needed. It has a fully equipped kitchen and a lovely lounge area where you can sit and look out to sea. There is a large terrace outside with a covered roof which has stunning views towards sea and Kalkan beyond, perfect for relaxing with a glass of wine.

About the Owner

Thank you for looking at our property, we are Jon and Julie and live in Manchester. I am an IT Manager and Julie an HR Adviser.

When we are not busy working we enjoy eating out, nice wine and dreaming about another holiday!

Buying in Patara Prince was the best decision we ever made and we are always excited to return.

After the fantastic comments received about The Olive Garden we have purchased The Cactus Garden for the 2016 Season which is a fully refurbished one bedroom garden apartment. For those wanting to travel as a larger party we can offer a reduced rate on bookings for both properties allowing comfortable accommodation for six people.

wonderful apartment where everything was perfect

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at the Cactus Garden for 2 weeks. It was a wonderful holiday, the apartment is wonderful, the nicest self catering property we have stayed in. It is modern and has every facility and more than you could wish for. The apartment is set in the grounds of the Patara Prince and you get to use all the hotel facilities. There are three pools to choose from and lots of sunbeds and parasols even in the middle of the day. The restaurants serve good food and everyone is friendly and helpful.

The Cactus Garden is at the top of the resort and the free courtesy bus runs up and down the resort every 15 minutes so the hill becomes a feature not an obstacle.

The owners are really helpful and provide lots of helpful information. Kalkan is a lovely place to visit, lots of really good restaurants, lots of shops, lots of things to do locally and plenty of boat trips to swim and snorkel. The only problem is that you won't want to go home.

Great apartment in a very nice resort

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in the Cactus Garden apartment for a week at the beginning of July.

Once we had booked the owner was very responsive and helpful, answering all our questions promptly.

Upon arrival we were met by the property manager who showed us to the apartment and gave all information we needed about the resort.

The apartment its self is very nice; newly decorated, clean, and with everything you could want. The apartment also came with some essentials, such as water, milk, bread etc, which was great and meant we didn't need to rush straight to the supermarket.

The resort is also great, we ended up spending the majority of our time at it (something we never really do). Being a guest in one of the apartments gives a 25% discount on food/drinks too, which makes the prices very reasonable when compared to restaurants in the centre of Kalkan (which is only a 10 minute walk away).

The only thing to be aware of is that the resort is on quite a steep hill, so the walk from the sea up to the apartment consists of quite a few steps. There is, however, a shuttle that runs every few minutes, which gets around the problem for those who are less able to walk.

All in all a great holiday and a lovely apartment, would definitely recommend.

From the Owner

After returning from a holiday we saw The Olive Garden was available for sale and as soon as we saw the views from the terrace we knew we had to buy it! We had never visited Kalkan previously but fell in love with the town, its restaurants and its people. We decided to purchase in Patara Prince as the property offered everything we required; uninterrupted sea views, onsite bars and restaurants, its own water and electricity supply, 24 hour security and direct sea access from the bathing platforms... not to mention the four swimming pools! We also appreciated the peace and tranquillity of the resort and the beautiful gardens and architecture, better still Kalkan centre is only a short taxi ride or a 20 minute walk away. After the lovely feedback we received about The Olive Garden we decided to purchase another property, The Cactus Garden, a one bedroom ground floor apartment at the top of the resort allowing friends and family to visit whilst offering private accommodation. Fully refurbished for the 2016 season we hope you also enjoy the property.

Activity and Interests

Nearest Airport : Dalaman Airport at 128 Kilometres Nearest Barpub : Patara Prince Agora at 20 Metres Nearest Beach : Patara Prince Waterfront at 200 Metres Car: not necessary


Patara Prince has it's own private access to the sea but does not have a beach. Instead there are steps into the sea from the platforms. The resort has been awarded a blue flag. Kalkan town does have a beach which is a 15 minute walk away or can be reached by the boat that leaves the resort. Further out there is the beautiful Kaputus beach (10 mins by car) or the stunning 18km long Patara beach (20 mins by car).


Kalkan is easily accessible thanks to its two major airports. Dalaman Airport is the closest airport to Kalkan with a transfer time of about 1.5 hours. Antalya Airport is a 3 hour transfer.

We are happy to arrange airport transfers and rental cars for you at time of booking.


Kalkan is a couple of minutes drive away by taxi or car. Taxi's can be booked at the hotel and they will pick you up from reception. A water taxi is also available from Patara Prince in high season to take you to the harbour for a small fee but stops running at 8pm. If you wish to walk into Kalkan this will take approx 20 minutes.

Further Details:


There is a small mini market at the top of the resort that can be used for your basic provisions. However on your arrival a welcome pack will be provided with the basic essentials. Kalkan town has a selection of larger supermarkets and a number of pretty shops and boutiques dotted down the pretty cobbled streets selling pottery, jewellery, clothes and a must for the ladies...handbags ! There are also traditional shops selling carpets and other Turkish goods.

Every Thursday there is a local market selling fruit, veg, spices clothes and gifts. It is a unique and enjoyable experience not to missed. Cheaper than Asda!

Bars and restaurants

There are two restaurants that are open in the Patara Prince resort in high season (one in low season) but for more choice a visit to Kalkan town is a must. There a number of bars in Kalkan ranging from chilled out relaxing bars to enjoy a cocktail, or more livelier bars to dance the night away. There is also a huge choice of restaurants, over 100! These consist of roof top restaurants with views to the sea and mountains,quaint back street restaurants or the stunning harbour side restaurants. The standard of food is very high but there is a number of different cuisines to suit every taste and budget !If you like good food Kalkan is an ideal choice.

Tours and sites

Kalkan is the ideal location to visit the sites . There are a number of historical sites nearby such as Letoon and Patara and boat trips can be arranged from the harbour on the fabulous gullet boats. There are a number of tour operators in the town and Kalkan also has a regular Dolmus (bus) service to sites and beaches.
