About Gabby & Ant

Ant & Gabby live in the UK; one works in the film industry, the other is a graphic designer. They have two children & all try to get to Turkey as often as possible. Lucky enough to be able to buy their own villa in 2011, & having stayed at many villas in the past, they wanted to make Villa Paramelle as comfortable as possible for their guests as well as themselves, to ensure a really relaxing holiday no matter how many days you stay.

Gabby & Ant purchased this villa in 2011

Why Gabby & Ant chose Lycian & Turquoise Coast

We fell in love with this area after holidaying here many times. Kalkan has not been ruined by mass tourism & remains an unspoilt yet sophisticated resort, with many restaurants, cafes & a few bars (some just a few minutes walk). Once people visit Kalkan you find they return again & again. We chose this property because of the 180° views from all levels (across both bays & to the mountain at the side), the peace & privacy it affords, & it's easy walking distance into town.

What makes this villa unique

Villa Paramelle is in a quiet area of Kalkan, on a hillside which affords stunning views, yet close enough to the old town, beach & harbour to be able to walk everywhere (though we do have private off-street parking) - so hiring a car is not necessary, unless you want to visit one of the many attractions nearby - ancient ruins, stunning scenery in the mountains, sandy beaches or out of the way restaurants. The villa is very private, tastefully decorated & exceptionally well-equipped. Our infinity-edged pool is private with stunning views, & we have a garden full of tropical plants. We want a beautiful place to holiday in, & want our guests to enjoy the same. The view from our roof terrace as the sun goes down is one of the best in Kalkan, & now we've built a large shade pergola there you can enjoy this space all day long.

Guestbook comments from the owner

After getting engaged in Kalkan two years earlier, there was little question as to where we should spend our honeymoon. Villa Paramelle looked absolutely perfect – and it was! We couldn't have asked for more, and only managed to pull ourselves away from the pool, comfy sunbeds and absolutely incredible view once during the entire holiday (other than for the short walk into town for some fantastic meals in the evenings). The whole holiday was perfect, and Gai and Tony were brilliant in terms of booking and arranging transfers from the airport – we didn't have to think about anything ourselves which was exactly what we needed. We couldn't recommend the villa more highly, especially for anyone looking for the perfect place to spend a honeymoon in Kalkan, and cannot wait to go back.

Hannah & Craig, UK. June 2013

Wonderful villa, stunning views, spotlessly clean and true to the description on the website. Owners very helpful and communication prompt and efficient.

Incredible Villa in an Incredible Location

  • 5 of 5

This was our 3rd holiday in Kalkan and by far the best. A result of the location and the quality of Paramelle Villa. Our two previous stays in different villas, located on the opposite side of Kalkan and the other higher up in the hills, were fantastic and so to beat them - this was extremely special.

Kalkan has never struggled with things to do; top end food and restaurants, water activities and the scenery, all to die for!

The whole process from booking Paramelle Villa to spending 10 days was amazing and would like to thank Gai and Tony for making things so easy and informative.

So how would we change the villa to be better? Well that was one of our conversations in the infinity pool, overlooking the bays (Kalkan and Kalamar), the sun glistening off the still water, in 35 degrees, with an immaculate villa behind us - we wouldn't and couldn't!

It was all perfect!

I cannot recommend Villa Paramelle or its owners enough, if you are reading this to find issues or faults, sorry to disappoint - you will not find any here! So book it, it's certainly worth every penny and more.

Thanks again and we will be in touch about future dates.If you ever consider selling please think of us.

Fantastic Villa with draw dropping views of Kalkan

  • 5 of 5

The Villa overwhelmed us from the moment we arrived. Breath taking views of Kalkan from the Infiniti pool to every room in the Villa. The Villa has a lovely little mezzanine area which we used in the evening to chill out and relax.

Kalkan is a little gem of a holiday resort with too many restaurants to choose from, with some great ones just around the corner from Villa.

One recommendation for Gai and Tony is to change your intro photo on Owners Direct, as I am sure once people see the views from your Villa you will be booked out constantly!!!

All in all a faultless Villa, location and resort, can't wait to come back again

Owner's Response: Thank you for the lovely review, we also never tire of the views, every time we come we fall in love with them again, & feel very fortunate to be able to see the water from so many different angles & levels. It's hard to pick an intro photo, I went for the hot pink bougainvillea being a nice contract with the turquoise water! Would love to welcome you again, best wishes G&T

Very good small villa in excellent location

  • 4 of 5

My wife and I have just returned from a two week stay. The owner and local management team provided excellent customer service and support. The villa's listing was accurate. The location is very good. It's not far from the old town and downhill all the way (15 min walk). The taxi service is excellent and very cheap if you don't fancy the return uphill trek. The biggest surprise was the number of very good restaurants within a couple of hundred yards of the villa which rival any of those in the town and which are notably cheaper. The villa is well equipped and the pool small but well maintained. There is ample provision for shade for those who want to remain outside in the heat of the day. As the listing suggests, the villa is not suitable for anyone with mobility problems. With this exception, I would not hesitate to recommend Villa Paramelle. Even for a 2 person stay, its price is very good value.

Amazing luxury villa with breathtaking views

  • 5 of 5

Just back from the most wonderful week in Kalkan staying at Villa Paramelle. The resort is lovely, the villa is very luxurious with absolutely stunning views, am going to miss waking up to those views. We went with our 19 year old twin boys. I was worried there wouldn’t be enough for them to do but how wrong was I. During the week we went quad biking, on a boat trip, trip to Patara beach, OluDeniz, ghost town, Fetihey Market, beachparks and did various water sports. The restaurants were all lovely, the locals are great and the food amazing. I would highly recommend Kalkan and particularly Villa Paramelle, it’s even better than the photos and the owners and arrangements made were faultless. We will be back!

beautiful villa with stunning views

  • 5 of 5

We love Kalkan, having visited many times before. This was our first stay in Villa Paramelle but we have already booked to stay here again twice next year! The views from the villa are simply stunning, especially from the luxurious infinity pool. It's an easy downhill walk into the heart of Kalkan in the evening although there are very good bars and restaurants nearby too. The owners have put a lot of thought into making this a homely, comfortable and welcoming villa. Gai is extremely helpful and answers any queries quickly and efficiently. We cannot recommend Villa Paramelle highly enough and are counting the days until our return visit next spring!

Wow! Wonderful villa in a breathtaking location. We SHALL return.

  • 5 of 5

You are so lucky to have a fabulous villa in such a unique location. Kalkan is clearly a resort that appeals to British tourists yet thankfully retains its Turkish authenticity. Our first visit to Kalkan and it will not be our last. The view from your villa is such that you can simply sit and watch a subtly changing view for hours. Favourite restaurants were Coriander and The Brothers along with Bodamya up in Islamlar which is well worth a lunch visit if only for the view. Villa was clean comfortable and welcoming. We often walked back from town after an evening meal but if your preference is to take a taxi avoiding a couple of short steep hills then they are as cheap as chips! Thankyou for having us Gai and Tony.
