About Stephen and Rachel

We were struck by the timeless feel to Turkey and by the priorities the local people have in their daily lives - of making time for family,for food, even for tea(!)

Having found the delights of the Kalkan area and, like many people, we fell in love with its sheer beauty and the alluring simplicity of life in this region as well as the wonderful people who live here.

We now spend much of the year in Turkey - It is a very special part of the world with an inciting culture, mouthwatering cuisine and wonderfully natural and varied landscapes.

We hope at Villa Calkris you too will experience the sheer magic of the Kalkan experience.

Stephen and Rachel purchased this villa in 2012

Why Stephen and Rachel chose Lycian & Turquoise Coast

Kalkan is at at the heart of the Lycian Coast. its proximity to the most fantastic beaches as well as some of the most amazing sites of ancient world make it a brilliant place to have a holiday. There is no shortage of things to do.

Kalkan is a sophisticated destination which has retained its simplicity and natural beauty, but has also become a culinary paradise for those who like to dine and eat the finest. Prices are low compared to the rest of western Europe and the quality is very high. Combine this with the warmth of welcome you receive from the local people and the efforts they make to ensure your stay is one you will remember, make it a perfect place for your holiday.

What makes this villa unique

What enticed us to this region was how the unspoilt surrounding countryside and mountains.

The views from the roof terrace are simply amazing and make the Villa's position one that enjoys the whole vista of Kalkan Bay as well as the surrounding mountains.

Villa Calkris is fortunate to be far enough away from the hustle and bustle of the village nightlife to enjoys its own peace and tranquillity, especially in the evenings, but to be close enough to reach by foot without the need for a car.

Guestbook comments from the owner

This is the first year Villa Calkris has been open for guest use. We hope that, in this our first year accepting guests, we will have many fine words to come.

Little Piece of Paradise

  • 5 of 5

This villa really is outstanding, we arrived late at night with two very tired children to find fresh bread, milk, eggs, homemade Jam & Marmalade along with Tea & coffee. The kitchen is very well equipped and has everything you would expect to find at home, everything was clean and well maintained. The lounge area also has everything you need although to be honest we didn't spend much time inside as the pool area is so impressive and has full sun all day when the sun does begin to fade we would all head up to the roof terrace which again is pretty breath taking. Also worth mentioning is the BBQ situated in the pool area which is a great size and excellent for cooking on we used it at least five times during a two week stay. The bedrooms and en suites are all nicely decorated and spotlessly clean, the balcony off these rooms is a lovely place to read in the early morning sun. The location of the Villa was great for us, having visited Kalkan a few times before we did wonder if it was a bit far out this is not the case! It's about 15 mins walk into town and its a nice walk, we did tend to use a taxi back as its quite steep on the way back up but at around £2.00 for the fare this really isn't an issue. Stephen and Rachel were really responsive to any queries I had before we travelled and also kept in touch with other info they thought we might need to know. Also have to mention Gavin who meets and greets and is around if you need anything during your stay he's really great and nothing is to much trouble. We are already planning on returning.

A great villa with all you need to make the most of your holiday. Really clean and well equipped. Close enough to walk to the town, however a taxi is the best way to get back and these are really cheap around £2.50. The pool area was cleaned everyday so it was always tidy and welcoming , Gareth who looks after you whilst you are there is great, no query to much trouble, The welcome pack when you arrive is a lovely touch as you can have a drink and a bite to eat before going off to explore.

Wonderful villa with all we needed

  • 5 of 5

Our second time to Kalkan, previously staying in Islamlar, but this year we wanted to be a bit closer to town. The photos and written description of the property was very accurate and before making the booking, spoke with Stephen over WhatsApp to clarify a few points. Stephen's arrangements were great for our late arrival and Gareth was available to meet us at 1am to show us around the villa.

The villa is in a quiet part of Kalkan, a little away from the centre. We had rented a car which made going back and forth into the village much easier. Our teenage children were able to walk into town and get a taxi ride back up the hill quite inexpensively.

Stephen & Rachel have lived in the area for quite some time so were able to make some good recommendations, particularly for a relaxing boat trip with a friendly captain. Gareth was on hand if we needed any help.

We had a great two weeks and just wished it was longer.

All best wishes Stephen and Rachel

Stunning villa in Kalkan

  • 5 of 5

I'd never visited Turkey before so was delighted when an opportunity came up last year for a trip. We flew into Dalaman and then had an easy drive to Kalkan where we stayed at Villa Calkris.

We received excellent instructions on how to get to the Villa and were so impressed that Gareth stayed awake into the early hours to welcome us. Nothing seemed too much trouble.

The listing description for the house is entirely accurate and we loved the position of the villa in the town; not slap bang in the centre with all the accompanying noise and hustle, but close enough to stroll in. The villa is located in a quiet street.

The rooms are all nicely appointed, and the ground floor is very comfortable. There is a beautiful dining area on the veranda where we spent many a happy breakfast/lunch/supper sipping chilled wine and enjoying the private pool. The kitchen had everything and more that we needed. The bedrooms are large and airy and everything was super clean. The top floor has another twin bedded room with a terrace off which looks out to the sea.

Kalkan itself is vibrant with loads of places to eat and no matter what your preference and budget you will find that there is something for you. The town beach was great and we found a brilliant café overlooking the bay where we could eat breakfast looking out at the crystal clear waters. We particularly liked the beach clubs and couldn't believe that you didn't have to pay to enjoy such comfortable and spectacular locations. The food was always great in these places, no matter where you went.

We also particularly liked Kas and visited more than a couple of times; the drive is stunning.

All in all, we enjoyed everything, the villa, distance from airport, towns, sights, food, drink and the people.

I'd return in a heartbeat!

We have now stayed at Villa Calkris twice over the past years, with each visit a fantastic and memorable one. The owners Stephen and Rachel couldn't have been more helpful, with an abundance of local knowledge of things to and see. The villa is situated in the picturesque town of Kalkan, just a short walk to the beach and a vast number of brilliant (and reasonably priced!) restaurants, bars and shops.

For when you need a break from the bustling town, the villa itself has everything you need, and more. With a fully equipped and spacious kitchen and lounge, it really felt like a 'home away from home'. The rooms were large and comfortable, beautifully decorated and spotless when we arrived. The pool area is lovely, and multiple roof terraces have incredible sea views, both with comfy loungers great for relaxing in the sun.

All in all, the positive things about our stay here were endless! If you want a holiday to remember, then I can't recommend this villa enough. Thank you Stephen and Rachel, we will definitely be back soon!

Beautiful Villa!!

  • 5 of 5

We had a really great holiday staying at this beautiful villa. Situated just above the centre of town, it has amazing views over kalkan bay, especially from the lovely roof terrace where we watched the sunset with a nice glass of wine! The villa also has a beautifully kept garden surrounding the pool area, where we spent most days lounging by the pool. Inside it is very tastefully furnished, with an authentic Turkish feel. And the kitchen is really well equipped for cooking. The hosts made us feel really welcome and were very knowledgable about the local area. We had such a great time (and amazing weather!) and will definitely be rebooking this villa for next year!!
