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.

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!!

Absolutely Fantastic Villa

  • 5 of 5

We had a fantastic holiday in Kalkan. The villa is superb with everything you need. The pool, gardens & furniture are 1st class, with a shaded table to relax & have lunch. Great location with amazing views especially from the roof top patio where you can relax & have a drink in the evenings.

Stephen was very helpfully, arranged the transfers & Gareth looked after us during our stay.

Beautiful villa in a beautiful town

  • 5 of 5

This was our second stay in Villa Calkris and I am sure we will be returning!

The villa itself is stunning, with a beautiful pool area (for when even the short walk to the sea seems like too much effort), spacious balconies with sun loungers and wonderful views of the coastline.

The owners were extremely accommodating, providing plenty of information about local amenities and things to do.

Even this late in the season the weather was still beautiful, with the added benefit that the normally bustling town centre in Kalkan, only 15 minutes walk away from the villa, was serenely quiet.

Kalkan offered a wide variety of restaurants and bars, predominantly very reasonably priced, as well as lots of activities. On each of our stays we spent a day on a boat owned by one of the locals, travelling around the coast, stopping for a swim every now and then, as well as having a delicious meal cooked on board for us.

It was an utterly serene week, and as I look outside and see a typical 'great British summer', I wish that we were back there already.

A perfect stay in every way possible!!

  • 5 of 5

We had a fantastic stay at Villa Calkris and loved Kalkan. The panoramic views from the villa right around the bay and of the mountains behind are really breathtaking. This is sepical place! We were glad of the peaceful situation especially at night when the old town started to buzz, but we were still within a stroll of everything - Thursday market only 5 mins away. The villa is really well equipped and well presented - they have thought of everything -and the finishing touches Rachel and Stephen have created have really made it a very special place for stay. We felt immediately at home and thoroughly spoilt! The balconies are all well furnished and there is tons of space - the roof terrace is a particularly amazing space, well equipped for chilling and star gazing! and the huge pool terrace and surrounding gorgeous mature gardens give it such a lush feeling. We would definitely recommend this villa if you are wanting peace, quality and charm - Villa Calkris has it all! Thank you again! We will be back...
