About the Owner
About Elena Aslan
We first visited Kalkan in 2006 and our love affair with the town and its people began on that very first trip. We bought our first villa during that first trip and have been back many times each year since then. Last year we decided to make a further investment in the town we love so much and when we found these three villas, together “The Ottoman Residences” we just couldn’t resist them. During the first half of 2013 we have spent time bringing them up to the standard we think people expect when they rent a luxury villa. Our aim was to create a setting similar to what you would have if you stayed in a luxury hotel, the only difference being that you have your own private pool and a very well equipped kitchen.
Elena Aslan purchased this villa in 2013
Why Elena Aslan chose Lycian & Turquoise Coast
We are delighted that our children (ages 21 & 23) love Kalkan as much as we do. They have been visiting for 7 years and now have as many friends in Kalkan as they do in the UK. You won’t find lots of nightclubs in Kalkan but there are enough bars with music and dancing to keep them happy and more importantly an environment in which they feel safe.
A non refundable deposit of 20% of the villa price is payable to secure a booking. Payment of the final balance is required 8 weeks prior to departure. A £150 ‘breakage/damage’ deposit is also payable with the final balance. This is refundable in total or part thereof, within two weeks of your departure, subject to confirmation from our management company that the villa has been left in good order with no significant damages/breakages to the villa or contents.
The preferred changeover day is Friday, particularly during the high season. The villa will be available from 4 pm on the day of arrival and should be vacated by 10 am on the day of departure. Flexibility can be allowed subject to availability.

Pictures do not do Villa Kaftan justice, lovely views from all bedrooms over the bay of Kalkan. All linen, utensils and furniture are of a very high standard. Lovely welcome pack on arrival and towels provided for around the pool, everything we needed was there!! The service from Lycian Homes was excellent. This is our 3rd visit to Kalkan, we will be back.

Fantastic Villa in perfect location
Our first time in Kalkan and it lived up to the recommendations of our friends. Villa Kavuk was perfect, well maintained, brilliantly well equipped and looked after superbly by the Lycian Coast team. Immaculately clean, with bedding changed twice during our two weeks stay, the pool was maintained very well, with the added bonus of local tourist advice and fresh bread brought to us by Chenil the gardener and pool man. From collection at the airport, hire car and return everything was arranged for us and nothing was too much trouble. The villa was really everything we were looking for and we will definitely be back. Kalkan was a perfect place, has maintained its Turkish charms, but excellent choice of restaurants, beach clubs, beautiful coastline and tourist attractions. We opted more for the restaurants away from the harbour used by the locals, which were every bit as good but better value for money. But the star of the show was the villa which was fantastic.
This was our 5th visit to Kalkan, each time we've stayed in a villa but I have to say this has to be my favourite one so far. Villa Kavuk was perfect, beautifully decorated throughout, very modern and spotlessly clean. Although it is set amongst other villas it felt very private and had beautiful views of Kalkan and the islands. Just a 10-15 minute stroll down to the town which is full of amazing restaurants my favourites being Gourmet, Sade and Moussaka. I really can't fault Villa Kavuk or Lycian Homes who look after it, they had everything you could need in the villa, the pool man even brought us fresh bread every morning. I would also recommend Eylul Boat trip with Captain Ramazan, a trip to the Saklikent Gorge, Kalamar Beach Club and the Kalkan Dive Centre. All in all a fabulous villa in fabulous Kalkan.
We had a fantastic holiday at villa Kaftan. All the facilities both inside and outside were to a high standard and the maintenance of the villa was superb. Kalkan provides a fantastic family holiday and we would love to stay villa Kaftan again. Highly recommend a visit to Patara beach, Palm beach club and a boat trip!
Wonderful holiday in Kalkan
Our first time to Turkey and Kalkan and certainly plan to go back to Villa Kusak again (bottom Villa in pics). From first communication over email to our chauffeur drive home, Elena and her dedicated team are there to help with absolutely anything you need, nothing is too much trouble. Everything about Kalkan and Villa Kusak was impressive.
Everything you needed within the villa was there, every detail thought about, and outside with the comfy sun loungers, fab snug area to get out of the sun, to the amazing pool. The garden is tended to daily and looks beautiful, the views are amazing and it is only a 10 min walk down hill to shops, restaurants and the harbour. Fabulous family holiday!
Villa Kavuk is a great villa in a really good position - wonderful views of Kalkan bay, 10 minutes walk into town down the hill and a really cheap taxi ride back up at the end of the night! Just near enough and far enough away if you know what I mean! Villa is well proportioned and layout - lots of privacy with all bedrooms having ensuite and private balcony. Kitchen really well-equipped. Pool area is lovely with quality sunbeds, plenty of shade, outside dining table and a lovely cushioned seating area. Serviced fantastically by Elena and team. Friendly gardener and a great pool man who even delivered our fresh bread daily! Would definately visit this villa again and would highly recommend.
