Top Traveller Review

About the Owner

We are a couple from Shropshire with two small children who enjoy travelling and have settled on a property in Kalkan for all it can offer us as a family.

We initially bought the villa to use for just ourselves and family however now one of our children has started school we cannot visit as much as we would like and it makes sense to rent it out and let others benefit from its wonderful location.

Wonderful

  • 5 of 5

Spent a lovely week in this gem of a villa. The photos don't do it justice as the views from everywhere, the roof terrace, the pool, the outdoor eating area, are beautiful. The villa itself is really well equipped, comfortable and spacious. Thoroughly relaxing and Plenty of local amenities. The rooftop restaurants nearer the harbour are a real treat. Need a taxi back though as the hills are very steep...

Will definitely return.

Location

From the Owner

We first visited Kalkan with friends and fell in love with the town and the people. Having visited many areas of Turkey before it was a wonderful surprise to find that such an authentic, unspoilt place still existed. As a newly married couple we enjoyed all the fantastic restaurants that Kalkan boasts, I believe over 150 at present, the great boutiques and craft shops, the variety of excursions and day trips available and the general pleasantness of the locals. There are no high rise developments and very few bars, consequently it retains a great deal of charm and atmosphere. We now have a young family and enjoy a couple of holidays a year to the villa as the location is perfect, the weather always pleasant and the children love the pool and the nearby beaches.

Activity and Interests

Car: not necessary

Coast/Beach:

Kalkan's stone beach is about 15 minutes away. There are wonderful sandy beaches nearby. Patara beach has 7 miles of golden sands and is considered by The Sunday Times as amongst the top six in the world. Patara is about a 15 minute drive away - buses leave for Patara every 30 minutes. Kaputas beach is a 10 minute drive in the opposite direction, on the road to Kas, which is well worth a visit.

Travel:

Dalaman is the nearest airport now open all year round. It is approximately 1.5 hours drive. There are direct flights from many UK airports, including direct flights with EasyJet from Gatwick. Antalya airport is 2.5 – 3 hour drive.

Transfers can be arranged to Kalkan with either a minibus or private taxi, also car hire and excursions whilst you are on holiday.

Distances:

Villa Jasmin is a 10 minute walk to the heart of Kalkan, however there are supermarkets, shops and banks a 5 minute stroll away.

Kalkan is surrounded by many places of interest ranging between a 10 to 30 minute drive away. Places to visit the Lycian way, Saklikent Gorge, Kekova sunken city, Tlos, Xanthos, Letoon and magnificent beach of Patara. It is possible to experience a Hamam and other relaxing spa treatments within a short walk of the villa.

Further Details:

A hire car is not essential but taxis will come in three minutes if needed. most of the supermarkets offer a home delivery service. The nearest bank, doctors, pharmacy, dentist are all within 5 mins. At the south west corner of the Turkish coast (Turquoise Coast) lies one of the most beautiful and unspoiled areas of the Mediterranean. Kalkan was once occupied by the Greek Ottomans and their legacy has left an old town full of character. It has steep cobbled streets that wind down towards the harbour and the locals are exceptionally friendly.

During the day Kalkan is almost disarmingly laid-back, as visitors choose to enjoy the crystal clear waters lapping the Lycian coast. The public beach next to Kalkan's harbour was recently extended and is more than adequate for swimming and sunbathing. However you choose to spend your days, no-one can resist being back in Kalkan in the evening, for the variety and quality of eating places on offer is quite astonishing for such a compact town. There are little restaurants that are so low key that many visitors never notice them; just the place to enjoy delicious and genuine local cooking. Magical surroundings, a dash of relaxed sophistication and a seemingly limitless variety of places to explore make Kalkan irresistible. The restaurants in Kalkan offer an exceptionally high standard of food and service, many restaurants have romantic roof terraces looking out over Kalkan. Eating out is excellent value and the Turkish wines are surprisingly good. The pretty cobbled streets of the old town are an Aladdin's cave with an abundance of shops selling clothes, jewellery, handbags, gifts, etc. There is also a weekly market on a Thursday. There are a number of bars that stay open through the small hours and play music but no loud nightclubs.

Facilities

From the Owner

Villa Jasmin is located in a quiet residential area within close proximity to the town, therefore whilst you can enjoy peace and quiet in the day, it is also only a 10-15 minute stroll down to the town. The weekly market less than 5 minutes away. The villa itself is very spacious inside, with a large open plan kitchen/lounge which is wonderful for families and couples alike. The outside space is also plentiful with a lovely private pool, pretty gardens and lowered terrace with bespoke BBQ and seating area. We have holidayed here with our two boys since they were 6 months old, we have a high chair and also a basic Mothercare buggy which can be used upon request. We often hire a car and visit the local sights especially Patara beach, a haven for small children.
