About the Owner

Thank you for looking at Villa Benita, we brought the villa in 2013, Kalkan had been recommended to us by several friends so we booked a family holiday and stayed at a nearby villa. At the time we had no intention of buying a property, but we loved all that Kalkan had to offer, the scenery, the relaxed atmosphere, amazing restaurants and the Turkish people. We saw the villa and thought that it was the perfect place to create a family retreat in the sun.

We then went about refurbishing and updating the villa, and added everything you would need to make it not just somewhere to stay, a but a home in the sun, we love spending time here, and we are delighted to say that our guests do to.

When Charles and I are not relaxing in Kalkan we are wine merchants based in East Anglia. We have two sons and enjoy getting together with family and friends. If you would like any suggestions or tips as to how to make the most of your time in Kalkan we would all be very happy to help.

Totally Perfect

  • 5 of 5

From the first communication's with Rosie we knew we have found a little gem in Villa Benita and Kalkan.

Having been to Turkey numerous times over the last 7 years and loved it we thought with some trepidation to try a villa holiday in a little resort rather that the usual all inclusive. And what a joy it was.

Rosie could not have been any more helpfull from the initial enquiry all the way through to actually turning up, offering help on ways to pay and suggestions of things to do, it was all very friendly and efficient from start to finish.

We were met at the airport by the transfer taxi arranged through Mehmet who looks after the Villa, and we were quickly on our way in air conditioned comfort, the journey itself took arounf 1.5 hours but was not stressfull in any way with the driver being courteous and pleasant.

The Villa itself was perfect, very clean and containing everything you could ever need, it was a very pleasant experiance to see the thought that had went into the little things at the Villa which made it feel like a home from home, from providing beach towels to simple things like tin foil and wine bottle stoppers, aswell as a nice welcoming pack to ensure you could russle something up after a long journey to the Villa from the UK. Everything in the Villa was perfect, and it was clear that Rosie has taken time and effort to ensure its all set out beautifully ensuring a very comfortable stay, plenty of storage space and room in all the rooms, along with satelite TV and fast internet for catching up with home. The pool was ideal, very clean and clear, it received full sun up till around 4pm then it was time to retire to the roof terrace for some more sunbathing and a pre dinner drink.

The Villa itself is located in a quiet area and not overlooked to any great extent, and we could walk into the main part of the town in around 15 minutes all downhill. It is a trek coming back so would recommend a taxi back up the hill, only 10 lira so well worth it.

Kalkan itself was a lovely resort, plenty of bars and restaurants to choose from all at a high standard and very friendly. For us it was noticably quiet although not too quiet so although we tended to book you could walk into most and get a good table quite easily. Our favourites were Corriander for a nice family run affair through to the excellence of Kosk.

All in all a brilliant holiday and can't wait to go back, it was perfect in every way, Thanks Rosie for a lovely VIlla

Simply perfect

  • 5 of 5

This was our third visit to Villa Benita and our stay was as fabulous as ever. The villa is beautifully presented - being both tastefully furnished and fully equipped with everything that you could possibly need. Rosie has thought of everything but each year we find that she continues to add extra little touches to keep the villa looking so attractive and beautifully cared for. The villa was spotlessly clean, and, as ever, extremely comfortable. It was lovely to be back for another year.

When not out at one of the stylish beach clubs or on a boat trip to one of the fabulous beaches, the villa has charming places to sit throughout the course of the day. Whether eating on the terrace in the shade of the pergola draped in vines and bougainvillea, lazing on one of the very comfortable sun beds around the pool, or sitting on the roof terrace looking out over the bay with an early morning coffee (or evening aperitif and barbecue), there is a perfect spot for everyone and, as ever, we enjoyed them all.

It was very special to be back in the stylish and pretty little town of Kalkan and to be welcomed again so warmly in the various shops, restaurants and cocktail bars that are now our family favourites - a real feeling of belonging. It would have been rude not to have come home with at least one purse and handbag and so of course we couldn't resist !

As ever, we enjoyed some fabulous meals and a welcome gentle sea breeze in the warmth of the evenings alongside the harbour at Doy Doy and Aubergine but it's hard to beat cocktails (on the new terrace) and dinner in the always-intimate setting of Sade.

It is perhaps worth mentioning that travel between Dalaman airport and Kalkan is effortless. As usual, our uniformed driver and very comfortable air-conditioned people carrier was awaiting our flight arrival and returned us to the airport on the trip home in plenty of time for the various reassuringly impressive airport security checks. The journey is only 90 minutes long and is very reasonably priced. The road between Dalaman and Kalkan provides some beautiful mountain and coastal scenery and I wouldn't hesitate to hire a car if the driver option wasn't so easy or cost effective.

No stay in Kalkan would be complete without Mehmet of course who continues to look after Villa Benita so beautifully and who is always on hand to ensure that we have everything we need during our stay.

Thank you Rosie for another fabulous stay at Villa Benita. Penny

The villa was extremely comfortable and very well equipped. The situation was wonderful it was an easy walk into town and a quick ride back up the hill in a taxi at the end of the night.

Kalkan is great full of amazing fantastic restaurants and very friendly people. We will definitely go back.

A fantastic villa, we really enjoyed the roof terrace as well as the lovely pool.

Wonderful Villa in Lovely Kalkan

  • 5 of 5

What a find. Villa Benita is a beautifully equipped, peaceful villa with everything you could possibly need. The garden is very peaceful and pool area has both sun and shade for those who prefer to stay out of the sun. The roof terrace is a lovely place to catch the late afternoon, evening sun and offers gorgeous views over the bay of Kalkan,

Kalkan is only a short walk away down the hill where there are many fantastic restaurants to choose from and plenty of shopping too!

I would have no hesitation in recommending this villa...it's fabulous.

Fantastic Villa in beautiful Kalkan

  • 5 of 5

We have just booked Villa Benita for a third time and are very much looking forward to returning to Kalkan. Villa Benita is a very comfortable, well equipped, beautifully clean villa within walking distance of the fantastic restaurants and shops Kalkan has to offer. We were met by Mehmet upon arriving who continued to be extremely friendly and helpful throughout our stay. Villa Benita is set in beautiful surroundings almost tucked away in a hidden garden which is very peaceful and tranquil. We all throughly enjoyed the pool and terrace area and the comfortable roof terrace in the evenings. Thank you to Rosie and Charles who make booking very straightforward and make you feel very well looked after. I feel very confident in highly recommending Villa Benita to others.

Great discovery

  • 5 of 5

What a great Villa !!!

Having never been to Turkey before, I was amazed at the great climate - hardly a cloud in the sky and 30deg in September !! Fantastic !!

The villa easily accommodated the 5 of us for the week and enjoying the air con, the pool, the huge number of restaurants and the incredible friendliness of the Turkish people.

Mahmet looks after the villa and is a font of all knowledge making it so easy to book trips that suit you. English appears to be the main language in the town, making the trips easy to enjoy as well.

This villa is situated in the prime area for the town - within walking distance of the shops and restaurants but also far enough into the residential area that you have peace and quiet at the poolside.

I would heartily recommend this villa and Turkey to anyone.

From the Owner

We had a wonderful family holiday in Kalkan, we enjoyed the area so much that we decided to invest in a property. There is so much to do, the people are so friendly and can't do enough to help you. The climate is superb with long hot sunny days and warm evenings. Kalkan is an elegant and stylish resort with a huge choice of excellent restaurants. Turkish wine is very good, the local Sauvignon Blanc is well worth a try.

Activity and Interests


We are 10 minutes from the town beach and 5 minutes from Kalamar Beach Club, who offer a collection service from the villa. There are several beach clubs in Kalkan all offering various water sports, most with restaurants.

Kaputas is the nearest sandy beach, 15 minutes away by taxi. Patara beach has 18km of fine white sand, the beach is a protected area and nature reserve and worth a visit, 20 minutes away by bus or taxi


The nearest airport is Dalaman approximately 75-90 minutes away. Antalya is 3 hours away. Airport transfers can be arranged. Expect to pay £150 return for an air conditioned minibus taxi for 4 people. Mehmet can arrange this for you.


Kas is 30 minutes from the villa and well worth a visit, the route will take you along the coast road with stunning views of the Med, the nearest large town is Fethiye which is an hour away.

Shops and restaurants are 10 minutes from the villa, the Old Town area is 15 minutes down a very steep hill, so flip flops are probably better than high heels.

Further Details:

Kalkan has 5 banks with cash machines. There is an English speaking Doctor 5 minutes from the villa. Our agent Mehmet is available every day to help should you have any problems.

Kalkan is an elegant and sophisticated resort, eating out is a joy, with wonderful food beautifully served on tables dressed with crisp white linen cloths, accompanied by a good selection of local wines. Pleasant evenings can be spent wandering around the Old Town, stopping for a cocktail, and just enjoying the ambience of this unique town.
