About the Owner
I bought the Villa in 2004 and have spent most summers in Kalkan.
This is the second year that I've rented the villa.
I hope you enjoy the local people as I have done over many years. They are very friendly.
Activity and Interests
The villa is within walking distance of Kalkan's attractive beach. The town also has 7 beach clubs in stunning locations. Alternatively, a 10 minute dolmus ride (local minibus service) will take you to beautiful Kaputas beach, or a 20 minute ride takes you to the famous Patara beach with its 17km of pure white lsand. Patara beach, set in a national park, has been voted one of the Meds most beautiful and undiscovered beaches. Olu Deniz, Turkey's most photographed beach, is aprox an hour's drive.
The nearest airport is Dalaman (approx 1.5 hour drive) and flights are direct from the UK. Transfer to and from the airport is usually by private taxi or minibus. We can arrange transfers and car hire from Kalkan at very reasonable prices
Kalkan town centre, 3 mins drive, less than 15 min walk. Kaputas beach, 10 min drive. Patara beach, 20 min drive. Kas, 30 min drive. Fethiye, under 1 hour drive. Other local attractions are easily accessible, such as Xanthos (the ancient capital of Lycia), the sunken city of Kekova, the ghost town of Kayakoy, the rock tombs of Tlos, Demre and the Church of St Nicholas (Father Christmas), the mountain villages of Islamlar and Bezirgan, and Saklikent Gorge. Daily boat trips are also available.
The idyllic town of Kalkan on Turkey's dramatic Lycian coastline nestles in the Taurus Mountains above a small, picturesque harbour. Its enchanting narrow streets lined with small shops, local restaurants and listed whitewashed houses with shuttered windows and carved timber balconies tumbling with bougainvillea, twist down to an ancient harbour. From here, overlooked by a tiny white mosque, the fish are brought ashore in the morning and the wooden gullets sail out on their day trips around the bays and outlying islands.
The climate in Turkey is similar to southern California, and the sea is the colour of turquoise. Whether you want to relax by your own pool or on sun-drenched beaches, visit ancient sites, shop at bargain prices for real gold jewellery or fake designer labels, there is something here for everyone. There is also a good range of sports available, including: diving, snorkelling, water-skiing, jet-skiing, windsurfing, sailing, horse riding, sea cayaking, canooing, paragliding, and more.
For food lovers, Kalkan offers some of the best food in Turkey, either from its traditional locantas, the harbour-front restaurants, or on the romantic roof terraces for which Kalkan is famous. Or visit the trout restaurants of Islamlar, the mountain village above Kalkan, where the trout pools are fed by mountain springs.
Kalkan is a friendly, picture-postcard pretty, town that despite its increasing popularity and sophistication has retained its charm. No wonder so many holiday makers return to Kalkan every year.
