About the Owner
About Nick Swindley
We discovered Kalkan in 2008 and fell in love with the place and the people. It was in 2011 that we bought our apartment, you could say it was sliding doors, having made new friends who told us about it and we then thought it too good an opportunity to miss! Set in a quiet location it is 1 of 7 apartments of which 5 are owned by English people who holiday a few times a year. Our fellow neighbour Deniz looks after it for us and speaks very good English. It is also only a 10 minute walk from the town with The Regency Hotel and Pasha Apartments both close by and which are perfect for evening cocktails. Unfortunately we are unable to holiday in the apartment as much as we would like and have decided to share it with others.
Nick Swindley purchased this apartment in 2011
