About Pippa Leggate

David & Pippa Leggate.

We live in England with our two dogs, but travel regularly with our work and visiting our family overseas. Southern Turkey has become a favourite destination for us all over many years, reflecting our enjoyment of it's fascinating culture, hospitable people, Mediterranean climate and beautiful coastline with it's terrific range of water sports. As keen sailors, Turkey has simply been our favourite country for all that it offers.

Pippa Leggate purchased this villa in 2013

Why Pippa Leggate chose Lycian & Turquoise Coast

We love Kalkan for it's stunning sea views, charming ambience, relaxed sophistication, range of excellent restaurants and the variety of sea sports available. It is accessible, but appeals especially to those discerning individuals of all ages who enjoy good living and the opportunity to escape to the Turquoise Turkish Coast with all that it offers during the different seasons of the year.

What makes this villa unique

Villa Kaplumbaga has a wonderful location in the Kisla area of Kalkan, with outstanding sea views and the advantage of only a three minute walk to the sea. Close proximity to the sea offers safe bathing with the amenities of the Beach Club and other beach facilities as well as the water taxi into Kalkan Harbour in the season. The villa is well appointed and offers the choice of facilities for fine dining at home or dinner out at one of the 100 or more local excellent restaurants. Information and recommendations of the local amenities as well as places to visit are provided in the villa.

A little slice of Turkish heaven

  • 5 of 5

Where do I start?

Kalkan holds a special place in my heart for many reasons, hence why I have returned three times!

The beauty starts from the moment you come around the bend as you approach the bay and the view that warmly greets you is just breath-taking. The photographs do not do it justice.

The villa is ideally situated; it is secluded enough to make you feel like you have your own private piece of this bay as well as being a short distance away from the main town where there are numerous welcoming and delicious places to eat and drink at. I highly suggest getting yourself a chilled drink at Kalkan beach club (a 1 minute walk from the villa) and get the water taxi into town at least once during your stay! This year, I was lucky enough to take an early morning swim on several occasions at the beach club and was accompanied by a turtle! Just magical!

Every detail of the villa has clearly been considered. The owners have thought about how to make their guest's stay as comfortable as possible. It blends together local and homely touches together with all the mod cons that one should need. Each room is spacious, clean and light. Simple touches such as the Turkish plaques by each door shows the care and attention that the villa has received by its owners.

Personal highlights of my stay at Villa Kaplumbaga are:

- the views of the bay from every angle of the villa

-sunset drinks on the rooftop - this is a very special moment to share with loved ones

- taking a boat trip out with Deniz and seeing Kalkan from a different perspective - a must!

As you can tell, I am a definite fan of Kalkan and it won't be my last visit to Villa Kaplumbaga!

Absolutely lovely villa with stunning views

  • 5 of 5

We were met by Karyn who looks after you on arrival, Irfan is the Pool man who also delivers you fresh bread every morning, the villa was immaculate with a good sized lounge & kitchen leading to the outdoor patio eating area & pool with stunning views across the bay. The bedrooms are all a good size & all with beautiful ensuite. The location for us was excellent as we wanted a relaxing holiday, the town is just 5 minutes away by taxi. The villa is well equipped with Satalite TV and everything else you may need during your stay.

Kalkan itself is lovely, little streets with shops, bars & stunning rooftop restaurant's serving exquisite food, be prepared to add a few pounds!!

If you have never been to Kalkan you will not be disappointed and I am sure you will return again & again.

Overall the Villa was stunning, Kalkan was friendly & beautiful which all contributed to a wonderful holiday, thanks Pippa.

Kalkan 2016

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in Kalkan with friends last year and fell in love with the place and so decided to return this year taking with us our 2 children and their spouses and our nephew. We did the usual search on Owners Direct and ultimately decided to stay at this Villa.

We were not disappointed. The Villa was perfectly located in the quite backwater of Kisla - a 15 minute walk from Kalkan or 5 minute taxi ride. The Villa was furnished to a very high standard and it felt just like home from home with David and Pippa leaving all their own home comforts for all to share. All of your holiday requirements were fully catered for by Karyn, the resident caretaker arranging delivery of shopping to Irfan the lovely local man who attended every day to clean the pool and surrounding area and bring fresh bread. It was heaven. The Villa gets our gold star 10 out of 10. David was superb in his communications in our lead up to the holiday.

Kalkan is a lovely place with so many superb eating houses and places to spend your days and evenings from beach bars to days out on privately chartered boats - ours was £200 for 9 of us for a full day - wonderful experience and great value for money.

We were disappointed to learn that so many British people were being deterred from visiting Turkey because of the recent troubles - hyped up as usual by the British media. Turkey is a massive country and we did not meet a single inhabitant who gave us any cause for concern - in fact quite the opposite. the Turkish people are genuinely kind and friendly and proud of their traditions of welcoming visitors into their fold. In summary David and Pippa can be proud of Villa Kaplumbaga and all it has to offer. There is no doubt whatsoever - as Arnie sais "WE'LL BE BACK".

Owner's Response: Dear Anonymous & Family, We're so glad that you all enjoyed your holiday at Villa Kaplumbaga in Kisla, Kalkan. One of the reasons we bought the villa was it's location. Fabulous views from every room, it's own private pool and only a 3 minute walk to the Beach Club and the sea, as well as a couple of minutes walk to excellent restaurants. What more could one wish for? Kalkan also provides for most ages and interests, with excellent water sports, good walks and some fabulous historical sites to explore. We look forward very much to welcoming you back to Villa Kaplumbaga next year. All the very best, David & Pippa.

Best Villa We've Ever Stayed In

  • 5 of 5

As 2 families with teenagers it was fantastic to have so much space to spread out in. The villa is superb and the setting is stunning. This was our second visit to Kalkan and although a little bit quieter, the beach clubs and town were still full of life with a wonderful friendly relaxed atmosphere. A boat trip with Captain Ali on Dream Boat was a great day out with fantastic lunch and swimming. As well as dining in various restaurants it was lovely to be able to enjoy alfresco dining at the poolside watching the beautiful sunset. Kalkan is a becoming a firm favourite with us all and the villa made it even more special.

Fantastic Villa in suberb setting

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed a wonderful family holiday at Villa Kaplumbaga. The position is superb with fabulous views over Kalkan bay. We were looked after superbly by Karyn and Irfan and communications with the owners were efficient and friendly. We found the Turkish people to be delightfully friendly and warm, and the food in the restaurants generally delicious and reasonably priced. A day trip on a Gullette was a high point as was a meal in the restaurant Fidanka a couple of hundred meters above the house. All in all a great visit and we will be back!

Owner's Response: Dear Gibson family, Many thanks for your review. We are so happy that you enjoyed your holiday in Kalkan in general and Villa Kaplumbaga in particular. You seemed to be a party of all ages, but Kalkan really does oblige everyone! We hear that life in Kalkan is very much business as usual, and offers a peaceful and relaxing holiday. We are certainly looking forward to visiting again early September. Karyn & Irfan are something else, aren't they? We look forward to welcoming you back again soon. All the best, David & Pippa.

Villa Kaplumbaga is approx. 300m from the sea. Kalkan Beach Club and The Mahal Beach Club are just a few minutes walk down from the villa. They all have restaurants and operate a water taxi service to Kalkan Harbour. Kalkan has a pleasant pebbly beach.

Within easy reach are Kaputas Beach and Patara Beach, both of which are sandy and gently sloping. Details are available in the villa.


Dalaman Airport is some 1 hour 45 minutes drive. Transfers to and from can be arranged. Many charter and scheduled airlines fly directly from UK airports.

Car hire is not necessary, but can be arranged if needed, to see the sights further away.


The centre of Kalkan takes 3/5 minutes by taxi. All Kalkan is hilly, so the walk will take about 25 minutes. Kalkan is in the heart of the Lycian region and there are many historical sites close-by to visit. The ruins of Patara, still being excavated, and Xanthos, formerly the capital city of Lycia are a 30 minute drive.

Further Details:

Kalkan is sophisticated with a multitude of excellent harbour and roof top restaurants offering a high standard of culinary delights, together with a good selection of atmospheric blues and jazz bars. The village shops stay open until around midnight and are well stocked with interesting antiques, crafts, jewellers, carpets, clothing and leather bags. The narrow streets of the old town are ideal for an evening stroll. There are two banks with cash dispensers, as well the Post Office which usually offers the best exchange rate.
