Villa in Kalkan, Mediterranean coast, Turkey. Superb views. 15 minute stroll to town & beach • Modern furnishings • Private surroundings

This property was completely renovated in spring 2015, Villa Sapphire is an elegant four bedroom holiday villa overlooking the charming Turkish town of Kalkan.

Nestled in the Mediterranean hillside, the villa has a wonderful view of Kalkan Bay. Combining a clean and modern design with its idyllic location, Villa Sapphire is only a fifteen minute stroll or five minute drive to the winding, cobbled streets of Kalkan.

Villa Sapphire enjoys totally private surroundings. Unlike many others on the hillside, the villa has no overlooking neighbours and no buildings directly in front of it, providing uninterrupted views from all levels and is completely enclosed with stone walls and a gate.

Villa Sapphire is bright and spacious - sunlight pours in from sunrise to sunset. Comfortably sleeping eight people, it has been designed and built for families and groups. Its broad open-plan living room and kitchen area opens out onto the swimming pool terrace - simply slide away the glass doors to create a huge open space.

With two roof terraces, the sunset is a must at Villa Sapphire. Enjoy a barbecue in the evening and then sink into your rooftop spa bath to watch the spectacle unfold.

Villa Sapphire, Kalkan Turkey... Exceptional.

  • 5 of 5

The villa has been fantastic, exceptional value for money when we actually work out just how much time we have spent literally at the villa. So much to do, weather has been superb everyday with the outdoor area at the villa perfect for taking full advantage with its so many sun and shade areas allowing each person to do as they please. Whether lying on a sun bed in the constant all day long sunshine, sitting at the many shaded table areas or chilling reading book on the hammocks (like having two it saves the squabbling).

Then there is the infinity pool with its fantastic views even better.

Been here almost two weeks (flown by) and I still enjoy the simple task of swimming to the front of the infinity pool and just admiring the stunning views.

I am so sorry to have to tell you this, but I didn't think your villa could be beaten as our No.1 favourite thing on holiday, but I'm affraid to say it has. Kalkan old town with its shops, bars and restaurants is a pure delight. Heading down each evening and deciding which fantastic restaurant to eat at tonight has been the best part of the holiday by miles. The people are all friendly and speak very good English (good job as my Turkish requires more practise, something I intend to come back and work on), the food superb and so many excellent choices for all the variations a young family need.

We had trips out to Oludeniz, Gocek and Kas, none of them are even remotely close to Kalkan Old Town in character or choice, we now realise that the best place we visited is a £2.50 taxi ride away from the villa. Next time, airport transfers and taxi's, who needs a hire car when the best around is right in front of your eyes... Literally.

Yusuf is fantastic, round most days always checking if we have everything we need, always happy to help, again it's the little things that make it special.

Normally whilst you don't want the holiday to end it's also nice to go home, but I honestly think we could stay here. You have a fantastic villa, with outrageous views of Kalkan bay, best place we have been lucky enough to visit. Not a single sight of trouble, everyone is so pleased to see you and incredibly helpful. The food is incredible and sunshine perfect.

Would we come back to Turkey... Absolutely. Would we come back to your villa and Kalkan.. Definitely. Just a massive thank you for sharing your perfect holiday home and Kalkan with us.

Piece of paradise

  • 5 of 5

Villa Saphire is simply beautiful. From the location to the view and everything in between it really can't be faulted. The interior and exterior is quite luxurious and is the perfect place to put your feet up and relax. The town of Kalkan is full of excellent shops and restaurants and there is lots to do in the surrounding areas so it is worthwhile leaving the pool for a little while!

From the Owner

We fell in love with Kalkan on our first visit. It has everything to offer and is a charming little olde-worlde town without mass tourism. There are some beautiful beaches and the harbour boasts a great range of bars and restaurants. There really is something for everyone here. The area is easily accessible from Dalaman airport.

Activity and Interests

Nearest Airport : Dalaman at 75 Miles Nearest Barpub : Kalkan at 0.5 Miles Nearest Ferry : Kas at 20 Miles Nearest Restaurant : Kalkan at 0.5 Miles Nearest Beach : Kalkan at 1 Miles


15 minute walk or 5 minute drive to Kalkan pebble beach.

10 minute drive east to Kaputas golden sand beach.

15 minute drive west to Patara golden sand beach.

There are several beach clubs in Kalkan, some which provide free pick up and drop off service.


The closest airport is Dalaman. The journey from Dalaman to Kalkan takes approximately 1 1/2 hours.


Kas - The charming and friendly upmarket resort of Kas is just a 1/2hr drive from Kalkan, along one of the most dramatic and beautiful coastal roads in the Mediterranean. Cradled by the Taurus Mountains, with over 300 days of sunshine, very low humidity, and warm crystal clear unpolluted sea, modern day Kas, with its cobbled streets, is built on the ancient site of Antiphellos.With its own amphitheatre, and close to numerous historic and unspoilt areas of natural beauty.

Further Details:

There are many places of natural beauty and historical interest to visit within easy reach; the Lycian Way; (which, according to the Sunday Times is one of the ten most beautiful long distance hikes of the world); Saklikent Gorge; Kekova Sunken City; Tlos; Xanthos; Letoon; Pinara and of course to the west, the magnificent beach of Patara with a sparkling length of pale golden sand that stretches for 18 miles! Take a drive into the mountains and you discover a lush region of lakes and streams, where you can feast on fresh trout in the midst of stunning scenery. With the absence of mass tourism the whole region remains unspoiled and is dotted with villages where time has stood still.
