Kalkan nestles in a beautiful bay of the Mediterranean Sea on Turkey's stunning Turquoise Coast, with the Taurus Mountains as its backdrop. The weather during the summer season is dry and warm.
The Autumn and Spring months are comfortable times to explore the many archaeological sites in the area, including the nearby ruins of Xanthos, Patara and Letoon, the Acropolis of Tlos, the rock tombs at Myra, and the crusaders' castle and sunken city of Kekova-Simena.
From November until April the weather is less predictable but there is still a lot of sunshine and the maximum daytime temperature is rarely below 15° C ( 59° F).
Available activities include exploring the ancient Lycian Way (which passes 100m from Villa Esinti), a cooling trek through Saklikent Gorge, horse riding on Patara Beach or sea kayaking at Kekova.
Once a simple fishing village, Kalkan has developed sensitively into a charming and sophisticated resort. Kalkan's warm but relaxed welcome encourages visitors to return year after year and many regard it as their second home. The narrow, cobbled streets leading down to the harbour are lined with shops selling interesting antiques, crafts, jewellery, clothing and accessories late into the evening, and a weekly market is held on Thursdays. A range of bars refreshes the pre-dinner amble around the village and offers stylish and atmospheric jazz and blues later in the evening.
Kalkan is renowned above all for its amazing selection of restaurants, offering great value in Turkish, Mediterranean and international cuisine, including wonderful fresh seafood. Many are on rooftops with spectacular views over the bay; others give the opportunity to watch the world go by around the harbour or in quiet side streets. In addition to the food, they cater for a wide variety of musical tastes, including classical, jazz and traditional Turkish music.
Kalkan has a safe pebble beach and several beach clubs with bars, restaurants, sea bathing and water sports. Sandy beaches nearby are accessible by dolmus (local bus) or water taxi. A 10 minute journey takes you to stunning Kaputas Beach, dramatically positioned at the foot of a ravine. To the west of Kalkan, unspoilt Patara Beach, voted one of the top beaches in the world by Times Online - Best of 2005, boasts seven miles of soft golden sand and the evocative ruins of a fine city protruding from the encroaching dunes. Daily boat trips from Kalkan visit the beaches and outlying islands from £10 per head, lunch included, and all sizes of boats can be chartered for exclusive use.
Diving, water sports, self-drive boat hire, bar and restaurant are available at the local Kalamar Beach Club, which is 5-10 minutes walk from Villa Esinti.
The Kulube Hotel, at the water's edge just 5 minutes walk away, welcomes non-residents who wish to use its bar, restaurant and leisure facilities. There are a few bars, restaurants and shops within 10 minutes' walk and it is 20-25 minutes' scenic walk from Villa Esinti to Kalkan village centre, passing more shops, bars and restaurants along the way. Supermarkets, a post office, banks with ATMs, internet cafes and telephone bureaux, doctors, chemists and dentists can all be found in the village.
There are always plenty of taxis available in the village for the return journey and you will find telephone numbers in the villa if you wish to call a taxi to pick you up. Our agents can arrange for good quality, air-conditioned hire cars to be delivered to you, from about £25 per day.
