The Turkish Mediterranean Coast region
A small peaceful Mediterranean resort and fishing town on the beautiful turquoise Coast of Turkey, Kalkan has not been touched by mass tourism. More sophisticated than the usual resort town, Kalkan appeals to travellers looking for more than a 'sun and sea' holiday. Because of its charm kalkan has a growing number of perennial visitors who say the town is the only holiday destination they would choose to visit repeatedly.
There is simply no other town quite like Kalkan along Turkey's coast. Kalkan curls snugly around the ancient harbour sheltered at the foot of the towering Taurus Mountains. The town overlooks a beautiful bay in which islands seem to magically float upon a shimmering sea. Narrow streets twist down to the harbour through the historic town and are lined with listed whitewashed villas with shuttered windows situated alongside small local specialty shops and restaurants. Overhead hang original ornately carved Ottoman timber balconies garlanded with brilliantly coloured bougainvillea cascading to the streets below.
It is a very special place. Not only is Kalkan beautiful, but unlike other Turkish coastal resort towns Kalkan's main economy is tourism and therefore its citizens put much pride and effort into the town's historic preservation. Because of this Kalkan has retained the texture of its history with its distinctive Greek architecture (it was once a Greek and Turkish fishing village). Very strict building codes keep the town small and architecturally blended with the historic heart of the town known as 'Old Kalkan'.
Besides the famous 'kalkan Style' historic architecture, the many excellent restaurants of Kalkan contribute to the special atmosphere of the resort. Good dining has always been a way of life in Kalkan. In fact, Kalkan is said to have the highest number of restaurants and bars per inhabitant or square metre on the Turkish coast. Additionally, Kalkan is especially renowned for its numerous roof-top terrace restaurants and bars which offer a wonderful view of the town, sea and stars. You can also sit at one of many fine harbour-side restaurants and watch the fishermen leave early in the morning as you tuck in your breakfast, or see them return with the day's catch in the evening.
Kalkan is a small town (of only a few thousand) and this creates a wonderful intimate feeling. But do not let its size to mislead you ! There is plenty to do in and around Kalkan. During the day the town is surprisingly empty as most guests choose to swim or explore the multitude of beautiful ancient Lycian and natural sites of the area. However, everything changes in the evening when Kalkan bursts alive for a long, festive night.
Kalkan has many special qualities, but without doubt it is the people of the resort who make the town extra special. The people of Kalkan happily welcome you, and you may at first be surprised by the universal friendliness within the town. It is absolutely genuine. warm Turkish hospitality and friendliness is the basis of life here and the people of Kalkan sincerely enjoy getting to know their guests. So do not hesitate to accept one of the many tulip-shaped glasses of 'cay' (tea) you will be offered while you ample along Kalkan's winding streets. You will not be hassled while you are a guest of kalkan - the town is hassle free and is proud to be so. You will find a mixed population here, consisting mainly of locals, some Turks who own businesses, as well as a small number of well-educated foreigners who have settled in the town.
About the Islamar area
Islamlar village (Bodamya or Bodamia) in Greek times is a wonderfully lush area in the Taurus Mountains; the local industries are olive growing and growing grapes for wine. Also renowned for its fresh water trout farms. The village stretches up the verdant mountainside, through thick forestation; the result of plentiful supply of fresh water. Sleepy and relaxed, the pace of life has probably barely changed in a hundred years or more. Why rush around when it means you'd miss the view - and the chance to catch up with what's going on with your friends and neighbours?
Together with the local villagers we are delighted to provide an opportunity for guests to appreciate this, stunning and unusual style of holiday. Islamlar itself consists of a rambling collection of wonderful old houses, a Mosque, a cay (tea) garden and a bakery, where the flour is still ground between stone using natural water power – an amazing sight.
The men of the village will extend you a warm welcome in the cay garden, where endless hours are spent putting the world to rights. Islamlar is a simple village set in the mountains with spectacular views down to Kalkan and Patara beach in the distance. Kalkan is fifteen minutes drive and the Mediterranean’s longest sandy beach – Patara is thirty-five minutes drive away.
There are some great walking paths surrounding the villa or drive around exploring the stunning Taurus mountain range. The mountainside is incredibly green, thanks to the plentiful supply of mountain water and the (somewhat) cooler temperatures here. In the heat of the summer, the fresh mountain air makes the heat a little more bearable. In early and late season, the cooler temperatures make the area ideal for those who enjoy walking or exploring.
As the villa is close to parts of the famous Lycian Way, it is a natural choice for walkers. The area is renowned for its trout restaurants. These simple constructions provide wonderful views down the valley and have provided us with some of the most enjoyable meals we have experienced in Turkey. Please do not feel by this we mean the fare is extravagant. Menus are simple and absolutely fresh, usually consisting of salads, goats cheese, a few local mezze, delicious fresh trout or chicken, followed by fresh fruit. It may seem strange to describe this fare as memorable, but the combination of the natural tastes – completely free of chemicals – the sound of the mountain streams and the magnificent scenery just cannot fail to impress.
Our Favourite is Bodamya just a few minutes stroll down the road, they will also deliver if you feel you can’t leave your sun bed.
Should you want for something a little more sophisticated the restaurants (and cafés, bars, shops and beach clubs) of Kalkan are just fifteen minutes drive. It is possible to arrange a taxi one way or both, ensuring that you will never feel too remote in your peaceful haven.
In short an idillic, peaceful and scenic mountain region, a short distance from the more cosmopolitan attractions of the coast, and an ideal base from which to explore the whole Lycian Turquoise coastal area.
