We own one villa in Kalkan and have absolutely no connection with any other rental company or holiday accommodation in or around Kalkan - there is only one Villa Sienna, so you've already found the best value for money !
Our aim is to make Villa Sienna a special holiday home equipped and furnished to the highest standard. Kalkan and its surrounding area is a wonderful holiday location, with so much to offer - superb restaurants, shops and bars, stunning unspoilt beaches, beautiful ancient historical sites, a range of water sports, wonderful climate, friendly locals and excellent service to name but a few.
We chose Villa Sienna because it is located far enough away from the main town to provide us the peace and tranquillity we want from a villa holiday but near enough so that we can leave the car behind when going out in the evening.
The Turquoise Coast/Lycia region
Kalkan is located on the Turkish Mediterranean coast which is well known for its crystal clear water and mountain backdrops, the scenery is breathtaking. It is known as the “Turquoise Coast” or the Turkish Riviera.
Windsurfing, water-skiing, banana boat rides, parasailing, jet-skiing, pedaloes & scuba diving are all available down at the beach clubs or harbour.
Take a boat trip to chill and relax around the bays and islands of Kalkan, lunch is served onboard, enjoy plenty of swimming and lots of fun.
Our agent will be more than happy to organise tickets for excursions, such as jeep safaris driving up to the mountains for an unforgettable day of adventure and excitement.
Or visit Saklikent, Tlos & Yakapark which is a wonderful way to escape the searing summer heat of the coast, this tour will take you into the Taurus mountain range with its fresh springs cascading to the plain below.
Scuba diving is also available as Kalkan has diving schools offering day trips and PADI open water courses for those looking to establish themselves as a certified diver. Horse riding is available on the beautiful beach at Patara.
Kayaköy is the ghost village worth a visit, after the inhabitants left the village in 1922 to return to Greek soil, the houses, numbering about 3500, where left empty and deserted.
The UNESCO world heritage site of Xanthos was Lycia's capital city for much of it's history and the ruins of the principal cities of Tlos, Myra, Pinara and Partara, all close to Kalkan and attract visitors from all over the world with ruins dating back over 2000 years.
Kalkan is a Mediterranean harbour village with buildings covered in bougainvillea, winding cobbled streets, roof terraces, fabulous restaurants and bars. A picturesque harbour with a recently extended shingle beach more than adequate for swimming and sunbathing and stunning sandy beaches nearby. Kalkans beach is approximately 15-20 minutes walk from Villa Sienna. A dolmus (shared local mini-bus) from the bus station takes 10 minutes to reach Kaputas Beach, a lovely sandy beach perched at the foot of a ravine. To the west is Patara Beach, regularly featured in lists of the top 10 most beautiful and undiscovered beaches in the world and its 18km of fine sand makes it easy to see why. Patara contains many ancient ruins as well as being the birthplace of St Nicholas. The whole beach is a protected area due to the turtles that nest there. There are also several beach clubs in Kalkan with secluded bathing and water sports. There are many ancient sites in the immediate vicinity including Xanthos, Letoon, Pinara, Tlos and Patara.
As a village, Kalkan is far more sophisticated than the average holiday resort and is situated on the Turkish Riviera. It is packed with arguably the best selection of quality restaurants outside Istanbul and those who have discovered this Mediterranean jewel return again and again. One of Kalkans biggest assets is the warm welcome you will receive from the locals, ask any previous visitors and they will tell you all about the friendliness of the people, in the cafes, restaurants and in the village itself.
By daytime Kalkan is very quiet and peaceful. Stroll around the village, look around the small interesting shops, little carpet bazaars and arty jewellery shops and enjoy a glass of apple tea with the local shopkeepers.
Take a cruise aboard a gullet, which takes you over the clear blue waters for which this enchanting area of Turkey is renowned and offers great value for money. Charter a boat privately directly with the crew for the day or half a day, at great prices down at the harbour.
By night, Kalkan is lit up with coloured lanterns displayed outside the numerous shops that line the quaint cobbled streets. As well as the variety of quality eating places on offer there are outdoor cafes and bars catering for varied musical tastes. It is a safe low key environment and families with children and teenagers love Kalkan. The cafes and restaurants cook all food from fresh, so any dietary requirements or fussy eaters will have no problems. All the restaurants & bars welcome children of any age and there are a couple of small music bars with dance floors, for all ages. You can sit cross legged on killims or floor cushions and sample Turkish dishes in the traditional way or indulge in an orgy of seafood in one of the smart waterfront restaurants. There is a taxi rank down in the town, which after a large evening meal you may want to use to go back to the villa ! It should cost you around 10 TL.
Kalkan is a superb place for holidaymakers that do not want to visit large commercialised holiday resorts, as Kalkan consists of mostly privately owned villas, private apartments, small hotels & pensions. You will not find fast food chains, time-share touts or large high-rise hotels, mainly locally owned businesses who take pride in the service they offer. Kalkan offers a friendly & warm Turkish welcome with probably a need for low-heeled footwear, as part of the charm of Kalkan is its winding hilly cobbled streets. Leave your high heels at home and relax at one of Kalkans many restaurants, even the more exclusive do not have a dress code. English is mainly spoken and understood by most people in Kalkan.
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 by protecting its distinctive Ottoman Greek architecture. Very strict building codes keep the town small and architecturally blended with the historic heart of the town known as "Old Kalkan". 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.
