About this location
The Turkish Mediterranean Coast region
Kalkan village is a comfortable 15 minute stroll (less than 5 minutes by car, scooter or dolmus). Kaputas Beach, with its pretty sandy cove, is less than 8km from the villa. Patara Beach and it's Lycian ruins are 15km from the villa. The beautiful village of Bezirgan is located 17km from the villa and the journey provides for some amazing views. Kas, with its pretty harbour, Lycian and Hellenic period ruins and easy ferry access to the Greek island of Kastelorizo is 22km from the villa.
Beaches and Beach Clubs
The Kalamar Bay Beach Club is located within a 5 to 10 minute walk of the villa and offers sun loungers, parasols and all kinds of water activities for kids and adults. Kalkan has a pretty, crescent shaped pebble beach in addition to several other public beach clubs. Kaputas beach and Patara beach are easily reached by car or local mini-bus.
If you enjoy a day on the water why not take a gulet cruise from Kalkan harbor? Private charter cruises can be arranged by talking with the individual boat captains at the harbor while larger, group excursions depart from the harbor on a regular basis. Other interesting day trips include a visit to Butterfly Valley while a visit to Saklikent Gorge, followed by a traditional Ottoman-style lunch served on cushioned platforms that overlook the streams below, is a must.
Families with Children
Kalkan is very family oriented and most restaurants can easily accommodate families with young children. Several small playgrounds are located near the villa. A visit to the Thursday market is a wonderful family outing and is a great place to pick-up souvenirs. We recommend that families consider renting a car for part or all of their stay at the villa in order to more fully explore the area.
The sea, Kalamar Bay Beach Club and the Kalkan Dive Center are a 5 minute downhill walk from the villa, and during the summer, complimentary shuttle buses run throughout the day from the road above the villa down to the Kalamar sea front. For a small fee, the Kalamar Beach Club provides water-side sun loungers, parasols, adult and children's water activities as well as an excellent sea-side restaurant offering Turkish and English menu choices and ice cold drinks.
Cafe Vita is a 5 minute walk from the villa towards Kalkan and offers wonderful Turkish and Continental breakfast, lunch and dinner options and many tourists and locals are seen reading the morning newspaper here as they enjoy their tea or coffee. A small family-run mini-market is located next to Cafe Vita selling fresh breads and everyday supplies.
The lovely village of Kalkan is only a 15 minute walk or less than 5 minutes by car from the villa, and water taxis and shuttle buses run frequently between Kalamar Bay and Kalkan during the daytime in summer. Kalkan offers many excellent and well-renowned Turkish and International restaurants, enticing shops, a picturesque harbour and many outdoor cafes that take advantage of the incredible vistas that the village offers. Watch the sunset from the little harbour or stroll through Kalkan's cobbled streets with whitewashed, shuttered Ottoman buildings - either way, you won't be disappointed.

"Wonderful and very child friendly"
We had a wonderful time in Kalkan and its was a huge relief to find it was so child friendly for our two year old. The owners provided us with a travel cot, had plastic ware and a high chair and even… More
Thank you for your review and we are glad to hear that the villa worked so well for your family. Kalkan is a very safe and family oriented town and we have made every effort to make the villa family friendly, even for younger children. The burglary was very unfortunate and we are thankful that your personal items were in the safe. We have subsequently installed deadbolt locks to all doors and windows on both the ground and first floors and we are confident that this will reduce the potential of this happening again. We are glad that this did not spoil your holiday and we look forward to welcoming you back to the villa in future.
