The Turquoise Coast/Lycia region
Turkey's Mediterranean shore, called the Turquoise Coast, is nearly 1600 km (994 miles) long, scattered with beaches and sprinkled abundantly with classical cities turned to picturesque ruins.
The area enjoys a typical Mediterranean climate: endless sunny days in the summer and mild wetter days in the winter.
Average daily temperatures in July and August reach 32 degrees. Temperatures in May and October averaging a pleasant 24 degrees.
The average sea temperatures in August is 25 degrees but does not fall as quickly as the air temperature, Sea swimming is still possible into October/November with the temperature reluctant to fall below 23 degrees.
Kalkan is a picturesque hillside town that overlooks a sheltered bay and marina. A maze of narrow, cobbled streets - lined with old Turkish houses, craft shops, boutiques & abundant terrace restaurants - rise from the harbour to the village centre, where there are stunning views of the bay and mountain surrounds.
The town is a great base for day excursions to the ancient Lycian sites of the Xanthos Valley, which includes the ancient sites of Tlos, Xanthos, Letoon, and Patara.
All of the sites are easily accessible by car with a short detour off the main road or by dolmus that run regularly from the main square. Alternatively trips can be arranged locally through a number of agencies based in the town.
Why not escape the heat and visit Europe's second longest gorge, You can trek through the the cool waters of the gorge and explore its caves and waterfalls or just relax on the rivers edge and enjoy an al fresco lunch. Canoeing along the Xanthos River is another exhilarating way to spend the day. Again trips can be organised in the town. The excursion is geared towards fun rather than physical fitness and a day tour usually includes a stopover at a mud bath and a few hours of relaxation on Patara Beach.
Further activities available locally include horse riding and paragliding.
The sea around Kalkan provide some of the best venues for scuba diving along the Mediterranean. Dive centres are situated in both Kalkan and nearby Kas. Other "wet" sports available nearby are water skiing, river rafting and fishing.
Kalkan has a man-made pebble beach, at the eastern end of town, umbrellas and loungers are available for a small fee. Kaputas beach can be reached by a short ride by dolmus or taxi. Only 20 minutes away by dolmus is the famous 18 km Patara Beach, the longest and one of the most beautiful stretches of sand in Turkey. ( voted worlds best beach in a survey of 100 operators Sunday times 1998).
A weekly market visits Kalkan each Thursday where numerous bargains and local produce can be purchased. During your stay why not try a visit to a Turkish bath (hamam), there are a couple to try in Kalkan.

"Beautiful villa, amazing view."
Stayed for two weeks in this lovely villa. Kosk was and added bonus for sitting and watching the lights over in Kalkan. The villa is of a very high standard and has everything you could ever want - if you have children there is even a PS to keep them amused. Amazing views from all aspects. Our problem is that if we tell everyone how brilliant it is - it will be booked up next year!!! Honestly the photos don't do it justice - it is really lovely

"A Wonderful experience"
The villa exceeded our expectations and provided a superb base for our annual summer holiday. The villa is clean, well maintained, well appointed and had everything we needed. The air conditioning was a real blessing with temperatures in the mid forties. Location is superb, towards the top of the hill, with a larger than average plot. Views are simply stunning and you can't beat eating breakfast whilst looking out across the bay or having a drink and watching the sun set over the islands out in the bay!!! Kalkan itself has lots of good restaurants and bars to keep you entertained and the beach clubs and watersports are great for the daytime.

"Excellent accommodation and a view to die for"
The accommodation was lovely both inside and out. The accommodation has a lovely spot with views that have to be seen to be believed. We really loved the area, loads of restaurants and lovely jewellery shops and the beach clubs near by were brilliant. All of us said it was our best holiday and best accommodation - so we will be rebooking for next year now !!!!

We have recently returned from our holiday and we all had a fantastic time. Kalkan was a great destination and we will definitely go back. The villa was the perfect accommodation for our large group of 8. The views were fab and it has a perfect location to get the sun until it went down, having 3 levels meant you could always sit in the sun. I would book the villa again, already thinking about the next trip!

"Fantastic Honeymoon Getaway"
For a place to get away from the typical all-inclusive resort feel, Swallows Rest is a haven for those with a sense of adventure. Kalkan is a wonderful town for a tourist, but it is not a tourist town - that is what makes Swallows Rest such a great spot. The villa has all the modern amenities that you would want and with four bathrooms & three bedrooms (with five beds altogether) the amount of living space is more than enough for a couple or a family. We cannot say enough about the view on all three floors. It's just a five minute walk from a great beach club and if you don't want to pay for a taxi it's just a 20-30 minute walk from all the shops, markets and restaurants of Kalkan. The restaurants of Kalkan are in a league of their own with every restaurant having great starters, main courses and deserts. The day trips that one can take from Kalkan are also awesome whether you're looking for fun or historical sightseeing. All in all, Swallows Rest is a well maintained, spacious, and perfectly situated villa that was a pleasure to visit. I would highly reccomend it.
