The Turquoise Coast/Lycia region
If this is your first trip to Kalkan, or to Turkey you will not be disappointed. This area of Turkey, despite the growth of tourism, remains unspoilt, with characteristic turquoise sea and a coastline that boasts some beautiful sandy beaches and islands with coves and caves that make them ideal for boat trips, snorkelling and relaxed tranquil days. There are plenty of historical and interesting places to visit, such as the Myra rock tombs, Patara amphitheatre and ancient relics and the sunken city of Kekova.
There are some excellent sandy beaches near to Kalkan; Patara is a long sandy beach, home to nesting turtles and boasting some spectacular waves providing great fun for all. There is a cafe (cash only), shower and toilet facilities and sunbed/parasol hire.
Kaputas beach is a sandy cove only a 5 minute taxi drive from Kalkan. This has no facilities although parasols can be hired.
Kalkan has developed from a small fishing village into a charming resort which benefits from quaint streets draped in bourgainvilla, teaming with small craft shops, friendly bars and excellent restaurants providing delicious food and spectacular rooftop views across the bay.
During the day, local beach clubs provide a free taxi service to and from their premises where you can hire a sunbed, enjoy the water sports and tasty lunch, snacks and drinks.
The people of Kalkan are friendly, polite and good humoured; you will not feel hassled or pushed into buying but do try your hand at a bit of bartering.
Kalkan market takes place every Thursday on the main road into Kalkan town centre from the villa. You can buy clothes, spices, Turkish Delight, homeware and fresh fruit and veg here all at bargain prices.
The main supermarkets (Yali and Migros) are a 5 minute walk from the villa and provide almost everything that you will need.

Stayed with friends last year and had a fantastic week. Very high standard of furnishings, love the fact you can order meze from the restaurant next door and have it delivered to the terrace. Very qui… More
Thank you Kirsty for such a lovely review. Your mind must be drifting to holiday times.

Once again, our stay in Villa Zarif was absolutely wonderful. It truly is a place to chill out and enjoy the spectacular views from the roof top terrace. It takes some beating! As ever, Julie and Richard are friendly and accomodating and despite us being return customers, they obviously don't get complacent. If you want to enjoy your very own piece of paradise- then certainly give this villa a go.

We had a fantastic time in Kalkan and cannot wait to return! The villa was great and there was everything we needed in it! The information pack provided was so helpful and allowed us to settle straight in and just get on with our holiday without wondering where things were, how to work everything, etc. The pool was great and when at the villa we were hardly ever out of it! None of us can think of one way tthat the villa could be improved! We loved the roof top terrace and enjoyed our pre-dinner wine there as we waited for the younger female members of our party to get ready for the evening! Having an ensuite to each bedroom also meant that we were all able to get showered at the same time and not waste time. The person who oversaw the villa was hepful and the cleaners were very efficient mid stay and did a very thorough job. Everyone was so friendly!
The only downside to our holiday was our arrival back in the UK and our return to work!! Thanks so much for renting us your beautiful villa! We really hope to return.

"Meet all our needs for our extended family holiday"
This was the first time we had booked a vila direct with the owners and would not hesitate to do it again as our experience was so good. The villa is approx 10-15min walk from the centre of Kalkan with all its restaurants and shops. It is a very hilly walk but taxis can be arranged easily and cost around £4 each way if the walk proves too difficult. The villa is well equipped, very clean and comfortable with a good pool which was very much enjoyed by our 3 young grandchildren. The owners were very helpful during the booking process and arranged the transfer from Dalaman airport with a local taxi driver who also looks after the villa and proved so helpful in organising and advising anything we needed. We had an excellent holiday in Villa Zarif and would not hesitate in recommending this villa for a wonderful holiday in wonderful Kalkan. This is really a 3 bedroom villa as the top bedroom/ playstation room which has a sofa bed does not have any air conditioning and in our opinion would be too hot to sleep in during the summer months. In all other aspects the villa met all our needs and expectations.

"relaxing and comfortable"
thoroughly enjoyed our stay at villa zarif..perfect situation to benefit from peaceful surroundings yet close to the village and supermarket nearby
24 Nov 2011
A fabulous holiday from start to finish. The owners were friendly and great to deal with. Burhan, the local chap, struck the right balance of being friendly and helpful without being too pushy. Kalkan is a delight with some wonderful restaurants and a variety of authentic shops to wander in and out of. The standard of the villa was as described and the photographs were a true reflection of the luxourious feel of the place. The pool area and gardens were well maintained and although there is a villa to the back and side of the property, they are situated in such a way that doesn't make you feel like you are overlooked. The roof terrace with it's panoramic views of both the mountains and the bay is the perfect place to relax with a good book and glass of wine. We'll definately be back!!

"Very relaxing place, stunning roof terrace and master suit"
Very nice villa and conscientiousness owner who listened to our feedback on a couple of minor improvements required.
Would highly recommend for 4 adults 2 children max - a bit small for 6 adults.
Pictures are an honest reflection of the villa. Other than the pool which is a little overlooked.
