Villa Zeytin Koru
Villa | 4 bedrooms | sleeps 8
Our extremely spacious and attractive Villa is situated on the hillside overlooking Kalamar Bay and enjoys stunning sea-views. Three of the bedrooms (two king sized doubles and a twin) are on the ground floor with direct access to the pool terraces. The spacious main living area and kitchen are on the first floor with a large shaded dining terrace with sea views and external steps down to the pool area. The villa is on a plot size of 800sqm.
The fourth double bedroom (king sized bed) occupies the whole of the top floor and has a large terrace with sea views and external steps to the dining terrace and pool area. All the bedrooms are en-suite (3 with showers 1 with bath plus shower) and large enough to accommodate a cot if required. There is a single sofa-bed in the lounge area, a small double sofa bed in the roof bedroom and a single chair bed in the twin room giving extra flexibility, each bedroom has iPod/iPhone docking stations. The lounge has iPod docking station CD player, SKY TV, DVD and a Nintendo Wii. The basement games room has air hockey, table football and multi gym. Outdoor table tennis.
The villa has it's own large backup/reserve water tank.
The large private swimming pool is attractively shaped and there is a separate children's pool.
Villa Zeytin Koru is very close to the Kalamar road so it is a fairly flat 15-20 minute walk along a well lit road to and from the top of the old town. This makes it possible to walk into the centre of Kalkan even in the height of summer and it is a pleasant stroll back after dinner without the need to take a taxi. There are many small bars and cafés along the road so you can stop for shade and refreshment or a night-cap if required! The sea-front and beach-club at Kalamar Bay are closer but the walk is obviously steeper, approx 5-10 minute down and slightly longer on the way back. If you visit the beach club they will provide complimentary transport back to the Villa to avoid the climb back up. There are also two well stocked mini-markets and several cafés/restaurants very close to the Villa (2-5 minute walk) so a car, although useful, is not essential. Airport transfers can be arranged on request at additional cost.
Our English manager provides a meet and greet service on arrival at the Villa and acts as a local contact in case of any problems or queries during your stay.

The Turquoise Coast/Lycia region
Kalkan is located on the Gulf of Antalya, an inlet of the Mediterranean on the south-west coast of Turkey. This area is famous for the beautiful coastline and beaches, warm seas and historical sites. There has been a successful local campaign to “keep Kalkan special” and although it has certainly grown since our initial stay in 1992 it retains much of the original ambience. This is a sophisticated resort and prices are often a little higher than elsewhere in Turkey although still reasonable by UK standards. Standards of food and service are particularly high and the multitude of restaurants generally offer excellent value for money. Those of you who have visited Turkey before will have experienced the warmth and friendliness of Turkish people and we have found the people of Kalkan to be particularly hospitable. Kalkan is generally quiet and sleepy in the heat of the day but comes to life in the evening when temperatures are more comfortable for strolling the narrow streets. There are many small bars and cafés in which to enjoy a quiet drink before or after dinner and an abundance of small shops to explore.
Ancient sites at Xanthos, Letoon,Tlos, Pinara, Arycanda, Telmessos and Patara.
Beautiful sandy beaches at Kaputas and Patara.
Several Beach Clubs (Kalamar Bay, Mahal, Palm Beach and Indigo)
Diving Club at Kalamar Bay
Daily boat trips from Kalkan Harbour
Walks and treks (close to the Lycian Way)
Saklikent Gorge (walking, tubing and canoeing)
Paracending, Sea Kayaking, White water rafting, Canyoning, Water sports etc.......
Villages of Berzigan and Islamlar.

"Great Villa and Perfect Location!!"
This was our third visit to Kalkan and our third villa and this was the first one that we would return to. Although our previous villas were more modern, Villa Zeytin Koru was a real home from home ex… More

"Great family villa"
Celebrated my 50th birthday with my wife, 3 children (aged 18 to 24) and parents (in their 70's). After a slight problem with lack of hot water at the start of the holiday we all had a fantastic time and would definitely recommend this villa. Brilliant pool, great for lazing around during the day. In the evenings we alternated eating out in Kalkan and staying at the villa where where we enjoyed two excellent barbeques sitting outside watching the sun go down. Bedrooms are all good sizes and the air conditioning is particularly good. Walk to the old town is 15 to 20 minutes but we all enjoyed the exercise. The only slightly frustrating issue was that watching SKY TV in the evenings was very difficult because the signal kept breaking up. Apart from that a perfect week.
Many thanks for taking the time to provide feedback without this we couldn't react and sort problems out.. I believe the hot water situation is now resolved (and the gardener now knows not to unplug the backup pump!) the villa Sky system relies on the internet connection and following the feedback we have decided to take advantage of the new 35meg speed upgrade, that should resolve any bandwidth issues and allow multiple internet sessions without degrading the Sky service.
Hope you had a great 50th and celebrated in style and will consider our villa for any future visits.

"Spacious and Comfortable villa in a great location for a lovely family holiday"
This is a great villa for a family holiday.
Good location and views from the terraces. Very spacious with 4 double rooms (all en-suite). Great pool.
Owners very thoughtful with information/service provided and how the villa is equipped etc.!
Would definitely recommend this villa and go again. Kalkan is a great location too! With great restaurants etc.
Many thanks for taking the time to review, we are very pleased that you and your whole extended family enjoyed the holiday and hope that you will return in the future... as they say, 'Kalkan, no one visits just once'

"Stunning villa in a stunning town!"
Our fourth consecutive year in Kalkan and our second consecutive year in villa Zeytin Koru, and last year's review is also on this site. Amazingly our holiday and the villa were even better this year. The villa now benefits from a new kitchen and it's worth repeating just how good the pool is. Tracy, who manages the Villa, was her usual very welcoming, friendly and helpful self.
The two local cafe bars (in particular Cafe Aqua and owner Yusuf and his brother) are excellent and the bar at the Elixir Hotel (only another two minutes walk) is a brilliant place to meet other people. Ali, the bar manager, is very friendly, speaks excellent English - and makes cocktails to die for!
This year we discovered the Ekin Han hotel and ended up eating there on 4 occasions. It is less than 5 minutes from the villa (exit left from the villa up to the Kalamar Road and turn left). The food, service and view are all excellent and it's every bit as good as any restaurant in Kalkan town.
Another absolutely great holiday and many thanks to Stuart and Cath for renting out their wonderful villa.
Many thanks for taking the time to write a review, we really appreciate getting feedback, it is important to us as we try to improve and cater for all, also great to read reviews of the local restaurants cafes and bars. We are so pleased you had a great time and hope you will return again in the future.

"An absolute gem!"
We travelled as a family group: myself, two daughters and their husband/partner and my 3 year old grandson. The whole booking process was so easy and Stuart, the owner, was so helpful and answered all queries courteously and promptly, and arranged our transfers to and from Dalaman airport.
The villa was in an ideal location, in a quiet area, a pleasant walk from the town, although we did indulge in taxis back as it was so hot.
The pool was stunning, and deep enough for the boys to dive in safely and much fun was had in retrieving items from the bottom. The childrens pool was perfect for my Grandson, although he did come in the 'big boys pool' due to the easy access via the steps and enjoyed it immensely.
Kalkan itself is an ideal destination with many excellent restaurants and lovely shops and the locals are very friendly and cannot do enough for you.
The villa was so well equiped we lacked for nothing, even down to tiny details such as socket adaptors and buggies. Tracy, the manager, was brilliant and rapidly sorted a problem with internet access. The boys really appreciated the Sky Sports for the cricket and golf, and my Grandson for his favourite childrens programmes for the bedtime wind down!
I just happened to e-mail Stuart about whether there was a gate at the top of the basement steps and he arranged for this to be done prior to our arrival!! That is exemplary customer service!!
We have had a perfect holiday and we would definately come again! Book with confidence!
Thankyou for taking the time to write such a nice review. We are so pleased that we were able to contribute to a wonderful holiday in Villa Zeytin Koru. It was a pleasure having such lovely guests stay in our villa and we hope to see you again.

"Beautiful villa with excellent pool and shady areas"
The villa is everything it says it is, very comfortable and spacious. All rooms feel airy. Good location in Kalamar with lovely cafes very nearby. A bit of a walk to town but manageable and a taxi on the way back is easy and does not cost much. Kalamar Beach Club is great and the free lift back to the villa is a great bonus. The sea there is amazing and its easy to spend the day there.
Many thanks for taking the time to respond, feedback is how we know what we are doing is appreciated.

"Fantastic Villa, highly recommended"
We booked Villa Zeytin Koru as a party of 8 people - a 2 and a 4 year old, 14 year old and other family members and it was extremely suitable for everyone. The villa is fantastic, it has the most lovely view of the sea from the outside eating area just off the lounge. This was where we spent most of the time when sitting as it had a great canopy to give you a bit of a rest from the Turkish sun!
I really can not fault the villa - it was big, spotlessly clean, the beds were really comfortable, extremley well equipped even to the point of having some plastic plates and bowls for my 2 year old to use... there was a Wii, dvd player, Sky tv, toys, books, magazines - the most well equipped villa I have stayed in.
The pool was fantastic, a really good size with lots of sunbeds and cleaned everyday. There are a few pool toys also which the children appreciated playing with.
Tracy who looks after you in the resort is English and brilliant, extremely helpful and it's peace of mind to know someone is there should you need anything in an emergency.
It took about 20 minutes to walk into Kalkan, the town is stunning by the harbour, so pretty with amazing restaurants - the food was top quality. We often caught a taxi back as it's easier coming down the hill than walking back with pushchairs! ;-)
The booking procedure was also faultless and Stuart was very informative from the very start of the booking with information to the end.
You won't be dissapointed if you stay at this villa and we are rather fussy!
Many thanks for taking the time to write a review, getting feedback is really important to us as we try to improve and cater for all. We are so pleased you had a great time and hope you will return.

"Luxury and location at a great price"
Luxurious villa, all ensuite and all mod cons within walking distance of Kalkan centre and lots of even closer bars and restaurants. Amazing attention to detail to make guests stay enjoyable from wi-fi to detailed guidance on every aspect of the villa and resort. Lots of local contacts and recommendations. Fantastic
Many thanks for taking the time to provide a review, it's really important to us that guests enjoy their stay and we are delighted when we receive positive feedback.

"Exceptionally spacious and well kitted out villa with wonderful large private pool."
Great villa with larger than average pool in an ideal location. Less than 5 minutes to two Cafe Bars and local shops, and Kalkan town only 20 minutes walk. Villa benefits from English manager whose husband has his own boat Zeus and a day out on that is an absolute must. The owner pays great attention to detail and nothing is overlooked. All-in-all an absolutely great holiday.
Many thanks for taking the time to review our villa, really pleased you had a great time in Kalkan (and in our villa). As a quick update I have just returned from the villa where I was overseeing the installation of the new kitchen and a few other minor upgrades ready for 2013!
