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 and table football.
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.
