The Turquoise Coast/Lycia region
Kalkan is a beautiful harbour resort surrounded by breathtaking scenery at the foot of the Taurus Mountains. The village retains an authentic Turkish feel with winding streets, colourful shops and an abundance of restaurants and bars. Many of the latter have roof terraces with stunning views of the mountains and bay where one can while away the hours.
On Thurday Kalkan has a market where you can purchase anything from fresh produce, spices, clothes and kitchenware.
Islamlar is a mountain village 20 minutes drive from Kalkan where you can enjoy the famous trout restaurants whilst taking in breathtaking views of Kalkan and beyond.
Kas, 25 minutes drive east of Kalkan, is a beautiful natural harbour town with winding streets and many shops and a market. Here you can go swimming with dolphins too.
Berzigan is a fascinating village sitting on the bed of an old lake above Kalkan where traditional farming is of much interest to visitors.
Other interesting local sights such as Lettoon, Xanthos, Tlos, Patara and the Saklikent Gorge are easily accessible for a days outing, and are well worth the effort.
Nearby Kaputas, 10 minutes by car or bus, is a dramatic white beach bordering a seductive turquoise sea (not for the fainthearted though as it has 200 steps!). The renowned Patara beach (20 km. long) is a 20 minute drive - home of protected turtles and noteable Roman remains. Kalkan has its own award-winning local beach.
Locality of our villa
Within approximately 5-10 minutes walk is the Kalkan Beach Club with small shingle beach, sun-beds, cafe, watersports, and water taxi to Kalkan harbour. Other local beaches include Villa Mahal, an acclaimed hotel with restaurant and beach club for both residents and non-residents. Local beaches include Kaputas, Kisla Beach, Mahal, Club Patara Prince, Palm Beach, Kalkan Harbour and Kalamar bay. Kisla, Mahal & Palm Beach offer a boat service across to Kalkan. Bob's cafe/minimarket is 2 minutes away and will deliver take-aways, water etc. The centre of Kalkan takes 5 minutes by car/taxi, or a walk of about half an hour. Patara Prince has a spa with a free car collect and return service. Palm Beach and Kalamar Beach both offer a free car collect and return service.
Watersports. All the beach clubs offer waterskiing, scuba diving and other water sports. Hang gliding is also now available locally.

"Immaculate, well equipped, spacious villa with fantstic views"
This was our first visit to Kalkan and definitely won't be the last ! Our group consisted of two families with teenagers and we found the villa well equipped and spacious with a secluded pool and fantastic views of Kalkan bay from the balconies. The villa is close to the beach club which is free to use so we popped out for a swim in the sea or to use the water sports most days. We found everything we needed at Bob's shop which is a short stroll away. There are only a handful of restaurants close to the villa so at night we mainly caught the water taxi into Kalkan where there is a huge choice of fabulous restaurants and some interesting boutique shops. As the water taxis finish around 9pm, we usually walked back to the villa along the 'low road' which was a great way to walk off some calories. The villa is about a 20 minute walk from the centre of Kalkan which is mostly flat or downhill and we all found this an enjoyable way to end the evening. I wouldn't however recommend this walk with a pram as most of the path is gravel. As there were 8 of us, we would have needed two taxis costing 40 lira which with the water taxi fee would have added up over a two week holiday. I would recommend Ali's boat trip which was a very relaxing day with fantastic food. Sue booked this for us when we booked the villa which was just as well as he was fully booked for the two weeks we were there. Also, Kalkan is very hilly so I would recommend flat shoes. The ceiling in the attic room is quite low so best for children but as it opens onto the roof terrace, not for very young children. We have stayed in a few villas over the years but none as well equipped as this; ample wardrobe space, fully equipped kitchen, 3 fridges and the water cooler by the pool really set it apart. The villa and gardens are also very well maintained by Sukru and his team with the pool cleaned on a daily basis - the photos don't do it justice.

"Villa is fantastic, views are breathtaking and Kalkan is wonderful."
An amazing villa, within a short walk of the Kalkan Beach Club. The water taxi across to Kalkan is great, especially in the early evening on your way out to Kalkan Town.
The organised trip that we went on, through Abi Travel to Saklikent Gorge, is a must. It costs £16 per person but is cheaper for children and includes journey to and from the Gorge in an open back Land Rover, a lovely lunch, sitting on the banks of the river and entrance into the Gorge. The optional 30 TL (£10 or so) which you can pay to go down the river on "Ringos" is well worth it. It was such a laugh and the 7 of us had a great time. This is also a Mud Bath to go in at the end of the river trip, which was good fun and the kids loved it.
All in all, the Villa is like "Home from Home" and you feel at home from the moment you arrive.
Kalkan town, is beautiful and some of the Restaurants are amazing (Doy Doys, Olive Garden and both Mussaka restaurants).
You do get hassled a little by people asking you to go into their restaurants, but a "No Thanks" is always accepted and they will always say "Thank you, Have a good evening" so is not too much of a problem,
Nothing to do with the Villa, but would be nice to be able to walk easily from Kisla in the evening into Kalkan. Part of the walkway out of Kalkan is completed, but the rest of the walk is un-developed and not advisable for children/older people. We did walk along the main road one the first night, but wouldn't recommend that !!
Hope you enjoy Kisla Han and Kalkan as much as we did.

"Villa Kisla Han Kalkan an Oasis"
I would recommend this villa as a holiday, it is is in Kas just outside Kalkan it is not possible to walk to Kalkan in the very hot weather; but there are taxis and a boat ferry. It is quiet and peaceful not really suitable for clubbing teenagers but it is suitable for couples, extended family and friends. The views from the villa are lovely and both Kas and Kalkan are not overy commercialised. Please be aware that Kalkan is very steep and it is a strenuous walk through the town in very hot weather. There are some lovely restaurants to choose from. I would recommmend hiring a car to explore the area especially the mountains, and Demre to visit the Church of St Nicholas. If you do hire a car you must have your driving licence with you in the vehicle at all times! We had a great time and the owners are very helpful and friendly. If you go independently I would recomment ABI travel for the airport transfers.
We are very pleased with this review. However, there is a very important factual error in the first line which should be corrected as it will confuse future guests as to our location. She states "It is is in Kas just outside Kalkan..." Kas is the next town 40 minutes away. It should read "It is in Kisla a suburb just outside Kalkan ...". To maintain your reputation we trust you will contact our guest to approve the change. Many thanks. Sue Hawkridge.
