The Turkish Mediterranean Coast region
The historic town of Kalkan is an enchanting place and one of the most beautiful locations along Turkey's s Lycian Coast. With the complete absence of mass tourism, Kalkan remains a charming and unspoiled haven , brilliant blue crystal-clear sea, historic architecture, ancient history and warm traditional Turkish hospitality.
Once a simple fishing village, today’s Kalkan is quietly sophisticated and postcard pretty with a few good quality low-rise hotels and apartments and a multitude of excellent roof-top restaurants offering all manner of culinary delights together with stylish and atmospheric Blues and Jazz bars. The village shops stay open till around midnight and are well stocked with interesting antiques, crafts, jewellery, clothing and accessories. The narrow streets twist down to the harbour, which is the focus of the village and here you can enjoy a meal whilst watching the world go by or looking at the array of elegant gulets, some of which are available for private hire. During the day, you can make use of one of the local ‘beach clubs’, engage in some of the local sporting activities (such as water-skiing, para-scending, scuba-diving, trekking etc), take a trip to one of the magnificent historical sites, drive a jeep up into the mountains, cruise on a gulet or simply relax by your pool.
The famous 18km long Patara beach is 45 minutes away by dolmus and Kas the nearby town 30 minutes. Of the historic sites in the region Saklikent Gorge, Turkey's deepest gorge, is a popular attraction. Kalkan is a very special place - first-time visitors will invariably return time and time again.
Kalkan curls snugly around an ancient harbour sheltered at the foot of the towering Taurus Mountains. The town overlooks a beautiful bay in which islands seem to magically float upon the shimmering sea. Narrow streets twist down to the harbour through the historic town and are lined with listed whitewashed villas with shuttered windows situated alongside small local specialty shops and restaurants. Overhead hang original ornately carved Ottoman timber balconies garlanded with brilliantly coloured bougainvillea cascading to the streets below.
One local attraction is the Thursday local market, offering a colourful array of locally produced fruit and vegetables, a sight not to be missed and this is literally down the road from the villa! Patara beach is also a must, framed by the Roman archway and the wonderful ampitheatre and numerous ruins and sarcophogi. Kalkan also provides and ideal base for exploring more of Turkey's rich history and it forms part of the Lycian Way, a great well trodden path. The beautiful turquoise sea is best sampled from one of the many gulets that line the local harbour, and the beaches and islands are just exquisite. The Sunken City is a perfect excursion by boat, and trips into the surrounding mountains and villages offers a great insight in the Turkish rural way of life, absolutely fascinating! There is so much to see and do......

"A dream villa in a dream setting"
This is a stylish villa in a beautiful setting. Inside, the rounded walls and the spiral staircase add interest and the villa is decorated in a unique style that seamlessly blends Turkish furnishings with English comfort. The kitchen and sitting room are well equipped and wi-fi is available. Outside, the private pool is beautifully maintained and the gardens are a delight. A special feature is the Turkish summer house which is a perfect place to relax in the shade. From the pool and the garden there are sweeping views of Kalkan bay flanked by the Taurus mountains. Friendly, helpful staff are on hand to offer help and advice on shopping, restaurants and day trips. This has been my third stay in this villa and I do not feel I will ever tire of returning.

"Probably the best location in Kalkan"
The Round House is an exceptional holiday villa in a superb position overlooking Kalkan.
The house has an open plan ground floor, ideal for relaxing, and the lounge looks out onto the pool and garden with the view of Kalkan and the sea beyond.
The bedrooms are well furnished and all of a good size.
The standard of maintenance is very high and the pool is crystal clear and well managed.
I suppose the penalty for such a brilliant location is the walk up the hill from the town centre. But the walk is surprisingly short and easy given the lovely view that you get as a reward. I also had no problem parking in town and near the supermarket when I drove.
Kalkan itself is a perfect holiday location with many good restaurants and facilities. I would particularly recommend the Turkish Market where prices are so low you will think that you have gone back 50 years in time!
