The Turkish Mediterranean Coast region
Kalkan belongs to the region of Antalya, which is also the name of its regional centre, located 200km away. Situated on Turkey's beautiful south west Mediterranean coast - also known as the Turquoise coast - , between the towns of Fethiye and Kas, the small town of Kalkan is nestled at the foot of the dramatic Taurus Mountains in a beautiful bay.
The heart of Kalkan is its Old Town, a maze of small cobbled streets winding down to the harbour. The streets are lined with many old Greek and Turkish buildings covered with bougainvillea and occupied by small boutique shops, restaurants and a few bar/cafes. Today the town is expanding out from this traditional centre, but the character of the Old Town, harbour and of course mosque remains unchanged.
Kalkan itself has a man made pebble beach with sunbed hire and facilities, but is better known for its beach clubs and its proximity to the famous 18km sandy beach at Patara and pretty Kaputas cove. The local beach clubs are private rock bathing platforms with intimate cafe/restaurants, reached by a 5 minute water taxi ride around the bay. The waters of Kalkan bay have a Blue Flag award for cleanliness and are ideal for all forms of water sports and diving.
Like much of Turkey, Kalkan is surrounded by historical and geographical sites. Pinara, Patara, Xanthos, Thlos and Myra cover ancient settlements from the Byzantine, Roman and Lycian periods. There are many more we could list. The river gorge at Saklikent and famous sand spit beach at OluDeniz are all less than an hour away.
Above all Kalkan is most famous for its high quality but reasonably priced restaurants. With over a 100 to choose from, there is something for everyone. Turkish Meze or starters, local made pizza, meat kebabs and fresh salads are all local fare, but you can also find International cuisine in the form of succulent steaks, fresh fish and pasta. Most popular are the roof terrace restaurants of the Old Town, where you can sit and watch the sun set overlooking the sea, but there is a range of restaurants to suit all budgets and tastes.
Kalkan, which was once the favourite summer resort for wealthy Turks, has now become internationally renowned and is developing as a cosmopolitan town with upper class tourism. The natural beauty of the bay, the Mediterranean climate and the friendliness of the local people attract visitors back time and time again.
Kalkan is ideal for all types of water activities. The Bay has a Blue Flag Award for cleanliness and is ideal for a PADI diving course or learning to sail or water ski. The bay has numerous beach clubs which can be reached with complimentary water taxi services from Kalkan harbour. If you looking for sandy beaches then Kaputas and Patara beaches are close by. Kaputas with its stunning gorge location just 5 minutes drive to the east and Patara with its 18km nature reserve beach 20 minutes to the west.
Keen walkers & hikers can explore parts of the ancient Lycian Way which passes directly through the town. On Patara Beach are early morning horse riding sessions and in the summer Yoga classes are available on the sea front at Villa Mahal. Canoe kayaking and tubbing are also available on the local river dependent on the season. Paragliding is also available for the not faint hearted.
Kalkan will inspire any photographer or painter with numerous photo and painting opportunities so don't forget to bring your camera and brushes. Turkish cooking classes are usually available through Guru's restaurant along with wine tasting evenings.The food is so good you will need to loose a few pounds when get back home.
The next nearest town to Kalkan is Kas, a 27km / 30 min drive away. Kas is worth visiting just for the stunning scenery on the coastal road drive. The nearest large town is Fethiye a 50 minute drive away with its bustling market, harbour and fish restaurants.
The area is steeped in history with many historic sites within a 45 minute drive of Kalkan including Xanthos, Tlos, Letoon, Pinara and the deserted Greek village of Kaya Koy. Demre is the birth place of St Nicolas who later became know as father christmas and his church remains there to this day. Other places of interest are Saklikent Gorge, Butterfly valley, and the archipelago islands of Kekova with the ancient sunken city and rock tombs. Close by are the traditional villages of Bezirgan and Islamlar set in the Taurus Mountains which give a glimpse of rural Turkish life and times gone by. Islamar is known for its fresh brown trout farms where you can enjoy freshly grilled trout with homemade salad, bread and chips overlooking the dramatic valley that runs to the sea.

The whole experience was wonderful Bridget was so helpful from begining to end, we didnt have to think, she sent us helpful tips and how to get from the airport. The weclome basket : wine, soft drinks, bread, butter and more kept us going all week. The villa was perfect, modern, clean the pool was fantatic and the view looking over to Kalkan was incredible. Last but now least the fact the water taxi was a one minute walk makes the villa perfect!! what more can I say - thank you we had a wonderful week x

"Villa Evin, what a great place..."
Having just come back from 2 weeks at Villa Evin we are busy looking to see if we can do the same holiday next year!
As a family of four, with two kids 7 and 11 Villa Evin gave us everything we wanted. A really wonderful Villa kept to a lovely standard, in a beautiful location just meters from the beach club. We spent lots of time just siting on the edge of the pool staring out across the bay drinking in the views and enjoying the luxury that the Villa gave us.
Kalkan is beautiful and I can really understand why so many of the people we bumped into told us this was their third of fourth time visiting. It is full of restaurants, really nice people and is genuinely nice place to be. You don't get people yanking you into their restaurant, the people were all very polite and very respectful of why you were there.
It was difficult to fault our holiday this year. A great Villa, a great location and wonderful weather. Full marks!
Thank you Chris for your review. We hope to see you again in Kalkan in the future.

"As good as it gets!"
We've had a fantastic time in the villa. We had our 2 small children with us and they loved the pool and their room. This villa was perfect for us.
Villa Evin is as good as it gets, and it was over our exceptions. The interior design is very bright and Scandinavian, which we really like. The house it self is very new and modern with a classic touch. Modern air conditions in every room. A Garage with roof so the car is not hot when we needed it. 2 small parasols for the sun beds, but my favorite was the big parasol that was foldable to cast a huge shadow over the dinner table by the pool. So we had breakfast there every morning.
We love that the owner have attention to details, like the snacks & drinks in the fridge when we arrived, the towels were folded like Teddy bears on the childrens beds and the DVD's in the living room for us to use.
We loved that there was nothing missing, like the water tank with extra bottle, the dishwasher tablets, the washing powder, Toilet paper, Bed sheets etc etc.
The pool was very clean and they added enough chemicals to keep it that way.
I wasn't so keen on putting all the money upfront before we arrive, but you can really trust the owner and her business is legit. She also lives a few houses away if needed.

"A beautiful villa in a stunning location"
The villa is beautifully maintained, loved its simplicity but at the same time is very stylish. The pool area is just lovely, spacious and spotlessly clean. The Kisla area is wonderfully quiet but not remote. The water taxi to Kalkan was just perfect. We enjoyed this place so much that we have booked again for 2013. Kaputas beach was stunning and well worth visiting. The long journey from the airport is well worth it but if arriving at night it's best to arrange a taxi through the owner.

"Great location just outside Kalkan"
Lovely villa in a great location, just short water taxi to Kalkan. The owner looked after us and all our needs eg transfers and car hire. Just a personal thing the beds were extremely hard as were the pillows but like I say a personal pref.
The pool was very warm without heating and a good size for the villa.
Air con was superb and all fixtures and fittings worked.
The beach club next door is great for relaxing and playing alike and was not noisy at night.
Thank you for your comments. I have noted in particular your reference to the beds being firm which is due to the fact they were brand new when you stayed and have yet not softened with use. I will look into some mattress toppers for 2013 and will offer a choice of pillows for our future guests.
