Standing on a hillside, just above the sea, this stunning, Mediterranean pearl is the ultimate luxury getaway.

It is a short distance to beach clubs, sports and entertainment facilities and a mini supermarket. Kalkan centre is less than a 5 minute drive or a 15 to 20 minute walk away.

The Turkish Mediterranean Coast region
Kalkan lies on the south west corner of the Turkish coast. It is one of the most beautiful and unspoiled areas of the Mediterranean, sometimes known as The Turkish Riviera; and deservedly so with crystal clear waters lapping the Lycian coastline and the majestic Taurus mountains forming a backdrop and often plunging directly into the sea. The climate is beautiful from April through to November. Kalkan is an almost disarmingly laid-back village in magical surroundings; a dash of relaxed sophistication and a seemingly limitless variety of places to explore make Kalkan irresistible.
If you want to holiday in a sleepy fishing village where you won't find any noisy discos, big hotels or loud traffic, Kalkan is the place for you. There is more to this region than the fantastic views; there are some wonderful beaches such as Kaputas and Patara; it abounds with places of interest, particularly if you like visiting ancient sites such as Patara, Kas, Tlos, Letoon and Xanthos which are all nearby and can be reached by private car or taxi. Alternatively a day at sea on a Gullet cruise is not to be missed.
Kalkan is a beautiful and sophisticated, bougainvillea-covered harbour town set in the heart of the old Lycian region. It is relatively cosmopolitan, with wonderful restaurants and great places to stay. The Toros Mountains provide a stunning backdrop, whilst the views across the bay are remarkable and have been described by certain commentators as the "best in the Med".
Strict conservation laws have ensured that the heart of the old village retains an authentic ambience that attracts (according to the Sunday Times) the sort of visitor who might also be enchanted by, say, Tuscany or the Dordogne. The result is a discerning mix of predominantly British and Scandinavian guests together with Istanbul Turks attracted by Kalkan's reputation within Turkey.
Winding cobbled streets, colourful shops and excellent harbour-side or roof terrace restaurants and bars are combined with stunning views – whether you are looking up to the dramatic Toros mountains behind the town, or down across the harbour to the broad sweep of the Mediterranean .
Eating out is excellent value. The restaurants in Kalkan offer an exceptionally high standard of food and service, many restaurants have romantic roof terraces looking out over Kalkan and others are so low-key that many visitors never notice them. The pretty cobbled streets of the old town are an Aladdin's cave with an abundance of shops selling clothes, jewellery, handbags, gifts etc. There is also a weekly market on a Thursday.
A local mini-market is situated a short 3 minute walk from Villa Defne. If this is too arduous to contemplate, the owners will quite happily deliver your provisions, including their delicious fresh baked bread, right to the door. A mini-bus route (hail) runs past the villa on a regular time-table and will take you into the centre of Kalkan in less than 5 minutes. A 5 minute walk takes you to the renowned Villa Mahal (a boutique hotel voted by the Times Newspaper as having one of the best views in the world) where its beach club can be used and where free water taxis can be taken to Kalkan harbour. Also a 5 minute walk away is the Patara Prince resort where you can take advantage of its facilities such as: water sports, volleyball, tennis courts, snooker and scuba diving. They also have a health club with sauna, massage and other spa treatments available. If you have children you may be interested in their kids club. Down the hill towards Kisla is a local Turkish kitchen, highly recommended if you want to try some authentic Turkish cuisine, plus they will deliver piping hot dishes to your door.
Kalkan was originally a fishing village and although it has grown into a popular holiday destination it still retains its traditional charm and the old quarter remains unspoilt.
