The Turkish Mediterranean Coast region
Rugged and forested, pine-clad mountains in Lycia descent right to the coastline with its gulfs and coves, making the region top yachting area in the country.
Geographically, Lycia occupies Teke Peninsula, the land between Gulf of Fethiye to the west and Gulf of Antalya to the east, in the southwestern corner of the country. Lycia forms southern half of Mu?la Province and western third of Antalya Province, which divide Lycia into roughly equal halves along north-south flowing E?en Çay?, or Xanthos River as it was known in ancient times.
Ancient Lycia was a democratic federation of city states, which is thought to have influenced the United States constitution. Today, most towns in the region have some remnants from the ancient Lycian civilization, in the form of sacrophagii, distinctive rock tombs, or city ruins.
Lycia is an independent traveller destination and tourism in the region evolves around small guesthouses and pleasant coastal towns, some of which such as Olympos still preserving their hippy-ish atmosphere.
The historic town of Kalkan is situated on Turkey's gorgeous Lycian Coast and was once a simple Turkish/Greek fishing village. Today's Kalkan is quietly sophisticated and postcard pretty with a few good quality low-rise hotels and privately owned villas, a multitude of excellent roof-top restaurants offering all manner of culinary delights, together with a good selection of of stylish and atmospheric blues and jazz bars. Unlike some other Turkish coastal resorts, Kalkan's main economy derives from tourism and consequently, it's inhabitants put much effort and pride into the town's historic preservation. As a result of very strict building regulations and the efforts of the Kalkan Foundation, the town has retained it's charm and special ambiance.
The wonderful hospitality of the Kalkan people is another reason why the first-time visitor invariably returns time after time. The village shops stay open 'til around midnight and are well stocked with interesting antiques, crafts, jewellery, carpets and clothing. The narrow streets of the old town are lined with whitewashed shuttered buildings festooned with brightly coloured bougainvillea intermingled with shops and terrace-topped restaurants. These 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 by looking at the array of elegant 'gulets'.
During the day, you can make use of one of the many 'beach clubs', visit the local market (Thursday), engage in some of the local sporting activities (such as water-skiing, parascending, scuba diving, trekking etc.), take a trip to one of the historical sites, drive a Jeep up into the mountains, cruise on a gullet or simply relax by your pool.
The popular Kalamar Beach Club is a 10 minute walk away from Villa Vanilla. Kalkan's pebbly town beach is a 20 minute walk away and the beautiful Patara Beach, a 12 mile stretch of unspoiled golden sand, is a 15 minute drive away.
