The Turquoise Coast/Lycia region
A small peaceful Mediterranean resort and fishing town on the beautiful Turquoise Coast of Turkey, Kalkan has not been touched by mass tourism. More sophisticated than the usual resort town, this area appeals to travellers looking for more than a 'sun and sea' holiday. Because of its great charm, Kalkan has a growing number of perennial visitors who say the town is the only holiday destination they would choose to visit repeatedly. There is simply no other town quite like this along Turkey's coast.
The old town 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. It is a very special place. Not only is this town is one of Turkey's most beautiful, but unlike other Turkish coastal resorts Kalkan's main economy is tourism and therefore its citizens put much pride and effort into the town's historic preservation. Because of this Kalkan has retained the texture of its history with its distinctive Greek architecture (it was once a Greek and Turkish fishing village). Very strict building codes keep the town small and architecturally blended with the historic heart of the town known as 'Old Town'.
Besides the famous historic architecture, the many excellent restaurants contribute to the special atmosphere of the resort. Good dining has always been the way of life here. In fact, Kalkan is said to have the highest number of restaurants and bars per inhabitant or square metre on Turkey's Turquoise Coast. Additionally, Kalkan is especially renowned for its numerous roof-top terrace restaurants and bars which offer a wonderful view of the town, sea and stars. You can also sit at one of the many fine harbour-side restaurants and watch the fishermen leave early in the morning as you tuck in your breakfast, or see them return with the day's catch in the evening.
This is a small town (of only a few thousand) which creates a wonderful intimate feeling. But do not let its size to mislead you! There is plenty to do in and around Kalkan. During the day the town is surprisingly empty as most guests choose to swim or explore the multitude of beautiful ancient Lycian and natural sites of the area. However, everything changes in the evening when Kalkan bursts alive for a long, festive night. Kalkan has many special qualities, but without a doubt it is the people of the resort who make the town extra special.

Described by many as the jewel of Turkey's Southern Turquoise Coast, Kalkan certainly has much more to offer than outstanding natural beauty. Nestled against the backdrop of the Taurus Mountains and lapped by the warm waters of the Eastern Mediterranean Sea, this beautiful village will spread her charm, hospitality and powers of karma to all who visit her. Lazy days, sophisticated nights, an abundance of superb restaurants, along with some of the nicest locals you could wish to meet are just a few words to scratch the surface. Unspoilt by mass tourism, yet offering plenty for all to enjoy, Kalkan will present you with an idyllic holiday destination - you'll simply want to return to time and time again.

"Fantastic villa in a pretty village"
We stayed at Villa Lucia in June, myself and my partner and our 9 month old baby. The villa is lovely and very comfortable, exceeded our expectations and we really didn't want to leave. There were 2 good baby cots and highchairs for us to use and a stair gate for the bottom of the stairs which was great for our little one.
The kitchen was very well equipped, the living room very comfortable with great tv (better than the UK!) and lovely views out to the pool/garden and beyond to the sea (especially nice in the evening when the pool is lit up). The master bedroom has an enormous bed, we slept really well and the air con throughout was very welcome. The garden is lovely and well maintained by the guys who visit each morning and evening to treat the pool etc.
Nice touches with the vast CD collection, free phone for local numbers, cool box and ice packs for days out to the beach etc. and all the information provided by the owners in the info booklet (really helpful).
The villa is approx. 10-15 minute stroll to the centre of the old town or a quick taxi ride away. Kalkan itself is a pretty old village with lots of excellent restaurants – Sofra and Doy Doy were our favourites. There were also good BBQ facilities for dining al fresco for when you want to stay home and a good butcher in town. Many of the food places will also make deliveries to the villa if you phone orders through as we did for lunch occasionally.
Thoroughly recommended and hope to return again one day… Loved it.
