Villa | 2 bedrooms | sleeps 4
The Olive Garden Villa is a pretty, charming, 2 bedroom villa set in the beautiful resort of Patara Prince, Kalkan. The villa is set in an ideal, secluded location within the resort, but is still only a two minute walk from the Patara Prince hotel and a 5 minute walk down some steps to the two pools overlooking the sea. The villa is in a pretty position surrounded by olive trees and stunning pink bougainvillea. It has everything you need for a relaxing holiday in the picturesque resort of Kalkan and has recently been refurbished for the 2013 season. Inside the villa has traditional stone walls and marble floors that keep the rooms lovely and cool during the hot summer months. Air conditioning is available in both bedrooms if needed. It has a fully equipped kitchen and a lovely lounge area where you can sit and look out to sea. There is a large terrace outside with a covered roof which has stunning views towards sea and Kalkan beyond, perfect for relaxing with a glass of wine.

There are four shared swimming pools within the resort. The two closest to the villa(5 min walk) are the large main pool and the round pool. The large pool has stunning views over to Kalkan and also a small children's section. The smaller round pool is for adults only and offers a tranquil place to read. There is an infinity pool at the top of the resort and an indoor swimming pool.
The resort also has lovely bathing platforms with sunbeds on that have steps into the sea.
To get about the resort there is a shuttle bus service that runs daily from the bottom of the complex to the top. This stops just outside the hotel (2 min walk away) from the villa and can you go down to the pool if necessary or up to the infinity pool, supermarket and tennis courts at the top of the resort.
There is also a fantastic spa and Turkish bath in the hotel that offers a range of treatments. Patara Prince has it's own private access to the sea but does not have a beach. Instead there are steps into the sea from the platforms. The resort has been awarded a blue flag. Kalkan town does have a beach which is a short drive away or can be reached by the boat that leaves the resort. Further out there is the beautiful Kaputus beach (10 mins by car) or the stunning 18km long Patara beach (20 mins by car).
There is a small mini market at the top of the resort that can be used for your basic provisions. However on your arrival a welcome pack will be provided with the basic essentials. Kalkan town has a selection of larger supermarkets and a number of pretty shops and boutiques dotted down the pretty cobbled streets selling pottery, jewellery, clothes and a must for the ladies...handbags ! There are also traditional shops selling carpets and other Turkish goods.
Every Thursday there is a local market selling fruit, veg, spices clothes and gifts. It is a unique and enjoyable experience not to missed. Cheaper than Asda!
