House | 5 bedrooms | sleeps 10
Situated some 200 metres up from the waters edge in the fashionable Kömurluk area of Kalkan is this 5 bedroom (all en suite) fully serviced luxury villa with private pool. Just 10 minutes walk from the shops, restaurants and harbour of central Kalkan, the villa is conveniently located whilst offering a degree of privacy, exclusivity and superb direct sea and harbour views from its impressive terraces. The policy of the villa owners is to reinvest regularly in decor and facilities to ensure the property remains fully up to date. The owners and their family regularly use the villa which is more like a luxurious sea side home than the usual holiday rental!
Villa Kumanluk has 5 bedrooms, each with luxurious en suite shower and WC and air conditioning as well as ceiling fans. In the main house is a stunning master bedroom suite with completely uninterrupted views across Kalkan bay from the Super King size bed and direct access on to a spectacular balcony. Two further en suite double bedrooms (one ground floor) each also have sea views and super king size double beds. The fourth en suite bedroom has two single beds, providing flexibility for families. A further luxurious double bedded suite is located in a private location below the sun terrace, accessed by a spiral staircase and with its own spectacular sea views. An ideal room for a couple wanting some privacy from the main house.
Downstairs in the villa is a spacious through lounge/ kitchen dining area looking out to the sea. The very contemporary kitchen area has all Bosch appliances and is generously stocked with all utensils. The lounge area is also contemporary, with flat screen TV/DVD, and I-Pod dock system and Wi-Fi internet access. Floors throughout the villa are in cool white marble.
It is the outside space in Kalkan which is the most important and Villa Kumanluk does not disappoint. Large sun patios in polished travertine offer uninterrupted views across the bay and its ever changing vista : as good as any in the whole of Kalkan. The private swimming pool is just a step away for cooling off and a large covered open sun lounge, and plenty of sun umbrellas are ready to protect those with more sensitive skins. Outside dining is in the shade of a spacious canopied pergola with a choice of gas or charcoal barbecues as well as the kitchen oven and hob. The property is completely enclosed at the back for privacy.
Villa Kumanluk is serviced by a local team who provide 'meet and greet', daily rubbish removal, mid week bed linen and interior towel change. Swimming towels are also provided on a weekly basis.
Transfers to and from Dalaman Airport will be arranged by the owner on request ( paid locally) and other advice provided to assist your holiday enjoyment. You do not need a hire car to enjoy this property ( though one is easy to arrange if required).

The Turquoise Coast/Lycia region
The Lycian coast of Turkey is aptly named the Turquoise coast with its exquisite, clear blue sea water. The coast is dramatic and rocky,with occasional spectacular beaches such as Patara beach, voted by The Sunday Times as one of the most beautiful and unspoilt beaches in the Mediterranean, with 18 km of white sand only a 15 mins drive from Kalkan. Also nestling in the sands are the ruins of the ancient Lycian/Roman harbour city of Patara with spectacular ruins including an amphitheatre and one of the world's oldest parliament buildings (recently restored).
Kaputas is a beautiful small sandy beach 10 mins drive East along the coast from Kalkan, also accessible by boat. The climate alond the coast is considered to be the best in Turkey with 300 days sunshine every year and very low humidity.
Kas, a 30 minute drive away from Kalkan is worth a visit just for the journey alone! The road clings to the edge of the land providing spectacular views out to sea and of a variety of small islands. Kas was built on the ancient site of Amtiphellos
and ruins can still be seen scattered around the town, including a small, well preserved Hellenistic amphitheatre near to the harbour.Just off the coast is the small Greek island of Kastelorizo ( Meis in Turkish) which can be reached by boat from Kas every day, a recommended day trip but remember your euros!
Kalkan is on the route of the Lycian Way, which offers walkers stunning scenery and many archaelogical sites on its route. Good periods to walk the Lycian way are February to mid March, April to mid June, September to mid November.You can read more about the Lycian Way on www.lycianway.com
There are many ancient sites within easy reach of Kalkan including Xanthos, Pinara, Tlos and Patara. A little further afield are the well known sites of Kekova, Myra, Kale, Phaselis, Olympus and Ephesus.
Driving up into the mountains behind Kalkan through stunning scenery, you will come across a fertile plain that was once a prehistoric lake. Amongst the fields and orchards is the village of Bezirgan where you will find the real Turkey along with several Lycian rock tombs. Islamlar is also a lovely drive not far
up into the mountains from Kalkan. The village is justly famous for its trout farms with restaurants : virtually all the produce is grown locally. The famous Saklikent Gorge with its rush of icy water is the largest gorge in Turkey, and second deepest in Europe, and is again within easy reach from Kalkan.
The closest major town is Fethiye, one hours drive from Kalkan, with its large harbour, interesting shops and enormous weekly market.

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, Kalkan appeals to travelers looking for more than a "sun and sea" holiday. According to the Sunday Times, Kalkan attracts the kind of visitor who would also enjoy Tuscany or the Dordogne. The Guardian likens the town to "the Italian Riviera minus the poseurs."
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 Kalkan along Turkey's coast.
Kalkan curls around its historic harbour sheltered at the foot of the towering Taurus Mountains. The town overlooks a famously beautiful bay in which islands seem to magically float upon the shimmering sea. Narrow streets twist down to the harbour, lined with old whitewashed villas with shuttered windows situated alongside small local specialty shops and restaurants in historic buildings. Overhead hang original carved Ottoman Greek timber balconies garlanded with thick masses of brilliantly coloured bougainvillea cascading to the streets below. It is a very special place with a unique atmosphere.
